Battle Report – Sevy2 vs Thryon, Ridiculous List Ho!

Hello! My, it’s been awhile since we’ve done a battle report (episode 153, for those of you keeping count), and it’s been far, far longer since I’ve actually WRITTEN a battle report, rather than just talked about it.

But, at some gentle torture from Nick, I decided to give it a whirl. Because, really, I do love writing up batreps, and it’s been a long time… so without further ado…

Actually, one more thing: I miss Aaron. That guy took the absolute best pictures, and it made doing the write-ups an absolute joy. Sure, I miss Aaron for other reasons (I don’t get to see him much, since I’m only ever in London for WarMachine and he doesn’t play much any more), but his pictures were top notch.

Okay, on with the batrep!

Podcast 145 – Retribution Tournament Analysis!

What a time to be alive, folks. Kassem is recording his own podcasts, discussing lists and strategy for Skorne, and I’m absolutely fascinated to hear how it turns out… but in the meantime, we still have our regular Combo Smite episodes!

This week, we jump into a full analysis of Nick’s recent tournament results with Retribution and the two lists he brought to the table. Some really weird time-warp going on here, with News and Announcements and New Zealand and all sorts of stuff, but hopefully everyone enjoys it!

Podcast 120 – Retribution of Scyrah Review, Slightly Delayed

Hey folks! Good news, bad news… good news is that Nick and I spent 4 hours today recording a complete Retribroken of Scyrah review, just like we did for Cygnar! Yay!

Bad news is that my recording software decided that it was simply TOO AWESOME to ever be released, and completely crapped out without any indication. Since this is the 2nd podcast we’ve lost in 4 attempts, old software is gone and I’m going to be using some new program from now on. Or programme. Whichever.

Tournament Video – Store Wars 2015 – Hobby Kingdom #2

Store-Wars-Season-2-v2Marc and I were present for the Second tournament in the Store Wars circuit at Hobby Kingdom which also happened to be the last tournament in the Store Wars circuit for 2015.

I set a goal for myself to qualify for the 16 man invitational this year that I have failed to meet.  Unfortunately, life happens and I didn’t make it out for as many events as I’d hoped I would. Marc still has a good chance to make it though. Especially with his impressive 3-1 finish at his event. Continue reading

Podcast 071 – Cygnar (Siege) vs Retribution (Ravyn Tier1): Our Arrows Will Blot Out the Sun

Ah, Ravyn Tier 1. Basically an excuse to run 2 full units of MHSF with their incredible UA. But will it be enough against the 2nd tankiest warcaster in Cygnar?

I mean, Nick has a chart of how many MHSF are needed to kill warcasters as a function of their DEF/ARM… can Siege stand up to 22 boosted attack roll POW10s? Only one way to find out, folks… listen to the ‘cast!
