The New Recruit

  1. The New Recruit #9

    List Synergies I have yet to rematch Trevor Christiansen and Molik Karn, but reflecting over my last couple of losses I have come to one stark conclusion: I am still clueless in understanding list synergies. List synergies are what turn basic models and units into powerful tools of destruction. However the more intricate and subtle interactions still completely evade me...
  2. The New Recruit #8

    I Can Cast Defender’s Ward on Kreoss?!? This Saturday, 3/15/14, the Chain Attack gang is representing Discount Games Inc. in Utah at the Spring 2014 Intermountain Cup, as such I have had a difficult time scheduling a game with Trevor for a rematch against Molik Karn. As such, I managed to corner Scott and play a quick 25 point game...
  3. The New Recruit #7

    Reflections from the New Recruit This week I was unable to play the rematch with Trevor. Between his busy schedule and mine, we were unable to find a time to connect, therefore we have pushed our rematch back another week and I will report on that battle next week. I apologize for the inconvenience. However, having a week without a...
  4. The New Recruit #6

    Violated by Molik Karn I am still a beginner at Warmachine, but I am beginning to feel like I know the basics of the game, the core concepts of forming a strategy, and the wherewithal to execute it. That however falls apart when facing deceptively simple lists with complicated layered interactions between figures. This week I attempted to play a...
  5. The New Recruit #5

    Location, Location, Location I had grown complacent in my game. Strategies were becoming the same: rush the objective, keep Vassals and the Choir close to Reckoners, reserve pKreoss in the back, waiting to spring his feat at the opportune time, and have Zealots mad rush in and obstruct to delay and gain a better position against my opponent for the...

  8. The New Recruit #2

    My First Encounter With Menoth Denial I am learning to play Menoth for the Journeyman League and my 15 point list is composed of Kreoss 1, Reckoner x2, a Vassal, and a Choir (min). The first few games with this list felt natural. Choir buffs Reckoners, Vassal grants a free attack, assault, and dominate. But this fell apart the first...
  9. The New Recruit #1

    My name is Jeff, and I am an avid and passionate table top gamer and have known Jay for several years. After Jay learned of my passion for traditional strategy games, Go, Chess, Hnefatafl, etc., he arranged a time to demo Warmachine with me. While I am familiar with numerous games, I have never played Warmachine or any other table...
