Mountain King takes on Stormwall

Posted: November 4, 2013 in Gaming, Trollbloods

Another 50pt game and this time Cygnar under the command of eHayley with Stormwall to boot. I knew I would be facing the Stormwall so took Mulg in the hope that he or the Mountain King would be able to wreck the colossal. The strategy was simple – set them both up opposite the Stormwall and use the Rush animus of the Axer to get them in as soon as possible.
The Stormwall came out strong putting Bruce in trouble with a hail of bullets. Luckily Bruce managed to hang tough, and after gobbling up a load of Whelps he was in good enough shape to go colossal hunting. He ploughed into the Stormwall and put it in serious trouble. Mulg had a simple job to charge in and bash it into scrap metal during his activation.
The Cygnar fought back bravely taking Bruce next turn, but the Trolls were in a good table position and starting scoring control points. The game turned into an attrition match and the Trolls scored steadily on their objective until they ran out winners 5-0.
I enjoyed Mulg and have to say I’m loving the Axer as a replacement to the Impaler who has been my staple light beast in the past. His Rush animus is brilliant and was key to me getting Mulg and Bruce into the Stormwall and securing the win. Having said that I think I’ve sufficiently reminded myself of how the Trolls work and fancy a change. I might get the Khador out again or possibly start exploring Circle.

    Having just started trolls and hearing the horror stories of how bad the Mountain King is, this post has helped me see it’s not just the stats it’s how you use the model. And it is such an awesome model, which btw yours has a lovely paint job.
