    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
  2. You got me. It's not nice to fool your Warlord . . .
  3. 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.
  5. 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 op
  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!
  7. 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
  8. Day 3 I did not get the Painting Contest Award Ceremony on video. I forgot to hit the 'record' button. Ugh.
  9. Here's the tournament list for my Razig. Be afraid: Troop 1 Mister Blood Seahag Familiar Bone Marine x 6 Skeletal Harpooner x 2 Treasure Map Luck Stone Troop 2 Black Knife Tom Bone Marine x 3 Skeletal Harpooner x 3 Rat Swarm x 5 Troop 3 Crows Nest Willy Bone Marine x 6 Troop 4 Rat Swarm x 6 1000 Points I thought it only fair to give you guys ample warning.
  10. Avoiding me, Dan? ~v Naw. I just got a new job and I cannot make it until late on Friday. You know I love you, man.
  11. You can make a pretty good army just with the guys you listed. You need to buy a 2.0 rulebook. Razig faction information can be downloded for free at Reaper website homepage / Games / Reaper Games.com / Helpful Downloads. They play about the same as before, if a bit less killy. Carronade went away. Murder of Crows got neutered and rats changed to rat swarms with to damage tracks vice one but almost twice as expensive. Doctrine stuff and unique equipment got refined and has some really cool options. Here's an idea of a build that uses all the minis you listed except for the Gri
  12. Had more fun playing Warlord. Gamed with Steve and Jason last night at Area 51. We were there until almost 1:00 A.M. gaming and chewing the fat. First time I played since Reapercon last May. Game 1: Steve TPKed my Reptus with his Dwarves. Firestorms got me a couple of times and crossbows caused alot of damage as well. Game 2: Jason beat Steve's Dwarves pretty handily with his Crusaders. Looked to me like Steve spread his guys out too much and they could not support each other, but what do I know. Game 3: My Reptus TPKed Jason's Crusaders but I finished with only 4 Spikeshel
  13. From what I saw, the new stuff - 2.0 and Savage North - got off to slow starts and the Reaper folks lost interest. I was one of the playtesters for 2.0 and one of the guys that worked alot on the Razig. Personally, I just got busy with life and kind of lost track of the hard core guys, but I am getting back in touch now and playing tonight. In the last five years at the ReaperCon Warlord tournament I finished 2nd twice and 3rd once (we won't mention the other two times). Did I worry about play balance? Nope. I painted armies that I thought would be fun to play and figures that were
  14. I have painted five different armies for Warlord over the last five years and I am working on a Reptus army for next Reapearcon now. Warlord is a great game. I like that you can proxy anything. Here are a couple of my past armies:
  15. Check out my YouTube video, "Why You Should Go to ReaperCon . . ." Skip ahead to 12:18 to get to the part specifically about ReaperCon.
  16. The GF9 bases mentioned by Stubbdog work great. I use them for some of my historical figures. I use the large round GF9 bases for my Nappy and ACW Generals. For Warlord, I cut my bases from 2mm thick styrene sheet from Hobbylinc (also best source for Floquil Figure Flat and Zip Kicker) and magnetic sheet from Hobby Lobby. Print out the 40% coupon from the Hobby Lobby website before you go and get a rolled 2' x 1' magnetic sheet for $6.00. I do not use the standard 25mm black plastic bases for a couple of reasons. First, since they are tapered, you have less room on top for models and/
  17. Humansquish is being modest. He's a really good player and fun to play against as well. He took my ranting to Jason about his luckstones well. Good for you, man. "Jason. You're killing me. Dude shows up with a bucket of luckstones worth +2 each. You're taking the dice out of my hands. Rolling lots of dice is the funnest part. You're taking my dice away. This is broke. What were the playtesters thinking? You're killing me here, man." Jason just smiled as he usually does when I moan and groan. HS also got me so frustrated with his shooty dude that I diverted two Gargoyles fro
  18. I stuck with my usual fare of Chicken sandwiches and Frito Pie. Had a breakfast burrito with tater tots one morning as well. Thanks Mike.
