Welcome to Librarium Online!
I played the championship battle in our campaign a couple of weeks ago and wanted to give an update on how it went(finally)
It was a 2500pt battle which I used Drycha's Army for (first time i've used her) The list I used is posted in the Army Lists section.
This guy likes to bring the Anvil of Doom and fortify around it...but today, he didn't bring it. Instead he brought the lord on the throne.
The board was setup for us and was really interesting. River down the middle, mountain peak on 2 opposite corners, and a lot of forest in the center. The mountain was on 3 plateaus, with all of the forest at the lowest point.
The thing that was great for me was being able to place my 6" forest on a higher plateau, and surf it toward him. By the end of turn 3, I had this forest along with a big one on the bottom floor all the way up at his front lines. I thought he was going to forfeit at this point.
I sat in the forest with 2 treemen and just kept using strangle roots on him until he came in to get me. At that point I would unlease 5 Tree Singing attacks in the magic rounds and killed every guard around the throne before he reached the treeman.
All of his war machines had their view obstructed by my surfing forests. I was also able to put small units in 3 table quarters and just park them there (didn't even need them in the battle) More than half of his army was completely unable to ever get into combat.
It was a great victory
He said he's never leaving the anvil out again... lol
I've never been able to pull off that much treesinging against Dwarves - normally the little punters shut down my magic left and right. Sounds like a great battle.
unfortunately...the next WE player he will face is me
I'm thinking of going with a Spellweaver next time at lvl 4 with Lore of Beasts.
I'll take a BSB and 2 Branchwraiths with me and have the Bear's Anger on all 3 :yes:
