Last night I got in a 35ss game of Malifaux with Scott, our first game against each other, as usual at Meeplemart. Scott’s still new to the game, and learning his Ramos-led force. I guess you could say it showed, as Seamus and pals steamrolled the Constructs. You’ll have to wait for more details, though, as it’s going to take me a day or so to complete the batrep.
In other news, Loy and I did not get to try out a game of Freebooter’s Fate. Between my arriving 45 minutes later than planned, and Loy forgetting his stat cards at home, all we managed to do was go very quickly through some of the rules. Namely combat, looking at how it works, and seeing how deadly his scythe-toting Brotherhood dude is. We both agreed that the game has potential, and that we’d try again next week.
I did get to pick up the deck of cards, though. And we got to show off some of our freshly painted miniatures, as well. Loy brought his selection of non-starter Brotherhood, in total probably about halfway to being done. I brought my Imperial Armada starter, at a little more than halfway there. I also showcased my Space Marine and Stormsmith, as well as my GameCraft Old West buildings and my Games of War Sea Prince and two-storey building. Man…I brought a lot out today.
After running through Freebooter’s Fate a little, Loy and I walked around chatting. He might be interested in picking up a Hell Dorado starter (Saracens), so I need to work on him to convince him to do so (I’ve been eyeing the Westerners since they came out!). Steve (of Meeplemart) also got in some Dark Age stuff, which of course interested me. But I kept my urges in check and am staying true to my promise to myself to wait until I’ve painted the Freebooter’s Fate starter and the rest of the Stormsmiths, at least. I also eyed Abuela Ortega to complete my Ortega family for Malifaux, but again my willpower won out. I’m sure there were some other things I looked at, but all I left with was the deck of cards.
So I’m going to go back to writing that batrep for the Malifaux game.
Thanks for reading.
