WARMACHINE Weekend Round Up

So much for being a better poster!

Just got back from WARMACHINE Weekend late Sunday night and thought I would shoot some highlights your direction.

As usual, I didn't do all that great. My records for the events I played in are as follows
- Early Bird 500: 0-4 (Plus a bye)
- Mangled Metal: 1-4
- 1000: 2-3
- 1-1-1-1: 2-3

So my total was 5 wins, 14 losses, and 1 bye. Could have been better. Some lessons learned from me.
- Don't play in the 1000 point tournament. I was fried. The games are so big and intensive in a tournament setting that it just makes my head boggle. By the end, I was just not carrying so much. Plus, because I was so fried, I just didn't want to play in the 350 Hard Core, which I heard was a great event.
- The hotel was nice, plenty of room. I liked the nicer hotel vs. the flea pit we had last year. Yes it was about twice as much per person, but the short walk and clean spaces was better. Plus, the suite was only $24 more per night. For a second room w/ a fridge. May have to look at the suites again next year
- Go down early? The Lincoln guys went down the night before and had a good nights rest before the event. That looks appealing to me to prevent the early morning dash with out much sleep.

As a group I think we did OK. The Lincoln guys (Tyler) won at least one event, maybe two and Chris took best theme with his drunk Borka list. Nobody walked away from the event with a free army, but we were up on armies from our first two years so that is ok.

Carl does have a good selection of 'used' warmachine stuff on sale and since I am going to be playing Khador in the MkII slow grow, I thought I would pick up some stuff. I got some Winterguard, Iron Fang w/ attachment, Mechanics, & Kossites... A good chunk of my infantry needs.

John if you want more Khador let me know. I have tons I'm looking to get rid of, cheap to.

You bought Kossites? You're my hero!

I always liked the Kossites. While not as good as some choices they do have their place. The figs don't look bad either.

I think we will see more Kossites in Mkii... They are cheap. Plus they get a bonus with Yuri the Axe too.

By the way, if John doesn't go for all you Khador there might be few things I'd take off your hands.

But I'll wait to see what you have left.

John's taken what he wants. Does John have your email? If he does I can send you a list of what I have left.
