It's tiny at just below thirty models but still larger than a lot of Circle armies out there. I'm unsure about Pendrake, but I find myself unable to respond to the high defense Circle/Legion heavies without Primal, and Beast Lore on the WoO will sort them out (hitting defense 18 on average dice). Beast Lore can be applied to a lot of different models when I really need that boost, from the Stone Keeper to the Blackclad, or even Mohsar himself if he can't spare the Focus to boost that Curse of Shadows.Mohsar the Desertwalker- Gorax- Megalith- Warpwolf Stalker- Warpwolf StalkerShifting Stones- Stone keeperSwamp Gobber Bellows Crew (Leader and 1 Grunt)Wolves of Orboros (Leader and 9 Grunts)- Wolf of Orboros Officer & StandardBlackclad WayfarerBlackclad WayfarerGallows GroveGallows GroveProfessor Victor Pendrake
Finally Pendrake brings a possible knockdown to the table, which can be a game winner. If there's a defense thirteen Warjack I'll have to use Primal to guarantee a kill, but with one 7+ roll he'll be flat on his behind and I can kill it with a Stalker and sprint away.
