Succubus is up Vynde. That makes another model you'd be able to use for Masters at LnL, and two models for me to buy for you the day before.....the model looks pretty good to me. Certainly better than the artwork for sure.
The succubus looks really good.....most of the models that have come out recently are impressing me.......i'm taking it as a good sign
What was the clock app were you using at the steamroller USB?
I suggest we invest in some chess clocks, or at the very least, kitchen timers. This way, no one has to rely on their cell phone to stay charged for the entire tournament.
I will look into the kitchen timers, as each chess clock is going to cost a minimum of $30US plus shipping (which includes the discount for a bulk order; see below).
We'd need about 8 clocks for our largest turn-out so far. I assume we'd be able to start with that many, and add a couple later on.
It would take an investment of about $20 for each of us that turns out every Sunday for a group pile of clocks for tournaments.
What we can also do, is just take stock of who wants to chip in for a clock for themselves, and it's theirs to keep for the $31 price tag. We'd just have to have it on loan if said person wasn't going to make it for a tournament.
This is the clock I have my eye on. It's high quality, and the best price I've been able to find.
We'd also need 2 'C' batteries for each clock. Costco has them in bulk.
Now the million dollar question; Who's interested?
I would chip for clocks for the group. Although it would be cool to have one of my own too, I would pay the 31 to own a clock for my home games.

The App i use is called game clock deluxe (i have the pro edition.....cost like .99 i think, and it works good) and i totally agree with investing in proper chess clocks. The Battery on my tablet works really good, but i'd dread to have it die during the final round of a tournament. I'm not sure if i would buy one for home, but i'd definitely throw $30 into the pot to get some for our community.
Id be willing to chip in 20-30$ to help the group out, have been having a blast playing. Hopefully I can make it down for some 50 pt games this sunday.
$31 is the cost for a bulk discount on 5-10 clocks. That price would get you a clock for yourself.
We also have to factor in shipping, and the cost of the batteries. But, if everyone is getting their own clock, they can supply their own batteries.
For the tournament in May, I'm going to do a bunch of random draws instead of having Biggest Loser, and maybe even axe the Best Painted army prize in order to do-so. This depends on the turn-out of course.
This would be to give some prizes to the guys that always place somewhere in the middle.
Winter argus......and new menoth plastic kit are up.....the sactifier looks pretty cool.
So what? No privateer press support? Oh well....we will just have to figure it out ourselves.
I am in and will pay for a clock. I am interested in a 50 point game this sunday, anyone interested? Ghool, i am going to pm you about L&L.
It's not anything I'm really concerned about, and to be honest, the amount of space they have isn't going to be large enough just for our regular meet-ups.
I also don't feel they want their entire store filled with Warmachine/Hordes guys on Sunday, especially if they won't be carrying any of the product. I don't know if they will be carrying anything from PP. Has anyone taken a look in there?
I'll take a tally of who wants a chess clock on Sunday.
i was going to take a look yesterday, but i never made it......i may swing by on saturday.
Hey guys, so I got everything sorted with Privateer Press and I actually have an order for the Menoth / Khador box set. I'm taking the Menoth, my friend is taking the Khador. You guys still playing at Sentry box at the weekends? Mind if he and I stop by sometime and meet the lot of you?
Seriously, if you guys need a demo, I can walk you two through one, but I'll be running my painting day for the most part. Once he gets a demo game in, there should be a few guys to get some more games in against.
We meet up every Sunday when the Sentry Box opens at 11am. We're usually there until 4pm or there-abouts.
Awesome. Im usually there every sunday anyway buying new stuff for Pathfinder nights (new minis, etc) so i'll stop by... i assume you guys just play on the tables up top... are you in the back room up top or in the main / common area?
Salutations gentlemen, and fellow gamers. Recently it has come to light that I hate putting together pewter models. Basing and painting is fine, but the very idea of pinning another pewter model makes me wish for death. This has come as a surprise to me, because holy pockets full of man sauce do I love putting together plastic GW models. Anyways, I was wondering if there is any of the core group that would be willing to build these suckers for me. Obviously I'd prefer volunteer work, because unlike me you just happen to love doing it, but by no means would I expect it. I would be willing to discuss a reasonable fee for services rendered. Currently I have 10 Cryx Bane knights, 6 Bloodgorgers, with General Slaughterborn, Pistol Wraith (variant pose), DeathJack, a Wraith Engine, a Master Necrotech Mortenebra and Deryliss. I am aware that for those of you going to L&L there might be a shortage of time. I am in no rush.
Hey dude, pewter isn't that bad.....you just need some good glue. if you stop in this weekend, ask the guys, as i know most of them prefer certain types available from sentry. I for one, use an industrial type of cyano-acetate, but generic superglue types from the hardware store should work good(Bleed has been using Loc-tite with some success lately) Unlike plastic models, you won't be able to assemble 50 models in one afternoon, but you'll grow to appreciate them significantly more. For certain models, a pin drill is a must, Deathjack, wraith engine for certain......i even pinned mort and deryliss, but i like to go a little overboard with my pins......i think terminus has upwards of 20-30 pins in him (honestly i stopped counting after 15) of various sizes ranging from 1/64" to 1/8".......but he is also heavily reposed/converted.
I bought one of those overpriced $12 citadel superglues with the brush applicator and I find it puts on the PERFECT amount of glue for pewter models since its not globbed on too much. It's thin enough that the bonding will dry relatively quickly.
Once I ran out of that and wanted to keep using the brush applicator (since I think that was the key more than the citadel stuff...) I did what Vynde does, buy the Krazy glue from grocery store or walmart for like $1-$2 and constantly refill it.
Though my buddy uses glue he bought from sentry box, think its in the orange tube and has either a purple or blue label on it and he swears by the stuff.
Happy to see how active this thread is!
Anyway I purchased that two player battle box and for Menoth I am getting:
Warcaster High Exemplar Kreoss
Crusader Heavy Warjack
Vanquisher Heavy Warjack
Repenter Light Warjack
Exemplar Cinerators Unit (5 models)
Out of it... anybody able to give me any advice on what to collect next?
I've heard both the choir and vassals are essential for powering up the jacks...
Ugh cant wait for my order to arrive so I can read the rule book haha
Choir is essential, menoth jacks are built around the inclusion of them. The reckoner for the points cost is their best and most flexible jack. Infantry and solo's on the other hand are more caster dependent, although errants can be pretty flexible with most of their casters. My advice is pick a caster, then ask for advice.
Local Forums, so you can check the calendar for events, and rules.
I run events at the Sentry Box, but there are a few other stores around town that host them as well. My events however, have the largest prize pools and prize support. The leagues at the Sentry Box are also free, which I know the other stores that run them, are not.
Depending on your location, and the days you are free, you can find a venue that will fit you best. Myth Games is on Friday nights, Trilogy is Saturday nights, and Sentry Box is Sundays.
But, that said, we're the most fun to be around.
Look forward to meeting you guys, btw my names Wayne so when I show up i don't have to say "LOL IM CRYAGE ON PP'S FORUM!" (Feel weird using alias in real life haha).
