Recently I bought the Khador portion of the 2 player battle box. I think I even posted on this forum about it.
Anyhow we decided to up to 25pt and just play that. And so we did.
I'm sure you probably know how that went already Looking at what the Covenant does, I was hastily searching the forums thinking surely the suggested starting list for Khador wouldnt be such that the natural additions for each army to make 25 would see one of them with a feat (and spells) which are most likely going to fizzle. Alas it was true. I waited, but Covenant upkept the stationary denial every turn until I tried in vain to at least catch something with my feat. When I did have some space for Sorscha to attempt an assassination run, I was just caught within the edge of spell denial so my hopes for some movement shenanigans with Sorcha were dashed.
Anyhow I managed to still do a bunch of damage to Kreoss thanks to the Destroyer lobbing some ranged shots. One had a direct hit, and good boosted damage roll but was unable to secure another direct hit.
Now I am sure the Battlebox must be a decent start to build on if one were fighting another faction. However with the above in mind, it would seem that the expectation is for me to start replacing models rather than adding models if I am to face Menoth again. But I do not wish to spend lots so ideally I'm looking to run the list I have now but with a different caster and be competitive in games against an army built from the Menoth half of the Battlebox.
I have some ideas for a change of caster, but wondering what people might recomment and why.
