I’ve been riding the Scaverous train for a long while now, seven months, as far as I can remember. Its had ups and downs, and I have had a lot of fun using him and getting used to the list. This tournament I once again brought Scaverous and Gaspy 3 just to make sure that I never encountered guns. It was the Third of the Brawltimore Series that we run down here every year, and this one went the distance: 20 players, 5 rounds. Lets get to the reports!
At NOVA, I was able to get in 4 games with Scaverous. It’s not as many as I wanted (8) but it was more than I expected as I was in charge of the tournaments. Three were in the team tournament, and two were pick up games that I was able to sneak in. Let’s take a look at them!
Well. I’ve been playing a Scaverous list for a while now, and there were some problems with the list. Now, though, after a couple changes, I think I’ve settled on a list I am very, very happy with, especially into this new medium based meta.
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!
I’ve been on a Scaverous kick since before Lock and Load, and I’ve really enjoyed my run with him, which has started to make me curious what I would pair him up with when I finally do get to a tournament. I’ve taken a look at a number of lists and am still trying to parse out what covers, and doesn’t cover the Lord Exhumator.
Back in my day, Assassination was not only a viable solution to Warmachine and Hordes, it was one of, if not the, best solutions. Casters were squishy, spells were powerful, and knockdown was absolutely everywhere. This is how I cut my teeth, so Its no wonder that I itch for assassination all the time. Enter, the Scaverous Solution.
In part 1, I went over the first day of lock and load, as well as the thought process to the pair and a little bit of travel and planning. Now, we’re going to look at day 2 and 3, which promise to be much less interesting, and see how Scaverous shook outplaying him in both Dark Host and Slaughter Fleet
By the time you read this, I’ll have played in another tournament and likely have done maddeningly poorly, but I wanted to write a little bit about a a few of games I played in the last tournament. In this one, I brought Scaverous and Denny 2, and both lists were ones I created on my own. If you know anything about me by now, know that this didn’t go very well.
Last weekend – as I am writing this – I was able to attend an awesome event in Delware at The Icehouse. A 25 man tournament, with 32 slots, run over 2 days with tons of prizes. Competitive players were everywhere, and most games I heard of were awesome – I know all 4.5 of mine were!
The first of the True Tour de Cryx casters has been completed, a couple weeks behind schedule, but still within a viable timeframe. I want to take a look at my overall thoughts, performance and how he worked for me over the course of all the games.
