Interesting win there Prot. Looks like you kept the pressure up on him. Cool you took out Morvenn Valh as she is really powerful if given the chance to swing.
Those Skorpekh Destroyers are really powerful on the offense so it's good to see. What Dynasty did you use in the end?
You mentioned the Annihilation Barge is cheaper... I didn't think it did get a points drop? It's definitely a reasonable bit of kit in my view. Has a lot of shots and against new Orks and Drukhari it'll be useful.
Sorry about the Annihilation barge... I have a brain fart on what the Doomsday Ark is called because I call it something else (that I can't repeat here.)
I used my own "Protarian" Dynasty which is of course movement + Obsec. I actually have used other Dynasties on my heavier troop list because lots of stuff seems to work. However, this is one case I had very little obsec, and a list that absolutely needed forward pressure.
Those 6 Skorpekhs were a lot of fun to play. The Skorpekh Lord, not so much.
Morvenn Valh! That's her name. He showed me the model and explainer her, and I just said, 'yea yea, more Bio Mass!' (Not really understanding the true depth of my ignorance of what she's capable of.
What I clobbered her with was a counter assault. I set up my 20 warrior blob to take a charge, but the Retributors killed 17 (I think it was 17) Warriors, I pulled so many she couldn't attack when it was her turn. I used the Orb, got back about 10. Next turn I counter charge with Skorps, and Skorp lord.
So actually Morvenn never got to swing so I don't know how good she is.
Earlier I meant to say the Doomsday Ark might be a better look at a 20 pt reduction and offers good anti infantry which this list definitely lacks!
