I'll be playing a five thousand pointer soon and was wondering if that's a large enough force to justify using Kroak. I mean... sure, he has some shiny trinkets. Yes, he can burninate cities... but come on, so many points? Pfft. And if not at 5k, when? I COULD go as high as eight, if that has any bearing on your decisions.
The alternative is basically any other combination of lord and hero choices, including multiple slann, excluding crap-gar.
Thank you in advance for your insight.
If I was playing 5k I would go for lord kroak, just to see his awesome magic potential! It's not the end of the world if it all goes Pete Tong
Well fluff wise I would bring out lord kroak when I play about a 100 000 point battle, since anything less then that is just a scouting force for him. but a 5000 point battle seams alright, and you'll have a good amount of point left over for your army. But unless your friend brings something really big your going to be really outnumbered, but with the huge point limit he will probably bring a dragon or something along those lines.
Well have fun with your game
Furthermore, would it be exceedingly unsporting if I were to, say, include Kroak, a second generation Slann, and two level two Priests? Bear in mind that I'll be playing against equally split Dwarf and High Elf armies. (I fear the shoostings and sparkly magics!)
Depending on the army setup 2 slann and a priest wouldn't be a bad idea at 5k. Dwarves can pack some major dispellage and high elves have a lot of magic power and can dispel decently plus they have drain magic.
Ow, right in my army list. I decided, foolishly, to bring a single slann (not Kroak) and three priests. The combined Dwarf and Elf dispelling power limited me to about half my spells per turn, effectively negating a fourth of my army list. The Dwarven cannonade took care of the rest.
So yeah, I got the ever-living crap massacred outta me. Heh, that's what I get for trying to "balance" my force. In the future, I'ma stick with what works. Well, what works better than that, heh.
Thanks for all the help, even if I didn't really listen well.
Next week, I'll be playing the Dwarf feller, banking on him wasting points on antimagic... while I'll field a zillion skinks so shoot his beards clean off! Yeah, that's right, not bringing magic. Just you wait, I'll rock so hard, my own socks will evacuate, along with my opponent's bowels!
Either that, or lose horribly to his perfectly guessed cannon shots.
