Tonight I roll 1,000pts out in my first real TK game. I've had enough papercraft and theorycraft to prepare me (I hope) and I've got a less-than stellar army across the table (Orcs n' Gobbos).
The enemy general is more experienced than I, but I've watched him play so I know what I should expect; A screening unit of Gobbos w/ 3 or more fanatics, a block of 20+ Black Orcs with a Boss, one or two NG Shammies or Orc Shammies, 20+ Boyz in another unit, possibly a spearchukka or a Snotling wagon.
My list for tonight is:
Prince w/ LA, GW, CoS
LP, Heiro, CoD and Jar
LP, Steed, Staff of Ravening
12 Skellies w/ Bows, Musician
20 Skellies w/ LA/HW/S, Full Command (Prince here)
5 Skellie Light Horse
SSC w/ Skulls o' the Foe
I'm going to try and run with a refused flank, bubbling around the SSC and Heiro if I can get a hill in my deployment zone. I'm hoping the Staff will seriously hurt his Gobbo screen, and then I'm going to try and double fire the SSC into his black Orcs. I'm going to save my dispel dice for Waaghs and Warpath if he gets it. The mounted LP will stick with the light horse early, and split off once they can find a flank charge. I'll deploy the Scorp using ICFB if I see any warmachines or unattended Shamans, otherwise, I'll put it on a flank with the light horse and the mounted LP.
Anything else I should be afraid of? I'll do a batrep tomorrow and report back with my results!
Your plan sounds good
Just one suggestion, maybe drop the 5 Light Cav for 3 Carrion, and set the fanatics off asap
I don't have the Carrion to do so, a unit of 4 is next on my buying list though!
Go with 3 or 5 when you do Is it possible that you could proxy them for now?
I suppose I could. They are on the same base as an Ushabti, correct?
Yup, 40mm sq.
WD, how experienced was this OnG opponent? Im currently going through your report making some comments. Look for my reply there... i think youll be a bit... surprised.
Not terrible so. He has, maybe, ten games under his belt. Maybe 15?
Hmm, fair enough. Still, a few things to keep an eye on next time. BlOrcs definitely don't test for animosity, let him know that, its kinda important lol.
