Siege plus Thunderhead = meh

So I've been playing a lot of games with Siege lately, and while I have a fair amount of experience with Cygnar, I haven't played him much until now. I must say he is a powerhouse, but the gobber is a must buy with him. Getting two shots with his rocket launcher is pretty sweet. I sent a bunch of games with him trying to use a Thunderhead for max carnage on his feat turn. However because I can't find any sweet movement tricks to increase the T-head's threat range, I'm going to drop him from my siege lists. Right now my big issue is whether I want to use Long Gunners or Nyss Archers. Both are super sweet units, the Long gunner can fire twice a turn and can also drop a 5" suppressing fire template against stealth infantry. The Nyss are faster, weapon-masters, pathfinders, and hunters but otherwise shoot about the same, but with out the double shot when stationary. Right now I'm leaning towards the Nyss as I've ran into some stealth heavy lists that really limit the Long gunners, while the Nyss are fast enough to attempt to outmaneuver a stealthed force and alpha with weapon-master charges against heavy beasts/jacks. Long Gunners are just so brutal on Sieges feat turn, if you can hit two different targets with there pow 21 CRA. Dice +11 is good against a Khador Jack or Dice +13 on a Cygnar heavy.

I'm back to Cygnar!

I've been playing Cryx lately because there didn't seem to be much happening with them locally, and I wanted to learn them and teach the locals for events outside Game Kastle, our local game store. But I feel I need to start practicing for Kublacon (the best local game convention) and Lock and Load. So after looking at my Cryx, Cygnar, and Trollkin, I have decided to play Cygnar in both events. I'm planning for the Lock and Loaded Masters, so I'm going to focus on three casters, Siege, E-Stryker, and Kraye. I have decent experience with Kraye, Some experience with E-Striker, but I've only had a few games with Siege so I think he's the guy I need to focus on the most. I have a lot of experience with E-Haley, but Figure everyone and there mother will know her tricks, while Kraye and Siege might have some surprise juice, while E-Stryker is well known, but seemingly underplayed, so people might make mistakes against him.

I'll post some lists some time soon.

Ninjahut still Lives.....

Hey all,

I've been busy with the Windless Wastes league and getting my Pressgang on so I didn't get around to posting here. I'm still going strong on Warmachine and I'm currently playing Cryx. Latily I've been trying to learn Epic Skarre and while I do win with her, I still feel like I'm missing something with how I play her. Her Feat is awesomesausce, but that's pretty obvious, her spells are very cool but to my surprise Admontion never seems to do much, as I'm either getting hosed by range, I forget to use it (because it's not important at the time), or my opponent close enough it doesn't matter.

The last tournament ran well, although I used the Finals Table appendix rule for the first time and received some negative feedback. Apparently people don't like there last game to not really matter because 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place where now locked in for the top four players. In the future, if I run a Finals Table round, all run it as a bonus round for the top four and the tournament is finished for other players. Otherwise I had a good time running the event.

As for event info, P-Doomshaper won the 25 point Tier fight under the brillant command of Lance. Way to go Lance! Rhyas took second place with Lat laying down beatdown for Everblight's glory! Epic Sorcha (Henry) and Gorten (Alan) Battling it out for Third place, with Sorcha pulling out the Win.

Lastly I've been Playing DC universe online on the PS3.
I've been enjoying the MMO on a Console experence.
Here is a shot of one of my earlier characters "American Right"
I play in the Crisis Server, contact me if you want to hang online, yo~
