Ugh, how I miss playing Cryx. The latest podcast has reminded me again, how much I love eGaspy.
I seriously have the biggest raging boner for him.
As I mentioned in my previous post (3 List Circle) that I have an interesting tournament coming up in a month and I really want to do well. Circle are hard to do well with, I find them very taxing to play over a 5 round event- and this tournament is 7. Plus, I'm fairly confident I can do well with Cryx on next to no practice, because honestly they're that easy to play.. regardless of the fact I've barely played them in like 9 months.
Sooo... I'm sorta inspired by ep24. This is exactly why you guys didn't want to talk about Cryx.
What I hope to gain from this thread, is a) decision on 3 casters and b) iron out some lists and reinforcements to take.
I'll quickly gloss over the tournament format and expected meta first.
16 players, invite-only.
50pts, 3 lists, Divide and Conquer.
7 rounds, 1-5 is standard timed, 6-7 is deathclock.
Round 7 you can replay someone.
Expected meta is something like:
18% Khador, Menoth, Cryx, Skorne
12% Cygnar and Legion
Maybe 1% Farrow
I have both incarnations of Gaspy, Denny, Skarre, plus Coven and Scaverous. The last two I have very little experience with but I have enough time to get some games in. If I still owned Terminus, he'd probably be in- but I sold him.
eGaspy is locked in. I have extensive experience with him.
pSkarre probably. I have limited experience with her.
I used to play a lot of eDenny as my solution to Khador back in the day. Nyss and MacNaile, Marked for Death, feat. Huge threat range and DEF debuffs usually means I wipe WGI off the table.
pGaspy is possible, he was my first caster ever and I wouldn't say no to coming back to him. Problem is, eGaspy's got BLT and pGaspy doesn't have a DEF debuff. So maybe not.
I haven't played eSkarre or pDenny in eons.
I wouldn't mind an excuse to play the Witch Coven I painted up ages ago and fielded once.. but I think they may want a lot of the same characters as eGaspy.
10 Thralls, U/A
10 Blood Witches, Hag
Feels a little awkward due to 3x10 infantry. Difficult to maintain spacing. Mweh.
a) What 3 casters and why?
b) Suggested lists?
See, I normally wouldn't NEED to make this sort of post about Cryx but I sorta gave them up for 2012. I'm extremely out of the loop.
