Thyra, Nicia & Blood of Martyrs

Just a quick pic today again.  This time Thyra, her second-in-command, Nicia, and her personal warjack, Blood of Martyrs.

They are going to see the table this Thursday in a 25pt T4 Thyra list.  Blood of Martyrs is actually my Paint the Target for Lost Hemisphere for this month.  After completing him, Fire of Salvation is the only Protectorate warjack I have left to paint.

Journeyman League Painting Progress!

Vindictus with some Knights Exemplar

8 weeks down in our gaming group’s Journeyman/Slow Grow League, with about 5ish weeks left, and I wanted to share my latest progress with you.

In that time I’ve been able to paint up 76 points of Protector of Menoth, not including 4 warcasters so far.  By forwardkommander‘s collection tracker, it’s been about 37% of my Menoth force.  Not too shabby I think.  But although I know that 76 points seems like a lot, remember that it is made of mostly warjacks thus far.

This week has been one of my more productive ones in a few since the pre-painting month of the league.  I was able to finish one unit of Knights Exemplar (the metal version), a Knight Exemplar Seneschal, and warcaster Vice Scrutator Vindictus.  Vindictus is a recent purchase (picked him up at the same time as my Sanctifier),  but I thought he looked so cool, he shot to the front of the painting line.   I really like the way  he came out and I’ve already tried him in a friendly 25 point game this past weekend.  At first blush, I really like him and think he fits into my Exemplar themed Protectorate nicely.  True Path is ridiculous with Exemplar.

[Musings] Thyra & the Black Widows

Ok so not the Black Widow we'll be talking about today, but I don't see anyone complaining...
Ok so not the Black Widow we’ll be talking about today, but I don’t see anyone complaining…

Lately I was able to try my first theme force in Warmachine and as per usual for me, it’s probably not one of the easier ones to play.  I’m talking about Thyra, Flame of Sorrow and her Black Widows theme force for Protectorate of Menoth.  It’s basically all Daughters of the Flame.  Which is okay with me, as I love all the Daughters models.

Here’s what I ran with at 35 points.  The only proxy was the Sanctifier, as it hasn’t been released yet.

Faction: Thyra – Black Widows
Points: 35/35
Tiers: 4
Thyra, Flame of Sorrow (*6pts)
* Blood of Martyrs (9pts)
* Reckoner (8pts)
* Sanctifier (9pts)
Choir of Menoth (Leader and 3 Grunts) (2pts)
Daughters of the Flame (Leader and 5 Grunts) (5pts)
Daughters of the Flame (Leader and 5 Grunts) (5pts)
Nicia, Tear of Vengeance (3pts)

So how is it?  What is it?  Read on, all will be explained! [warning: this is going to be a wall of text]

The “Spoken Word” Batrep: Kommander Strakhov vs Thyra, Flame of Sorrow

What’s a “spoken word” battle report?  Well, it’s one without pictures.  Sorry.

Man o man, was it good to get back to playing some Warmachine last Thursday.  Due to the holidays, I hadn’t played in about a month.  I got a chance to finally play one of our LGS’s newest recruits, Jeff.  I believe Warmachine is Jeff’s first tabletop wargame as well, maybe being at it 2-3 months, so we are about the same level.  Jeff is on the side of Menoth, and his friend Danny, who joined at the same time, decided to go Cryx.

I stuck with what is quickly becoming my bread-and-butter list:

Ron (me)

Kommander Strakhov (*6pts)
* Beast-09 (11pts)
* Torch (10pts)
* War dog (1pts)
Great Bears of Gallowswood (5pts)
Iron Fang Pikemen (Leader and 5 Grunts) (5pts)
* Iron Fang Pikemen Officer & Standard (2pts)
Widowmakers (Leader and 3 Grunts) (4pts)
Widowmaker Marksman (2pts)

I hope I remember Jeff’s list correctly.

Jeff:

Thyra, Flame of Sorrow (*6pts)
* Blood of Martyrs (9pts)
Avatar of Menoth (11pts)
Choir of Menoth (Leader and 3 Grunts) (2pts)
Daughters of the Flame (Leader and 5 Grunts) (5pts)
Exemplar Errants (Leader and 9 Grunts) (8pts)
* Exemplar Errant Officer & Standard Bearer (2pts)
Exemplar Errant Seneschal (2pts)
The Covenant of Menoth (2pts)
