Countercharge ep9 Madrak1

Posted by on 9:58 am

Countercharge is a Warmachine/Hordes dojo & battle report podcast. The format of the shows will be two parts. Part one, we will explore a warcaster or warlock and build lists. Then in part two we will actually play those lists and see how well our ideas are on the table. The goal of the podcast is to provide more than just “theory-machine”. We are based out of Iowa City, Iowa and you can find pictures of our games on www.midwestwargaming.com In this episode we challenge the popular opinion that Madrak1 is bad and we dive deep into the original unkillable warlock. Mike and I build two lists in part one and banter on theme forces and then in park two we go over two different battle reports.

Klaw Plays Trolls: The Salt Business is a Growth Business

Posted by on 5:06 am

Added disclaimer: Despite any ideas the title might give you, there is much saltyness ahead. The state of things At this time, I feel there are three factions clearly ahead of the pack – Cygnar, Circle and Retribution. They have answers to (or are) the main boogeymen in the game, and have multiple casters to make a caster pair from. Additionally, they can develop multiple playing styles on a meta-strategic level, as in, multiple roads to achieve victory. Within a list, or within the faction1. The second group hang in there, mostly by virtue of one caster. I might be selling Menoth short when I say they are only part of the fun thanks to High Reclaimer, but for Minions (Rask) and Khador (Karchev) I don’t think I am wrong. The exception here would be Mercenaries, who have Ossrum, but who don’t rely on him to be competitive, with other options like Magnus2, variations to Kingmaker, and Cephalyx. These factions have answers, have boogeymen, but their choice of casters and ways to achieve victory is more narrow. Post-errata, Khador clearly fell off the wagon, and when it comes to Minions, it remains to be seen whether they can stay ahead of the third group, which is … the sad group: Trolls, Cryx, Legion, Convergence and Skorne. The sad group The sad group all have plenty of fun options, when playing against other members of the sad group. When facing the real boogeymen, they just come up short. I haven’t seen or heard from a list that gives Cryx a 50% game into Cygnar, be it Haley2, Sloan or Stormlance spam. I haven’t seen or heard about a list that gives Trolls a 50% game into heavy control lists, be it Haley2 or Wurmwood2. Additionally, and this is what makes the sad group extra sad – they don’t have multiple approaches to the game. It’s most clear in Trolls, as very aptly put forward by the guys on the Moot Point podcast: they play too fair a game. Trolls don’t stop their opponent from doing anything. Both players do what they do, and the Troll player just hopes to come out on top. This is problematic, because strategy games revolve around … well … playing unfairly. Applying a larger part of your force to a smaller part of your opponent’s force, leaving them to fight your entire army with only a part of theirs. Trolls can’t really do that. They have no cloud walls, no control feats, no devastating shooting options, they … just hope you can’t kill them fast enough. I know, I’m selling the faction short, but … Too often, when playing against the first tier of factions, the game revolves around: “Can you kill me?” 3 The thing is, that used to be the case in MK2 as well. The only reason Trolls were competitive back then, is because, well, people generally couldn’t kill them. Three ARM 22 (or 23 on Mulg) heavies behind Janissa’s wall, weapon master Warders at ARM21 with 8 boxes and tough, that kind of stuff. Add a guaranteed alpha with Burrowers, and you had a game. In Mk3, PP removed the worst options (probably for the best of the game), but put nothing in return. The little alternative options Trolls had (Grissel1,...
