Episode 18: E-mails From the Edge

Episode 18 starts off with a very special announcement! The Runecasters are joining a new network of gamers! Something for all of us to look forward to.
We also get an e-mail from Justin who takes Josh to task on his previous thoughts on spearmen.
Gabe also has a friend who knows the secret to beating the Uthuk Y’llan! Allegedly… maybe. Listen closed because your survival in the deserts of Terrinoth may just depend on it!

  1. File leader at initiative 3 is super helpful versus Uthuk. Spearmen, Reanamites with raven standard, and Oathsworn. Its perfect for them to hang back and guard your ranged units and not get out of position.

  3. Uthuk Manifesto

    Overview
    in General the Uthuk don’t turn well and they don’t Armor up. They only have flexibility from Berserker upgrades and Ravos.

    When you walk up to the table to play Uthuk, Job one is figure out what the Berserkers can do. Then How are you going to get accuracy to stop it.

    2nd you will need to have pre planned combos in your army to kill Ravos.

    Remember Spined Threshers are scary but they are Slower than the rest of the list so don’t waste early attacks on them.

    Generic good ideas against Uthuk.
    Tiny units with tons of upgrades will not get shot down before the get a shot at alpha strike.

    things that shoot on Initiative 6 are good

    Armor is super valuable as long as you kill Ravos.

    MSU shooting with wind Rune and blockers is amazing as long as you knock out aggressive shrieker and Ravos

    Aoe Damage and all the banes Cripple the Uthuk. They can’t waste time rallying. Stun and immobile Hurt them more than any faction.

    Ravos Dies to Softening up with shooting then a alpha strike from a small cavalry unit or character example 2×1 oathsworn with tempered steel and rank discipline. Aliana owns Ravos lol. 2×1 Deathknights with the gauntlet. 2×1 cats upgraded.

    Accuracy is the key to berserkers anything with a shooting attack and blue dice with reroll. Kari is best, then elf archers. Waiqar have to get lucky with archers or use worm melee.

    Run from the Threshers with wind Rune try not to do anything with them until other units are dead.
