Krueger1 or Krueger2?
At any rate, I've been trying to get him to play against lists that have a lot of shooting lately, as he's my potential shooting drop. He's also (somehow) even better at scenario than Baldur1, and has some good tricks to deal with skew lists. I'm also learning that he's got some really strong assassination potential as well.

Most of my love for him is still theoretical, but so far he's shown to be a really good "problem solver" caster.

At any rate, let's get this show on the road.

Hi all,

FIRST OFF, there's a vote for you at the end of Game 2's report. Either post on this blog, the PP forums, or my Twitter account.

I've skipped reporting a few of my games lately, mainly because I had tournament reports to write and I wanted to make sure I wasn't burning myself out. However, no tournament last weekend meant that I could write these reports without hating life.

And then it's back to 2 or 3 tournaments in a row. And then a period of rest, because the internets can't handle that many reports, lol.

As I've stated in the past, I'm getting tired of using Wurmwood. He's just kind of ... formulaic. And truth be told, whereas I do enjoy winning, I also enjoy exploring corners of whatever faction I play that aren't currently being explored. At least, publicly explored, heh.

I'm trying to find a pairing for the really shooty lists out there, Sloan being one of the top on my list. The unreasonably optimistic part of my wants to believe that Grayle with all his shooting negation and stealth could be an answer. The reasonable side of me thinks

Warmachine Batrep 42: Baldur1 at a 1-caster 75-point Steamroller! (4 total games)

They have a Cheyenne location now too- they're taking over the world :)
Howdy all,
I've got an interesting report for you today! I played at a tournament at Gryphon Games and Comics in Fort Collins, CO (which is my old stomping grounds, if you didn't already know). They just got done with a journeyman league, and were having a 75-point tournament as the culmination of their efforts.

The catch: only one list. I was forced to choose between Wurmwood and Baldur1. In the end, I guess I've felt kind of bored of Wurmwood lately, and I enjoy almost all of my games using Baldur1. And, because any event allowing only one list was going to be prone to mismatches of one sort or another, I decided to take Baldur1.

Better to enjoy 4 games in a row than kind of dread my own feat turn 4 games in a row (people complain about the feat a lot, and take like 20 minutes to figure out what they want to do - I just get to gawk while they do it - kind of an uncomfortable situation if you ask me). At any rate, here's my list:

Rocky Mountain Rumble Videos

Hi all,

As you may or may not know, I recently went to the Rocky Mountain Rumble. The L2Wargame guys were taking videos of games, and I was fortunate enough to not only play one of their number in my Game Four, but also had my Game Five and Six recorded.

Here is the link to my written reports for that event:

Day 1

Day 2

Here is the link to the two video recorded games (assuming you want to hear my ignorant self asking really basic questions about my opponent's forces all game, haha):

Game 5

Game 6

I won't give you spoilers in this post. It's a very cool thing they're doing for the community though. Props to the L2Wargame group for doing this!

Five Circles!

It's been a little bit since I last posted, sorry guys. I traditionally take a little break from blogging after a big event on which I've reported. In the few weeks between the Rocky Mountain Rumble and this local steamroller, I've played a bunch of games with Tanith. Sorry, no reports (I have pictures, so they might go up eventually - don't count on it though.

At any rate, I'll eventually be exploring other Circle casters, but this particular tournament isn't one of those times.

I DID change my lists a little bit though.
