Scars of Caen Campaign Season 1 - In Review

Season 2 of the Scars of Caen campaign is almost upon us and I've been a little bit lax on posting here recently, so I think it's about time I posted this up. I was playing a Purist Cygnar army, and here's how I got on.

An Adventure in the Iron Kingdoms

I've been a big fan of the Iron Kingdoms setting for a while now. I've read a lot of the background for it in various PP rulebooks and No Quarter for years and I picked up the Iron Kingdoms RPG rulebook when it was released just for reading as much as anything else. Now I've got the opportunity to play the system and see what it's like. Gerry Nolan is GMing a campaign and has invited me to take part, so I needed a character. The game doesn't support Gatorman characters unfortunately (so no Gatorman Bokor/Shaman for me) so I looked into my other faction. One thing I've always loved about Cygnar is Gun Mages, so I chose to play one of them, although rather than a Cygnaran Arcane Tempest Gun Mage, I'm playing a Llaelese exile instead. As my second career, I've gone for Investigator, as it fits his background and past, which can be seen below. Gerry has set his campaign in the recent past of the current storyline, our game begins in 588AR (the current storyline is about 608AR).

It's Still Imperial Guard To Me.

Screw you and your Astra Militarum copyright crap. Now that that rant is out of the way, I picked up the new Codex last week and I have to say I really like it. I know some people got a little upset that some of the more obscure vehicles have been dropped, but I don't own any of those. What I do have is a large collection of Vostroyan infantry and plenty of Leman Russ, Basilisk, Hellhounds and Chimeras. I was delighted to see I need to rejig almost nothing of my existing squads and most are playable as they are.

Welcome to the March edition of What I Painted Last Month. I returned to my usual Hobby Butterfly self and painted a couple of different things this time. Another improvement over last time, as I managed a total of 21 figures this time.
