This week we’re doing another time-warp episode doing analysis on Todd’s tournament results.
I really enjoy doing these episodes, and I’m looking forward to doing another batch of them soon (I’m running another tournament in February, and then there’s the Ontario Team Championships, another tournament in April… lots of batreps, lots of analysis, lots of good things!).
Anyway! Give a listen, and remember that the analysis and tournament were both pre-Errata! Heck, we recorded the first half pre-Winter-holidays!
Another battle report coming your way from the COMBO SMITE crew. This week Darrell (aka Not-Todd) took a break from his Trollbloods and busted out his Protectorate forces to face off against Todd (aka Not-Darrell) and his Retribution in a 50pt battle.
You’ll all have to excuse the pun in the title… I am a man of simple pleasures (and a simple mind, obviously!).
This week for the podcast I was granted the pleasure of tangling blades and bombs against Todd’s Retribution. Mostly, it was an excuse for me to either get a Judicator on the table (I loves me my Judicator) or High Reclaimer Silent Bob (who I have never tried yet, but looks super-awesome-fun!).
Also in this week’s podcast, Nick starts painting his Galleon (which I believe I will nickname “Your Doom”), Aaron discusses Deathclocking his opponents by accident, and Todd takes beautiful pictures!
Last weekend we traveled down the road to Hamilton today to compete in the Youngbloods tournament taking place alongside the Southern Ontario Open Master’s tournament as you may have heard about in our last podcast. Apparently this was the largest Warmachine tournament ever held in Canada at 88 participants. Pretty impressive.
We, however were entered in the Youngbloods, which is a smaller scale 35 pt tournament targeted more at newer players, which may not accurately describe us but we are still bad enough that we fit in just fine. It was only 14 players which is significantly less than 88 but still the largest tournament I or any of the Combosmite crew have participated in. Continue reading →
It was my turn to be on the podcast this week. We have started doing random pairings in our gaming group lately which I like because it reduces the chance of getting listed. I was matched against Kassem this week. I hope you guys aren’t get too sick of seeing Ret V.s Skorne.
We all brought two 35 pt lists in preparation for the upcoming “Youngbloods” tournament taking place alongside the Southern Ontario Open master’s event. My lists were eVyros and Ossyan. Kassem’s were pMorghoul and Xerxis.
This weekend the Combo Smite team played in our first official Steamroller tournament. The tournament took place last weekend at a local game store in London, The Game Chamber. (PLUG!!) It was a 35pt Steamroller 3 list required and during list selection your opponent vetoes one of your lists and you get to pick from the remaining two.
As this was my first tournament I was not very on the ball with taking photos every turn but hopefully its enough to get the gist of the games.
I brought Ravyn, eVyros and Ossyan as my 3 lists.
