Hey everyone, just started getting into Warmachine/Hordes about a month and a half ago. I have been doing a ton of research on how the game plays since I am not very familiar with table top miniatures. Tried getting into 40k about 2 years ago but was turned off because of the outstanding prices of everything. However Warmachine/Hordes prices seem like they are more in my range. Before I went out and bought anything I went to my LGS (where I do FNM's at) to watch the game in action and ask players about the different factions. I did that and fell in love with ret when the only Ret player in the store seemed very happy when I told him Ret was the faction I was going to get into.
Found out a few of my friends are also getting into the game and they only started playing 3 months ago which is awesome! One of my friends picked up a few Ret things but then he decided to play Khador so he sold me a niccley put together Phoenix (unpainted) and Adeptis Rahn for a really good price. I decided to go on a bit of a spending spree also and picked up a few things so I could start playing games.
This is the list I have atm.
Dawnguard Sentinels + UA
Eiryss, Angel of the Retribution
Mage Hunter Assassin
2x Ghost Snipers
Last week I played my first two games (both where 20 points[idk why lol])
The list I ran for both games where.
Max Sentinels + UA
First game I played was against Mercs, I forget the caster he used but I won on a turn 3 assassination. His warcaster put up a wall but left a little gap where his warcaster was exposed, he placed 2 heavy jacks next to the wall and his warcaster about an inch behind one. I activated Rahn's feat maneuvered my battle mages, pushed back one jack 3" and then pulled his warcaster right into my phoenix and on the last battle mage it crit to knock his warcaster down.
Game 2 was against khador, long game. It ended by his warcaster (PSorscha i believe) going in for a caster kill and failing allowing me to just kill him the next turn.
I had a blast playing, I feel like I understand the game a lot since I have been looking through the rules non stop before even playing a game. Only thing I am scared of is my opponents army, idk what to expect since I have only played 2 games. I mean reading their cards are helpful but in the end everything still seems new to me so idk what to expect but thats the fun in this game i think.
Any model/unit I should be looking to invest into next?
