Fratzengeballer 2

Category: Battle ReportsWarmaHordes Comments: No comments

On the first weekend of June, my club (Headblast in Oberhausen) held a small Steamroller, the second edition of the Fratzengeballer (#1 was back in January). 18 people came and we decided to try the SR 2017 rules. Since I was too lazy to assemble a few Hunters for my Kara Sloan list, and since the pairing had served me well at the Nordisch Masters three weeks earlier, I brought Haley 2 and Caine 1 again.

Nordisch Masters, Part I

Category: Battle ReportsWarmaHordes Comments: 2 comments

Last weekend, Bartek, Samir, Alex and I went north to the Nordisch Masters in Bremen, where we wanted to find out who would become the new King in the North! Its May, so Winter isn’t coming for a good long while – and thats enough with the GoT references.

Nordisch Masters is a 64 player Masters event that is always fully booked. It usually attracts the elite of Germans Warmachine scene to Bremen to fight until only one was left. No matter our goals at the tournament, it would be a tough ride – just because there were so many good players attending.

Since I had quite a bit of success with the list, I brought Haley 2 in Heavy Metal to the tournament. It gave me my first ever tournament victory a while back and suits my playstyle really well.

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.

Heavy Metal Dayz Review, Part 2

Category: Battle ReportsWarmaHordes Comments: No comments

This is part 2 of my Heavy Metal Dayz review – if you haven’t read the first part, click here.

Previously on “Caine’s crazy adventure”: I went 2-1 in the first 3 rounds of the tournament, getting tabled once, winning by scenario once and Trick-shotting Haley 2 to death in the third game. Crazy as it sounds, we as a team were undefeated at that point – one of 6 teams.

Which brings me to:

Game 4 – The ‘It is still a dice game’ Game

We draw team “Diced Cocks”, a few Warhammer converts (who did quite well in Warhammer I am told). And we also draw the video table. You can watch my game here, and if you go to Page5.de’s Channel you can watch the rest of our coverage at Heavy Metal Dayz.

Anyways – we pair off: Cygnar vs. Ret (me), Khador vs. Skorne (Bartek) and Ret vs...

Bonehammer’s Brewery: Going .500!

Category: Battle ReportsWarmaHordes Comments: No comments

Ironhide grew desperate. The Menites were closing in. To his right the Avatar of Menoth was lingering and terrorizing his troops. Up front one of his full blood trolls had just succumbed to a Dervish slicing him up. His champions had died one by one. Nearly all of his Kriel Warriors were already gone. It wouldn’t be long before his troops were overrun and defeated.

It was time for one last play. He send a few of the scribes towards the Avatar, to prevent the hulking machine from crushing his right flank completely. Then he spotted something through the bushes and hedges. Moving closer he saw Amon, the Menite warcaster, just standing there, his chain ball at the ready.

Madrak saw his lone chance to turn the table in this battle. He inched forward and gathered all his strength. He picked up Rathrok, heaved it over his head and threw it at Amon. The look on the enemy warcasters face was one of total suprise as suddenly a huge axe struck him dead center in the chest.

Madrak just sunk to the ground, happy to have survived this ordeal. He rallied what was left of his troops and secured the area. The Menites were retreating in complete shock after the loss of their leader.

The a...

Bonehammer’s Brewery: Gunny vs. Menoth and Skorne

Category: Battle ReportsWarmaHordes Comments: No comments

Krul looked back through the underbrush towards Captain Gunnbjörn. The troll warlock started an invocation while walking over to him, Krul could see the faint glow of the runes. Then he felt a surge of energy go through him. Both his scope and his rifle started glowing for a moment before fading back to that rusted brown.

Krul nodded and turned to his men. Putting his scope to his eye he surveyed the enemy lines. Inexplicably the enemy warcaster had exposed himself some in the middle of the enemy formation. Not something Krul would have expected from the old man.

The Bushwhacker leader gave his men a sign and as a unit they moved forward. Coming into view of the enemy he could see them starting to realize their mistake. But before the Menites could do anything, he ordered his men to aim and fire on Severius.

Adding all their strength to his own shot, Krul carefully aimed at the warcaster and the unit let loose one giant volley.

When the smoke cleared he couldn’t see Severius anymore. What he saw was his subordinates frantically running towards their leader, their warjacks powering down and most of the troops turning away and leaving the battle field.

“I think we are done here” Krul said to his men. They turned around and walked back to their kin.
