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...
