Caine 3… with a Vengeance!

Category: Battle ReportsWarmaHordes Comments: No comments

Last sunday, our local shop, the Drachental, held another 16 man steamroller event. We tested the SR 2017 again, with the latest update provided by the PP Insider a couple of weeks ago. Which meant the “mercy rule” was changed to 5+ points instead of 6+ and solos didn’t score round zones anymore, but flags.

I planned on bringing my Haley 2 / Caine 1 pairing to the event.

I have been playing Caine extensively since Mark II. All told, I have played Caine 1 and Caine 2 in 157 games over two editions. Most recently, that Caine 1 list helped me to my 4-2 finish at Nordisch Masters. I had lots of memorable games. There was the time I trick-shotted Haley 2. Or Kara Sloan. Or very nearly Amon...

Then and now: A Warmachine career

Category: Battle ReportsWarmaHordes Comments: One comment

Its 2006. Heavy Metal Dayz 2. The last game. My choir boy (I played Protectorate of Menoth back then) battled a Cygnar-employed Rhupert Carvolo. It was a fierce battle, the details of which escape my memory. What I do remember was that this battle between two minor characters on the battle field would decide who won that game and who lost. The loser would go on to get a trophy… the one for last place.

You can see the trophy (and thus the result of that battle) on the left in the photo below. For those very few of you who don’t understand German colloquialisms – Kacknoob just means “Shit noob”. I am still proud of that trophy and still display it in my appartment. My attitude towards the game has changed a bit and now I am trying to chase more trophys like the other one in that photo.

Fratzengeballer

So after a hiatus of about a month I finally played some Warmachine again last week. This time at our club – something we call “Fratzengeballer”. You can’t really translate that properly into english. It basically means, “getting your face bashed in”.

We were 12 people. My Siege list still needed 1 game, so I brought that. And I tested out a brand new Stryker 2 list, which I “borrowed” from the Belgians. Although my Nemo 1 list still has 4 games to go, I decided to bring this Stryker list:

Stryker2 -28
– Stormclad 18
– Thorn 13
Journeyman Warcaster 4
– Firefly 8
Storm Lances (Leader and 4) 20
Storm Lances (Leader and 4) 20
Major Katherine Laddermore 8
Major Harrison Gibbs 4
Ragman 4
Rhupert Carvolo, Piper of Ord 4

Objective: Fuel Cache

Since this was a 3 r...
