So first off, buckle in for some odd battle reports. We kicked off our Permanent Death League at Drawbridge games on Thursday, so as Warlocks and named solos/warbeasts/units die, I’m likely to have some oddities in my lists for those games. That said, I’m also squeezing in some practice on my Primal Terrors lists in the meantime.
To that end, I finished up painting the Blightbringer for my army. After the CID it seems to be a really solid piece to support what Primal Terrors lists can do, so I wanted to get it completed.
The games below he’s still in progress, sadly., but I wanted to get him on the table and start trying out Primal Terrors asap.
I started off the Permanent Death League running Vayl2, just because I wanted to get some experience with her but didn’t mind if she perished early in the league either. Clockwise from left: my game against Colton’s Khador and Vlad1, ended in a scenario loss for me. He ran Vlad with all the heavy armor infantry, and I just couldn’t keep up the pressure on my right flank. Vayl2 fared better into Justin’s Khador and Sorscha1, mainly because being immune to cold during the Feat can save your life in an assassination attempt. Finally I played a really hairy game against Larry’s Maelok list with all the Gatormen. He had a huge scenario advantage, but I managed to get the assassination thanks to a hellmouth tentacle, some shooting by my beasts, and Kallus1 finishing the gator off.
This table looked so nice, I wanted to include the bigger photo. This was a match with Thagrosh2 against Steve’s Helynna list. Was a good slugfest, and a Permanent Death League game that ended with four total characters leaving the league (two on each side). I managed to assassinate Helynna with the Blightbringer doing a slam attack that finished her (Eilish Garrity, before he died, had inflicted a lot of damage on her already with his little defensive spell ability).
Overall I’m pleased with the Blightbringer as a piece. My only (and growing) concern with Legion is that I want to play a lot of the big pieces, so transporting them has been a real pain. I’ll have to sort out some more transportable lists (rather than all the huge bases). Hmmmm.
