Renegade Open Non-Team Tournament Reports

Hello again everyone!

I also played in the non-team event the next day.  We had enough to play 5 rounds, although only the top 8 would play the last 3 rounds to make room for another event.  I decided to keep the same Makeda 1 list from the day before, but after significant fury management woes, I decided to switch the Mak3da list out for a more conventional Zaadesh 2 list:

Lord Tyrant Zaadesh (*28pts) - Imperial Warhost
*Bronzeback Titan (18pts)
*Titan Gladiator (15pts)
*Titan Sentry (15pts)
*Titan Sentry (15pts)
*Archidon (10pts)
*Basilisk Krea (0pts)
*Basilisk Krea (0pts)
*Agonizer (0pts)

Siege Animantrax (17pts)

Mortitheurge Willbreaker (4pts)

Paingiver Beast Handlers (Leader and 5 Grunts) (7pts)
Swamp Gobber Bellows Crew (2pts)

I like Zaadesh 2 a lot.  He feels like one of the most "Skorne" 'casters we have, especially with a big beast brick like this one.  The main work comes from the Titans, while the turtle and Archidon give me some flexibility a brick doesn't usually have.  The plan is: clouds up front, murder stuff with elephants.  :)  I would run a second free Agonizer instead of one of the Kreas, but I only own the one.

On to the games!

Renegade Open Team Tournament Reports

As I said sometime last year (sorry folks, I had to let the blog drop to take care of myself), I went to the Renegade Open, and played in a couple of Warmachine tournaments there.  The first one was the team tournament on Friday night, a 3-person event.  I was the captain of Team 4+ Tough, which also included my co-blogger Caleb, and friend of the blog and frequent opponent Ben.

Renegade Open Reports Incoming!

This past weekend, I went to the Renegade Open, a wargames convention right here in the Twin Cities.  I played in both the team tournament and the individual tournament with Skorne, and I'll have the reports up before (American) Thanksgiving.

I had an absolute blast, and I'll definitely be back next year.

That's all for now.  Stay tuned for updates.

Battle Report: Makeda 1 vs. Kaelyssa (75pts)

Hey everyone!

I've played a bunch of Cryx lately, but I haven't neglected Skorne.  I'm super excited about all our new themes, and I thought I'd give one of them a try last weekend.  Here's what I took:

Archdomina Makeda (*29pts) - Masters of War
*Molik Karn (19pts)
*Titan Gladiator (15pts)
*Scarab Pack (10pts)

Tyrant Rhadiem (9pts)

Cataphract Cetrati (Leader and 5 Grunts) (18pts)
*Command Attachment (Tyrant Vorkesh) (0pts - Theme Benefit)
Praetorian Ferox (Leader and 4 Grunts) (20pts)
Legends of Halaak (8pts)
Tyrant Commander and Standard Bearer (0pts - Theme Benefit)
Paingiver Beast Handlers (Leader and 3 Grunts) (5pts)

Theme Benefits
*+1 to the starting roll
*Free Tyrant Commander and Standard Bearer or Command Attachment for every 20pts of Praetorian or Cataphract models/units.
*Melee attacks by warrior models ignore Tough, and a model boxed by those attacks is removed from play.

JML - 30pt Battle Report

Hello dear readers.  Between three weeks ago and just now, we decided to switch from the 2016 JML rules to 2017, which has you add models in 15pt intervals.  Since people were sick or busy over the intervening weeks, we decided to add just 5pts to take us from 25 to 30.  I was running:

Bane Witch Agathia (*29pts)
*Reaper (13pts)
*Slayer (10pts)
*Canker Worm (9pts)
*Deathripper (6pts)

Pistol Wraith (5pts)
Warwitch Siren (4pts)

Carrion Thralls (Leader and 9 Grunts) (10pts)

Total: 28/30pts

More JML - 25pt Battle Report

This past Friday we moved up to 25pts, meaning that if I want to stay ahead on painting, I need to get my act together this week.

I played a fun game, even though it was small, so I'll do a report.  At 25pts, I had:

JML Progress!

I finished my Pistol Wraith, so here are some pics of that.

And the whole 25pt force I'm ready to field:

We met last Friday and I played 2 games at 10pts (battlegroup + Canker Worm for me), and lost them both!  The Skorne box still makes a lot more sense to me, although I'm no fan of Xekaar.  Clearly I need to learn to Cryx a bit better.  A couple shots from my games:

I'm currently 1-4 for the league, but at least I'm ahead on painting.

Until next time!
