Podcast 154 – Menoth Dojo Episode

So, due to the holiday this weekend we didn’t have a chance to play or record a battle for the podcast. We did, however, have a bit over an hour to sit down and discuss a few Menoth lists…

Podcast 153 – Menoth (Harbinger) vs Circle (Baldur2)

Everyone who listens to the podcast knows I’ve been pretty sad about the changes to Harbinger. But I loves her… she was 30% of the reason I started playing WarMachine, and 85% of the reason I started playing Menoth after Cygnar.

That’s just science, folks.

But is she still any good… let’s all find out!

Podcast 111 – Ontario Team Championships Wrap Up – Arcane Assisted!

It’s that time of year again, folks… the Ontario Team Championships have come and gone. Nick and I managed to rope the two hosts of Arcane Assist into helping out with one of our teams this year, and it was an incredibly fun time!

Tournament Report 003: Marc’s Results in Hardcore with Menoth

On Saturday it was time for a field trip to the Hobby Kingdom in Burlington, Ontario. After a few stumbles (turns out Tim can’t give directions to his home in Hamilton to be picked up… alternatively, why in 9 Hells does Hamilton have FIVE East Streets? And why are 2 of them called “East Street North” and “East Street South”… how does an EAST street have a North and South?! Ridiculous!), I arrived, ready to play my first ever 50pt Hardcore Tournament! The excitment was palatable! Palpable! Palpatine! P-Words!

Battle 032 – 50pts Menoth vs Skorne, Harby vs eXerxis: Couldn’t Find a Rhino, so Rode a Hyperion!

Kassem has been excited to try out the new Skorne warlock… and since he doesn’t own the model yet, that meant proxy-time! Thankfully he has something that will work almost as well…

Yes, he had Xerxis riding his armless Hyperion. From a fluff-standpoint, it actually kinda makes sense… well, as much sense as anything Kassem does…

Podcast 038 – Menoth Vs. Mercs – Harby Vs. Gorten – Hardcore is like Camping

In a few weeks, a couple of the Combo Smite hosts (myself included) are heading down to Burlington, Ontario for a 50pt Hardcore tournament. As a result, I was happy to get some practice in with Nick for this unique (and fascinating!) format!title

This is Nick’s first time playing a Hardcore game, *and* his first time trying out this particular list… this is my 2nd attempt at Hardcore, but the 3rd time I’ve used this list (or one similar to it, at least!)… sad that numbers like those make me the most experienced out of our group! The game was a little bit gong-showy, but as a practice game it was pretty solid, and I think there’s unquestionably a lot to learn from our attempts!

Podcast 023 – Menoth vs Circle, Harbinger vs eKrueger: Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires!

This week we played some preparation games for an upcoming tournament being held in Southern Ontario (named, perhaps not coincidentally, the “Southern Ontario Open”).

The tournament itself is a qualifier for the Canadian World WarMachine Tournament team… but we’re not competing in that portion of the tournament. No, we humble Combo Smite hosts will be competing in the “Youngbloods” portion of the tournament… a 32-man, 35 point two list event.

In the random draw we played, I ended up facing off against Gaven and his forces of the Circle Oroboros (did I add too many “o”s to that name? Whatev’…). Gaven was rocking an eKrueger and an eMorvahna list… while I was hoping to get some practice with my eFeora list (which I am still less comfortable with than I am the Harbinger…) the clutch-piece of that list is the fire-spawning-missiles of the Redeemer… which is enormously less effective against eKrueger.

Give the podcast a listen, and/or read on to see how the battle worked out!

Battle 009 – Menoth vs Cryx, Harbinger vs pDenny. "Whoops".

It was my turn to go through the meat-grinder of our resident Cryx player, Adam, this week. I say that only because Adam has an undefeated 9 game streak going on so far this year… it’s my turn to see if my Menoth can fare any better than the Circle, Khador, Retribution, and Skorne have thus far.DSC02823

I’m thinking “yes”. Continue reading
