Team Combo Smite consisted of: Marc (Cygnar), Nick (legion), Kassem (Skorne), Adam (Cryx) and Darrell (Menoth). We made a good showing and our team went 3-1 and took 5th place.

On the Subject of Pain(t)

So since – I don’t know… the spring? – I’ve been working on the Skorne colossal, the Mammoth. If any of you out there are considering playing or already play Skorne and have thoughts of picking up the Mammoth, may I suggest these very simple steps for painting it: 1) immediately regret it. 2) cry. 3) more regret. It’s not that the model is bad or poorly sculpted, in this particular instance I offered to paint the model; one which I could not actually play as it’s a different faction. The owner of said Mammoth, the infamous Kassem, even offered to pay for the paint which I would use but I refused; a decision I would later realise was the only thing that would have kept me in the green.

I liken painting the Mammoth to offering to take a cursed monkey’s hand off a friend: they would obviously agree but when they try to explain the curse, you dismiss them waving your hand saying, “Yeah, yeah, yeah I know what a cursed monkey’s hand is.” But oh no. No you don’t. Not yet.

Podcast 020 – Retribution Vs. Skorne – Don't Take My Word for it.

This week I am matched up against Kassem who is playing his Skorne.  We both make 2 lists that we were working on for an upcoming tournament…

I brought a Tier 4 eVyros list with Lots of Griffons and Destors and a Ravyn list that I wanted to try out against his Skorne to see how it handled the armour.

Ravyn
*Hyperion
Max HG Halberdiers + UA
Max HG Riflemen + UA
Min MHSF + UA
HG Thane
Arcanist
Aiyanna & Holt

The idea behind this list is I get bunch of high-power shots in with Hyperion and CRAs with the Riflemen

His lists were a Xerxis brick list and a Makeda3 list:

Makeda + The Exhalted Court
*Mammoth
*Cyclops Raider
*Molik Karn
*Gladiator
Max Beast Handlers
Tyrant Commander and Standard
