Nothing beats getting up at 6am on a cold, wet, Parisian morning to go and play some toy soliders. This time was slightly different however as this time I was preparing myself to be fired across Europe in a tin can, direction: Poland and the Warmachine and Hordes World Team Championships!
Played my first games with skorne last night using the pMorghoul from my last post!
Hey people, hope you all had a fun this summer and now that the bad weather is slowly seeping back in (or at least it is in Paris) we can get back to some wargames without feeling guilty that we’re missing out on the Sun!
No spoilers here: Warmachine is a game of tactics and knowledge. Once you’ve recovered from the shock of me stating the bleeding obvious I’ll go on to say that these principles should envelop not just your own army but that of your opponents and the battlefield (in the form of scenarios and terrain). When I went to write (or copy, see last post) the lists I planned on starting this year off with I considered each one of these points in order to create a two-list set up that would give me good coverage against any opponent.
Also what’s with the Art of War reference? Because it seems like any time anyone broaches this kind of subject the first thing they will do is quote Sun Tzu. Whilst I didn’t really want to do that, I didn’t want to come across as a completely uncultured barbarian either so there you go, this article now contains just the right amount of Sun Tzu.
Right then I’m back into it so enough talk (big words for a guy writing a blog I know) let’s get down to business. Getting back into the game means essentially two things: I need to play and I need to paint. Best get cracking then!
As mentioned in my last post I’m trying to rediscover my Khador by moving out of my comfort zone and visiting some of the more unorthodox casters and units.OrsusSmash did a fantastic write up about Khadoran casters and this material along with my revitalized feel for the game has given plenty of inspiration for forces I’d like to try out and what follows are a few of those lists along with a preliminary analysis of what I’m trying to achieve with them.
The end of October saw the arrival of Frontlines 2 to The Outpost in Sheffield. It’s been a few months in the making and as my first time organizing an event like this it was a learning curve but in the end it turned out to be a great day! I thought I’d talk a bit about what we did, show you guys some photos and also give out some tips on how to run your own event like this!
