• Calandra1 vs Maelok1

    I feel privileged to have played into a Top Level Warmachine player at the Steamroller last weekend.  I won’t name drop, but will say that even though it was an uphill game into someone with much more practice than me, it was still a very pleasant game.  Although it was a loss on paper, it was a win for me. I’m still struggling with pairings and list selection.  I probably should have stuck with my original Calandra/Borka plan, but wound up sticking Madrak2 in as Calandra’s battle buddy.  Reason being was that I figured weapon master Raiders could be neat,

  • Calandra vs Scaverous

    The local Cryx guy is testing new warcasters,  and today’s Dragon Father representative is the Lord Exhumator Scaverous.  I won’t claim my recent experiments with Calandra are influencing my group, but I do find it coincidental that three of us are all messing with dice manipulating casters.

  • Calandra vs Wanderer

    Bottom lines It’s funny how a mis-read feat (or trump) can ruin a game. Time is a required win option when playing Star-Crossed vs Star-Crossed. I need to work on keeping cool when a plan falls flat. I need to work on not getting excited, and forgetting to do step 1 of the plan before step 2 (you can’t attack with ambush units unless you place them during maintenance,  duh!).

    Borka2 & Double Long Riders The idea of two cavalry units in an army is not new.  Some armies and factions love double cavalry.  The question I’ve been tossing around lately is whether Trollbloods have an effective double cavalry army waiting to be unlocked. Since I am primarily a Mk3 player, I don’t have much in the way of experience from which to draw. So off to the internet!  Problem is… there isnt much out there on running double long riders.  And to make matters worse, most of the info out there is based on the mk2 version of cavalry.
