Tournament on February 2nd

We have a tournament on February 2nd. I’m in the process of borrowing and/or speed painting a list I’ve wanted to field for a very long time, and though I have no idea who’s going to play second fiddle to it, I’m finally bringing ‘the shooting gallery’ to the table.

Warwitch Deneghra
– Deathripper
– Deathripper
Croe’s Cutthroats (Croe and 9 Grunts)
Cylena Raefyll & Nyss Hunters (Cylena and 9 Grunts)
Sea Dog Crew (Leader and 9 Grunts)
– Mr. Walls Sea Dog Crew Quartermaster
The Withershadow Combine
Bosun Grogspar
Doc Killingsworth or Gorman (cannot decide)
Lord Rockbottom
Dougal MacNaile
Skarlock Thrall
Warwitch Siren

It’s beautiful! If this list manages to pull of a perfect round (Feat + debuffs + everyone is in range) there will be 40+ shots/sprays flying across the table, followed up by more shooting and/or some very nasty charges from the list.

  1. Ugh, I hate it when cryx starts to outshoot my LoE. But that’s pDenny and the awesomeness of what Mercs can do for ranged-starved WM factions like cryx.

    On the other hand I shouldn’t complain, The new warspear UA looks like a ton of fun as long as you can keep him alive.

    Hm…Feb02 isn’t that far away, curious how it will go…will you twitter your results?

  2. If we don’t pair up naturally in the tourny, consider yourself challenged for a game in the evening on Saturday or something ;)

  3. It’s a fucking brutal list :D I’ll be there too ofc, spreading some Cryxian love ^^

    • It might be brutal but it’s also an activation sequence nightmare. I had my first game with it tonight and lost to Paul, mostly since I messed up activation sequences and didn’t know the gazillion Pirate rules and stats by heart (Paul having dice of fire didn’t exactly help, but it was my own fault I lost).

      I think I need to simplify the list a bit, or figure out what to do with a pile of solo characters when the Pirates go through rough terrain… The Pirates were amazing though, and one unit + Grogspar killed two full units of Doom Reavers on feat turn.

      Croe’s were not in the game because they failed a morale check, and I took the abomination checks in the wrong order, and left them out of Rockbottoms command range after spending the first coin to save the Sea Dogs from abomination.

      Still, the list was brutal, and I had lost one model when Deneghra died :)

      • After giving it some more thought, I think Killingsworth is going to leave to make room for Gorman di Wulfe. I’ve sacrificed just about all my control pieces (Pistol Wraiths & Sirens) for more damage dealer, so Black Oil will really help.

        His cloud is nice, added damage against Colossals helps to alleviate the lack of Dark Shroud, and his synergy with Dougal is to good to pass up.

  4. Almost done painting, but then Mr. Walls arrived today, and now I feel bad bringing the borrowed Rockbottom & Walls to the table.

  5. I’m wondering if going second is such a bad idea with this list. It has some really impressive threat ranges with Dougal, and few lists can out-shoot it. If I go second I can actually get some first turn kills on an aggressive opponent… it’s worth exploring.

  6. *ahem* BattleReps!? :P

  7. Excellent :) Im tending my own sore throat with tea .. and battle-reps goes along way towards the road to recovery .. as long as we havent gotten this …
