I gotta give a big shout out to Rushputin for the Games Day loot / close enough to my birthday to count as a present I got today. You are correct in that I don't really need another 3 Sorceresses, buuuuuuuut I could use another one on a horse and a Hag BSB. I can easily turn a staff into a banner and swap out the Cold One for a Dark Steed. Plus, he included a Malus Darkblade model which I can put on one of the new Cold One models (and potentially even use in the near future since folks out here don't seem to mind special characters) and some super sweet IFL dice. The guys out here will learn to fear the power of the club dice.
It might take me a bit to get around to doing those conversions since I have some painting ahead of me.....
I and a couple of the guys at Game Kastle are going to do an Escalation League starting in a couple of weeks. I'm trying to set my expectations appropriately. We've had a pretty good number of folks express interest, but it's hard to say how many are actually going to show up. The turn out at the store for open gaming has been good recently, with 3 or 4 games going on. I'm guessing we'll have 10 or so people start out and maybe 6 or so play through to the end. More to come as the league progresses.
One thing I can say though, just the fact that a few of us had an idea, talked on the forum a bit, and made all the necessary arrangements with the store to get things rolling is a great sign that I'm going to be all set for wargaming out here for the foreseeable future.
