oozeboss Posted November 20, 2010 Report Share Posted November 20, 2010 (edited) Greetings and salutations. This is the night before my first ever Malifaux tournament, and I thought I'd initiate a bit of a rolling commentary, most probably in order that others can learn from my inevitable mistakes. The tournament is to be held in the NSW town of Gosford, and my chauffer (and Malifaux mentor), Tiny, is due to pick me up at (allegedly) 7:00am tomorrow for the 94.6km (or 1hr 31min, according to Whereis) drive north from "The Shire" (the most southerly aspect of the Sydney suburban sprawl) to the Central Coast manifestation of cosmopolitan downtown Malifaux. Details of the tournament can be found at http://www.wargamerau.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=104453 but essentially it's a 4 round escalation, with 3 scraps + 1 brawl. Sadly, the visionary responsible for the wholeshebang won't be present due to other pressing issues (and our thoughts go out to him at this time), but as Colette would say, "Ewwww, there's a ladder in my gussett!" ... erm, sorry ... that should read, "The show must go on!". After initially labelling myself on these pages as "Zoraida's Sugar Daddy", I am finally going to indulge in some sustained Hag Lurrrve. The only figures that I know will play a part in all 4 games are The Hag, the Doll, and my personal fave, Doppla (xoxox) (sorry, that's kinda wyrd, huh?). Having played the grand total of two games of Malifaux to this point (both being quite substantial smashings - with me being the smashee rather than the smasher), I am not exactly holding my breath about my chances, except that I should be 300% more experienced a Malifool by this time tomorrow night than I am right now. (Which probably only means that I'll have less excuses after that.) I have a wyld & eclectic mix of superbly undercoated minis in my knapsack (and their being in their lingerie, painting wise, is precisely why I'll be taking no happy snappies to accompany this fable), some of which - I'm thinking Jack Daw, Bad Juju & Killjoy especially - are there primarily to fool any prospective opponent into thinking me a potential tiger (instead of the tabby cat that I really am). For the 40ss finale, I'm thinking my crew will be: Zoraida (Voodoo Doll ... pretty obviously) Doppleganger Convict 'slinger Hans Rami LaCroix Hooded Rider (& isn't that just one impressive hunk of pewter!!!!!) 4 Malifaux Raptors (obviously using ring-ins) The Grand Master Plan is to combine sheer unadulterated speed with a heavy fire base, but the reality will probably be that I am Victory Points Inna Bun for anybody with even the slightest bit of intelligence &/or experience. Or miniatures. The knowledge of that doesn't diminish in the slightest my rapidly growing sense of excitement at the prospect of my impending Day of the Learning Curve, and on this note (a C flat), I shall sign off here until after the event. (Now where did I leave my pocket Rathnard ....... ?) :masks:masks:masks:masks:masks :hoodedrider:zoraida:hoodedrider :masks:masks:masks:masks:masks :marshmell:marshmell:marshmell:marshmell:marshmell Edited November 20, 2010 by oozeboss Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
