Finished: Convergence Corollary and Optifex Directive


I recently finished up my Corollary and Optifex Directive for my my new Convergence of Cyriss force, giving me a solid 15 pt list to start with.  Not much to say about them except, all in all, I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out...

This Geek's Week...


 ** Bit of a BIG week for me in the gaming the department, though it still feels like I have not done a whole lot...

- I guess Lini had it easy last week, as the "Approach to Thistletop" ended up killing her!  It started off rough, and did not improve at all!  Since I was going to be attacking a Goblin Fortress, I used only monsters with the Goblin trait in my deck, and ended having to increase to difficulty to defeat goblins by 4 due the scenario special rules. (I rolled a 4). Needless to say, I never even made it out the woods, with 3 failed combats in a row!  Bummer, I liked Lini, but I think I may give Amiri a try....

- Tried to run Amiri through the Brigandoom scenario, but she utterly failed... TWICE!  Sorry Amiri, but if you can't even handle lowly bandits, then you are not gonna work for me! I let my daughter pick my next character (with a bit of nudging) and she picked Seelah the Paladin...

- Finished painting my Corollary and Optifex Directive unit for WM/H...

- Tore apart ALL of my Star Wars LCG decks, and have built new ones.  On the darkside, I have a Navy TIE/Capital ship deck, I also have a more Sith-centric Trooper deck, and a Bounty Hunter's Guild deck.  On the lightside, I'm experimenting with a Han/Chewie/Falcon/ Weapon deck I call the "Weapon Smugglers", and I'm also running a Rebel/Renegade Squadron Vehicle deck.  I have not bought any force packs in such a long time, so I'm kind of limited on what I can use...

- Played a game of Rampage with my daughter...

-  Back to playing the Pathfinder ACG,  Seelah barely eeked it out alive of the Brigandoom scenario.  Not sure why I have been struggling so much on that one lately...

- Since I did not have a 7th ed 40k rulebook, and aside from the Iyanden book, I had not started an Eldar, I decided to pick up the new Dark Vengeance box.  I also decided to get the most out of box by playing the Red Corsairs and using all the Dark Angel stuff as traitors that have joined Huron's cause after being swayed by the Fallen Angel Psyker they were hunting.  I plan on going the original corsair route, painting all the DA in normal colors, then having all the loyalist iconography "X"ed out.  I also picked up the Chaos Codex and "The Gildar Rift" by Sarah Cawkwell for a bit of Red Corsair inspiration.

- Been working on my 40k stuff.  I painted up my Imperial Fist rhino to be a chaos one.  I've also been putting together and converting up the models from the DV box.  Say what you want about GW's corporate policies, and 40k as a game, but I must say that I have truly enjoyed putting these models together!  (which is something I haven't done in a long time)  Most of the time, I dislike the building and painting process, it is merely a means to an end, which is to get them on the table, but not so with these guys.  I'm actually having FUN building and converting!

- Played a game of the DC Deckbuilder as Nightwing, killing 6 of 8 villains and winning the game.

This Geek's Week...

This week felt like a bit of a "Pathfinder Week"...


- Finished up the last two light jacks from my Convergence Battle Box.  (which I posted earlier this week)  I've now moved on to working on my Corollary and Optifex Directive unit.

- Played a bit of the Pathfinder ACG this week,  starting off by running Lini through the "poison pill" scenario.  This time around, I managed to find and defeat the villain at each turn, and came away with a new pet snake and tiger for Lini!  I then ran her through "Black Fang's Dungeon", where she easily swatted aside the black dragon and his undead minions.  She then breezed through the attack on Sandpoint and Local Heroes, but struggled a little bit through the Trouble in Sandpoint scenario.

- I also played a game of Rampage and the L5R version of Love Letter with my 4 yr old daughter.

- Played a game of the Star Trek Deck Builder.  It was fun, but took waaaay too long imho.  The game took 3 hours to complete, and for most of it (2 hours worth) I couldn't do much of anything, fight any ships, or complete many missions as I couldn't upgrade my ship.  Really, the fun vs time ratio was off...

Completed Convergence Battle Box!



 Having only just recently decided to give Warmachine/Hordes another go, I settled on the Convergence of Cyriss as my new, main faction.  It has probably been a year or more since I actually painted anything for WM/H.  All in all, I'm pretty please with how they turned out.  More detailed pictures are below...

This Geek's Week...

Spiritseer WuhSawBe is happy cuz he just found the perfect necklace to go with his dress!


- Worked on painting up my convergence battle box.  So far, I have finished up the Cipher Warjack and Syntherion.

- Got the decals and weathering all finished on my FoW stuff. Now my army is 100% completed!

- Played a few rounds of WoT:Blitz on my phone.

- Worked a bit on my MYTH Stalkers.

- Picked up the Iyanden book for 40k.  After Warmachine, I think I'm gonna work on a 40k army next.

- Picked up a Corollary and Optifex Directive for my Convergence.

- Played a game of x-wing, using 2x Saber Squadron with push the limit, Turr, and Fel against several random named TIE pilots and a defender.  I lost, but managed to take down 2 pilots before I died.

- Played 4 games of the Star Wars LCG, winning one.

- I painted all the bases and stands for x-wing black, the idea being, not only would it look cool, but it would also help tell my ships apart from my opponent's.  I also marked the sides on all my tokens, so I can tell them apart as well...
