Tonight I'm going to take a brief respite from posting about Warhammer or Warhammer 40k and go over one of the projects I'm working on for a different system. Diversity can be fun, right? So tonight I'm going to discuss Malifaux and walk through my Rasputina crew, explain my typical 35 soulstone crew, and show off the models I'm currently working on or have completed at this stage.

Today I'm going to give a brief introduction to a few lists I'm working on. In my previous list I mentioned that I'm working on a Warriors of Chaos army next. So first we'll cover what will be appearing in that list. Next, I've been fiddling around with High Elves since I have a spare few from past box sets and army start-ups. With the recent Adepticon trip one of the more common High Elf builds present was the Light Council army. Upon quick inspection, the Light Council actually GREW in power in the new book (unless you relied on Teclis previously). So I'm working on an army of Avelorn as I've always enjoyed the Everqueen fluff and still have my old model(s) to use as well.
All lists presented are at 2500 points.

Lately I've been considering all the Warhammer Fantasy armies that I would really like to collect. I think I've finally settled on what I plan to work on next in terms of Warhammer Fantasy. Overall though, it's a tough choice to pick up a new army. This goes doubly so when GW has created so many cool and characterful armies. So let's so what armies were finalists and then what I finally decided to go with.

The most disappointing part of the Adepticon Fantasy tournament this year for me lay in my relatively low appearance score. I received an 18 out of 25 and I really feel I can do better. Looking over the scoring section I'm pretty certain I lacked in 2-3 areas; Conversions, Freehand, and Display. Now I'm working on my army for next year and trying hard to come up with some good ways to improve my scores. So let's start with Conversions this week. Particularly, lets go over the largest conversion I've ever attempted.

In my last post I gave a brief summary of my Adepticon Fantasy Championship Tournament experience. I gave a short summary of each game, my opponents, the scenario, and the atmosphere. Today I'd like to go into more detail on the games, the scenarios, and how my army list performed in an effort to evaluate my current list and prepare for next year's tournament. That's right, I'm going back next year provided my work or home life doesn't interfere. I didn't paint 220ish models for nothing afterall!

I'm back from Adepticon and sitting back and relaxing after a long weekend packed of Warhammer Fantasy. Overall the experience was enjoyable as usual and it was nice to see some old friends that I haven't seen in ages. The vendor hall was packed, the halls smelled of stale air, gamer, and hotel air freshner, and the weather was... terrible. At least for the first couple days. Anyway, keep reading for a quick synopsis of how I performed at the Warhammer Championships! You'll note a severe lack of pictures and you have my apologies. Unfortunately I left my camera at home! So while I captured a few pictures, most of those were from Saturday night or Sunday afternoon and taken with my phone (which was dead most of Friday and Saturday).

Just a quick post here. I'm finally departing for Adepticon in about 5 minutes. When I arrive in Chicago and get checked in I'll start setting up my army for tomorrow. I'll try and take some pictures of the completed display once I have everything arranged. Otherwise, I hope to provide some nice coverage while I'm up there on ongoing events as well as the Fantasy Championships!
Wish me luck and if you are at Adepticon today I'll be the average height guy with a pony tail and an orange fleece pullover. Come up and say, "Hi!"
