Video About MKII early release

This is a video version of my last update. It was kind of a hasty put-together, but it gets the job done in spite of its flaws.

Warmachine MKII Rules Released Early

Hey Guys,

Well, taking a tip from the Board Game companies, Privateer Press has released the full rules for Warmachine MKII good and early in the form of a no-frills PDF. The document is about 63 pages long and I for one plan on having mine printed out at Office Depot. In addition there are also the updated rules for the MKII models and units, and the input from the field test is clear and evident (warning: the document is over 250 pages). I've seen a lot of point adjustments and a number of tweaks.

Here's the link to follow:

SteamPoweredTV Link button

I noticed a lot of blogs have their link button, so I loaded up Photoshop Elements and made this one. It's basic and I think it gets the job done. I played around with different effects, but they ended up looking tacky.

Battle Report: Darius vs. The Old Witch

This was a pretty interesting game. I put my Darius list together at the last minute, because I misplaced my 500pt ready-to-go army list. James, on the other hand, is playing with the Old Witch for the first time to see how she plays. So, this resulted in a pretty interesting game.

Retribution Test Game from August 4th

This was a proxy game from back in early August, and with Retribution cards that were published in NO QUARTER 25. Now that the stuff is out I'm hoping that my friends will start buying this stuff so that I can do a proper "Vs. Retribution" battle report.

Random Moments

I often collect "stock footage" for use in future videos that just don't seem to get used, so I decided to compile a "random moments" video made up of footage that didn't work as a single movie. Some of this very same footage my be reused in future videos, but the audio will be stripped as I'll be talking about something else.

Random Projects: A Year Later

It's amazing how many projects in this video I managed to finish over the past year, and how many things remain unfinished:

I'm thinking of doing a follow up where I showcase the finished projects as well as spotlighting the stuff that remains to be completed.

Kingdom of Cygnar Remix

When I originally uploaded this video it featured the song "Shock" by Fear Factory, which was something I thought was really fitting to Cygnar's lightning motif. About a year after this video was posted it got flagged for a copyright violation, but fortunately YouTube has an audioswap feature. So, I was able to keep the video at the expense of a really great song. If this video was something more than a slide show, such as a battle report or vblog then I would have had to delete from my original channel.

I do plan on doing another video like this in the near future. I currently have my Cygnar collection fully painted all the way up through Superiority. I'm considering a book-by-book slide show that would feature the figures in the order that they appeared in various expansion for Warmachine.

In addition, I also plan on doing this for my Circle Orboros collection, but I got to get more of that stuff painted.

Kingdom Con

Back in 2006 several of my friends went to GenCon SoCal and had a blast. I couldn't make it that year but had hoped to attend the following year. My hopes were dashed when I learned in 2007 that GenCon SoCal was no more. And the death of GenCon SoCal has left a void in its wake. So, to fill that void we now have Kingdom Con which is coming this April to Southern California. I'm personally hoping that this will be a west coast answer to temple con.

Check out the website, and its forum. This is one of two events for which I am putting money aside with the hopes of attending.


Back in the Day Beatdown

This is an "Oldie, but Goldie" from a year ago:

I'm hoping to do a follow-up with the MKII rules when Prime 2 get's released in January.
