Re: warmachine game tuesday july 31st

We've got a great bunch of folks playing WM/H at the club now, I think. Jordan's fun to play against because he's always so excited to play, but there's plenty of other folk that are a ton of fun to play against too! If you get lucky and also hit the club when Dave, Tom or Craig are around, try and ...

Re: 50pt Khador list

I believe he meant the spell Fury, not the mechanic. :) In any rate, no, casting Fury on the Kovnik will not also apply to the jacks. Couple points: 1) I'm assuming you meant 5 shocktroopers for 9 points? Or are you bringing 3 min units of 3? 2) Butcher has an awesome spell, Full Throttle, which aff...

Re: Backswing Errata ruling

The reason they run in a tight triangular formation is because they have defensive line, so they need to stay in B2B to benefit. I think it's kind of a silly ruling, personally. But I always assume that Great Bears will kill whatever they're attacking with their first swing, so I always try to keep ...

Re: Are we heading back to InfantryMachine?

The main reason why WM runs infantry heavy, I think, is that they don't have to decide between giving focus to jacks or casting spells. If the bulk of your army can't use focus, you can just use it all for spells. That, coupled with the fact that infantry is usually very good, it leaves little room ...

Re: MWG Beginner's Painting Class Recap

Ah, so that's what was going on last night!

Thursday nights are usually bad for me, last night was a fluke that I was there.

But at least now I have a face to put with your name. :) (I was the guy who said "Hey come here" to show you Kris's titan, as I didn't know your name at the time.)

Re: Strapped on what I should get next

They do different things, but if you want just one go with the Fenns +UA. They're going to work better with Borka, and the dollar cost is lower too. Full Kriel Warriors with all the fixings is nice, but it's pricey (points and model cost!)

Re: New to Hordes and to Skorne

Archdomina Makeda can really help with your hitting problems. Casting carnage means everyone of your models within 12" of her get +2 to hit. That puts your guys from MAT 6 up to effective MAT 8, which is going from "ok" to "awesome" Don't forget that your beasts can also boost to hit, and your savag...

So next time it takes me a month to receive a replacement boiler for a khador jack, I should get you to fast track it? ;)

Re: khador where to go

Excellent choices! If you're going to pick up some winter guard, you really want to consider Kovnik Joe, as well. He does so much for them! The only thing I'd be hesitant on would be the plastic warjack kit. With a juggernaut and a destroyer, you've already got the 2 (imo) best options the heavy jac...

Re: ???? Problem Understanding ????

Yup, this is exactly right. The only clarification I'd make is that you can be affected by both continuous fire and corrosion at the same time even though you can't be on fire or corroded more than once (per effect basically), although I can't think of many times outside team games where your enemy...

Re: Just made a Preorder

Ayden told me there's only 75 Mountain Kings available at L&L, so probably won't be too easy to get ahold of unfortunately. He did say he was picking one of them up (limit 1 per person) so you'll be able to take a gander!

Re: Epic Angus

Makeda with 2 ancestral guardians? Whaaaat?

That could be awesome! Especially if they count as AGs, so I can run immortals without needing the extra 3 points for the AG solo.

Re: Epic Angus

Grim's always been my favourite, now he's got even more style!

I totally missed the unit part. That's awesome!

(also, the person in the glare of that picture? you locals might recognize him... it's Ayden. ;))
