pVlad and Conquest - Tonights the night!


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.

CONQUEST, HOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is my list at 35 points:

Points: 35/35
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?


  1. I do need Mechanics. Unfortunately I am involved in a pretty slow moving trade on Dakka that involves the Mechanics, so I am hesitant to go out and buy them. I will use them, sooner than later!

  2. Sooo, I made a small adjustment to the list before we played so I could use a couple models I picked up.

    I dropped the Greatbears for a unit of Kayazy Eliminators and a Widowmaker Marksmen.

    I played against eBaldur and he didn't have a good answer for Conquest in the middle of table on turn 1.

    It eventually came down to my eliminators clearing out his back field and then assassinating Baldur from behind.

    It was my first legit win since Dok and I got a grasp on the game.

    Conquest 1 - Rest of World 0
