Grace O’Malley – Update #19

Off to the Whiz again.  Plan for today was to work on the Troll Cav & Dragoon.  I got started and made a little progress.   I quickly figure out that I needed to base them.  Guess what!  I forgot to bring the bases.  Time to change plans..

I pulled out that Buccaneer that has been hiding at the bottom of that canvas bag for weeks.  I had to do some touch up, he has been bouncing around for months.  I didn’t remember all the details of how I did the other Pirate Jacks, so I looked up an old post.

Brass and Buckskin drybrush.  Blue ink wash.  Some more brass…

It still need some steel, black wash, work on the net, work on the balls, but it should be pretty easy to finish the next chance I get..

The Buccaneer is not really impressive stat wise.  What do you want for 3 points.  The one thing that makes me want to put it on the table is Assault.  This little guy can Charge 9″ and toss his Net another 8″.  If you can hit, KNOCKDOWN.  With a MAT of 5 you may have to boost, but it is so worth it.  For a 3 point jack and 2 focus, you can reliably knockdown Def 13.  Better than 50/50 on a Def 15.

Not sure about tomorrow.  Yard work, maybe the last time this year.

The Storm Warning is still up, but the pressure is down a little.  The latest forecasts shows Sandy may stop by and visit some S.O.B.s.  I don’t wish anything bad to happen.  I just don’t want her here…

I was hoping Magnus the Traitor would show up today.  No such luck, maybe next week.

    I LOVE the Buccaneer when he’s marshalled to Rutger Shaw as the pair have such great synergy for each other. Shaw offers an amazing Drive: Reroll so that the Buccaneer can either use the marshall ability to boost the hit AND re-roll OR assault and re-roll. Even if the buccaneer gets engaged, since he has Reach, Shaw can more easily benefit from his flank, making him potentially quite dangerous with his magical sword. Oh and he has Dodge AND Tough.

    Not bad for a 2 point solo!
