Beermachine: The Lock & Load 2016 Project

I’m going to keep this short. Our co-host JP has been diagnosed with ALS about a year ago. Rather than be a bunch of sad pandas, we want to stay true to Beermachine form and make sure he has a much fun as possible while he still can. We have a Kickstarter to get us to Lock & Load to record the best episode ever, with stretch goals of GenCon and Warmachine Weekend. Rather than make this a charity event, we decided to have...

Building the Masons – Tower

Building the Masons – Tower

The next man out of the dugout for the Masons is Tower, who can actually be a better bodyguard than Brick, for half the size. Stats MOV – At 5”/8” Tower is one of the quicker Masons and can easily keep up with everyone else on the team. TAC – 5 is average for most players, so nothing exciting to say other than he does like knocked down models a lot. KICK – A 3/6” is pretty good. He makes a decent kicker of the ball; the bonuses from...

Building the Masons – Flint

What can I say about Flint? Our charming out-and-out striker needs no introduction. He appears to be one of the few “ever presents” in my line-ups, and you’ll soon see why. As one of the game’s pure strikers he possesses all the key aspects to make him one of the best out there, if not the best. Stats MOV – With values just shy of Honour, at 5/8” Flint is still very mobile. He can outpace most of the players on the Butchers or Brewers...

Building the Masons – Brick

The big man of the Masons, Brick certainly hits like his namesake. Stats MOV – At 4”/6” Brick is slow, but he does come with a 2” Melee to make his threat larger. He needs to sit pretty central to the crew, keeping charge lanes open as we will see. TAC – 5 is average for most players in Guild Ball, and he is no different. KICK – At 1/6” he is rubbish with the ball, so you probably don’t want him doing too much with it (although...

Building the Masons – Harmony

Harmony, younger sister of the team captain, has a lot to live up to. Her sister Honour was highly sought after for her leadership skills after the War, and it’s only so long you can stay in someone else’s shadow before it’ll start to swallow you up. Harmony doesn’t need the excitement and thrill of the Game like her sister; she sees it as a means to an end. With rich dignitaries, princes and guild masters being so involved in the...

Rack City: Super Series and Denny 3

Welcome back for another Rack City, where I delve deep into my experiences with the Cryx faction.  This article I will be focusing on my performance at the Super Series final, Australia’s equivalent of WMW.     I was not expecting to perform overly well at this event, given that I had spent the majority of the leadup time playing Guild Ball.  In fact, I had only a single practice game, after which I basically rewrote my list and...
