Butchers Season 3
Guildball
  Season 3 is out and cheers can be heard across every street in the Free Cities! It is our goal at Midwest Wargaming to go over the changes of every guild and since we are a community of volunteer contributors, we hope to provide you with a variety of perspectives.   I happen to play Butchers so here’s my take …
Situations where Exemplar Errants are better than Idrian Skirmishers
Warmachine & Hordes
The Case for Errants Back in MKII, Exemplar Errants were the quintessential unit for the Protectorate of Menoth: they had assault (with Seneschal), they had spellward, they had pathfinder, they had quickwork, they had hunter, they had everything and all of it was for a bargain—they were the Wallmart of units. Conversely, Idrian Skirmishers were the Trader Joe’s of Menoth units—very …
Blood Bowl: a no-brainer
BloodBowl
As you have all heard (and now seen) Blood Bowl is back; it’s been over ten years since 4th edition but Games Workshop has revived its monster-football-parody game and shops across the US are officially allowed to sell it TODAY! Presumably, GW dropped Blood Bowl because they weren’t satisfied with the sales of their specialist game: this makes the revival very noteworthy …
The lost Gavin Kyle File: Deliverers
Off Topic
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little confused when I received this assignment. True, the Protectorate of Menoth is an elusive bunch of zealots but that secrecy only exists within the upper echelons. Down at the bottom of the totem pole your average Menite soldier is about as mysterious as a broom.  And while I appreciate the easy …

Interview with Kat Martin, GenCon2016 P3 Grandmaster Painter
Painting
For those unfortunate Warmachine players, like myself, who were unable to attend GenCon2016, the internet was the next best thing. I poured through twitter feeds looking for updates and cheered for each champion like I would cheer for an Olympian representing my country. Jake Van Meter won the Iron Gauntlet with Legion and Ryan McDermot took down Masters with Khador. …

Countercharge ep3: Magnus2
Battle Reports
For our third episode, my brother and I explore Magnus2 from the Mercenaries faction. In the podcast Mike discusses how he’s gone undefeated with Magnus2 vs balanced lists but thinks it could be a bad matchup vs a dedicated gunline. We test this hypothesis with two games.   Game one: Magnus2 vs Kara Sloan Mercenary – Hutchucks World Theme: No …
