Mayhem Pack Formation

Post  Lore Weaver on Mon Mar 24, 2014 8:31 am

On Sunday, Dallas and I had a throwdown.

I played a slight variation on the list I posted in Army Lists with the Mayhem pack.

Dallas played Serpent Spam, which was a horrendous matchup for what I had taken.

Now, the rest of my Army fell apart, but the Helbrutes themselves did rather well.

Two of them more than made their points back, while one nearly did.

===

Loadouts:
Plain MM & Fist
Twin Las and Scourge
Double Fist, Double Flamer

I had gotten Fire Frenzy a bunch, which was handy when downing wave serpents. I missed the one that mattered though (which could've won me the game! (The one with the Wraith Blades, Dallas). I got Rage & Fleet once, which was helpful in crushing some dudes as well.

Power Scourge is super cool. Dropping a dude down from WS 5 to 4 or 3 is very helpful.

===

Things I've noticed playing AV12 walkers.

AV 12 is not super resilient in close combat. I had to watch and hope for low rolls on Witchblades. // In a regular game against Matt this weekend, it was Krak Grenades. In your mind, when you think about that combat, it's all, "Hey, he needs a 6 to glance, who cares!" well, when you get 10 attacks and you have no recourse to that 6 to glance... it's kinda scary.

Yes I did.

I failed IWND rolls all game. Upwards of 4+ a turn. Had I made a couple of key ones, the game would've been wildly different.

Also, I'm not sure I played my Deepstrike right. If a Helbrute lands in a forest... does anybody hear? ... kidding aside, I rolled dangerous terrain, then rolled a "1" and took a hullpoint, but didn't immobilize. We didn't bother looking it up at the time, I figured "it's a walker, not a vehicle"

Update:

A few more games in. Playable, but not over-the-top.
