With the release of Monsterpocalypse, I'm ready to start building up my favorite armies. Based on the appearance and theme of the factions, I have chosen to play the G.U.A.R.D and the Martian Forces. This page is obviously dedicated to my G.U.A.R.D force. Right now, things are quite small. I only have the two monsters and several units. Though once I find I sizable group of players to trade with, I expect my army to grow.
After one tournament, A faction pure force can give a player an advantage. I'm working towards getting a full 15 figure G.U.A.R.D force. Though where I went to play, just about everyone already had a complete faction army, so I was only able to trade one figure away.
For building my city, I like the High Rise Apartment Buildings. When one is placed on your own side of the map, it's an easy way to generate extra power. The other ones are placed in the middle to be used as target practice for monster throwing!
A single nuclear power plant is a good choice as it can also provide one extra power. The problem is that nuclear power plants can really benefit other factions. Specifically the Martians. There is no reason to make it easier for the enemy to win the game by placing lots of these around the board.
The normal apartment complexes, while not most beneficial to the GUARD, they are helpful to any faction. Just keep them a little back so that the other player cannot brawl them. Another reason for keeping them is back is that they don't explode when hit, so placing these buildings in the middle of the map will not offer the same fire power as other buildings.
Another building which is great for the GUARD is the radar array. I am currently attempting to acquire one of these off e-bay. Update: I just won one today. More details to come.
Watch out for that spot on Kill Again's Island...
I played a demo game against a new player several days ago, so I really wasn't paying full attention to exactly what I was doing. I decided to try out the Kill Again's Island Map....
Picked up a Radar Array
I won an auction on E-bay today and picked up a Radar Array for my army. Next time I am going to be hunting for some Rocket Choppers.
Added City List
In addition to my Monsters and Units I have added some of the Buildings I take to my army list.
I was able to pick up two more grunt G-Tanks off e-bay. This brings my G-Tank count up to the maximum of five.
As I am typing this, I just got back from playing in my first Monsterpocalypse Tournament. It was a interesting learning experience. I came away with only one win out of three games because I beat the one person who probably had less experience then me.
Battle vs Shadow Syndicate
In order to prepare for a tournament next weekend, I sat down to play a casual game against Kyle. After a one hour time limit, the game was technically a draw - Partially as a result of the random wandering Cthulu Monster. We did play the game out and I had played a better power management game. I was pulling in five to seven power with every powerup while Kyle was lucky to bring in one. One thing I had difficult with using only eight units was that I could not effective secure a couple of buildings and launch a unit assault. Therefore, for the tournament, I am going to need to pack a few extra random units.
