I’ve been playing an awful lot of Coven lately. All of the facets aligned to make me bring them out of retirement in MK 3, and now that I’ve played for longer than a month or so, I’m enjoying how the play and their general prominence in the Cryxian lineup. I’ve only got two tournaments under my belt, but I’m looking to get a few more here over the winter, to which they figure to play a prominent part.

That said, I really need to settle down on a pairing for them. I have a few ideas that I want to try out, one of which, Feedbackapalooza, I’ve already started playing around with. Lets see what my brain is crunching on!

The Coven, as ones who have perused this column on more than a slight occasion will have noticed, are getting a lot of play from me. Its not a situation unique to me, or my meta. The Coven are getting the nod from players -those that are left of our now decimated population – across the country. I’ve opened dialogue with a few of them, and many are of the same mindset. The Coven is the answer to the gunline.

I disagree. Come, let me explain. This one is a little wordy and rambling, so be warned.

The Witch Coven has not been an easy start to MK 3 for me. I’ve been playing them now for just shy of three months and only recently has the style and method of the caster really solidified. Their methodology, while I’ve said a lot here, I seem to always have something to learn about them, about how they play, and about what their goals and desires are. While I’ve a few more games to go yet before I’m done with them (except for tournaments, I Hope their a staple for years to come), I want to take some time and get onto paper what I’ve thought about them. Continue reading

As I’ve mentioned more than a few times, Last weekend was the NOVA Open down in DC (5 minutes from the airport and IN a hotel. Check it out next year!). While I was busy leading most of the time, I attempted to get two games in. The first game on Thursday was a bust, but Saturday night I had some unexpected free time. Anthony from Frozen Kommander was walkin’ around looking for Iron Arena games, so we sat down and got to it!

Its been a while.

I very much wanted to write something up before I left for NOVA, but it just wasn’t going to be. Between packing and verifying everything I would need to make sure WM and Hordes ran smoothly all weekend, I was unable to really get any solid train of thought rolling. I also knew I needed to get some sleep to buffer out the lack I was going to encounter shortly thereafter.

How did it all go? Well, keep reading! I’ll list all the winners at the bottom!

Prime Options

I’m not going to lie. This entire article was triggered by a single tweet. The author was curious when 3e would collapse into optimal lists.  The topic, though, is more complex than twitter can possibly contain without being on the damned thing all day. So, Here I am, writing about options, balance, and warmachine as the hours I should be asleep wind away. Come, join me as I ramble on!

We have just over two weeks until the rules for the 3rd edition of Warmachine officially drop at Lock and Load, and I’m excited that I am going to be there to try and get some games in on Sunday with the new rules, but I am also excited to play the last few tournaments with MK II before I roll into the new game full bore.

I’ve talked a bit about what I am going to play when I get there, and I have had some significant experience playing with the casters I am going to work with, until recently when the 3rd edition announcement made me giddy to get some games in with casters I’ll never see again. Fortunately, I’ll get some serious playtime at Lock and load both with the new rules and with the old, so I don’t really worry that I’ve not used my chosen pairing recently.

What about Cryx, though, in 3rd edition?

I’ve been excited since the announcement of 3rd edition Warmachine for over a month. Its three weeks until it launches at Lock and Load, and I have consumed a staggering amount of information on the changes that are coming, both upwards and downwards.

Its not that I’m down on third edition, though, Its that my expectations have changed a lot since the original announcement, and I really just want it to be over.
