(*Marc: Please note that when Nick says “This Weekend”, he means many months ago now… he’s been busy, and so I have taken it upon myself to finish up these half-done reports, knowing more-or-less what happened to Nick over the course of the day. I apologize for the vagueness of the reports, but Nick takes beautiful pictures and played really, really well at this tournament, and I figure we can all learn something from his experiences! I will let you know when I take over in earnest, but for now, back to Nick’s preamble!)

The Quest for Mediocrity: Going Hardcore

medocrity

     So as I’ve stated before, I’m working on getting my two 50 point Protectorate lists painted up.  If I can manage it between work, the wife and kids it will be the first time I’ll have fielded a fully painted force since I started WarmaHordes.

The Quest for Mediocrity: I am a Special Unique Snowflake

Special snowflake is special

In the Protectorate, it snows fire.

Greetings all!  I’m back to regale you with more tales of my epic adventures in failure.  Well, actually I plan on discussing with you some of the more eccentric aspects of my list building and play-style; why I choose some of the unconventional units that I do and why I favour some of the “lower tier casters”.

Tournament 004 – Nick and Aaron's Experiences

Last weekend I ran a 50 point Steamroller event that Nick and Aaron attended. It was a tonne of fun, and Nick’s already posted his written batreps, but here’s the podcast we recorded shortly afterwards and I FINALLY managed to finish editing!

Video 001 – Day of Valour Tournament Coverage – Final Table.

Marc traveled to the wilds of Hamilton recently to compete in Black Knight Games’ 50 pt Hardcore tournament. He managed to bring back failure AND some video footage from the final table.

So its with this I formally announce that Combo Smite is going to be publishing Video Footage from local events we attend whenever possible and we also plan on getting into actual Video Battle Reports!!

This is the Finals match between eHaley and Zaal.  Hope you enjoy.

Let us know what you think and what you want to see more of in the comments!

Battle 013 – Quick 15pt Games for Charsaug: Menoth vs Legion

So last week, before the tournament (which is going live in a few hours now… should be up before I finish this!), Ozzie and I got together for a few quick games. Originally, I was hoping to get some practice in for the tournament, but Ozzie’s back had been injured earlier in the day (something to do with moving air conditioners out of a truck) and he wasn’t up for anything long or complicated. So instead, we played a pair of 15 point games pitting Legion against the Protectorate for our part in the Charsaug League!

Tournament Battle 001 – Nick's Quest for Retribution

This weekend the Combo Smite team played in our first official Steamroller tournament.  The tournament took place last weekend at a local game store in London, The Game Chamber. (PLUG!!)  It was a 35pt Steamroller 3 list required and during list selection your opponent vetoes one of your lists and you get to pick from the remaining two.

As this was my first tournament I was not very on the ball with taking photos every turn but hopefully its enough to get the gist of the games.

I brought Ravyn, eVyros and Ossyan as my 3 lists.

Max HG Riflemen + UA
