Warmachine Batrep 26: Circle (Baldur1) vs. Retribution (Vyros2) 50 Points, lots of pictures!

Howdy, folks! Another day, another report! I got this game in last Thursday, but things have been a little crazy in my world, and I only now have some time to actually write up the game.

Actually, I got in a 2nd game as well (Issyria vs. Morv2), but I won't be reporting it, as:

1)My phone for some reason only kept 3 of the pictures from the game

2)I had Issyria on the ropes - not much she could do, when I forgot a simple light cavalry move, which allowed Eiyriss3 to shoot Morv's 4 camped fury off, which let the mage hunter assassins shoot her to death, despite elevation.

Not really an exciting game, especially when you can't see the pictures for it. Just suffice it to say that Don did beat me fair and square, but you won't be getting a report for it :)

Moving on to this game though, let's set the stage just a little bit. After the break.

Warmachine Batrep #25: IMC Tournament Report - 50 points, three casters (Circle - Morv2, Krueger2, Cassius) (with pictures!)

NOT my picture - I stole it shamelessly from Facebook. Pretty awesome kid!
Last weekend (September 13, specifically), I went to the Inter-Mountain Cup (IMC) in Ogden, Utah. The IMC is a Masters-style tournament that happens twice every year in the same area (it can apparently change venues, so long as said venue is near to Salt Lake). It has 64 people attend it every year, and it's a 1-day event.

Let's say that again.

It's a 1-day event. That means 6 total games of Warmachine without a single break, even for dinner. You play 6 games straight.

This was my first Masters event, and I brought Circle (my only army). Lists and such after the break.

Warmachine Batrep #24: SR Tournament Report - 50 points, two casters (Circle - Morv2 + Krueger2) (with pictures!)

Howdy, everyone! Today I have a tournament report from a local(ish) Steamroller event I attended last Saturday. This was my 3rd tournament since I've gotten back into the game, and would be great practice for the IMC next weekend.

I only own Circle, so that was obviously going to be my faction. However, I've been toying with several different lists and casters. I finally decided on Krueger2 and Morvahna2 as my two casters, since they're two of my three casters I will be taking to IMC next weekend (Cassius being my 3rd). Lists and reports after the jump!

Warmachine Batrep #23: Circle (Cassius) vs. Syntherion, Rasheth, Irusk2 (3 games total)

It's Rasheth!
Howdy, folks! Another few reports today. I'm sorry to say that I do not have any reports from Tacticon, because Tacticon didn't happen. The events were canceled, and though I was very disappointed about it and the details surrounding it, I have decided not to dwell on it, and will give you no further information on the subject :)

The good news is that because Tacticon failed me, I was able to convince my wife into letting me go to a tournament this coming weekend in Denver. Should be fun. Then, the weekend after that, I will be going to the IMC. This ties in directly with why I'm writing these reports - I just wanted some experience with Cassius. Let's do the jump, after which I will explain a little better.
