Klaw Plays Trolls pt 9: Guess Who’s Back!

Grissel. Grissel is back, I was never gone. Anyway. We had this little Steamroller event last Saturday, relaxed atmosphere, single list, 42 points. I wanted to play Trolls again, it’s the time of year that still qualifies as “after the WTC”, so it was time for a trip to the dojo. Trolls are in a very strange place nowadays. It seems that Flanzer’s legacy continues to linger1, and that the only recent release...

Klaw Goes WTC: The Top 10 Teams Identified

It’s a sunny Friday afternoon, I’m mucho interested in doing things that aren’t work. I spy a certain Rickard on my Facebook chat, and strike up a conversation on which teams we think will go 5-1 at the coming WTC. I nominate them, Rickard gets in a yay or a nay. We come up with the following list: USA Stars, USA Stripes, Australia Wombat, Scotland Irn, Sweden Nobel and Germany Dichter Denker. It was a fun...

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.

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). No, just a strong control ‘caster, and a ‘caster whose army kills everything it touches. Small battlegroups, lots of melee infantry, that’s where...

Klaw Plays Trolls pt 7: Team Troll

I’m a total fan of team tournaments. To me, the most fun way to be competitive is to compete in a group. Lately, team tournaments have been thriving in Germany, and us Belgians’ plans to conquer that nation have become more and more concrete. One thing led to another, which meant Christophe, Laurens1 and I drove to Bonn on a fine morning, ready to kick some German behind. Our team name, Schabouwelijk Droog, dates from the...
