I know this has been discussed, but I was holding out until I had at least played some of the scenarios.
Today was basically a warmup for the guys going to the Dragoncon SR at the end of the month.
I played Cryx in the pendelum battle against Menoth.
Lists were straight forward, 750 points.
Mine was Goreshade, DJ, 9 BKs, 6 Bane thralls, 2 pistol wraiths, tartarus, 2 deathrippers, skarlock, 9 bile thralls and max mechthralls.
The menoth list was eKreoss, avatar, 2 repenters, 2 min exemplar knights, 2 seneschals, max zealots with monolith bearer, piper.
Rolled off, he chose to deploy and go second. Bascially, that won the game for me. AD the deathjack, move across to his side first turn, ran the rest of my army. After that, he never could clear out my troops from his side. He collapsed one of my flanks, but my other flank collapsed his.
Going first in this scenario is TOO much of an advantage. Especially when combined with advanced deployment. So, kinda disappointing in the end.
