So long Malifaux

The last of my Malifaux stuff is gone.  I sold the whole lot on ebay a couple weeks ago. I had a couple problems with Malifaux. Wyrd is slow on releasing models. Expect to wait a year to be able to play with everything in your force from any new book. They also said their…

 

Adepticon 2010

Adepticon let Flames of War into the event for the first time this year. Game Korps ran the three tournaments this year. There were two 900 point tournaments, a mid-war one on Friday and a late-war one on Saturday. There was also the two-day 1750pt mid-war tournament running both Friday and Saturday.  In addition to…

 

A new VP system

If you look at the Flames of War tournament victory points system, you’ll notice its pretty flawed. Its designed to represent that you should get a higher quality of victory for preserving your troops lives just like a real commander should. Points are awarded based on the victor’s losses. 6-1 for no losses, 5-2 for…

 

Ironman After Action Report @ GenCon

So Ironman was an interesting format. I didn’t do so well, but that was largely virtue of the first game. It was a bit of a snowball effect as I expected. Click on the images for full size animated GIF’s of the action. Game one I faced German pioneers in hold the line. This really…

 

Armies of GenCon

I ran around during the painting competition and took pictures of as many armies as I could. Unfortunately I didn’t get anywhere near all of them. These are all from the Grand Tournament. The Ironman armies were never on display as there was no painting competition. The last 5 pictures are the prize armies from…

 

Ironman @ GenCon Thoughts

Just general impressions here, detailed after action report later with animated Gifs of my battles. Ironman was an interesting format that I enjoyed, but I think needs a few tweaks to work well. The general idea is that you need to win with economy of force. That winning a Pyrrhic victory isn’t a victory in…

 

GenCon Tables

There were alot of really really nice tables at GenCon this year. Most if not all were player provided. These shots are all from the start of the Ironman tournament. I may have missed a couple of tables if any were added for the grand tournament the next day. Many of these were re-arranged on…

 

Surprise! Rules Changes.

For a competitive event to run fairly and smoothly rules must be applied consistently and in accordance with the standards published ahead of time for the event. Competitors should be made aware of any deviations from the standard rules system by the organizing body so that they may adjust their forces and tactics to suit…

 

Off to GenCon!

I’m off to GenCon Indy tomorrow! I know I’ve been tardy with making new posts, but most of the stuff I’ve been working on recently I’ve wanted to keep secret for the two big Flames of War tournaments. I’ll be playing in both the Ironman tourmanment and the Grand tourney this year. Last I heard…

 

Sicily Tournament at Games Plus

First of all, I want to thank Jeff for setting up and running this tournament. I know that these things can be a lot of work, and I appreciate all the effort that he put in to making things work. On Saturday I went to a tournament themed on Sicily for Flames of War. It…
