As you may also have known, the Bugeater GT is coming up in a couple weekends. The new edition has not been around for a month yet, and as such, Tim has (wisely) chosen to stick with 6th edition. This has given me a lot of thinking to do on how exactly I want to experience the Bugeater.

Warmachine Batrep #5: Circle vs. Trolls, Menoth, and Skorne 15 Points - Grow League Week 2 (with pictures!)
Today was week 2 in our Journeyman Grow League in Fort Collins, CO. I have decided to play as Baldur1, who I initially thought of as a boring choice. I mean - who wants to play big slow dudes who have zero defense? Just doesn't seem very flexible to me, and I've never been a fan of attrition armies.
However, Baldur1 does give a lot of fun tactical flexibility. I need to work on some things with him (obviously), but there are lots more options with him than I had initially foreseen. Let's see how I did: I got 3 games in, all of which were quite fun :)

My friend has a large Khador army, though he hasn't played a ton of games lately. We're both trying to get "tournament ready", so if we make mistakes here, please don't get TOO angry at us :)
At any rate, Khador is quite a bit different than Skorne...

Warmachine Batrep #3: Circle (eKreuger) vs. Skorne (eHexeris, then eMakeda) 50 Points (With Pictures!)
Please note that with all these batreps, not all of them are in order. For instance, my Grow League batrep actually came after this chronologically. It was just the one I wanted to get out before my second week of grow league, which pushed this report back.
At any rate, let's get to the first game!

I'm a firm believer that if you want to play a game competitively, you need to understand how everything in the game works, not just your own rules/army. This is especially true in Warmachine, as some combos will just jump out and kill you. Gotta know every caster, and what most of the (multiple) special rules do too, and how they can make your opponent's units much better than "normal".

As this post attests, I have not played Warmachine in around 3 years. I'm pretty new to the whole scene, and there are a TON of new models I had no idea existed. Circle now has birds for warbeasts. Who thought that was a good idea?
My aim is to make as competitive a list as possible, which is awesome, because hey - you can do that in Warmachine and still be fluffy! :)
At any rate, let's jump into the lists!
