An AOE heavy list, this army is built to able to fight against infantry machine while still containing a moderate amount of hitting power to help you deal with the tougher elements of an enemy list such as jacks and beasts.

The Kriel Warrior line runs as wide as possible and works to block line of sight while benefitting from Star Crossed and the concealment buff from the Chronicler. When engaging the enemy front line switch to Hero's Tragedy to force the enemy to either eat free strikes or get knocked down while killing your front line.

The subsequent turn on Calandra's feat turn you can either aim bombs into the holes of the Kriel Warrior line against the knocked down models or charge the back of your own line and use Tremor to knock down the models in front, giving the Kriels an opportunity to gang up on the enemy big guys and use those cabers to maximum effect under her feat.

The Bomber and Swamp Troll provide devastating backup support while working toward the opportunity to drag out the enemy caster and pound them into paste.
