Extra Life – The Heretic Does Good

Originally posted on Flock & Awe Podcast:

Last year, I was invited to join in with the Disorderlies, and do the Extra Life thing. We played games and destroyed sleep patterns for 25 hours, and raised over $1800 for Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
This year, on October 25th, we are doing it again. Team Disorderlies is rolling dice, flipping cards, and moving board pieces to raise money for kids with cancer.
Challenges are already being made, and accepted. So far, the game list is looking like Warhammer, Deadzone, Conflict of Heroes, WarmaHordes, Spartacus, Runewars, and possibly Cards against Humanity and Malifaux (yes, I will make sure my Seamus crew is built before then!).
If you would like to help, please click the large shiny link, and below I will share the official blurb.
Dear Friends and Family,
I’m on a mission to save kids and I need your help. My local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital…

So a slow move towards getting some of my CoC completed, here are some of the Attunement Servitors.

Beared-itorial

Survived another Breast Cancer Brawl in Leeds on Sunday, a good time was had by all :)

As I have mentioned before I decide to take CoC and it was the first time playing Warmachine since the last BCB as you may have noticed I have been playing a LOT of Malifaux recently.

Anyway always good for a change round-up, so I took 2 lists to give things a go. One was slightly silly while the other was something I randomly threw together.

List 1

  • Syntherion
  • Prime Axiom
  • Prime Axiom
  • Corollary

List 2

  • Axis
  • Inverter
  • Cipher
  • Galvanizer
  • Galvanizer
  • Corollary
  • Max Reciprocators
  • Algorithmic Dispersion Optifex
  • Algorithmic Dispersion Optifex
  • Attunement Servitors
  • Reflex Servitors

In the end I went 2-2 and actually won and lost with both lists so will take that as a win really :D

Round 1 – pButcher – Lost

This is Butcher Tier list involving incredibly hard to deal with Ironfang Pikemen, against Butcher as well figured Syntherion wouldn’t be best idea, so went with Axis.

Long story short, I lost after a failed assassination run using Axis, dice were not kind and it was a Hail Mary shot as I was losing the attrition game fast. Although the Razor Wall proved to at least help slow him down a bit.

Round 2 – Pstryker – Won

This was a relatively Jack Heavy list for a pStryker list, I had taken the Prime Squared list. On top of the amount of shooting the Primes kick out I wiped everything off the board. I felt bad as there was nothing the list could do against them

Round 3 – Borka – Lost

This round was against my mate with his 2 Mountain Kings so we went for a Colossal off. I have won against this list before but this time with the outranging of his MKs he piece traded me off the board. Although we did have the LOL moment of the day when Borka failed an assassination and then Syntherion then also failed!

Round 4 – pButcher – Won

Having to go against another Butcher list and it was the last round decided to give Axis and the list I threw together one more go. Axis did the job on Feat turn which was pretty cool, however the moment for me was the Inverter counter-charging the Behemoth and knocking him down before he could do nasty things to Axis with those guns! My opponent had rotten luck though failing to hit my Reciprocators with his Pikemen on feat turn. I have not seen so many double 1s and 1s & 2s in a long while.

Had a great day and found that the Convergence sit pretty well with me, as I was always worried about the induction mechanic but I am loving what they can do. Does help that I am loving their Vectors across the board. All hail the Primes ;)

In other news I appear to have won a certain big brained warcaster from a pretend faction…..So I may have a pink army ready for next years BCB. I have said too much….

Congrats to all though for raising more than £600 for Macmillan Charity :D

 Painting & Hobby

I didn’t manage to be 100% painted for BCB :( Mr Axis was only basically painted rather than bells & whistles but he didn’t look to out of place.

I have somehow managed to complete most of my Cult of December stuff with only the Wendigo left to do. I have also started on my Pandora crew with a very red theme.

As always make sure you check out the guys at the outpost who now over 20% off RRP on everything on their site.


Cerebus

The big cat, rocking a nice black/grey coat, was really surprised by the texture on the model to say you can hardly feel/see it in real life it does add some nice looks to the big cat..

 

 


Thunderbear – Toshiro

Another Thunderbear article this time I am looking at the man who is proving very popular for me. Everyone needs a bit of summoning in their list and if he can do it with some added fast as well. Well that is gravy as they say. That waffle intro is basically me saying am talking about Toshiro the Daimyo.

Stats

He is not pretty average stats-wise with average Wk and Df. While his Wp is better, he also has a decent number of wounds and is a henchmen so can use soulstones.

Abilities

On to his abilities;

Hard to Wound +2 – Very handy as it means most of the time damage against him will be on a negative flip.

Feudal Ties: Allows a crew his in to hire Punk Zombies regardless of Faction. Handy if you want to try some in 10T

Daimyo – This is the start of his love for Minions, any close by gain positive flips for attack actions.

Bloated Stench – Enemies that cause damage with a melee attack take damage for doing so. Very much like black blood but more direct.

Attack Actions

Ancestral Katana – Above average Ml which has decent range and OK damage track. Standard for a Henchmen but he does have a positive attack flip with it.

  • War Eternal – Tome – This is built-in so if Toshiro cheats the damage he gets to draw a card.
  • Next Target – Mask – Allows him to move a short distance in any direction (this is always handy if you need to be somewhere else after hitting).
Tactical Actions

Both his Tactical actions are for the love of his minions in the list. But you can only use one as they are both zero actions.

The Daimyo’s Price – Any 8 is needed, allow you to discard a Corpse or friendly scheme marker to give all friendly minions Focused Condition. If they haven’t activated yet and you have more than 1 minion in range then this can be very nasty. On top of his Daimyo ability as well!!

War Fan – Any 8 is needed as well for this one but grants Fast to a minion. Great on a few things but 10T archer springs to mind so it can move and then still rapid fire!

  • Lethal Lunacy – Mask – if you get the trigger you can also push the minion as well. Helps some of the slower minions such as Rail workers.
Upgrades

Command the Graves – Costs 1ss and grants 2 different summoning actions. Both need a 9 but the suit is dependent on the action (both summons also cause damage).

  • Eternal Servitude – Crows needed: Summons an Ashigaru using a Corpse Marker.
  • Eternal Guardian – Times needed: Summons a Komainu using a Scrap Marker.

Other upgrades that worth looking are at Recall Training because you can never have enough positive flips. Apart from that Toshiro just keeps going under his own power.

Crew

Toshiro is like Kang in that he likes to spread himself about the masters. Yes he fits well into a Yan Lo crew but I have had success with Mei Feng, using the scrap (or corpse) left by rail workers means Toshiro is keeping your activation numbers up.

On top of that any minions you take will love him, he is almost made to make the 10T archers useful (mine are rubbish in games :( ).

Overall

10T have some great Henchmen and Toshiro keeps this going he works great as a central figure that hands buffs to minions. He can also take a hit and be able to at least hand it back. Although he will still crumble to big hitters.

There is always a place for something that can help keep your activation numbers up with summoning.
