VS The Herd
Dan Dourney

We played a 1,250 point game, Scenario 1: On the Precipice

I decided to try a completely different army build to what I usually play, it was definitely different but I admit the dice were my friends as well.

Mhorgoth was definitely my star (as he should be!), First turn he wavered a Beast Pack with a Lightning Bolt, then over the course of the next two turns his Heal spell kept a Werewolf Regiment alive that was locked in combat with a Brutox (who finally was routed by a combined charge from the Werewolves and a Wraith troop). In the middle of the game he was able to Surge units into combat and at the end of the game he routed the Shaman with a Fireball.

The Barrow Wights were able to charge the flank of the Stampede in turn 2, routing it. This definitely was the biggest moment in the game, freeing up a few of my units while removing his biggest threat (in my opinion).

The Lycans and Guardian Brutes were able to rout my Werewolves and Wraiths. The Ghouls were routed by a Beastpack after two turns of them fighting each other...

The Results: Undead victory
The Herd: 690 Kill Points
Undead: 1250 Kill Points

The game was definitely a fun one and much closer than the Kill points show, only Mhorgoth and the Barrow Wights remained at the end of the game.

    Promising lycans there in the herd army. Been thinking of using those as werewolves but the scale has been hard to get a good grasp og.

  • ChopperHarris says:

    It’s an interesting undead list.
    Don’t know many players who would put Mhorgoth in a lower point game.

  • Marwin says:

    Not a bad report, but you can do better!

  • Darth Toiletroll says:

    Glad to hear you rate them

  • Battle Kiwi says:

    Great report! I’m really keen to try out the barrow wights as my heavy hitter. ..especially against those darn dwarves!

  • Bloodwild says:

    I really liked them, even with the big footprint size, it did help that my opponent forgot they had Fly so he thought his Stampede was safe from them and I ended up getting a flank charge which ended up Routing the Stampede. I’ve only been able to use them in the one game so far but I plan on using them again.

    I’ll let you know my thoughts after I get a few more games in with the Barrow Wights.

  • Darth Toiletroll says:

    How did you find the barrow wights? Fly is brilliant but with only move 7 and such a large footprint I can see it being difficult. still it gives them nimble for surges
