WM: Khador Widowmakers (Unit)

The night before I left for the LVO, I decided that I would prep these guys/gal and apply the base color of brown to them. I did this so when I came back from the event I would have some motivation to get them painted.
Tuesday night was my 20th Wedding Anniversary, so no painting was done that night, but last night I sat down at my station and got these guys knocked out.
I am really undecided what is going to hit the painting station next. I was thinking of possibly painting Butcher 3, but I may decide to playtest him this weekend or Monday night, and I do not like to play with models that are primed or in a stage of painting. If I think I can get him done quickly he may be next, otherwise it may be a Trollblood model or possibly some Cryx.
Painting Points: 4

Daily Chronicle: 'LVO 2016 Friday-Sunday February 5th-7th Recap'

I thought I was going to have time at the end of each day to write up a daily recap of the LVO Warmachine, but that did not happen, so I am going to try and recap all 3 days in one post.

Daily Chronicle: 'LVO 2016 Thursday February 4th Travel Day'

Thursday February 4th was my son's and I travel day up to the Las Vegas Open 2016. We left Phoenix, AZ at 9:00 AM and arrived in Las Vegas, NV around 2:00 PM local time.
Since we arrived a little early for hotel check-in, I decided to get some shopping done for my family at the M&M's store. Once we finished with that, it just about time to check-in.
After check-in at the Bally's Las Vegas we rested for a little bit until 6:00 PM when badge pick up and registration opens for the event.
We headed downstairs to the events center to check out the venue. Once we picked up our badges we walked around the hall for a little bit and snapped a few photos.
Warmachine Final Table
After walking around for a little bit, my son and I headed next door to Paris and enjoyed dinner at their buffett.
Once dinner was completed we headed across the street to Caesar's Palace and my son and I walked the Forum shops to close out the evening.
It was now getting late an we headed back to our hotel so we can wake up early Friday and hit the Privateer Press store for some new releases.
Stay tuned for the official Day 1 of the LVO.

Daily Chronicle: 'LVO 2016 This Weekend'

Well the time has come since I first announced back in September that my son and I will be heading to Las Vegas, NV for the LVO 2016 Warmachine. This weekend marks the big event for the two of us and I am going to have a fun time.
Back in Semptember when I announced that we were attending, I posted a new Khador list that I was going to play...Sorcha 2. Well I finished painting that army last year, but as I stated I seem to always fall back to using Butcher 1. After some playtesting, I decided I was going back to Butcher 1. I seem to enjoy his playstyle and I am more comfortable with him. I also had to cut down the number of models in my list. I realized at 50 points with that many models, I was running out of time on the clock. I am still 'learning' Warmachine since I really do not have much time to get games in, so I figure I better limit my number of models to speed things up a bit. Since I am playing in Saturdays Master Tournament for 'fun', more than likely I'll finish 0-5. But I am really OK with that as long as I have 5 fun games and I can learn something by my losses.
My son and I will be driving out to Las Vegas tomorrow taking our time getting there, and then registration and badge pick up will be at 6:00 PM tomorrow night. Then we'll enjoy the rest of the evening 'Vegas Style'.
Friday we will do some fun open gaming, trying out our lists again and getting some Hordes in also.
Stay tuned for a daily recap of the Las Vegas Open 2016: Warmachine.

WM: Khador Ruin (Warjack)

I did not think it would be possible to finish my Khador Ruin Warjack before leaving for the LVO Warmachine Thursday morning, but I spent all last night to get him completed. He had a lot of little details on him that made me keep switching paints back and forth.
Ruin is a Character Warjack for my favorite Warcaster, The Buthcher of Khardov...and I cannot wait to give him a try this weekend. I am debating if I could squeeze him into my LVO list, but then I think I would have too few models in my list. So we'll try him out for fun instead.
"Ruin is a blend of engineering and black magic, an unsettling fusion that has resulted in a malevolently aware machine. Ruin’s scarred chassis is festooned with powerful Orgoth relics that possess a willful hunger to harvest souls and whisper incomprehensibly directly into the warjack’s cortex. Orsus Zoktavir has been entrusted to exploit Ruin as a weapon for the Motherland, whatever the cost."
