Warlock Round up -- Moshar

I find Moshar one of the trickier warlocks in Circle. To prevent myself from just stream of consciousness my thoughts on him I need to do a pro con list for him as well.


  • Great spell list
I really love curse of shadows on circle. Anything that lets me not take a gorax or double up with a gorax for an absolutely brutal assault. Crevasse is a great spell specially with sands of fate to protect him. I don't like killing my own stuff for my opponent, but you cannot deny how powerful this spell can be.
  • Eyeless sight is beautiful
I really enjoy Eyeless sight, it's like cheating without the guilt.
  • maltreatment with regenerating warbeasts
Maltreatment is pretty simple, but what makes it so good with Moshar is the ability to heal the damage you due by generating a fury on a warbeast.
  • high fury

  • Old man stats
Moshar has to hide in the back. This is really easy with Sands of Fate, but I hate having to kill my own model every time I want to be offensive with Moshar. Gallows grove come out sooner. :(
  • Very limited feat - only super effective by hordes
This is pretty simple. It basicly only prevents arc nodes from warmachine, while it can be devastating vs. hordes.
  • Hard to remember spells (this is lack of use, but makes him a hard warlock to pick up for newer players)
Sunhammer and mirage are tough to remember spells for newer players. I love these spells and out of my 2 games I constantly forgot to use them. Just need to practice him a lot more.


With my first list I went light beasts and messed around with some of the typical Moshar items, like Wolves of Orboros. I'm not really a fan of WoO but I love Morraig, and during this game vs Kallus Morraig was a serious all-star. I landed two 5 damage dice charges. One of them being the death blow on Kallus which is so entertaining. Mat 10 with 5 damage dice is such a solid attack.

Moshar vs. Kallus  1 - 0

Mohsar the Desertwalker (*5pts)
* Pureblood Warpwolf (9pts)
* Warpwolf Stalker (10pts)
Shifting Stones (2pts)
* Stone keeper (1pts)
Tharn Bloodtrackers (Leader and 9 Grunts) (8pts)
* Nuala the Huntress (2pts)
Wolves of Orboros (Leader and 9 Grunts) (6pts)
Wolflord Morraig (5pts)
Celestal Fulcrum (9pts)
Sentry Stone (Leader and 3 Manikins) (3pts)

After my first game I decided to try some new ideas and stop using the "musts." Though gorax did find himself in the list, I really loved bloodtrackers and bloodweavers for mirage targets. I also wanted to try curse of shadows and primal to remove any hard targets off the table. This looked very solid, but Moshar was a little too close early on and caught a ravagore blast damage hit setting him on fire and throwing him to two hit points by the end of turn 2. I still squeaked out a victory, but that was more luck then skill. I shifted the stones the shifting stones ua behind Lylith then sands of fate into her rear arc and proceeded to bash her to death.

Overall Moshar is my absolutely favorite warlock in the fluff. Out of all the Warlocks I'd have to say I like Moshar the least with play style. I will clarify though, I don't think he is weak in the slightest. I just don't like his feel.
