Amazingly I managed to organize my schedule to get a Firestorm Armada game in! It’s been far too long, and work has kept me far too busy.
Unfortunately I was so excited to actually play that I only used my cellphone camera and didn’t take as many pictures as I like to do. The other downside is that this was a fluke for schedules lining up as a regular scheduled event was cancelled. This means that I’m not sure when the next game will get in.
Anyway – if you’d like to check it out, pictures can be found here as usual : https://www.flickr.com/photos/126632382@N05/sets/72157651739547899/
‘Tis the season to be too busy to blog…
Oh well, finally got my first Planetfall game battle report up and running! Not the first game, it’s actually my second – but it was already smoother than the first. Won’t be surprised if we missed a bunch. No matter – it was fast and fun. Took about 3 hours to finish, and that included multiple breaks to cook and eat and being distracted with home chores.
When we get this down and aren’t distracted, this game will fly!
Well, another day, another skirmish in the Storm Zone.
Was my first time taking the Ryushi out for a spin against my fellow Kurak Alliance compatriot. Don’t worry, this was a simulation, no dinosaurs were harmed in the making of this battle.
Been a little bit once again. Stupid life getting in the way of gaming…
Anyways, I managed to get in a great Firestorm Armada game against my better half. Was a fun game overall. When I made the fleet lists I really wanted to try out my RSN and Dindrenzi and while playing around with the list, I made it illegal. Ooops!
While illegal, it wasn’t overpowered. There wasn’t anything crazy bad, I just used RSN as the main force with Dindrenzi allied in. Can’t do that. Has to be Dindrenzi allied with RSN or RSN allied with any other Zenian league races that aren’t the big 3 (Dindrenzi, Relthozan, or Directirate).
Oh well, no harm, no foul. Game was damn close anyway. If you are interested in checking it out, it’s up on my flickr site here : https://www.flickr.com/photos/126632382@N05/sets/72157648740297618/
So I’ve been working on a video that I intended to be a quick how to play for Firestorm. That ‘brief’ video ballooned into an hour-long demo. So slightly overshot the 10-20 minute mark I had in my head, but what the hell.
I wanted to put together a short little show of how the game played with a bit of explanation as if I were showing a friend how to play. The videography is no where as sharp as I wanted, and the sound is not as clear – but I have a cheap little waterproof Kodak PlaySport video camera, so I didn’t know what else to expect really.
Been one heck of a week. Hoping to get a few more posts up about a couple of ideas, but haven’t had much time to write 😦
On the plus side, I did get a 900 point Firestorm game in. It was Ba’kash and Kedorian Alliance vs. Aquan on a Border Clash mission. Was a really fun game. Once again, I took a bunch of shots – so feel free to check it out! Continue reading
I had the pleasure of facing down my friend’s Dindrenzi once again. This time he was bringing his new RSN allies. He ended up using his RSN Battleship as a RSN Carrier (just to avoid confusion ahead of time.) I bought my Relthozan as usual, but added in my newly assembled Kedorian Battleship and Destroyer. I wanted to use more Kedorians, but a lack of assembled models and the limits of the number of frigates vs. point value we played at limited them. So instead I went with a Relthozan force with some Kedorians thrown in for flavor.
