Hobby Update 10/7/2020

I had a pretty interesting week of hobby and wasn’t expecting to have finished many models. I was quite impressed with the amount of hobby that I was able to actually finished. Starting with Marvel: Crisis Protocol I spent most of my time painting Captain Marvel and creating a series of blog articles detailing that process. I didn’t really realize how time consuming that would be. Once she was complete, I spent time painting up Black Panther as well. He was quick to paint up, but more importantly I am very pleased with how he turned out.

I have been painting mostly super heroes lately and I wanted to work on something different. I painted up Sabine Wren for Star Wars: Legion. This model is from the Rebels animated series and it took me some time to work up all of the different, bright primary colors. The end result feels like it really works. Honestly, it might be one of my better painted models for Legion.

Final model I finished Boromir for the Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game. This model is the older metal version of Boromir that they originally released as part of the Fellowship of the Ring releases probably back in 2001 or 2002. I painted the rest of the Fellowship a few years ago and they are displayed on one of my miniature display shelves. For some reason I had never gotten to Boromir. Now he can join them in his proper place.

Gameholecon 2018 Star Wars Legion Tournament

Here are the promised rules for the 2018 Gameholecon Star Wars Legion event happening on Sunday. Please ensure you are familiar with the Fantasy Flight Rules Pack for tournaments. This is available in the Tournaments section of the Legion page on the Fantasy Flight Games website.

Tournament Tier: Relaxed
Stucture: Basic (No Cut)
Number of Players: 16
Points: 800
Rounds: 6 or less players, 2 rounds. More then 6 players there will be 3 rounds
Round Length: Rounds will be 120 minutes long with a 10 minute pre-game set up time

Lists: Players must have a copy of their list available for the Organizer, preferably printed using Tabletop Admiral. If a player does not have a printed copy of their list, then they will be provided a form at registration and required to provide a detailed list of units and purchased upgrade cards. A player found playing with options not on the list submitted to the Organizer will be disqualified from the event.

Schedule (rough):
8-8:30 AM: Registration
8:30 AM to 10:40 AM: Round 1
10:50 AM to 1 PM: Round 2
1 PM to 1:30 PM: Lunch
1:30 PM to 3:40 PM: Round 3
3:40 to 4 pm: Final Results and Awards

Ringer: As this is a relaxed format event, if there is an odd number of players the Organizer, who is also filling in as a leader will play as the ringer. The ringer will not be eligible for any prize support or be considered for final event scoring, however your result against the ringer will be your result. Thus a loss against the ringer is considered a loss in the event. The idea of the ringer is to ensure everyone gets to play as many games of Legion and have fun through the day.

Overall results will be posted to the WiscoDice website.

Prize Support: TBD
