I know that 98% of Skorne players are unhappy about our BE rules (myself included).
And I know that the model isn't out and that most people haven't given him a try, but I'm convinced that we're missing something.
So this thread is for those of you who have played several games with him and found some cool combo's and strategies.
Let's figure this guy out.
Here's what I've tried:
With pMakeda, putting savagery on it on the first turn allows him to advance a full 10" and be in position for the rest of the game to shoot whatever is within 10".
Defender's ward puts his armor up to 21 which is respectful.
And carnage makes it very easy for him to hit the enemy in melee.
I've also tried him with Mordikaar for the express purpose of using it to essence blast the enemy caster.
Pow 18 (I think) + boost = pain on any caster.
Yeah, yeah, it's an expensive EB, but hey, I view everything in my army as expendable if it helps me achieve my goals.
Sadly my game went horribly bad for me from the get go and I never got the opportunity to EB the enemy.
Other things to consider:
Extoller to give it magic shooting - great for getting rid of those pesky incorporeal solo's.
Raider for extra range.
If you've tried the Animatrix, please share your (positive) experiences with us so that we can create a tactica for it.
