While I was disappointed to not be in a WTC team, being here to support the french team was a treat, and there is a cool side tournament in solo to keep oneself occupied. Since thoses days I mostly train Exalted, to be prepared once CID drop, I feared to be underprepared. Turn out, I was just fine.
The post on battle engine have trouble being finished, and still require editing because he have bloated out of proportion. In the meanwhile, I still play warmachine, and I have tried several experiments. One just ended in failure, and it’s that poor Ascetic Master Naaresh.
Joinville is the biggest french team tournament, and he usually draw the french WTC teams as well as a bunch of foreign team. In addition to that, it’s very close to Paris, so they really weren’t any reason to not go here.
More statues are incoming for one of the most visually striking Skorne theme force. It will bring a bit of variety in one of the less varied theme force, open a bunch of new options and toys to try out, and find new and exciting way to paint basalt statues. Also, giant statues with swords the size of a skyscrapper are pretty cool. Sadly, still no construct warbeasts for the skornes, but I guess we’ll manage to live without Tiberion 2, the first titan ancestral guardian.
Welsh master ! It’s the biggest single warmachine tournament in Europa, and I heard it was pretty swell from a french pressganger. I guess I wasn’t alone to be interested since France sent more than 10 player in total.
Lord Assassin Morghoul is one of thoses casters who have been over the years both broken good and unplayably bad. The current version, thanks to the hard work of PP, is actually pretty balanced. More importantly, he is fun to play.
I have liked Zaadesh at first sight, but it took quite a bit of time for me to have a good list with it. Actually, while I played it already at the 2017 Milan Master, it wasn’t before the release of Imperial Warhost that I did a list that actually clicked together. Since then, I have experimented a lot of variations on that beast-heavy list, and my current version have a relatively unusual inclusion, an hydra. This post present an analysis of the Imperial Warhost Zaadesh archetype, and why I converged on including an hydra.
