Menoth wills it!

Hello again!
I know, I know, I went all quiet again for a couple of week! Ive not been sat idle during that time tho, Ive been busy building the forces of Menoth to punish all non believers ;)
In my last post I posted my "starter" 25 point Epic Kreoss list, hoping that I would be able to get some games in at that level and then add to the force from there.....However I found out about a 50 point, 2 list event happening less than an hour away, so thought "hey, why not.....lets run out my brand new faction at a tournament straight away"
The first thing I did was add to my Kreoss list, after some tweaking it looked like this -

[00] Grand Exemplar Kreoss (0 / 6 WJ remaining)

[09]  >> Sanctifier

[05] High Exemplar Gravus

[03] Nicia, Tear of Vengeance

 [01] Vassal Mechanik

[08] Exemplar Bastions (4 grunts)

[08] Exemplar Errants (9 grunts)

[02]  >> Exemplar Errant Officer & Standard

[05] Knights Exemplar

[04] Visigoth Juviah Rhoven & Honor Guard

[09] Vessel of Judgement

[02] Saxon O.
This list was going to be both my High defence and High armour cracker, the feat would deal with High defence and the mass of Weapon masters could deal with armour. I chose not to take his Tier list so I could include Nicea, she is an absolute monster on feat turn with 3 auto hitting weapon master attacks! The Sanctifier is my Warjack of choice for this list for one simple reason: with all those bodies out he could fuel himself, letting Kreoss camp focus! Rhoven & co came along to give the vessel the ability to shoot any annoying stealthed solo' worked well ;)
The second list was -
[00] Grand Scrutator Severius (0 / 6 WJ remaining)
[18]  >> Judicator
[08]  >> Reckoner
[06]  >> Redeemer
[02] The Covenant of Menoth
 [01] Vassal Mechanik
[03] Choir of Menoth (5 grunts)
 [08] Exemplar Errants (9 grunts)
[02]  >> Exemplar Errant Officer & Standard
[06] Holy Zealots (9 grunts)
[02]  >> Monolith Bearer
This list was all about damage output and infantry removal, Eye of Menoth combined with Battle makes the blast damage from the Judicator and Redeemer truly terrifying!
Over the course of the event I played against Cryx (pSkarre vs pSeverius), Circle (eKaya vs eKreoss), Legion (eVayl vs pSeverius) and Khador (eVlad vs eKreoss).
All the games were very close, but ultimately the will of Menoth was too strong and I walked away with 4 straight wins and 1st place! Not that shabby for the first tournament outing!
Next year I plan to blog more about the tournament exploits of my Menoth and hopefully the rest of Team MfM/Kernow Machine as well! (in a lot more detail....may even take some pics ;))


Ive not had a great deal of time to paint recently, but have managed to get the first Warjack done!
Really enjoyed painting this guy, I'm noticing a theme here with the Menoth! Currently on the table we have Rhoven and co, soon to be joined by....... THE JUDICATOR! It performed so well at the tournament I decided to get it done straight away!
Take it easy!
