The Drawbridge Games Journeyman League that I am running just hit its fifth week, so it was time to move up to 35 points. This week was all painting for me, as I added two new Warcasters to my total but didn’t manage to squeeze a game in (when there’s an odd number, the league organizer sits out). That takes me up to 28 points painted for January and 2016 in the one point-per-day challenge.
I wasn’t too keen on Goreshade until I read some of his fluff that links to him plaguing Retribution of Scyrah. Definitely a cool incarnation of the model.
Skarre2, Queen of the Broken Coast. I really like how the model turned out. At first I felt it was an odd pose, but now I’m really digging it. I’m still searching for which caster(s) in Cryx I feel comfortable with, and there’s some strong reasons that it might be Skarre2 (defensive feat and flexible strategy are two strong items in the plus column).
We had great turnout for the Journeyman league overall (fourteen total players)–the tables were packed with generals clashing.
Ryan’s Iron Lich Asphyxious army versus Tony’s Caine-led Cygnar force. Ryan has become the come-from-behind warnoun assassin of note for the league. He caught me with it once, and this time he caught Caine as well. Never count Asphyxious out.
The controlled advance of Kevin’s Puppet Masters force led by Exulon Thexus faces off against Dan’s fast advance and shooting-heavy Sorscha2 army.
There’s no match up more classic than Kreoss versus Sorscha.
At the next table over, it was an epic version of the same match, as Terry’s Kreoss2 faced off against Colton’s Sorscha2.
Blackbane’s Ghost Raiders realize the Doom Reavers have magic weapons.
A wild match up of Tony’s Cygnar (with Caine) versus Rico’s Legion of Everblight being led by Thagrosh. Bad luck ruled the day for Legion, as there was a critical moment in a Mutagenisis assassination run ruined by an over-ambitious Naga Nightlurker that killed rather than only damaged the target that was being softened up.
No new progress for me on the battles front, but a great day of gaming nonetheless. This Journeyman league is really working well, making Thursday nights a great night of gaming in the Pittsburgh area.
