• Sloan1 vs Makeda1

    Gun Mages vs anti-gun Sometimes I ask myself why I am such a glutton for punishment.   Let’s take a bunch of POW 10 gun’s into battle against an army known for its armor.

  • Kara Sloan and Gun Mages

    Captain Kara Sloan. Her name summons nightmare visions of a wall of Hunters, threatening your caster on turn 1.  I guess that’s a way to play her, but I can’t see it being very successful.  I am pretty sure most factions have a way to handle the gun line, and with terrain being what it is, there should be fewer LOS opportunities for Kara to exploit. She is dangerous. Her weapon of choice, a Magelock rifle named Spitfire, hits from 14″ and does a POW 12 with 3 dice of damage.  Sloan can boost the damage roll, for 4d6 at

  • Sloane vs Amon

    This game was over fairly quickly. Amon was able to dominate a zone and control the other uncontested. I didn’t move Kara’s battlegroup down field quickly enough. Coupled with me forgetting what turn it was after a conversation, I practically handed him the game. I really dont have much to say. Amon did everything right. Challenged my rangers with his units, blocked range fire with his heavies and cover jack, and owned the zones.

  • Sloane vs Kaya 1

    I wanted to run a jack heavy list. Kara Sloane took her troop of jacks and a couple of Gun Mage Captain Adepts along with a Rifleman. A good group, with lots of bullets. We were playing with two objectives and two flags… Extraction. Killbox was up. I dont know how I feel about Killbox with Kara. On one hand, it forces casters into shooting range. On the other hand, kara is also in danger. I didnt get many pictures at the start. Also, missing Kaya’s list. The game was too quick, with Kaya stepping into range of everything. I

  • Captain Kara Sloan – Day 2

    Captain Kara Sloan – Needs Help Washing & Shadows Tonight I tried to brighten up various areas, and to me it all looks sloppy. Also, I tried some shadow/washing. I’m either not really adept at washing, or she really does have a slight 5 o’clock shadow.  I also touched up some of the metal rings and those things hanging from her straps with some Gunmetal Grey.  At this point, I rate my skill as “paint by number, but can’t stay in the lines.” Eye Don’t Know What to Do Next Despite my bunglery (not a word, but should it be?)

  • Captain Kara Sloan – Day 1

    Kara Sloan, Captain, Cygnar Army. For some reason, possibly the huge rifle in her right hand, I envision her as a natural leader of the Cygnaran long gunners.  I plan on painting her with a similar scheme, close to her studio job.  Her armor will be a darker blue, and she’ll get the red accent that my long gunners have. She assembled quickly, and with some help from my wife, she was primed and based almost immediately.  She took a light Prussian Blue coat for her primary basecoat, and a Mahogany Brown, Brass and Gunmetal Blue for her rifle and
