BRICKHOUSE in da house!

Well I have decided to put Khador away and play with new toys.  And one just came out.  Cygnars new character warjack Brickhouse.

First think I notice about this jack is the price.  Wow was it ever expensive.  More then I am used to paying for a jack.  I was expecting mid $40’s but it was high $50s.  (In Canada that means more then $70).

Time to dive in!

The kit is primarily plastic.  A couple small bits, head and legs are metal.  This should make it easier to change that ridiculous stock pose.  Seriously how did that ever make it past marketing?

Even have a sweet custom base from Secret Weapon for him.

Lots of flash and bits to clean off.  Doesn’t matter to me so much as I’m a horrible at this hobby.  But if you’re meticulous then you’ll probably spend upwards of 30min cleaning it all up.

Sometimes you have to balance models to get them to glue just right.  I am very impatient and wish glue would work faster!

Bam! Trying to get the pose just right.  I probably should have put the head on at this point but I waited until I had both arms on.  That was a mistake.  Ended up almost busting off the Ironman arm trying to get the head on.

And finally done.  Aside from cleaning off all the flash Brickhouse goes together fairly easy.  As you can see I put the hammer down so he wasn’t so crossing guardish.  Now just have to wait for Greg to get home from vacation so I can get him painted and on the table!

Cheers!

 

Battle Report WTC Charity Event

Today we participated a WTC charity team event at X-Planet in Mississauga.  Lionel was great to host the event and donate half the proceeds to the boys going to the WTC this year.  8 teams showed up to play the 3-man team event.

My team was Tim, a member of Canada’s WTC teams, and Jeremy… who is not… yet.  Tim played Circle, while Jeremy played Legion and I played Cygnar for the first time in 3 years….

I mean what can go wrong.

State of the Meta

Ok, it’s only been a couple weeks since mark 3 was official, and I may have only played like 10 games and seen about a dozen, but I AM READY to make some wild and inaccurate predictions about how the meta is going to gel!

Almost immediately I have noticed 2 trends in lists played and lists advertised on social media:

  1. Jack Spam
  2. Extreme ranged

It is my belief that these will be the two dominant list building strategies in the initial meta cohesion, so let’s take a closer look at them and then I’ll discuss why I think this will be the trend.
