The swamps are perilous, even more so when the ferocious gatormen are on the prowl. The High Exemplar himself, Kreoss, takes to the field to stamp down the menace of Jaga-Jaga and her heretical magics… but many armed creatures come to her beck and call, and threaten to tear down the faithful. Can Kreoss take down the might Death Charmer herself?
You’ve got this great tech, it looks like it’ll take down half the field, you’ve played it a few times, it works, you have a really good feeling about this list, but now you need to go to a tournament this Saturday… what’re you going to pair with your new baby?
Hypothetically speaking, you walk up to the table, you have never played against the faction you are looking at across the table, in fact you have no idea what any of the lists do, do you panic? Nope, got this, let’s break down how to look at a tournament game and assess the threats to you.
In the first week of any CID, there is always a lot of excitement and anticipation, inevitably peppered with some disappointments and concerns. While this CID cycle is young, here are a few pieces I’m concerned about given the context of their appearance (or lack thereof) in the recent CID, why I think they’re a bit rough, and why I think them getting better would be a huge boon to the Protectorate. Agree with me, disagree with me, let me know your thoughts in the comments!
Time for a narrative scenario, complete with narration and a total lack of Steamroller rules or even (gasp) battlegroups! Come and read the first of many, many trophy kill adventures as Jaden and his wife take on a fearsome Storm Raptor together…
You walk up to the table, you’re 3/0 in a 5 round tournament, this is where the opponents really ramp up, gotta focus, oh crap it's Tom Guann, blonde highlights and everything, with his Haley 3 list… now what?
A rare occasion indeed, Jaden and Chandler get to sit down and knock out a real life game of Warmachine! Jaden already posted his point of view of the whole escapade, but how is it from the point of view of the REAL good guys?
The Community Integrated Development process has been a force of change in every faction it has touched, starting with Grymkin, then for our existing factions going into Cygnar, Trollbloods, Minions, Cryx, Legion, and Khador, every one has come out the other end with new and interesting pieces as well as a mess of fixes and tweaks to existing models. It's no surprise, then, that many of the Faithful are excited that the Exemplar CID will be starting on May 2nd.
Sea Kings and Templars and Zealots, oh my! Jaden and Chandler play the final game of Warmachine of Jaden's single life in an epic throwdown between the virtuous Hunter Grim Angus and the....also virtuous (which is rare for Protectorate) Anson Durst!
Ever tried to teach someone how to play Warmachine and Hordes? It's really hard! Jaden takes some teaching strategies he uses at work and goes over how he recommends introducing new players to the game in the first part of this series on introducing Warmachine to new players!
Have you ever tried to go full competitive? Maybe got close at a couple Steam Rollers, but got paired with JVM first round, got touched in a bad place by a nominally bad faction and lost all hope of leaving Scrubdom? ME TOO! Let’s start over from the bottom, and work our way up!
