Khador 2015, Part 12 - Lady eZ and Vengeance

I'm not bored. I just can't summon the energy to do a showdown between Conquest and Victor like I did between Rager and Vanguard. So I'll go down the "easy" road, and talk about Lady Z some more - especially, her in the context of the Vengeance releases.

The theory behind this is that she originally has been developed together with those releases, and later switched places with Butcher3, so there may some surprising synergy there.

Pressure Cooker #2 - Redux

Played a fully painted game on the weekend! If you came here from Youtube - you're gadget-savvy, and know that Harkevich won against Gorten by assassination, top of five.

VIP: Definitely the Spriggan. His Reach, combined with the MOV bonus from Escort, really allowed him to contribute his power to two locations instead of one.
VUP: If I have to choose somebody - and I have to - I'll choose the Kodiak. The Marauder bullied his flag (and did three Combo-Smites), and the Kodiak heavily contributed with two Chain Attacks, he didn't kill anything (which the Devastator did do), and one of those 2h-Throws almost cost me the game.
Biggest Blunder: Staying put with Harkevich, when protective terrain was easily within reach was certainly unnecessarily risky, but 2h-throwing the Driller towards Gorten gave Fiona an opportunity which she wouldn't have had if I only threw him straight towards her table edge.
Army Changes: Take out a Jack - probably the Kodiak, since his abilities are pretty redundant in this type of list, and put in any kind infantry, most likely Winterguard, though. Anything that can screen Harkevich.

Above all, playing fully painted is awesome. And getting in a batrep where we were able to reset the models so accurately that we could play out a different ending? Big fat bonus.

So, until next time, farewell!

Khador 2015, Part 11 - Shieldguard Showdown!

With Reckoning came the Rager, an in-faction heavy with Shieldguard. He strode into the army - his army, his own god-given faction - and found his place contested.

By a miserable french llaelese light to boot!

Of course, this could not stand. Follow me beyond the break, where I compare the Rager to the Vanguard in context of the Khadoran army and Hunting Wolves in particular.

FIGHT!

Khador 2015, Part 10 - Lady E-to-the-m*****f***ing-Z

Third day of Lock & Load, third article in the series "Stuff Khadorans get for Christmas". As before, I'll only cover a single type of item per article to keep it clean, and this has thusly resulted in these three:

Victor revisited
Berserkers in Arms
• Lady E-to-the-m*****f***ing-Z

So join me as we look at the spoiled Zerkova2, do a little silly comparison to her first self, evaluate that, think about shit she can get done, her theme force as well as other lists and "drop targets" for her.

Khador 2015, Part 09 - Berserkers in Arms

Lock and Load (as well as L&L Outposts) are still going, so I keep going with looking at and overthinking what was spoiled - for my faction. This will eventually end in three articles:

- Victor revisited
- Berserkers in Arms
- Lady E-to-the-m*****f***ing-Z

If you join me beyond the break, we'll talk about disappointments, surprises, and potential of both the Rager and the Mad Dog.

Khador 2015, Part 08 - Victor revisited

Courtesy of L&L, everyone on the social media now has access to all the content of Reckoning (you can read that as kind of a criticism, I guess. 'Tis okay).

Since I'm not insane (quite yet. *cackle*), I will not deal with all of it in one go. Instead, we'll kinda split this up into three parts:

• Viktor Revisited
Berserkers in Arms
Lady e-to-the-m*****f****ing-Z

So, join me beyond the break for a comparison of my Viktor predictions with the actual crunch!

Khador 2015 Part 07 - Zerkova World Domination Tour, Initial Circle thoughts

Last thursday I got two games in (the first in roughly a year), and one of those actually was a ZWDT game - the other was only 35pts, so didn't count. The big game was against Morvahna1 with a Sacral Vault (with Robin M, Champion of SmogCon, at the helm), the small one was against Krüger2 (pardon the German spelling, can't help it).

Follow me beyond the break for lists, thoughts, and further considerations regarding Circle.
