There are bigger and nastier threats out there than me. This man for instance... I'll leave you to decide who he is.
Been reading twitter, Wow, do I feel like I'm going to be a target on the weekend. Epidemius in a Portaloo. Well really.
I played 1 game against Sam where Epidmius didn't really have an effect. It was like this Sam miscasting on his Prophet on a carpet and losing 3 levels, me getting two consecutive snake eyes on daemonic instability for my beasts combat versus K'dai getting 10 wounds back each time, then Curse of the leper on his unit of Infernal guard and Plague Winding through the unit (killing 20+). by the time the GUO charged into the flank of his K'dai with the Eternal blade (8 Str 10 hits) we called it. Bad luck for Sam, good luck for me.
Possible combinations I can get on GUO that might be worth half a damn before the protalglyph.
Reroll on exalted table and a free lesser gift (random)
Eternal blade (Choice)
+2 Toughness (T9 GUO) (Random)
Then the following.
Free dispel die. (Random)
+3 attacks (or just default to eternal blade Random)
Bringer of the swarm (Free Furies) (Random)
Rock of Inevitability (Free terrain) (Choice) (maybe against Dwarfs if there isn't enough terrain)
Then probably ASF or sword of swift slaying.
Possible combinations on Greater gift table for my Herald
There is a lot of smoke and mirrors out there at the moment. The main threats are the 2 skaven lists, the empire list and the hoard of dwarves invading the gaming scene at the moment.
