|Who doesn't like weapon masters?|
|Horrible pic, but it does the job.|
In other Legion news, while waiting for paint to dry I took another flip through Domination and finally read the Kallus fluff. Something in the art caught my eye, so I flipped to the models section and found what I was looking for: Kallus is probably 95% armor, which means he'd paint up super fast. When I looked again at his stats and other crunchy bits I found him more appealing that previously. A large part of this is the quick painting aspect. I've done two so far and need to finish five for the Journeyman league. While I have more than enough models in hand for it (eThags, eVayl, Rhyas, pThags, pLylyth), all of them either need to be assembled or stripped and all will require far more attention than Kallus would. Of course I don't have any Incubi, which would hamper his feat somewhat, but it's still somewhat appealing.
|Took a pass on the rivets this time around. Way too many.|
As a related side note, I got in a Hardcore style game last week, which went a lot better than I expected. Turns out the Nova Open is running 100% deathclock, or at least Hardcore, so my worries about getting turns done in seven (or five?) minutes was unwarranted. 37ish minutes for the game is still not comforting, but it's much better than short short timed turns. I still need to settle on a list, and a caster for that matter, but with Saeryn painted up she'll be seeing much more table time now. Having seen eVayl in action a few times now she looks very appealing as well, but since she took the Hardcore at Adepticon I feel like she'd be a flavor of the month type caster. I've also had a hard time coming up with a list I like better than the one that won that event, which has seen a fair bit of play at Game Parlor. Add the two together and I feel like I'd be taking last year's tech that everyone has had lots of time to plan against and prepare for, which seems like a bad recipe for success. Plus I'd have to actually assemble and paint eVayl. Stranger things have happened though...
