It is a new year, and I think that means its time for new Image art. This one is from the forthcoming Cryx Command book, cropped a little to make it easier to use. Let me know what you think! Keep the old one, or move on to this one. However, we have bigger fish to look at, today. 

As I type this, the theme lists have been spoiled, as well as the two new models from the Cryx Command book. I want to take a look at all of it and the spoilers as well, and see what we have brewing, and give my opinions. .

This year, like last year, I will be playing Cryx for the entire calendar year, and likely a 7 month stretch of 2018 as well. This will be the longest stretch I’ve played a single faction in many, many years. Two and a half years in a single faction is a prospect many people can’t really get a handle on. 

I want to put a little twist on how I do it, though. I want to involve my 3 readers, the Cryx community, and any friends I happen to pick up along the way. So, whats the plan you say?

This Saturday, I’ll be going to play in my first tournament in four months. The fantastic John Spencer has picked this one up for me so I can play, and I intend to make the most of it. My real hope is that we have enough players for 4 rounds, though getting there will be tricky: The East Coast is experiencing a but of burnout from New England to Virginia.

That said, Lets take a look at what I’m thinking of bringing. I know it can’t possibly bite me in the ass, right?

Just around a month or so from now, perhaps two, we will be seeing a major errata to Warmachine. This, by all accounts, will be the largest errata ever issued to Warmachine and Hordes. There is some chatter that up to 50% of Skorne is being looked at, as well as the bottom and top 5% of each faction. There is a hope from a significant portion of the community, that this errata is the one that brings the best balance to the game, and everything else from here on out is just knocking out outliers. I feel that this is the likely end result as well, which means that there is significant work on Cryx in the errata.

What do I hope they will address? Lets take a look.

I’ve not been playing a lot of games lately, but I’ve made some progress into my goals. One of the things I wanted to do was to get enough games in with a caster to get their feel before moving onward. I’ve been playing the game and playing cryx long enough to be able to sort out, with a modicum of reliability, how a caster feels and whether or not it plays right, in about 5 games. It doesn’t always give me a taste for the meta and how I utilize it in a tournament, which is a flaw, but I don’t get to enough tournaments to really make it my priority. I do worry about tournament boogeymen, but only in the dojo.

This’ll be my first written battle report with Goreshade 2, and its with the last iteration in his final game before Terminus.
