Last night was another night of Warmachine. I am really enjoying the fact that I can actually play every week and that the store runs their night on a schedule that fits mine. Its awesome.
I got 1 game in last night at 25 points. It lasted a good 2 hours, and was against Matt and his Legion, this time led by Absylonia.
I ran the following:
Min Kayazy Assassins
I was up against a beast heavy Absylonia list.
– Nephilim Soldier
I say that and went blah. Here we go again. Honestly the game turn into a slugfest, with mistakes made on both sides. For example, we didn’t notice that the Totem Hunter had stealth, and I completely missed the fact that my Kayazy lost the +2 DEF in melee after the Underboss died. I also completely forgot to move my Manhunter turn 1 *DOH!*
The game ended after I had killed everything on his side BUT Abby, and had a Destroyer, Juggernaut, 1 Kayazy, 1 Widowmaker, and Butcher left. He had taken out my Axe arm on my Juggernaut who was in melee with Abby.
He was at full fury thanks to reeving, so he used a fury to grant Abby wings after upkeeping Carnivore for free, and chanced the Freestrike from the Juggernaut to charge Butcher.
It takes all but his last Fury, but he kills pButcher. It was EPIC.
Dan played another game as well, against Richard and his Cryx. Dan actually was using Druids along with his usual list, and thus was playing at 25 points (22 actually). I didn’t really get a good look at Richard’s list other then it was very similar to what I played against. Dan won, after rifting the crap outta Nightmare and boosting the damage rolls on Deneghra, and killing his own Feral to get more fury.
Last night made me realize how much fun you can have with infantry, and whetted my appetite to try something a little less front line and more control.
I want to try pIrusk.
Specifically, I had thought up a nasty looking 25 point list that uses pIrusk. What do you all think?

Tons of infantry plus targets for both Iron Flesh and Battle Lust. And my feat will not be wasted, and with one Jack I don’t have to be choosey about who gets Superiority, and can load it with Focus. And lets not forget Inhospitable Ground! 14 inch wide Difficult Terrain for anyone but my dudes?
