pKrueger: Not getting hit.

The big problem with my first list, besides being mostly units without UA, minimum units, or silly choices was that nothing could avoid being hit. The second problem was Upkeep Removal, and I don't care how many times people say they can play around it: make room for upkeep removal!

Krueger the Stormwrath (Skyborne)
- Gorax
- Gnarlhorn Satyr
- Warpwolf Stalker (Prowl)
- Warpwolf Stalker (Prowl)
Druids of Orboros (Leader and 5 Grunts) (Camouflage)
- Druid of Orboros Overseer (Camouflage)
Shifting Stones (Stealth)
- Stone keeper (Stealth)
Tharn Bloodweavers (Leader and 5 Grunts) (Stealth)
Blackclad Wayfarer
Gallows Grove (Prowl)
Gallows Grove (Prowl)
Lanyssa Ryssyll (Prowl)

I'm debating the Gnarlhorn, since it has no defense, and I would like the ability to create terrain features to activate prowl since clouds won't do it (it seems they do, win for me). This list also allows me to cast Deflection without feeling like a complete retard, since it only benefits faction warrior models. Some of the models haven't arrived yet, but I'm hoping I can borrow some for the tournament. I've also been debating including the much maligned Sentry Stone in order to create those woods I need to prowl.



  1. Often survivability can depend heavily on placement if you're lacking abilities. I find that the Gnarlhorn is a highly effective 2nd-line warbeast since you'll ideally want him in a position to counter-slam anyway. I'd consider giving him another chance, as he's always one of my favorite warbeasts - especially since the Blackclad, Bounding, and Lightning Tendrils can give him a threat range of 15". You can use that to your advantage while keeping him back from getting charged himself.

    It might be worth considering dropping Lanyssa (she's great and all, but redundant with the Blackclad) for a Wilder. The Wilder can extend your threat ranges while keeping Krueger further back, can throw out a free Primal or Bounding, and can even make you a little more fury efficient.

  2. Since I've had exactly one game with Circle, it'll be his first chance, but I see his worth (that's why I bought him) ;)

    Lanyssa caught a drifting AoE in my first game, and backup Hunter's seems prudent, but throwing in the Gnarlhorn instead of a Stalker would also leave points for the Wilder... considering it.
