Peter: Seraphon continue their dominant form in another event. This time though we see the inclusion of Saurus Knights, with a movement of 8″ and being able to re-roll charges these boys are great at getting up the table quickly, claiming objectives and getting in your opponents face. The Celestite Spear means they’ll be damage 2 on the turn they charged at 4+/3+ and two attacks each.

TOTAL POINTS: 1950/2000

Peter: Dragon Ogors, lots of Dragon Ogors, 34 tonne precise! With three Shaggoths on the table they can do a fair bit of healing in the event of a tie in the priory roll. In the case of a tie Colin will get to roll a dice for each unit on the field, on a 4+ that unit heals D3 wounds (he can do this three times for each unit!)

This armies quick as well! With a move of 8″ across the board. The inclusion of the Horn of Power also means that any Dragon Ogors within 18″ can run AND charge. Along with that Sundering Blades can give a unit of Dragon Ogors an extra pip of rend on their weapons.

Allies: 0 / 400

Drops: 11

Peter: Like Colin’s list, Rov’s also includes a number of Dragon Ogors and a Shaggoth to go with them. But alongside this Rov’s chosen to include some Ungors (mainly as screen and chaff I imagine), a fair amount of Tzaangors and two Cockatrice. The Cockatrice are great value at only 95 Points each, being able to cause D6 mortal wounds on a 4+ in combat and have a total of ten other attacks as wel if it manages to get a charge in. However, they will die to a stuff breeze.

Tzaangor Enlightened on Discs are a particular pain for an unwary opponent who can get caught out by their 16″ movement and the ability to re-roll hits and wounds if an enemy within 3″ has already attacked in the combat phase. I imagine that the Tzaangors on foot Will pin units in place. The opponent seeing 20 of them will likely focus their attacks (because why wouldn’t you when this unit can kick out up to 60 4+/4+ attacks) on these allowing the Tzaangors in Discs to buff their attacks and do a shed load of damage.

Peter: 4 wins and a loss for a Hedonites list couldn’t be ignored really. Ok their wins are against some mid tier armies but for an army that has been ignored by GW for some time this is a fantastic result. The new updates will give them some love and it will be interesting to see where they place going forwards.

Blissbarb archers and seekers are great when you look at their ability to run and shoot in a turn. This pops their threat range all the way up to 30″ for Archers and 38″ for the Seekers!
