Neoscream's Life: 8th to 14th June 2015

Happy Anniversary to
AJ Lee and CM Punk
Welcome to the new Neoscream's Life post. This is a weekly post of what games I have been playing and what I have watch. Due to no team pictures of the last two season six teams at the moment there is no DreadBall team picture this week and as it last moment I have not planned on what to do next But here is a opening picture to celebrate the one year anniversary of AJ Leeand CM Punk. 

“Wargames Workshop MK Monday”

On Monday I popped down to Wargames Workshop MK for a game of Arcadia Quest with Bob, Adrian and Michael. We played the “The Rookery” mission. I won it with joint Reward and joint Most Coins. Michael was the other with the Most Coins and Adrian won Least Deaths and also joint Reward. I plan on seeing if I can continual it now week.


On Thursday I went down to York House for HeroClix. We decided to do a sealed event using my break of Marvel Avengers Assemble, however we decided to do different teams each round.
The first was 300 points and I was up against Adrian. My team was an Avengers team of:

Hawkeye (002) 85
Echo (010) 96
D-Man (024) 84
=265 points

Adrian’s team was a Mystical team who were:

Hellcat (012) 73
The Hood (057) 220
=293 points

Sadly I lost this game. The second round was 400 points and I was up against Michael. My team was:

Ex Nihilo (056) 190
Starbrand (041B) 150
Turbo (009) 50
=390 points

Michael's team was:

Smasher (027) 147
Nova (039) 141
Firebird (011) 105
=393 points.

I managed to wreck his Hypersonic cheese with my Comic cheese to win the game. The third round was 500 points and my opponent this time was Darren S. I basically stuck with the same team, but added one more figure as a front line attacker.

Ex Nihilo (056) 190
Starbrand (014B) 150
Turbo (009) 50
Thunderstrike (021) 98
=488 points

Darren's team was (if I remembered):

Echo (010) 96
Firebird (011) 105
Juston Seyfert (020) 40
Goliath (066) 98
Aleph (003) 140
=479 points

Like normal Darren beat me.

This Thursday we should be (unless things change) the “Rise of the Machines” scenario. "Rise of the Machines" is 500 points, a minimum of 25% of the team must contain the Robot keyword. Robot must be the most expensive member of your team. The 'Robot' Keyword is considered a named theme team. Robots below 74 points have a +1 to all stats with the exception of damage. No figures over 250 points.

“Cardfight Vanguard"

I had been collecting a Dimension Police deck for a while now for Cardfight Vanguard and I have been watching the English dubbed version of the anime, but I had never had a game. Keaton from Wargames Workshop MK talked me into getting the time off work to enter one of the store’s tournaments. I manage to get last Saturday off to enter one. However I was warned on Monday that they are practicing for the UK Team League 2015 this coming Saturday. I thought to myself that I was going to get totally creamed at the tournament. There was a massive turn out for them, twenty players. I won my first game which was a major shocker for me. I lost the second and then shockingly won the third. WOW! I was shocked. The people running the tournament, Shell Liam, noticed that I had no G-Units and kindly gave me three copies of “Super Cosmic Hero, X-rogue” as they have a ton of them. WOW thanks! I lost the fourth game but thanks to the G-Units I won the fifth game. I somehow managed to just scrape into the top eight play offs. I managed to win the quarter finals game, but I got knocked out by Shell in the semis. It went from a scary day to a fantastic one. I over the moon with the result and do plan on attending more tournaments in the future, if I can got the time off work and I am currently looking at upgrading my deck and maybe build a second deck to have a second.

“Painting and Converting”

Due to planning XCOM and extra hours at work I have not done much painting, it fact I have only finished one figure, my Dread King from Arcadia Quest  for the painting contest at Wargames Workshop MK. I will be go into detail about contest in a moment. Because of the lack on painting I decided to pause the “Painting and Converting” sections for a week or two to let me build up a new backlog. Too many zombies to paint at the moment.

OK here is the details of the Wargames Workshop MK Painting Contest. Figures must be a Monster or a Machines and be on a 50mm/60mm, however odd shape and slightly bigger based, but only if the Carl or Keaton allows it. You can enter you figures now. Closing date is the 19th of July.
