Tournament 005 – 50pt Steamroller at Meeplemart – Marc’s Results with Menoth

On Saturday, Nick and I attended a Steamroller Tournament in Toronto at the sublime Meeplemart. Great store! Long drive, but completely worth it!

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”.

Podcast 040 – Menoth vs Menoth, Vindictus vs Kreoss3: Who’s the Idiot that Gave Marc the Camera?

Seriously. Some of the pictures from this report are *awful*…

They’re not going to get much better than that one, folks… sorry about this! I blame Nick… he handed me an extremely powerful and sensitive camera, and I treated it like a point-and-click device… which it is definitely not. Thankfully we managed to salvage a bunch of good pictures out of the mess!

Battle 033: Menoth vs Retribution, Vindictus vs Issyria: Turians vs Asari!

Okay, so *maybe* I just bought Mass Effect 3 and have been playing it for the first time… great game (much tighter than 1, way less restrictive than 2), and despite knowing how awful (AWFUL-awful) the ending is, I’m enjoying it so far! And both the names “Vindictus” and “Issyria” sound like they were snipped straight from the game… but I digress!

At the behest of the greater Combo Smite community, Ozzie has decided to pull out his Retribution again so that we can get a batrep with the angry elves in it! He’s a trooper.

Also, he really wanted to play Issyria because she came out after he switched over to Legion. So there was that too.

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!
