I have gotten a few games in with pIrusk and while I havent really "won" any games, I have learned a hell of a lot. Mostly about playing the game, it is really complex. Very much more so than 40k in a lot of ways.
I am very impressed with how well the rule set plays and I am pretty comfortable operation within these rules at this point.
I was pretty hesitant to use Conquest early. In my mind, hes the coolest thing I own, and I didn't want to put him on the table get him roflstomped by completely boneheaded play. (Which is what is going to happen anyways, but it'll be trickery and not just fuck ups)
So now that I don't totally suck, I am going to give him a go.
Here is my list at 35 points:
Vladimir, The Dark Prince (*5pts)
* Conquest (19pts)
Great Bears of Gallowswood (5pts)
Iron Fang Pikemen (Leader and 9 Grunts) (8pts)
* Black Dragon Officer & Standard (2pts)
Widowmakers (Leader and 3 Grunts) (4pts)
Gorman di Wulfe, Rogue Alchemist (2pts)
My thought train is pretty simple; get conquest up and in the middle of table as fast as possible and threaten as much as I can with SnP to help ensure my blasts are super effective, while I use the Widow Makers to remove solo threats and clear charge lanes.
Iron Fangs are wave 2, with Flanking Great Bears. Gorman is Gorman, lol, if they have a Colossal I will try to Oil it, or Rust on any Jacks my Greatbears are trying to kill.
Ill post my results tonight, but I am pretty excited about this.
How are you guys running your Colossals? Slow and ponderous gun platforms or up in peoples faces laying down the law with fist and cannon?
