Gaming with Neoscream: 12th October 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 semifinals round of the Warmachine/Hordes league.
This week I was up against Rob B who was also using Cryx with some Minions. It was the first time ever of use played in a 50 points game. It was an interesting game, however he won by caster kill as I failed to do it to him. As I was adding the army listings just before posting this I release my force was under pointer. I by mistake selected the ten man unit of Delivers while I meant to and only had a six man unit. Stupid me. That mean I was four points under instead of the one I thought I was. At least I noted that before the finals.
Also Joe who his game against Barrie due to the fact that Barrie could not make it. Next week I will be up against Barrie playing for third and Joe and Rob B will be playing for first and second place.

On Thursday I went down to York House. Adrian could not make it so we decided to play Zombicide instead of HeroClix. Michael also could not make it at the very last moment. Luckily we manage to get an extra player. We played the “Foooood” mission from Prison Outbreak. Sadly we never finished. The dangers level had gotten very high and we still had the second half of the main building to open and clear.

Wargames Workshop MK has a £2 gaming fee or £4 with a pack of Magic the Gathering cards unless it is a paid tournament run by Guardians of Tyr (not including High Command). Weekday events normally start “playing” at 7PM.

For rules for Guardians of Tyr tournaments and leagues as well as information on pre booking your place in tournament. Pre booking is highly recommended so they know how many people are coming. So please go to their website which there is a link to it under my links section which are located on the right hand side of this blog.

York House has a £3 on the day gaming fee and a £5 fee for a year’s membership. However the first day is free and they only take yearly membership fee at the start of the year. The Hall officially opens at 7PM, but normally people start arrived 15 to 20 minutes early.



“Wargames Workshop MK Warmachine/Hordes League 2014 Painting Challenge Day 27 of 28”

Again I have not done a photo of the overall painting table before going to bed as most of it has zip all to do with Warmachine (and Hordes). However here is a closer look of the five figures I am focusing on at the moment.


As you can see there my Holy Zealots have arrive yesterday so I am now focusing on them and the Monolith Bearer. Here is the figure I finish yesterday.


That is another two hobby points making the grand total now forty-five so far with four (add may be a fifth) hobby points available to earn.



Until next time, Keep Rolling.
