Beasts of Chaos- Something Beasty This Way Comes



April 20th, 2019
About Centigors
Played them once. I wish I had a herd of twenty. First off, they are Brayherd and gain the benefits there-of. If you do the analysis, they have the cost of two Gors. They have two wounds and the same save, so they have the same survivability. However, they have slightly better damage output and a white hot blur Move of 14". And can run and charge. So much better in almost every way than a regular unit of Gors. I would definitely take them over Gors every time point per point.

Got myself a present: five heroes for my Beastmen from Mierce Miniatures.  This will bring me up to three Beastlords and three Bray Shamans.  More than plenty.  I can rotate them into my squads as champions to make it all look so good.

I had to use a lot of proxies.  I need to add a whole bunch of models if I'm going to use this Warscroll.  There are only two that are suitable for a Brayherd-based army, and this one requires a lot of bodies, notably three units of Gors, which can really run up the bill.  The only thing I can think of is to run min units of ten each (80 points).

We played the mission "shifting objectives" and only made it to the bottom of the second turn with score of 9-5.  With so many bodies on the table, I showed up, made a ton of great charges (only two failures out of ten rolls) but ran out of steam by the time I got the Skaven down to five models on the board (three Stormfiends, Thanquol, and a Verminlord).








I think the key to winning with this army is to play aggressively and get so many bodies on the board.  Here, those Primal Call points are the key to getting that extra beast meat on the board.  It takes at least three points to summon anything at all, and at one point a turn, you're only going to get five a game, not much but enough for a unit of Gors to show up and swarm an objective late game.  However, if you station a Bray Shaman next to your herdstone and whack a unit for D3 mortal wounds (and +D3 Primal Call points) before it charges off, and then again the shaman can do it to himself the following turn, netting you a total of six Primal Call points (on average) and that means a unit of ten Bestigors can pop up in ambush at the end of the second turn's movement phase.  Let me tell you, that unit can turn the tide at a critical moment.


Seventh Game, Seventh Loss (March 31, 2019)
Update: this game actually turned into a tie, and with better play I could have turned it into a win by a narrow margin.
