Episode 92 – The Lore of Death Review

The Lore of Death Review.

In this episode we get together to review the Lore of Death and also talk about some recent events we have attended.

Fortnight in Fantasy

Mark has been painting Skeleton Warriors for his tomb kings army using the Vampire Counts Skeletons with the Tomb King warrior shields.  Ben has not done any hobby this fortnight and should be duly chastised!  Gareth has been given a Mortis Engine by Super Hobbyist Steve Wren.  Huge thanks to Steve for that one.

In gaming we all attended the Brothers In Arms Team event where Gareth got his taste of top table gaming as we faced all 3 of the final top 3 teams.  Mark and Gareth talk about their first taste of a team event and how it was different to a normal single tournament.

Open War Army Swap

Mark also played in a 1 day tournament where 8 from the 24 players decided to do a random army swap.  Mark used this High Elves army:

Archmage Metal
Mage Light
30 spears
10 archers
16 archers
23 lions
6 Swordsmasters
5 Swordsmasters
5 Swordsmasters
5 dragon princes
3 eagles
1 repeater boltthrower

The list was widely renowned as being a soft one but Mark managed to come in 2nd place.

The Lore of Death Review

The Lore of Death is one of the lores in the game that really have a huge impact on games in terms of overall strategy, tactics and list building.  We run down the Lore Attribute and each of the spells giving in-depth details of how they work and what are their best applications.  As with our other reviews we cover how to get the best from the Lore of Death by using it in combination with other lores and units in your army.

Gareth’s Query Corner

Gareth has had more letters from the postman!  Chris Taylor’s wife, Helen, asks if the show is appropriate for her 3 week old baby and what army should she buy for her daughter.  Mike from Alberta, Canada also sent a letter and wants to know if big beards are creepy!  We get asked about Giants, Vampires vs Hydras, FAQ queries about Lore of Beasts.  We have a load of questions from  Facebook, the first one is talking a out comping big spells effecting the meta game, James (Nigella) Asks about Empire Detachments and scoring points, Grant asks how to get none nerd friends into Warhammer.  Over on twitter We get asked about different order of shooting and what scenarios force scouts to deploy as normal.
