Woehammer International TTS Tournament – Round 1

The first round has been drawn. Unfortunately there have been two drop outs since the draw, no matter! It leaves an opportunity for an exhibition match!

Alice Lirette v Kieron Bailey

For those who aren’t aware, Alice is a writer for Goonhammer. Alice went to the BWG: Summer Slaughter and claimed two wins and three losses, but that was with Ossiarch Bonereapers – a faction in desperate need of an update.

This time around Alice is playing as Daughters of Khaine with Morathi and a Krondspine forming the backbone of her list.

Kieron joined Woehammer last month and is in competition with Mike Chadderton (also of Goonhammer fame) to see who can get to 5-0 with Kruleboyz first.

Peter: A one drop list will mean that Alice will be choosing who goes first in the first battle round, my guess being that she would allow Kieron to take the first and hope to have the double going into turn 2.

You may write-off the Kruleboyz at first glance, but they have a lot of screening that can be use to block the Krondspine and Morathi. Meanwhile the Man-skewers can pick wounds off at range.

Danny: I would say Alice has two options depending on how Kieron deploys – Morathi/s + Krondspine can potentially make a T1 charge, no shooting needed if Kboyz deploy and screen well, it would make sense to let them go first as moving will reduce the Boltboyz range and make her charges easier.

For Kieron it will be absolutely key to deploy in such a wayas to either bait the T1 charge and start doing those wounds to Morathi from chip damage/UH, because Kboyz can melt fast to her if he doesn’t keep her tied up with stuff. If Kieron gets given first first he will want to keep turtled up, do what he can to get on objectives and force Alice to split up to start scoring – getting those 3 wounds on Morathi every damn turn either way will be crucial.
