After many debates and thoughts I actually picked up the IB/SL kit at the december tournament in Springfield, IL. I have ravaged the forums for info, tips and tricks. Waited until the FAQ came out and neutered my poor Ironblaster....sigh. However, I want to take a different approach then my dear and very admired friend / fellow ToFG gamer Ryan. So I have chosen to got he route of Ironblaster. I have even used it in one game, proxied of course, to try and gauge how well it will work.
Found a couple bits to convert it with since I like conversions:
|ebayed so I can use different wheels|
|ebaying also to use wheels and pistons from the STANK. I won't be using the small cannon lol|
In my first game versus Bretonnians using the Ironblaster we only did 3 turns, however in those turns I did manage to kill 5 knights and a trebuchet. i will say the reroll ability to ensure maximum distance is a big plus. We will be testing it out before adding it to the January lists. Additionally bits for the Blaster won't be in until christmas so while I have the Kit assembled in pieces I won't be posting anything until its together.
