Crypt Lord Pentaverous / Forge Master Pentaver

Yes, I can't nor won't stifle my creativity most of the time. Which generally turns out to be sth like "The Numbers' Game" or stuff such as the Queen of Shadows or this.

I'll go into the Crunch after the break so you have a chance to GTFO in time. ;)

The idea of this homebrew Character/Warcaster is this: In the 40k universe (well, that's a bad start already), a Necron Overlord set forth on a Odyssey to find a way to finally stop their arch-nemesis (which I recall was 'Nids. There actually was Character like that, the "Silent King" or sth? Dunno.). However, the warp had a funny day, so the Overlords ship materialized on - pardon me, in - Caen. Partially, I might add.

He's awake and very observant of the surroundings, but he can only access rudimentary systems of his ship (like, the Sensors and Crew Teleporter, but no Weapons, Barracks, etc). His agenda is regaining Access to All Areas. Out of all the warring faction's, the Asthetic of Cryx (and his own similarity to an Iron Lich, and Gaspy in particular) appeal to him, but he can also affiliate with the Convergence.

Khador 2014 - Part 09/3: The beard, son! The beard!

It has dawned on me that, while trying to figure out the best ways to win in the Spell Draft format with Khador, I lost track of one thing I set for myself: It's the year of the beard!

Probably won't get out of that one!
Now let's recall that I mostly discarded Harkevich as a good Spell Draft 'Caster since his performance apparently was tied to his spell list (basically, Escort).

After the break, I'll try and figure out a solution!

Khador 2014 Part 09/2 Spell Drafter Armies

As promised in the last article, here are my current list ideas for the three 'Caster I singled out (Strakhov, Vlad2, Zerkova). Full disclosure of lists, thoughts, and other circumstances influencing my choice will follow after the break.

Seizing Command 09 - Sanctifier is over 9000

With the advent of Removed from Play: Decked Out, a particular Protectorate Deck idea I already had was brought to fruition. Back when we first started playing, I hardly ever won, yet still could boast "...but my Occupying Forces Pile is higher than yours!" That meant nothing, though.

With Invasion of Sul, PoM gets access to the Sanctifier. It's already a good piece in the tabletop, but in High Command it's downright great. For all that don't know it: It's power increases for every three cards in your Occupying Forces Pile - and thinning your deck by moving cards there kinda is PoM's shtick in WM:HC.

I will tell you all about my "Sanctifier is over 9000" deck after a short break.

Khador 2014 Part 09 - Spell Draft

There will be a Spell Draft tournament (eight participants) happening in my town at the 13th of Septembre. In this blog post, I'll talk about my initial thoughts on the matter, and probable Khador choices both army-wise and 'Caster-wise - and which one I can manage with my assortment of models.

Join me after the break, and let's find out if this end like some other "initial posts" I've made:

That's what you get for googling "Spell Draft".

Khador 2014 - Part 08: Three Dark Riders

PG_ The Captain did it.

At the very least, he made me do it.

Seriously, you can't just go and drop a phrase like "I'll play Harkevich, Zerkova and Strakhov as my three masters 'Casters" in front of a Hark'/Lady Z fanboi (i.e.: me), and not expect anything to happen. So I got in touch with him to inquire about details, which he shared with me (kindly enough, thanks a lot!), and in this post I'll jabber at length elaborate on my take on that particular line-up. I'll talk about the preliminary lists, their roles/opponents I'd use them against.

But we'll do that after the break.
