So I went to a local torney this weekend and stumbled across some Circle players. All they could talk about was how stupid good the Gallowes Groves are. They could barley keep from dancing of joy when they talked about how it would impact the game. And as trollplayer I can barley keep from weaping when i think about them, as we are the faction that will be hurt the most by this due to loosing tough.
They have so many uses that it is mindboggeling. Stop tough, snacking, transfers, healing. Channeling all those juicy Orboros spells and clog up chargelanes also springs to mind. There are probably even more things that they can do.
What can we do to counter this? Are there some good ideas out there that you can share with us, pleas post them here!
I for one can think of two units who makes it easier, and its the Kreilstone with elder and its Scattergunners. These two help against the stealth the Gallows will have when in concealment (and they will pretty much have it either from terrarin or from clouds layed out by druids). Kreilstone takes stealth away to let others chop them down and Scattergunners won't suffer for their low RAT when its autohit exept from snake eyes. And they can target their own to hit the trees.
But these two units aint much to hang in the christmastree. But I can't seem to figure out anything else that we have that is good against them.
