A custom a day: A theoretical challenge

Posted March 13th, 2019 at 07:00 PM by flameslayer93
Hereís an interesting thought that popped into my head last night as I was trying to sleep:

Create 1 custom unit a day for X amount of time. A month, a season, a year. I wouldnít have to actually purchase the figures used for the design, but it could be an interesting way to get many figures that are sitting around used if I had them.

Today, with a clearer mind, I realize that actually going through with this is quite difficult. Although, what may not be as difficult is averaging 1 custom unit a day. Thinking of the sheer number of designs sitting on MSE on my laptop, both ones that Iíve ďreleasedĒ in the Wave format and those that havenít been (many many many more), Iíd say that it might not be too difficult to average a custom a day, or even every other day. When I designed or chose existing customs from my old ďblockĒ of customs, I found it was easy to do a bunch at a time, coming back to add polish later.

Another part of my designs was the...

Strange Cravings

Posted March 7th, 2019 at 09:35 PM by flameslayer93
They started yesterday. My mouth was parched, but drooling. My knees buckled under my own weight. Food could not sate the hunger. Sleep was not refreshing, and I could barely rest a few hours before awakening. I stared into endless empty with desire.

To Scape.

Ok, most of the above is extremely untrue and only there for entertainment. But Iíve been craving some competitive scape, fiercely. We havenít been able to attend any recent events due to financial and vehicular troubles, but hopefully in April and May Iíll get my cravings filled!

Now, Iíve no clue what the format in New Philly will be in May, but I do know what it is in April. 600 points, but everything must be Unique. That is a tantalizing challenge.

One interesting part of the format is that there are some cookie cutter armies that already exist. They all stand a notably better chance here than in other formats simply because the reduction of commons spam. Iíll...

You Know Donner and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen

Posted January 18th, 2019 at 02:47 AM by flameslayer93
But do you know the most famous reindeer of all?

It's 2019! I know I'm late. But that's not the point of this post.

So, in spirit of the new year, I think I should try to set a resolution for the year. I'm not entirely sure what I should try to achieve. And then, like virtually all new year's resolutions, probably fail miserably at it.

Or, maybe not! My goal for 2017 was to get into the competitive 'scape scene, and my goal for 2018 was to further my relationship with my then girlfriend, Tina. Both of those worked out, and now I need to think of something for 2019.

I have plenty of low hanging fruits I could reach for including:

1) Save money! Doubt it, I don't want to devote myself to money.
2) Start excersising! I know I've put on some weight, but even I can't take this seriously.
3) Start going to bed at a reasonable time. I work second shift...
4) Squeeze more hours out of a day so I can...

Donít disrupt the classroom!

Posted December 21st, 2018 at 09:39 PM by flameslayer93
With the latest C3V release, (Wave 21, pack 2), I thought Iíd post ideas about itís ĎDisruptorí unit Boreos. I got a couple playtests in with him, and Iím looking forward to playing more of him, with and without Talingul. Iím loving how he is a rather potent Disruptor class unit, and has a few builds where he could shine as the MVP (or runner up).

But first, I should define a Disruptor class unit. Basically, itís a unit whoís job is to deny your opponent strong turns. The strongest Disruptors are Deathreavers. They can stall out melee units by screening them and taking away valuable attacks by simply leaving engagement with them. They donít do as much harm to ranged units who can still shoot, but they are effective at gumming up the map.

Other classic ones include Gladiatrons, Major X17, and Air Elementals (who disrupt in a similar way to Boreos). Sadly, all of these units are best at disrupting melee units.

Also, while they donít deny movement...

The Darkness Within vs The Blazing Monarchy

Posted November 6th, 2018 at 02:29 AM by flameslayer93
Tomorrow, @LoveElemental and I are going to play a 900 point match where we'll just toss a bunch of our customs into one match and see how it turns out. We've released one on the site (Rastuci Sunce), but there's a whole bunch still there. I'll give a quick rundown of what each one does (unless it's official/c3v/Rastucis, in which case I'll just link it ).

The Darkness Within (played by me)
Morgoloth
Mezzodemon Warmongers x2
Isamu
Wolves of Badru x2
Mardrom (custom)
Gatekeepers of Elchim x4 (custom)

The Blazing Monarchy (played by LE)
Vječno Sunce (custom)
Rastuci Sunce x4
Armoc Warlord (custom)
Bovem (custom)

We're set to play on Juxtaposed (both halves combined), partially because it's been set up for a good few weeks now.

A quick run-through of the customs not linked:
Mardrom - A melee dragon who can kill dice based on his revealed order markers....
