August Summer Showdown

goldstepstuff:

So, when I decided I wanted to do the August Summer Showdown, the first thing I had to do was pick a model to proxy.

When Cyriss came out I fell totally head over heels for them. And when my friends abandoned their collections and did trade for some of my old models, I did a great job of filling in a lot of gaps. So deciding on a model to proxy was easy…

I had all the jacks (if you include a little creative magnet work). I had all the casters but Iron Mother (who is 3 models). You can’t proxy units. The battle engine is really 4 models. And I had all the solos but the enigma foundry which my wife won for me in July Summer Showdown… so it was the UA or nada.

SUMMER SHOWDOWN: July Winners

rollis-paints:

Firstly I would like to thank everyone who participated in the July contest, and I hope you all choose to participate in the August contest as well. Just because you won doesn’t disqualify you from playing and submitting again!

I enjoyed all the reports, and seeing different army lists and strategies is always interesting to me. I have to admit that choosing for the “Rollis’ Choice” winner was very difficult, as all the reports were well written and none of them were a ‘chore’ to get through.

So without further ado, the winners.

Summer Showdown: July

Cyriss v Skorne: Axis v Makeda1

I finally got in my game for the summer showdown for rollis-paints summer giveaway!

My friend Rick has been the dominant player in our area for the last year or so until last July when an event called “Civil War” kinda ruined his mojo. Civil War is a event run by a chain of hobby-game stores where the store on the north side and the one on the south side compete in several events, Warmachine-Hordes, 40k, MtG, MERCs, X-Wing, and so forth to be able to have your store take home a chintzy trophy and lord it over our friends. Any last year Rick lost the game allowing the south to fine 5 to 4… Well, he lost 3 games… and he found himself in a funk. To break out of this funk he decided earlier this year that he wanted to see what else he could do with Skorne — surely the solution to everything isn’t “liberally apply bronzeback.” And he came up with the idea of “ranged Skorne” and more than anything, found that once he started winning with one hand tied behind his back, putting the bronzeback back in make most games pretty easy.

The worst thing about owning a bunch of reptiles

Is never being able to decide what to get next.

Upcoming Hordes Releases!

Revealed today, posted here for your viewing pleasure.

Legion of Everblight:

Obviously a plastic kit, very cool. Looks terrible to magnetize though.

Circle Orboros:

Word in the street is that he can only take Wolds and has Synergy. Yeeeeeep.

Skorne:

A repackage of the full unit. Seems like a good idea.

Minions:

Unf. Look at how amazing that model is. Also, glad to see Tatzylwurms being used for more than 1 model. Maybe a minion non-character beast will follow?
