I'm writing battle reports on blog Moment of Clarity, but during last conversation with Azahul he came up with great name for Gator-concentrated blog (which I used in a title) and give some great inspiration both for writing and lists so... I think I can start a thread
I will try to play these lists for a time (my goal is to don't change lists to IGQ in March) and write my reports.
I don't have a 100% sure about MU's at the moment, but I want to play B2 whenever I can, and Rask for now should cover Legion, PoM and some random things like Sorscha1 doomreavers. I didn't want to have the same solos or lesser (expect Mire) in both lists.
First report vs Anamag is on site, I hope that you will enjoy it ; )
Thanks for the shout out I'm looking forward to getting to be the one living vicariously through another player for a change.
Congrats on the first game by the way. That's a super tough match-up, I'd nearly consider it a hard counter, but even in spite of a few mistakes you managed to make a real game of it. Dice aside, I consider that pretty impressive.
I do think I prefer the Gremlin Swarms in pairs, and I don't super rate the Soul Slave on Barnabus2, but if you're going to be playing into PT a lot then you probably shouldn't be counting on the Swarms anyway...
Soul Slave is also hard to position in this brick, so I definitely will change him for second Swarm. Additional, out of activation, source of Hunters Mark is nice but second GS would be great for scenerio and "block landing spots" reasons.
I found that Dahlia is insanly good vs PT. Also sometimes Warmongers are only MAT 12-13 so under stracroosed they can miss... occasionally But yes, I was also surprised that game feel playable. And taking into account that Legion player is my most frequent gaming partner I will have a lot practice into MU and maybe master it Swarms are pretty OK but can't play frontline role and have to run away from Amok a lot ;P But can protect scenerios nicely, especially on Mirage I'm expecting a lot from them.
Oh I 100% agree on Dahlia being fantastic against PT. She's pretty useful for blocking Hellmouth tentacle drags, for example, so long as you can keep her away from any Hex Blasts Anamag might sling her way.
And yeah, sadly the Gremlin Swarms are of little use in this specific match-up, but holding down flags isn't bad. If Anamag didn't have Hex Blast I'd be inclined to use them to bait Ammok forward so that you could kill him and start getting use out of Rebuke... but she does, so that's basically only a trick you can pull if you get the Thags1 or Kallus1 versions of PT.
Funny, I Just packed Stryker1 for today game xD Minions are great but I have a hole heart for Cygnar and their dakka and pewpew
I've played a game of Sturm vs Anamag but i have no idea when i will post it.
I took Arkadius and Sturm to the local SR, but it has ended badly, 1 2. I am rusted a lot, pretty easy mistakes and playing warbeast lists, or generally a low anount of models, punishes mistakes a lot. Also on weekend i will play Arkadius and Rask on igqualifer in Cracov, but as above, i am rusted and don't hope for a lot
Oh don't get me wrong I love my boys and girls in blue. the problem I am running in to is that I started with them in Mki so now I have a million models, just not the right ones to build the theme lists. Now My Gator bois on the other hand I have almost the whole line so list building is easier.
1. Rorsh + Dahlia + Mire and Wrestler is pretty standard. They do their thing 2. 5 x blind walker is for negating shooting and well - checking if 10 points heavy is a steal when it can have 20 pow and 11-13 threat range 3. Soulslave, Kwaak and witch doctor are pretty standard, Lanyssa is becasue blindwalkers are sooo slow. And on the other hand they can protect her without a problem 4. It's very hard to find a room for battle boar here, know i have 102 points in beasts, when i drop blind walker for a boar I have 99 points... etc etc
