The Treeline

Colm Green wiped another drop of the incessant rain from the tip of his nose and shifted his heavy shoulder plates trying to get more comfortable. “No use” he muttered to himself as he looked over to Riggers who appeared to be unfazed by the down pour.

“You keep messin’ round like that and you’ll end up with a Widow Maker’s bullet between the eyes.”

The two trenchers sat in the rain watching the darkness that was the southern tip of the Thornwood. They were dug in no more than a hundred paces from the tree line, keeping watch over the hastily erected Cygnarian encampment behind them. The ground between their position and the treeline was littered with rocky out crops and felled trees, making sentry duty particularly difficult.

Colm was certain that something was out there, a flicker movement out of the corner of his eye or the sound of rustling trees, he was on edge and he knew it was getting to Riggers.

“Hey, Green, you wanna’ smoke” Colm looked at the soggy packet of cigarettes being offered by his grizzled comrade.

Shaking his head Colm denied the offer “They’ll kill you, you know that don’t you?”

Mkii and me.

So a little over a month ago Privateer Press posted up the “pre proof read” rules and cards for Warmachine Mkii. If you haven’t downloaded them yet, which I’m sure you have, follow this link and get them!

I would just like to start by commending PP on their excellent move in posting the rules up a full three months before their official release. If only some other companies would follow suit i’m sure the world would be a better place. Nudge nugde, hint hint.

Now I have been pouring over the new rules and stat cards for some time and just haven’t managed to get a game in, for just over a month. Last night however my wife was out on the town so I took the oppurtunity to log onto Vassal and try my hand at Mkii.

With the help of the ever gracious Mutton, Vassal users will know him well, I got my first games of Mkii. We played a two games one with battle boxes and one at 35 points. The results of the games are in-significant, not because I lost them both, honest. Key points in the larger game however were both Beast-09 & a Spriggan being wrecked in one turn and eSorscha wiffing an assination run on Reznik.

Any how I’m looking to play a few more games with the eSorscha list that I put together and once i’m a bit more familiar with how it works I might post up a few battle reports.

If anybody is interested the list is as follows.

Forward Kommander Sorscha
Beast 09
Spriggan
War Dog

4 Battle Mechaniks
Widowmakers
Winter Guard Field Gun
10 Winter Guard Infantry
Winter Guard Officer & Standard
3 Winter Guard Rockateers

As you can see this is a fairly themed list, no prizes for getting the theme!

It did ok but I was let down by my lack of knowledge of a lot of this stuff. Lets see how it does as I learn the list a bit more.

Thanks to any and all who are reading and I’ll try and get some more posts up soon.
