Heavy Metal Dayz Review, Part 1

Category: Battle ReportsWarmaHordes Comments: 2 comments

Its that time of the year again – the Heavy Metal Dayz took place about 2 weeks ago. This is the largest and longest running team tournament in Germany. I have participated in the first one in late 2005 (thats actually how I met Tim) and in the first 5 HMDz. Took a break for a few years and went back in 2013.

So this year Schmerzi – the mascot, drawn by Florian Stitz – proclaimed a Stone Age Smackdown. Bartek, Alex and I went as team “Get off my lawn” (you know because we are old and want all those kids off our lawn – yeah, we’ll change it next year). After going 1-5, 2-4, 2-4 the past 3 years we wanted to be better and go at least 3-3.

Bartek went with Karchev and Butcher 1, Alex with Vyros 2 and Kaelyssa – taking the 4th faction in as many years (Khador, Skorne, Cryx, Ret).

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:

Gun Mages + UA
Gun Mages + UA
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...

Swans it is!

It’s about time, I restart blogging here.

Over 18 months ago, I got back into the game, as you can see in the previous posts. I picked Trolls as my faction for a variety of reasons (not necessarily in that order).

– The models look awesome
– I was able to aquire a significant amount of models from two friends
– The whole thing came fully painted
– I liked the “in your face” playstyle of the Trolls

The whole time I argued, I’d never switch factions or buy a second faction. I didn’t want to develop faction ADD and I loathed the idea of having to buy a complete second faction AND paint it up as well.

On the other hand I said, if I were to ever play another faction, it probably would be Circle...
