    Asgard Games in Houston is a pretty popular store for Warmachine, I believe.

    Oh, neat, apparently the Thresher didn't get delayed again. (Mine's supposedly coming tomorrow.) And the chef got previewed in the new NQ, it hands out Comfort Food to friendly warrior models in it's command range.

    Huh, I remembered there was a big group around U of D a few years back, I guess they evaporated?

    I found two groups, one at Superior Comics, and one at Our Game Table. Honestly really couldn't stand either of them, OGT had terrible staff and an annoying PG, while SG had this impenetrable clique that would just continually talk during the game and would mostly ignore you the whole time.

    That was in Dover, which was a 30 minute drive in good traffic (aka October through May). Newark was closer to an hour.

    Asgard looks like 45 minutes from me (Texas City). I'll check it out.

    Model list, for posterity.

    Ahh okay, I was a bit further north (Newark was about 30 min away for me but in the other direction) so I basically knew that they were there by hearsay.

    Sucks about that clique situation though. Good luck with finding a group in Texas.

    If you are looking for games in Houston, there are several locations and options. The first option is the Houston Warmachine Facebook group to let other people know that you'll be showing up at X place at Y time. As for locations, in Kingwood on the northeast side, you have Swords and Superheroes. While they may not have the biggest room for gaming (meh), they have about the best stock of miniatures. If something has been released, they should have it. They also have another store in Cypresswood which is more closer to Houston on the north side. There is Fat Ogres at I45 and Rayford-Sawdust (north side again) which has about the best gaming area out of all the stores in Houston. It has plenty of room, light, parking, people, etc. Asgard Games - as someone has mentioned earlier - is probably the location where the most competitive players gather. However, it feels like a smaller version of Fat Ogres - and the parking just stinks. Aside from those places, there are other smaller game stores such as Montag's on the SW side that have plenty of tables of gaming, but you will definitely need to reach out to the Facebook group to let people know you are going to be there.

    Not sure I'm 100% on board with the stegosaurus tail but everything else is super. Also it's in plastic! Glorious, beautiful plastic.

    And there's a model for this now too, which is not in plastic it's white metal, but is still cool.

    Though the majority of soulless taken in by the Retribution live out brief lives as anti-magic escorts for the group’s soldiers, a select few receive specialized training to become voidtracers. They are skilled but expendable mage hunters, trained to sacrifice themselves for the success of the mission. Without fear of death, they fight ably alongside other Retribution forces to clear the way to their target with swift, reflexive swordplay. Like other soulless, voidtracers absorb arcane energies employed by the mages they hunt, but they can also reflect it back to the spellcaster in a focused impulse, creating a deadly feedback surge.

    What happened to No Quarter #62?

    It is not even listed on the PP website, none of the FLGS's in the Greater Toronto Area have it in stock. One of them even told me that their distributor is out therefore there is 0% chance of ever getting it.

    That seems odd for it being only a few months old, yes? I REALLY need that Legion material for my IKRPG game!

    Huh, that's interesting. The next league, Company of Iron, has apparently rules for small skirmish-level battles that don't use warcasters or warlocks.

    What I find even more interesting is Caine 3. Caine 1/2 has been my tournament pairing for the past 6 months. Can't wait to find out what Caine 3 can do.

  • NobodyNobody Registered User regular
    I'm still kind of disappointed we're getting Caine3 before Siege2, but I am definitely curious about that storm knight caster.

  • TheBigEasyTheBigEasy Registered User regular
    Well - all they did was introduce all the brand new casters and name dropping Caine 3 at the end. Maybe either its a really big book and everyone gets 3 casters (new one + 2 epics) - so Siege 2 is still a possibility. Or Caine 3 is from the book AFTER that - which also means Siege 2 is still possible :D.

    I believe they explicitly said that they'll be Mercenary models that work for Cygnar and the Protectorate.

    So the Warmachine crew at my LGS is doing a journeyman league with the switch being that we can run a full 15 pt list from week one. Since they are talking about playing on nights I can normally go I'm considering lists to join in:

    System: Warmachine
    Faction: Cygnar
    Casters: 1/1
    Points: 15/15
    Commander Adept Nemo (*6pts)
    * Lancer (6pts)
    * Stormclad (10pts)
    * Squire (2pts)
    Journeyman Warcaster (3pts)

    Or

    System: Warmachine
    Faction: Cygnar
    Casters: 1/1
    Points: 15/15
    Captain Victoria Haley (*5pts)
    * Lancer (6pts)
    * Defender (9pts)
    * Squire (2pts)
    Journeyman Warcaster (3pts)

    I also considered running Haley2 since I haven't used her before but I feel that would be mean of me.

    I'm deliberately avoiding character jacks and the Stormwall for now.

    Going to go with the PHaley list and swap out the Lancer for a Hunter.

  • NobodyNobody Registered User regular
    Ended up going with PHaley, two Defenders, and Squire.

    First match was against PZaal with Scarabs, Cyclops Shaman, and Bronzeback. I popped feat early and erased the Shaman, but I probably should have reserved it since I realized I didn't have any direct way of killing the Bronzeback, and it was able to walk up to Haley and pound her into the ground after ripping off the arm of my Defender as it charged past to hit Zaal.

    What I should have done probably was take a couple of turns sniping the Shaman down, while Haley chain lightninged off the Bronzeback onto the Scarabs to remove them, then pop feat and poor shots into Zaal to force him to transfer into the Bronzeback to kill it.

    Second match was against PCaine with Ace, Avenger, Minuteman. Devastated the Minuteman early on by removing its Cortex and arm, the Avenger missed the Squire and therefore couldn't knock down Haley. I scrambled the Avenger hoping to get it to run through Caine to knock him down but it ran at the wrong angle. I popped feat but didn't need it as one Defender rolled 11(!) to hit him and that was that.
