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.
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… Continue reading Converting Ironclads into Toros
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… Continue reading Hunters Grim: Where are you?
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. … Continue reading Troll Impaler: Theory, Test, Fix
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,… Continue reading I am a Filthy Casual
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… Continue reading Isle of Games Steamroller with Trollbloods
Gunnbjorn in Northkin, Two Battles in Tucson For my first game night in Tucson, Arizona, I felt the need to rely on familiarities and so chose Trollbloods as my faction. Originally, Jarl Skuld sought to pilot the Northkin army, but Calandra and even Borka on his bear made the rounds. A conversation on Facebook about… Continue reading Gunny in Northkin vs Protectorate & Grymkin
Runeshaper Hate? Honestly, I’ve had some recent successes with Runeshapers. They have game-play, but don’t seem much play in big games. Lack of showing in big tournaments The Trollblood community seems to hate running Trollkin Runeshapers. According to Discount Games Inc, the Runeshapers haven’t been played in any major tournament by a top tier player… Continue reading The much maligned Trollkin Runeshapers
I’ve recently started experimenting with Borka 2. He looks like a terror. His mount is a polar bear, because he’s that awesome. With his countercharge spell, and freezing feat, Borka begs for a large Battlegroup. Unfortunately, he needs to drag along fury management to keep his battlegroup under control. For all of his aggressiveness, Borka… Continue reading Borka 2
