    Just wanted to let everyone in the Sun City know that there is a Mirror Mirror event happening. The event is casual so if your new or play in a home group check it out. https://www.facebook.com/events/791958674184351/

    Also there is a food machine event happening in Alamogordo and you can find more information at the link below. Its a long drive up there but we can still organize a car pool and make a day of it.

    Just a reminder, i am going to be at Sun City Games in El Paso Texas between 6-8 tomorrow for Malifaux and WM/Hordes. If you have an army an want to game that is fine. If you have a partial army for 25-35 points or don't have any army and just want to play and are interested PM either what faction you want to play or models you are interested at filling in for (Minions, Menoth, Khador, Retribution, Trollbloods, Circle, Cryx, Skorne)

    If you usually play through a home group and you are looking to connect to other players I usually post on the PP, Dakka, and Inhospitable Ground. There are also some additional groups for the area including the Inhospitable Ground page for a more specific Warmahordes local group.

    Just a reminder I will be at Sun City games today with two starter armies for Warmachine/Hordes. Even if you have "played before" or read the rules, the game is very intricate and the starters are really the best launching point for play. I will be board gaming with my son, so it would be best if you brought a friend and I could introduce you to the game and monitor the rules and such. But if you can't that is fine as well since the games will be small.

    Everything is going great, we built a very solid meta out there. Most of the core group was stationed elsewhere but there are still many gamers in the area. Most are house groups though so I am reposted and organizing games like crazy just to draw some of the house gamers into the greater gaming community. It kind of reminds me of when we started building the scene years ago, but without the benefit of people actually playing the game and the store carrying product. I can't wait to build the community up. I don't know if it's the El Paso affect or the lithium in the water but we build a very strange meta out in these Inhospitable Grounds. Honestly the meta and the personalities we drew to the game made the scene one of the most enjoyable community gaming experiences of my life.

    Tonight me and my son will be at the shop for board game night between 6-8. I will bring demo armies, so if you are interested I can do a small game (11pts), and if you and a friend wish to play together, I have demo armies to accommodate that and I can moderate the game.


    I will also be at Sun City Games this Sunday between 2-4 for demos as well. Bring yourself or bring a friend and I can either do dojo games with you (11 pts - 25 based on experience with the game) or moderate demo games between yourself and a friend.

    I will be at Sun City games this Saturday between 12-2. I will bring 35 points of Khador to play and two demo forces for new players. If you need help playing, feel free to bring a friend if you both want to play the demo sets and have me moderate. There were some important erratas made, most of them clarifications (you have to use a weapon system with an arc to sweep with colossals, tremor the spell got renamed to avoid its confusion with tremor the *attack)but as with eHaley there were some balancing issues addressed as well. If you want the short of if this is a good resource to listen to http://www.chain-attack.com/2016/01/...rollpocalypse/

    On top of demo games on Thursdays at Sun City games some of the veteran gamers are coming out to do scenario games. If you want to watch, play, or build your strategic rigor while playing scenarios this is a good time to come out. These events begin at 5 pm.

    I will be at the Sun City games today to do demos and open play between 12-5. We can also do some casual discussion on meeting times and preparations for the upcoming league. I also will talk to the Star Wars EO about their tournament plans as well. Can't wait to see you all there.

    here is a post from our Inhospitable Grounds FB site in regards to next month's league

    Okay so wrote down the armies for next month's league and this is what we are looking at:
    Luis-Khador
    Patrick - Khador
    Kitty - Legion
    Jason - Khador
    Rachel - Cryx
    Jeremy - Circle
    Marco - Minions
    Nick - Menoth
    Stephen (or Stefon for those who love him) - Skorne
    Richard - Minions
    If you are missing from the list just put your name in the comments below and state whether you will play Thursday, Saturday, or both. On Thursday some games will be played on base with Jeremy tracking scores, and I will track scores for those who cannot make it on base by hosting at Sun City. IF your name is already on the list you can make alterations

    I will be at Sun City games tomorrow at 12 for people who wish to get their games in for week 2 of the league. Jeremy reported some really great games this past Thursday and Jeremy II got 5 painting points for this week! Keep painting, keep playing, and keep making new friendships and I will see you all tomorrow! Even haven't done so yet, like the Inhospitable Grounds site on FB. I post weekly updates on the league through a Google Sheets link.

    If you are not following the local group on the Inhospitable Grounds FB site, you really should. We have been running a 6 week Company of Iron League and this Saturday is a Steamroller, below is the details:

    "Warmachine/ Hordes Steamroller will be on April 16th noon at Sun City Games. It will be 35 point 2 list format using the SR 2015 rules. We are renting space for the tables so the buy is 8 dollars which also goes to prize support."

We have some tournaments lined up before the next league so now is a good time to get in some practice games or if you want to sit down and kick back we can run some board games.

    Sorry I couldn't make the event yesterday, I came down with a massive headache but I will be at MGS today between 2-5 for demos and Sun City Games between 12-3 for demos on Warmachine and Dark Age. Right now I am focusing on building a solid rule basis for the new community and I will draft some reference sheets we can use for both games.

    Sending a call out to our brothers and those few exceptional sisters-in-arms in the Sun City across the border. A small core of us are alive in Alamogordo, gathering most weekends at Curious Games. For those of us who don't Facebook, please keep us apprised of yourschedules and feel free to drop in up here. Looking forward to meeting and playing y'all. ;-)

    I will be running Warmachine, Hordes league games, and Dark Age tutorials tomorrow at Military Gamer Supply from 7-9. I will also be available for painting and hobby advice. This week is my gf's birthday week so I may not be able to make to Sun City.

    Hey as long as you keep playing and having fun, that is the most important thing. As long as you do that people will come. Especially with the new starters and two player starters. Those are a freaking deal.

    There is a tournament coming up this weekend at Military Gamer Supply. For specifics on the tournament see the following link https://www.facebook.com/events/1903743529859099/. The tournaments are a great time and even if you are new to the game, the community is friendly and it is a good space to learn.

    Just wanted to thank everyone who showed up for last weekend's Steamroller Tournament. The competition was pretty stiff with me giving people easy wins. I got to play against Jeremy's two Skorne Gargantuans, which was both a beautiful and terrifying experience.
    Gage (Khador) and Steve (Convergence of Cyriss) both brought beautiful models to the event and provided each other stiff competition during the last round of the match. These guys know their armies and play them well so if you get the opportunity to play and learn from them during a casual game or a Q&A afterward, it is definitely worth your time.
    Convergence nearly destroyed all of the Khador expeditionary force, but Khador held out to the man and secured the objective before reinforcements arrived. At a great cost they completed their mission for the Motherland and their Empress; and the Convergence of Cyriss cult was denied a valuable ley line node, delaying the emergence of Cyriss....for now.
