Tonight I’ll try something entirely different. There was a lot of good suggestions in WCoG: 2 post, but true to my usual self I’ve ignored every single one of them in favor of something that is almost guaranteed to fail.
A while back I bought a bunch of Steelheads to use with pDeneghra. The Cavalry got themselves shot to shit without really doing anything, but the Halberdiers were great. Then last night I sat around thinking about things to put occultation on, and suddenly…
The Witch Coven of Garlghast
The Withershadow Combine
Steelhead Halberdiers (Leader and 9 Grunts)
Steelhead Heavy Cavalry (Leader and 4 Grunts)
Gorman di Wulfe
Ike the Scrap Thrall
I’m uncertain about including a Warwitch Siren instead of a Skarlock, but in most games the Skarlock has saved me a Focus every turn but done little else, while the Siren has saved a game and done pretty well in all others.
Assuming it’s not a Cygnar opponent this list might do well. In any case I’ve won three consecutive games with the WCoG now, so knowing that the Bane Knight setup works it’s time to move on.
