Klaw Plays (a bit more) Trolls: The Belgian Masters XXX

Posted by on 6:23 am

All right, boys and girls, the most intimate gaming weekend on the calendar came and went, and as usual, it was fantasic, even if I say so myself. I’ve tried to combine organizing and playing (not a great idea, but now I’ve got that out of my system), and, given the models I had at my disposal, I came up with the following pair:   [Theme] The Power of Dhunia (Kolgrima 1) Kolgrima Stonetruth, Winter Witch [+28] – Dire Troll Bomber [19] – Dire Troll Mauler [15] – Earthborn Dire Troll [14] – Mulg the Ancient [22] – Troll Axer [10] – Trollkin Runebearer [0(5)] Feralgeist [2] Northkin Shaman [0(4)] Northkin Shaman [0(4)] Troll Whelps [4] Dhunian Knot [6] Krielstone Bearer & Stone Scribes (min) [6] – Northkin Elder [3] Swamp Gobbers Bellows Crew [2] [Theme] Band of Heroes (Madrak 1) Madrak Ironhide, Thornwood Chieftain [+29] – Dire Troll Bomber [19] – Troll Bouncer [9] – Trollkin Runebearer [0(5)] Fell Caller Hero [0(5)] Stone Scribe Chronicler [4] Trollkin Champion Hero [0(5)] Krielstone Bearer & Stone Scribes (min) [6] – Stone Scribe Elder [3] Long Riders (max) [20] Swamp Gobbers Bellows Crew [2] Trollkin Champions (max) [16] – Skaldi Bonehammer [5] Trollkin Champions (max) [16] – Trollkin Sorcerer (1) [3]   Basically: Kolgrima with the Mulgnode and some other stuff, and the trusted Madrak1 list I stole. Haven’t changed anything in it yet.   First round: Axel d’Haeyere with Khador (Breakdown) First round, I got drafted against Axel of team Belgium Griffons persuasion, who was rocking a Butcher3/Old Witch2 pair. Going into the match, I felt I had the tools with Madrak1, but that Butcher3’s personal threat would be a problem. I didn’t feel confident about Kolgrima, if only because I had played exactly one practice game with the list. The scenario is Breakdown, which anyone will tell you is a Trolls scenario. Two round zones, one rectangular one in between. Well, I’ll let you in on a secret: it might be a Troll scenario, but it definitely isn’t a Klaw scenario. I still think like a Cryx player, this scenario just doesn’t go fast enough for me. You’ll see why this is relevant soon. [Theme] Winter Guard Kommand (Butcher 3) Kommander Zoktavir, The Butcher Unleashed [+22] – Devastator [14] – Marauder [10] – Marauder [10] – Ruin [17] Kovnik Jozef Grigorovich [4] Winter Guard Infantry (min) [6] Winter Guard Mortar Crew [0(5)] Winter Guard Mortar Crew [0(5)] Winter Guard Rifle Corps (max) [13] – Winter Guard Rocketeer (3) [6] Winter Guard Gun Carriage [17]   I deploy my Long Riders to the right, and Champions in the middle and to the left. Axel has a Marauder on each side, the small winter guard unit to my right, Ruin, Butcher and the Devastator in the middle, the Carriage and the bigger unit Winter Guard to my left. I win the dice off and go first. We both run op aggressively. I start scoring on the right hand side, slamming his Marauder out of the zone with my Long Riders, and killing the random contesting Winter Guard. I’m playing quickly, I’m ahead on clock, all is well. However, I need to respect Butcher’s personal threat, and need him to commit, so terrain will keep the rest of my army safe on...

Chasing the Dragonfather ep 10: The Night Before Cryxmas

Posted by on 9:00 am

Hello dearest of listeners,   In this episode, Anthony, Klaas, and Ryan discuss lists that they think you need to plan for in 2018. We then give our very funded opinions on the new ADR, and finish by making wild predictions about the 2018 meta, because we’re prophets and wizards like that.   That being said, I don’t want to keep this gem from you:   Twas the night before Cryxmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The wardings were scratched on the chimney with care, In hopes that Asphyxious would not soon be there. The children were huddled all scared in their beds, While visions of bane thralls danced in their heads. And Caine in his ‘leathers, and Seige with no cap, Had just settled their brains for a long winter’s nap. When out on the field there arose such a clatter, He sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window he flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash. The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below. When, what to his gunfighters eyes should appear, But a swirl of soulfire, and a skeletal glare. With a little soul driver, so lively and quick, A Seether leapt forward, his claws going a-click . More rapid than greyhounds the Helljacks they came, And the Lich whistled, shouted, and called them by name! “Now Seether! now, Slayer! now, Harrower and Canker! On, Ripjaw! On, ‘Ripper! on, on Stalker and Nightwretch! To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall! Now dash away, Cygnarans, Dash away all!” As ghostly as moonlight that dapples the grass, When they meet with an obstacle, straight through it they pass. So into the fortress, the steel predators flew, With the eyes full of hunger, and Asphyxious too. And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof The crashing and crunching of an Iron Lich hoof. As I drew in my head, and was turning around, With teleportation Asphyxious came with a bound. He was made all of iron, from his head to his foot, And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot. A bundle of souls he had held in his cages, And he looked like a nightmare, a fear for the ages. His eyes-how they twinkled! His head without hair! His feat was a dickpunch, his spell list unfair! His droll little mouth was drawn up like in a grin, He clapped his hands gaily as the Spectral Legion came in. The stump of an puppy he held tight in his teeth, And the souls they encircled his head like a wreath. He had a free upkeep, where you’re Bound is all Helly Caine shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly! He was not chubby nor plump, never left on the shelf, Haley cried when she saw him, in spite of herself! A wink of his eye and a twist of his head, Soon gave me to know the grip of true dread. He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, Murdering warcasters, then turned with a jerk. And laying his finger aside of his...
