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!

This set of 4 battle reports are from late January (yeah, I’m a little behind!) and will cover my results at the 2nd Store Wars tournament which happened at Black Knight Games in Hamilton.

We’ve already done the podcast for this (WEEKS ago), but if you’d like a more detailed blow-by-blow… read on!

Tournament 010 – Store Wars, Results with Legion, Mercs, Cygnar, and Legion (again) – Arcane Assisted!

Don’t have time for my Full Writeup(tm) which will drop later this week, but I wanted to post the awesome podcast we recorded with the brilliant gentlemen from Arcane Assist. If you’re not listening to them, you probably should… and not only because they spent 20 minutes answering all my silly questions on their last podcast!

Podcast 044 – Menoth vs Skorne, pSeverius vs pMorghoul: My Own Little Maginot Line

This week saw my noble forces of the Protectorate once again grappling with Kassem’s Skorne. Could my ranks of spear-and-halberd weild extremists hold back the crush of muscle, sinew, and steel arrayed against my fragile warcaster?

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!

Battle 028 – Menoth vs Legion, pSeverius vs Bethayne: Why Need Skill When You Have Luck?!

This week’s upcoming Podcast is between Aaron’s forces of Khador and Todd’s Circle army… which freed me up to challenge our local Legion player, Darrell! I’m also looking for more practice against Legion, since they’re a powerful Faction that I know woefully little about.

For example, I didn’t even know Bethayne existed until last night…

Battle 024 – Menoth vs Legion, pSeverius vs Saeryn: POW15 Grenades to the Rescue!

Many of you will remember my good friend Ozzie (real name “Nick”, but since he shares that particular name with MoFaux/Nick, we’re forced to stick with Ozzie), who plays Circle, Legion, and Retribution. In the few months that Ozzie’s been playing WarMachine, he’s basically bought 3 entire Factions and has been improving in leaps and bounds. Our first handful of games were cakewalks for me, but these days he wins as often as he loses and gives me a good run for my money at the worst of times!

Ozzie had taken some time off playing WarMachine (basically since the last time I played him!) to deal with some “Real Life” issues. He’s going to be moving to distant, frosty Barrie (north of Toronto and about as frosty as Montana), so our time together is more finite. All the more reason to get more games in!

Battle 023 – Menoth vs Khador, pSeverius vs pIrusk: My Old Man Can Beat Up Your Old Man…

While Nick was happily smashing druids with his dwarven axes (Dwarven crafts! Fine dwarven crafts, straight from Orzamar!), Aaron and I were free to indulge in a little light WarMachining of our own.

Now, I say “light”, but the 2 lists that Aaron brought to the table… okay, let me back up a second. Every week, our group (of now 8 players) has randomly assigned matches. Before we show up, we have no idea who we will be playing, to encourage us to bring more “all-comers” sorts of lists (and to get more tournament-style practice in). Aaron’s two lists, and I kid you not, were titled in his War Room as “Strakhov 50pts” and “Anti-Menoth List”.

Yeah.

Battle 022 – Mercs Vs. Menoth – Ossrum Vs. pSeverius

I had the chance to play a game against somebody new today.  Jay is a Menoth player who was just in town to accompany his friend Mike who came to London to trade his Galleon for an extra Earthbreaker which I had acquired recently.IMG_3450

So, Jay and I set out to play a 50pt game.  Jay had said he had a pSevy list he was itching to try out so I played my Ossrum list which in a tournament would be my most likely Menoth drop.

Adepticon 2014!

We three hosts of Combo Smite went to Adepticon this past weekend… and we recorded a quick 30 minute podcast after we got back (tired, sore, over-fed and happy!).
