    GenCon help

    I thought I would chime in, we've been working on a new Sci-Fi Pen&Paper RPG called Chronicles of the Void and we will be running 4 events at Gen-Con this year. Our Saturday and Friday night game are sold out, but we have a handful of tickets left to our Thursday night and Friday afternoon game. Just search for "CotV" in the Keyword on the Gen-Con Event Finder if you are interested. Here is a link to our site to find out more about the game: Chronicles of the Void
  6. This is a fantastic looking sculpt!

    HBO's A Game of Thrones

    As a long time fan of the books, I honestly think the series is done as well as I could realistically hope that TV could do it. The casting is fantastic on all fronts. The production values are extremely high for TV. and The Hound's armor looks awesome... for some reason he is one of my favorite characters in the whole series.
  8. Its good to know you are still hanging in there shakhak, keep up the good work on the video game.

    Chronicle of the Void

    I wanted to announce that Chronicles of the Void has launched our official Kickstarter fundraiser project here. Doug and I have been working on the game for almost a year now and we've had the privilege to play with several of you since that time. Now we are ready to get it finished and in your hands. If you have a a few minutes to read and a few extra dollars to donate (you can pledge any amount), we would really appreciate your support. Not only that, but we have some great rewards (Rulebooks, Sound Tracks, T-Shirts and more) for those of you that can afford to give a little more, but you can find out all of that on the site. CotV Kickstarter Project Thanks!
  10. Hey guys, just wanted to remind everyone that the tournament is this Saturday, I hope to see lots of you there. New players, please dont feel intimidated at all about the word "tournament" its really a very friendly environment and the Asylum has loads of minis that a new player can borrow and use to make a full 1000 point army if you are just getting started. Its a great way to learn the game and get acquainted with other players!

    Sisters of the Blade

    I feel what you are saying about proxies for the Chain Sisters, although I like the model, they are one of my bread and butter grunts, so I will ultimately need many of them. I was not able to find an alternate sculpt that gave me a chain sister vibe, but if you do, let me know cause I would like to pick some up You bring up an interesting psychological playing tactic with Kyra and Lavarath that honestly deserves an entirely separate thread, namely: Using models that present a psychologically intimidating presence on the field (Dragons, Giants, other Giant Sized creatures) causing your opponent to over commit resources to dispatch the perceived threat of the model, even though there are very likely much better ways for him to employ his forces. This distraction can often create opportunities to deal a lethal blow to your opponents key models which can change the tide of the game. I would say that this is a sub-category of the tactics which involve baiting your opponent, as well as being related to facing players that incorrectly evaluate the relative threat level of enemy troops either through inexperience or tactical error.

    Sisters of the Blade

    Cool, I have never quite been able to settle on how to best employ Kyra and Lavarath, so I'm interested to see how she performs for you. Shes got such a hefty price tag, I really question whether she will be able to recuperate her cost in enemy kills. It seems like her most effective use is to hope you can find a sizable chunk of enemy units and get off a really big spray attack. Regarding soldier choice, I think its fair to compare the Chain Sisters with the Blade Sisters since they both serve the role of mid-cost melee support pieces with a price difference of only 2 points. As such, I have had a lot of success with the Chain Sisters since their DV is guaranteed to be one higher than the Blade Sisters (who have to rely on Deflect to reach an 11). I also generally prefer Disable to Vengeful as I feel like reducing the overall number of attacks my opponent gets to roll against me is preferable to the Chain Sisters boosting MAV when they are very likely to die on defensive (again because of the lower DV). Additionally Disable works on both offense and defense, and also benefits my allied soldiers, where as Vengeful is only a boost to the model who has it and even then only on Defensive combat when you've already taken damage. So to me, the Chain Sisters higher DV coupled with less aggregate attacks coming in on them and other allies, leads to them taking far less damage and thus staying on the table longer than their Blade Sisters analog. I can definitely see a good argument for the Duelists, I've considered swapping out a Blade Warden for one myself as the Provoke can really save lives in certain key situations. In fact... my build is 2 points shy of 1000 and if i dropped a Blade Warden in troop 1, I could put in a Duelist to help further protect Joeliyn, Kyla and Lorielle. I think I'll do that right now Good list Shakandara, I would like to hear how it plays for you.

    Sisters of the Blade

    Hey guys, I'll get us started here with the Sisterhood as they are my second army and I just completed my 1000 point list after spending the summer in an escalation league building my forces and tweaking my tactics. Sisterhood - 998 points Troop 1 Joeliyn, Leader of the Blade Armor of Mettle Kyla, Vampire Hunter Lorielle Silverrain Blade Warden x 3 Angelic Warrior x 2 Chain Sister Luck Stone Troop 2 Callindra Silverspell Magic Ranged Weapon Siellendria, Spell Sister Blade Warden x 3 Chain Sister Troop 3 Kassandra of the Blade Armor of Courage Shaedra, Paladin Chain Sister x 2 Blade Warden x 3 Troop 4 Volendria of the Blade This is played using the Mercs at Heart Doctrine which will allow you to start the game with 5 Luck Stones, each of which has a value of +2 to any roll thanks to Joeliyn. The army is built with three main tactics in mind: 1) Luck Stone Regeneration: The three leaders, and their supporting Elites and soldiers, were chosen with particular attention to ensuing that they get the most possible use out of the Lead By Example faction doctrine that generates a Luck Stone each time a leader slays an enemy model. Joeliyn is a very potent hybrid threat in both melee, and with her deep magic set. She is a key piece for the army as her WL ability boosts all Luck Stones to +2 and her damage potential finds her earning several more throughout the course of a battle, which is why she is wearing the Armor of Mettle to increase her odds of survival. Callindra Silverspell with the Magic Ranged Weapon should be an extremely deadly archer, coupled with Siellendria, Spell Sister who can cast Barrage on her gives Callindra the potential to really rack up the kill count. Kassandra of the Blade is one of the strongest melee models in this faction, and giving her the Armor of Courage significantly increases her chances of successfully defeating her targets. 2) Ranged Domination: There is a very strong theme of ranged domination in this army by choosing 4 unique ranged attackers that all are offensively explosive. In troop 1, we have Kyla, Vampire Hunter with her high RAV Piercing/Sharpshooting crossbow and Lorielle Silverrain with her 2@4 with Weaponmaster/Indrect Shot bow. Both of these can work independently to surgically remove high value targets at long range, regardless of Stealth, Deflect, or LOS or they can gain the benefit of Barrage from Joeliyn and deal AE damage to grouped units. In troop 2, Callindra provides a very similar threat to Lorielle except that she can Rapid Shot, which makes her Barrage potential (thanks to Siellendria, Spell Sister) extremely deadly to swarm armies. Finally Volendria of the Blade is a very fast moving, long range archer who is best kept in reserve until your enemies high value Tough models fall to their last damage track, allowing her to move into range and use Sniper to destroy the model and prevent it from Toughing up. 3) Diverse Model Composition to Handle a Wide Variety of Threats: This army has a wide variety of tactics it can employ on the fly depending on the opposing army composition or the scenario which they are playing on. This army has high ranged damage, respectable magic power, deep strike potential, flying support, is "bad dice proof" thanks to the large number of Luck Stones, and has respectable melee interference models. This all adds up to a very enjoyable play experience on the table that can be played in several different ways and still come out on top.
  14. Hey everyone, shortly after getting this month's event organized I was informed by the owners of The Gamers Realm that the store will be closing August 14th and seeking a new location. You can find the full story here: The Gamers Realm This is a sad turn of events for DFW war-gaming players as this store was truly unique in its support of the genre and the quality of its staff and facilities. As a result, we are still going to have the Warlord Tournament this month, same date and time, however we will be moving the location to the Reaper Asylum. So please come out, pickup a Savage North book, and enjoy some scenarios!
  15. The next Warlord Tournament is at The Reaper Asylum Saturday August 21st starting at 1pm. The format of the event is the same as our previous tournaments. $5 entry fee, 1000 point lists. All entry fees go towards prizes for the top 3 placing players. The Savage North expansion was just released in July, so pickup your copy of the book and come play one of the 8 brand new Warlord armies! Scenarios for this tournament can be found below: August Scenarios
