Rise of the Warlocks!

The last two Lesser Warlocks have arrived and the list with all four Lesser Warlocks takes another step closer to reality. It’s going to be either Circle or Trollbloods and I’m not sure which of them is best. I was originally thinking Mohsar would do well with an Argus, a Gorax, and two Bone Grinder units, but the FURY issue requires another Warbeast and then support becomes an issue.

I could go with pKrueger which would also give me some solutions to infantry, but then Rök has been released for Trollbloods so Primal is available there as well (though fitting Rök in will be hard). Hunter’s Mark is available for Circle but Rush is available for Trollbloods, and while Circle can combine Hunters Mark & Primal I think Calandras Star Crossed could be interesting with Serpent Strike from Skarath (Riposte).

I think I’ll try pKrueger first since his FURY load is easier to manage, I have more of the models needed, he can provide reach to the beasts, and he can handle some of the infantry problems himself.

I’m just missing a Gorax to field it actually… I could proxy it on Monday… I think I will! I should really bring that to the Danish Masters and keep my camera ready for the look on peoples faces when it’s unveiled in all it’s glorious failure!

  1. Hunter’s mark is available for Trolls through Lanyssa Ryssyll.

    • Hmm that’s true… another point up for Trolls then. It’s a tough choice between Calandra and pKrueger, but I’ll still try Krueger first seeing as I have almost all the models.

  2. I really would like to try the Trollblood version. Just never had the cojones to put it onto the table.

  3. Geez, this is stupid! I love it :D I can take my Farrow against it, if you want an easy fight :P

    Also, I’m really looking forward to painting Daliah & Skarath for you!

    • It’s going to look fantastic. I’m painting Brun & Lug today and he’ll be dark and brooding like the others, and then as the only model not dark and brooding… Dahlia & Skarath… it will be a sight to cause sore eyes :D

  4. A very funny concept indeed :)

  5. Sadly it won’t be tested today. I’ve been busy and to work the weekend shift so I haven’t had time to put them together :)

  6. Do u rate Dahlia & Skarath as i’m thinkin of including them in my retribution army?

    • They’re horrible, don’t do it unless it’s because you really like the models, or unless you can buff Skaraths defense against both melee and ranged in which case it becomes viable.

  7. Saved me buying the model cheers :)

  8. Hah, I love the way the models are stuffed into tiny tins. Makes it look like you’ve paid a tin pusher a visit to get your fix :)

    Great concept. Now go and make it work ! :D
