Maddy, Carver, and More

Well we had our tourney yesterday but I forgot my camera so I will only do a little run down at the end. Here is my finished pMadrak for the January PTT. I have also done some more work on Les' Carver and he is nearly done. I need to do one/maybe two more highlights on the skin, skulls, tusks and fingernails and he is done.

Once again he is in need of some statics grass but that will be batched later on. I also picked up some army painter grass tufts I am interested to try out on some of these bases.....maybe I will use Carver as my test subject :)

Here is the BMMD himself. I have really enjoyed this model and after yesterday I am having a harder time not picking one up for myself and starting a pig army (damn you scudo). I might need to do a little more work on his fur shoulder as it doesn't seem to have enough contrast.

We had a good turn out for the tourney yesterday with 10 players showing up. we had three guys make a 2.5 hour drive from buffalo to join in which was cool. The faction breakdown was as follows:


We were playing SR2012 with 37min death clock. My two lists were as follows. Character restriction makes list building a bit interesting. I can put Janissa in almost every list I play so I miss her when she doesn't come along for the fun.

Jarl Skuld, Devil Of Thornwood (*6pts)
* Troll Impaler (5pts)
* Earthborn Dire Troll (10pts)
* Trollkin Runebearer (2pts)
Cylena Raefyll & Nyss Hunters (Cylena and 9 Grunts) (10pts)
Gatormen Posse (Leader and 4 Grunts) (9pts)
Saxon Orrik (2pts)
Totem Hunter (3pts)
Chief Madrak Ironhide (*6pts)
* Slag Troll (6pts)
* Troll Axer (6pts)
* Mulg the Ancient (12pts)
* Trollkin Runebearer (2pts)
Krielstone Bearer and 3 Stone Scribes (3pts)
* Krielstone Stone Scribe Elder (1pts)
Fell Caller Hero (3pts)
Janissa Stonetide (3pts)
Troll Whelps (2pts)
Trollkin Champion Hero (3pts)

Game one I played Khador and being down 2 control points to none and about to give up another I had to go for the assassination. I feated and after some movement shenanigans from crusher applied Mulg to face....W

Game 2 I played Scudo playing Carver and piggies. I played Jarl this time. This game was back and forth and ended when my deathclock all honesty he was going to win on scenario next turn anyways. I did get a new respect for the gun boars with Carver and I now have to fight the urge to start pigs....again damn you Scudo....L

Game 3 was a blast with a lot of back and forth with PG_Z1G1 playing pVlad. I went back to pMaddy for this game. Our forces met in the middle of the battlefield and went to town. I looked to have the upper hand when he made 9 yes 9! tough rolls in a row totally destroying Mulgs crusher run. The counter attack from Drago and forces almost but not quite killed Mulg. At this point Mulg was not happy...he ate 2 whelps and applied tree to face killing everything near him. It got to the point were we both had 'lock/'caster and some support left. Maddy charges a BoK Vlad in an attempt to end the game. We came down to the final fury left on Maddy and Vlad at ~ half life. Needing a nine to hit I had to try and get it so I could boost damage if I hit....dice damn. OK now I needed a 12 on 3d6 to kill him....dice=14. WOW! I guess that made up for the 9 tough rolls.....W

All in all the day took longer than it should have but was a good time. Thanks to the Buffalo guys for rolling in and hopefully team Spite will roll out that way this summer some time.
