2019 Summary – Trollbloods

After a bunch of games (not as many as I would like), and a nice break, I can say that I still enjoy playing trolls. Breaking from the FB and forum groups was a good idea. It helped me experiment more and gripe less. All in all, Trolls are good, the game is good, and I’m looking forward to the future.

Crucible Guard vs Circle 2018-11-29

So the trick is that if I want to keep my warcaster safe from Lord of the Feast, better positioning is key. Keep all models 2” + 31mm away from your warcaster. The flip side is that in doing so, you lose the screening and other units can get in to kill your caster just as easily.

Converting Ironclads into Toros

Why on Earth? After purchasing the Crucible Guard box set, I found myself in possession of two heavy warjacks – the Suppressor and Vindicator.  I quickly purchased three heavy kits, and found myself with some decisions.  Should I magnetize, or build a specific jack with each kit?  I decided to build specific jacks.  Magnetizing is […]

Hunters Grim: Where are you?

Grim2, Where Are You? Looking at Grim2 again as a primary warlock for my Trollblood army.  I haven’t seen much of him since the beginning of 2017.  I honestly can’t be sure where he really fits.  The best luck I’ve had with him is as a direct answer to lists that depend on healing, via […]

Troll Impaler: Theory, Test, Fix

  Troll Impaler, the Model I have always liked the Impaler model.  He(?) looks brutal.  In the old days, he was much bigger than Trollkin, but now they are about as big, and a pack of Impalers could easily be confused for a unit of something wierd. The older sculpt is still my favorite.   […]

I am a Filthy Casual

Filthy Casual! To clarify the purpose of this blog, I think it needs to be stated that I play as well as any filthy casual might play. I do not win Steamrollers, do not craft highly competitive meta-breaking lists, or have every model and corresponding card memorized. That being said, I do enjoy making lists, […]

Isle of Games Steamroller with Trollbloods

I took a hiatus from Warmachine, not by choice, but because of a cross-country move.  Last week, I played my first Steamroller tourney since June.  And it feels like I was completely new to the game.  Partially due to the meta change, partially due to the length between games, partially due to the skill level […]
