WWHFB Term 1 Play-offs

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:

Episode 59: Better Merry than Never

Episode 59

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 2014

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.

Gen Con 2014 Photos and Initial Report

Hey all, this is the Conesy reporting in from Gen Con 2014 in Indianapolis. I will tell ya, it’s been a very busy and crazy year and I wish I would have had more time to take pictures and share with you folks so far. I have been booked in more events than I have ever been in the past, and that means running from event to event to make it on time for everything that we want to do.

Our group rolled in about 1:30 pm on Friday, the 15th of August. After getting through checking in at the hotel and picking up our passes at will call it was a very quick run through the vendor hall. After that, I took a sculpting class that was just amazing and I learned so much that it’s really going to help impact my modeling. From their, our group headed out for the Brugge. Tasty food and beverages were consumed in our yearly trip to this wonderful restaurant.

Saturday, we did True Dungeon. It was the Zephyr combat experience. Sorry, no pics of it. That isn’t allowed, but needless to say, we survived and managed not to be taken down. It was my first experience with this and while I had a blast, if you are a first timer then I strongly recommend that your not stuck with a healing class like a cleric. We are lined up for another session tonight and I aim to make up for the first experience with a different class.

Once True Dungeon was done, I raced over to the Malifaux HQ for a scheduled demo of the game. Wow, I have to say the game was a blast. I spent a little over an hour, running through the demo and learning the game. While the guy running the demo I am very sure let me smash his faction, I was really excited to play the game and started to see how the combos set up and work. I came away from this with the need to play this game. I all ready have some old metal Malifaux Neverborne at home, but I picked up a pile more figures. Now, just got to find time and get some of those Madison guys playing this game.

Here are the pictures from this weekend’s fun. If you have a chance let me know your here and share your experience with the us if you have the chance.

Gen Con 2014 Preview

So yeah, this Gen Con thing is happening again in about a week. Am I pretty excited, oh heck yeah. So this is going to be Conesy’s preview to Gen Con 2014. Unlike other previews though, where people talk about what the new games that are coming out, or what the top costumes are or anything like that, I am going to approach this from the top things that I am excited to check out this year.
