So i regularly play against a Khorne player and have sometimes struggled to put together killer combos as good as his triple priest nonsense! This time I hoped things would be different, taking the Legion of Night allegiance and running the following;
5 Blood nights
We were playing that funky scenario where I was trapped in the middle between two ambushing forces. I chose to ambush myself with the Archai and knights, leaving the mortarchs, gheist and battleline in the middle. Gravesites were evenly spaced around the board.
Giving Khorne turn one was the right move. He pushed cautiously forward on the right flank, bringing half his force into range to my big boys. Manfred piled in and began to hack his way merrily through blood warriors. Arkhan stood back a little and brought his magic into play - lowering the morale of my oppos reavers ready for the advancing gheist. Essentially this flank was taken apart by these three units, with the skeletons looking on somewhat bemused by the action. Stealing the double turn was helpful. It allowed me to bring my remaining units on his back line behind the left flank. The ambusher had become the ambushed!
His mini brass stampede however had other ideas and decimated my Archai while his battle line dross fell in short order to the blood knights. It was a game of two flanks at this point, I had one to myself, she was contesting the other. The rest of the game saw the mortarchs race to the fray - killing everything in their path while the skeletons proved to be amazing speed bumps with combined with invocation and the grave sites.
It was a big win to the undead, and I cannot wait for game two!
