I will have a match against death tomorrow. Expecting to see Legions of Nagash with new free unit return. There will be Vampire on ZD or one of the Mortarch and 40 skeletons. Allegiance: Seraphon Mortal Realm: Ulgu Leaders Slann Starmaster (260) - General - Trait: Vast Intellect - Artefact: Incandescent Rectrices Skink Starpriest (80) Saurus Scar-Veteran on Carnosaur (240) - War Spear - Artefact: Sword of Judgement Saurus Astrolith Bearer (160) Battleline 5 x Saurus Knights (90) - Lances 5 x Saurus Knights (90) - Lances 5 x Saurus Knights (90) - Lances Behemoths Bastiladon (280) Battalions Firelance Starhost (150) Endless Spells Balewind Vortex (40) Total: 1480 / 1500 Extra Command Points: 1 Allies: 0 / 400 Wounds: 67 We'll generate realm and battleplan randomly. General strategy is to protect slann on turn 1 with knights and summon skinks in movement phase, while Firelance march forward to meet the foe. With balewind in cover slann will have 2+ save and -1 to-hit because of Look Out! Add here Rectrices and he becomes very unattractive target besides his key role. He summons or cast spells depending on situation. I want to summon Scar-Vet on CO ASAP too. Starpriest serves as a Vassal and gives Venom to Saurus. Nothing special. If he dies, Slann summons another one. Astrolith Bearer hides behind slann doing what he always does - +1 to casts, +8 to range and d3 conjuration points. Carnosaur hunts VZoD and other nasty heroes. His goal to kill big monster and general quickly to shut down dead rising. Blade of Judgement on Warspear will do great. Slann will cast curse of fates on him to turn additional 5 to-hit into 6. The problem is if he somehow recieves -1 to-hit, artefact is simply wasted. But I want to try and see how it goes. Another possibility is Miasmic Blade, so I can stack up to -2 to-hit with Summon Starlight. Avoids skeleton horde. Knights support Carno in his hunt. They can also stop skeletons for a while. Last game 5 knghts managed to bring VZoD from 11 to 1 wound with 1 activation. Scar-Vets command abiltity will help them a lot. Bastiladon stands near Astolith and shoot with rerolls. It can deplete skeletons quickly too. Also serves as additional layer of defence for slann. Firelance gives additional CP and gives boost to Knights. Also gives more chances for choosing who goes first. I think, it's worth its points. I cannot have both Balewind and Cogs, so I chose the second for additional protection. Generaly it g ives more benefits to caster. I already have bonuses for run and charge so Cogs won't give as much as Balewind. My biggest concern is that VZoD will reach slann. He'll get countercharge and get destoyed, of course, but it way be too late. I want to keep VZoD\mortarch\morgasts busy with Firelance, while summoning enough skinks to bubblewrap Slann. I also hope that realm we'll play in will contain some anti-horde spells since I have no reliable way to deal with them otherwise. Let's see how it works.
