Well this week has been a very interesting one, not only have I been bitten by the converting bug thanks to #BitsBoxChallenge but I also have some very exciting news…
Flock & Awe Podcast
As some of you may know there is going to be a new podcast on the scene HERE now this is going to be a little podcast with 3 guys just talking about all things wargaming.
We are hoping to get the first episode out soon and you have a listen 🙂
It is interesting the news of M2E has had on myself and the group I play with, as we were getting ready to diving back into Malifaux after a lengthy break. It now looks like that may be a little longer, well until the Beta comes out and then we shall see what happens from there.
It is however caused all of us to stop thinking about purchases and for myself even the newer stuff I am going to wait on. Part of me feels perhaps waiting nearly a month between announcement and release could hurt them in the short-term but have no effect long-term OR I am just being grumpy because I want to see the new rules 😦
Convergence of Cyriss
So this week we had a little view of Directrix and she is looking like the spell slinger of the CoC with that huge FOC of 8 and Field Marshal ability of Arc Node. She is also the first WM caster unit we have seen with her little Exponent Servitors which she can generate more of if need be.
Now that is a cape!!!
What really surprised me was her feat (Mathematical Perfection) which adjusts her RAT and MAT to match her FOC (so 8 or 6 if Denny is about) which is pretty nasty as that gets handed to her Vectors!
What this means is you can play the feat a number of ways for me, either early game shooting or late game axe to face. But I imagine she is going to be squishy so the vectors will be needed for the heavy lifting as is fitting for the Iron Mother (I do wonder if she will start being called Margaret 😉
Her energy blast range weapon also has me excited and will make Cygnar very jealous with its POW15 and decent AoE! Although a RNG of 11 is pretty odd rather than the more traditional 8/10/12! Maybe because it is a prime number?
Her servitors are going to be very handy for both herself and her vectors as they are all about increase the damage output with their laser beams 🙂 So making that range attack of hers equivalent to POW17!! While her released spell list is also interesting with Backlash and Domination plus a few support spells she is sounding like a lot of fun to play! Well at least against Warjacks 😉
As if that wasnt enough for this week we then get to see Axis in all his shiny glory!
All I can say to him is….
As mentioned I have my thirst back for Orks, which can only end badly for my bits box 😀
I have been needing more lootas for a while, mainly as I like the GW kits but a bit of variation and uniqueness doesn’t go amiss 😀
So thanks to @NationofLee on twitter for the bits, here are 3 of my guys. Not too over the top as you can see……
Until next week
As always any suggests/comments welcome and if you want me to cover anything let me know, as always see you hopefully next week.
