Today was a very productive day with friends Dustin and Evan swinging by to help out Brian and myself work on terrain for this year’s upcoming Merry Mayhem event weekend. You haven’t seen much about Merry Mayhem specifically on this site, but scoot over the http://merry-mayhem.com and check out all of the information, dates, and how to register. In the mean time, while your here, look at all of the new terrain coming to the table this year at the event!
Hey all, if you are interested in seeing one of my games played out from Adepticon 2016 US Bolt Action Nationals, check out this video by Sean (Wahoo Warrior). It’s one of the better battle reports I have watched regarding Bolt Action games and goes through the game play, the entire game and his thoughts as the game played out. If you like the video, make sure you subscribe to his channel!
Another year of Adepticon is here and back again. I went again this year and had an amazing time. Pictures from the event can be found in my Google Gallery.
The long break is over. Sorry folks about that. Between Brian’s classes and Conesy’s personal issues, we just haven’t been able to put our best foot forward this fall. I know you are all ramped up to hear more about Warhammer: Age of Sigmar.
In this episode, Brian and the Conesy cover Merry Mayhem 2015 which was a Warhammer: Age of Sigmar event. They then go over their thoughts now that Age of Sigmar has been out for about half a year as to what they thing works and makes it enjoyable and what doesn’t work so well for them.
With that, let’s roll those dice! Wisco’s for the win!!!!
So, with thoughts to planning something for upcoming Merry Mayhem, there has been a lot of questions as to what is right and what to do for the event. To try to get ahead of it, I wrote up a rules packet for an event and had some of the local players come out and play in a narrative, competitive event. I can’t remember if I posted the rules pack before, but here it is: Opening of the Heavens Rules Pack
So we had 6 players out, which really wasn’t enough to really showcase the way I had things laid out, but gave us all a chance to play some games. Instead of doing the originally scheduled 4 games, we cut it back to three and went at it. Overall, I think everyone had a great time playing the battleplans we used, which ended up being Pre-Emptive Strike, Watchtower, and The Ritual. The last one, the radius for the The Ritual effect seemed to be a little big, but the other scenarios weren’t too bad. Using a sideboard for players to swap in and change up their lists was super helpful and kept things like summoning in check while also allowing players to switch up their roles a bit as attacker and defender.
Couple of things I did take away from it though that I think could be an improvement. The sideboard for Undead in particular should be a bit bigger, maybe 50% of their force rather then a third. The ritual battleplan could be improved. Another thing I took away is that it wouldn’t be much to increase rounds to 2 hours and up the wound counts to 100 wounds or so. I do think that could open up a level of new broken issues with that level of points. I am setting up some games now to see what I think about the balance at the larger point sizes.
All in all, it was a great day and thanks to everyone that came out and played games at Pegasus Games.
WiscoDice will be putting on a Warhammer: Age of Sigmar tournment at Pegasus Games on August 22, 2015 starting at 10 am. This is intended to be a narrative event, fun for everyone and everyone will walk away with something from this event!
Rules pack version 1.0, including round 1 scenario, is available for this event. Hopefully we can get 8-16 peeps out for this event.
There will be a $10 entrance fee that will contribute 100% to prize support for this event. If there are enough people out, we will have door prizes on top of the top awards in the rules pack. Event will be at Pegasus Games Madison on August 22nd. Schedule included in the rules pack.

Hey all, it’s that time of year for Blood in the Sun 5, or often referred to as BITS. Can’t believe I have been coming to this tournament now for 5 years. That’s 5 great years of Warhammer, fun and friends and this year was like others. All ready I have met a bunch of first time tournament goers, hooked up with old friends, watched some cool games and seen some really cool models.
Enjoy the pictures of this year’s event, either now or in the future. These are hosted through Google Photos so the link will redirect you away from the site. If you are watching these as I take them, I will be adding and syncing pictures I take with this folder.
Well, if you didn’t know the Wisconsin Warhammer Fantasy Battles League has a regular play-offs 3 times a year. What happens is that for 3 months, players are encouraged to go to play games with other players who are registered as part of the club and then go to the website and enter the game. Using a ruleset, each game is scored a certain number of points for things like the size of the game, winning, losing, and if the army was painted. At the end of the three months the top four players who can manage to make it out to play-offs are invited to an event.
For the Winter/Spring term of 2015 we had 24 players score their games, so there was a lot of interest in league play. With the top four players then were invited to a traditional, single elimination two round event that was hosted at Pegasus Games on April 25, 2015. Our qualifying players were:
We apologize for how late this is coming out. I could go into a million excuses, but this is finally put together and coming out.
In this episode, we got together via a big Google Hangout and had various folks jump on through the night to talk about how much fun they had at Merry Mayhem 2014. Interviewed is overall winner Eric West and locals Davy Calkins and Paul Wagner. Be prepared, this one turned out much longer then expected, but was a ton of fun to listen to and record with all of these great folks.

Screw City GT is in it’s third year and this year, there be monsters! Lots of them. For a midwest event to have so many big monsters and creatures is truly awesome. Follow the Conesy via this post all weekend long for what’s going on.
Round 1 – Bill Robertson, Warriors of Chaos
Bill is famously known for Warscore, the tournament scoring application. This year, though he brought a pretty standard warriors army. I went down to his army. Simply put, he played better and I didn’t handle the crazy movement as well of the speed of my army. I did manage though to use the Carmine Dragon to kill the chaos toad dragon, but that was about it.
