Gencon Cadet Program – Filled

So I am excited. Our event at Gencon filled the first day. I know we are going to have fun again this year.

For those that were not able to sign up and haven’t filled that time stop by and say Hello! If we have a no-show, we need all 12 spots filled so you could get lucky!

Roll the dice and hope for box cars!

Alpha Strike Point Adjustment

So the Alpha Strike point adjustment is live. Checking the published lists I have on this site, I can see I need to go back and re-calculate. For instance the Jenner JR7-D went from 20 to 26 points. I am planning on re-publishing the units with updated points and hopefully some paint!

Death of Commander Jamie Wolf

Today October 18th 3067 Commander Jamie Wolf was found dead in the cockpit of his Archer after having vanquished a number of members from Waco’s Rangers, including Wayne Waco himself. Due to this tragedy, Brian Cameron triggered condition Feral and brought a quick end to the fighting in Harlech during the unrest fostered by Word of Blake.

 

We are the storm

Fate whispers to the warrior

“You cannot withstand the storm”

and the warrior whispers back

“I am the storm.”

I am re-reading Redemption Rift by Jason Schmetzer and I ran across this quote today. It couldn’t help but think how this statement embodies the Dragoons. Call it what you will, the Dragoons have always been a force to reckon with. You know when you see that snarling black and red wolf’s head on the field of battle, you know you are in for the fight of your life.

A Dragoon’s Mentality

“Why Do I Succeed?

I succeed because I am willing to do the things you are not. I will fight against the odds. I will sacrifice. I am not shackled by fear, insecurity, or doubt. I feel those emotions drink them in and then swallow them away to the blackness of hell. I am motivated by accomplishment, not pride. Pride consumes the weak-kills their heart from within. If I fall, I will get up. If I am beaten, I will return. I will never stop getting better. I will never give up, ever.

That is why I succeed.” – Anonymous

Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries

These, in the day when heaven was falling,
The hour when earth’s foundations fled,
Followed their mercenary calling,
And took their wages, and are dead.

Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
They stood, and earth’s foundations stay;
What God abandoned, these defended,
And saved the sum of things for pay.

A.E. Housman
