Scourgin' on a Sunday: Starter Set + Opressor Commander

Greets again fellow Commanders! Today is sunday, and my brother Tom's Scourge starter set arrived this week, and has been waiting to assimilate some paint.

Tom's new to Dropzone commander, although he's played many of the war games I have over the last few years. We mostly spend weekends painting and modelling together, since coming back from uni it's kind of been how we've spent quality time.

Anyway, Tom's usually a goodie two shoes (sorry bro :P) and plays good guys (he's a big Cygnar fan for you warmahordes players out there), So this is a big change of pace for him, nevertheless he was just as enthusiastic as ever to get these evil little jellyfish ready for Karl's slow grow league.

We assembled everything Friday, so we hit the ground running today with painting. Step by Step and finished pics included, So click past the cut and enjoy!

Dropfleet Commander: Admiral Beta Test Day

Greets fellow commanders! I have just returned from the admiral beta test in sunny Croydon! Was an absolute blast to finally get our hands on Dropfleet Commanders rules, let alone some swiftly cast up resin versions of the minis we're all waiting for.

The event had a huge turnout and the atmosphere was really jovial and excited. The Hawk guys had their swag stand set up as well, and well, in DZC terms, I've sorted out my poor AA coverage issue.

I'm such a tease.

Obviously I can't say much about the specifics of the rules, nor can I post statlines and the like, but I can give my honest impressions.

Click past the jump, and cut yourself a big old slice of hype cake.

Ildari's Irregulars: The Mercury: Part 2. A Mercurial performance

Greets fellow Commanders!

Well, due to something of a late start and a ticking clock it wasn't conducive to document a full batrep this time (I'm borrowing a decent camera for next time however)

But here are the cliff notes to the battle and the Mercury's contribution in particular.
(please note, this is a cut down, anecdotal account of the game, due to being pushed for time and not having access to my Camera or note taking supplies it has to take this form, in future accounts of games will have dedicated preparations made.)

I have clearly done something to enrage the dice gods, as almost every roll I made went against me.

This happened more than once, I'm not kidding.
