    Great batrep guys, in depth enough to give insight, short enough to be watched on a lunch break.

    One thing you cannot charge after using fire and fade, so the fire dragons would have stayed behind the wall and not charge the crawler. Which in my opinion would have been better for you. Out of LOS, close enough the mortar could not hit you, and the crawler could not have charged you either. You would have zoned out two objectives and probably killed a few vehicles to boot.

      Yeah, I made a mistake there and yes, Frankie and I talked about it later, it would have been better to wait and run out and blast it.

    Yeah the suicide lock. I watched it at double speed because i’m ADHD. However, i wounder why you didn’t throw the spirit stone on the warlock. I feel like it tend to get more milage, and quicken is soooooo good, plus the warlocks are really vulnerable to perils they die almost every time. Though against as i went double speed, and you might not of mentioned in the stone came in handy on the farseer.

    How did you feel about the avatar. he seems worth it a bit thier he got to slow down morty quite a bit, bbut other than that i dont know if he’s worth it if your have an opponent like your AM where they aren’t coming your way. He’s just so slow you know??

      I usually put the stones on the Warlock/Spiritseer, yes. I agree it is better.

      The Avatar is great but Frankie would not fail a save and I was just rolling badly. He did like, 4 damage total in multiple rounds of combat, it was silly. He is usually quite powerful for me and serves a useful purpose of keeping things away, but in this instance he simply didn’t do much damage.

      Vs. AM it’s not so bad, he is a character and he honestly isn’t that slow. I often find he serves a valuable purpose simply holding mid-table. But hey, I also use him because I absolutely love the model, so YMMV.
