• Borka2 vs Morghoul2

    Bearka Mk3v2 I’m looking for a good balance to Calandra, and being unsure as to whether I want to run her with Champions or Kriel Company, it’s difficult deciding how I want to run his army. Obviously, I want to be able to capitalize on his feat.  I also want a battlegroup that will push Borka’s innate awesomeness even further.

  • Calandra five games in

    I’m in five games with Calandra.  She’s different from what I’m used to playing, that is certain. I think she works well with minions.  Star Crossed helps her whole army.  Bullet Dodger helps the defense skew.  It isn’t as good as Even Ground (Madrak 1), but what is?  Bullet Dodger suffers from upkeep hate, and only affects one unit/model, doesn’ prevent knockdown, but does allow for a 2″ move. The experiment was to run her with Champions, to hit DEF 16 in melee, while base to base, and screen with warriors.  Bullet Dodger runs on the front line, until a

  • Calandra vs Goreshade3

    First outing The last game, with Gunnbjorn, combined with all the Madrak1 love had me thinking about my lists, caster synergy, and weaknesses in Gunnbjorn’s army. Gunnbjorn messes with ranged armies for a turn, but outside of that, doesn’t help his melee troops.  He also does absolutely nothing for minions.  I think he’ll do okay with the Sea King, but not in Band of Heroes. Calandra’s List I decided to test out the Champions, figuring a high defense unit would benefit from Bullet Dodger.  The Highwaymen might be cute here as well, but I feel the need to run Band

  • Gunnbjorn vs The Heretic

    Overview This is a battle in which I made one major error, and should have lost the game.  My opponent played well, making a strong assassination bid.  He had a 92% chance of success, but Gunnbjorn somehow survived assassination and squeaked out a win. Set up Scenario Breakdown!  No fancy stuff here.  Difficult to jump way ahead on scenario.  Two circles and a rectangle for scoring.  My strategy was to flood the rectangle and right circle with kriel warriors, and walk Gunny’s battlegroup up the center. Terrain Quadrant method (dividing the table into fourths,  and placing 4 pieces, 1 in

  • Gunnbjorn vs Bloody Barnabas

    Overview A difficult battle for my semi-ranged army, made more difficult by not using Gunnbjorn’s feat.  Here is another example of how not to play Warmachine.

  • Borka2 vs The Heretic

    Last night’s game was a grind.  I ran Borka2 into Grymkin.  Normally, I would run Band of Heroes, due to Grymkin units coming back.  Playing into them has felt like an uphill battle each time, though I only have three games under my belt, so I still lack experience.

  • No Quarter Prime 1: Urban Ambush pt2

    Last night, I was able to run the No Quarter Prime scenario: Urban Ambush. It was different.  The supplier side definitely has an advantage.  Fitting a Warjack or Warbeast in the ambush list is difficult and costly.  Although the rules state no cavalry, it says nothing about battle engines.  Lastly, it can be difficult for somed factions to bring something to handle both armor and dudespam and incorporeal… all strategies for the supply team. Setup Instructions for setup are easy.  We used one of the crumbling buildings, because I have a paper house that fits inside a rubble piece. The
