Third Game – 2/26/14

Here’s a game with Makeda3!

Chronicles of a Mediocre Wargamer

Second game of the night for Week 2 was against Ron playing a Makeda3 tier list. His list was:

Faction: Makeda3 – Armageddon
Points: 50/50
Tiers: 4
Makeda and the Exalted Court (*2pts)
* Bronzeback Titan (10pts)
* Mammoth (19pts)
* Titan Gladiator (8pts)
* Aptimus Marketh (3pts)
Paingiver Beast Handlers (Leader and 3 Grunts) (2pts)
Praetorian Swordsmen (Leader and 9 Grunts) (6pts)
* Praetorian Swordsmen Officer & Standard (2pts)
Ancestral Guardian (3pts)
