Loads of frustrating fun.
I managed first blood! But got bogged down by Unkillable Thunder Wolves, Looking back I made one or two mistakes and need to remember to go with my gut instincts. His rune priest was a huge factor during the game he kept casting enfeeble on my Tide and Endurance on his TWC. I never gained the traction I needed to win that combat and it really stung!
Over all he played his army very well and threw caution aside, deciding to get stuck in. The Gork and Morkanouts were a huge matter of concern for him, in the end he destroyed them both turning them to huge fiery explosions ! After loosing the morka naut the Gorkanaut turn round to face down a squad of blood claws. which had exited their flying transport the turn before trying to grab an objective. The Gorkanaut had two choices. Deal with the squad or the transport. He chose the Squad, which would later prove to be his unmaking. Had he swatted the transport. things would have been different enough and may have saved the game. Lesson learned.
Throughout the game his rune priest persisted buffing his TWC and "Hexing" my tide. I was so focused on how I was being hurt that I didn't see that his buffs were helping him way too much and really holding me back.Another lesson learned. Also if you can sqat the caster. do it! If you can make combat with a Gorkanaut ..Also do it! AV 13 and 12 in close combat would have been a huge boon during the game. It would have massively turned the tide of battle and save countless green skins. I am seeing that it is better to take the beating and press on. if we're not moving we're loosing.
Over all a blast and a good showing for the boys. I'll post some pictures soon!
Thanks for reading!!!
