The GWWC got off to a rip roaring start last Wednesday night with above freezing temperatures and Blithering Idiot beer (http://weyerbacher.com/cwo.php?id=7&page_id=10) The forces of Cygnar rocked out a 1-2 record on night one. Not overwhelming, but not a complete loss. All three games were tight and tons of fun, and I tried two armies that I hadn't played much with. My eNemo army was tons of fun, but in the end lost a scenario victory thanks to an excellently played reckoner that managed to beat the snot of the Thunderhead. Game two and three I took a pStryker list that attempted to capitalize on the knockdown mechanic of Earthquake coupled with the Devil Dogs. Against eGaspy I managed to pull off a pretty hard core caster kill after actually surviving his feat turn but against the angry elves of Joey Baltimore, I lost another scenario after failing to disengage the Black 13th from Narn. The point truly was, all three games were incredibly fun. (the Blithering Idiot helped this as well but I digress...)
So tonight's entry is for anyone who isn't a part of our little group of gamers... the who's who of the GWWC.
1: Name: Joey Baltimore
Biggest Strength: Incredible arguing prowess.
Biggest Weakness: Dice hate him. I mean really hate him... he doesn't see the number six except on morale tests...
2: Name: TAD
Biggest Strength: Can build armies better than anyone else in the group. Understands the best way to finagle the rules to his advantage.
Biggest Weakness: He's tiny and could be easily beaten if things get physical.
3: Name: Web
Biggest Strength: His Gorten list is built to win scenario victories and seems to win when the odds are stacked against it.
Biggest Weakness: His models run away. A lot. I think if I could take an all terror causing/ abomination army against him I would win on the second turn.
4: Name: The Kutch
Biggest Strength: Has spent more time theory machining his army than anyone and knows every in and out of his force. The man has a notebook I tell ya, a notebook!
Biggest Weakness: His dice abandon him almost as much Joey's. The Kutch has left more Warcasters at 1 health before losing than anyone in the group.
5: Name: Lupes
Biggest Strength: He plays eGaspy, affectionately known as Assface in our group. His list is brutal. Gaspy's killing power is unparalleled in our group.
Biggest Weakness: Never reads email or the group message board. This keeps him from gleaming important tactics and information and even sometimes keeps him from showing up for games.
6: Name: Reese
Biggest Strength: The freaking Avatar of Menoth. I hate that jack. Coupled with a cynicism that no one can match.
Biggest Weakness: Expects to lose.
7: Name: Ed
Biggest Strength: Winterguard. Lots and lots of freaking Winterguard. Also has the only other army close to being completely painted. Since everyone knows painted models play better this presents a challenge.
Biggest Weakness: Works a lot. Therefore not around to kick my butt as much as he did earlier this year.
8: Name: D-9
Biggest Strength: Much of my army is painted. See above for the statistical improvement of painted models.
Biggest Weakness: I'm not playing my Cryx army.
So there you have it, the usual suspects. Now all of you can follow along at home.
