Warlord Bridge Troll
« on: November 04, 2017, 01:27:41 PM »
Here's a play I pulled last night, looking for comments on how to improve and what the weak spots are.

T1: 19 mana
Move to B3
Final QC: Teleport to B2
remain 17 mana

T2: 26 mana
QC: General's Signet Ring
Action: Bridge Troll
remain 11 mana

T3: 20 mana
QC: Commander's Cape
Action: Bridge Troll
Push with Bridge Troll
remain 6 mana

T4: 15 mana
Action: Bridge Troll
Push with two Bridge Trolls
remain 4 mana

T5: 13 mana
Action: Bridge Troll
Push with three Bridge Trolls
optional QC: Lesser Teleport (if you need to get away)
remain mana 2 (or 0).

After T5 you can keep keep producing level 3 Dwarfs of your preference (Crossbowman, Kriegsbiel, Kriegshammer or Panzergrade) or you can focus on supporting your Trolls. I expect the mage to take some damage during the first 5 Turns and I'm ok with that :)

Worked well last night against Siren. Took out Water Elemental and Naiya and did 17 damage on enemy mage by turn 8, he surrendered...

the trolls are pretty cool and getting three in play quickly should be scary. have you used it on anyone yet, and how did they react to the threats. was it successful.

I don't get to play much unfortunately, but I did try it against a Siren. She casted Water Elemental and Naiya, I casted 4 trolls. The elemental pushed us around a bit, but that didn't create any real problems. Both her creatures were dead by turn 7 or 8 and she was left alone with 17 damage against 4 bridge trolls and Warlord with no damage...

Hello grga.curkovic,

I like your tactic, but I have a few questions.

First: Which warlord are you playing? that could make a huge differences. Personally I like the the Bloodwave since you can gain armor from the Vet tokens.

On turn 5 you may want the armorery for the armor (the Troll is good, but an armored toll is great)

Lastly. You should probably try the Vanguard Dwarf since he is cheap and can protect you.

Thanks, I don't remember which one it was. I usually pick my warlords based on Battle Orders that suit what I want to achieve better...

You can use Bootcamp if you really want to, it's 100% free.

But without real dice, beer, cigarettes and swearing it just doesn't do it for me 8)
Kidding (mostly), the idea of online gaming is just not appealing enough, I've tried it with Memoir '44...

Boot camp is free, but I'm pretty sure it requires an actual copy of Windows os to make it work and that costs $

I thought that was only if you already owned win 7 or later?

It is. Boot camp needs a licensed version of Windows and even with that it's not an easy process and it runs slow.
