Game #19. Madrak2 vs Kolgrima1

Hey guys!
Last Thursday I had a pleasure to play against Kevin – the best Trollblood player in Poland who is also a really nice and helpful guy. He brought Kolgrima in SotN and I choose another Madrak2 version. Here are the lists:

[Theme] Band of Heroes
[Madrak 2] Madrak Ironhide, World Ender [+28]
– Dire Troll Bomber [19]
– Troll Bouncer [9]
Trollkin Runebearer [0(5)]
Fell Caller Hero [0(5)]
Fell Caller Hero [0(5)]
Horthol, Long Rider Hero [8]
Kriel Warriors (min) [7]
Krielstone Bearer & Stone Scribes (min) [6]
– Stone Scribe Elder [3]
Sons of Bragg [11]
Trollkin Fennblades (max) [15]
– Trollkin Fennblade Officer & Drummer [5]
Trollkin Long Riders (max) [20]

[Kolgrima 1] Kolgrima Stonetruth, Winter Witch [+28]
– Dire Troll Brawler [16]
– Dire Troll Mauler [15]
– RΓΆk [19]
– Trollkin Runebearer [0(5)]
Northkin Shaman [4]
Northkin Shaman [4]
Swamp Gobber Chef [1]
Valka Curseborn, Chieftain of the North [0(6)]
Krielstone Bearer & Stone Scribes (min) [6]
– Northkin Elder [3]
Northkin Bear Handlers & Battle Bears [10]
Northkin Bear Handlers & Battle Bears [10]
Northkin Raiders (max) [15]

As you can see, this is some interesting list with Raiders screening 3 murderous beasts supported by up to 6 sprays, with 2 amush Bears units on top of that, and cloud wall for additional protection.

Kevin won the starting roll and went first, mostly just running to take position. Kolgrima put cloud wall to the right of a house, locking my Bomber capabilities.
In my first turn I run as well preparing for Bears and put 2 Bisons and some Fenns in threat of enemies. In addiotional, one Kriel Warrior run in front of clouds. I used Bomber to shot that Warrior hoping for miss and lucky deviation which could take down Raiders. Unfortunately I hit my poor man and he toughed πŸ™‚

Kevin round 2. Kolgrima Cursed Fenns. One units of Bears came for my left killing 3 Fenns and almost killed 1 Long Raider (I toughed). Northkin Raiders with Shaman cleared more Fenns. On the right flank Raider took care of 2 Warriors. Rok and Valka positioned just behind the clouds.

On my turn 2 I started with Fenns vengance moves, bout they failed me πŸ™‚ It went even worse, when all Long Raiders failed to kill Bears – the bottom one survived barely scratched – and he last there to the very end of the game! Runebearer cast Eruption on one Raider (I wanted him and maybe Shaman dead), but he missed and put cloud in play. I clear Raiders with Bouncer and Fenns, with one Fenn contesting flag. Warriors run to engage Rok and Valka. Fell Caller parked b2b with flag. 1:0 for me.

Kevin round 3. Another ambush Bears came from the left and massacred Long Riders, leaving only one alive. Left Shaman sprayed over Bouncer, Runebearer and Stone Scribes, killing 2 Scribes. Mauler came closer to get rid of whatever will come for Rok. Raiders, Rok and Valka killed Warriors and 2 of Sons of Bragg. Kolgrima FEATed. Gobber Chef came to the flag. Points – 1:1.

My turn 3. Last Fenn with weapon used Vengance on black Bear but without effect. Fenns and Long Rider dance with Bears. Madrak FEATed and killed 1 Raider. Bouncer killed Shaman, 2 Raiders and hit Brawler. Brawler hit him back (Retaliatory Strike from animus) πŸ™‚ Bomber couldn’t shoot because of Kolgrima feat, so he charged Valka and Rok, killing the first one and did some dmg to the other. Horthol with Blood Fury did some more dmg to Rok. Last Son of Bragg did more dmg to Rok, but the beasts was still functioning (ony mind crippled). No points scored.

Kevin turn 4. He killed almost all of my forces, leaving only Madrak and one Fell Caller on the table. We just checked if Madrak can put wounded Rok into dirt, and with Blood Fury on – he did it with 2 attacks. Then I lost on scenario…

But hey – victory for the Trolls!

After this game I decided my (hopefully final) list I will test tommorow. Horthol goes out, Kriel Warriors grow to max unit, battlegroup change to classic Mauler + Earthborn set. Sons are out too. I also decided to go full pro and add 2 Skinners. No more jokes! πŸ˜€
