Klaw goes WTC: The top 10 teams identified, again!

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is that time of year again. The biggest, baddest, thrillingest, coolest, and other superlativest Warmachine and Hordes event of the year is almost upon us, which makes it my solemn duty to … predict the winners, like I did last year. The setup of the survey is simple: ask all teams that went 5-1 or better last year, which teams they think will go 5-1 this year. To add some spice, I asked them for a dark...

Klaw Plays Trolls Pt 11: Ending the world

While a previous instalment had some thoughts on the most criminally underplayed warlock in the faction, I’ll continue with her soon-to-be ADR buddy Madrak2. As far as power level and underplaying go, he’s not very far behind1. My post-2015WTC experience with the World Ender started at the Belgian Masters XXX, by far the sexiest tournament on the planet.

Klaw Plays Trolls Pt 10: The Dojo of Doom

However psyched as I am about the ADR roster for the first half of 2016, there is still something to be said about the current roster. Especially since our good friend Doomshaper decided to go all prophet on us.   With this guy on the roster, the current popular pair of Runes of War and Evolutionary Elementalism could become even more problematic. It can turn into EE with 20 points of extra obnoxious, coupled with Runes with Fire...

Klaw Plays Trolls pt 9: Guess Who’s Back!

Grissel. Grissel is back, I was never gone. Anyway. We had this little Steamroller event last Saturday, relaxed atmosphere, single list, 42 points. I wanted to play Trolls again, it’s the time of year that still qualifies as “after the WTC”, so it was time for a trip to the dojo. Trolls are in a very strange place nowadays. It seems that Flanzer’s legacy continues to linger1, and that the only recent release...

Klaw Goes WTC: The Top 10 Teams Identified

It’s a sunny Friday afternoon, I’m mucho interested in doing things that aren’t work. I spy a certain Rickard on my Facebook chat, and strike up a conversation on which teams we think will go 5-1 at the coming WTC. I nominate them, Rickard gets in a yay or a nay. We come up with the following list: USA Stars, USA Stripes, Australia Wombat, Scotland Irn, Sweden Nobel and Germany Dichter Denker. It was a fun...
