Neoscream Life Christmas Special: 14th December to Christmas Day 2015

Merry (late) Christmas everybody. Welcome to another the Neoscream's Life post. This is my weekly post of life, what games I have been playing, what I have been painting and what I have watching and reading. The current opening pictures are of Cardfight Vanguard clans. This week is Neo Nectar from the Zoo nation.



"Blog News"

OK, this was meant to be on Christmas Day but it somehow took me longer to finish than expected. Because of this it will include the whole of Christmas Day.



"Life"

On Monday the 14th of December I went down to Wargames Workshop MK for some gaming. I ended up play some games of Cardfight Vanguard. Got some deck advice on my some of my newer decks.

I managed to finish of the Christmas shopping, wrapping and cards on Friday the 18th of December (apart from an extra item brought the following day).

On Monday the 21st of December I went down to Wargames Workshop MK with Thunderbirds, Super Munchkin, Castle Panic and Red Dragon's Inn for the last Monday night gaming of the year as next Monday is a Bank Holiday. Sadly we did not play any of them, but I do get to play several other games with Dave and others. First we played Evil Baby Orphanage, then Boss Monster and finally a long game of Munchkin Cthulhu. It was great fun and we all made a new friend.

I do find Christmas this year with work was a lot better than last year. There is more of a Christmas feel from the staff. Not saying that there was not any, just that it is a much better feeling.

On Christmas Eve I went out with a bunch of friends to celebrate, including Channy, Richard and Roxy who was back in Milton Keynes for the weekend. It was a great night, same Darren H and Jake could not make it.


"HeroClix"

On Thursday the 17th of December I went to York House like normal. The scenario was 600 points, no house rules. I decided to do a Nova Corps which were:

Nova (039 Marvel Avengers Assemble) 141 + Monster Hunter (Feat) 3 = 144
2 x Nova Corps Recruit (002 Marvel Galactic Guardians) 50 x 2 = 100
Nova Corps Centurion (015 Marvel Galactic Guardians) 100 + Ambidextrous (Feat) 14 = 114
Nova Prime (001 Marvel Galactic Guardians) 150 + Ambidextrous (Feat) 12 = 162
80 GG210 Nova Corps Denarian (210 Marvel Galactic Guardians) 80
=600 points

On the first round I was up against Michael who was using a Seto Kaiba themed team from Yu-Gi-Oh who were:

2 x Blue-Eyes White Dragon (104 Yu-Gi-Oh Series One) 150 x 2 = 300
Des Feral Imp (106  Yu-Gi-Oh Series One) 50
La Jinn the Mystical Genie of the Lamp (029 Yu-Gi-Oh Series One) 110
Boar Soldier (003  Yu-Gi-Oh Series Two) 85
The Phoenix Force (R100 Marvel Avengers vs X-Men) 57 (compete and assassinated to all characters)
=602 points

I just managed to win this game Darren S won the game. Also Darren S won his game against Adrian. On the second round I was up against Darren S. His team was a Secret Society of Super-Villains themed team who were:

Felix Faust (027 DC WizKidz event) 80
Despero (058 DC Justice League Trinity War) 235
Mirror Master (020 DC The Flash) 80
Mirror Master (020b DC The Flash) 30
Trickster (022 DC The Flash) 70
Heat Wave (041 DC The Flash) 97
=592 points

Sadly like normal against Darren S, I lost. Also Adrian won his game against his brother Michael. On the third and final round I was up against Adrian. His team was a White/Yellow Lanterns themed which was:

The Weaponer of Qward (025 DC War of Light) 211
Kyle Rayner (031b DC War of Light) 112
Mon-El (102 DC Superman and the Legion of Superheroes) 200 + Entity (061p DC War of Light) 25 = 225
Sinestro Corps Ring (S305 DC War of Light) 4
Sinestro Corps Power Battery (R105 DC War of Light) 2
Yellow Sniper Rifle (R205.14 DC War of Light) 6
Yellow  Nurse (R205.09 DC War of Light) 10
Yellow Crossbow (R205.05 DC War of Light) 10
Yellow Boxing Glove (R205.10 DC War of Light) 8
Yellow Wall (R205.04 DC War of Light) 10
=598 points

Sadly I lost this game. There was no HeroClix yesterday or next week as they are on the eves. I have no clue on what the scenario for the 7th of January 2016 will be, however York House will be open for wargamers at 7:15/7:30PM instead of 6:45/7PM due to the event happening before hand will be running late. 



"Painting and Converting"

For this post I have for you all the Zombivor version of Maddie and both versions of Laurie from Zombicide.


On the next post I should have for you all both versions of Packer from Zombicide plus the Sci-fi Pinup Twilight Knight and a Survivor. During the week last week I managed to finish paining six Kingdom Death figures and a couple of Guild Ball bits. Below is an image of my painting table at the end of last Sunday night or the start of Monday morning.
