Battle Reports: Last Minute Welsh Practice at Firestorm – 9th May, & bonus game from the Hobbit

Firestorm ran another 50pt Masters format event as a WTC fundraiser and with the Welsh Masters is less than a week away so off I went with the usual team CAT FACE members for some fun. Being Masters format there would obviously be some ADR going on, and as I didn’t want to be left out of all the fun I took Rasheth and pMakeda because they’re on the ADR list… from July, oh. Derp, I need to stop doing wierd list things like that but tbh I really wanted to play something drastically different before the Welsh and getting some playtime with next season ADR casters is killing two birds with one stone.

My lists for the day would be:

Dominar Rasheth (*5pts) – Chain Gang T4
* Basilisk Krea (4pts)
* Titan Gladiator (7pts)
* Titan Sentry (8pts)
* Titan Sentry (8pts)
Gatormen Posse (Leader and 4 Grunts) (9pts)
Paingiver Beast Handlers (Leader and 3 Grunts) (2pts)
Venators Reivers (Leader and 9 Grunts) (9pts)
* Venators Reiver Officer & Standard (2pts)
Agonizer (2pts)
Agonizer (2pts)
Paingiver Task Master (2pts)

The Rasheth list is a concept test for me to see how well Reivers work with him. With Rasheth being ADR from July and the gun bugs coming out at some point after that I figured now would be a good time to test out Rasheth gunlines. I have also been enjoying Reivers recently, as they’re part of one of the eXerxis lists i’ve been messing around with.

Archdomina Makeda (*5pts)
* Cyclops Shaman (5pts)
* Archidon (7pts)
* Molik Karn (11pts)
* Titan Gladiator (8pts)
Cataphract Cetrati (Leader and 5 Grunts) (11pts)
Nihilators (Leader and 9 Grunts) (8pts)
Paingiver Beast Handlers (Leader and 3 Grunts) (2pts)
Swamp Gobber Bellows Crew (Leader and 1 Grunt) (1pts)
Mortitheurge Willbreaker (2pts)

In all honesty I didn’t put much thought into the pMakeda list, it is just a collection of models/units that work well with her. Only thing of note is the Shaman, as by the look of things pMak is likely to be next seasons Cryx drop.
