So what if… ?

coverHad a thought cross my mind this evening: What if I don’t bring an army to Gencon?

I’ve been wrestling over which case to take, which models to pack and frankly, I don’t want to haul a ton of crap with me. But the funny thing is, I’m bringing a new army home with me. So why not play with it while I’m there?

I’m not abandoning the Trolls, not in the least. And it’s not about being afraid to lose with them because Morrow knows I lose way more games than I win. I’m fine with this as long as you don’t rub my face in it.

I’ve never claimed to be a tournament player, I’m not the best player at my LGS. Warmachine and Hordes have always been about fun to me. I’m a Press Ganger because I’m organized, enthusiastic about the game and understand what it takes to build a community.

This is my first Gencon. I think it would be a ton of fun to build and play with the New Shiny as soon as I can. When am I going to get this chance again? I’m already stoked about helping a PG buddy paint his army for Hardcore. Why not assemble my own models while he’s putting his together?

Statwise, these guys are damn near Sword Knights with a few interesting wrinkles. I was going to do a Mage Hunter army, but Dawnguard... damn.

And since Wendell rocks and iBodger has all of the Retribution models included, I came up with this:

Army Name: Angry Elves
Retribution
744/750 points, 21 VP, 31 models

Dawnlord Vyros 67 points, 5 VP
* Chimera 72 points, 2 VP
* Gorgon 64 points, 2 VP
* Griffon 58 points, 2 VP

Dahlia Hallyr 107 points, 1 VP
* Skarath
10 Dawnguard Invictors 127 points, 2 VP
9 Dawnguard Sentinels 105 points, 2 VP
Eiryss, Angel of Retribution 38 points, 1 VP
Lady Aiyana & Master Holt 43 points, 2 VP
Lanyssa Ryssyl 26 points, 1 VP
Narn, Mage Hunter of Ios 37 points, 1 VP

The list is based on the Merc/Minion models I own, and what I know I’ll be picking up at Gencon. Yes, I am running three light ‘Jacks. I will not be changing this.

Thoughts, comments on my list?

    Still working on that, along with the other models begging for attention. 😛
