I need to build a second list for the coming tournament, and pThagrosh has intrigued me for a while. pVayl is aggression incarnate, so pThagrosh seems like the obvious partner with his excellent defensive qualities. I can’t help but notice how much that setup looks like my Cryx setup, with a tiny aggressive girl and a big defensive beat stick.
Thagrosh, Prophet of Everblight
– Naga Nightlurker
Blighted Nyss Striders (Leader and 5 Grunts)
– Blighted Nyss Striders Officer & Musician
Farrow Bone Grinders (Leader and 3 Grunts)
Spawning Vessel (Leader and 5 Grunts)
This is my list so far, and I’ve got just a single game to test and tweak it. The plan is about as simple as the list. The Striders attempt to eliminate key models while FoW and Tenacity/Spiny Growth keeps the list in working order (Tenacity from the Shredder spawned by the pot, since I couldn’t find the points to include one otherwise).
The second turn it either engages or shoots some more, while getting Spiny Growth up on all the heavies, and with Death Shroud and pThagrosh about 5″ behind the heavies it’s hopefully impossible to nuke them down. I’ll have to see how that goes come Monday, because the tournament is the following weekend.
