I played ironjawz 2k twice last night. First games if the new edition. Three places of power in lore of life.
My list was:
Gaunt summoner, familliars - Arcane sacrifice, wellspring of arcane might.
Gaunt summoner, disk.
Spell portal, pendulum, geminids.
The ironjawz played a wierdnob battalion. Took turn 1 got into arcane terrain cast foot of gork on a 13 with +3 cast,+18", and +2 damage. Killed all my heroes excluding the loc, 680 points with 1 spell turn 1 hero phase, dirty. We both agreed that crippled me and there wasn't much coming back from it and i conceded.
We reset table and played exactly the same way again. This time he only took the general gaunt summoner off on his first turn which left me with plenty to put a fight up!
This time top of turn 2 all that was left on the table was a fungoid grot shamen and all I had lost was part of the zaangors and my general.
Take away: zaangors are dirty. Turn 1 they charged and killed 3 gruntas and 10 ard boyz with shields, turn 2 they were charged by 2x10 brutes, less a 1-2 from each. Battle shocked one unit off the board and left the other unit 4 strong. 2 units in 2k?
Spell portal is amazing. Geminids put loads of work in, i think they're ace. Pendulum maybe swapped out?
