Protectorate Beatings

Played a game yesterday vs. Asmo. I took the Harbinger tier 4 list - so I had 4 heavy warjacks playing against Skorne. In one turn I essentially lost 3 heavy warjacks, which was pretty frightening, but I managed to pull out the caster kill with a last ditch effort with the Avatar. Be sure to check Asmo's blog for the battle report.

I am slow at playing skirmish games

When I played WFB, I seem to recall that I made decisions faster than when I play Warmachine.  While I thoroughly enjoy the mkii ruleset, I feel like the game system overall presents me with a lot of information that I feel the need to remember or constantly need to ask my opponent for.  I find that despite my best attempts to play quickly, I easily get bogged down after about two turns.  Maybe the answer is just simply to play more though.

Short of memorizing the statline of every model in the game system or making decisions at random without taking in to account the DEF/ARM of possible targets, I am curious to hear people's suggestions.  I have a few ideas to limit the amount of information I try to base my decisions on, but I wanted to see what other people had done in order to increase their speed of play.

That's all for now.  Asmo and I played a game Monday evening, but I think he took better notes and pictures of the game (I forgot my camera) so I'll just wait to comment on his battle report.

Yet Another busy week

Another uneventful week on the hobby front.

I have however made quite a bit of progress on my research. For those interested, I will link to my project on Google Code ( Be warned, that the material contained therein is likely to be extremely boring and contains lots of maths that I have heard described as "gross".  Have fun =).

Another busy week

Other obligations interfered with the plans for BK and myself to play another 35pt game, so I decided it was better for me to spend that time on my research for school instead of anything hobby related.  Expect another three weeks or so of slowness as I have a deadline that absolutely must be met so it is unlikely that I will be able to get myself to work on any painting or anything (but I might spare time for a game or two).  

I did purchase a CA glue debonder as I have decided to remove some magnets from a few bases and replace them with weaker/thinner magnets.  With the current magnets I feel like I am in danger of snapping models off bases when trying to remove the model from their movement tray.  Feel free to comment with any tips if you have used any CA debonders before.
