All posts for the month July, 2015

Hi all – as I had a fairly successful ETC (apart from the first game), I thought I’d do a quick write-up of my games and thoughts. A little bit of preamble first.

So, as most of you probably know, I started playing Cryx earlier this year, getting up to 50 points at the start of March.

Ok so for the LWM custom caster league, i bounced around a few ideas, and ended up on going with Baldur1, for a number of reasons, he’s a good mid line defense caster (14/16) nothing to sniff at, and while he’s only 6 focus in cygnar I got access to both the Squire or Sylys depending what spells I ended up. So while working out my 42 pts list I decided to take some classic Cygnar stuff, which could do a good mix of melee and shoot so depending what Spells I got I could make good use of them. So the list was

Ok, So we did the first 3 drafts last night, we got some interesting combinations and some dam right nasty ones. So to start with the breakdown on casters chassis used had a few surprises. The breakdown look like Breakdown

Vayl1 was the most popular with 3 out of 14 players taking her, then Kaelyssa, Doomshaper and Butcher all getting 2 each, with the rest getting 1. We see who had the right idea.
