All New Warfare 2016 – Week 36

The Protectorate of Menoth continues its god-like dominance over Gears And Games with Severius leading their righteous crusade! Forces of Mercenaries, led by Gorten Grundback and the Traitor Warlord, Magnus, and Khador, led by Kommander Sorscha and Kommander Orsus Zoktavir, have tried to invade Gears And Games but have failed to even get a substantial foothold in the region. Forces of Cryx and Trollbloods have also been spotted, raiding the outskirts region of Gears And Games. The Soul Weaver, Deneghra, as well as Ragnar Skysplitter and the Hunters Grim, have all made strong attempts to shatter the Protectorate’s hold, but have all been unsuccessful! More and more followers of Menoth flock towards the Gears And Games Grand Cathedral City, built in honor of the Creator!

Battles between the Convergence of Cyriss and Mercenaries have erupted at the House Of Geek! Will these skirmishes break the Legion of Everblight’s control over House Of Geek? Ashlynn D’Elyse have been meeting the forces of the Convergence head on, but have been defeated by the Forge Master Syntherion and the Iron Mother Directrix. The Dark Prince of Umbrey challenged the Forge Master and has successfully repelled the Convergence warcaster in their encounter. With Khador’s vaunted heavy warjacks, Vladimir Tzepesci dispatched what seemed to be the initial construction of a Convergence node.

Posting some results from last Mondays Holiday Rumble.

We tested the Rumble format with:

Vlad1 (me) against Kreoss1 (Ayo). My list primarily was a fun list with some All Star ‘Jack team of Beast-09, Behemoth and Drago. Drago was not as strong as he was though.

After systematically killing Kreoss’ Cinerators, two of the Menite jacks were reduced to one box each with the armor piercing punches from the Behemoth.

In the last turn, Vlad himself charged Kreoss in a caster-to-caster duel which led to Kreoss’ destruction!

Khador wins!

Another game I failed to take pictures of was the one with Plim.

It was a battle between Vlad1 (me) and Syntherion (Paul). I used the same fun list (but the Convergence had a colossal because Plim tried to powergame me).

This game was a very short one because by turn 2 clear charge lanes towards the Prime Axiom from Behemoth and Beast-09 made it so juicy to use Vlad’s feat and boom! We were in the Colossal’s face! Beast-09 bringing the Ice Axe down on the Prime Axiom and dealing severe Pow19 hits while the Behemoth finished the job.

At this point Plim conceded.

I think the Rumble format is a very good Khadoran format.

Third battle was between Pork and Plim. This was Ashlyn (Pork) vs Syntherion (Plim). Was not really watching the game since I was busy battling Kreoss at the time.

Banners of Khador still fly over Charlie Does Manila as forces of the Motherland have begun construction of a railway central station, but a strong Retribution of Scyrah spearhead has been spotted, led by the Incissar of the Dawnguard, Vyros, himself! Forces of the Protectorate of Menoth, as well as Circle Orboros and Minions have been more visible in their invasions into Charlie Does Manila as well! Skorne’s Supreme Aptimus Zaal, Circle Orboros’ Baldur the Stonecleaver have all fallen to Vyros’ Tide Of War! Only the Protectorate of Menoth’s Burning Truth, Malekus, stands defiant in the face of these overwhelming odds!

All New Warfare 2016 – Week 35

One of the rare Sundays where players converge to play, and Warmachine/Hordes Philippines get visitors from Bacolod and Canada! Gears And Games was a full house with Gears And Games/Fortress’ Head Honcho Mike Ang, Kim Navarro, Gino Cobarrubias, Mike Taroy, Dan Tesoro, House Of Geek’s Karlo Piscano, FigAce’s Harold Soon; and from Bacolod, Ruffa Pusta and Dominique Cabrol; and on their honeymoon trip from Canada, Paolo Miguel and Marina Uy (with a very nice gift – a bottle of Sortilege Maple Whiskey)! Good games, good stories and good cheer all around!

Sunday; August 28, 2016 – Gears And Games

Forces of the Protectorate of Menoth only grow stronger with each passing week as they keep their solid hold over Gears And Games! Forces from Khador and the Retribution of Scyrah attempt to expand into Gears And Games from the south, and Mercenary forces continue their attacks, but all have been deftly pushed back!

More traffic, more rain. Charlie Does Manila Warmachine crew still playing Warfare games. What else is new, right? Well, a couple of things: JR Roxas’ Protectorate of Menoth has escalated with the addition of new models, Gino Cobarrubias trying out Garryth, Blade of Retribution, and Manu Rabaglia is taking out his Minions for a spin!

Friday; August 26, 2016 – Charlie Does Manila

Construction of a Khadoran supply port has begun in Charlie Does Manila. Once completed, it will be easier for Khador to reinforce and replenish its war-time resources in that territory. Retribution and Protectorate forces continue to engage the forces of the Motherland and slow its expansion.

Ios has sent another of its warcasters into the fray – this time, Garryth, the Blade of Retribution. He is met with great opposition as the Thornfall warlock, Sturm and Drang, and the Kommandant himself, Gurvaldt Irusk, have joined the theater of war at Charlie Does Manila.

Will Khador continue to hold Charlie Does Manila in its iron fist?

The Protectorate’s Burning Truth, Malekus, has been spotted engaging the Minions’ Sturm and Drang in several skirmishes. What is the Protectorate of Menoth planning? Or is this one of the Thornfall Alliance’s cunning schemes?

Saturday; August 27, 2016 – House Of Geek

The horns of war ring once more as the Convergence of Cyriss, led by the Iron Mother Directrix, assaults a peaceful settlement in the House Of Geek. Coming to the rescue was a Mercenary warband led by Ashlynn d’Elyse herself! But with machine precision, the forces of the Convergence have managed to hold much ground already, as the Mercenaries’ counter attack was too little, too late. Will this battle wake the slumbering forces of the ruling Legion of Everblight?

Gears & Games – Protectorate of Menoth Dominating!

Fighting on both fronts of Charlie Does Manila and Gears & Games, the Protectorate of Menoth have solidified battle plans with dominating both territories. The Testament of Menoth, together with Thyra, Flame of Sorrow, have spearheaded the conquest of Gears & Games and have brought down forces of the Convergence of Cyriss and Trollbloods in their warpath and ending the Cygnar/Mercenaries stalemate! Wracks can be seen, dotting the land, hoisting unbelievers for everyone to see.

Charlie Does Manila – Baldur the Stonecleaver x Vladimir Tzepesci, the Dark Champion

Having familiarity with using Kommander Sorscha (Sorscha1) in my recent games, I decided to try my other warcasters. I have always liked how the sculpt of Vladimir Tzepesci, the Dark Champion (Vlad2), looked, and I heard a lot of good things about the Kayazy Eliminators, so I bodged up a list and went to see for myself. This time around, I played against Manu Rabaglia, Makati B&B/Charlie Does Manila’s resident French Circle Orboros player. Manu wanted to try out using a Woldwarden but he didn’t have the model yet, so he used his Pureblood Warpwolf as a proxy model in our game.

Here’s a breakdown of the lists we used:

Manu’s Circle Army – 75 / 75 points

(Baldur 1) Baldur the Stonecleaver [+31]
– Druid Wilder [4]
– Woldwatcher [9]
– Woldwarden [16]
– Woldwatcher [9]
– Megalith [20]
– Wold Guardian [17]
Lanyssa Ryssyl, Nyss Sorceress [3]
Reeves of Orboros (min) [10]
Shifting Stones [3]
– Stone Keeper [2]
Sentry Stone & Mannikins [5]
Blackclad Wayfarer [4]
Reeve Hunter [4]

Kim’s Khador Army – 75 / 75 points

(Vladimir 2) Vladimir Tzepesci, The Dark Champion [+27]
– Behemoth [24]
– Sylys Wyshnalyrr, The Seeker [4]
Doom Reaver Swordsmen [13]
Great Bears of the Gallowswood [9]
Widowmaker Scouts [8]
Kayazy Eliminators [5]
Kayazy Eliminators [5]
Man-O-War Drakhun [9]
Man-O-War Drakhun [9]
Gobber Tinker [2]
Saxon Orrik [4]
Eiryss, Mage Hunter of Ios [7]

We randomly generated our scenario, and got Recon. He chose a Bunker as his objective, while I had no idea what changes were made to the objectives. I decided to just roll for it, and got Effigy of Valor. Obviously I wasn’t planning on Sun Tzu’ing my game, so I played semi-blind – I just asked some questions like “Does that model have Stealth?” but did not waste time to read all of his cards. There was some spark of excitement while playing that way.

We rolled to see who goes first. Manu got the higher roll and decided to let me go first.

Round 1

Both of us went through the normal jockeying for position moves on the first round. There were no attacks made during the round.

Manu casted some spells, but what I remember was him casting Solid Ground, which reduced the effectivity of my Behemoth’s Bombards. I had my Vladimir Tzepesci cast Arcane Might, Hand Of Fate on the Widowmaker Scouts and Assail on the Behemoth.

Round 2

My Widowmaker Scouts managed to down some of his Reeves of Orboros, even though I forgot I had Hand Of Fate on them. My Doom Reaver Swordsmen pressed forward to the left flag, only to find out that it can only be dominated.

When Manu advanced his Reeves forward on his turn, one of my Man-O-War Drakhuns got a Counter Charge in and messed with his shooting plans. But he did manage to kill one of my Widowmaker Scouts, one of the Great Bears of Gallowswood, and three Doom Reaver Swordsmen. Baldur the Stonecleaver used his Broken Earth feat that turn as well, severely hampering any charges that I would have planned on the following turn.

Round 3

I tried going for his objective this turn with Powerful Attack Bombards, but the I found out that it was a Bunker, and with its Dugout special rule, my shots did very little damage to it. With Arcane Might, my infantry did manage some damage to his constructs, but not enough to cripple them completely. Vladimir Tzepesci advanced behind the Behemoth, preparing to get more ground on the next round.

This is when I discovered the secret of Manu’s list – it was a battlegroup filled with warjacks that have a solid long range threat, either via innate ranged weaponry or Geomancy. Luckily I had three focus left camped on my warcaster, which, with the new Reinforce rule, helped Vladimir Tzepesci survive. Baldur the Stonecleaver had to advance forward to deliver the killing blow with Earth Spike, but was not enough to kill the Khadoran warcaster,

Round 4

With Saxon Orrik’s Reconnaisance, Vladimir Tzepesci advanced and engaged Baldur the Stonecleaver. Casting Martial Paragon. With no more fury points left, the Dark Champion brought down the Circle warlock and scored a victory for the Motherland!

Post game thoughts

What went right?

  • The Counter Charges from the Man-O-War Drakhuns seemed to really affect Manu’s plans.
  • Damage rolls made by Manu were not big enough and were mitigated by Reinforce.
  • I could have done a Blood Legacy win with the Dark Champion, but I figured a Martial Paragon killing blow dealt by Vladimir Tzepesci himself would make for a better winning move. Good thing it worked.

What went wrong?

  • I was too reluctant of getting more board. Playing blind does that LOL
  • Shooting at something with cover from Broken Earth and Dugout? You’re gonna have a bad time.
  • Not knowing that it was a Circle construct predominantly-ranged threat army caught me totally off guard.
