My Hobby and Blog in December 2016

Current Wyrd Kickstarter for a large scale war game sharing the same setting as the Malifaux skirmish game.
Around this time last year, I set some goals on how much miniatures I wanted to finish painting for 2016. I am so far off from what I wanted to accomplish! Though I started on many different projects, I have only completely painted 13 miniatures. I did completed transcribing my handwritten note before starting this blog. Now I have to just transcribe those handwritten notes I made after starting this blog. Anyways, I am hoping for more wonderful things in 2017 and that I will be more productive next year!

In Way of the Fighters, you have the ability to adjust how your character plays through selection of 4 Technique Packs. Each character select Technique Packs based on the Style requirements listed on their Character cards. The 30 Technique Packs are divided into 5 Styles: Chi, Fluid, Hard, Soft, and Wrestle.

The game is still under development. but I plan to update this blog entry as more Technique Pack cards are revealed. Listed after each action is the type of action and its priority value in parenthesis.

[Games] Way of the Fighter - Fighter Deck Overview

Updated on 5/6/2017: Various Techniques renamed (Push to Overpower, Knock to Knockdown, Forward to Velocity). Recently I backed Ninja Division's Way of the Fighter Kickstarter project, a tabletop game that pays tribute to 2D fighting games and designed by Benjamin Yamada. The aesthetic and game mechanics should be familiar to anyone that play fighting games in the arcades or on consoles.  There is also a sense of skill/level advancement during the match through the use of Mode action cards.
