Last chance to try out ideas before lists are due to be submitted for Conquest and so I came up with a last minute change to add some chaff units.
· 2x boomer regs
· 2x beserker regs
· 1x shooter horde
· 2x hunter hordes
· 2x siege breaker hordes- 1 with healing brew
· 1x boomer sergeant- inspiring talisman
· 1x warlock
· 1x Nomogarok
I made a few changes from the last game. I decide that 4 characters was to many , that I lacked flexibility and could do with another regiment to get to 12 units on table if I could.
I spent last night rebasing my boomer horde as 2 regiments- the theory being that as I want to use them to screen my siege breaker and hunter hordes anyway there is more flexibility as regiments, sure they work out dearer pointwise but also give more unit strength and adds a chaff option and flexibility fr target selecetion.
Likewise I was going to take a warrior horde as my final choice but at the last minute swapped it out for 2x berserker brave regiments, again to act as chaff and flexibility. This meant downgrading the beserker bully/ sergeant as well- replacing it with a warlock.
A rejigging that gave me 12 units and a few chaff options.
Gordon played his Brocks of Doom list which he has locked in for Conquest.
- 2 regiments Ironclad both with throwing dogs,
- 1 troop of mastiffs,
- 2 troops of brock riders
- 2 regiments of brock riders 1 with brew strength, 1 with brew sharpness,
- 2 troop sharp shooters,
- 1 regiment of rangers,
- 1 berserker lord on a brock.
- 1 lord on a beast with blade of the beast slayer,
- 2 ASB 1 with heal 3, 1 with bane chant 2.
- 1 hero or lord on a brock.
I’d decided to ignore the objective in the woods on the right and aim to take the centre and left hand ones. This was mainly as i didn't think the hunters could cope with the 2 Ironclad regiments and brock lord.
