Welcome back to my second batrep in an ongoing series I like to call, ‘your tears are delicious’.  This weeks game brought me face to face (I had to crouch a bit) with Aaron.

Podcast 067 – AdamBatRep 001- Cryx Vs. Convergence – Aaron's Rusty CoC

Last Wednesday I was paired up against Aaron and his new toys, Convergence.  We opted out of timing the game even though we instantly regretted it, but it was a new faction for him and the extra time seemed to help with all the potential mistakes that would have been made in a rush.

(Marc: A word to our listeners: due to the new recording software I used, my voice is on one channel while everyone else is on the other. If you’re only hearing half of the conversation… that’s why! Or, as Nick politely put it: “Huge periods of silence with occasionally me, Adam, or Aaron saying something for a moment.” He’s a jerk-face.)

Podcast 050 – Cygnar vs Cryx, pHaley vs Asphyxious2: No Charging Makes Gaspy something-something…

As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m attempting to step up my tournament game. Towards this end, I’ve been playing warcasters that I’ve enjoyed but traditionally have been weaker with… that also happen to be all of Cygnar’s strongest warcasters! And as for Adam… Adam just lost a game, and Adam hates losing.

Gaspy2? He’s a warcaster for WINNERS. But, of course, Haley is not left-handed either…

Podcast 035 – Menoth vs Cryx, pSeverius vs Gaspy3: Simply Outgasped

This week’s game it was my turn to throw myself in front of the speeding Mac truck that is Adam and his nigh-unstoppable Cryx…

Also in this week’s podcast, I manage to almost keep my bitching about Cryx to a minimum (almost), Adam slowly warms up to Cryxian cavalry, Aaron politely mutes his microphone for potentially nefarious reasons, and Nick manages to keep us moving along at a healthy clip!

Podcast 021 – Menoth vs Cryx – Not Even A Little Fair…

This week’s podcast saw my forces of the Protectorate tangling with Adam’s Cryx once again. Last time this happened, I made a couple major blunders in the late game and lost the Harbinger to a couple boosted Venom shots… but before that point the game was definitely going in my favour. I was committed to not making the same mistake in this game… so instead, I made a bunch of brand new ones!

IMG_20140408_190450The scenario we were playing was Outflank (two 12″ diameter zones on the mid-line, 1 point for controlling and 2 for dominating), and I managed to win the Initiative (which is a happy, happy day for the Harbinger!). Give the battle a listen here or on iTunes, and let me know what you think!

Podcast 014 – 2 Vs. 2 Team Game – Davids Vs. The Goliaths

Two heads are better than one!

This week we decided to run a team game for something different.  Aaron, Adam, Kassem and Myself participated in the battle. Everyone brought a 25 point list and then we rolled randomly to see who would be paired up.

As always, you can listen to the podcast right here, or on iTunes at your preference. If you feel inclined to give us a rating on iTunes (and help Combo Smite become more widely listened to), that would be awesome and we would be grateful!

Podcast 009 – Cygnar vs Cryx, Nemo2 vs Gaspy2

For the battle report this week, I was going to be facing off against our local reigning champion from last season: Adam, and his unstoppable Cryx. I was hoping to get a Menoth get on the books, and with all the work I’ve been pumping into my Protectorate, I actually have 50 points of fieldable Menoth with the Harbinger at the lead… mostly warjacks (2 Vanquishers, 2 Reckoners, and a Devout), a few solos (Vilmon, an Allegiant, a Hierophant, Wracks, Choir, a Paladin), and that’s about it. Harby has enough Focus to run the army and keep herself safe, but sadly, there’s one warcaster in the game that this army would be completely powerless against:

Asphyxious2. His Feat has the capability to remove too much of my army in a single go… I could afford to lose 1 warjack in a turn (it would be basically unavoidable I imagine), even 2 if I was unlucky. But Gaspy2 can melt all 4 of my heavies and there would be absolutely, positively nothing I could do about it. Sure, Menoth has plenty of tools to stop the Feat… Greater Destiny’d Zealots, Temple Flameguard, Exemplar Errants, or Bastions, but I don’t *own* any of those yet! And since Adam was keen on playing his Gaspy2 list, I had to switch to my 2nd list… Nemo2.

Now, I love Nemo… all three versions of him, actually (I’m currently undefeated with Nemo3!), but I make no illusions that this is a good matchup. Nemo has 1 tool in his box against Gaspy… Polarity Field… and Cryx is filthy with ways to get rid of it. But at least there was a *chance* I could pull this off… to hear the full battle, feel free to listen below!
