ArosCon: Fortune or Flounder!

Alright, true to my WM/H style I’m attending tomorrows tournament with two lists I’ve never played, and a grand total of one game between my casters. This is going to be a spectacular success or I’ll end up floundering at the very bottom.

Damiano – Lord of Darkness

Captain Damiano, Lord of Darkness
– Nomad
– Nomad
– Buccaneer
Rhupert Carvolo
Ragman
Anastasia di Bray
Kayazy Assassins (Leader & 9 Grunts)
– Kayazy Assassin Underboss
Kayazy Assassins (Leader & 9 Grunts)
– Kayazy Assassin Underboss
Croe’s Cutthroats (Croe & 9 Grunts)
Kayazy Eliminators
Kayazy Eliminators
Objective: Bunker

I’ve talked a bit about this list, and to be perfectly honest I think it’ll be way better with one unit of assassins traded in for WE&SJ, and then Anastasia upgraded to Lanyssa, but I need at least one run at having all the assassins on the table.

Magnus- Lord of Leftovers

Magnus the Warlord
– Reinholdt
– Renegade
– Renegade
– Nomad
– Nomad
Lanyssa Ryssyl
Lord Rockbottom
Ragman
Dahlia Hallyr
– Skarath
Horgenhold Artillery Corps
Horgenhold Artillery Corps
Lady Aiyana & Master Holt
The Devil’s Shadow Mutineers
Objective: Armory

This is the best second list I could feasibly paint, and I did. It has three heavies, a couple of lights, some solid – but very vulnerable – shooting, and hopefully enough tricks to even the playing field. In the picture one of the Renegades is unpainted, but I’m getting a painted version tomorrow at the tournament, so he’s just there as a placeholder (I got him in a deal after I had already bought the other painted version). This will end in tears, of this I have no doubt, but I’m not sure if it ends up being mine or theirs!

  1. And of course I’m torn… I really think WE&SJ with Damiano is better…

  2. It was flounder. I got run the fuck over by theme forces, and spent the weekend raging about the piss poor decision making in creating themes as the main competitive options. Then we got real drunk… well before that as well… good stuff
