Write My Tournament Army – Part 6

I’ve asked you all to get involved with the writing of my tournament army for the Age of the Dark Gods tournament, run by Savage Hammer Gaming. Each week selecting a different unit for the army.

Last week you decided that our next unit to be included in the army was a second Swampcalla Shaman. You also decided that the first should have the spell Nasty Hex.

You couldn’t decide between an additional leader or Other/Artillery, so this week I’ve lumped them all into one larger vote for you. As well as that we have another spell vote for the second shaman and a vote for who should have an artefact.

Here’s the list so far:

Allegiance: Kruleboyz
Subfaction: Big Yellers
Mortal Realm: Ghur
Grand Strategy:

Snatchaboss on Sludgeraker Beast (315)
– Command Trait: Supa Sneaky
Swampcalla Shaman and Pot-Grot (105)
Spell: Nasty Hex
Swampcalla Shaman and Pot-grot (105)

9 x Man-skewer Boltboyz (360)
  – Reinforced: Twice
9 x Man-skewer Boltboyz (360)
  – Reinforced: Twice
10 x Gutrippaz (180)
Wicked Stikkaz

10 x Hobgrot Slittaz (80)

Total: 1,505 / 2000
Reinforced Units: 4 / 4
Allies: 0 / 400
Wounds: 92
Drops: 7

Shaman Spell

There are a number of options here all with their own benefits.

Da Black Pit

Thanks to Wahapedia

Not bad for large groups of models with good save characteristics, such as a unit of 5+ stormcast etc. Not much good for enemy Monsters, Leaders or units with saves of 5+ or better.

Choking Mist

A good one for the Kruleboyz, as you can pick a spot 5.5″ behind a unit you’re about to charge and force them to reduce the number of attacks against you.

Sneaky Miasma

Not bad for moving our Sludgeraker up to the enemy quicker, or any other monster that may be selected before the series ends. Essentially gives them a free move.

Nasty Hex

Not bad, especially for units like Nagagh.

Spell Vote

Additional Leader/Artillery or Other Unit

Rather than go the pros and cons of all the units again I’ve just listed them all on the vote below. I think we’ve all seen the pros and cons enough now!

Next Week’s Unit

As the points will be below 400 after this week’s vote, next week I will just include units that we are able to afford.
