Week 6 High Command

  So another good week at The Complex we had 5 Journeymen League players come in for at least one game.  This was our last week at 25 pts, we have one week at 35 pts with the battlebox then we open it up for the home stretch for a free for all 35 pts! Ending November 16th with our 35 pt Steamroller.

  I would like to say that we have also had a lot of people interested in the game and that is exciting to me in the past few weeks we've added another three people who bought battleboxes and are having fun learning which hopefully is a good sign that I'm doing my job.  Also a few more veterans from the surrounding area have found us and have shown some interest.  All are welcome! We have built up a good amount of terrain and table space. We are here to play and have a good time!
  Now in addition to our Warmachine/Hordes Demos available I will also be running a weekly High Command Demo. Right now we only have the Hordes edition we are trying to get a hold of the Warmachine one.  If there is interest there are special edition cards and tournaments we can run. But for now I'll be demoing.

  Also I've had some interest shown in the Iron Kingdoms RPG and I'm going to shoot for a demo day on November 2nd.  With at least two sessions one starting at 1 and another starting around 5.  The demo is a ready to go and show you the system.  I have a copy of the rule book and we will have a comprehensive character creation to go along with it.  
  This doesn't mean there won't be Warmachine our league players will be in need of games and pick-up games.  Just to remind you league guys your opponent does not need to be in the league they just need to field a list at the same point level.

  Don't forget NOVEMBER 16th! For the uninitiated you will need to bring 2 Lists, characters cannot be duplicated.  Hope to see you there!

  Also on a another side note our FoodMachine is scheduled for December 14th and haven't heard from many of you and I think we are going to do a monetary donation.  Cash or foodstuffs.  Let me know if you're interested as we do our part this Holiday season.

25pt Tournament

Well this Saturday brought our 2nd tournament at The Complex, a 25 pt standard, in which we introduced our team to Scenarios.  We managed 7 players, I chose not to play to make it even giving us 6 combatants.  Two Legion, Two Khador, One Cryx, and One Cygnarian.  I know a lot of my regulars couldn't make it but thanks to Matt and Joe, the Khador players, who were first timers to our growing group.

It looked like a sure win after 2 rounds but after loosing the last round eButcher ended up going to strength of Schedule against Rhyas.  And Rhyas squeaked out the win by a hair.  All in all we had a few wins by scenario and only one game that came to kill points. Everyone seemed to have a good time. Thanks to everyone.

Now looking forward NOV. 16th! 35pt Steamroller!  This is 2 weekends before Thanksgiving so hopefully you'll all be available.  I've ordered the official coins and certificates so the top three winners will get their steamroller certificate and coin.  This will also be the last event of our first Journeymen League and good time to rack up some late league points and push for the Points or Victories win.

As I have discussed with a few others of you, I'm contemplating another Journeymen-esque league from which we will expand the beginning casters and we will begin at 25 pts working our way to 50 pts.  And since it's the holiday season I'm thinking we will start the week after Christmas or 1st weekend of 2014. If you're interested let me know by FB or stop in and say Hi!  I'm at The Complex Saturdays from 1-10 running demos, playing league games, always ready to theorymachine it up.

Also don't forget Foodmachine!  Info in the upper right hand linky.  Also added monetary option where you can donate $$$ in place of cans. 1$ gives you 2 can tickets.  So if you can bring in your cans, otherwise please bring in cash donations starting this week I will begin accepting donations for your Foodmachine ticket.  A minimum donation on 10$ or 20 cans are necessary to play, which gives you 20 tickets to break the rules.

Week 5 of our Journeymen and we are 1/2 way done that's right midway through.  One more week at 25 pts then get your lists ready for 35!  It's not to far off that your lists become unrestricted and field whatever you want! Hope to see you all there Saturday!

Also Josh picked up High Command Hordes and I've been reading the rules so if anyone is interested we will try and run a demo!

Also The Complex is now a Battlefoam supplier so for the Non battlefoam miniature goer. Here is an introduction.  They make quality foam and high strength especially when in comparison to the Sabol foam.  So if you don't have some I would recommend it even if you just buy a piece that say fits your Cavalierly models or weird spear unit, or collossal/gargantuan.  Then get a bag later or just pick up the foam for your own transport container. I'll have one to view at the store shortly for you to check out.

Odd spears fit nicely, and small based troopers fit in standards

Special Jack foam is available for your Warmachine Faction

Along with special Warbeast foam for hordes.  Also there is special Cav foam

Even without a bag we all know how crappy it is to transport our Collassals and Gargantuans

Standard pre-cut foam fits most well and a lot of models at that.

Again big thanks to those who came out and I hope we will have a good group together for the first Steamroller!  Look forward to seeing you at the Complex next Saturday!
