Warmachine & Hordes Szczecin Meeting #3

Introduction

Hello friends, today we have met for the third time in local gaming store Wrota for our Warmachine & Hordes Szczecin meeting. The new awesome thing that happened was the introduction of Company of Iron, the Privateer Press skirmish set in the Warmachine & Hordes setting.
So, I have played a game with my Stryker2 list against Issyria run by Elros. Next, Gomez came with the mentioned Company of Iron and have played a game Cygnar vs Trolls.

The Game

After the total destruction and failure of my first attempt to play Stryker2 with 2 lances during the Poznań Masters Tournament I decided to give the list a second try. So here's the deployment. My plan is to run towards the enemy,  see what survives and only then consider some remaining options. Here's the deployment.
Cygnar vs Retribution
First round, Adam pushes everything forward just outside my threat ranges of Lances. In return I push forward and on the right flank kill two pesky Mage Hunters. Stryker sits behind Rowdy on the hill camping all the focus.
Cygnar vs Retribution 1
So this how the table looked before Elros started to slaughter my units. All in all, Issyria popped her feat and after all his activations only two lances and Laddermore remained in play. Stormblades were reduced to a 3 man unit plus the solo. All jacks were ok with Rowdy getting some light damage. It could have been worse but the dice were not in favour of the elves.
Cygnar vs RetributionOk, my turn. See that Chimera under the forest? Perfect. +1 Focus from Squire. Stryker gets March from Rhupert, charges the Chimera, Velocity x3 he is now in range to butcher Issyria. Overload +5. Still 3 hits are needed to finish his caster.
Cygnar vs RetributionThis is how it ended. After that we decided to try put Stryker where he was and put the Chimera a bit further away to see what would happen if I couldn't kill Issyria this turn. To make a long story short we have butchered each other. I have managed to clear the left flank completely and kill all his jacks but Elros managed to kill Stryker who was left on 0 after charging his heavy. It was fun.

Company of Iron

After Elros left Gomez came with Company of Iron rules and we played a 20pts game against each other. Martini was helping us out with the rules and learning at the same time. I will post some pictures under the text but I must say the game itself is a blast. Played on a 3x3 table that can be full of 3d terrain with a minimum amount of miniatures that activate one after another it is fast paced and full of excitement. I have been slaughtered but that does not matter because it was so much fun were going to play it for sure next time and maybe then I will post a battle report.




That would be all, see you next week for more Warmachine & Hordes Szczecin meetings reports.

Warmachine & Hordes online community... to contribute or not...

Hello friends,
for some time now, I have been thinking about writing a post about the online Warmachine & Hordes community. However, I could not find the proper questions I would like to ask and try to answer. I did not know if I should actually even produce this kind of an analysis that by all means is going to be really subjective in nature. Some people might feel offended others might start to argue that I am not right when it comes to the conclusions but then I remembered one good ol' video... plus we basically have the freedom of speech...


So, if you have understood anything from the delusional tinkering I have written above and seen the short video... let's begin.
I have been blogging for about 6 years now. There have been some up & down moments during the process itself but I can say that for the above mentioned period I have been a part of the tabletop bloggers network (we are not a cult). For about 2,5 years I have been slowly focusing on Warmachine & Hord…
