Warmachine/Hordes for Warmongers

Hey guys, I picked up the new Hordes rules and my Legion book yesterday, itching to get into this now. Any other of the old fart Warmongers starting up?

I play protectorate! Been playing quite a bit actually and am really enjoying the game. It's far less "Magicy" than people say, in that tactics definitely win the day (most of the time), though executing your combos appropriately are part of those tactics.

However, my playing doesn't help much, given the 3,000 miles between us!

in reading through MK 2, it seems like they have toned down the power of units. or is it me?

They rather upped the strength of Jacks. Beasts are strong as they were before. Most of MK2 was a cleaning up the rules and streamlining it. It's less Infantrymachine now than it was though, at least here in the NE.

The point of MkII was to get rid of a lot of clunkiness and streamline everything along with bring Warjacks back to the forefront. There are some units that are still really good, but alot of stuff has been "balanced" for lack of a better term. There are still really good units, and really crappy ones, but it's not as extreme as it used to be.
The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don't alter their views to fit the facts. They alter the facts to fit their views. Which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering.

35 points is the normal point size. You can play anything smaller and larger though and it's still some fun. Scales pretty well. 35 however is 'standard'. 50 is also popular though.
