Today it was the first time i took the horror to a tourney (28 men, vienna). I went 8th casue CP counted more than SoS, otherwise i would have been 5th or 6th or something.. (3-1 in total, whatever).
The thing is: Swamp Horror loves to hug things which want to run past him. Game 1: devastator runs around bumping things aside...but its nearly impossible for him to get away from the hugger - cause of pull. Basically it went: run-freestrike/pullback...run-freestrike/pullback. The devastator just had to run 1/4 inch outside of my melee so i decided to let him go instead of rolling x times dice -13. (and we were not sure if this is possible)
THIS IS GREAT. It can shut down charges and so on. Basically no low def thing in melee with the horror can leave without parry or place shenanigans.
The last game against khador the Horror sat between Scrapjack, Spriggan and a Behemoth, just for the fun of pinning em out of the scenario. He eventually died way to late, due to horrible rolls on the opposite side, 2 less focus and Spinygrowth.
Never forget that the Horror basically pins Heavies to him, MAT 8 freestrikes hit most of the time. Just wanted to share my joy with you. Ah, and Spiny growth on him helps. A lot. I tried the conversion posted on this forum, but it is not finished yet. Maybe ill make him even bigger now ;-).
