Islandscape 2018!

Well met!

Big year in Karate - climaxed with promoting to Sensei - but expensive (promotion ~ $400). So not going to Karate Summer Camp this year. The silver lining to this is that Summer Camp occurs on the same weekend as Islandscape (7/22), so I will be competing again this year.

Super Duper Kudos to Warbanner for coming up with the coolest format yet -- 5 armies (500, 525, 550, 575 and 600 points, no unit in more than one army) played in succession, with the 600 point army for a potential championship game. The NYC Gang of Four will be represented in its entirety at this event. We may have a little mini-tournament in early July, and/or chas and I may get together separately. Last year's performance proved once again that my level of play is not quite elite, so I feel justified in displaying a not quite elite level of cheesiness this year. I have already built 5 tentative armies for this tournament (see spoiler below).

Spoiler Alert!

I am not as concerned as I might be, which is little enough under normal circumstances, to provide my potential opponents a preview of my armies. Not only has no one ever copied any of my armies when previously displayed (in any context), but counter drafting in this format would be prohibitively disruptive.

Mini Test - 500 Point Army


Well met!

Last night, after our scheduled HoSS game, we played a little "normal" Scape, allowing me a chance to play my then current, tentative, 500 point Islandscape army:

180 Q9
120 Hydra
120 Bahadur
80 Deathreavers x 2
500, 13 spaces

Even this was not as cheesey as

180 Q9
120 Hydra
120 Hydra
80 Deathreavers x 2
500, 14 spaces,

my original draft. The former was powerful, but not much fun. For a little more swing, I'm going to try out

180 Q9
140 Eltahale
100 Mindflayer
80 Deathreavers x 2
500, 12 spaces

at chas' place next week, and/or some others of my current, tentative, Islandscape armies.

Why is your championship team 100 points short?

I like your early teams a lot.

"Why is your championship team 100 points short? I like your early teams a lot."

The above 500 point army will be played in the first round. The 600 point army is for the championship game (or to place).

A Little Less Cheese - A Lot More Fun


Well met!

Upon play and reflection, I'm making a few more changes. Besides the 500 point army, I'm working on the 600 point one for the same reason . . .

New Figures - New Changes



Well met!

Just purchased figures for Prince al'Kahora, Jarek Guy, and Viceron the Blood Knight.

Originally, at 600 points:

240 WoB x 3
140 Morgoloth
120 Raelin
100 Krav
600, 14 spaces

now considering:

280 PKs x 4
140 Racheim
130 Viceron
40 Theracus
10 Isamu
600, 18 spaces

Also considering replacing

150 Romans x 3
150 Q10
100 Mindflayer
100 Marcus
50 Me-Burq-Sa
550, 18 spaces

with

150 Romans x 3
150 Q10
100 Jarek Guy
100 Marcus
50 Me-Burq-Sa
550, 18 spaces

or, if not changing the 600 point army above, with

150 Romans x 3
130 Viceron
120 Kaemon
100 Marcus
50 Me-Burq-Sa
550, 17 spaces

Karate Camp



Well met!

It's very last minute, but I was made an offer I couldn't refuse to go to Karate Summer Camp after all, so I will not be attending Islandscape this year - after all the preparation and buildup!

Sorry, Warbanner, everyone - maybe next year . . .
