    1. Painting Reaper and a variety of historical miniatures. Homecasting and collecting toy soldiers. Riding my motorcycle preferably with the wife as a backrest. Building model ships (scratch and kit). Wargaming - My favorite games being Warlord; 15mm Fire & Fury (American Civil War); 25mm The Sword and the Flame (19th Century Colonial); 15mm Napoleon's Battles; and 25mm Dressed to Kill (Horse & Musket Era). Reading military history of just about any kind.

    Thanks

    My wife and I go on vacation to the Gulf Coast every year for the 4th of July. But the real vacation for me for the past six years has been ReaperCon. Sometimes I paint. Sometimes I game. Sometimes I just sit and relax. Bryan, so many folks tell you how much they appreciate what you Reaperpeeps do and how much fun they had. My way of saying thanks was, on my way out the door, to tell you 'bring it in here' and give you a big bear hug. The weekend was perfect as usual. And I second the thought about my fellow Reapergoers. I left my digital camera and video camera and all my other stuff on the table to go home and walk my dogs at lunch and my bundle was never even moved over out of the way. I lost my metal trade slip twice. Once the girls made me a new one without a question and the second time I found it on the table, unmolested, right where I had left it, with over 200 oz. of credit. Finally, and this might seem trivial, but more than once I sat down beside Matt or Ed or Dave at a table where they were having serious/semi-serious business discussions and they did not miss a beat or even look over to see who was horning in. To me, that is very unusual and very classy. You guys deserve all the success you are having and more. See you next April, Warlord Dan

    You got me. It's not nice to fool your Warlord . . .

    ReaperCon 2013 Warlord Tournament

    Thanks guys. Vince, you have no one to blame but yourself for the position of feudal underling that you now find yourself in for the next year. I begged you to play. Did everything but wrap myself around your leg . . . Everyone knows that I am permanently scarred by what happened in 2011, but thanks for the reminder. No matter. Fact is, I am now your Warlord. Signed, Asterisk Dan
  4. Aw, c'mon Heisler, you did a great job as usual . . . and none of us are getting any prettier.

    ReaperCon 2013 Warlord Tournament

    Jason, Give your Warlord some credit or I will have you flogged. The restricted terrain vs. the BSG prevented me from spreading out to avoid close combat with monsters and those Blood Net spells. 90% of my casualties were from the Worm and the Lesser Golem that I was too hemmed in by terrain to avoid or even more by magic for the same reason. Plus the Lesser Golem and Warlord dude both got up tough twice. The BSGs also had many one-track guys that somewhat lessened the impact of my two-point slow fire hits. Not to mention that in the first game I chose the wrong doctrine and that my opponent was a very skilled player. Also remember that the Razig I used repeatedly crushed all comers under all kinds of conditions in the two months leading up to the convention. That combo of the swarms of rats and the Seahag with Hold, Lighting and Domination can really slow down and break up attacks and leave the enemy vulnerable to the 18" 2-point damage hits of my Slow Fire shooters. Enemies that manage to close still have to deal with the First Strike of my bayonets and swarms of counterattacking rats. Against the Elves, I slowed the charge of Darren's massed Centaurs with my Rat Swarms, stopped them with bayonets, and killed them with a volley or two. Darren's most effective tactic was using the mirror spell to double his archers. Almost all of my losses vs. the Elves were from long-range missle fire that I was initially unable to respond to until the threat from his melee units was resolved. Against the Dwarves, even though my shooting die rolls were initially poor (one troop with Crow's Nest Willy and six Bone Marines was 0 for 14 shooting the first two turns), my opponent had only one shooter and no magic, so I was able to advance to meet him and just shoot him down. There was all kinds of luck and there are all kinds of excuses. In the end, the majority of the damage done to my shooty army was by a magic or other shooty guys, not by melee. Also, I avoided high cost guys in favor of cheaper guys working as a team. The most expensive guy on my list was the Seahag at 74 points. So what is my conclusion? I don't know. In the end the results still come down to getting the right match-ups and scenarios. And a bit of luck. OK, alot of luck. Darren taught me the game and Jason has been an inspiration to me to keep playing and investing in new armies through the dark days of near extinction. I hope that you guys who missed the tournament really do make an effort to play next year. Nay, as your Warlord, I demand that you arrive at ReaperCon 2014 ready for battle. Warlord is such a fun game that I would hate to see it die. Your Warlord has Spoken, Dan the Mighty
  6. I made this video mainly for the folks who were unable to attend this year. I'm not the greatest videographer in the world, so please excuse my spotty camera work. Hope you enjoy!

    ReaperCon 2013 Warlord Tournament

    Yea, sure, I finally won the Warlord Tournament on my 6th try and I am the Warlord before whom all my minions must bow. But as I told Vince, there will always be an asterisk by my name for 2013 in the Warlord Book of Victories because he did not participate this year. For anyone who is interested, here are my scores: Game 1 vs. Bloodstone Gnomes W 11 - 9 Game 2 vs. Elves W 14 - 6 Game 3 vs. Dwarves W 17 - 3 The spoils of my victory was a $75 gift certificate with which I purchased an Army Painter Precision Plastic Cutter; an Army Painter Miniature and Model Drill; ReaperCon 2013 Sophies x 2; and a Munchkin Cthulhu game. Thanks to everyone for a great time, especially Jason. See you guys next year.
  8. Day 4 The auction is on a separate video, which will follow this one shortly.
  9. Day 3 I did not get the Painting Contest Award Ceremony on video. I forgot to hit the 'record' button. Ugh.
