• Sloan1 vs Makeda1

    Gun Mages vs anti-gun Sometimes I ask myself why I am such a glutton for punishment.   Let’s take a bunch of POW 10 gun’s into battle against an army known for its armor.

  • Kara Sloan and Gun Mages

    Captain Kara Sloan. Her name summons nightmare visions of a wall of Hunters, threatening your caster on turn 1.  I guess that’s a way to play her, but I can’t see it being very successful.  I am pretty sure most factions have a way to handle the gun line, and with terrain being what it is, there should be fewer LOS opportunities for Kara to exploit. She is dangerous. Her weapon of choice, a Magelock rifle named Spitfire, hits from 14″ and does a POW 12 with 3 dice of damage.  Sloan can boost the damage roll, for 4d6 at

  • Haley 2 vs Rasheth

    I apologize. I’ve been playing a lot of Trollbloods this year, so it’s easy to forget my first faction was Cygnar.  A local Skorne player decided he had a good list to throw into Warmachine, and asked if I could play my Cygnar.  I did, and now I feel dirty. Tricks are for… Warmachine? Major Victoria Haley, and even her other incarnations are so full of tricks that can make a game seem downright unfair.  Even a terrain heavy environment doesn’t seem to impair her ability to run the battlefield.  Thing is, I feel like Warmachine factions are the most

  • Borka2 vs Haley2, 35ish points

    I convinced my teenaged daughter to play a little war machine last week.  She likes the electrically charged Cygnar Storm Callers.  They remind her of the “Girl Genius” comic.  So I explained Haley’s powers as a spark and showed her the Storm Strider with the callers and their crazy hair.

  • Sloane vs Amon

    This game was over fairly quickly. Amon was able to dominate a zone and control the other uncontested. I didn’t move Kara’s battlegroup down field quickly enough. Coupled with me forgetting what turn it was after a conversation, I practically handed him the game. I really dont have much to say. Amon did everything right. Challenged my rangers with his units, blocked range fire with his heavies and cover jack, and owned the zones.

  • Sloane vs Kaya 1

    I wanted to run a jack heavy list. Kara Sloane took her troop of jacks and a couple of Gun Mage Captain Adepts along with a Rifleman. A good group, with lots of bullets. We were playing with two objectives and two flags… Extraction. Killbox was up. I dont know how I feel about Killbox with Kara. On one hand, it forces casters into shooting range. On the other hand, kara is also in danger. I didnt get many pictures at the start. Also, missing Kaya’s list. The game was too quick, with Kaya stepping into range of everything. I
