Steamroller in February…

I started to run a monthly Steamroller Tournament that requires being fully painted and based. It’s been great putting some fire under people’s asses to finally paint up their models. It also helps create a mental deadline for themselves to finish painting their lists they want to play. Enjoy the pics!

2014 February HARDCORE Steamroller Tournament results…

Better late than never! I thought I would post something I have been slacking on in all it’s painted glory. I ran a 25 point HARDCORE Steamroller (using normal Scenarios) event to help motivate the locals to get more paint on their models. Doing small events like this helps a lot of people set goals for themselves. Enjoy the pics!

Steamroller 2014 Scenario Cards…

I’ve come across two different sets of SR2014 Scenario Cards and put them on up in the¬† Downloads page. Also be sure to check out the custom SR Player Record Sheet. They are a bit more efficient since you won’t have to keep asking your players if they won by a assassination or scenario.

Enjoy!

STEAMROLLER 2014 Released…

Last year I got to be apart of the SR2014 Beta and it was fun and informative. SR2014 seems to have fine tuned and remixed a lot of things for the better rather than a complete overhaul. I’m pretty satisfied with the overall changes. Some will have to be played out more to see how effective they actually are as viable scenarios. I have noticed through my personal experience that single zone scenarios aren’t usually won through scenario, which is why I was happy to see more split stuff in the latest revision.

Some noticeable changes are…

  • Destruction (Scenario #1) reduced to 2 objectives making it a more viable scenario.
  • Incoming (Scenario #7) zones being adjusted closer to each other to make it easier to contest.
  • Incursion (Scenario #9) now spread apart so a HUGE base can’t contest 2 flags at once and the middle flag no longer disappears, but at the cost of 1CP.
  • Into The Breach (Scenario #11) now getting some objectives added to help make the scenario more live for scoring purposes.
  • A interesting new addition is Balance of Power (Scenario #3) which introduces deducting CP’s from your opponent. I like the concept but having a single zone makes it that much harder to win by scenario.

2013 October Steamroller Tournament results…

Here are the results and pics of my last 35 point Steamroller I hosted at my LGS before I moved. We ran the SR2014 Beta and most of the players liked it. Looking forward to see the final changes in the future. It was a bittersweet event and I will miss all my players! It’s a amazing group and everyone has been self-sufficient and so supportive that I rarely got a “TO!” shout.

One of the perks of being based in Los Angeles is the amazing variety of cultures so there is access to so many food options. That being the case a group of us decided to eat some legit Korean BBQ at a spot I knew. Food coma maximus.
