Battle Report: Venethrax vs. Hexeris 15pts



This is another one where I am not one of the players, and this was shot in Tehachapi, Ca., which is 40 miles east of Bakersfield. We went to a LGS called Epic Games and got in a few games that day. While I was the odd-man-out for a game I thought it would be a good idea to whip out the camera. These opportunities are few and far between. Often times I'm far too busy being a rules official, or I'm involved in a game at a different table.

23 Pirates are FINALLY DONE!



So, they are finally done. The single largest simultaneous undertaking I have ever done since the "Sid's Box Project" nearly two years ago. The burnout was intense, but I soldiered on and got them done.



This cannon crew came out a lot better than I had originally anticipated. I hope my second one comes out as well.



And, naturally I got to represent with some Press Gangers.



These Sea Dogs are ready for the table top (minus their leader, because a friend wanted to paint him).



This is a Reaper mini that I really liked and I decided to add her to my pirate force. She's not legal for official Privateer Press gameplay, but she'll add an element of fun casual games as "Mrs. Walls."


All in all, they turned out well but upon further inspection you'll see one eff-up after another. Many of my dudes and one of the ladies don't have eyebrows, and there are a number of other d'oh moments such as botched eyes, faces and other details.

MiniWarGaming.com Site Rater

Hey Guys?

I wanted to share something with you:



So what's my angle on this? I love Warmachine. I love Hordes. And, I think those of us with Blogs, YouTube Channels, Forums, and so forth should get on this.

Add your site here:
http://www.miniwargaming.com/addsite

Site Index is Here:
http://www.miniwargaming.com/siterater/

Most of the sites listed in the Warmachine/Hordes category are general sites that have little to do with Warmachine and Hordes. I think we can change that.

MiniWargaming.Com's Site Rater

Hey Guys,

I just wanted to pass on that this site is now listed on the MiniWargaming.com site rater and my entry can be found at the following link: http://www.miniwargaming.com/siterater/lC7OKrKczAob

Lady J and The Boys



Well, a couple of weeks ago I put these figs together while watching a River Monsters marathon on Animal Planet. The figures have good detail, and they also had a lot of flash to scape away. One thing I really noticed is that they were allergic to glue. I spent forever holding then together while waiting for the superglue to finally set. In some cases I just decided to risk pinning some of them, and that did the trick. When I prime these guys I'm gonna use my new can of Formula P3 white primer and see if the stuff is as good as everyone says.

Rules Tolerating Frequent Misaplication (RTFM)



Marth a.k.a. MrFright2010 from YouTube recently posted a brilliant video dealing with misunderstood rules in the game of Warmachine/Hordes. I'm mirroring his video here to share it, and I think more people should visit and subscribe to his channel (MrFright2010). I hope to see more videos like this from him as well as his really well done battle reports.

"I apologize... for nothing!"



I put the results of the Dominar Rasheth caption contest on my YouTube channel. And, this time I just made it its own video instead of attaching it to something else.

Skorne Family Values



Here's an old video from a little over a year ago that I thought would get more views and comments, but hasn't really gotten a lot of play. It's basically a glimpse of the way my friends and I talk about the fluff behind Warmachine and Hordes.

Oh and, as of last Tuesday: SteamPoweredTV is now two years old! And, I also noticed that some of the other content creators who post Warmachine/Hordes battle reports on YouTube include "steampoweredtv" as one of their video keyword - which means that my channel is synonymous with Warmachine/Hordes.

Paint Like You Got A Pair 2: The Return of Iron Painter!

Now that the dust has settled and the winners have been determined - here is the Iron Painter video:



Sometimes I record too much footage and I have to cut things down to size in order to get a video to fit within YouTube's 10:59 time limit. And other times I don't record enough footage. This is one of those videos where the later applies.

But, for what it was worth I think this is a good video and it turned out well of enough.
