Training with Trolls – Horgle2

So we decided to re wrack and start again. Amon list changed sightly, second devout dropped for a second dervish and max choir. Game was a disaster, start to finish. We played Extraction. Once again I got the MK killed, left him out of the KS aura. Amon played more aggressively, moved forward onto a hill and had a camp of 1 within range of both the bomber and MK. I took the bait, used the bomber to kill a dervish and the MK assaulted Amon and hit him with the spray, cranked the damage roll and resulted in...

Training with Trolls 3 – Horgle2 vs Amon

Once again I put Horgle2 on the table. Still not happy with his list, I attempted to Power of Dhulia Theme force. This changed the list to: Horgle2 Runebearer Mountainking Axer Bomber Bouncer Pyre Janissa Northkin Shaman Krielstone Runeshapers Dhunian Knot I played into Menoth and didn’t know what I was going to face but wanted to get Horgle on the table 10 times before switching locks. Lost the roll and went second. Which I didn’t mind as I have never gone second with this list. The Menoth force advanced forward, I had Firestarter on the bomber, IR on the MK...

Training with Trolls – Actual Game.

Game was a mess – We both made some awful mistakes. Bradigus vs Horgle. I didn’t factor in his feat top of 2 and didn’t transfer IR to MK. He feated and got 3 heavies in with synergy up. Left the King on 11 health. I then forgot I had rage and feated and king only killed a guardian, and left a warden on 2 health but healed 9 health back with stone keeper repairs. Martin went for an ill advised assassination and it tanked out, giving me a 35 min lead on clock. I then played stupidly slowly...

Training with Trolls – The Battle plan.

Battle plan: Start with Runebearer and use Harmonious Exaltation,  Jannisa pops out a hill , Horgle Casts IR on Kriel Warriors, Fire starter on Bomber and drop 3 into the stone, walks onto hill. Rile and run all 3 beasts. Warders run and stay B2B with each other and try and maximise Shield Guard ranges. Kriel Warriors run to take up board space. Stone runs to maximise armour bubble turn 2. Turn 2: Upkeep F/S, swap IR &  Get solid ground out after Harmonious Exaltation, drop 1/2 (Depending on ranged threat) into stone. Position behind MK. Position models to...

Training with Trolls. Horgle2

So I was one of the lucky ones to get a Horgle2 Model from the online store (Thanks Ciaran). Having been a long time collector and not actually gotten much tabletop time with the Kriel, it was about time that is addressed. This blog is going to plan and hopefully a slight improvement over time as I find the Trollblood strengths and weakness first hand and hopefully avoid some of the pit falls. So I am playing against Circle on Tuesday (2 days time) and wanted to get a list I wanted to try out which was not tailored against...
