So what's a guy to do ? fight fire with fire ? that would not really be my thing tbh as I want death & destruction on a grand scale in my wargames, so instead of fighting fire with fire I intend to fight with water & my savour is the 2sd ed Vrak's book.
You see in it is a detachment that uses the master of the horde rule but in stead of infantry squads of 15+ models coming back on a 5+ with lets them come back on a 2+ with the out flank rule as well, now this might seem very bent & in away it is but as these units are basic crap troops & you have to invest a lot of points in them I don't see it as the type of thing top tournament armies will lose to, but what it might be is a spoiler as it would be hard to table & I think (don't know) to get a 20-0 win over.
My days for having any interest in winning tournament are well in the past but I've no wish to be getting tabled in 2 or 3 turns either, a mate of mine (Doc) told me I was still building armies like it was 5th ed & that I need to move with the times, this is my way of doing so.
I had my first game with a list from the Vrak's book last night & found it to be good fun & we got in 5 turns in under 2.5 hours which was good as it was one of the things that I worried about using is army, close on 250 models that's a bit of managing that's why I've no pictures for you.
In the game last night I got I think 5 units back while losing 2, well if it wasn't for one's lol, there's a certain freedom for me been able to throw my army at some one else's with wild abandonment & for me this army seems to be ticking the right boxs, you don't want you army to die ? fine lets have fun killing mine, I think the Blood God would approve.
Before I go a good mate of mine as done a post on his thought of going from WHFB over to KoW, don't worry it is not a rant just his honest feelings & thoughts, here's a link.
Well if you come back my thanks as always for dropping in & even if you didn't come back my thanks anyway & if you like to leave a comment it would be welcome.
