Miniature Minute #02: The Stormsmith

In this installment of the Miniature Minute we take a look at one of my favorite non-character solos in the game of Warmachine: Cygnar's Stormsmith Stormcaller. Why is it my favorite, and what use it to a non-Warmachine player? Watch this video and find out.

Bak-Anime 2013: Video Scrapbook.

A recent adventure at our local annual Anime Convention here in Bakersfield, Ca. I mostly spend the day running Warmachine demos in the Gaming Room, but when I wasn't doing that I checked out the rest of the convention. We interviewed doll maker and fashion designer Miss Carlyfornia Love, professional cosplayer Ivy Doomkitty, and we got a demonstration of Dragon Song Forge's Samurai Swords. We also enjoyed the cosplay fashion show where local anime fans dressed up as their favorite genre characters.

At the 2011 SoCal Smackdown I caught up with Tony Kenealy of Aberrant Games, and we talked more about the game Warlands. A post-apocalyptic miniature wargame inspired by movies such as Mad Max, Warriors of the Wasteland and countless others.

For The Lulz!

Recently I played a 15pt Mangled Metal/Tooh N' Claw game where I got the silly idea of takeing Morvahna the Autumblade as my warlock. Which meant that my feat and half of my spells simply would not work:



And, well.. this went as expected:



What I didn't expect was for this to be a close game where I might have won had I not failed a charge by less than 1/16ths of an inch. 

BTW: The basehugger in the first pic says, "force evolution" on it because I was feeling too lazy to erase and re-wright the spell that was actually in effect.  Lazy feeling also factor in with the use of Warcogs as well.

Miniature Minute - Episode 1 - Epic Eiryss


A New Show For SteamPowereedTV where we take a quick look at a single model or unit for the games Warmachine and Hordes (or what ever else we feel like looking at). And, in this episode we have a look at Eiryss, The Angel of Retribution - which was the first non-Warcaster/Warlock to go epic. But, what do I think of her?

Getting Into The Game: How To Play Warmachine - PART TWO (re-upped)

The most important of the two halves of this one project, and I would say that if you going to just watch only one part it would be this one.  This is where we get hot and heavy into combat, we use our feats, and we get of a couple power attacks.


Getting Into The Game: Warmachine MKII (Re-Upped)

I've been re-encoding and touching up past installments of SteamPoweredTV so that they'd be compatible with the new BLIP.TV app, and here we have my video from 2011 on how to play Warmachine.  I should also note that a video on getting into Hordes is also in the works.

Project Journal: Building Princess Malya



After unboxing Princess Malya I could not wait to assemble her, and while I was putting this model together I decided to document the journey.
