Hi everyone, I have been a long time lurker of these forums. I play AoS and have recently started a Fyreslayer army. I hope to go Mono- Fyreslayers then on to Steamhead Dwarves/Duardin whenever they come out! I have a Stormcast and Ogre army but I loved playing with the Fyreslayers in my first game last night!
I had them combined with my Stormcast for a 2000 point game against a lot of Skaven, 213 wounds of Skaven. I knew I could not win as it was the scenario in the Generals Handbook where the more models you have near an objective you capture it. His units were huge. Did that stop the forces of Order? Nope! I may not have won on points but I did slay a lot of Skaven!
Auric Runefather on Magmadroth (320)
Grimwrath Berzerker (100)
Auric Runesmiter (100)
Lord Castellant (100)
Auric Hearthguard x 15 (300)
Vulkite Berzerkers x 20 (320)
Paladin Retributors x 10 (440)
Judicators x 5 (160)
Judicators x 5 (160)
So I cant remember what happended in each turn but it was very informative. The Runefather with a combined effort of some Hearth Guard wiped out 40 Plague Monks (Battle shock helped too ).
I was amazed at the Runefather the D6 Mortal Wounds breath the blood and the tail along with the Hearthguard shooting was immense combined with his own melee and the Magmadroths melee. I look forward to unleashing him again!
Hearthguard were great. Especially when they were charged by Clan Rats that were attacking them and a unit of Judicators and were in range of Storm Vermin that were being held up by the Grimwrath. Threw my Axes into the Clan Rats then fired 30 Magmabolts into the horrible Storm Vermin.
The Grimwrath into two rounds of combat and got his extra pile twice but he was slain by the Storm Vermin but he took a lot out. I gave him the weapon that adds an extra -1 rend to his axe . Still undecided on what the Grimwrath is suited to. The rules seem to suggest he is best used when he is clearly out numbered.Any tips you guys have would be great!
Unfortunately my Vulkites and Runesmiter did not make it into the game until turn three when and there was no way of me winning. Although the "ward save" was great 9 wounds went through, only 2 died. Then they hit back with 36 attacks. My opponents face was great when i said "re rolling failed hits!"
Next time i might tunnel the Hearthguard and have the Vulkites ready to go from turn one. My plan is to get a Battlesmith and 10 extra Vulkites and slowly move to a Mono Fyreslayer army.
Next time I play I think I'll add my Heraldor instead of the Castellant, it will take the points up to 2020 but my gaming group is pretty good with stuff like that.
The Rets and Judicators did the usual shooty, shooty, mortal woundy business. We dont care about those shiny Lightening Men.
