The (French) Foreign Legion

The (French) Foreign Legion

The Legion learning curve continues for me. I’ve enjoyed it thus far, and I’m trying to be limited in what I’m fielding to better learn certain things. Right now I’m focusing on Fyanna2 (Children of the Dragon, 2 units of Swordsmen), Thagrosh1 (Oracles double Thrones), and Kallus1 (Primal Terrors, Blightbringer plus Ogruns). Definitely enjoying the faction, though there are moments when it’s feeling really foreign to me. For instance, so much time playing Protectorate of Menoth makes the relative lack of magic defense really noticeable to me. To the point where Eilish Garrity has been in lists (or considered) much more than he likely should–and he’s hardly the best anti-magic.

Painting-wise, I’ve added Kallus1 so I can have at least one painted Warlock for the faction in my current scheme, and Azrael, a character Heavy that has a spot in my Fyanna2 list.

1 Legion of Everblight Kallus1

He’s the first model that’s more in the yellow armor than anything else. I still like the look. The picture doesn’t highlight it, but there’s a bit of blue on the chain that covers his skirt to balance it. I’m pretty pleased with the model, and I think when the rest of the army gets done alongside him it’ll look ideal. 

Here’s the front and back of Azrael. The pinkish fleshtone of the wings works well, I think. And I love the way the yellow pops on the cool-tone model. It took a lot of work to get him done, but I’m really glad I finished it up. 

Now to games played. This set will be pretty quick, as they’re all just practice and refinement games that I’ve been getting in. We have a great local meta split across a few stores (Drawbridge, SCG Hobby, and Mr Nice Guy Games) so it’s relatively easy to get in a number of games against quality opponents. All the comments will refer to the photos clockwise from the larger one on the left.

First faced Justin’s Madrak1 list with my Fyanna2 list. Was a very close and grindy game (often the case between our lists), which I managed to win on clock. Next was a loss to Steve’s Helynna with Thagrosh1. I got behind on attrition, and had to go for assassination that simply flubbed the critical part (a miss on the boosted Mutagenesis–a long shot to begin with anyhow). Followed that with another match using Thagrosh1, this time against Xavier’s Kaya3. I did a good job taking out critical pieces in favorable trades in this one, and set up a scenario win as time ran tight. 

The first photo here represents two games, as I played Larry’s Gaspy3 10 Slayers list twice in a row with my Fyanna2 swordsmen list. The second time I did marginally better, but still game up very short. That’s a fearsome list! Followed it with a game against Ryan’s Deneghra3 that I won through sheer luck. Had he remembered to cast Ghostly on his own caster to avoid free strikes, and had those subsequent free strikes not both rolled huge on damage, he would have easily assassinated Thagrosh1. As it was, I pulled out the win through luck and oversight. Final game of this set was another Thagrosh1 game, this time against Elara2. The thrones did enough work at the moments they needed to in order to clear his Sentinels, leaving Thagrosh’s force well able to slowly close in on Elara2 to victory. 

Final trio of games. Another match against Steve’s Elara2, this time much closer as a battle. I managed to win by leveraging swordsmen in the far zone of the shot to a scenario victory. Had he managed to eliminate the Abbot with his shooting (which he almost succeeded on) it would have been much closer for Retribution. Turns out Cleave works well. Next up was Kallus1’s first outing, against Justin’s Khador led by Karchev. Another absolute slugfest. I managed to wreck a lot of warjacks but just wasn’t able to keep pace on scenario and lost by a pretty hefty margin. Final match for this set was again Kallus1 against Patrick’s Exulon Thexus. I had a good round with Hellmouths and the Blightbringer swinging balance of heavy hitters my way. He had to try for assassination, and failed (in part thanks to Kallus1’s defense boost on his Feat turn). Made a clear win for me the following turn. 

All-in-all some really good learning experiences. I’m definitely feeling like I have a sense of my Fyanna2 list. I know what it can face off against well, and where it struggles. Despite the fact that I absolutely love my Azrael model that I finished up, I think that list is going to get some thought and consideration before I get more elements painted for it. I’m leaning toward getting more of the Kallus1 and Thagrosh1 lists finished up and seeing where they can take me as a pairing.

Chase for the Cup

Chase for the Cup

It’s the start of the 2018 Appalachian Cup season. I took my Legion to the first qualifier, looking to leverage Fyanna2, Thagrosh1, and Lylth1 to victory (it’s a three-list format). First tho, I managed to get a bit more painting done for the event.

1 Legion of Everblight Nephilim Bloodseer

Nephilim Bloodseer. Not only do I really like the way the paint job turned out, I really like this model in the game. Solid defensive stats, strong magic interference, and occasional knockdown fishing. 

2 Legion of Everblight The Forsaken

Also finished a Forsaken. A good chance to experiement with the dragonflesh tone on a smaller model. For Fyanna2 (who is getting painted soon) it will be interesting to blend the blues with the skin tone. Happy with how this model turned out. 

 

I went 1-2 at the Appalachian Cup, but had a great time and good experience with my games. I’m still seeing how match-ups work for my forces, so there’s a lot of work I need to do in terms of practice and reps.

3 Legion of Everblight Fyanna2 vs Minions Jaga-Jaga

First game was against Larry IV’s Minions and Jaga-Jaga. It was a good game for me, as I was able to collapse the side away from the Dracodile. Finally ended on scenario as he just couldn’t get enough contesting.

4 Legion of Everblight Lylyth1 vs Retribution Issyria

Second game was against Patrick’s Issyria. It’s a bad matchup for my lists, and I didn’t do myself much favor with Lylyth1. She didn’t have what it takes to pull out a victory against all those fast and accurate weaponmasters. Back to the drawing board for what I’ll do against this force. 

5 Legion of Everblight Thagrosh1 vs Grymkin Child

Third game I played Thagrosh1 vs Ken’s Grymkin (the Child). I actually lost on the clock in this match, which was an utter slugfest. I had the advantage but just couldn’t clear the zones fast enough to get the points advantage in time. As I get better with the force (this was only Thagrosh1’s third game for me), that should help on the time issue.

Overall a good first Appalachian Cup event for me. Scored me 5 points toward getting into the Appalachian Cup finals, which alone is a good start. With more practice, I should be successful.

Speaking of practice, I played 4 practice games before the App Cup as well. Some shots from them (comments run clockwise from top left):

 

Had a win against Steve’s Helynna, facing all the Retribution armor. Next got in a CID game against Andy’s Sorscha2 with Lylyth1–took some tricky throws to clear zones but won on scenario. Faced Savage’s Kaelyssa list with Thagrosh1, and finally took on Larry’s Dreamer–and managed to scrape a victory there.

Quality Qualifier

Quality Qualifier

This past weekend I went to a great event at Millenium Games in Rochester, NY. Had a great time fielding my Legion in a pretty strong competitive forum–34 players over five rounds made for a really vibrant field. If nothing else, I got to play games against five players I’ve never faced before, which let me see all sorts of stuff I’ve never seen on the tabletop. But first, as always, painting progress.

Legion of Everblight Ravagore Bone Blue Fire

I finished up a Ravagore for my Lylyth2 list, in the nick of time to convince myself that I don’t really want to play Lylyth2. When CID happens and Ravagores come down in price, I may return to her. But for now he’ll be a great shelf centerpiece model at least!

Now a quick breakdown of my World Ender Qualifier games. I lost my first two, but one the next three. Ending 3-2 felt pretty good overall to me given that it was a competitive field, my Lylyth2 list had some clear holes in ability, and I’m still newer at playing Legion. The pictures are not always so pretty to look at, as I’m still hardly painted on my lists. But I’m making progress!

1 Legion Fyanna2 vs Grymkin Old Witch3

First up, Paul (from somewhere in NY) and his Old Witch 3 infantry swarm. This was a rough one, as Old Witch 3 brings a lot of assassination threat and 50 infantry models. I tried to clear and simply couldn’t manage all their numbers, and had to play for an ill-advised assassination before my left flank totally collapsed. Was a good game, and exactly why I need a better infantry clearing list (I knew that Lylyth2 simply couldn’t get it done either. 

2 Legion Lylyth2 vs Cygnar Caine1

Second, Piotr from Rochester and his Caine1 Gravediggers list. Friendly guy, and good to play someone from the area  where the event was held. This match was lopsided all the way. I didn’t have the tools nor the luck to really leverage. I managed to hang in the game for a while thanks to Lylyth’s stealth and gradual clearing, but it was never going to be something I could press for victory due to attrition of my force. 

3 Legion Fyanna2 vs Trollbloods Madrak1

Third round was Luke from Syracuse and his Madrak1 Storm of the North list. This was a fun game as there was a lot of missing done by both sides, so for a while we both really felt like we were in it. I got a clock advantage, and started to press on the side where Madrak1 was standing, which leveraged a win for me on scenario eventually. Heck of a grind, and a really friendly opponent. 

4 Legion Fyanna2 vs Khador Strakov2

Fourth round I faced Adam from Buffalo’s Strakov2 Legion of Steel list. In the course of chatting, I found out he’s running a team event I’m headed to in March, so it was good to put a name with a face. This was another slugfest, but one that I was able to do a little better at surviving than some others I’ve played. Admonition saved Fyanna2’s life near the end, which left me in a position to score the last points I needed to win. Was an enjoyable match–probably my favorite from the weekend as I felt like we both played well for the most part. 

5 Legion Fyanna2 vs Circle Kaya3

Finally, I faced Chris and his Kaya3 list (at that point I was a little out of it, having started on the road at 4am to get to the tourney… missed where Chris hailed from). Another game, another Iron Kingdoms farmhouse or barn smack-dab in the middle of things. That made 4 of the 5 rounds I played with some manner of building in the middle. This was another “I never play Circle, let’s see how we do” learning experience, and I got very lucky multiple times to manage the win. There were about three turns where his force had some tricky play that just didn’t quite work out every time–either my Bloodseer’s armor was a bit too much, or Fyanna2 was just a bit too slippery, or something. Was a good game, and a very nice guy to end a tournament playing. 

I played a few prep games before heading to the tourney as well, all practicing my two lists (Lylyth2 in Primal Terrors and Fyanna2 in Children of the Dragon).

(Clockwise from top left) Lylyth2 managed to squeeze out a win against Chris’ Naaresh list despite not having any tools to deal with his armor and anti-shooting. Kallus2 came up short in my first fielding of him, unable to finish off Sorscha1 on an assassination attempt and paying for it. Vayl1 versus Larry’s Jaga-Jaga was just a little too clunky to get the job done, even when I had a shot at stopping her. And finally, Lylyth2 managed to get an assassination in on Ryan’s Gaspy2 thanks to range and Pin Cushion. 

All-in-all a great set of games. I’m getting more and more comfortable with my Fyanna2 list. Now the challenge will be taking it into all sorts of opponents to see what it can handle and what it cannot. And I’m going to assemble the pieces I need to complete the other list that I hope will be a better pairing.

Right into the (Blight)fire

Right into the (Blight)fire

Another couple of weeks and more progress on my Legion of Everblight project. First painting, then gaming–and what a bunch of gaming it was (two tournaments!).

I’ve already painted 24 points worth of Legion Models, and will be adding more soon. So far I’ve completed test colors for my infantry (shown in the prior blog post). This time I worked out my Warbeast scheme and armor scheme with a Stinger, a Naga Nightlurker, and a Nephilim Bolt Thrower.

1 Legion of Everblight Stinger

This Stinger lesser warbeast was my first test model for the color scheme of the beasts, and he turned out well enough. I decided on different tone for armor plates vs nails and teeth, and I’m glad I did. I definitely needed to work more on the armor plating, but otherwise I think he turned out great. 

2 Legion of Everblight Naga Nightlurker Blue Bone

I’m far more pleased with the Naga Nightlurker though. I worked out a higher level of bone and I think it did very nicely for his scales. Definitely going to be pleased with this as a force color. 

3 Legion of Everblight Nephalim Bolt Thrower Yellow Armor Blue Skin Bone

My big question was how my idea for yellow armor would look on the blue skin. So I had to do an armored model next: enter the Nephilim Bolt Thrower. I did the Nephilim a half step brighter in skin tone than the other beasts, as that seems pretty common with the other Nephilim examples I see. I think the armor plates worked well, and the contrast while stark kinda looks right in my eyes. When I get some models mixed in with even more armor plates I think the whole lot will look like a great force. 

With models slowly joining the force, I had to get my play skills up to the task as well. First up, a couple of practice games with Thagrosh2 to get started.

4 Legion of Everblight Vayl1 vs Scaverous

Thagrosh2 takes on Scaverous. Was a pretty mistake-filled game as I am still fresh to Legion and Ryan was running Scaverous for the very first time. Thagrosh2 got the job done in the end. 

5 Legion of Everblight Thagrosh2 vs Issyria

Against Issyria, Thagrosh2 again took the field. The Throne was a monster this game, eliminating 8 sentinels and 2 arcanists in a single round, then taking the entirety of my opponent’s force to finally kill thanks to Dragon’s Blood. Left a situation where Steve, my opponent, took some shots at Thagrosh who moved up with Hyper Aggressive (which I love on himself) and was able to reach Issyria. 

Instead of being sensible and practicing a lot more, I dove right into a doubles tournament and then a local steamroller the following weekend. The doubles tournament went okay, I lost one, won one, and played my teammate Ryan in the second round as we had the bye. The Steamroller went better, as I finished in second place–winning my first two rounds then losing in the final game.

I forgot to photo round one of the doubles tournament, but it was a loss to Savage’s Circle Orboros force. He was ready to throw in the towel when I started my Feat turn, but he ended up seeing how the dice went and Thagrosh2’s beast rush failed to finish off Krueger2. The second game (above left) was just a practice during the bye round against Ryan’s Scaverous list with my Fyanna2, as both of us wanted the reps with new stuff. My final game was against Ken’s Grymkin and the Wanderer. It was a great slugfest of a game, with my high defense versus his star-crossed bubble making for slow removal on both sides. I managed to finally win on scenario by collapsing a side and starting to score. Was a great game, capped off a fun event. 

Finished second at the Steamroller, which I’ll certainly take as positive. My first game was against Charles’ Skarre1. Lylyth2 was able to kill Aiakos who was running the Kraken, so Skarre1 had to move to activate it–leaving her in range of Lylyth and a Ravagore for the assassination. The second game was against Bill’s Kara Sloan list, and Fyanna’s troops got absolutely shot to pieces. Mercifully Azrael was able to land shots on Sloan over two turns and kill her as the rest of my army just jammed and died. The final round was against Larry’s Grymkin and the Dreamer. I made a mistake committing Azrael a bit too early, rather than just using spacing to stay safe from the troop-gobbling Rattler, and another mistake with placement around a close Skin and Moans. I left a spot for him to Apparate with the Dreamer’s upkeep, which meant that Fyanna2 didn’t get to admonition out of the way (which was what I was counting on to keep me safe when I didn’t manage to kill it). I don’t feel terrible about the game, but it was definitely a few mistakes on my part that kept me from being successful (in addition to Larry’s always excellent play of course). 

All in all I’m really happy with where my Legion is starting to go. I love my paint scheme, and when the bases arrive I’m going to be even more pleased to get them models looking right. A slightly orange-ish or tan limestone look to the base plates will really make the models look right. And I’m definitely enjoying them in the game. I am a much more natural Hordes player than Warmachine, and I’m especially liking the initial list for Fyanna2 that I’m running as it plays different than many things I’ve used in the game before. All-in-on-Legion-2018 seems to be shaping up well from the start.

A Monstrous Mistake?

A Monstrous Mistake?

So my last post was pretty positive about Protectorate. And then I proceeded to remember why I stalled with them the past few times I’ve done them. I just don’t feel pulled to paint that scheme, particularly the infantry that I had to complete (40 or so Exemplars for the Testament list). So it was a bit of back-to-the-drawing-board. And I decided to resurrect a force that I haven’t fielded since October 2015: Legion of Everblight. In Mark II I played mostly Skorne, but before even that I amassed a Legion of Everblight army at the very start of Mark II through when I started up with Skorne. They were pirate-themed, converted to have tricorn hats and ship-decking bases, and generally pretty enjoyable. They’re where I cut my teeth as a Warmachine and Hordes player–a whole lot of Saeryn1 and Vayl1 reps under my belt from back then.

And now instead of going with Protectorate of Menoth, I’m actually thinking of getting back into Legion. This may very well be a monstrous mistake, as I have a more Protectorate I can paint and field compared to what I can do for Legion. That said, I’m just not feeling it with Protectorate. And I had an idea. I was looking at the models and thinking about color scheme (because I want to do a new one, rather than my current purple-skin, orange-spectrum chitin look). And I realized that the feathers on all of the Nyss could be the focal points of those models, and they looked somewhat Aztec in a way. And I realized I’m going to try for that sort of look to my force.

 

These images give a good sense of what colors I’m thinking of using for feathers and armor. Feathers will be reds, blues, teals, rare greens, and purples. Armor brown/yellow/bone/gold hues (going to work on that part). If I use the jaguar skin look anywhere is unlikely, tho maybe certain fabrics to represent pelts. 

So here’s my first test model, a Blighted Nyss Shepard. I was most inspired by the colors of the woman with the bird headdress: muted palate, blue tone feathers, yellow armor. I’m skipping the red tone, as it will keep the model in a more simple two-tone that I like.

Blighted Nyss Shepherd Legion of Everblight

Yeah, the base is still incomplete–I ordered a set of Aztec-themed bases from Dragonforge, but they’ll be a while until they get completed and shipped to me. It’s a great company, but just a single dude who casts his product on request. So gotta wait a bit on those, but it should be worth it if they turn out right. Check them out:

Dragonforge Aztex Bases

As for games, these first few were pretty ugly because I’m running lists more on what I have painted and table-ready (even if in old scheme) than what is really good with those Warlocks. However I need to start getting reps, no matter how the models are painted, so I can feel more confident with the force. I went with a mix of a new Warlock (Thagrosh2) that I’ve always wanted to try, and a classic I feel semi-comfortable with (Vayl1) as my first pairing attempt for these games.

Vayl1 vs Denny1

Vayl1 takes the field against Deneghra1. I lost my first game with Thagrosh2 when I came up one attack short on Denny1 (and totally forgot to Feat… which would have led to the winning attack on a Scourge-knocked-down Denny). I won this game in the same way, he just couldn’t finish off Vayl1 thanks to enough transfers. Which led to a Incited Raek surviving a free strike and getting onto Denny without any Focus for an assassination. 

It’s a start at least. Now more games will slowly let me shape things up. A new model painted, a lesson learned, bases completed. It’ll be a long road, but I’m excited about the promise of this faction and this year of gaming. Is it a monstrous mistake to go down this road rather than Protectorate? Time will see.

Carnage at the Confluence

Carnage at the Confluence

The breeding pens had been set, and the restless howl of the accumulated dragonspawn created a roar in the underground burrows. Thagrosh stalked between the pens, pleased at his plans. Rumors of the bones of a lost kin of Toruk named Vorspark*, and the fragmented Athanc they might contain, were turned up by a group of long-ranging Strider Blightblades. They had captured and tortured a Greylord scholar who tended an ancient archive in the northern plains. He revealed a bit of lore that led to more: Vorspark’s Athanc was indeed most likely hidden near the confluence of the Irkel river in northern Khador. 

Yet the location posed a problem. The armies of Khador were spread across nothern provinces retraining and staging for potential southerly pursuits. Even more complicated, the location of the Athanc was right where two large Kriels of Trollbloods had been permitted to resettle as a gesture of good faith by Khador after the Trolls were betrayed by Cygnar. The sheer number of potential foes meant it was time for the Legion of Everblight to strike in true force for the last time.

Thagrosh had summoned all of the commanders, even those he clashed with in the past. The potential of recovering and utilizing another Athanc was too great–especially one that Toruk seemed to have no knowledge about. He sent gangs of captured laborers and the Blighted Ogruns that owned them to hollow out a staging area for the armies of Everblight amidst the winding tributaries of the Tapping River which lay north of the Irkel river. With a huge supply of new beasts created, and tribes of Blighted Nyss creeping southward to support them, Thagrosh and the Legion of Everblight were poised to spread their Wargroups out and drive into the heart of the Irkel river. It would not be long before the ranging scouts of Khador and the Trollblood Kriels would notice them and summon a response in force. It was time to strike, and the howl of beasts in the tunnels would be unleashed in full.
