    Koyote enters the Underhive

    So I've decided to take the plunge and play Necromunda. Returning to the GW fold makes me feel kinda icky, but I'll just keep telling myself that it's "Specialist Games". Based upon from what I've read on the interwebs and my own observations, the House I've chosen, Cawdor, isn't really good at any one thing, so it's a bit of an underdog gang. Nevertheless, I love the models and I'm eager to get started. Overall, the stats of Cawdor fighters are slightly worse than those of other houses, but in exchange they are less expensive. Similarly, some of their equipment is inferior, but again, this appears to be balanced out by a decrease in price. Taken together, I was initially convinced that Cawdor gangs are supposed to make up for what they lack in stats and equipment with gang size, so my first shot at a 1000 credit Cawdor list included 12 models. However, this notion got thrown out the window when I got a look at the scenarios in the Necromunda Rulebook, where many, if not most, restrict the gang size to a randomly generated number between 4 and 7 models. So I went back to the drawing board and designed a gang comprised of 10 models. The credits not spent on the gangers number 11 and 12 were instead spent on extra equipment. Leader: polearm-autogun, flail, mesh armor, & bulging biceps Champion: cawdor heavy crossbow, & headbutt Champion: long rifle, flail, auto-pistol, & bull charge Ganger: polearm-blunderbuss Ganger: polearm-blunderbuss Ganger: reclaimed autogun & axe Ganger: reclaimed autogun & axe Ganger: flail & reclaimed auto-pistol Ganger: flail & reclaimed auto-pistol Juve: stubgun, auto-pistol, & flak armor If I were to use this in campaign play, my priority post-game purchases would include smoke grenades, incendiary grenades, a cult icon, and bomb delivery rats. The cawdor polearm weapons appear to be a point of contention with the internetz chattering class, but they look cool and if used correctly, can give my gang some modest advantages -namely, the ability to deny some reaction attacks and equip models with half-price hand flamers. Equipping my leader with a polearm-autogun isn't optimal, but the model pictured below is my favorite out-of-the box pose, so that model is going to be my leader. I'll give him a different head, a flail hanging from his belt, and add a bit of bling, but that's probably about it. Since this is going to be primarily a painting project (I typically spend much more time painting than playing), I spent a lot of time looking online at how others have painted their Cawdor. I decided to shamelessly steal someone else's color scheme, and paint them yellow and black. The Imperial Fists recruit from Necromunda, so perhaps my gang's color is meant to emulate the Emperor's angels of death? WIP pics to follow...

    Update time! I now have the components to build two more copies of tile #1, and have moved on to designing a new tile layout. First, I needed to upscale one of the other storage tanks from the set. The larger tank has been scaled to 164% of the original Why 164%? I wanted it scale it to the other tank and used the integrated ladder for reference Speaking of scaling, I don't this little tank provides enough cover: This is much better! Picture for scale:

    GW price hikes

    A shekel is the standard monetary unit of modern Israel. Roughly equivalent in purpose to a dollar, though decidedly not in value. Shekels were also common currencies in various middle eastern and Mesopotamian cultures throughout history.

    The ITC adopts all beta rules immediately as a rule, I think they should be in effect here even though it doesnt effect me. Once a Beta rule is out, they are basically supposed to be in use. YMMV.

    I'm sure sure what Brian does, but sanding is one option. I give mine several coats of spray can polyurethane to fill the gaps before priming.

    Infinity at OFCC

    So I've got a bunch of Canadians and a couple guys from Las Vegas who I've talked into coming to OFCC for Infinity this year. Who else is prepping and ready for it, whatever it may be?

    Infinity at OFCC

    There is not currently an Infinity event planned for OFCC 2019. I have yet to receive a proposal from anyone. Do you want to be the esteemed Head of Gaming for an Infinity event at OFCC 2019? Send me a PM!

    I guess it would mean either one?...Since its the imperium lets go with RIGHTEOUS FURY. Week 6 vs. Armageddon Imperial Guard: Both armies were built expecting melee focused horde armies..neither was expecting shooty heavily armored and durable...this made it a very fun game. Despite killing vast swaths of guardsmen every turn more and more of them kept showing up. Honorable Mention to a nameless guardsmen HERO that managed to slay a Grey Knight Paladin Paragon in terminator armor with his bayonet. Dishonorable mention goes to the Grey Knight Apothecary who teleported in turn 2, cast a spell and peril'd for 3 damage to himself, then next turn failed to heal himself and lost his turn and then the following turn peril'd of the warp AGAIN killing himself....his name will NOT be recorded in the halls of Titan...his gene seed must have been bugged and will not be recovered. The guardsmen artillary proved to be highly effective at killing my dudes, with their high rate of fireand good AP. End result was victory for the Inquisition with the game ending on turn 5. Good game overall.

    Rate the Last Movie You Saw

    The End Of The Tour A Rolling Stone reporter interviews author David Foster Wallace over the course of several days. It's a buddy picture, character study, reflection on mental illness and a dialogue about writing fiction. Overall I think it succeeds even with it's flaws. That's sort of the point. The subject suffers from depression and the movie, to me channels some of the reasons. I'm actually inclined not to make lists of pros and cons because I think the premise is really worthy and larger than any list of minor compliments and criticisms. One thing I will say, it's probably better for people who are not familiar with the real people portrayed in the script. Fans of Wallace will likely have too critical an eye and probably be irritated by how the performance relies heavily on costume and affectation. Or maybe not... if they are really into meta analysis they might actually love that. Either way, it's an earnest and authentic movie in my opinion. I think anyone who struggles with the creative process or being social will find something that resonates here.
