Well the 1st stage groups have been drawn and I was placed in the 3rd group entitled ‘Kroak’.
What do I know about my opponents? Of Joe and Stevie – very little as I have never played them before. For Joe I could guess a blender, Grave guard, Terrorgeist and Stevie – stubborn gutstar, mounted cannon, compulsory core bulls. I’ve also never played Alex however I know that he is using Neil’s Lizardmen army and so I know roughly what models he has available (if not what he will select) – Temple guard and saurus blocks. 4 flyers, slann, multiple skink units (scouts + Krox/skinks + chameleon), Steg, 3 mounted heroes. Once I get the lists I post my thoughts on them.
Am I happy with the group? In general yes. Love whfb so a chance to play consistent games is always a bonus! Not played Vampires in this edition so looking forward to that (until maybe I play them!). Lizards are tough but I’ve beaten them before. Again ogres are tough and the comp has hurt the artillery I would normally use against them but my left field slayer unit selection could work to my advantage against them.
If I had the option, I would have liked Pete, Matt or Greg in the group. They are all in my D&D group at the club (together with Steve M as the DM) but unlike with Steve, I’ve never managed to play any of them at whfb.
