So, at DieCon this past weekend, my good buddy Matt (Gearloop) and I decided to switch armies to have a ton of fun in the Hardcore tournament.
I gave him my EHexeris list and he gave me his Harbinger list. I had a blast! Playing Menoth reminded me so much of why I loved Skorne in MK1. There was so much control over the board and I was able to dictate the flow of battle, frustrate my opponents and really make them think.
I had never played Menoth before and ended up going 5-1, only losing my first game to another good opponent. I had really hoped for lucky draw in round one to get a warm up game in.
The funny thing was, in round 4, Matt and I got paired up against each other. We had a lot of fun and the game was real close until the Avatar rolled a 4 on his focus and my dice became blessed by the Creator himself and the Avatar killed a fully healthy Bronzeback and nearly killed a fully healthy Gladiator in the same turn, only to have a Reckoner finish it off in a single swing.
So, with that said, thank you Matt for my gateway tourney to lead me into the arms of the Creator.
Finally, you guys will probably see "High Executioner Watt" on the scene real soon.
