Heavy Metal Dayz 2016

Category: WarmaHordes Comments: No comments

Its been nearly 2 years since my last post and since I switched from Trolls to Cygnar after the EU Masters in 2014. Here are a few stats of my success with the Swans. All of that was prior to MK 3.

Games Total 246
Wins 74
Losses 172
Ratio 30,08%
Tournament Games 137
Wins 47
Losses 90
Ratio 34,31%

Since I played both versions of Allister Caine from September 2015 to about May of 2016 pretty much exclusively, these are obviously my most played and most successful casters.

With Caine 1 I played this theme force – Sons of the Tempest:

Caine
Ace
Gun Mages + UA
Hunter
Hunter
Gun Mages + UA
Hunter
Hunter
Tempest Blazers
Black 13th

And boy was that a lot of fun. I made it a point after SmogCon in February to drop this list into as much stuff as I could and had some really great matches. Too bad, I can’t continue to use that exact list (let alone the tier boni) in MK 3 – yet. I hope that the new SotT (they already said it will be available in MK 3 as well) will be as fun as this one.

The Heavy Metal Dayz are starting today. Its the first MK 3 tournament for me, thus far I have only played about 25 practice games. I am taking Caine 2 (who is just bonkers insane in MK 3 and is the most played caster at the tournament) and Maddox.

Its a team tournament, so whatever holes I have in the matchups, I hope my team mates (Retribution and Khador) can cover.

These are the lists:

Caine2 (Captain Allister Caine) (-27 Pts.)
* Stormclad (18 Pts.)
* Ol’ Rowdy (18 Pts.)
* Reinholdt, Gobber Speculator (4 Pts.)
Rangers (9 Pts.)
Storm Lances (Leader and 4) (20 Pts.)
Trencher Cannon Crew (6 Pts.)
Gun Mage Captain Adept (5 Pts.)
Eiryss, Mage Hunter of Ios (7 Pts.)
Rhupert Carvolo, Piper of Ord (4 Pts.)
Tempest Blazers (Leader and 2) (11 Pts.)

Objective: Fuel Cache

Maddox1 (Major Beth Maddox) (-30 Pts.)
* Hammersmith (12 Pts.)
* Stormclad (18 Pts.)
* Sylys Wyshnalyrr, the Seeker (4 Pts.)
Storm Lances (Leader and 4) (20 Pts.)
Stormblade Infantry (10 Pts.)
* Stormblade Infantry Officer & Standard (5 Pts.)
* 3 Stormblade Infantry Storm Gunner (6 Pts.)
Captain Arlan Strangewayes (4 Pts.)
Gun Mage Captain Adept (5 Pts.)
Journeyman Warcaster (4 Pts.)
* Firefly (8 Pts.)
Stormblade Captain (5 Pts.)
Lanyssa Ryssyll (3 Pts.)

Objective: Effigy of Valor

Since there basically is no meta right now, I only have a vague idea of what list goes against what. Maddox can deal quite a bit of damage, especially on feat turn. The Hammersmith can threat really far and has follow up on his slams.

Caine 2 is just, well, Caine. He doesn’t give a fuck usually and will just murder everything in reach or just Trick Shot a caster to death (have done that numerous times already).

Tune in next week, when I will post battle reports of all my games.
