Terminus Challenge: Status and Painting

Time for an update. The casters are listed with their faction, the result of the game, and what I felt decided the game (List, Skill, or Dice). There's also a link to the army list and report from the game.
  • Cryx:
  • Cygnar: eCaine (Win: Skill)
  • Khador: pIrusk (Win: List/Skill)
  • Menoth: pSeverius (Win: List)
  • Mercenaries (Four Star):
  • Mercenaries (Highborne): Durgen (Win: Dice)
  • Mercenaries (Searforge): Durgen (Win: List/Dice)
  • Retribution:
  • Circle:
  • Legion: Saeryn (Loss, Dice) og eThagrosh (Win, List/Skill/Dice)
  • Skorne:
  • Trollbloods:
  • Minions (Blindwater):
  • Minions (Thornfall):
The painting and modeling is going well, and here's the current status of the models. I'm about two thirds done, and several of the models are easy to fix, so that's comforting. I should probably paint up some more Bane Thralls, but I've never had the pleasure of going above the initial unit size with this build, and I have two rust colored crappy old Bane Thralls I can bring in case miracles do happen.
  • Lich Lord Terminus: Outdated color scheme.
  • Cankerworm: Final details.
  • Skarlock Thrall: Final details.
  • Machine Wraiths: Final details.
  • Necrotech & Scrapp Thrall: Not purchased.
  • The Withershadow Combine: Needs a touch up.
  • Darragh Wrathe: Final details needed.
  • Bane Thralls + UA + Tartarus: Done.
  • Bile Thralls: Done.
  • Madelyn Corbeau: Done.
  • Orin Midwinter: Done.
  • Rorsh & Brine: Done.
  • Wrong Eye & Snapjaw: Done 
  • Saxon Orrik: Done. 
I was asked if I didn't fear meeting opponents that knew all about my list and tactics at the ETC. There are 240 players there, and I'm meeting 2% of them. There's not much risk of facing up against someone that actually reads this blog, but worst case scenario:

He decided to bring a counter to my list, he somehow made it through his games with such an impressive handicap, and he read everything I've written and remembers even the smallest detail. The end result: I lose a game. My team mates can pull through, and if they can't it's one round lost and a round on me at the pub.


  1. It doesn't sound like something that's worth giving much thought or consideration. Going to ETC with a list that aims at beating your specific list seems like a waste of time :) I'm actually thinking of going to the event my self to watch some games and maybe get some casual games in. I'm not on any of the DK teams that are going, and I don't really have the time needed to prepare myself for such a serious tournament :)

  2. You could always go as backup, in case someone get's thrown in jail for bringing little pointy metal objects on the plane :D

  3. Hehehe xD I guess I could do that. We will see when the time comes. For now, I'm just thinking about going as a spectator... Wouldn't be the worst place to learn stuff about playing Cryx ^^

  4. Don't forget to update this post!

  5. Can't begin doing things just because they "make sense" now can we!? (done) ;)
