Hey, I'm Xaereth, welcome to Delusions of Grandeur! This is a blog dedicated (mostly) to competitive play in miniature gaming. I used to play 40k competitively, but have since started to play Warmachine exclusively. Mostly just battle reports these days. We'll see if I ever make time for more. Heh.
Howdy, everyone! Today I've got a fun one for you! This is from my Day 3 at Feast of Blades. More importantly, it's a masters report! I got to play a total of four games against great players, and took pictures of all of them! I was really looking forward to playing, despite knowing that I stood very little chance to even win one game, much less the whole thing. Still, I was excited to play against the best players in the tournament, and at least get some experience.
What's up what's up! I have another set of Circle Batreps for you today from my recent foray to the Feast of Blades! If you look at Batrep 30, you can read my harrowing journey through the morass that was the Divide and Conquer event, and my single Iron Gauntlet game against Lylyth2. I'll spoil what happened on Friday after the break, and set up the team tournament. It's kind of awesome, actually. 4 reports total today, with my usual load of pictures and stuff.
Whew! Just got back from Feast of Blades, and I'm kind of wiped out! I played a total of 14 games, and took pictures for all of them! I won't spoil the results for you all, so you can be in suspense the whole time :-p
I'll be writing up three different posts: Days 1, 2, and 3. It'll take me a while to get through all of the games, but I'll get there! I only took three different lists, though I think that at least one of those will be changing in the future. I'll let you figure out which one for yourself, haha ;)
Let's get to the jump, and we can begin to unpack the SIX games I played on Day 1 of Feast of Blades.
Howdy, folks! I've been pumping out reports pretty quick lately, trying to get ready for Feast, and using these reports not only to entertain my readers, but also to help me analyze my play. Today I've got a couple good ones for you - both against Khador, and both against the dreaded Josh "noobSTOMP" Nordstrom. (I should note that I'm the only noob he stomps - he's actually pretty nice to others of my kind)
One game is against my white whale - Butcher3. I've lost three out of three games against Butcher3, but each game has been closer than the last. Can I beat him this time?
The other is a game against Sorscha2, where Josh and I agreed not to take our "crutch" casters. Funny to think of Morv2 as NOT my crutch caster, lol. At any rate, let's see what the holds in store for us!
Howdy, folks! Another two reports here, in my attempt to get ready for Feast! I'm only taking my three "main" casters lately, which may be a little boring to you all, but I need the practice! I'm still a noob, and though I feel like I'm getting better, there is still so much I need to learn. One of these games is evidence of that :)
I faced off against my buddy Vince and his Zaal list once again, but first I got the pleasure to play against a new opponent (new to me, but he's been playing for a long time) named Casey, who has been playing Saeryn and Lylyth2 nonstop lately. I was excited to get a game in against him, as Legion is a faction I don't really know much about.
Howdy, folks! Today I have only one report for you. I was hoping to get in a game against Josh "Newbstomp" Nordstrom as well, but I got there a little late, and my opponent didn't want to play with a clock, so my first game went long enough to preclude any other games, more's the pity.
At any rate, you've no doubt noticed that Vince is a regular opponent of mine. Today he wanted to experiment with Zaal and two Archidons. With Last Stand on them, they'll put out some ridiculous damage. I was excited to get some experience against one of my personal favorite Skorne casters.
For myself, I brought Morv2. Vince had never played against her, and she's generally going to be my Skorne drop, so I thought it was a good idea. She's a good caster, but I won't be very good with her unless I actually practice sometimes!
