Generally Kromac 2 loves to run a lot of heavy beasts. If you want to annoy your rival meanwhile you position your heavy stuff and Kromac maybe some Sentry Stones and even trackers can do that job pretty well. Blood weavers were ok in MKII but now I only field them with Wurmwood because they are cheap souls. Wish an attachment brings back their extra dice vs living enemy models.

I am intrigued by Kro2 but I find it difficult playing him as he has little to no aid against ranged. I have thought about using a Druid smoke screen in front of the battlegroup but as yet have not tried it. Has anyone else found game with Kro2?
I was inspired by CharlesCarmichael's blog, Druid's Dice. He had a series of battle reports back in January running Kromac2 with the Stormraptor. The reports for Kromac2 start with this one, I think. Not sure if it's anything like what you're looking for, but I enjoyed his reports and tried it out myself for a few games. It was fun! A very different Kromac2 experience for me. It's been the most fun I've had running the Stormraptor too.
Fury management is tough, but the toolset is amazing with all the animi working brilliantly with Kromac himself. WE&SJ are just crazy with his feat up, as people miss or bounce damage.
One of my favourite things about Kromac2 is his ability to get involved. I've had him kill 2 Skorne light beasts and 3 infantry in one turn, for the total cost of 3 fury, and then 1 fury to lightning strike away.
greyknightv6 : my Kromac2 list is very similar, but instead of Ghetorix and Riphorn, I'm playing Loki and Shadowhorn. In both changes I lose in sheer power, but I gain in movement trick and non-linear threats. And with the 4 point I can fit both a unit of sentry stones and a gobber chef, that work miracle for fury management. Also, with def14 and starcrossed, Dodge is a good animus even on Kromac himself.
All considered, he is a solid caster against other melee lists, just do not put him against too much firepower.
