Steve and I played our third game of Warmachine last Wed. May 5. It was a 35 point game. I was sure of the outcome, but only because I am still learning how to use my army in the best ways possible. Steve's army consisted of Skarre and an assorted group of units and models that had so much stuff on them it made my head hurt. What can you do when you can't target a model, can't damage a model, and have the weight of a deathjack breathing down your neck?
I have decided to set mini goals for my games. My goal for this one was to see how my Assault Kommandos worked and to see what would happen if I changed up my jacks a bit. I actually learned more about jacks than the Kommandos, but only from watching how my own got wrecked by a combination of solo work and the Deathjack. I got quite frustrated because the things I thought I could do never worked out. Most of the time I just had an incomplete understanding of the rules. I feel a lot more solid on that point, now.
After the game, we posted on the Privateer Press forums to get some ideas for fighting Khador vs. Cryx. I have to say, that forum is fantastic. Lots of great ideas and very helpful gamers. privateer press forums. Also, Steve should have a writeup of the battle with much more detail. Steve's Blog. The pictures below capture the grandeur of my defeat. I remain restrained in my discouragement. There is always next time.
