Tourney, D&D plus Sickness

Well, well, well It's been a while So lets fill you in.

Thursday my D&D group ran through the streets of Sharn escaping the city guard, found Silver-tongue, got the information about Lord Blood being the more than human the "Chained God" Dun, Dun, Dun...... And how he is trying to become unchained!  They seem to be enjoying the twists and making it their own. One, a Minotaur Paladin, has started a Church in order to have BANE be recognized as a supreme deity.  Another just started a workshop where he hired a Mage to build clockwork Golems.  It's nice change actual role-playing.

Then I regressed and felt like absolute crap again. This persisted for another day and half. Then Saturday morning Game Geeks had their Steamroller 2011 tournament.  I participated playing Gators.

Bog Trog lead the way
A good turnout twelve all in all
Table in the back room
A table in the fish bowl
The 4x4 Room
Nice terrain
The first scenario was Sacrifice, Barnabas took on a mangled metal list of Vlad.  The player was still very new to the game and despite a few miscues he did very well.  He unfortunately did not know that Hordes Warlocks can transfer damage. The Spitter and Barnabas combined to put an end to Vlad. Victory by assassination.

Gators Go!
Second Round meant Kill Box every caster for himself.  Barnabas took on pThagrosh. After a few rounds and a showing of the Bog Trog who took out a warmonger and occupied the war chief, along with the Carnivean.  Barnabas used his feat knocking all of Everblight down, then Thags attempted the charge but there was a pond and a swamp in the way so Thagrosh failed his charge ending his activation.  Barnabas dispatched him with ease.

Bog Trog Ambushers!
The Battle Begins!
The Exciting Conclusion
The final scenario was Incursion.  Unfortunately for Barnabas we ran into Mulg, and an Earthborn Dire Troll. Things were looking good Barnabas was sitting on two transfers with DEF 16 and ARM 21 unfortunately the Earthborn double-handed threw a gatormen at Barnabas and with Calandra's feat hit him, knocking him down. Mulg then Slammed the Wrastler through Barnabas but out of reach with Barnabas.  Then the Pyg Burrowers charged a knocked down Barnabas and with the final Burrower finished him off.  Ending the win streak and my chances at the final round.

All in all it was a good game but a short one.  Sol and his Trolls went on to play Larry and his Trolls for the final round.  I ended 2-1 but with the lack on control points took 6th out of twelve.  Here's a few more pictures from the tournament and thanks to all those who came to Game Geeks Steamroller 2011.

A good turn out not our largest but 12 all in all
Legion V. Legion
Karl's Thunderhead Great Paint Job
One of our newest Warmachine players great color scheme
Now I am back to painting Ork's, speaking of Orks the Orc and Goblin Fantasy book and the Arachnarok Spider are in at the Store and Rob has begun assembling and painting his Spider force.  I will have more pictures eventually.
