Each year, I author an event called Brawltimore in my local area. This year, for the first time, I managed to also qualify. While a friend and awesome organizer ran the event, I had the privilege of playing, and played four great opponents in four awesome rounds.

I find that many times, Making lists is a very boring endeavor. Because of themes we have a fairly set regimen of what is known good, what is known to be mediocre, and what is considered the unplayable. It feels, fairly often, that all you’re doing is swapping casters within the known lists. This week, though, I’ve spent a lot of time in the dojo making lists, and it feels very strange.
I’m taking a break from the introductory posts to how to play Cryx to take a look at the January Dynamic Update for Warmachine, the largest portion of which dealt with Cryx models. I’m just going to go over it model by model and give my, granted, two day old, opinions.
The Necrotechs Workshop: 2018
Over the last year I had my articles pretty well delineated for me. The Tour took up most of my writing and much of my play time. Now, with the tour over and the new year coming forward, I’ve got a very strange and powerful feeling: Freedom. I don’t really know what to do with it.
For a certain segment of players, Lock and Load brought out a bunch of cool previews. Theme force Previews were among the largest, with Cryx, Legion, Khador, and Blindwater Congregation getting the most information regarding future themes. Additionally, it was revealed that each faction would be getting a model around Christmastime, hopefully every year, to ease a bit of the pain of not getting something on a regular basis. While many of these things were cool, I’m really excited about the Cryx stuff, because its what I am going to play. Lets take a look!
Well, Here we go.
This is one of the fastest I have ever turned around a caster, and I’m pretty happy with it. Is Morty 2 perfect? Nope, but she is really fun, has some great tricks, and feels good.
Recently, last week, actually, the Bane CID started. It began with the Theme force and a number of substantial changes to many of the Bane models, and continued the refinement this week. Additionally, this coincided with both the SR CID and the Battle Engines CID. I won’t talk much about SR this week – I will save that for next week when the final change log comes out, but I do want to talk about the Cryx Changes. Welcome back – to the Necrotechs Workshop!
On Feb 4th, I played in my first tournament of the year, and I was stoked going into it. I’d not played in a competitive environment since around December, and I was looking forward to putting Scaverous on the table for the first time. I’d paired him with Skarre 2, because I knew a friend of mine was not going to be at the tournament, so the chances of a lethal Kara Sloan list was pretty low. It was a quick three rounder. Each rounds recap after the break!
Every once in a while, the timelines of when I am going to do events and when I write won’t exactly mesh. During those times, I’m just gonna try and write up what I need to and get it out. So, here we go! Scaverous – First Look.
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?
