Klaw Goes WTC: Pre-Tournament Ramblings

So, since the lists have been published, here are a few pre-WTC observations, brought to you by me1. Lets start with the biggest elephant in the room: Sweden Dynamite all playing Cryx. A team that missed out on a top 10 finish last year by SoS, now going for the gimmick. I’m not sure which aspect shocks me the most – Rickard abandoning Minions, or the fact that they totally stole the idea from Portugal Kult. Sweden Nobel...

Klaw Plays Trolls pt 8: The Dragonfather

So here we are. After much contemplating and testing, my venture into Trollbloods has settled on Grissel1 and Madrak2. No bandwagon things like Runes of War (that list is so 2013) or Evolutionary Elementalism (playing that got me almost as miserable as my opponents).

When a few local players signalled that they wanted to improve their gaming, I didn’t hesitate and started up a small initiative, alongside our gaming group’s regular initiatives (leave it to the Belgians – Ed.). We started out small and simple, just a regular SR tournament, two 50 point lists....

Klaw plays Trolls, Intermezzo 1: Mauling a Mauler

Playing a different army means that one has to get models together, also known as New Army Syndrome. I’m not the guy to just glue the models together and shlap the official colour scheme on them, no, I like to make things a little more difficult for myself. I always start new projects with fresh courage, telling myself that, this time, I will really create an army to the best of my abilities, one I can be proud of, maybe win...
