• Road to Texicon, Ragnor test, v2

    Things don’t always work.  In last night’s test game, things didn’t work. I played into a merc list.

  • Road to Texicon ’17 Madrak 3, V3

    I’m still thinking Madrak 3 should by my primary list.  Last weekend I had a 2v2 Khador/Trollblood vs Cryx/Skorne with a few guys at one of the LGS.  We ended up splitting the space so that I could face off with the Cryx army, who placed most of their forces opposite me, except for a unit of ghost pirates who took the flank on the other side of the Skorne forces.   During the game, the Mauler ends up doing hardly anything.  It kills ooff a light jack in like one hit, without even having Rage running.  I suppose it

  • Jarl Skuld into Khador

    Jarl may have the ability to stop some ranged attacks and even hold back a charge with his smoke cloud feat, but I have trouble when dealing with Khador after the stall. In this version of Jarl, I try out the Bomber, and leave most of the POD list intact.

  • More Jarl Skuld

    Jarl the Impaler I’ve been arguing the merit of the Impaler. Is it worth its points? Should you take it or the Bomber?  What the heck is the Impaler used for? On that note, for my first game in a month, I decided to load up with lots of Impalers in a list and see what they can do with minimal warlock involvement.

  • Beth’s E-Leap of Faith vs Menoth’s Amon Ad-Raza

    Beth’s first outing with her new crew found her in a strange town surrounded by Menoth.  Was this a real battle, or another flashback brought on by the trauma of her imprisonment? The scenario was Take and Hold. Amon was running two Castigators, a Vigilant and a couple Dirvishes. He had a choir, a couple monks, Daughters of the Flame, and a wrack.   Menoth won initiative. I ended up going first. Boo! I  decided to go for the enemy flag. A wall and hill were nearby.  I placed my guard on my 7″ line, backed them up with the

  • Cygnar vs Retribution (25 point)

    Visitor: My opponent, who goes by SkorneFlakes on the Privateer Press forum, ran the 25 point Retribution army offered by Privateer Press during their 2015 Christmas sale.
