Rack City: Super Series and Denny 3

Posted by on 10:49 pm

Welcome back for another Rack City, where I delve deep into my experiences with the Cryx faction.  This article I will be focusing on my performance at the Super Series final, Australia’s equivalent of WMW.     I was not expecting to perform overly well at this event, given that I had spent the majority of the leadup time playing Guild Ball.  In fact, I had only a single practice game, after which I basically rewrote my list and then did not play any games at all with my lists.  Fortunately I had been working on the lists for quite a while, because the format was one I was a very big fan of – 3 List event, with no Divide and Conquer.  It means you are not locked into a terrible matchup and if you build a list specifically for one game, you know you can always drop it in that game.  I like it a lot.  I had designed three lists but I really only wanted to play one of them, and that was my Denny3 list.  I have been really trying to figure this caster out, working on heaps of list designs and this one that I settled on has a very broad selection of games it can play into.  It even has a very solid game into Cygnar, which is unusual for most Cryx lists. The list I settled on was as follows.   Deneghra, the Soul Weaver – Helldiver – Helldiver – Helldiver – Scavenger – Skarlock Thrall Cylena Raefyll & Nyss Hunters (max) Mechanithralls (max) + UA (Skarlock Commander) Necrosurgeon & 3 Stitch Thralls Necrosurgeon & 3 Stitch Thralls The Devil’s Shadow Mutineers Lord Rockbottom Master Gunner Dougal MacNaile Ragman Wrong Eye & Snapjaw     The Scavenger has actually been a little champion, surprising the crap out of me.  Anytime you can load up a jack with three focus as easily as you can, he can actually get a lot of work done. It is fairly targeted at Hordes, but that Cygnar game is also quite decent.  Having a decent portion of the list that is unable to be attacked until you are ready is extremely potent.   I had a third list, a Gaspy3 list but I didnt end up using it.  I did end up playing my Goreshade3 because the one thing I didnt feel like the Denny list could play into was a mirror match.  This ended up being one of my favourite lists I’ve ever written.  It was super grindy and attrittionally powerful and also had a pretty decent assassination threat.  I was surprised how much fun I had playing it.   Goreshade, Lord of Ruin – Deathjack – Skarlock Thrall Bane Knights (max) Blackbane’s Ghost Raiders (max) Soulhunters (max) The Withershadow Combine Bane Lord Tartarus Darragh Wrathe   Game 1: Matthew Kelly – Legion   The Super Series is run like the WMW Invitational, with brackets.  Unfortunately, as I had finished the season ranked highest, I would be playing 2nd place in the Last Chance Qualifier event, the Gauntlet.  That meant I had no idea what I would be playing against, so no forward planning for me!  My opponent ended up being a regular Brisbane player, Matt Kelly, who was using Legion.  Vayl1, Vayl2 and Lyl2, an...

Klaw Plays Trolls Pt 11: Ending the world

Posted by on 7:32 am

While a previous instalment had some thoughts on the most criminally underplayed warlock in the faction, I’ll continue with her soon-to-be ADR buddy Madrak2. As far as power level and underplaying go, he’s not very far behind1. My post-2015WTC experience with the World Ender started at the Belgian Masters XXX, by far the sexiest tournament on the planet. I was on the roster as a reserve player, and only heard on Friday evening that I was going to play. I had my Grissel list with all the things, and needed something to pair it with. After some dojoing with the German rising star of the medium base, Dominik de Cassan, we came up with the following: Madrak2 *Runebearer *Bomber *Impaler Max Krielstone +UA Fire Eaters Max Burrowers Min Scattergunners +UA Max Warders Fell Caller Hero Janissa Stone Scribe Chronicler Since, according to Dominik, I needed a Menoth drop next to Grissel. You will notice the single unit of Fire Eaters, well, that’s because I only own one, and no one had me any units to spare2. After lucksacking myself through the first round, I met Philipp Schäper, aka Brezel, the fearsome captain of Team Germany Bier & Brezel, in my second round. He had recently made the switch to Menoth, and when he saw my lineup, he reached for his revolver: Harbinger *Devout *Hierophant Max Errants + UA Max Zealots + UA Max Forgeguard + Attendant Priest Knights Exemplar Rhoven & his little friends Anastasia di Bray Madelyn Corbeau Nicia Piper Covenant Actually, a very interesting list there. Madelyn turns the Awe factor up to 11 (quite literally, too), and Anastasia is just full of annoying goodness. Philipp obviously knows what he’s doing, goes first, and meticulously positions his army in the middle of the board. I shuffle and durdle and amateur a bit too, but manage to assault his Errant UA dude to death with my Fire Eaters. Always a pleasure. Philipp continues to press forward with his army, he kills the Fire Eaters and feats. I unburrow my Burrowers but take lots of damage trying to buff them, because I’m a derp, mostly. My Bomber walks up and tries to shoot Harbinger, but then notices that he’s within 11″, which means Awe3. Due to the extra -2, Bombur4 misses and scatters onto my Burrowers instead. It seems that luck favours the stupid – only two Burrowers get damaged, and one of those makes his tough check. The bad positioning of the Bomber has a second downside: I have to move Janissa to put her wall in front of the Bomber again, netting her a few points of damage too. The Burrowers have great fun with the Errants, but them hitting on 8ths like bosses is perfectly offset by Brezel making his tough checks like an even bossier boss, meaning the death toll on the Errants is neglegible. My Scattergunners do manage to CMA Nicia to death, which is already something. In Philipp’s turn all my burrowers die, while my objective is destroyed by the Knights Exemplar, who also score on the flag. The cluster of models in the middle makes it nearly impossible for him to bring out his hammer dwarfs fully, meaning my Bomber only takes superficial damage after his valiant attempt on Harbinger’s life the previous turn. He does get...
