Today I wanted a game with my Asphyxious1 triple Cavalry list, but instead I ended up getting spanked in an Deneghra2 Vs. Lylyth2 match I should never have been in.
This led to hours of mumbling into my pathetic excuse for a beard (mainly about the tournament issues with Legion & Cygnar), which led nowhere until one of the other guys at our little games day suggested I try building my Skarre1 list without the Kraken.
With that 19 point block out of the list, a world of interesting options opened up, and I found something I think might really bloody work! I thought back to the games I had during the Danish Masters 2013, and how much I enjoyed having 20+ Incorporeal models with Deneghra2, and asked myself why I shouldn’t simply do the same with Skarre1.
Pirate Queen Skarre
Bane Riders (Leader and 4 Grunts)
Blackbane’s Ghost Raiders (Leader and 9 Grunts)
Mechanithralls (Leader and 5 Grunts)
Necrosurgeon (Necrosurgeon & 3 Stitch Thralls)
Satyxis Blood Witches (Leader and 9 Grunts)
– Satyxis Blood Hag
Soulhunters (Leader and 4 Grunts)
This list should do well against many Legion setups, and things like Saeryn & Bethayne should be doable with Deneghra2 instead. The list can circumvent the Covering Fire issues against Cygnar, with Ghost Raiders and Cavalry, while having the stamina to sustain heavy casualties against massed small arms fire.
The list can run up 21 Incorporeal models that must be dealt with, and dealt with before the cavalry arrive to seal the deal, so I’m very much looking forward to test this, and see how reality measures up to theory here.
