Gaming with Neoscream: 20th September 2014

Rough drawing of Hyniks
Welcome to “Gaming with Neoscream”. This is my weekly gaming report and event write up post for miniature games, RPGs, card games and computer games.

“This Week's Events”

On Friday last week I went to Simon's with Richard and Darren H for the first game of our Silver Age Sentinels D20 Campaign. Sadly due to the fact that never Richard or Darren H were nowhere near finishing building their characters about half of our role play time was taken up waiting for them to get them close enough to use. The basic events of the game was: My character's ship crushed landed on Earth. Both Richard's and Darren's characters headed to the crash site. Richard's character arrived first and then Both his and my characters got captured by a bug like humanoid alien race. Darren's character with the help of the ships AI had to save us, and with the help of of a NPC, we all took out the bug like humanoid aliens. However as we ended the game Richard's pinned down Darren's character with telekinesis as he knew that Darren's character only freed us for a bounty on him.
It was a good night with my close friends after the problem of two nights ago (look at the pervious "Neoscream's Life" post. The next game will be ever next Friday or the 10th of October.

Menoth verses Menoth
On Monday this week I went to Wargames Workshop MK for the first round of the Warmachine/Hordes league. With the league I decided to try out my Menoth. I was up against Naill this week who was also using Menoth. It was a long and close battle, however Naill managed to win the game. Next week I will be up against Joe who is using Legion.

On Thursday I went down to York House for HeroClix. We were playing a scenario called "Clone Saga". (400 points. One figure must be a Spider-Men or a Scarlet Spider. They will be arch enemies to one and other, plus they gain Shape Change.) Sadly Adrian called off on the very last moment. So there was only me Michael and Darren S. This week I was using an Avengers themed team.
The first round was me verses Michael while Darren S had the bye. Michael was using an Avengers themed team as well. Sadly I lost the game.
The second round was Darren S verses Michael while I had the bye. Darren S was using a Spider-Men Family themed team. Darren S won this game.
On the third and final round it was me verses Darren S while Michael had the bye. Like normal Darren S won the game.
Over all Darren S won this week and I was dead last. Next week will be the first week of a three week Batman run. "Batman Beings": 300 points. One figure must be ever Ra's al Ghul or a Batman that is ever a Rookie or under 100 point. You can not use any Batman you used in any of the future Batman games.

On Saturday I went down to Wargames Workshop MK for the Warmachine/Hordes tournament. This time was a standard Steam Roller tournament. I stuck with my Convergent with this tournament, using my tier four Forge Master Syntherion force again. There was only ten of us this time. Most of the Pro players were away at the UK National Masters 2014 in Manchester.
In the first round I was up again Luke who was using a Menoth force. I shockingly managed to won this game with five Control Points. This was most like due to the player I was up against was a newest player who had not play in a long time. This placed me (shock horror) on the top table of the second round.
On the second round I was up against Glenn who was using Retribution. He won the game in the fastest time of the tournament at eighteen minutes as he could shoot though my Vectors to do boosted damage to my Warcaster. Oh well there are ups and down.
On the final round I was up against Niall for the second time this week and he was using Menoth. It was a longer fight, but he managed to win by control points as I could not get close to the objective at all.
Over all I ended up in eight place out of ten (third to last). My highest place so far. Show that I may be improving. Lewis won the tournament and Joe Mead is winning the Grand Championship (based on all of this year’s Warmachine/Hordes tournaments at MK, plus bonus points). I am at 14th place in the Grand Championship out of forty player. This is most likely due to me using fully painted armies (one of the bonuses available).  
Afterwards I have an extra game against Luke. I used a different Convergence force this time. One led by Axis, The Harmonic Enforcer. This was a long and close fight. It looked at one point that I was going to loss as I had just Axis and a Monitor Heavy Vector while he had three units and his Warcaster, High Exemplar Kreoss. However to speed thing up, as the game was taking ages, he change his Warcaster into combat with Axis at the end of his turn and failed to kill Axis. This gave Axis the opportunity to have Kreoss say “Hello” and “Goodbye” to his Hammers as with too almighty blows, Kreoss fell to Axis. Let none imperil the great work of the Geek Goddess AJ Lee. Opps! I mean the Machine Goddess Cyriss. Geek Goddess, Machine Goddess, same thing.
