Pawel and I got together last night to have a 500 point Hordes game last night at the Trumpeter Club Friday Game night.
Pawel has his Everblight force (Blighted Archers and Swordsmen, Forsaken, Seraph, Carnivean, two Shredders and Lylyth) and I pulled out my Circle army. I’ve been playing around with using Baldur andÂ the Woldwatcher and Woldwarden but failed to realise last night that it left me with only 5 possible points of Fury generated each tur. Oops.
The rest of the army was a unit of Tharn Ravagers, a unit of Druids,Â the Shifting Stones, and the Lord of the Feast.
My first turn launch of the Lord of the Feast worked well as I was able to attack and destroy the leader from his Blighter Archers but I really should have attacked the Swordsmen instead. The Archers are still quite effective without their Leader since their abilities are all unit abilities and not orders. Without their leader the Swordsmen would have required Lylyth to get them to charge.
Pawel and I played the “charged distance” stand-off on one flank with his Swordsmen trying to stay out of range of my Ravagers.Â This went on for a few turns until I needed to get my Ravagers into a position to attack the centre of Pawel’s army after he concentrated his Seraph and Carnivean there.
In the end Pawel was able to take out most of my army and then kill Baldur.
I think that the concentration of Elemental Constructs with Baldur requiresÂ a 750 point level to be really effective. The constructs are expensive and at 500 points that doesn’t give you a lot of flexibility.
The Lord of the Feast Launcher with the Shifting Stones is quite effective but you need to pick a good target to try and remove a leader from.
I realise now that I was having a lot more fun with Kaya and so I might go back to using her for a while.
TheÂ Carnivean’s breath weapon is a lot more effective than I would have thought. It took out my Shifting Stones and 2/3s of my Ravagers.
