The big changes are here, and I couldn’t be happier: one of my favorite things about this game is creativity. Create some jank, test it and improve it.

Playing three factions, I was more or less sure to find my happiness (boros, blight and minions). Turns out, the changes to Circle are amazing ! Let’s see what lists I will play in the coming weeks ☺️

Playing “hit and run” with Kaya and Laris

I’m not the only one who noticed it: Kaya 2 and the living beasts are back.

These are two of the things that attracted me to this game, and I plan to enjoy the come back ! And besides, Loki looks ok to play right now. Here’s my first iteration of the list:

Here’s my first iteration of the list:

Circle
[Theme] The Wild Hunt

[Kaya 2] Kaya the Moonhunter [+24]
– Feral Warpwolf [14]
– Ghetorix [17]
– Loki [15]
– Rip Horn Satyr [11]
– Druid Wilder [3]
Blackclad Wayfarer [3]
Death Archon [9]
Gallows Grove [2]
Krueger the Stormseer [0(5)]
– Woldwyrd [8]
Lord of the Feast [0(5)]
War Wolf [0(2)]
War Wolf [0(2)]
War Wolf [0(2)]
Boil Master & Spirit Cauldron [5]
Death Wolves [9]
Shifting Stones [3]

The point of the list is to maximize Kaya’s feat by sending Getho, Loki, and the Feral, with as much buff as possible, before bringing them back to their mistress. The rip horn can go up to ridiculous armor values ​​for a 11pts beast, while the change to death wolves (starting with 1 corpse) finally makes them useful in wild hunt. One of the questionable choices seems to me to be death archon. A Dhunian would also be relevant to help Krueger 0 or the death wolves (+ a set of stone). These items will need to be tested, but the list looks super fun!

The GOAT list

A few years ago, i had the idea to make a « goat » list: two units of mist riders, the four warbeast goats and the caster on a goat: Morvannah2. It turned out to be really bad. This update could be a chance to play these models.

That’s what happens:

[Morvahna 2] Morvahna the Dawnshadow [+27]
– Brennos the Elderhorn [14]-
-Gnarlhorn Satyr [10]
– Rip Horn Satyr [11]
– Shadowhorn Satyr [10]
– Druid Wilder [3]
Dhunian Archon [6]
Dhunian Archon [6]
Hermit of Henge Hold [0(5)]
Hutchuk, Ogrun Bounty Hunter [0(5)]
Krueger the Stormseer [0(5)]
– Gorax Rager [6]
Swamp Gobber River Raider [1]
Swamp Gobber River Raider [1]
Swamp Gobber River Raider [1]
Swamp Gobber River Raider [1]
Druid Mist Riders (max) [16]
Druid Mist Riders (max) [16]

3 river riders could be replaced by a Blackclad wayfarer.

This is a list based on recursion and pieces that can counter punch pretty hard for their price. Note that Morvannah could be played as an offensive piece giving that between the animus of the gnarlhorn and the hermit for sac pawn, she’s not easy to kill (if Dhunian can heal her consistently after feat).

Btw, this is not an army that I would take in tournaments. A more reasonable version would be to replace the goats with a Storm raptor, which would leave points for entering another unit, like the slaughterhouser for example.

The tree and the minions

How long have the Orboros players been waiting for this? Wurmwood is finally available as a Secret Master. And it doesn’t matter if the tree has had a nerf along the way: we will enjoy it.

If the Kaya list was rather predictable, the Wurmood lists in secret master are plethoria, as the possibilities are numerous. Here is a list with many models that I like to play.

[Theme] Secret Masters

[Wurmwood 1] Wurmwood, Tree of Fate [+27]
– Woldwarden [13]
– Woldwarden [13]
– Woldwyrd [8]
Barnabas the Conqueror [5]
– Blackhide Wrastler [14]
Chuck Dogwood [4]
Marvin, revenge artist [0(5)]
Dhunian Archon [6]
Dhunian Archon [6]
Hermit of Henge Hold [0(5)]
Krueger the Stormseer [0(5)]
– Feral Warpwolf [14]
Lanyssa Ryssyl, Nyss Sorceress [3]
Swamp Gobber River Raider [1]
Farrow Bone Grinders (min) [5]
Farrow Slaughterhousers [7]
Shifting Stones [3]

Full of shenanigans, control elements and traps for the opponent. The Barni0 and 2x Dhunian package could be replace by 2x death archon, a croc pot, Kogan and two others Swamp gobber. Can’t wait to try this on a table 🙂

 

And you, which list do you plan to play?
