Black Dragon Iron Fang Pikemen

Actually, this is kinda old news by now, but Privateer Press not only provides Khador players with an upgrade kit to change a unit of IFP into Black Dragon Iron Fang Pikemen, no, they also provide an official statcard for an alternate UA. In summary, the main differences are a different "mini-feat" and an ability replacing Relentless Charge.

The Khador forums are abuzz with praise, and I did join in - at least, I ordered all the additional trooper blisters necessary to max out the two IFP units I already had, and soon I'll be fielding two units of them. Well, as soon as they are painted, at least. ;)

Gladly, I've found a fellow german painter and blogger who'd be willing to put with my models. :)

Okay, that's all. Just some rambling about "new" units. Farewell!

Marth & the Machines #53b - Arides vents it!

So, apparently, somebody had to let off some steam. Here's my brothers "rant", if you will, on Cygnar-Merc crossovers, Merc restrictions in tourneys, and stuff. Enjoy!

Anima Tactics Impressions

So, there was an Anima Tactics demo day at our FLGS today. I didn't exactly participate (had to leave for a time, then came back), but I used the time to leaf through the Saga II book and to learn rules autodidactically. I wonder if that's even a word. [turns out: it is, and I've been using it correctly! But let's get BTT ASAP]

So during the day, I formed my opinion that it appears to be a visually appealing, fun, real skirmish game (i.e. you don't exeed ten models). The problem with that?

The Druzhina - Preparations

 after stumbling onto Mr. Malorians outstanding U-Tube "Podcast" called "The Orc Tactical Team", where he covers numerous aspects of Warhammer Fantasy Battle from a competitive orcish(&goblinish position), and watching through the whole thing, I was stricken with the thought: "Hey, that could work for warmachine, too. Plus, I could do it, and on top of that, it'd be fun."
