The Terminus Challenge: Rorsh & Brine

Inspired by the article I linked before Christmas, about the problems of running Warjacks against the increasing amount of beast heavy horde opponents, I thought of something this morning: Bacon. I wrote a spotlight about Rorsh & Brine a while back, but I've never considered including them in my Terminus list before.

The first two games proved that the dual Reaper setup wasn't as perfect as I had hoped. It
wasn't that it failed, but in hard match-ups against players with the skill and tools to take me on, I didn't have the available Focus I usually have, and running two Helljacks became a liability. Removing the Warwitch Siren and a Reaper allows me to include them, and I'm not sure it's such a bad idea.
Brine Vs. Reaper
They've got similar defensive capabilities, with Brine having just one defense and two boxes less than the Reaper. Brine has a lot more punch, a lot more threat range, and a lot more tricks up it's sleeve. The Reaper is more accurate, but without the Focus to use that potential it's worthless.
Rorsh Vs. Siren
Rorsh has a lot less utility, but a lot more punch. Instead of a single spray, he has dynomite and guns, or four attacks in melee. He also has Pigpen, which could theoretically prevent a charge from a non-pathfinder model here and there, and he performs the same function as my Siren does: launching a heavy.

I'm a bit worried about losing all the models I usually sacrifice to lock down models/units though, so there's more work to be done on the list. I could move some Machine Wraiths out, but I've been having so much fun (not to mention success) with them in the last two games that I'd really like to keep them.



  1. You know, that infantry machine article has no content when I try to load it on my iOS devices. Very annoying.

  2. It's because the article is a flash file. And iphones dont do flash. You'd think they'd drop the text of the article in there if flash was disabled.

  3. One would think they'd grow up and implement something so widely used.

  4. Too bad Adobe announced that they are canceling developmnt of Flash player for mobile devices and next Widnows OS for mobile devices won't support flash.
    Fuck you, Steve Jobs.

  5. Do we still get to blame him? :)

  6. He was in charge of Apple and they were the first to start crusade against Flash, so yeah.

  7. Point taken but it looks like flash may be on its way out anyways with html5 on the horizon. I have formally protested for a non flash version on museonminis so hopefully they'll throw us unfortunate iPhone users a bone.
