Neoscream's Life: 8th to 14th of February 2016

Welcome everybody 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. This week's opening pictures is of the Forsaker from Kingdom Death.



"Life"

On Monday I went down to Wargames Workshop MK for a couple of games of Star Wars Imperial Assault. We played the demo game and then the first mission of the campaign. It is quite a good game and I would not mind playing through a campaign to see how the campaign system works.

The re-fitters sped up the work with extra people. However on Wednesday I was still doubtful that they will get it ready on time. On the Thursday as I was waiting for the bus to work I got a phone call from the Baka, Immad, saying to not come into to work as everything not working the Drive-thru will not be opening, however we will be opening the whole store on Friday and that I have to be in work early to get things ready. When I got in on Friday I was told that the store will be opening at 11am, however due to a delay this was pushed up to 12pm. It was chaotic as we had new tills and new fizzy drinks machines which no one was trained on. C'est la vie. There are still stuff to do, but they said it will be done at a later date.

On Friday evening I, Darren H and Richard went down to Simon’s for some Kingdom Death Monster. Like I said in last week’s post, we restarted the Settlement phase at the point we draw the Plague Settlement Event card. Luckily non of the four survivors who got it died, so the plague did not carry on. With the Armoured Stranger Story Event, we managed to get a better result, however we still did retaliate against the King's Man. We did quite well. We lost one of our sword specialist that Simon was using and one of the Plague victims, but the dagger specialist that Richard was using gained King's Step. With the four Endeavours we had from the last hunt on innovation and curing the remaining three Survivors that were hit with the Plague.



"Cardfight Vanguard Valentine's Day Special Duos Tournament"

On Saturday I went down to Wargames Workshop MK for Valentine's Day Special Cardfight Vanguard Duos Tournament. I was using my rebuilt Dimension Police (Dimensional Robo) deck which you can check out on my first Build Analysis post (however I was using an X-rogue instead of an X-falcon). I teamed up with Jasper who was using an Oracle Think Tank (Tsukuyomi) deck.

On the first round we were up against Angel Feather and Gold Paladin decks. We sadly lost. I had terrible draws this game. I needed to G Assist to grade one and then I struggled to get to grade three.

On the second round we were up against Narukami and Bermuda Triangle decks. We managed to win this one.

On the third round we were up against the deadly combo of Link Joker and Aqua Force decks. We just managed to scrape a win, but they were a very good team.

Due to time we had to cut to the quarter finals which we managed to make the cut. Sweet. We were up against Shell and Matt (Liam was work). They were was Pale Moon and Dark Irregulars decks. Can anyone say "Team Asteroid". My formation seemed to be working more, however the multi attacks from Shell's Pale Moon deck really did us in as we had to burn thou a ton of card for defence. We ended up losing, however we were up against Shell who normally wins the tournaments.

I have a strong feeling that the main problems I was having were more to do with bad luck with my draws. My partner did suggest I should have more cards that help me draw more cards (like draw triggers). Maybe it is something to look into in the future if there is more problems, however in the post I have always found draw triggers are more damaging than help. Anyway I do believe I need to get some more practice with this deck that is not once a fortnight at best. However I did released afterwards that "Dimensional Robo, Dailion" is very useless in duos, as the likelihood that our damage would be at four by the second round of grade threes. Now do Dimensional Robo have grade one that help you draw cards? (There is one but is Counter Blasts to do so.)



"HeroClix"

Like normal on a Thursday night I went down to York House for some HeroClix. The scenario was "Jack The Giant Slayer". 500 points. Your team must start with a Giant, any character containing the name 'Jack' received +1 Attack and +1 Damage vs Giants.

Sorry I forgot to take photos of the teams and my memory of the games are not great. So there is no write up this week. Here is my team anyway:

Yellowjacket (006a Marvel Secrete Invasion) 100
Goliath (066 Marvel Avengers Assemble) 98
Firebird (011 Marvel Avengers Assemble) 105
Echo (010 Marvel Avengers Assemble) 96
Iron Man (012 Marvel HeroClix 10th Anniversary) 101
=810 points.

This week's scenario will be "Out of this World". 500 points. At least one figure must be from another planet.



"Painting and Converting"

During the week I managed to finish paining an Arcadia Quest figures, six Zombicide figures and one Kingdom Death figure. I also managed to undercoat two Kingdom Death Monster figures, thirteen XCOM board game figures, a Zombicide figure and two more figures for Frostgrave. 

Below is an image of my painting table at the end of last Sunday night or the start of Monday morning.
