Johnny's Hobby Table - Episode 109 & 110

So here's what I've been working on:

Up first, the next Orctonnian boar. This fella is done.

Labor Day Weekend - Rockwars Prep Tourney

Panoramic view of my basement during the tourney
Shows all 6 tables

Since Rockwars was such a unique comp system I decided that a prep tournament was in order.  My wife and child were planning on leaving for Labor Day weekend to visit in-laws so I figured this would be the perfect time to have a ton of friends over for a big tournament while getting valuable practice in.

Reviewing the size of my basement I decided that I could fit 6 tables and thus the 12 person cap was created.  I will be travelling with 3 other guys from the greater Chicago area so they were first on the invite list.  After that the invite went out to other local clubs and the result was 12 players who were excited about the comp system and for a great day of Warhammer.

Rogers' Hobby Desk - Episode 109

As described in episode 109 of Point Hammered, I haven't been up to much on the hobby front!

I've really just been waiting for this guy's base to arrive. Once that shows up, I can begin work on him in earnest. Other than that, I've just been dickin' around with an exalted flamer model a bit, trying to figure out what I want to do with that for Northstar.

Have I run out of hobby gas after QCR and Podge? I guess we'll see!

Rockwars GT Preparation

Rockwars GT 2014 will be commencing in a little over a week on September 12-14.  For those of you who haven't heard of this tournament please take a look at it for next year and read the rules on their website here:

Due to the nature of the tournament and it's composition I had plenty of work to do to prepare!  This post is all about that preparation including new units/models and a look at the unique comp system.  Post 2 will be about a 12 man Prep Tournament that I held at my house using the Warscore program and Post 3 will be in a few weeks documenting how poorly I performed in Little Rock.

Ask the Bastards #9

A reader named Thomas has a question about Apoxie Sculpt in this installment!

I've done some research using google about whether to use protection gloves or not, when I sculpt with epoxy clays. (Because of chemicals)

Since you guys have a lot of experience using It, would you recommend using gloves or not? Have any of you had allergic reactions, or have I just read rumours?

An informal poll of the Bastards indicated a split decision. Three used gloves while five did not.

Paca 2015 - Bonus Fortitude Unit Examination

The Rodge emailed the Paca packets out last night.  Got me excited!

After some discussion with folks I thought I would go out and make a list of what generated fortitude at Paca (that normally does not).

Here are the Rule additions in play;
The following unit generates two positive Fortitude points:
Giants (any kind)
   Only when standing. A Fallen Giant temporarily generates 0 Fortitude
**every army can take DoW Giants per the special rules

The following units generate one positive Fortitude point:
Army General
Battle Standard Bearer
Any unit containing a Standard
Any core unit containing a champion, but only if that unit does not have access to a Standard
Any Monster that does not have a ward save or regeneration
    (including Monsters being ridden by some prick

Meet Jayjack

For those that don't know me, my name is Matt Jayjack, also called The Tallyman by some. You may have seen me helping out at Waaagh Paca, or heard about my awesome ability to lose games on the Point Hammered podcast. I am, at heart, a silly person.
