So tonight I had a candle fight dinner with Andrej aka Pancake aka Woo. Yeah, now you get the title.
He brought Magore’s Fiends to table which my skaven were clearly not amused about. We played two matches which left me with a deep knowledge of what not to do when facing Khorne’s puppies.
Match one: I scored well in round one and two, but was left with only Krrrrrrrrk on the table. I love this name. Krrrk. He ran as fast as he possibly could when I sneaked away in the first activation of round three (using great concussion to increase the distance between the fiends and Krrrrrrrrrrrk). From a distance I scored another four glory to bring home the victory 12:7.
Lessons learned: Don’t let Skritch die after giving him 4 upgrades. Running is good. Activate Krrrrrk more often to say his name.
Match two: I had the urge to draw both Mulligans at the beginning of the match. It was only after the Mulligan that I knew that was a horrible, horrible mistake. How can I summarise what happened? I scored literally 0 glory until round three’s end phase (where I got 1 glory by dumping all other cards…). Andrej’s golden retriever killed all skaven quickly and without problems. I lost this massacre 1:10.
Lessons learned: Keep Mr. Mulligan in your pocket. Don’t let Skritch die (seriously just make sure this guy survives). Running is only good when you are winning.
I will replace 4 cards from my deck (next article will focus on this).
