Second game night of Warmachine last night! Even though our first night was many months ago (February I think?) I think we picked up the rules pretty quickly. The clarity of the WM rules really helped speed things along, there’s not much ambiguity in the rules compared to 40K and when there were questions the War Room app or the rulebook really cleared things up pretty easily.
Menoth – David B
Cryx – Frank
Table setup was symmetrical to keep things simple and fair, Menoth won deployment and set up first, Cryx were set up directly opposite, with warjacks on one side and troopers on the other. Since this was a training game we didn’t want to make things too complicated!
Menoth ended up winning by taking out the Cryx warcaster Deneghra after some tactical blunders and just one instance of what we’ll call ‘a bad roll’ – due to the way the game works it’s not as random as 40K and is much more a game of chess, it seems like losing is more a matter of making mistakes than a handful of bad rolls.
Overall it was a good night!
