Going to start of today with the results from the Shattered Grounds: Rotterhorn events at North Cornwall Beasts and Bionics (link to the right>>>>)
For those that dont know about the Shattered Grounds leagues, full details including the rules and live map can be found on Privateer Press Events. 

So onto the games-
SG: Rotterhorn @ NCBB Night 3

After afew very close games and some hard fought battles the results went from
Andy - Cygnar - 32
Ian - Mercs - 29
Col - Cryx - 26
Steve - Cryx - 26
Luke - Retribution - 23
Liam - Circle - 20

To (without too much change)
Andy - 45
Ian - 42
Col - 39
Steve - 36
Liam - 33
Luke - 23 (didnt get any games in due to a crazy trip to Sonisphere)

And how did these results affect the Online Map?

The Bone Lands saw the Crxyian forces take on the might of Menoth.
Mercenaries held strong in thier camp at Southwest Chalice Foothills
Cygnarans started to infiltrate the Khador training camp at East Spur
Mercenaries also faced the followers of Menoth in a fight to hold the Sands of Judgement

Another great league night at NCBB.
But it was all leading to 1 thing.............

The SG: Rotterhorn Unbound Final Night @ NCBB

It was time for something BIG!
A 6 player, 150pts per side UNBOUND game.
This how how the setup looked (with beer and chips!)

The 2 sides were Andy (Cygnar), Steve (Cyrx) and Liam (Circle) against Me (Mercs), Col (Cryx) and Luke (Retribution)
It was such a great game. Alot of fun.
Andrews eCaine was the first to fall after being swamped by a swarm to 4+ Tough Pirates.
Closely followed by Liams eKaya who was taken down by Cryx.
The game was then down to Steves Cyrx v Col and Lukes Cryx and Retribution. (I pulled out becasue it would have taken 4 turns to get there)
The fianl result was a win for Col, Luke and Myself. With everyone grabbing 11 points for playing and the winners getting an extra 5 each.

There were 2 other prizes on th final night aswell.
The Sportsmanship vote went to Col who gained an extra 5 pts and the 2 PP Patches went to Andy for his Cryxian Necrotite refinary

With all of this, the final pints totals were-

6th - Luke - Retribution
5th - Liam - Circle
4th - Steve - Cryx
3rd - Andy - Cygnar
2nd  - Ian (me) - Mercs
1st - Col - Cryx

But the coin didnt go to 1st place!
Col won the last coin so couldnt win this one. I ran the event so couldnt win.
Andy in 3rd to home the shiny prize!

What about the worldwide Live Map? Well,

It was a four way tie overall.
2 areas each for Cygnar, Retribution, Circle and Mercenaries!
That makes for a VERY happy Merc!
On that note, I have to thank PG_vytzka for leading the Mercs on the PP Forums to victory!

Thats all for the Shattered Grounds leagues now for a couple of months.

Next up
Privateer Press New Preveiws
Protectorate of Menoth - Vessel of Judgment Battle Engine
Each Vessel of Judgment is a reliquary containing the sacred remains of one of the Menite priest kings of old and is capable of the most potent manifestations of Menoth’s power on Caen. The blazing fury of the Creator scourges infidels who venture too close, and the faithful who fall in battle around it can stave off death long enough to strike one last blow for their god.

The last of the 4 Warmachine Battle Engines. And what a stunning piece to end on!
Dont forget to check out the Full 360 Veiw on the main Privateer Press Site

And thats not all for the followers of Menoth

Menoth Redeemer in Plastic
Armed with devastating long-range rockets, the Redeemer was designed to deliver judgment from afar. The warjack’s deadly projectiles are launched into enemy ranks to explode in a cascade of deadly debris that leaves enemy infantry blasted, burned, and praying for the release of death.

To be honest, I dont know too much about Menoth. But I know this looks nice!
Once again, you MUST see the Full 360 Veiw

Skorne Domination Warlock - Master Ascetic Naaresh
A warrior-philosopher who seeks enlightenment through his own extreme suffering, Master Ascetic Naaresh has unlocked the powers of pain and forged them into a unique and devastating fighting style. Eager to challenge the limits of his philosophy against new foes, Naaresh has left his isolation to seek battle in the west. Before each engagement he submits to the ministrations of his paingivers so that he may draw strength and skill from the agony.

The second of the Domination Warlock models to be seen. And its stunning. Creepy but stunning. (Creepy is a good thing for Skorne isnt it?) 360 View on PP Main Site
