Yeah, unfortunately we only had the Zombicide miniatures for this game so keeping track of more than two types is a little difficult. Also you really need every result creating zombies or they just get mowed down too easily.

Just a li'l update today of some paint I slapped around tonight. I'm going to a 200 pts LI tournament this Saturday and decided to run this list (scenarios are Fronline, Annihilation, and Quadrant Control so no specialists required):

I didn't have my Charontid, Speculo, or Vanguard Hacker ready to go so I thought I'd throw some free time at them this week to get them to a tabletop quality at least. While I pretty much have the Charontid (still needs some basing) and the Speculo ready to go, I did hit a slight hitch in that they're both pretty fugly to me so it was hard to care about the final outcome. I guess I won't feel too bad, but still I wish that CA would get a little love at least model wise.

Since an image is worth a thousand words, here ya go!

So I went to the tournament on Saturday and had a pretty solid time. I did end up playing with the Charontid list I posted even after second guessing myself and building a Cybermask abusing one (which could've performed a whole lot better). Since it ended up being two lists and all the missions were murder/area control, I also brought this Sphinx list:

I played against three great opponents (Will, Chris, and Ian) even if I didn't particularly put up three good fights.

Game one was against Will and his vanilla Nomads with a list looking something like this:

We played Frontline and I was going second playing my Charontid list. Will's turn one saw my Q-Drone go down, but not before dropping the ADHL Hellcat who botched his jump. Come my turn, I attempted to have the Charontid clear the other Hellcat out to make room for me to speed up the table and lay down some sweet Sepsitors all over those Intruders/Alguaciles, but alas I lost all of my BS 17 duels with the Hellcat and died (no crits necessary). Thankfully my Speculo was willing to pick up the slack and she murdered literally every remaining Nomad with the exception of the sniper Intruder who hid prone on a rooftop from her.

Results: 3 TP

Game two I was playing against Chris and his Hassassins which looked to be a fun and challenging game. His list was something like this:

Chris and I were playing Quadrant Control this round and I again brought my Charontid list and looked to have a better outing with him this time around...unfortunately he disagreed as did my entire army. While Chris definitely didn't roll well (besides a lucky crit on my Speculo when she revealed to shoot at the Fiday), I proceeded to roll a low of an 18 (keep in mind the lack of plural there) for anything but armor and was left chasing a tournament point or two here. A disappointing game, but that's how dice go sometimes.

Results: 0 TP

Game three was against Ian and it was time for some classic Annihilation. Since the Charontid had done nothing but die all day with literally zero accomplishments to his name, I decided to bring the Sphinx list out to play this time. Ian's list was something like this:

I went second here and hid my Sphinx on the right flank near where his Regular link was setup. Unfortunately for Ian, his entire turn was spent on the GDA who only managed to down the Slave Drone before the turn ended. My first order had an Ikadron flamethrower the two of them to try and drop the bot so my Sphinx could finish the GDA (he had his back to where the Sphinx was), but ended up just killing both and only going Unconscious1 in return. The rest of my turn saw the Sphinx kill every member of the link team along with the Bagh-mari before taking his third wound and falling down himself (I was attempting the flamethrower the last two members+the Bagh-mari and just failed the two armor rolls from combis). I stood both models up on my turn, killed the Sikh who had come in along with the Naga who (unsuccessfully) tried to hack the HVT, and we called it there.

Results: 3 TP

I managed to get fourth place even with my disastrous second game which I guess is OK, but more importantly I had a pretty great time. Overall I think the format is an interesting one, but that 200 pts is a lot less balanced overall due to how damage snowballs. Still nice to play against different army types than the standard Infinity affair—especially Hassassin who I've never seen at a tournament before. I guess next up I need to start working on my OFCC models as obviously neither of these lists is going to cut it there.

Thanks guys! I find the most important part of a job turning out is to be excited about it. I have other Haqq paint jobs I spent a lot more time on that turned out terrible because I didn't want to do them.
