Hey my title rhymes! So, I realized my issue playing my Cryx thus far: I did what I should not have done and thats jump beyond the battlebox quickly. I find myself trying to figure out what I should be doing with all my bits, and even thinking about it in theory is confusing me.
Arc nodes are very new to me you see.
That and the idea of speed, casting ability, and denial is all new to me. I mean I used to play pButcher! All he did was walk up and hit things. Playing pDenny or pGaspy is WAY WAY different. And its hard to wrap my head around.
I should stick to small 15 point games.
Is pGaspy a good caster for a newbie Cryx player? He seems a bit too general for me to really get a grip on. I wanted that, but now I am not sure I can handle it.
I do like the Bloodgorgers though. I like guys with gang who get up to MAT 8 PS 13 with 2 attacks, and can shoot forward 10 inches on a charge vs living (HI HORDES!). But I think pDenny would support them better then pGaspy honestly. She can debuff things HARD, but pGaspy doesn’t really do much unless I can get Parasite on something.
I did consider pSkarre though. Her feat would be BRUTAL with them. And they would be a good target for the “Skarre Bomb” at ARM 15 base. Maybe I should proxy her at 15 points. Something like this? (use pDenny for Skarre)
Pirate Queen Skarre
– Skarlock Thrall
Would that work at a low point level? I feel kind of bad having to possibly Sac my Bloodgorgers for either Focus or a Bomb, but they would be there if need be. I also get a decent heavy in the Reaper, my Skarlock to cast my Ritual Sacrifice, and I have an Arc Node just in case (and both my jacks have Sustained Attack!)
Does the focus you gain from Ritual Sacrifice stay if you don’t use it all or do you always reset to normal max focus at the start of your turn? I assume it stays during your opponents turn.
Should I try pSkarre, or should I stick to a 15 point pDenny list to get the hang of her?
