Another Thursday night campaign night and some more games and additions to my force. On the painting side, I added some Trollkin Scouts to my army. That finishes up a complete Borka Drunk and Disorderly Tier 4 all the way up to 50 points, which I’m really proud about.
Here are the offending Trollkin Scouts, complete with hog underarm, tooth and tail trophies, spyglass, moonshine mug, and of course: whelp banjo player. This was the most complex Trollblood unit I’ve painted in terms of everything going on with them, so it was a lot of fun to work on even though it took a bit of time.
This week of the Carnage at the Confluence Campaign we had a special treat: Ryan ran an Iron Kingdoms Roleplaying game that featured many of the league players running a single Legion of Everblight character on a special mission to capture enemy officers. However, before that happened, Ryan and I snuck in a quick game as well. We played 35 points game against Vayl2, again running my Borka Drunk and Disorderly Tier 4 list. At 35 points, that’s Borka, Earthborn, two Winter Trolls (with tier discount), max Champions with Skaldi, Trollkin Scouts, Stone Scribe Chronicler, and a set of Troll Whelps.
Ryan’s growing Legion of Everblight force was commanded by Vayl2, and featured a Carnivean, a Scythean, a Shredder, a full unit of Warspears plus their Chieftan, and a Beast Mistress with three additional Shredders. We faced off and I got the first turn, so my forces rushed forward to contest the zones.
The newly-painted Trollkin Scouts performed admirably, as they can hit pretty well with their gang ability, and under Borka’s Mosh Pit spell effect, that makes their strikes all the more destructive.
Borka did as Borka does, managing to survive a frontal assault from a Carnivean as a trap to lure the nastiest heavy close to my lines. Once the rest of his force finished off all of Vayl’s beasts, Vayl had no choice but try and spell-blast her way to victory, but came up short. Borka wandered up and finished Vayl off with a few melee strikes. A fun game as always against a great opponent.
The win today brought me to dead even in my Trollbloods games. I’m still learning the ropes with the force, but playing Borka consistently has helped me a lot. I just saw that the new ADR was released for the next season, and-of course-Borka isn’t on it. So I’ll have to paint up some other casters or practice more Grissel to get myself ready to go forward in Mark III.
