This week saw the first match up between my Menoth and Aaron’s Khador.
Before you get too excited, I have to admit that I was proxying my warcaster for this game… although it may LOOK like eFeora, I was actually playing her prime counterpart. The reason for the substitution is simple: I own pFeora, but she as of yet unassembled and unpainted. So I figured that this would be an acceptable compromise (although it DID get me in trouble at one point during the game… we’ll get to that!). Aaron, for his part, was fielding Vlad2 because of list-chicken… he had a Strakhov list, packed full of fire-immunity, but he was worried about how it would perform against my less-fire-dependent Reznik list. More accurately, he put it together to psyche me out of using fire-weapons because he wasn’t really sure at all that it would *work* as a list, and therefore he could bring his more flammable Vlad2 list free of fear!
Let’s find out how that worked out for him, shall we?

I also had just happened to finish my epic My Little Pony Destors conversion so they were definitely going to be in my list the rest I still had to figure out. I went with: Continue reading →
Our second battle report podcast is now recorded and live! It’s an epic, 6 turn clash where Aaron brought his Imperialist Khador, led by the original incarnation of Vlad, against my glorious Cygnar with Kraye at the helm. This was a 35 point game, and by the end of it over 50 models had been taken off the table as casualties…

This week’s Tactical Question:
How do you get the best mileage out of Khador’s Doom Reavers? They’re a powerful melee unit, but at the same time they don’t have the stats (or the ability to be buffed) to get into melee easily. Suggestions, advice, or counter-advice is all appreciated!
