Tournament Video – Ontario Team Championship

Last weekend the Combo Smite crew headed down to Burlington, Ontario to compete in Canada’s first WTC style team tournament, the Ontario Team Championship.OTC The event was run by Scott Talarico from Party Foul and a huge thanks go out to him and all his volunteers for putting on such an huge and successful Warmachine event. Team Combo Smite consisted of: Marc (Cygnar), Nick (legion), Kassem (Skorne), Adam (Cryx) and Darrell (Menoth). We made a good showing and our team went 3-1 and took 5th place. Most importantly we brought the camera down with us to record some games. Continue reading

Tournament 010 – Store Wars 2 – Marc’s Experience with Cygnar

Aww yeah. It feels good to be writing battle reports again… between life and work, I’ve had precious little time remaining for the important things: talking about glorious victories and ignoble defeats!

Podcast 065 – Cygnar vs Mercenaries, Kraye vs Ossrum: BIG Guns Comin' Through!

This week we roped a special co-host into helping us out… Bubba Dalton has had a meteoric rise through the WarMachine Meta, and if you listen to Chain Attack, you’ve already heard about his game against Trevor Christensen in the WarMachine Weekend “Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ)”.

Yes. THAT Bubba Dalton!

Bubba decided to turn the Jenk-factor up to at least 11 for our game together, which resulted in a very amusing game and an even more amusing podcast!

Podcast 063 – Cygnar vs Circle, Kraye vs eKrueger – Just Because He's Good Doesn't Make Him Easy!

This week for the podcast, Todd decided to get some practice in with the original Circle Power Warlock himself… eKrueger! And because I now no longer need to worry about Bradigus, but I’m still locked into fielding my anti-Bradigus Kraye list… I figured it was a good chance to see if he has any game whatsoever in this matchup!

Having played the game now, I can say, with authority; Maybe!

Podcast 002 – Cygnar vs Khador, Kraye vs Vlad1

Our second battle report podcast is now recorded and live! It’s an epic, 6 turn clash where Aaron brought his Imperialist Khador, led by the original incarnation of Vlad, against my glorious Cygnar with Kraye at the helm. This was a 35 point game, and by the end of it over 50 models had been taken off the table as casualties…

This week’s Tactical Question:
How do you get the best mileage out of Khador’s Doom Reavers? They’re a powerful melee unit, but at the same time they don’t have the stats (or the ability to be buffed) to get into melee easily. Suggestions, advice, or counter-advice is all appreciated!
