Makeda vs Kaya 500pts, assassination

My second game in the competition, against the till now unbeaten Circle player.
He had: Kaya, Warpwolf, Gorax, Argus, Druids with UA, 2x shifting stones, 2x standing stone
I had: Makeda, Krea, Drake, Guardian, full Cetrati, full Ferox, min Paingivers, Smokers.
For him, the Warpwolf teleporting into my lines and slaying 2 Cetrati and 2 Ferox, with only 2 fury spend. Which both came back because of my feat.
My plan working again. Although he left an opening for me, not very smart.
Carnage and the Krea's animus over Kaya, only a few strikes from the guardian were enough to kill her.
Lessons learned:
I worked, play aggressive and wait for the opportunity...
Ready for battle
The fight tickens
And Kaya eats the dust (he already stored his warpwolf)

3 tables of wargaming madness

For the competition we played on three tables yesterday. All the players of our group participating. All the way in the back is a person which does not play warmachine/hordes and was painting his 15mm brits. From the back to the front Magnus vs Mardrak, Severius vs Vayl and Kaya vs Makeda.


Makeda vs Vayl 500pts, assassination

Today I played a bad game, for the competion, my first one. It was a replay against our local legion player of a battle we played about a month ago.
I had: Makeda, Drake, Krea, Cetrati full, Ferox full, 4 Paingivers, Guardian, Smokers.
He had: Vayl, Carnivian, Teraph, Seraph, 3 Shredders, min Swordsmen, Forsaken.
Keeping it out so long (mostly luck), destroying all of his beasts. The other highlights were for him, destroying the Ferox and both off my beasts in my feat turn.
I was much to careless with Makeda, no beasts and two hitpoints, but I just wanted to stay on the offence.
Lessons learned:
Stay focused young padawan!

Prepare for battle!

The end


Something different

Last sunday on monday night, my grandmother finished fading away. I miss her, I already missed her. I really hope there is a better place, because she earned it! She lives on in my hearth.

Another image!

From the old box, Hexeris, my second caster, but I do not feel powerfull with him anymore, altough deathmarch and deathbringer are great. I have modified him a little bit, making his back banner worse ;).

Our little competition.

Although I haven't played any games. It looks like its going to be hard, we got some strong armies with good players:
Severius with the Blessing, solo's, Idrians and Knights.
Kaya with living beasts, lots of stones and druids.
A Mardrak beast heavy brick.
Magnus, with two rocket jacks, a big one, some solo's and the Kayazy's
Vayls with a lot of beasts, a forsaken and some swords men.
I am looking forward, to some though fights with standard Makeda list and see how far I will come against these nice people.


Next in line for the old painted miniatures post: Makeda

My favorite warlock. I did not really like the backbanners so I put her scabbards on her back.


Zaal vs Kaya 500pts, assassination

Friendly at my place, the pictures did not end up that good this time...
He had: Kaya, Warpwolf, Gorax, Argus, Druids with UA, 2x shifting stones, 2x standing stone
I had: Zaal, Rhinodon, Krea, 8 Swordmen, 5 Paingivers, 4 Ferox and Guardian.
Rhinodon got killed easily by the Warpwolf, it got teleported back and the Argus then paralysed it, so it would do no harm on the frenzy it would get because of the Gorax animus on it.
The swordsmen holding one flank and most of his army and losing only half (not killing anything, but still)
(all using boosts from the Feat of Zaal)
The Krea put her animus on the standingstone next to Kaya, lowering her def.
Zaal did his AO spell on a druid in front of Kaya, damaging her, and clearing two Druids which were standing in the way.
The swordsmen charging on Kaya and doing a lot of damage.
One Ferox last-standing killed her, over his mates with reach and tall in the saddle.
Lessons learned:
I have played against this player against similar lists, so not much to learn about that.
It was not going that good for me, so I went all out, seeing what Zaal can do and I was surprised.
In the end all he lost was some manikins, two druids and Kaya.

Half way through from Circle perspective

Kaya gets killed (the Ferox which did it, is already gone, Kaya is in combat with the two rear most swordsmen).
