Warmachine Journeyman: Week Three Wrap-up

This was a cool week.  I managed to get three games in and true to form I didn't take any pics or do battle reports but here is the recap as I remember it.

The Mik - Menoth - Victory (Assassination) : The Mik is a great opponent.  Very happy and goes with the flow.  This was a 15 point match since I missed last week.  I ran:

Warwitch Deneghra
Deathripper
Deathripper
Defiler
Slayer

He ran the standard Battle box with some extra guy that gave jacks he was in B2B with an extra action.  He managed to wreck shop on my jacks.  What won the game was pDenny charging with full focus.

I ran this list for my next two matches:

Warwitch Deneghra
Deathripper
Deathripper
Slayer
Bane Thralls (Leader and 5 Grunts)
Pistol Wraith
Pistol Wraith
Warwitch Siren
Warwitch Siren


Nate - Cygnar Siege - Loss (Assassination): This was an epic battle.  Much better than our first meeting.  Some highlights were don't pop Siege's feat when pDenny's feat is active unless you are close enough to account for the loss of focus.  I dodged a big bullet on that.  Using the WWS sirens to run enemy troops into their own AOE is funny. 

The game came down to one roll.  I had to charge a Bane Thrall through a POW 10 AOE and then roll a 7 to win.  I made it through the AOE and then rolled a 6 to hit.  Nate had to charge with Siege and do the same thing and he succeeded. 

Wilson - Some Epic Skorn Guy - Victory (Killbox)/Loss(Assassination): I know this week we weren't supposed to use epics but I like Wilson.  Wilson played like a Cryx caster and hung back.  At his turn in round 3, I said your out of the killbox.  He measured and he was.  Victory.

We kept playing it out.  The Bane Thralls did their job and wrecked shop.  I can't wait till I can get the UA and character for them.   I made a rookie mistake and left pDenny out in the open and he rushed her with his warlock and took her out.  Fun game.

The pistol wraiths haven't impressed me.  I like the WWS.  I am still learning and will need to get some more games under my belt to get the feel but so far I am liking it.

  1. What aren't you liking about the Pistol Wraiths? They terrify me because of their ability to shutdown the effectiveness of Warjacks/Warbeasts and hence why I jumped on them immediately. Not able to get their chain attack off?

    1. I think I need to use them more but they stood out there and I have only fired them once. They are staying in the list but I may need to learn to love them. There RAT is low. If they can kill off a guy without getting killed then they can always use the token to boost but I haven't had much luck with them.
