Podcast 159 – Who Ya Gonna Call… Ossyan!

This week, Combo Smite is talking Ghost Fleet… specifically, Ghost-Fleet-Busting… and Nick is gonna spend some time discussing Retribution-centric tactics.

A lot of this is Nick Theory-crafting, but hopefully you guys will find it useful.
Next week we’re going to talk Errants vs Idrians (I’ve already run some preliminary experiments… and the results may be click bait!), but for now, let us know what you think about his tech!

Do let us know what we got wrong! Menoth is coming up next week! Because, obviously, spending over 10 hours recording and editing a podcast in a week is a totally reasonable thing for me to do! ^_^

(We really are going to try and keep them under 4 hours from now on… this is getting a little ridiculous!)

Podcast 115 – Southern Ontario Open Wrap Up!

Nick, Darrell, Aaron, Kassem, and I headed down to Hamilton, Ontario for the “Southern Ontario Open” again this year! This is probably the best WarMachine tournament any of us have ever attended, and Saturday night after the Masters qualifiers, we sat down and recorded our experiences!

Podcast 110 – Active Duty Roster and Specialist Discussion, Part One

Time for a bit of a change of pace, folks! Instead of doing a battle report this week, we’d thought it would be informative and useful to talk a bit about the Masters format, and specifically the Active Duty Roster and Specialists that it grants!

Battle Report Podcast 088: eVyros (Not-Darrell) vs Amon Ad-Raza (Not-Todd) – How much jack would a warjack jack if a warjack could jack jack?

eVyrosVsAmonHello again wonderful readers!  We’ve got something different for you this time around.  We’ve been doing a lot of tournament battle reports, serious list reflection and a lot of competitive play.  For this report then we decided that we needed some serious stress relief, and what better way to relieve stress than with a jack off?  Wait a minute, that didn’t come out right…

Youngbloods Tournament Battle Report – Scyrah’s Perspective

Last weekend we traveled down the road to Hamilton today to compete in the Youngbloods tournament taking place alongside the Southern Ontario Open Master’s tournament as you may have heard about in our last podcast.  Apparently this was the largest Warmachine tournament ever held in Canada at 88 participants.  Pretty impressive.IMG_3154

We, however were entered in the Youngbloods, which is a smaller scale 35 pt tournament targeted more at newer players, which may not accurately describe us but we are still bad enough that we fit in just fine. It was only 14 players which is significantly less than 88 but still the largest tournament I or any of the Combosmite crew have participated in. Continue reading

Podcast 025 – Menoth vs Retribution, eFeora vs eVyros: Charge of the Light Myrmidon!

Just so that everybody knows, the urge to call this battle report “Griffon-dor versus Fire-puff” was almost overwhelming…(NG:  I’m so glad you didn’t)

This week saw Nick’s forces of the Retribution going up against my Menite troops in another 35 point preparation game for the upcoming Youngbloods tournament (which is happening this upcoming Saturday, May 24th!). Nick was concerned that one of my lists (specifically my Harbinger list) was basically unbeatable by one of his lists due to the inclusion (currently) of 2 Paladins of the Wall and Vilmon. This gave me a pod of 3 troops that could be immune to everything Vyros had except for Vyros himself, and the gun on the Sphinx he was bringing… and since Harby can just martyr those guys in the unfortunate situation that they actually die, it would be an enormously uphill battle. So he politely asked me to take my Feora list against him, and I, being a gentleman, happily obliged.

(Don’t tell Nick, but I wanted to practice my Feora list anyway!)

A quick apology for the audio quality: Nick, Aaron, and I all came down with a serious case of the sniffles for this week’s podcast, so you’re going to hear some sniffing, some coughing, and one rather explosive case of me blowing my nose on the air. Additionally, there’s a weird “thub-thub-thub” sound that crops up occasionally that I have absolutely NO idea where it’s coming from, nor how to fix it. I’m going to work on it… anyway, hopefully not too distracting! Enjoy the show (and remember to toss a review for us on iTunes if you have a moment! Small podcasts like ours live or die by people taking a few moments to give us a good review!)

Battle 005 – 2 Battle Reports, Retribution Vs. Menoth

This week I met up with Marc to play a couple of 25pt games in lieu of 1 bigger game.  He wanted to try out his shiney new Menoth stuff and I’m always down for a game.

For our first game he brought his Harbinger heavy spam tier list and I brought eVyros and as many griffons as I could fit in a 25 point list. So many in fact that I didn’t have enough griffons to represent them all.

His list was:

Harbinger
*Crusader
*Crusader
*Crusader
Min Choir
Avatar of Menoth
Vilmon

My list was:

eVyros
*Griffon x 7
Arcanist x 2

Marc won the die roll and chose 1st turn. The scenario ,since we were just playing 25 pt games, was just a 12″ circle in the middle of the board. 1pt to control 2 to dominate.  In retrospect we could have just played Supply and Demand but we played this so whatever.
