Warmachine battle report Khador VS. Cryx

 So i got the chance to play my first game of Warmachine finally. I played agenst my brother in laws cryx. The picture above this is our army's before deployment  I thought it was nice seeing them all together in one place the only thing not 100% painted is his skarlock bet Evan that has some base coat on it. the game was 15 points so lets get to it shale we. 
 I forgot to take a picture of our deployment but this is after his turn one advance and run movement you can just barely see sorscha just behind my juggernaut. 
 i ran my juggernaut forward and followed with my caster walking up 6  the destroyer advanced 4 and fired the cannon to no effect. at the same time the widow makers moved up and found there mark on the 2 little jacks right in front of them crippling the slime sprayer on the left most one and getting close to shooting the head off of the one just to its right
 same turn different angle. sorrey i am going to need some time to get better ar shooting these with learning the game and trying to document it at the same time
 I seem to have missed the last turn  but that mostly was him denighing me charges with his gas clouds and me shooting the head off of the 2ed jack advancing on the widow makers.  this turn i missed the shots i had on the little jacks with the widow makers and charged with the juggernaut. witch promptly missed most of its attacks due to not haveing the focus allocated to it it would need. but it still took the head off of the death ripper.
 Then the tide starts turning and the cryx do there first damage the slayer charges my juggernaut and pounds it for massive damage and the death ripper adds in for even more leaving it with only 5 boxes left but it still had an open fist so that was something to strike back with in my turn. in return damage I hit the slayer hard crippling one arm and the head I tried to shoot the slayer with my destroyer and scattered off on to  his caster but doing no damage . the widow makers also starting missing  there shots badly. 
 This turn the widow makers started to go down to the death ripper and the slayer killed my juggernaut the 3 green spell markers are all the center of 3in aoe gas clouds so i did not have much in the way of line of sight on his caster.
 I chose to hide my Sorscha behind my jack to keep from getting assassinated  by his focus charged up caster. but that left her open to the almost dead slayer i believe he had 5 or 6 boxes left but still had the one damn claw and it took her down to 5 points from 17 but could not finish the job. his caster also charged my destroyer and busted it up rather well. but left its ax to strike back in my turn. doing alot of damage to his lord he only had 6 boxes left after the ax fell sorscha also finished off the slayer in my turn 
 same turn again this part my was half tho so i suppose i will have to shoot one for each half of the turn next time..
the last turn i forgot to shoot for the first half but his caster killed my destroyer and he tried to kill me with his little jack but missed one or maby 2 attacks and failed to damage on the last. I then walked out of combat with his little jack and into his caster he missed the free attack and i had a full pile of focus to blast his remaining health so it looked like and easy kill finally. But no it still came down to the last attack being boosted  to take the last of his health away. 
So the final out come victory by caster kill for Khador!
We are supposed to play agaion some time this week so i am going to try to keep documenting these games they are a blast to play and the game could have gone both ways on on several different times. Lets just hope I take enough pictures next time.


  1. That was an awesome game. I'm sure we both missed a few things, but it was pretty cool regardless. We're going to get better and better and will pose greater challenges to each other. Awesome!

  2. yeah all 3 games we have played have been a blast. I think we both learn a bit more each time and the game is a bit deeper each time because of it.
