Who's the Boss 2013

  Well... Who's the Boss 13' not without a hitch but not to bad. We definitely learned a bunch and are looking forward to running another one next year. So Saturday looked at first to be a good sized tournament turnout then old man winter reared his ugly head threatening us with over a foot of snow... And que the cancellations! It's ok I'm afraid if everyone had showed it might have gotten ugly so it all worked out for the best.

  Big thanks to those who made it out and bore with me through it all.  We do have some improvements to make for next year. But all in all I think most matches went well, it was interesting to see Harbinger running Trollbloods up against eKreoss and Legion.  Fun was had by most I would say... :D

  Looking forward to next month and the New Year! January 11th brings us our first tournament and I thought why not go from broke SO we are going to have a team tournament but you have no idea who your team-mate will be.  "Best-BUDS" bring one 35 point list and you will be matched up with a Buddy, and here's another twist.... You'll both be playing together and your buddy will become friendly Faction... :D Let the silliness ensue!

    Lastly assembling the Arch Angel.... It's been a process.... But it's done now well Primed now Colleen will paint.

Prepping For Who's The Boss 13'

Woohoo! Ok so with the holiday season in full swing I've been a little busy so this is going to be short and sweet.  I'd like to thank everyone who have come out in support of our little gaming group and we are continually expanding, building more tables and terrain.

This week we had a good group in around 6 or 7 guys and had a lot of fun practicing who's the boss!  Seeing Rahn with Khador, Kaya with Convergence, Garryth with Cryx and Harkovich with Galleon!  Lots of silliness and learned a lot of possible hiccups!  Still this event looks like it is going to be a blast. So far we have 87 caster available! Woo! I luckily found most of the cards to my casters still looking for my Scaverous, Venethrax, Rask, and eBaulder cards but hopefully I'll find it.

Thinking forward to January 2014! Idea right now is for a Tournament on January 11th! Thinking that we will try out a "Best-Buds" Tournament... :D This is a spin on the usual Team tournament no prepping for this one... Right now up for discussion, nothing set in stone. But you bring a 25 or 35 pt list and pairings will be made once everyone is registered.  By ME! Muwah-hahahaha! Another twist is teams play on the same table! Alternating team 1 player 1 team two player 1 then team 1 player 2 followed by team 2 player 2!  Hehehe!!! Your "Best-Bud" will become a "Friendly" model not faction but spells can be cast on them feats effect them :D   SO...... Let me know what you think!  I'll be talking to those of you who come around about it and flushing out the details.

Head on over to the FB page for updates!  Looking forward to this weekend!

Steamroller 2013!

  First and foremost THANK YOU! We ended up having 16 people!  A record for our new little group and with only 4 of the regulars making it.  Had two great groups one from Augusta and one from Boston!  I've been planing this as many of you know for about two months. Despite a few glitches it went off with flying colors! I learned a lot, this being my first steamroller that I've run.

  Definitely found a few things to work on, one of those being more tables!  As it was if anyone else had shown we would have had to get really creative.  I have a few that I'm working on so we can get that number up to 20+!!! We have the room but not the tables.  

  Again Thank you Thank you to all the people who showed and the encouragement.  We are growing and that makes me happy.  Hopefully we will see some of you at our future events!!

  After talking with some of you and not hearing anyone interested in a Foodmachine so scrap that idea for the time being.  SO..... we are replacing it with a 35 pt Who's the Boss!?  For those of you who don't know Who's the boss compiles a group of Warlocks, and Warcasters, you spin a wheel between rounds and slect a caster at random it becomes a friendly faction caster and focus and fury are replaced to match your faction.  I will post the rules that have been compiled by others.  Don't worry if you only own one caster, a few of us have a large choice of casters and will bring extras to make it more interesting. Just remember DECEMBER 14TH!  

  So try and set that date in your mind get into The Complex any Saturday for pickup games! Our little group has been gaining over the past few months and we have a bunch of new to the game players along with quite a few veterans. I'll be there with my Skorne getting it ready for TempleCon!

  Thanks again hope to see you all for our next Event! Congrats to Trever Attridge - Cygnar for his 1st place finish, Brendan Gauthier - Skorne 2nd, and Steve Pisani - Convergence 3rd!

  Oh and before I forget this was the end to our Journeymen league we started a few months ago and had some drop off but Josh - Legion ended up winning both the Destroyer (Game Pts) and the Journeymen awards! And Nik Dumont - Trolls picked up the Creator Award (Hobby) Prizes will be awarded this Saturday! Congrats on a completing our first league!  We  suffered a good amount of drop off but quite a few made it to the end.  

  I am planning on running another league if we have interest this a advanced Journeymen starting with a select group of casters at 25 pts and advancing to 50 pts! I'll have a signup sheet at The Complex to gauge interest looking at starting the beginning of January and running a standard 6 week league!

  Without further adieu here are some pictures I tried snapping while running around!
