This post is going to be something that I’ve been working on for a while in my head. It’s going to be hard enough to convey the message that I want, so I’ve shied from actually typing this one up. However, I think now is as good a time as any. Lets get this out of the way.
Well. I finally did It. With nine slayers assembled and painted, I decided to take them with me as my pair for Scaverous in what turned out to be a massive local tournament (32 players with multiple turned away). How did it go? Let’s talk about it!
Building on last weeks finally of the Tour de Cryx, extended play edition with Skarre 3, I wanted to go back and talk about the Boat Host games I played in the tournament and afterward, looking at what I had going on. It wasn’t a long tournament, but its worth a look, still.
Once I’d played a few games with Skarre 3, I was pretty solidly in love with both the concept and the character. She is a strong and versatile caster that runs melee the way I like to run melee. I’d not run into anything that challenged the casters durability or long game, but I was confident with her. So confident, I decided to take her to a tournament, and pair her with a list I was determined not to play unless I saw absolutely no way to win with Skarre 3. She did well, let’s see the lessons.

Back over two months ago, I wrote up a few lists with Skarre 3 for when she came out, and I’ve finally been able to get more than theory time with her. I’ve dropped her onto the table three times now, so let’s take a look at what she’s done and where I am considering taking her in the future.
She is finally on the way. Skarre 3, Admiral of the Black Fleet, has come to our pre-order doors and she is available in her carded glory to theorize and build lists on. Today, the first part of our experience with Skarre 3. There is likely to be a massive time span between today’s theory and the first two games because she’s not coming out for some time you. Welcome to Skell likely returns next week!
The Tour is over, but as each caster receives new imaginings, or is released for the first time, I’m still going to take some time to go through them. I’ve finished up the five games with the New Deneghra 2, and though I will play many more with her as she is incredibly deep, these are my current impressions.
Well, I knew I wouldn’t be done at the end of the year, because Skarre 3 was on the horizon, but until the CID came about and Denny 2 got a massive facelift, I wasn’t sure I would be coming back to the Tour so soon. Just a few short weeks ago, we were given the new look of our Wraith Witch Supreme, and man, It looks great.
This years main focus, gaming wise, was the Tour de Cryx, and though at times i had extreme doubt about whether or not I was going to be able to finish it, I made it to the end with plenty of time to spare. Its a great feeling, but now what? First, I have to look back in order to look ahead.
