Tonight I met up with Mikkel to play my first (and his second) game of third edition Warmachine. I brought Stryker3 and he brought Karchev.
I fixed him up a bit and got down to painting. I’ve had the flue and a throat infection of some sort since Thursday but today it’s clearing up a bit. The upside was getting some work done on the Circle project in the periods between coughing up blood of shaking with the fever.
I’m back from the most EPIC tournament I’ve ever played in, and we finished dead last. We lost every round, lost all but three games, and probably achieved the worst score of any team in Danish WTC history.
A couple of years ago I argued that you could learn as much by winning as you could by losing, but I never really managed to get the local rookies to analyze their games to an extent where that was actually true.
The model I’ve chosen for this was painted entirely in a single evening, and the actual time spent painting was considerable less than two hours. I cooked dinner, watched a movie, did the laundry, and still finished with time to spare.
As some of you have seen on twitter I’ve packed up my Cryx for long term storage. Cryx was my first love, and despite a few periods of faction-infidelity I’ve stuck with her for five years.
