Time for a change.

Well with the “big” competetive event of the year out of the way I am yearning for a bit of a change.  Since the release of Mkii I have only played with my Khador and now I fancy something different.

Now I could look at another Warmachine faction, after all I do have some Cygnar, Menoth and Retribution. However I fancy something a bit more drastic, as such I am going to start playing Hordes!

As with Warmachine I have bits for a few factions – Trolls, Circle and Skorne. My Decision on what to play is purley driven by what I own most of…

Skorne!

Now I own pretty much everything that has been released for Skorne but none of it is painted, and only a little more is built. So What to paint first? Well that’s up to you…

I will leave the poll open for the rest of the week, until 12 Midnight (BST) on Friday 11th June.

Let me know what you think I should paint!

A 50 point battle report…

Well, I was going to try to give this report a fluffy name but after trying to think of a something I came up blank. As such welcome to the first of, hopefully, many battle reports.

My good buddy, and player of a delightfully pink Menoth army, Neal had a 50 point game on Tuesday night, and here’s how it went down.

Oh my! Forces of Warmachine: Khador.

Forces of Warmachine: Khador

Thats right Privateer Press have just posted up a preview to the cover of the new Forces of Warmachine book.

The art work, as I’m sure you will agree is pretty sweet looking.

Here’s what PP have to say…

For the Empress and the Motherland
In the cold north of western Immoren lies the mighty Khadoran Empire, whose massive military epitomizes the national ideals of strength and resilience. Legions of Winter Guard march at the call of the empress, bent on conquest of the entire Iron Kingdoms. Led by powerful warcasters as unrelenting as the Khadoran winter and backed by elite soldiers such as the disciplined Iron Fang Pikemen and the imposing Man-O-War troopers who stride into battle in great steam-powered suits of armor, the army of Khador is ready to crush all who stand against them.

Looks like the Khador we all know and love!

I have been neglecting this blog a little recently, well a lot really, truth be told I have been struggling with motivation. Mark my words however come next week I will be back in the grove and, hopefully, will be able to start adding more updates!

Back in black

Hi there

Another Tuesday, another night at the club, only this time I managed a game.

Their weren’t too many of us down this week but one of the regulars, Andy, had brought some of his Cygnar with him.

He had…

Stryker
2 Chargers (well one was actually a Lancer but we proxied it so we could have a 15 pt game)
Ironclad
6 Gun Mages

I took…

Butcher
Juggernaut
10 Winter Guard
Winter Guard Officer and Standard
3 Rockateers
Kovnik Jozef

A Challenge

So, as you can probably tell, this whole blogging thing is fairly new to me.

After telling one of my buddies about the blog he suggested that I “need to set targets” and “review how I did.”

So here I am about to set a target for myself.

Over the next few months I want to make some serious in roads into the ammount of my Khador stuff that is un-painted.

I would love to make the pledge to paint something every day. However I have a wife and two kids at home so that isn’t going to be a possibility. I think that four out of seven nights is achievable though.

I’m going to start with a slight modification on the army list from my previous post which will be henceforth known as, wait for it, My Mkii Army!

Catchy eh!

Any who the army is as follows.

Forward Kommander Sorscha
Beast-09
Spriggan
War Dog

10 Winter Guard Infatry
Winter Guard Officer & Standard
3 Winter Guard Rockateers
Winter Guard Field Gun Crew
4 Battle Mechaniks
Kovnik Jozef Grigorovich
Manhunter

None of the above is painted and very little of it is assembled. On the desk at the moment are the Winter Guard. Jozef is based and the rest need basing then they will be sprayed.

Watch this space and there should be some progress soon.

Thanks for reading.

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.
