• Borka2 vs Ossrum

    Tactician Rhulic is just plain cheating No, really.  Wouldn’ you love Tactician Trollbloods? Theme: hammerstrike General ossrum Earthbreaker Seige Crawler Seige Crawler Forge guard Forge guard Artillery corps Artillery corps Bokur I don’t even think this was two turns.  The huge based models negate Borka’s feat.  They don’t do stationary.  And the periscope from the battle engines kills stealth on two targets. My turn 1 had my shuffling around terrain, and trying to claim board space. He advanced pretty quickly for dwarves. My turn 2 saw my long riders trying to attack and block stuff. The driller charges 10″ and

  • Borka2 vs Crosse2

    This will be brief, because the game was brief.  It serves as a reminder to play scenario,  since that is where the Borka2 double long rider list excels.  Assassinations can happen, but should only be attempted if 100% certain of success. The enemy: Crosse2 I sometimes get a little jealous of Mercs.  They are able to field two full 10-model units and 4 heavies and still pick up 4 free high-value solos.  This list runs 20 points of free stuff.

  • Saeryn & Rhyas with Hellmouth

    What? No Trollbloods? Every once in a while, it’s nice to take a quick break.  I pack demo armies when I head out to the local game store, and one of our players wanted to have a game that would be quicker than our 2 hour 75 point bouts. So I fielded Legion, with Saeryn & Rhyas, with a Hellmouth, half a unit of swordsmen,  Zuriel, Nephilim Soldier, and a Shredder. Game time The beauty of the Hellmouth is that it can park itself on the edge of a circle whether or not you go first or second.  If you

    Borka2 & Double Long Riders The idea of two cavalry units in an army is not new.  Some armies and factions love double cavalry.  The question I’ve been tossing around lately is whether Trollbloods have an effective double cavalry army waiting to be unlocked. Since I am primarily a Mk3 player, I don’t have much in the way of experience from which to draw. So off to the internet!  Problem is… there isnt much out there on running double long riders.  And to make matters worse, most of the info out there is based on the mk2 version of cavalry.

  • Borka2 vs Morghoul2

    Bearka Mk3v2 I’m looking for a good balance to Calandra, and being unsure as to whether I want to run her with Champions or Kriel Company, it’s difficult deciding how I want to run his army. Obviously, I want to be able to capitalize on his feat.  I also want a battlegroup that will push Borka’s innate awesomeness even further.

  • Calandra five games in

    I’m in five games with Calandra.  She’s different from what I’m used to playing, that is certain. I think she works well with minions.  Star Crossed helps her whole army.  Bullet Dodger helps the defense skew.  It isn’t as good as Even Ground (Madrak 1), but what is?  Bullet Dodger suffers from upkeep hate, and only affects one unit/model, doesn’ prevent knockdown, but does allow for a 2″ move. The experiment was to run her with Champions, to hit DEF 16 in melee, while base to base, and screen with warriors.  Bullet Dodger runs on the front line, until a

  • Calandra vs Goreshade3

    First outing The last game, with Gunnbjorn, combined with all the Madrak1 love had me thinking about my lists, caster synergy, and weaknesses in Gunnbjorn’s army. Gunnbjorn messes with ranged armies for a turn, but outside of that, doesn’t help his melee troops.  He also does absolutely nothing for minions.  I think he’ll do okay with the Sea King, but not in Band of Heroes. Calandra’s List I decided to test out the Champions, figuring a high defense unit would benefit from Bullet Dodger.  The Highwaymen might be cute here as well, but I feel the need to run Band

  • Gunnbjorn vs The Heretic

    Overview This is a battle in which I made one major error, and should have lost the game.  My opponent played well, making a strong assassination bid.  He had a 92% chance of success, but Gunnbjorn somehow survived assassination and squeaked out a win. Set up Scenario Breakdown!  No fancy stuff here.  Difficult to jump way ahead on scenario.  Two circles and a rectangle for scoring.  My strategy was to flood the rectangle and right circle with kriel warriors, and walk Gunny’s battlegroup up the center.
