Warmachine & Hordes 101: Preparing Yourself for a Tournament

Hey guys, I’m back! Been a while since I last made an article for Warmachine & Hordes, but I finally I made enough time for myself to do it. In this article I would like to talk about how to prepare yourself for an upcoming tournament. If your goal is to do your best in a tournament, this article is for you. So, without further ado..

A Short Story: The Redeemed II

The Liberation of Epdermus

wp-1490743584997.jpg

From his vantage point on the top of a small rise behind the central offensive line, Brother Ashriel looks out across the battlefield and smiled. The attack on the traitor’s last fortification is going well; The Dark Angels’ center, even though outnumbered by the traitors 5 to 1, is pushing the traitors back with superior fire discipline, laying a massive amount of suppressing fire while advancing slowly thru the ruble of what was once the Spire City of Epdermus.

“Fluff”

Greetings Fellow Generals!

One of the better parts of this niche hobby of ours is the fact that each miniature you own (and hopefully, paint) is part of a greater army and that each army has its own history of wins and losses, Victories and defeats, Heroes and cowards. That army is uniquely your own, no other person on the planet has that exact same army that you put on the battlefield time and again, sure he might have the same minis and copy the exact army list but that’s the superficial. What makes a tabletop army, An Army, is it’s back story (or as some call it: “fluff”).

Well, it’s a new year and we at the Paint Rack (yes, that’s the royal “we”) would like to wish you all a very happy new year, may your brush always be sharp, may your paint always flow and may your blending always be smooth

The Bard’s Corner: Is This The Right Game for Me?

On the first episode of the Bard’s Corner I’m going to talk about whether or not tabletop RPGs suits you or not. Because, to be completely honest, it’s not a game for everyone. Considering the time and effort it takes to play even a single game (which generally takes a few hours), it’s important to make sure that you’re not wasting your time; because time is a precious commodity for anyone, let alone adult hobbyists with a full time job.

The Paint Rack: Undercoating and Basecoating

Greetings fellow generals,

In this article, I would like to talk about the first steps of painting miniature toy soldiers: Undercoating and Basecoating.

Disclaimer: I have to let you know that there is actually a step before undercoating if you are super serious about your painting and that is cleaning the mini with warm water and soap to get rid of excess production oils (and scraping away “flash”) but in my experience, most gamers skip this step because we’re just not that anal about our painting. We want to get our new shiny on the battlefield and killing stuff as fast as possible, not lounging around on the painting table soaking in warm water… Gothar the Bloodthristy does not do jacuzzis…

Warmachine & Hordes 101: Part 4 – Attrition and Time Victory Condition

For the last of the Victory Condition article, I decided to combine the attrition and time victory condition. Not only because the time victory condition is very seldom pursued as a primary winning condition, but also because the way in order to achieve them is somewhat similar.
