The Grubb’s Grenade: Assassination is Dead, Long Live Assassination

Hello all! Welcome to another exciting rant brought to you by the Grubb’s Grenade. Today I want to talk about one of the big reasons I was first attracted to Warmachine: assassinations. Coming from the bad old days of 40K, I was incredibly interested in the ‘kill this one guy, win the game’ mechanic because it provided a way to win the game even when an opponent was able to kill your dude-mans better then you killed his. A player must...

Bringing the Retribution: Surprise vs. Tactics

One of the factors of playing the Retribution is dealing with the general scarcity of other Retribution players. Of course this is relative to everyone’s meta (mine for instance, has about three regular and another two non-regular Retribution players) but for the most part you as a Retribution player are going to be an unknown factor. Even with the ability to read up on factions via the Internet (which I assume some of you are...
