It looks like I'll be rocking minions for the majority of the 2012 tourney season so I've been thinking about what to bring I play mostly gators but have started looking into farrow as of late in the hopes of getting a more balanced pair of lists. What I've got so far:
My "main" list. I'm an attrition player at heart so Maelok really suits my playstyle and I've been doing pretty well with the guy. My biggest problem with this list is probably pretty much everything Protectorate (Harbinger especially), lots of high armor stuff in general (Saeryn, beast heavy Trollbloods), remove from play effects and everything that messes with my armor buffs. To even this out I went with Lord Carver for my other list:
Lord Carver (Thornfall Alliance)
I've never played this list so it's only theorymachine right now. I thought about doing his T4 first (3*War Hog, Rorsch&Brine, 2*min Brigands) but I think I like this list better. The AD on everything non-battle group is pretty sexy and I can spend the points from R&B on more infantry to protect my War Hogs. Gudrun is a little shaky in the list but I want to try him out and see how he performs. I did think about downgrading the Brigands to a minimum unit and switching Gudrun out for another unit of Slaughterhousers. The list is decently fast and can bog down the enemy with tough/Quagmire in scenario play, doesn't rely very much on upkeeps and packs a lot of punch to offset the weaknesses of the Maelok list.
