Nightfall Review ~ Casters

As my local gaming group heads into the Nightfall Championship/Finale scenario I thought I'd spend a few days and a few posts highlighting the best and worst performances.  Starting today with Casters.

Madrak Ironhide, Thornwood Chieftan ~ Saw only one game so far, but it was a doosie.  35 Points and eeked out a luky win when PS 19 Thrown Axe took out a screening Man-O-War and Snap Fire Took Sorcsha in the face dropping her. 
Nightfall Rating 3 Stars. 
Nightfall Question ~ What is Ricochet?

Madrak Ironhide, World Ender ~ Got a lot of action out of this one, lets just say his feat + Fell Blades + Dygmies = Game Over.  Lost in a big 150pt game due to player error (yup I screwed up)
Nightfall Rating 4 Stars.
Nightfall Theme Song ~ Here It Goes Again - by OK GO. 

Hoarluk Doomshaper, Shaman of the Gnarls ~ So this league I decided to try and play some casters that haven't seen a lot of MKII playtime.  Needless to say, this guy is downright fantastic in team and multicaster play.  Throw in some good Fortune and off we go.
Nightfall Rating 4 Stars.
Nightfall Protective Clothing ~ Dire Troll Athletic Supporter.

Hoarluk Doomshaper, Rage of Dhunia ~ We all know it, but this man rocks it hardcore.  Small to medium sized games with Wild Agression on Mulg usually, and Refuge on my Earthborn named Cannonball = very dead Warcasters. Unfortunetly the bigger the game, the harder he falls.
Nightfall Rating 3 Stars.
Nightfall Security Blanket ~ Depends for big big boys.

Grissel Bloodsong ~ The original troop caster, I still absolutely love playing her.  However, after getting in a handful of games the changes to her seem subtle but they have definetly left her weaker than she was before.  Hallowed Avenger being her main saving grace.  Played 3 games with her and lost 4 games with her...
Nightfall Rating 2 Stars.
Nightfall Self Improvement Book of Choice ~ One on One with Tony Little: The Complete 28-Day Body Sculpting And Weight Loss Program.

Grim Angus ~ For those of you that think this guy is worse than he used to be, play him a few times.  If you can't figure it out... um... go play circle.  His Feat is great, Cross Country is fantastic, His snare gun rocks it hardcore.  Other than hitting like a Pygmy bushwacker in melee he is probably one of the best support casters in the game.
Nightfall Rating 4 Stars.
Nightfall Question ~ Am I a Pirate or a Ninja... or a Pinjarate?

Borka Kegslayer ~ The official badass king of the hill.  Get him on the hill and watch your opponents cry when they can't kill him.  This guy won me two king of the hills without even breaking a sweat. 
Nightfall Rating 5 Stars.
Nightfall Comic Book Hero ~ Steel (John Henry Irons), yup cheesy Superman Reference included.

Calandra Truthsayer, Oracle of the Glimmerwood ~ Since my Calandra model is out of town at the moment she has sat on the bench the whole League.  In basketball terms its called a DNP - Coach's decision.  I'm still taking the befuddle and feat changes pretty hard especially when I look at how easy it has been for my Cygnar buddy to kill her with ease. 
Nightfall Rating - Stars.
Nightfall Song ~ Big And Chunky from Madagasgar 2 Soundtrack.
