Warmaster Tomb Kings Vs Dark Elves 2000pts


            Kal hosted again. The central PA group is trying to establish at the least a month gaming event. Last month we played Epic. This month it was Warmaster for me. Kal and Shawn played Epic later. I was strapped for time and could only get in one game.

            Tomb Kings took the win. So how Kal's general got bounced into a locked combat with only single stands left. The dice revolted, the general died, and that was that in turn 5.

AdeptiCon 2022 Dates

        Maybe we will actual get an AdeptiCon in 2022. I did not agree with the excuses for canceling 2021. Other Cons have been held. Others are going ahead. If IL would not allow for a capacity needed to go ahead, another state should have been selected. Most of us travel from around the country any ways.


March 23 to 27th 2022

Marauder Industries "GrimDark tower"

        Grim Dark stuff printed by Marauder Industries. Marauder is a veteran owned US based custom print service. They offer laser burnt MDF stuff too. Marauder made the "Epic Tool" in MDF for us.

                Here I have Marauder on the left and an eBay print service. Marauder's is in filament and the other in resin. Marauder was less than half the cost. Even being printed with filament, Marauder's quality and resolution is better than the resin print. That is normally not the case. I am extremely impressed with Marauder's prints.

Regimental Fire and Fury "Union Cavalry"


        The horse have been done for months. The riders were completed two weeks ago. I had no time to mount them or lay the final seal down. This is a total of two Old Glory packs, 15 stands.

Net EA Tau Viorla Vs Lyanden 3000pts

        I have not played Epic in 6 months. Or longer! It has been so long that I thought I was getting myself lost going to Kal's house. Did I miss the turn. Its not this far. This does not look like the way.

        It has been so long, I was worried about remembering how to play. when looking at what to bring. World Eaters and Nids became massively complicated. I couldn't make a list for the Fists. I didn't want to take an old tourney list, this was a dice throwing event. Not a smash mouth tourney work up. 

        So I pulled the Tau out of retirement. I was thinking with a shoty memory I need an army that didn't send me to the QRF for every roll. No one wants to be dragged along another failure to perpare one's self.         With the blue fish, I dusted off the broken shelved Tau big suits. I played the Riptides and friends at AdeptiCon one year. They smashed everyone to pieces. They were extra broken.

2018 AdeptiCon list
(extra 50pts are the test reduction of the Manta's cost)

        After that event the suits never came out again. Until this Sunday. I sent Kal my list ahead of time. Kal took out his point ears. He was loaded for bear. All RA with meltas.

Kal List;

My List
        I said he was loaded for bear. The big suits are tougher than knights. They did not care. At all! It took 4 activations to break the Y'VaHra. That was the worst result for the suits. I took him 5 - 0. They are too tough. They should save on a 4-4 or a 3-6Inv. The 4-4-6 and 3-3-6 have sent them back to the dusty shelf again.

        It wasn't that my dice were hot. I still failed 9 activation in the 3 turns. One group of Fire Warriors failed every time. I failed 4 activation in turn 3 in a row! Cross fire, marker lights, and 2 hits 1 kill out of 9 dice?

enjoy the pictures

Warmaster Lizardmen part 1


         No Cold Wars.Yet still the Lizardmen project was scheduled to be completed for Cold Wars. It has started. There was not too much time available on the weekend. I did get soem units cleaned up and on sticks. 

        If I can get them primed up next weekend. I will start painting the army until completion. They will take priority. Once finished, it will be back to the ACW.

Cromarty Forge "Lizardmen"

         Rough week! Grim Dark and then Lizardmen. I went all in at 60 pounds. Egypt and desert buildings. How can I refuse? Better question is when do I expect to print them? End of this year or next.


        All the black plastic tray that hold my minis come from Gemsondisplay.com. I am out of trays. The ACW project has been quickly filling tray after tray. Especially with the 53 some odd feet in Snake Rail Fence. 
        Sadly they are currently out of 2" trays. I was able to get 10 1.5" trays on order.

Marauder Industries "Grim Dark Train"


     I asked about the train. Bang it was up next day. Of course I ordered it and the wall door for the train. And another 70 in terrain.
