Since I don't want to be a lesser man, I will also create a thread where I shall blog about the Motherlands glorious victories.
So, here's a link to my Photobucket and pics of all the models I have painted so far.
I own the following models.
- Kommander Sorscha
- The Butcher
- Kommendant Irusk
- Man-o-war Demos (4 models)
- IF Pikemen (10) with Unit attachment
- Assault Kommandos (10)
- Mortar team
- Greylord Ternion
Totals at 1020pts, altough I can't use all 3 casters in that.
Last game I played was last Sunday, 500pts against Trollbloods (my regular opponent).
The list I used looked like this:
Army Points: 495/500
Victory Points: 20
- Kommandant Irusk
Iron Fang Pikemen (
Man-o-War Demolition Corps (4)
- Iron Fang Officer and Standard Bearer
It was a pretty close game, but it ended with my IFPs butchering Doomshaper. My men of the match was defiently the IFPs. They thrashed a Mauler, an Impaler and Doomshaper! But I got the bad end of the Trollkin Champions... Man they are though! Good arm, good DEF when in btb and they hit like hammers striking puppies after a few have gotten the chance to strike! They chopped down my Widowmakes and Demos with ease.
I want to get another game on thursday, but we'll see and on the 24th I will participate in a 500pts Steamroller 3 tournament.
Welcome to the halls of the PP blogs
The strength of the Reds is growing! You have so many units I want DMCamel! Iron Fangs, Greylords, Mortar, mabe Kommandos, I need more expandable income. Irsuk boosts any infanty to an amazing new level (with battle lust and uber-tough aka feet), and Iron Fangs are a great unit to start. Glad to hear about the win against the Trollbloods, last time I played them they killed me (stupid Champions).
Yeah curse those Champions! So cool and so powerful! I will need to take them out quickly next time...
So, played a game against my Trollblood-friend again. I used Irusk, a Destroyer, a Kodiak, 4 Demos, 8 Assault Kommandos and a Manhunter. It was a very close game, with me only having 2 Demos and Irusk left at the end of the game. Those damn champions I tell you, altough I managed to take a couple down before they delivered their pain.
I rally liked the list I fielded and it will probably be a list that I will use more often in the future. Kommandos + Battle Lust should be nasty against light/medium infantry.
I would suggest getting a Man-O-War Kovnik as Irusk does better with one 'jack (and since I love 'jacks I just use a jack marshal to get more). The reason is as follows: Irusk should always be upkeeping superiority, period. Giving you one super 'jack. Also, he should be casting Inhospitable Ground / Blood Lust / Iron Flesh every round (as they're awsome spells). What you have left is 3 focus, exactly enough to jack up one 'jack. With a Kovnik you can field more 'jacks, although they don't do as well as they could with a caster. Right now I use a Destroyer with him, although I'm going to switch it with a Juggernaut, and see how that works out.
Try hitting the Champions with a full IFP squad with attachment, while casting Blood Lust on them and poping Irusk's feet. That should level the squad, and if not, give you a second shot at it next turn (because even though they have tough, you have super-tough).
I think Irusk works with 2 'jacks if you know exactly what you want to do every turn and direct your focus based on that. I all comes down to focus management.
I don't really want to spend more cash on my Khadorans at the moment since I already have loads of stuff that needs to be painted (and I'm expanding my Skorne towards the end of the month). I try to work out stuff with what I have and I have been using my IFPs several games in a row now so I want to try out my Assault Kommandos for a few games now (although they aren't the most optimal unit against my regular foe since his army consists of a Champion unit, Doomshaper, 2 Impalers, 1 Axer and a Mauler - ie. only hard stuff!).
Yeah I have considered the Kovnik since it is a pretty nice concept, although the model isn't to nice IMO. The axe is waaaaaay to big.
Had a 500pts game against Cygnar today.
8 Sword Knights
8 Trenchers + UA
6 Gun Mages
Gun Mage captain
No 'jacks! Son of a bitch! Oh well, I'll kill him anyways I thought!
Putting it with few words, it was a slaughter! On both sides! At the end of the 6th turn (Caine blasted Irusk ;_; ) I had I had my Kodiak (ie. not disabled or destroyed, but it went inert when Irusk went down) and Irusk but he was killed so you could say I was wiped. My opponent had a heavily damaged Caine (I managed to lock him in meleé but never got the chance to smash him down), who recieved most of his damage when he walked out of combat with my Kodiak but I didn't manage to kill him (darn!) and 2 Gun Mages who were at the other side of the table (ie. in my deployment zone) due them running after Irusk had blasted 3 of them with Airburst. Slaughter I say!
Even with him using no 'jacks it was a very good game. Lots of killing and that is what I enjoy.
I enjoyed this list a lot and it will be one of those that I take to the tournament on Saturday, along with this one:
10 IFPs + UA
I'm also painting my Destroyer at the moment. Aiming to get it down for teh tournament.
killin' is my bid'ness and bid'ness is GOOOD!
W/D/L Eleventy trillion billion/NONE/ NONE - I am STILL rulezor!
WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
