Re: A good army for a nine year old?

Well, with the exception of Kallus and Thags, all of Legion's warlocks are female. And Thags is less male then he is dragon, so he might even fit with the monster theme. Legion is a good choice, I think. They also are pretty cool gameplay wise. A lot of their beasts have pathfinder and eyeless sight...

Re: OMG THE GALLEON!

Magnus didn't build it. He just bought them out from under the pirates.

He did build the renegade though (http://privateerpress.com/warmachine/ga ... s/renegade)

Re: Starter box or two player starter set?

It is definitely a much better deal to buy the 2-player box, if you're planning on buying the skinwalkers. Not only is it almost the same cost as buying the BB + Unit separately, you also get the mini-rulebook (which is identical to the main rulebook, save lacking the fluff pieces and some model ent...

Re: New to warmachine, want to start Cryx

The good thing about WM, in contrast to your WHFB or 40k experience, is that you almost never run into a situation where models are really useless. You can have lists with more synergy and less synergy, and some that make much of the caster's abilities not terribly useful (ie, mostly unit buffs in a...

Re: Got Rules Questions? Ask 'Em Here WM/H Edition!

Disabled, Boxed, Destroyed all happen when the warjack (or any model) has their last health box filled. (I think that's the order, it might be boxed, disabled, destroyed) It is done this way because some effects will trigger at different stages. So if a model is disabled, and has tough, they get to ...

Re: Restarting Warmahordes

I think you had it right with Menoth. They can (and usually do) do everything you're looking for. If you're wanting to try something different, Trolls could work, as they are pretty good at bricking up, but they tend to lack any real board control/denial abilities (aside from a token few)

Mercenary 'Jack Marshalls marshall mercenary jacks (like the mule) regardless of what army they are being used in.

Re: So Circle Orboros has a new warbeast?

From the description, he maybe gives them berserk? Would be pretty nasty. Though with their MAT 6 they might not be able to make great use of it.

Maybe a mini feat for that grants extra movement on a charge?

Re: Getting started with Menoth

The ranking officer rule clarifies how RO and Jack Marshall work together. Basically, the unit can still only marshall the jacks it could marshall without the RO, and the RO does not change the Jack's faction.

Dave and Craag fielding unpainted armies?

I might have a chance to finally win a game! Everyone knows painted models do better, so when the field is evened out maybe I can eek out a win.

Re: Journeyman

You do not have to buy a new box. You can use your existing models, you just won't get painting points for models that were painted before the league began. That said, any models you paint for the faction you chose for the league during the league count, even if you never play a single game with them.

Re: Warbeast/Warjack armies

People often say that Fury has no real downside, since beasts never frenzy anyway. Sometimes this is true. Other times, it can cripple you for a turn. I just played a game with Dan (that was recorded, so there's even proof that will soon be online!) which put me in a really tough position. I ended u...

Re: Saturday October 13 Warmahordes 2 Player Team Tournament

I was under the impression that there are no theme lists allowed.

And last time I was in the store, Jordan told me I'm running the tournament, so I guess that makes my word official now!
