There were tactical mistakes made on both sides, but this game was about trying to learn the nuances of my list. First off, I made some changes from the list I posted here. I posted my list on the Dark Age Forums, and the feedback there lead me to a little tweaking. Here is the list as I played it last night.
1 Bone Doc
2 Buzz Blades
2 Blood Mistress
I made these changes for a few reasons. First I decided Puppets were a good addition as they are 20 point wounds for Father Mayhem. I swapped the Fetish Bearer for a Bone Doc and Keepsake. This change keeps the Special Abilities, Instigate and Bad Mojo, in play but gives me 2 more casters.
In the game when I added the Keepsakes 8" Instigate bubble to the Father Mayhem destruction, he pretty much single-handedly won me the game. This is nothing to say what the Psycogenics all three were able to cast to enhance his effectiveness.
With me fairly convinced on those three models, the rest of my force is more in flux. Golab's AR 19 is beastly, but a single Critical fail offed him to a Dragyri Spear Slave. The Blood Mistresses and Buzz Blades did not work out well. They died horribly, but then the motto of the game is "Everything Dies".
So here are the two options I'm considering.
w/ 3 Puppets
2 Buzz Blades
w/ 2 Puppets
3 Blood Mistress
Not sure which one I'll choose. If any one has any input I'd love to here it. Until then...
