Tournament Report 1: Games 16-18

Today was the first official 6th edition tournament in our area. I started out the day great against my Necron rival, Ben, but after that everything started going downhill...

List Update: 1850 Mechron Hybrid

After 15 games of playtesting I think its time to shift my thinking a bit. With the advent of 6th I was very firm in my belief that royal courts were a point sink and that I would benefit more from having more bodies on the table then I would from having a few expensive units with better guns. But I'm starting to see how having that little extra oomph in the units might actually go a ways towards increasing the combat effectiveness in my army. So with my experience over the past couple weeks and some insight from the interwebs I've developed a new list. Check it out after the jump.

Game Report 15: Why, Brother?

Today I got a rematch in against Ben's Necrons. He played with the numbers of his list a bit since last we played and he has gotten it to be very solid. We also talked last game about his play mistakes and he made sure to rectify them masterfully. What follows is record of my most complete defeat since 6th edition...

Game Report 14: Insanity Wolves

It was looking like I wasn't going to be able to get a game in today, until at the last minute I convinced one of the owner's of my local game store, Bryan, that he should play me a game. We kind of fast tracked this one so I could leave for work on time, and boy howdy this was an intense game..

Game Report 13: Daemon Rematch

Today I faced off once again against Caleb and his beautiful Daemon army. Caleb's primary focus is as a hobby player and as such usually brings slightly fluffier lists with all the trimmings such as units in holy numbers wherever possible. I usually have a ton of fun playing against him and he often makes pretty ballsy moves that definitely ramp up the fun factor and when they succeed they often put me in a pretty tight spot. Anyway here's the report for you:

List update: Necrons with Chaos Attachment

So today I figure it's time for me to introduce a new kind of article I'll be bringing to MSS going forward. From time to time I'm going to bring forward a new list or idea I want to try out, when I do so I will be posting an article with the list and a brief description of each unit and it's purpose. Going forward as I post game reports, instead of giving a simple summary or having to reference lists from previous battle reports I will simply provide a link to the list in question then detail any changes from the list provided in the link. This will allow for me to provide more information on any game report without bogging any readers down in minutia they may already know of/ don't care about. So without further adieu: My updated Necron list w/ Chaos Marine Support.

Game Report 12: Toasted

Today I finally played against Necrons. This was my first 'mirror match' of 6th edition so it was nice to see how the other side has been faring. It was also my first game against an army with any large quantity of flying vehicles so it was definitely a learning experience.

Game Report 11: The buggening

Today I offered Kriston (from games 10 and 3) a rematch since yesterday's game went so one sided. He decided to bring his tyranids instead of his Grey Knights or Dark Eldar. Which is great for me because my list doesn't have a good answer for monstrous creature spam so I need to get some games in and prepare. And so it began...

Game Report 10: Worst case scenario

Today was game 10 against our 'local' 2011 'Ard boys regional champion, Kriston Broxson (whose Dark eldar I played in game three). I told him to bring a tough list against me And so he brought his revised Draigowing paladin list. The following is what occured:

Game Report: Games 1-4

So far, I have played a grand total of 8 games of 6th edition. In order to get the ball rolling I'm going to go ahead and post abbreviated game reports for these first 8 games. Starting today with my first 4 games and finishing tomorrow with the next 4. After these initial 8 I will be making longer more detailed posts but I just wanted to get the first 8 out quickly. So enjoy the first 4 and tune in tomorrow for the next batch.

Musings and Mission Statements.

Welcome one and all to Mindshackled Musings. My name is Jase, although I go by many names while upon the interwebs. For my blogging activities I will be using the handle 'Nemesor Sombrero'. I chose that particular handle because I feel it really get's my intended tone across, I chose Nemesor because it carries a weight of authority and badassery, anyone named Nemesor must be a bad ass, I also like it because I'm a big fan of all things Necron and I wanted to show that through my handle. I chose Sombrero in order to set my tone and point out that all my posts will be for the most part lighthearted with a sense of humor.
