  2. Thanks Ordo Fanaticus!

    Hey Everyone,

    I have received such amazing support from the Ordo Fanticus community regarding our Tabletop Club that we started at The Dalles Public Library.  This club is designed to offer access to tabletop gaming to youth in the community and to use a mentoring process to help teach our area youth about the hobby of tabletop gaming and miniature painting.  

    Prior to me telling Ordo about the project, we had had two interest meetings where we talked about how to paint and worked a little bit on terrain.  

    We had our first game day for our Shadow Wars campaign this last Sunday and we had over 19 people show up to battle for water control and gang supremacy on Logan's World!  We had a few youth bring miniatures donated to them by Ordo or local community members and a few other youth come to flirt with the idea of playing.

    On top of it all, we also received a few amazing donations from Ordo Members, one in the form of a ton of unbuilt models from Purajh and another in the form of a donation to paint our Primaris marines to be Sons of Medusa by member Scarydog (You can see his WIP shot in this blog update).

    We are so excited for all of this support and for the interest we are getting from our local community.  

    Thanks everyone for reading, and stay tuned for more updates.

    The idea is that I will play a game of Steve Jackson's OGRE against whoever I can find (typically some poor soul who is taking pity on me). I will play the OGRE and the opponent will come up with a name of their fictional country that will try to stop me from crushing their base. Then I write an epic batrep about what happened. I couldn't get anyone to buy into my vision of making this a forum topic(I know, its a generally crappy idea) so I am relegated to pouring my guts out here. You have been warned.

     

    Don't say I didn't warn you.

    • OGRE vs The Occult Brethren of IX. The Occult Brethren of IX, an empire founded on jazzy haircuts, sharp wit, and the prolific use of tank tops, steeled themselves in preparation for the oncoming assault. The Mark III OGRE, Bristling guns, grinding treads, and stunning good looks, powered forward in unwavering determination. The OGRE's hellbore canon delivered its payload of destruction several times before being silenced by the enemy's constant bombardment of mixed fire and foul language. In a heroic display of conservativism, the OGRE spared the opposing infantrymen the grim destruction of their bodies by it's masterful weaponry and instead played them the lullaby of eternal slumber by traversing across entire platoons with its massive tread units. When the smoke cleared that day, their armor obliterated, their command post destroyed, one lone infantry unit managed to escape to tell the tale woe. And on that day, the Occult Brethren of IX became the Occult Brethren of one.

    • OGRE vs The People's Republic of Altdorf. The People's Republic of Altdorf thought they could stop the OGRE. They thought that swarming it with their tanks and G.E.V.’s would stop it. They thought that destroying its hellbore canon and long range missiles would stop it. They thought their superior numbers and well practiced tactics would stop it. They were wrong.

    • Batrep #3 incoming... currently no others oppose the OGRE but if you are planning to attend Game Night at WOW on a Tuesday and want to take a shot at it while you're there, send me a PM and I'll bring it along. Games take about a half hour.

    So after OFCC this year it was time to pack up the armies for the duration of relocation to Portland. I left a few things out to paint or finish painting but the time has been squandered looking for houses, selling houses, packing, entertaining the young bucks and generally being impatiant.

     

    Move date has been set for middle of January but with the delays so far I am trying not to be too optimistic.

     

    Plenty of gaming room and a hobby room in the new place and a bar to service the gaming space...I just need to do a tad remodeling to make it awesome.

    So many plans...

     

    I am a little bit pleased about the delay in the OFCC until later in the year so that I might make a stab at the WoC army this year but with the move I am not sure.

     

    Did I mention that I hate waiting...
