Well, haven't posted here for a while, but I finally have my sentinels so I will now
Since we found out their stats, I've wanted to play this list:
- Molik Karn
- Cyclops Brute
- Cyclops Raider
- Basilisk Krea
Except for a couple of proxy games over a year ago, I hadn't played it until last night where I got two games in.
First one v Ryan (Thyra) one of them one shorted Durant with puppet master and snipe, then morghoul feated and pushed forward hard. He used an admonition move to get b2b with a sentinel with his animus up making him def 19 to most things. Ryan charged him with three flamebringers needing boxcars on non-charge attacks or double 5s on a charge attack to give me grievous wounds stopping transfers. He got boxcars on I think his second or third last attack, then the blood of martyrs put him into the dirt D: it was a nice assassination to watch though
Second game v Michael (Family reunion) we grinded it out for ages. IF boom howlers with the chronicler are no joke. The boomies don't do enough damage themselves though and the sentinel animus was doing work keeping morghoul safe and making the brute and themselves doubly annoying to deal with. Molik and sentinel shots took care of most of the champs, with morghoul killing a few boomies a turn with puppet master and the krea animus. After a while Michael sent Borka in to deal with the brute on his feat turn to get up to 3 cp's. The next turn I had a sentinel two hand throw Gudrun at an iron fleshed Borka who was out of range of the keg carrier after charging the previous turn. I rolled snakes for the Str check, but Michael rolled a 1 too lol. Some Paingivers topped up the one beast in his command to prevent transfers, then a sentinel took a free strike (who cares) and shot him, dropping him to 6 before morghoul tickled him to death. There's something satisfying about getting to a warcaster, adding up their health points and saying "take 8 tough checks". Good game though.
It showed me that the list is super tools-y even with a dead feat. Also, the sentinel animus is easily spread round to cover other things and def 13 is that point where opposing beasts really need to start boosting attacks to make sure they hit. Loving the list so far. If anything, I might swap one willbreaker for an extoller or orin down the track, and MAYBE the brute and krea for a soldier, but so far I'm really happy with it.
