is this the new face of evil? Little Barrera, the Mighty Kibitzer. He may well be!
Menoth Vs The Legion
In hindsight, I may have been better off with a Revenger instead of the Repenter and the Covenant, but who cares? It's practice.
I used Amon's spell Mobility to hurl the 'Jacks forward.
His rolls suck pretty bad, and my 'Jack takes a few points of damage.
Since it's not on its feet, my Repenter moves forward unmolested and unleashes its flamethrower on three models, setting two of them on fire... but not the enemy Warlock.
The rest of his army attacks my Repenter, and though it has a few boxes left, both arms are torn off and its effectiveness is at an end.
That was the high point of my game, for sure.
Amon and the Revenger are holding the left flank nicely...
Amon uses Thresher to hit both the little, rabid attack thingie and the big dude in the middle. The Revenger repulses another threat.
The key here is the Covenant: he's nice and close, so Lawgiver's Creed will work in the next turn, denying the Warlock his ability to cast spells. More important, I thought my models were spread out enough so Sam-I-Am's big dog critter in the backfield wouldn't be able to get to Amon on an assassination run.
The picture to the right demonstrates where the Covenant should have been placed - as it was, he was too far forward and the big dog critter slipped between the Choir and the Covenant models and did away with Amon.
It was a close thing though; if he hadn't, Amon would have had a field day in the next turn!
Have I mentioned how much I'm loving Warmachine?
On another note, I got real sick at the store last night. I couldn't figure out what was wrong - my muscles ached, and I was flushed and dizzy. It was awful. I finally drove home and bugged the crap out of my wife with all my complaining.
After a shot or two of medicine, I got to sleep and woke up feeling fine.
I mention it because I know the guys were worried. I appreciate their concern, and it embarrasses me to admit it, but I think it was my body fighting off the flu.
Or rather, a dead flu. I had a flu vaccine not too long ago for work, and while I've never had side effects I know it can happen. It was first-rate awful, but frankly I'd rather feel bad for one evening than get the flu for a week or more!
Thanks guys - sorry to worry you over nothing.
