Okay, this is much less of a time-travel than originally expected… see, we were SUPPOSED to record another podcast this week, but SOMEBODY (cough-Todd-cough) had to go and see some band in Toronto.
“Can’t Tie” or “Glideloop” or “Skidhitch” or something like that. So as a result, we’re using our banked Podcast for this week, and we’ll use this week’s podcast for NEXT week and oh dear I’ve gone cross-eyed…
As mentioned on this week’s podcast (gosh, I hope I get these written up by the end of the week now!), Nick and I attended the final Store Wars qualifying event at the Hobby Kingdom in Burlington on Saturday.
You’ve heard the podcast… now you can see the battles and read the blow-by-blow(ish) of the games! Excitement! Danger! Adventure! Really interesting applications of Saeryn’s Grievous Wounds!
Today’s match up is between, actually its in the title you lazy reader. It won’t be an easy match up, there’s a lot I should be worried about. Soul denial is rampant in Legion since it’s so beast heavy and the fact that soulless is a thing. Saeryn’s feat is somewhat insane. Not sure how that one managed to slip through the cracks. Probably the same quality control that brought you Haley2 and Denny2. I guess by the time eSkarre came along they fired that person, because as I mentioned her feat is like eSkarre on crack! So I have a tough game ahead of me, most likely filled with adventure, heated skirmishes, and intense battles. Strap yourself in for the ride of a life time!
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.
Welcome back fan, and mom. Thank you for reading. Playing againts Ret today. I can’t say I’m happy to see them back in our meta after Nick threw them to the curb, but I’m not overly scared either. Any gun line is scary for Cryx ,and Ret, well, they shoot in their sleep. Lucky (or maybe unlucky) for me Todd is playing a melee heavy jack spam.
We received a listener e-mail a few weeks ago. Mike requested a full month of Farrow-themed battle reports… to which we responded…
“Does anyone know anyone who plays Farrow!?”
A huge thank you to Tim (from Arcane Assist) for helping out as literally the *only* person who plays Farrow in Southern Ontario! Go Tim! And another big thank you to Black Knight Games in Hamilton, Ontario, for hosting our match!
Throughout this battle report, you’ll see me using the exceptional Team Canada zone markers. They are available from many Team Canada members for $50 for a set of 4 (2 circles and 2 rectangles), and I can’t recommend them enough. I bought 2 sets myself for running tournaments! Continue reading →
The dust has settled. The armies have been packed up. The tables are stacked away. The beer has finally been flushed from the collective systems of 200-odd WarMachine and Hordes players.
It is time for the post-Southern Ontario Open wrap up.
Throughout the pictures I took, you’re going to see some awesome zone-markers I bought in support of Team Canada (I bought 2 complete sets for running tournaments, and to help our boys get to Ireland). Please support Team Canada’s WTC funding efforts in your local area (assuming you can find somebody selling them! They’re awesome!). Continue reading →
Todd and Nick also played a game for the podcast this week… I’m hoping we can record that one later and use it later (because more podcasts are always better!), but we didn’t have time before Monday morning. But still, a good podcast! Continue reading →
