This week in Eclectic Gaming 4/7: Adepticon+

Note, the above image is an entrant in the Crystal Brush Painting Competition from Adepticon, not mine. I wanted to start a new recurring feature on the site, covering my weekly exploits in gaming. Hopefully this will give you an idea of how my eclectic gaming tastes change week over week and show how some […]

Adepticon 2014 Day 1: Spectator Style

I was able to make it over to the first day of Adepticon yesterday. I’m not playing in any tournaments this year as I haven’t had a lot of time to invest in miniatures games since moving back to Chicagoland, but I still thought it would be interesting to check out. Thursday was a little […]

eSports, League of Legends and Warmachine?

I’m always looking for something to have on in the background and lately with my interest in League of Legends I’ve been watching the North American LCS(League of Legends Championship Series) on http://www.lolesports.com.  It’s pretty interesting to watch and having the matches both streaming live and available later on Youtube makes it pretty easy to […]

Speed Painting Blindwater Congregation – Part 1: Gators

When our club was starting up a Journeyman league last year, I decided I wanted another army that was quick to paint that I could churn out easily. I’d been painting my clean looking Retribution and I needed a change. I settled on Blindwater Congregation.  The gators are easy to paint and they don’t have […]

Convergence of Cyriss on Warroom

So back when Warroom was first released, I decided to make the plunge and pay the $60 to unlock all the factions in the app.  My reasoning was that I wanted it to be able to research the other factions for tournaments or purchasing decisions.  The only other options for this were purchasing all the […]

Kickstarters: Rivet Wars, Realm Works and Wild West Exodus

I feel like I’ve been bombarded by a number of gaming related Kickstarters I’ve been interested in lately.  It’s a much different way to get involved with a game, but I’m still having fun with it. I have purchased a number of games that started off as Kickstarters, Cards Against Humanity, Zombicide, and Evil Baby […]

How ’bout that Faction: Khador

Khador is sort of a contradiction for me.  I love the look of the big chunky ‘jacks and the defining characteristics are slow and high ARM.  While this is cool, competitively speaking I don’t see them on the table a lot.  I find Warmachine to be a difficult game to play casually, especially in our […]

Speed Painting Gators

In our store’s Journeyman league, I’ve started the Blindwater Congregation army I had intended to start last journeyman league.  I chose the gators because I thought that they would be easy to speed paint and thus win the hobby award for the league.  Additionally, it’s nice to have a painted army. I can paint well […]
