Rethinking the Retribution

At GenCon I picked up a copy of the Retribution of Scyrah army book and Kaelyssa, Night's Whisper to play with potential color schemes.  At first I was tossing around the idea of starting up a Retribution force - the playstyle looked interesting and it had the "shiny new hawtness" going for it.  Then I realized something...

A Few Post-GenCon Thoughts

I'm back in St. Louis and still recovering from GenCon.  A lot of the announcements and previews at the Privateer Press booth have already hit the various forums so there's no need to talk about those again.  Josh, Jason, and I recorded a lot of interviews over the weekend which we'll be posting as we get them cleaned up.

It was a blast meeting and talking to fellow Warmachine players from across the country like the SOBs. We recorded Episode 50 of the Iron Agenda in the Wabash room late Friday during open play and I think by the end of the episode we had cycled 11 people behind the microphones.

The downside of the Con this year was getting sick, missing the last Hardcore of MkI, and now I'm fighting off some sort of cold/sinus infection.  Still I had a great weekend and am already looking forward to next year.

We'll be talking about the news surrounding Privateer Press, their Next Big Thing, the Retribution, and more here and on the podcast in the near future, so keep an eye open.

2009 Masters Event Last Minute Changes

Preregistration for Masters has been closed and tickets have been bought.   I hope nobody had their Masters lists finalized, packed, and painted, because with a month left before GenCon Privateer Press has released a rules addendum to their Masters event.  The big change is this:

The GenCon 2009 Masters event encourages players to not only demonstrate mastery with a single warcaster or warlock but with their entire faction line-up. A warcaster / warlock that appears in one of a players’ lists cannot appear in another list for the remainder of the Masters event. Mercenary warcasters can only appear in a players’ list[s] if that player is playing Mercenary contracts for the whole of the GenCon 2009 Masters event.
