Khador 2013 - Part 09 "Jamming & Stuff"

It is brutal, but this /is/ how it feels.
This article of Khador 2013 - which is probably going to be my most tactical/strategic one to date -  I'll dedicate to the topic of TarpittingJamming, Pinning, and what I call Declogging - and how to best do it and counteract it in Khador.

   With the new Steamroller 2013 scenarios, a lot of action happens in the middle of the board. To score from objectives, flags or zones, you either have to clear them out, or try to keep the enemy too far away from them in the first place. The middle-of-the-board-factor gives a renewed strength to the first two strategies, since you now do not necessarily have to be ultra-fast to do it properly. Other than that, these strategies have existed before, too.

    Being a linguist, however, I cannot help but point out that there are subtle differences (to me, at least), which mainly manifest in the ability (and necessity) for the unit to not die. In that regard: Tarpitting > Jamming > Pinning.

Realigning the CRL look

Just did a small update on the looks of this blog - took stuff that was hidden at the bottom of the page to the right, rearranged the order, and took the Bloglist off (I wasn't following them that closely).

Maybe the glaring lack of followers proves inspiring. ;-)

Khador 2013 - Part 08 "Kayazy"

I did not choose Kayazy Life - Kayazy Life chose me!
In this article for Khador 2013, I'll look into one of the more annoying units - or rather, model class - from Khador. The Kayazy merchants kings. Or, to be more precise, their gut-stabbin', throat-slittin' thugs. Because that is what they are! They come for you in their Italian/Venecian looking clothing, dancing around, being expert fighters, but remember: They're only the thugs that go kill people on orders, not the actual merchant kings.

So I'll dedicate this article to my ugly looking assassins, their great-looking female coworkers, and my love-hate relationship with them. Because, as much as I want to get away from using them, they keep going coming back to me to usher me back into playing them. Because that is what thugs do, so let's get to it.

I'll look at what Kayazy Khador has access to, what they offer, how we can apply them, how we can do a twist on their numbers, what Four Star options they have, what I'd like to see in the future - and my top 5 Kayazy Songs.

Khador 2013 - Part 07 "T.A.C. Previews"

A different three dwarves.
In this "breaking news" article for Khador 2013, I'm going to highlight something non-Khadoran: the Tactical Arcanist Corps. A mercenary Rhulic unit of three magic users that works for Khador (and Cygnar, bleh), constituted of extremely drilled battle mages from the Brand of Odom. Aside from the fact that they seemingly outshine other options (like the Greylord Ternion, in part), and are a uber addition to Searforge, I'll look into how they'd benefit us, what we can give them (esp. with Valachev), and which caster I think can benefit the most.

This time, we talk about the latest spoilers for Hordes, and speculate on the few for Warmachine.

And have a lot of quality laughter time with our guest Lee (from TheBleepuppodcast).

Head to Head - Butcher v. Darius

Oldschool Battlereport! Analog aggression on digital media! Recently, the first game was played on my own portable gaming table (which is a wedding gift from my brother). Arides and me both tried out our "Hydra" lists for ClogCon - a fourty point army, and then a selection of six casters. Which one you play will be determined before the game begins. In our case, it turned out that Orsus Zoktavir, the Butcher of Khardov would face Captain Dominik E. Darius. Enjoy!
