I'm having real troubles dealing with Warjacks, especially Khador ones. I know this has always been something of an issue for this faction, but MKI infantrymachine ensured that it was never too big an issue. I've always thought that the reason why the Circle has been a strong Hordes faction at the Gencon tournies was its ability to deal with infantry spam and ensure win by scenario (hello, Krueger and Baldur), but now we are seeing a proliferation of Jacks. Where a Primal'd Warpwolf would suffice to deal with the low number of heavies fielded against us, we are instead seeing 3 or more on the table at a time. I think we need some punch to compensate.
Our 'heavy hitting' infantry options (Ravagers and Gatormen) are quite clearly tooled up to take out living models, as are the Bloodweavers. Though the Ravagers and Gatormen can perform reasonably well against Jacks they are definitely lacking something to give them an edge. The Bloodweavers don't stand a chance. The Nyss Hunters are again OK-ish, but their low P+S isn't gonna do much more than tickle a Khador heavy, even with Weapon Master. I have not yet tried the Wolves of Orboros but I can see that they aren't going to be setting the world alight.
For the record I am currently using Krueger, but would like to playtest all of the Locks at some point.
I have got to thinking that maybe if PP does not want to give us brute strength, maybe they should provide other anti-jack options. What if Krueger and Druids had lightning options which caused Disruption for example? e.g. as much as I love Electro-Leap, I can already hose infantry. If Lightning Tendrils granted Reach and Disruption then I would be a happier bunny!
Anyone else feel like this?
