Real Life…..

Been too long since I posted, mostly due to real life kicking the shit out of us.  Still struggling to deal with the issues, but it’s affecting my gaming/painting enthusiasm.  Though recently I have picked up a little, with some new models I got from my PG points; which got painted and played at the tournament in Dundee.

My current main project, is building a Master Necrotech Mortenebra list, from 25 pts which I played in Dundee; to 50pts which I hope to include a Kraken when it is released.  Starting at 25pts I took this Tier 3 list:

  • Master Necrotech Mortenebra
  • Deryliss
  • Deathjack
  • Stalker
  • Stalker
  • Scavenger
  • Warwitch Siren
  • Warwitch Siren
  • Necrotech + Scrap Thrall
  • Scrap Thralls

At the LGS yesterday, I took it up to 35pts; adding in a Harrower.  Feeling this would give me great infantry killing potential, with the 2″ Reach/Thresher on the Harrower.

Ramping it up to Tier 4 50pts, add in a Kraken Colossal; the list for now looks like this:

  • Master Necrotech Mortenebra
  • Deryliss
  • Kraken (Colossal)
  • Deathjack
  • Reaper
  • Stalker
  • Stalker
  • Scavenger
  • Warwitch Siren
  • Warwitch Siren
  • Necrotech + Scrap Thrall
  • Necrotech + Scrap Thrall
  • Scrap Thralls

With the Kraken in there and benefiting not only from Tier 2 + Tier 4, the Harrower is redundant in this list now.  The Stalker/Scav Assassination Crew (Overrun + Spectral Steel, huge combo for assassinations) are still backed up by the Sirens, while the the DJ and Reaper could potentially be used for zone denial.  Kraken, with Spectral Steel’s ARM buff puts it in the league of Khador jacks.  So now all I have to do, is wait for the Kraken to awaken; so I can test this list out.  Overall, I am excited about the Colossals; I think they bring something the Battle Engines didn’t – Versatility.
