I built my Hyperion acquired from Gencon last week and I’ve finally gotten around to posting pictures. If you look at the front picture, you will see 6 little ovals behind his head. There were some little antennae that were supposed to go there. I was missing one and I was leery of putting them on anyway. The last […]
The great and powerful Geoff Engelstein of The Dice Tower, Ludology, The Ares Project and Space Cadets fame, was kind enough to procure a Hyperion for me from GenCon. Since it looks like it won’t be coming out until October, I was all about getting one early. I was able to get it assembled this […]
I just got the Retribution heavy warjack kit and Hypnos upgrade and the first thing I wanted to do was check out how magnetizable they are.
Our monthly tournament was this past Sunday at The Only Game in Town. The tournament format is Highlander which means: 1 List 1 Solo 1 Unit(but it can have UAs and WAs) Only 1 of each Beast or Jack It’s a fun format because it stops spamming things. It also forces you to run Jack/Beast […]

If you haven’t read part 1, check it out here. Game 3: For my third game, I was paired up with another Retribution player, Bob. At least this time it was with a player from All Things Fun so I would have a chance to play for my store. There were only 3 Retribution players […]
As I paint up my Battle Magi for my Retribution army, I have been taking step by step pictures which you should be able to follow along with if you’d like to paint yours the same way. Here is the test model and I am making only 1 minor change which I will point out […]
I took my Retribution to our local tournament this past weekend on 3 games experience. It was a great learning experience and a heck of a lot of fun. I’ll briefly recap my games and mention some of the important points I took away.
I posted a first version of a Retribution Battle Mage paint scheme yesterday. I liked it but there wasn’t enough variation in the model so I added an additional color. I painted the leather looking areas with a gray-brown. I think that this helps the model out a lot. I’m feeling this as the scheme […]
