Are Scourge the hardest army to win with?

Hello fellow zoners. Today I will be talking about the difficulties of winning with the Scourge. 
I am normally found around a DzC board using my UCM, but decided a while back that I wanted a 2nd army, the Scourge. I have slowly been building my army based on the models I like and how I think the Scourge play. I probably now have around 2000+ points!

Don't give me problems. Give me Solutions!!

Now as the title suggests, I am finding the Scourge a difficult army to win with (don't worry - I'm still winning games, it's just a lot harder to do).  
The Scourge problems hinge around the low armour and ridiculously short range weaponry, but I knew all that when I bought into the army. So what's my problem?

Critical Engagement: Mega Mikes Scourge

Critical Engagement (CE) is now resigned to history. Poets will write sonnets, there will be slow and brooding laments and joyous victory songs telling of courageous feats of valour! 

Believe it!!

Below is my recap of the day from the Scourge perspective, I will go through my list and go through my games and how I did. I thoroughly enjoyed myself; when is it ever not fun to have 3 games of DzC in a day?!

Breaking Down The Resistance

R-Day approaches!
Reconquest Day (to be known as R-Day from here on in) is quickly approaching, and I can hear the saliva dripping from your gaping maws, creating disgusting saliva rivers of anticipation, which flow into the extraordinarily unhygienic sea of excitement! We have been treated to snippets of info that have been released by various peoples of the interwebs, who happen to have the book already (most namely, Hawk's Talons and other, less wordy blogs than ours).

Well we here at OB happen to be part of the lucky and vocal collective who have their grubby paws on it! In this post I won't be talking about the book so much (which, besides a few layout issues with wording in the history, is beautiful and excellent), but how you can expect the Resistance to play.

Critical Engagement The photos.

I could use an obscure 1940s noir reference here, but I won't because I'm better than that. 
So after a busy few weeks (Cough nearly a month) I finally get round to writing up the blog post in which I talk about our Tournament. Plus show you some photos taken by myself.

Short Story: The Return

To celebrate the release of the Resistance, I thought I would do something a little different, and have decided to share with you a short that I have penned. The guys at Hawk seemed to enjoy it, so I hope you do too!

On The Cusp Of The Future

It's almost time!
Being a blog solely dedicated to Dropzone Commander, I imagine you guys and gals out there have been wondering why we haven't been going bat crap crazy over all the new Resistance models on the horizon. Well, I can assure you we have. I actually saw Skullsword back flip with joy on release of one of the sneak peaks (I say back flip. I really mean fall backwards in a premeditated fashion, into a chair. Alright, he sat in a chair in a fit of joy). We have all been waiting patiently since Salute, where we were lucky enough to see things first hand, for these packets of resin beauty to be released!

You see, the reason for the lack of posts regarding these rebels, is simply because I personally don't like to deal in speculation. I would rather wait a little while, correlate what information I have, and shoot it into your faces out of my knowledge cannon! As we now have renders or pictures of all (I presume all) the units, I have collected everything together for your eye joy!
