A Calculated Approach

A Calculated Approach

So I attended the Michigan Warmachine Grand Tournament Masters this past weekend, which was a great experience overall. Because it had a painting requirement, I was more limited in my selection of army than I would like to be. I had the most (and most effective) painted models within my Convergence of Cyriss force. So with the completion of a second Transfinite Emergence Projector I was ready to go. You can see the fully painted forces on my tray in the photo above!

Transfinite Emergence Projector Convergence of Cyriss

This Transfinite Emergence Projector (TEP) got my Convergence of Cyriss force to hit two fully-painted lists. I like this paint scheme still a great deal when it’s done, even if it isn’t particularly fun to paint itself in the process. 

Unfortunately, Convergence is not where my game repetitions were located. Which led me to not the best results at the event. I didn’t do terribly, but I also didn’t set the world on fire. Overall I went 1-2, and blame myself and not understanding where my matchup strengths would have been with my lists.

1 Convergence of Cyriss Orion vs Cygnar Stryker 2

First round I faced a Isaiah Thompson, from the Detroit-area meta. He fielded Stryker2 from Cygnar, and I dropped Orion with Prime Axiom. It was probably the wrong choice on my part, and a miscalculation–but I also wanted to see what Orion could do. Answer: not much. The prime had a good kill of Ole’ Rowdy, but other than that the Stormlances were just too much pressure to handle. I still nearly killed Stryker2 after his Feat turn, but the dice didn’t go my way. Honestly tho, there were lots of decision points that could have made it so I didn’t need to rely on dice. A fun opponent but a loss for me. 

2 Convergence of Cyriss Orion vs Khador Vlad2

Second game was against Adam M. from the Buffalo meta. He and I have actually played before in a tourney in Rochester, which was fun. He dropped Vlad2 Armored Corps. I should have dropped Lucant, but again felt like I could learn some with Orion (and was already out of the running with a round one loss). What I learned is that Orion was even worse into this match-up. I managed to keep the game to seven rounds and score enough points to stay in it, but it was just a losing effort the whole way. Orion doesn’t have the oomph to handle heavier armored infantry, and his stuff cannot take the punch either. Was a good game, as he’s a great player and a fun guy to chat with, but again a pretty hefty loss for me. 

3 Convergence of Cyriss Lucant vs Cygnar Caine2

Third game was against Tom Dryfuse, a nice guy from the Flint meta. He dropped Caine2 into my Lucant. It was a tough match-up for him, and while he finally finished off the two TEPs that were causing him serious grief, I managed to get the scenario win by that point. This game was a really good learning game in lots of ways for me–in particular that while Lucant is strong with two TEPs, I fear that my interest in playing a caster who does a lot more–is more dynamic–is what balances my decision to play him sometimes. 

All told it was a good learning experience. I played some good games against fun opponents, and I thought pretty hard about my own lists (even while making some mistakes with them). I emerged from it realizing that I need to select dynamic casters for my pairing, and have a real PAIR to play with–not some feeble strategy of a scary list designed to push other sorts of lists into it. I need to stop building answers and start asking questions to move to the next level. So that’s my goal.

Practice (and Painting) Makes Perfect

Practice (and Painting) Makes Perfect

So I’m prepping for the Michigan GT in mid-October, which requires some practice with lists and also both lists to be fully painted. And while I’m making decent progress on painting my Skorne (see below), I am worried that I won’t have two viable lists. Playing both lists as Immortals seems like it would really limit my options, so it was time to dig out a faction that I haven’t played in quite some time–not since the America’s Team Championship in January: Convergence of Cyriss. I thought I would get in a couple of practice games with them just to knock the rust off, in case I wanted to bring a group with more options (and fewer items I need to complete painting to field).

But first, as always, painting:

1 Skorne Immortals Jade Color Scheme

Finished up a third unit of Skorne Immortals. These have some more special bases, and I’m really pleased with the jade scheme. Turned out quite effective as the scenic bases add that little touch. Going to mix these guys in with my other units to spread out the look (and maybe eventually decor-up some of those bases). 

Skorne Extoller Advocate

Also finished an Extoller Advocate to go with the unit. These guys are neat, and I had fun doing the glowing eye. Picture doesn’t quite have the right focus to show it, but I’m pleased at least. 

1 Convergence Orion vs Khador Vlad1

First game with Convergence was exactly like riding a bicycle. Yes, I had the knack but I was still pretty wobbly. Faced off against Andy’s Khador, led by Vlad1. That makes three different Vlad1 games in about the last five outings. It was a good clash, and I managed to win on scenario with Orion. 

1 Convergence Locke vs Mercenaries Ossrum

Second game was with Locke, taking on Larry’s Ossrum Mercenaries list. Not only is the Ossrum list super-solid, and Larry a great player, but I was tripping all over myself with this warcaster as I played this match. Locke has a deceptive number of moving parts in her playstyle–which will be super fun to unlock, but meant that the first outing was a bit of a disaster. Needless to say I lost this one. 

1 Convergence Axis vs Retribution Vyros2

Third game was with Axis vs Pat’s Vyros2 list. I made a key mistake with one servitor’s positioning, which led to having a bit too much loss on my side. So I had to go for an assassination–that was pretty likely, until my dice decided to be outside the curve. While I ended up losing, it was a fun game, and it definitely showed me the power that Axis can have in scenario play.

I’m still not sure if I’m going to take Convergence or Skorne to the Michigan GT. The lure of playing my new Immortals lists are sure tempting, but they just may not have the depth to be effective for a strongly competitive tournament. That said, I’m definitely still rusty with the Convergence–and that has me questioning taking them to a big tournament as well. Plus they don’t have good answers for one of the boogeymen lists of the meta right now (Primal Terrors)–which doesn’t excite me.

So. Much. Pain.

So. Much. Pain.

Ah, experimenting with new Warlocks. The pain of losing a lot as you get used to them, and the pain of winning ugly when you do win. It’s just like Skorne as a faction.

But first up, I finished another model: the Supreme Guardian.

Skorne Supreme Guardian

This was a great model to build, love putting him into my list. I chose to make him just a bit deeper green than the smaller ones, to represent the jade being a bit thicker. Pretty pleased how it turned out. 

On the gaming side, I continued to try out a lot of different Warlocks in different ways. I’m trying to settle in on a smaller group that works, so the practice continues.

1 Skorne Xerxis2 vs Trollbloods Kolgrima

First game was against Larry’s Trolls, running Kolgrima. I took Xerxis2 in Masters of War, as I definitely want to try running him with more infantry. Won on scenario, by being able to leverage how compact she needs to stay to be safe. 

2 Skorne Morghoul3 vs Cryx Gaspy2

Next game was with Morghoul3, trying out a Masters of War list again. Took on Ryan’s Cryx, led by Gaspy2. Won on scenario. Love the toolbox of this warlock–he definitely has some components that make him really tricky. 

Skorne Minions Morghoul2 vs Protectorate of Menoth Feora1

This game was with Morghoul2, in a Disciples of Agony structure: what I’m calling my “Fifty Shades of Pork” list (as those Paingiver Task Masters are carrying handcuffs for the Minions they’re enslaving). Faced off against Chad’s Protectorate of Menoth, led by Feora1. Prey helped a great deal in this matchup, allowing quick work to be made of the Flamebringers, and then helping against Warjacks. That caved in a side, which let me get strong scenario presence. Feora1 had a shot on my Warlock, but couldn’t land any of the sprays so I won the game on scenario. Was a good learning match for this list.

Played a second game with Morghoul2 as well, but neglected to get photos. It was again the Fifty Shades of Pork list, against Larry’s High Reclaimers with double Judicator list. I managed to get a strong scenario position via attrition, which really helped. The list does have to think carefully about where it applies force, but it’s been fun to play so far.

1 Skorne Zaal1 vs Khador Vlad1

Next up was a match versus Larry IV and his Khador. It was Vlad1 with ample rockets, versus my Zaal1 Exalted list. While that’s hardly the list I want to face with the Immortals, I got a pretty healthy scenario lead which helped me then get enough clear that the Kovaas could move in with Last Stand and assassinate Vlad1.

1 Skorne Zaal1 vs Cygnar Haley2

Followed that with another two (sorta) games with Zaal1 against Larry’s Cygnar. He had a shot at assassination early, so we decided to play it out w/ proxies then re-rack and try the game again regardless of the success or failure to see how the lists do against each other in more depth (as if he hadn’t gone for the assassination). He managed to shoot Zaal1 to death with that one. In the re-rack I fared much better in terms of surviving the onslaught, and got to the point where it was a done deal to assassinate Haley2 after attrition advantage. Was a good split (counting it as a win and a loss, as it was mostly like two games), and an approach I really was glad we did. Gives more reps with these casters, and more exposure to how games can play out. Helps each of us improve as players.

Finally had a set of games at a game day at our new local store. Played against Rob’s Skarre3 trolls-in-cryx list, and won not thanks to anything I really did so much as on clock advantage (brought Zaal1). Then faced Larry IV’s Khador a second time–again with Vlad1 rockets. I took Zaadesh2 in a really bricky list, and managed to push the raw force of the warbeasts right up to where Zaadesh could get a shot at killing Vlad himself (which he did). Third game was against Larry’s Syvestro list–my first time playing against Crucible Guard. Went about as well as you’d expect: took the wrong list into them (a Zaadesh2 brick that couldn’t handle infantry well) and wasn’t ready for some of their rules interactions. Still a fun game, and amusing to play both a father and a son on the same game day in sequence (You’ll see that my only picture of the Crucible Guard game is the one Larry took, which is sadly more me than the models). 

All-in-all a heap of games in a short amount of time. I’ve really enjoyed getting back into Skorne as a force, and it will be where I’m at for at least a while in my games.

A Tour of the Empire

A Tour of the Empire

Well, part of the new-found vigor for playing Skorne in Warmachine and Hordes comes from painting something new. I got in some games, and finished up a new Warlock for the faction–one that I think has definite potential as a force leader: Zaadesh2.

1 Zaadesh2

I’m using the Aztex bases from Dragonforge for these models too–realizing that the portions of inlay carving can be a great way to connect my color scheme with the Exalted models that I’ve done in the sort of jade look. 

I played a couple of games with my Skorne, and lost both of them. Not surprising given that it’s been over a year since I last bandied these models about the table. I definitely believe that Warmachine is a game where you plan on losing your first 20 games with a faction. So I need to lock in for the losses, so I can start to improve.

2 Skorne Zaal1 vs Mercenaries Magnus1

My first loss was vs Chad’s Magnus1 list, with Zaal1 immortals. I wanted to try them out of theme, to bring Swordsmen along, which really wasn’t as great as I hoped. The swordsmen sure hit hard, but only a couple ended up making it to my opponent’s forces because of the ranged threat. I didn’t have quite enough “oomph” to take out what I needed in the heavy Warlock list, and Immortals just weren’t survivable enough with only 20 of them. (Note in the picture I’m subbing in fire tokens for soul tokens)

3 Skorne Zaadesh2 vs Cryx Denny1

Then I had another loss in a very close battle against Justin’s Denny 1 Satyxis list, with Zaadesh2. This was a really bad matchup for me: battlegroup heavy Skorne versus 40 Satyxis and a powerful debuff caster. I managed to get to the point where I lost 2-1 on scenario at the end of 7, with each of us having under 30 seconds on our respective clocks. Was a hell of a grind. I like Zaadesh2’s play style of clouds, beasts that hit back when they’re attacked, and counter-charge threat. I need to keep exploring this Warlock more. 

I was listing to a Muse on Minis podcast about Skorne, and one of the commentators mentioned an interesting personal challenge he did when he was playing Khador: setting a goal of playing every caster in the faction at least twice. I liked that notion myself, and as I have all the Warlocks in Skorne except for two (which I’ve now ordered), I thought I would try it myself. I’m seeing this as the best way to get some depth of experience with each of the Warlocks, to start to at least conceptualize how they play on the table. Obviously more than 2 games each would be ideal–but this is the starting aim. So I’m going to, for a bit, track my game count with the various warlocks in the faction–a true tour of the Skorne empire.

Is it a Sign?

Is it a Sign?

So, Privateer Press recently did their Mystery Box promotion. They were clearing out some kits from their warehouses, and offered random deals of $240 worth of product for $60. So I, like many, took a chance on one of them. There was a guaranteed huge base model in each, and I figured it would be neat to see what they sent.

I received the Skorne box, which included a Desert Hydra, the starter box, a unit of Cataphract Arcuarii, and an unit of Cataphract Ceteratii. And I had a friend who also got Skorne with their mystery box buy, who traded me theirs for some of my Protectorate of Menoth backlog. I last played my Skorne army back in April 2017, but getting a sudden influx of models for them (even if not the most game-capable) has suddenly made me wonder if this is a sign to give them a try again.

I’ve been feeling a bit of malaise with the Legion of Everblight, which is probably pretty normal after being 56 games into the faction in this year alone. Some summer complications didn’t help, of course, but I’ve definitely noted that my passion for them has slowed a bit. I’ve been successful with Legion, but there’s just some play style bits that I’m finding don’t exactly suit my interests. So I took the boxes as an omen, and broke out the Skorne for a Champions tournament this past weekend (what better way to play a faction you’re rusty on than limited selections of warlock and theme?).

I did manage to finish two Legion painting projects in the meantime, but I am putting a Skorne piece in my queue next (even if just for a change).

Anamag the Doom Feaster

I’m pretty pleased with how Anamag turned out. I like the work I did with a dremel to make her shirtless under her robes (plus drilled the belly button). Think it gives her a good look. She’s definitely a powerful warlock, but I just don’t think I like her play style of empowering medium-based infantry. I left Trollbloods in many ways because of that problem!

Legion of Everblight Harrier

Also painted up a Harrier, to serve as a Fury battery for Anamag’s list. It plus the Blightbringer is all I’d run in her beast package. 

So taking the Mystery Box as a sign, it was time to break out the Skorne. I was definitely rusty with them, so I went with choices that I knew pretty well as a Warlock from the options: Hexeris2 and Morghoul1. I built the Hexy2 list in Imperial Warhost, as Black Spot synergizes really well with the Siege Animantarax. The other theme choice for Champions right now was Masters of War. I pretty much ignored the free cards, and ran Morghoul1 with a melee beast brick using Tiberion and getting the theme benefits. Not ideal, but worked for my purposes (ideally to scare people away from armor skews, which Hexy2 would struggle in). I ended up dropping the Hexy2 list all three times, which was pretty much what I hoped–as I felt stronger by far about that list.

Shots from the three games, clockwise from left. First round was against Charles’ Legion, using Anamag. Was pretty funny that he was using the model and faction I likely would have brought to this event. Their ability to crack armor remains very strong, and I started to lose enough models that it was time to make a play on Anamag–I was successful at delivering a Titan thru some traffic to get the job done. Second round was against Justin’s Sorscha3 leading an Armored Corps force. This time I had to play really carefully, as it was a lot of armor to face. I managed to get a good look at Sorscha3 so I took it. Knocked her down with a thrown Man-o-War, got a few spells into her from a channeling Cyclops, and then the arcing poison shot from the Aradus Sentinel ended up cranking the damage and killing her. Final game was against Pat’s Rahn list. I, as usual, played a bit wrong into Rahn. Lost two heavies in a turn when I could have lost only one, and that hurt. I managed to get ahead in points when we got down to very little left (Hexy2 himself ran up and ended the Helios). But I ran out of time trying to stall him from equalizing/gaining with what he had remaining. Was a fun game, and I’m proud of making it to the final match. 

4 Champions Bracket

We did this Champions event with a bracket system, where starting spot was decided at random. Was a fun way to do it. Makes it tense to know what’s coming down the line. 

Overall I had a fun time dropping my Skorne back onto the table after over a year of not playing them. I don’t know if I’m going to truly obey the sign provided by the random mystery box. But at least for now I’m going to get a few Skorne games in, and paint at least one Skorne model.

Remaining Un-Qualified

Remaining Un-Qualified

Recently I attended a Warmachine Weekend Qualifier up in Rochester, NY, which had a large host of players and a really competitive group of attendees. This is how my games went. I’ve been practicing and refining my lists for the event for a while, and I was moderately confident that I’d have a respectable showing at the event. Millennium Games in Rochester is a great store that hosts great events, so I knew I’d have fun if nothing else.

My pairing was a Kallus1 with Blightbringer in Primal Terrors (2 units of Warspears) list, and a Thagrosh2 Primal Terrors list with Golab–because the two of them sync so very well together. At the bottom of this post you’ll see my roster sheet with the full details of the two lists, but wanted to avoid spoilers of the action!

1 Legion Thagrosh2 vs Circle Baldur2

My first opponent was Spencer, who had a Baldur2 list and a Kaya2 list. Either way I was going to face a lot of boxes, so I had to take Thagrosh2 into him. He dropped Baldur2, and we set up for the clash. Roots of the Earth was good, but I still managed to snag three of his heavies on Feat turn. All four of my heavy hitters were in the right spots for my own Feat turn to carve my way through the rocks. I got up on scenario by holding my left flank, which meant he had to try and leverage Baldur2’s personal threat–and Golab cruised in to finish him off. Was a fun game, and it showed me the ceiling of what kind of damage Manifest Destiny plus this beast package can do (would come back to bite me later…)

2 Legion Kallus1 vs Cryx Gaspy3

Round two I faced Piotr’s Cryx force. He had a Deneghra1 Satyxis force, and an Asphyxious3 heavy warjacks list (not 9 slayers, but a lot of slayers plus an Inflictor, Seether, and Cankerworm). I was more confident about facing Satyxis than the Slayers, and took my Kallus1 list as it was going to be the better choice against either for me. Piotr dropped then Gaspy3 list, and we clashed. I got very lucky that the scenario was Spread the Net, because his battlegroup couldn’t quite stretch across all the spots they needed to be. Let me winnow down both sides of the force, while taking some pretty hairy casualties myself. The Blightbringer waited until late game as I try to, and it worked well–being a sweeper that crushed two Warjacks. He had to try an assassination run that honestly looked pretty good–managed to clear a path for the Inflictor and got it onto Kallus1 with a charge. However, the dice decided to go my way. He left Kallus1 on three boxes, and I managed to pull off an assassination myself in the following turn (was far closer than it should have been, as I forgot Murderous on the Scythean)–an incubi’s combo attack was what finally got the job done on Gaspy3. 

3 Legion Kallus1 vs Cryx Gaspy1

Round three I got paired up against Rob McCarty, another Cryx player and one of the great people from the Pittsburgh meta. Was a bummer to be 4 hours from home and face someone I see frequently, but still a good game. He had Satyxis with Asphyxious1 and all the slayers with Gaspy3, and he dropped the Stayxis. Again, I had to go with Kallus1. This time I think I fared a little better, though Satyxis gunslingers do fearsome work. I had a lot of crossing shots that happened from the Blightbringer, and that helped clear the waves of Blood Witches, while Kallus1’s nuke and the Scythean helped with the Raiders. I managed to get to a small scenario advantage, when time finally ran out on Rob’s turn. Was a great close game, against an opponent who usually beats me. It also left me as one of the four undefeated players going into the next round, against some pretty fierce competition. 

4 Legion Kallus1 vs Trollbloods Madrak1

Round four I faced Tim Banky, a member of the Canadian WTC team and one of the people behind the great Arcane Assist battle report series. He was playing Trolls, with Madrak1 and Borka2 as his drops. I expected, and got Madrak1, and accordingly had to drop Kallus1. This was my weakest game of the event probably, as I made two key mistakes. He also played an excellent game, which led to my loss. It would have been closer had I not flubbed the timing of my Feat turn (should have used it rather than waited on turn two). And I flubbed remembering a critical piece of his defensive tech: Kallus1 killed a Fennblade who had hero’s tragedy up. After that herp derp moment of him getting knocked down, it was all over but the assassination run. I did what I could to prevent it, but Madrak1 has a lot of tools (a running Dire Troll Bomber followed by Jackhammer managed to carve thru my fury and finish him off). Was a fun game against an excellent player, who showed me a side of Madrak1 I haven’t seen before. Definitely learned a lot. 

5 Legion Thagrosh2 vs Grymkin Heretic

Final game of the series was against Larry Paladin, another player from our Pittsburgh meta. He was the other player who reached round four undefeated but lost to Bubba Dalton in his game. The good news is that we could just relax and have a good game. I had a feeling I was going to see his Heretic list, which is a really nasty proposition, and I wasn’t surprised. I dropped Thagrosh2 as I needed his destructive power to carve thru all the wounds. I mentioned that round one showed me the ceiling of damage with Manifest Destiny? This one showed me the floor. My damage just wasn’t there, and at one point Thags himself had to hang out way too close to a Skin and Moans. I managed to survive, and get to a decent-ish scenario position, but I spent too much time trying to get myself out of the difficult situation left by coming up short against multiple heavies in a turn. Which led to me clocking out. Happy with some moves in the game, but overall wasn’t pleased to drop the last two at the event. 

6 Millenium Games WMW Qualifier Roster and Results

My rosters above. I’m really pleased with the Kallus1 list, though it will definitely change a bit as I get more of the Primal Terrors stuff built. I’ve got Anamag, rotwings, and a unit of Warmongers on the build table as we speak. The Thagrosh2 list is still a work in progress, as I am thinking that it would much more prefer a unit of Chosen in place of the Warspears. But I do know that Thagrosh2 plus Golab is absolutely nasty, albiet a bit streaky against high armor targets.

Millenium Games Summer 2018 Qualifier Top 10 results

This was the announcement the amazing T.O. of the event, Gail Martindale, made after the event was over showing the final rankings of the top ten. Was really pleased to make 6th place in a tournament that had so many excellent players who are renowned tournament winners. And here’s the link to every player’s lists from the event that she mentions for those who were interested in what was fielded.

Overall a great event. I remain unqualified for Warmachine Weekend, but that was likely anyhow. I’m setting my sights mainly on doing well in a few team tournaments this year, to help prepare for the America’s Team Championship in January. And despite my one-and-a-half weeks of playing Menoth, I’m still going strong with my commitment to Legion of Everblight in painting and practice. Slowly but surely the faction is coming together for me.

Unlocking the Puzzle

Unlocking the Puzzle

So this post is mostly about my new additions to my army and practice games, trying to “unlock the puzzle” of what list to pair with my Kallus1 Primal Terrors list. I really enjoy Kallus1 with the Blightbringer and Ogrun, and I think that it can play into lots of forces and do okay. I’ve been now puzzling over what to use as a second list–what does it struggle against? My problem: I think it has limits with lots of troops, and with serious armor. So this is me working out a list that can reasonably deal with both of those things. So, as always, more painting to help build things that can help vs. troops and high armor.

Legion of Everblight Angelius

First up, I finished painting my Angelius, which I think displays my scheme really well. It’s not quite as mottled in the bone as some of my others, but I think it’s equally striking as it makes it appear a bit smoother and more serpentine. Pretty much my favorite armor-cracking piece in the game lately. 

Ammok the Truthbearer Legion of Everblight Primal Terrors Blighted Ogrun

I also completed Ammok the Truthbearer–a new Blighted Ogrun model for Legion of Everblight. I definitely wanted to get him done because I see him as really useful in Primal Terrors lists. Between Rise for the other Blighted Ogrun and his ability to stop Incorporeal, he’s a lot of utility. It’s also the first Ogrun I’ve done, so a good chance to start to work out what they’ll look like when painted. 

As for games, I’ve been practicing for a big upcoming tournament in Rochester, NY. It’s a Warmachine Weekend Qualifier event that takes place over two days. I’m not holding hope for winning, as it’s supposed to be a full six rounds event (that means 64 players competing for the title). What I do want is to get more reps in with my Legion forces, to get as much experience with them as I can in higher-level play. So it’s a great event for that purpose. This week that means some last-minute games to prepare and practice lists for the tournament.

Legion of Everblight Fyanna2 vs Minions Maelok

This was my first attempt at running a more beast-heavy list with Fyanna2. My game against Larry IV’s minions had it facing Maelok and all of the gators. I did pretty well in the game to draw it into a position where I was scoring two on the right but threatening his caster enough to keep him from moving my way. I was immediately impressed by how annoying Iron Flesh can be on the Hellmouth–that swing of ARM (plus hiding it from sight) kept it alive against marauding gatormen the entire game. 

The_Lament_Configuration

My second game, against Larry Paladin’s Heretic Grymkin list, I forgot to take photos. Because Ammok did exactly as I hoped he would in the game, here’s the Hellraiser puzzle box as a stand-in photo. Wow, does he work wonders against incorporeal models. That static 10″ of removing the ability is really powerful. Plus he was one of the models that helped me score early points in the game, sitting on a flag. That said, I lost on scenario overall. I lost one beast too quickly as I had moved it to cover where Golab was going to end up, but then remembered that I needed Golab to hang back and score. Meant for a less favorable exchange. Still hung in the game a while, but it ended with a spot where he simply outstripped my ability to score points (scoring 2 to my every 1) on attrition alone. Was a good game. I’m still not convinced that Fyanna2 with beasts is better than the massed swordsmen, but they do hit far harder–and I need an armor-cracking option that she seems to fill well. 

While I really like Fyanna2 as a warlock, I felt like this list lacked ability to threaten effectively. I need something that can be trickier, I think, to pair with Kallus1. Fyanna2 and Kallus1 are both Feat turn tough choice forcers, which is nice, but it makes it somewhat similar. I wanted to find something that can bring unexpected threat to my opponent, from angles they may not be seeing–that still hits hard and buffs the Hellmouth (because an arm buff on that thing was pure punishment). I realized that Thagrosh2 may fit the bill, so he went into list ideas next. I managed to get in three games with a Thagrosh2 list that I really started to like–so that became my second list for the tournament. Some brief descriptions of the trio of games comes below (clockwise from left).

First I clashed against Ryan’s Caine2 list. While he took out the Ogrun effectively, the rest of the army managed to work pretty effectively. The combination of Carnivean and Golab is fantastic–whatever comes to get the Carnivean gets injured by spiny growth, which means that Golab gets finisher. Worked well to clear out his stuff, and Caine never got to safe place to really leverage his Feat for assassination. Next up was against Paul’s Karchev-led Khador force. The Hellmouth proved effective in forcing poor-outcome trade-offs, and once I started to get the advantage in scenario it became hard for his force to stop me. Finally, Thags2 faced Steve’s Retribution army and Helynna. I just stood back during the Feat turn, and managed to get some unexpected points that way that I leveraged to a scenario win. In each game Thagrosh2 definitely got involved in some valuable ways. P+S 18 on a warlock with Manifest Destiny is no joke. 

So I’m superstitiously nervous about the tourney, as I tend to adhere to the “bad practice, good tournament” line of thinking. I’ll need to keep on my toes during all the games if nothing else, as I’m not as familiar with the Thagrosh2 list in particular as I would like to be. Anyhow, here goes nothing!

Hellmouth

Hellmouth

Apparently that cover photo is a Hellmouth joke? Like Buffy the Vampire Slayer-related? (My nerd credentials are limited, having never seen that series).

In any case, this week I painted up a Hellmouth for my Legion army.

Legion of Everblight Hellmouth

“Om nom nom”

I also started to work on my actual bases for the Legion force, as my order of them finally arrived. The Hellmouth was a good point to start on them, as that unit is bursting out of the ground–so those had to be scratch based. Meant that I needed to experiment with the colors and form of basing with that unit. I’m relatively pleased with how it came out, and I’m definitely liking the skulls. The Aztec-themed bases will be more slate, but most have sections of dirt as well (and I’m adding skulls to them).

For comparison to the Hellmouth, I also finished a Scythean. You can see the Aztec base that came from the amazing guy at Dragonforge Design. I have a whole set of them, cannot wait!

Legion of Everblight Sythean

Front and back to show the way the bases look. They’re understated, which I like a lot. I thought about adding color or gold to them in spots. Still might go back and do that. Will have to see. 

Completing these two models also puts me over the official halfway point for yearly painting goals. Pretty good for early-to-mid May!

Gaming-wise, I brought my Legion lists to a local Steamroller at SCG Hobbies in Latrobe, ready to compete. I took my Fyanna2 Children of the Dragon list mainly because I’m comfortable with it, and my Kallus1 Primal Terrors list because I want to work on how competitive it is. My plan was to all-things-being-equal drop the Kallus1 list every round just to learn how matchups fare with Primal Terrors. Only if my opponent had a strong ranged assassination game that would be likely, or seemed particularly weak to Fyanna2’s shenanigans (lots of low MAT infantry or small number of beasts/jacks) was she going to be my choice.

Legion of Everblight Steamroller Pairing and Results May 2018

Picture could have been clearer, but these are my two lists. I’m still definitely tinkering with both, but spoiler alert: I went undefeated with them. 

1 Legion Kallus1 vs Grymkin Heretic

First round I played my Kallus1 list vs Larry’s Heretic Bump in the Night Grymkin list. The exploding barrel guys are definitely a nasty part of the list, and got a lot of work done. I only narrowly won with a clock and scenario lead. I’ve got to work on better play, as I think I got a bit chippy in this game when it was clear clock was my only win strategy. Just focus in on better play overall, and if my opponent clocks that’s fine. A lucky win against a great player is the story of this one. 

2 Legion Kallus1 vs Cryx Deneghra1

Second round was again Kallus1, this time against John P. and his Cryx force led by Deneghra1. I’ve seen John at a lot of events, but we’ve never matched up. I got two very lucky breaks, a clutch spell by Kallus1 through a Spell Martyr and the blight burst from a Forsaken managed to clear out almost all of the Satyxis on my right side. Which let me pivot in for a scenario win. I chased Denny around for a while in the middle, and she was definitely in jeopardy–but getting Dodge from one of the new Cryx support models was huge for her survival. I ended up just forcing the scenario win. 

3 Legion Fyanna2 vs Khador Strakov1

Third round was against Craig’s Khador, led by Strakov1. It was a number of Doomreavers, so I knew that my Kallus1 list simply wouldn’t fly against them. Thus, Fyanna2 took the stage. She proved to be effective enough to avoid the swarm (he just backed off on feat turn), which led to pretty heavy losses on later turns. But it was enough for me to punch a path to Strakov1, and Fyanna ended up with the killing blow. 

The tourney was capped at three rounds, and I won on tiebreaks against the other person who was also undefeated. I could have played better, but a win is a win. Was good to face some people I don’t often face, and good to see that I’m really liking my Kallus1 list.

Also had one practice game before the tourney, with my good friend Michael, fielding Borka2.

4 Legion Kallus1 vs Trollbloods Borka2

This one was a serious grind, just one of those games where both sides kept mauling each other turn after turn. Finally it got to the point where there wasn’t enough screen left and I could get Blightbringer onto Borka2. That finished him off, but it took my full stack of fury to get there. Was a fun back-and-forth game. 

Finally I got a pair of games in after the tourney, tho sadly I lost the photos when I had to replace my phone. They were a win against Kevin’s Minions Maelok list, and a loss against Patrick’s Barnabas list. It’s Minions-fever here in Pittsburgh apparently.

Not If But When

Not If But When

We all knew it was a matter of time. I caved. My plan to play nothing but Legion of Everblight until the America’s Team Championship in 2019 has failed. I did get 40 total games in of Legion, which is virtually a new record for me in terms of keeping with one faction. But I went back to Protectorate, at least for a couple of games. As the image above shows: I’ve got the streak of flame and faith to me.

I’m going to keep working on my Legion project and keep practicing with those models, but I just needed a bit of a break. A little vacation into the faithful was fun, and a good way to shake up some of the games for our Permanent Death League that is going on. After this post, it’ll be back to Legion games for a while yet. They’re still the thing I think I feel most comfortable with, and have the strongest drive to paint and play overall.

I messed around with a few casters at first (clockwise from left). Tried a Severius2 list into Larry’s Madrak1 infantry list. Didn’t go so well, as Madrak1 has some pretty solid answers to everything I was trying to leverage. Lost on scenario pretty handily. Second game was Feora3 vs Rob’s Kraye, which I won just by an oversight in positioning. He even checked the distances, but then left a chargeable-model too close to a zero-camp Kraye (behind a forest even). Feat, charge, flame step, and finished. Lucky too, as the hurt that Kraye list can put out is serious to be sure. Finally, I played a game with Testament versus Andy’s Vlad1. Went the way of many Testament games. Exemplars took out some heavies, his remaining stuff killed a whole bunch of them, Testament sets up the assassination with ample damage on Vlad1 to burn focus and it finished with a charging errant who kills him. 

I kept riding (pun intended?) Feora3 for a couple more games after that first set. I’ve really liked her fire mechanism and ability for Daughters to be effective contesting pieces (I need to sort out better contesting pieces with my Legion forces). On the left, was Feora3 vs Steve’s Garryth list. She managed to kill a lot with fire, survive the assassination attempt from Garryth, and then finished him off herself. Steve had a line on a better kill of her with a throw, but he moved in a different direction so I got lucky–Garryth missed 2 of his attacks that would have hit if she were knocked down, which still were unlikely to have killed her but would have made it much closer. Finally, a game against Chris’ Naaresh Skorne beast brick with the Hydra. Was a fast game, as he rushed up the board and threw all his beasts directly into my face. Feora3 and a charging Flame Bringer both managed to have an angle on him, and he was running on empty to accept all the beasts’ Fury, which ended him quicker than he expected. 

 

Well, a little palette cleanser into Protectorate never hurt anyone too much. Now to get back into the swing of Legion things. Next on my painting table is a Hellmouth, and then more pieces of my Kallus1 Primal Terrors list that I’m enjoying.

Bringing the Blight

Bringing the Blight

So first off, buckle in for some odd battle reports. We kicked off our Permanent Death League at Drawbridge games on Thursday, so as Warlocks and named solos/warbeasts/units die, I’m likely to have some oddities in my lists for those games. That said, I’m also squeezing in some practice on my Primal Terrors lists in the meantime.

To that end, I finished up painting the Blightbringer for my army. After the CID it seems to be a really solid piece to support what Primal Terrors lists can do, so I wanted to get it completed.

Legion of Everblight Blightbringer

The games below he’s still in progress, sadly., but I wanted to get him on the table and start trying out Primal Terrors asap.

I started off the Permanent Death League running Vayl2, just because I wanted to get some experience with her but didn’t mind if she perished early in the league either. Clockwise from left: my game against Colton’s Khador and Vlad1, ended in a scenario loss for me. He ran Vlad with all the heavy armor infantry, and I just couldn’t keep up the pressure on my right flank. Vayl2 fared better into Justin’s Khador and Sorscha1, mainly because being immune to cold during the Feat can save your life in an assassination attempt. Finally I played a really hairy game against Larry’s Maelok list with all the Gatormen. He had a huge scenario advantage, but I managed to get the assassination thanks to a hellmouth tentacle, some shooting by my beasts, and Kallus1 finishing the gator off. 

 

4 Legion of Everblight Thagrosh2 vs Retribution Helynna

This table looked so nice, I wanted to include the bigger photo. This was a match with Thagrosh2 against Steve’s Helynna list. Was a good slugfest, and a Permanent Death League game that ended with four total characters leaving the league (two on each side). I managed to assassinate Helynna with the Blightbringer doing a slam attack that finished her (Eilish Garrity, before he died, had inflicted a lot of damage on her already with his little defensive spell ability). 

Overall I’m pleased with the Blightbringer as a piece. My only (and growing) concern with Legion is that I want to play a lot of the big pieces, so transporting them has been a real pain. I’ll have to sort out some more transportable lists (rather than all the huge bases). Hmmmm.
