Mulling on Mohsar: 5

I've received my models, and tonight will feature just a single proxy model (Megalith). The Bloodtrackers will take a break while I try running beast heavy, but the Wolves of Orboros will stay to swell the ranks for the time being.
Mohsar the Desertwalker
- Gorax
- Megalith
- Warpwolf Stalker
- Warpwolf Stalker
Shifting Stones
- Stone keeper
Swamp Gobber Bellows Crew (Leader and 1 Grunt)
Wolves of Orboros (Leader and 9 Grunts)
- Wolf of Orboros Officer & Standard
Blackclad Wayfarer
Blackclad Wayfarer
Gallows Grove
Gallows Grove
Professor Victor Pendrake
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.

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.

  1. Consider taking a Pureblood if you're worried about high DEF. I love the Pureblood because he's a great utility heavy, rocking a POW 14 magical 10" spray as well as allowing other warpwolves to warp Ghostly. With Mohsar you can potentially activate him first, throw up some pillars, and then the Stalker can advance, attack something, then sprint back behind the pillars. Also the Pureblood's animus can help deal with high DEF models by allowing you to grant Blessed. Sure, he might not hit as hard as a Stalker, but he can grant a lot of other great benefits and is a fantastic toolbox - especially if you want to go beast-heavy.
