How ’bout that Faction: Khador

Khador is sort of a contradiction for me.  I love the look of the big chunky ‘jacks and the defining characteristics are slow and high ARM.  While this is cool, competitively speaking I don’t see them on the table a lot.  I find Warmachine to be a difficult game to play casually, especially in our group since you can be done on turn 2 or 3 without having done much.  This is the main thing that has kept me from Khador, not feeling like I can play the models I like.

Our Journeyman league went over Thanksgiving so we skipped a week.  We were allowed to do painting in the extra week but I was out of town so I couldn’t take advantage of it.  Last week it was time for week 2.

Warstore Weekend 50 Point Steamroller

After the late night on Friday at The Warstore Weekend playing in the 35 point Steamroller, I was pretty pumped up about playing Retribution.  My original plan was to play in Saturday evening’s Hardcore tournament with my Cryx(who are fully painted) but 2 things changed my mind.  First, I was having a blast playing Retribution, especially Kaelyssa.  Second, the TO announced on Friday that they would start the Hardcore whenever the Steamroller was over, whether that was early or late.  I thought that this was pretty odd.  Starting late I understand but that they would start early potentially making people miss it I didn’t like.  With that the 50 point Steamroller was on!

How ’bout that faction: Minions

I don’t want to give away the thesis of the article, but Gators are cool.  The most recent faction, the minions are limited but very characterful.

How ’bout that faction: Mercenaries

Mercenaries are sort of an odd duck faction for Warmachine and having started playing Cryx and moved to Retribution is probably the worst way to have transitioned into them.  Cryx and Retribution have comparatively very few mercenaries who work for them compared to say, Cygnar and Khador, meaning I own very few and that the transition to using them as a full time army would be more difficult.
