The Toad Hall League started on Thursday, a 15 round SR2012 league, which should be good fun :)
We got the lists today, and while my list is no suprise, being a slight change to the previous list I had played, there are a lot of decent lists out there which will require some difficult games to beat. Especially considering the amount of new and crazy rules in SR2012 will be hard to get my mind around.
To recap, my list was:
Wraith Witch Deneghra
Blackbanes Ghost Raiders
The Withershadow Combine
Bane Lord Tartarus
Machine Wraith (x3)
Which I thought had the best parts of my test list, and added some even more powerful abilities. The old list was T4 of course, so I lose the benefit of 2" deployment and 2 SPD on the wraiths, which were not very useful - compared to the benefit of a free upkeep, upkeep hate, puppet master and dark shroud - only having to sacrifice the second pistol wraith and swap out Bane Knights (who did not work well in the previous lists, being non-stealth and corporeal.)
The draw has come up, and funnily enough I have Emma's Circle as my first opponent. Im confident that Ill win the game, since I know Emma's playstyle inside out. Her army will be:
Baldur the Stonecleaver
Druids of Orboros and Overseer
I have played this army a few times before, so I have a good idea of how it works.
My basic plan will of course, be: Prey on Baldur, use Nightmare to sneak up and hopefully take out Baldur in case I am losing the scenario. Avoid Woldwardens, and use Arc-Nodes to take out the Druids and hopefully ill be able to slow down the Woldwardens enough that I can take the win by scenario.
Ill go further in detail in another post, which will also have my second opponents list!
Another Death Guard Rhino - Finished 2nd of these this morning. Quite useful for running small squads equipped with Blight Launchers up the board quickly
