Gaming with Neoscream: 28th September 2014

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 Monday this week I went to Wargames Workshop MK for the second round of the Warmachine/Hordes league. However I best post the other results from the first week. Joe won his game against Rob B and by default Barrie who his game against his brother Ian who could not make it last week due to injuries.
This week I was up against Joe who was also using Legion. It was a close battle, but he pulled off a powerful move that undid all the damage I did during the game and provided me from doing any more damage during my next turn regardless how much I tried. This lead to a won Joe, or so we thought. When we told Barrie what happened, he pointed out that Joe could not have done part of what he done. He use a Warlock ability that can only be used during the Maintenance phase, spending health for Flurry. I never knew this as I am a Warmachine player and not a Hordes one. Because of this he was disqualified, meaning on record I won, but all Control Points and Army Points remain. Wow. Well if he did not have the Flurry on the the Warlock, I have been able to win the game as he would not have been able to transfer damage to his beast.
Also Barrie who his game against Niall and Rob B won his game against Ian. I am currently at fifth place in the gaming side of league with Barrie at first place and with ten points I am at first place in the hobby side (everyone else have ZERO point).
Next week I should be against Ian and his Trolling Trolls.

On Thursday I went down to York House for HeroClix. We were playing a scenario called "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.) I decided to build a team around Ra's al Ghul than a Rookie Batman.
On the first round I was up against Adrian. He was using a Gotham City Themed team. The multiple Outwit and Perplex his team had screwed up my team. I lost this game. Darren S won his game against Michael.
On the second round I was up against Michael. He was using another Gotham City Themed team. I lost this game as well, however I did do a bit better this time round. Darren won his game against Adrian, however it was a very close game.
On the third and final round I was up against Darren S. He was using yet another Gotham City Themed team. Some how I managed to win this game. Also Adrian won his game against his brother Michael.
Next week will not be the second week of the Batman sage, that would be the following week. Next week will be "Six Pack": 600 points, must have six characters, no more, no less.

On Friday, me, Richard and Darren H want to Simon’s for the second game of Silver Age Sentinels D20. It followed directly from the last game we made it back to my character's ship after blowing up the bug like alien's ship, the Null. We realised that there was not just one ship, but a fleet of ships. By the look of things they were trying to kidnap Meta Humans, but saw my character, the former second in command of the Silicon Robotic Empire as an extra bonus. We had my ship move out to obit to a place it could hide. Most of the systems were not working any more. Weapons were down. The shields could seal the holes in the ship, but were not battle ready. And the engines were running at about 5%. We then learnt that the aliens were attacking a town. We beamed down and dealt with them. We managed to do it, however as we defeated them, a group of super heroes appeared.
