Re: OHS Season 39 - Snowed In - Round 4 Until 2/14

@scaperdude beat me with my own PKs. I'd picked his Mezzodemon army, figuring he would likely counter with his own large elementals army. But he made the superior choice, I think, taking my PKs x5 plus Crixus.

My plan, at setup, was to seize Valda to get increased mobility against the speedy flying knights. So I placed OM1 on Marcu, counting on grabbing the glyph and going on with the game.

Unfortunately, the little bastard stabbed me in the back immediately. He flew over and put 3 (!!!!) wounds on Krug, and - more importantly - my plan for Valda was already circling the drain. So I devoted far too many resources, over the next few rounds, trying to claim that glyph, and gave up too many exoskeleton markers in disadvantageous positions trying to keep it. Eventually my markers were gone, and we were in the endgame.

I managed to get Krug over to Wannok, taking some wounds and smashing some PKs along the way. The ogre reached maximum attack power, and the game came down to a 1-life Krug + Wannok, against a 3-life Crixus (he'd been the Wannok-soak) + 1 PK. I did my best to keep the PK from being able to get the drop on me, but with its superior maneuverability, eventually it did get first strike, as I tried to hold the glyph. Its 2 skulls beat my 1 shield, and the game was over.

Good game, Scaperdude!

Re: OHS Season 39 - Snowed In - Round 4 Until 2/14

Finished up this morning against @Tiamat , who was a pleasure to play with and chat with after the game!

The matchup was
tiamat: Kuthnak, Marcu Esenwein, Nerak the Glacian Swog Rider, Death Chasers of Theskx4, Ogre Pulverizer
vs
s1r: Isamu, Krav Maga Agents, Moltenclaw, Greenscale Warriorsx3

tiamat chose his DC build first, and I followed with the GSWs/MC. I think the DC build is pretty powerful (especially with boiling blood giving AOE!), but the DC's have low defense that I thought would be a perfect target for MC's special since it can reach out 4 spaces from the target just like Nerak's aura and Kuthnak's activation range. Plus I thought having the KMA in the endgame would be helpful with the rivers, frequent height change at the map edges, and sniping spots by the SZ.

Short story is Moltenclaw rushing near the Valda glyph across from tiamat's start zone challenged tiamat's DC/Nerak development. Some solid rolls for his special and the initiative switch (that never went back) helped MC take out Nerak and 8 of the 12 DCs by the end of RD2, OM1 while losing just one GSW. That left me in position to hold height with Greenscales screening at the base above the river and giving MC room to operate and cleanup with both melee and his special.

Long story in the spoiler.

Spoiler Alert!

Congrats to another "rookie" 4-0 player, @S1R_ART0R1US ! Although I use rookie loosely here, as you've actually been on Heroscapers longer than I have.

@kevindola Yeah, after Marcu the rest of that army is just filler.

I'll be running my Brute Gruts build.

Brief Aside

Hey everybody,

The organizers were curious how people felt about being able to overlap figures in your armies. Please vote (and/or comment) how you felt about this. Thanks.

Re: overlapping figures

I didn't mind it, but I also didn't love it.

I think I would have liked it more if Raelin didn't fit so well in the overlap, but even at lower point totals it probably allows something strong like MWs to easily fit in both builds.

I guess the thing about it that I don't like is allowing any strong figure to be in both builds brings up the overall meta in strength a bit, which makes bringing weaker armies with less used figures less meaningful since you're more likely to play one of your opponent's armies (since the 'average' army can be stronger & can't be weaker -> on average it's stronger than it is without any overlap). This seems a bit counter to some of the goals of bring-2.

It's not a massive shift in the meta strength, but it's some shift and I'm not convinced that any shift towards stronger armies is better.

For reference, I voted for 'I liked it as a change up, but not every time'. Just wanted to expand on that a bit.

Re: OHS Season 39 - Snowed In - Play In Games Until 2/21

I would prefer not to see an overlap. I saw several double raelin builds. As I have often expressed, I know she is part of the game, it is just a part I do not like. I also like unique builds in general.

What GenCon taught me was to assume only one skull on three dice!
