The first battle today was a quick Kaya vs. Sorscha where Steve taught Greg the 19 inch threat trick.

The second game was a Harbinger vs. Maelok. Greg has a very effective Harbinger list he's been practicing and I think Maelok is one of the better options for Minions when facing the all powerful 12 year old blind girl. The game started out very much in my favor with a good Bog Trogg ambush onto his knights errant. Destroying everyone in the unit except the standard bearer that turn. Totem hunter and Gator Posse finished off the Seneshal. Greg retaliated with a very powerful ranged turn from a Reckoner doing devastating blows to Maelok. I didn't protect him nearly enough, and with purification removing spiny growth he was down to his 17 armor. Harbinger also popped her feat.
Maelok retaliated by popping his feat, effectively negating Harbinger's feat, though the Bog Trogs and Wrong Eye were too far away to be affected by Maelok's counter feat. I slammed into the paladins with the Gatormen Posse and Bull Snapper forcing Harbinger to martyr roughly 8 times, this was only doable because Greg kept rolling 1 point of damage!
The next turn Greg opened a charge lane with some paladin killing blows, including Vilmon slaying 1 of his own paladins of the wall! (Moral victory right there in my opinion.) Then sent the Avatar right at Maelok who was sitting on 3 transfers but only 2 hit points left. The Avatar with guided hand rolls 3 1's missing Maleok with the charge attack. After the laughter subsided he took two more attacks forcing me to pass off 2 transfers. Then the Reckoner took a ranged shot at Maelok needing an 11 to hit and connected, also setting him on fire. This was transfered off as well. Now for all the marbles. The vassal moved up to the Reckoner and did an ancillary attack needing a 9 to hit on two dice. Rolled an 11 and finishing off Maelok.
All an all a I like Maelok. I think I would drop a turtle for another Gatormen Posse and tweak the list a little further. I also want to experiment with Calaban vs. Harbinger. I think I might be able to angle some good tricks vs. her. Maelok is a little heavily reliant on some key up keeps, that are hard to manage with purification on a 10 focus caster.
Next up on the painting block is Thunder Pig! Though I have no idea how long he will take to crank out. Until next time!
