Two games in - and the enthusiasm is back!

Had my second game last night, with a karchev + jack heavy list, and won on caster kill. This was a welcome relief from my first game, where I lost by scenario. The scenario in this game was to control a 12" diameter circle in the middle of the map - I was playing against an Irusk tier list which included the Behemoth.

No pics, unfortunately (forgot to take the camera) but it unfolded like this: 2 units of Man of War come in from his flank to the middle, plus the Behemoth and a Berserker. I totally mess up a Karchev power slide and end up 1-2" away from the Behemoth with 3 of my jacks. Then, my opponent messes up by forgetting to allocate focus to the behemoth - leaving the Behemoth failing to damage (significantly) any of my jacks. My turn - and Unearthly Rage wrecks both the Behemoth and the Zerker, and from that point I was just clearing troops till Irusk went down to a powerslide + Unearthly Rage attack by Drago/Spriggan/Kodiak. Good times :)

Back - After a long hiatus

Hello readers! (If there are any left, that is!)

After a long break from the hobby, due to moving to a new region and a new job, I have decided to get back into the game in full swing. I have looked around and through the local hobby shop (Jambo Hobbies in Napier) I have found a club that has recently gotten together to play Warmachine.

This sounds great to me, so this Thursday I will be packing a 50 point army to meet some of the guys, and have a game. Its only been a year or so since my last game, but im sure this will go well - Ill just take the ridiculously powerful Strahkov + Beast 09 combo that I won so many games with before, and see how it goes.

So, Ill take the camera as well, and have a play. Im quite excited about getting back into it, I suppose being a social hobby it sucked not to have anyone to play against (I miss you John, if your still around!)

Luckily Forward Kommander is still around, and I made a list for tomorrow night:
