Vayl, Consul of Everblight: 5

I’ve managed to annoy some form of dice deity. In last nights game three Angelii charged already damaged Khador Warjacks, and the following happened. The first missed, the second rolled triple ones on damage, and the third rolled 3-1-1 on damage.

They all charged for free due to the Hellion, which meant that they could each buy two additional attacks hitting on 4+ and boosting damage. The total damage inflicted was 19 out of an expected 66-75 damage average.

The following round this trend continued, with me failing just about every dice roll I made. I played almost flawlessly for the first time in six months, and so very little did it help. On the upside I had brought a Harrier and it performed fantastically with free charges, killing no less than three Iron Fang Pikemen because it couldn’t actually miss!!!

I understand why the Neutralyze version of eVayl is so good, but I think I’ll give non-tier eVayl some more game time instead, as I’ve enjoyed those games with her more (and won more). I’ve decided to give Annyssa the chance to prove that the increased RAT is worth it, and if the dice keep doing what they did today RAT 11 with Annyssa & Icy Grip might be just enough to make the Raptors hit something.

One point left makes this a bit strange. I’ll be trying out the Harriers to work with the ranged element, opening lanes or picking up stragglers. Reintroducing the BFS to make the Angelii more reliable and to allow the Raptors to finish heavy targets with melee.

I was considering trying out Archers with the Hellion, since Ready Ammo and the Hellions Blight Storm interacts in wonderful ways, but I doubt the tournament time limits will agree with me having to perform 22 attacks from one 10 point unit.

  1. I’m considering a minimum Spawning Vessel and Bone Grinders so I can make the Harriers instead, but I’m not to sure about it.

  3. I’m keen to hear more about your non-tier Vayl, especially with the Raptors, thinking about trying this out myself.

    • Well, I had to get my Cryx fix but maybe I’ll get around to it. I do believe it will do well, because what it lacks in raw power it makes up for in flexibility, and best of all: it doesn’t look a thing like the Jake (Neutralyze) version :)
