Journeyman League Week 3

I forgot to make a post for week 2 of my Journeyman league progress, so this one will count for both. Last week I got to add 4 points to my army, increasing it from 11 to 15 points. My main problems had been my inability to get across the field unmolested and gain first strike, and my lack of a semi-disposable light warbeast. I attempted to address these shortcomings by adding a Bull Snapper (3 points, has Spiny Growth) and the Swamp Gobber Bellows Crew (1 point, 5″ cloud template).

Here’s the new list:

Blindwater Congregation 15+6 points, 5 models

Calaban the Grave Walker +6 points

  • Blackhide Wrastler 9 points
  • Ironback Spitter 8 points
  • Bull Snapper 3 points

Swamp Gobber Bellows Crew 1 point

Additional Rules

Deploy 2 3″ shallow waters.

I got mixed results with this. I still lost basically every game (we tie-broke one in my favor when we ran out of time due to the store closing), but they were generally a lot closer. Trying to move all the way up the field under cover of the cloud effect was incredibly frustratingly slow, however.


For week 3, we added 10 more points, coming to a total of 25. I knew I wanted to add the full 5-man Gatorman Posse for 9 points, which left me with an awkward 1 point gap. My only 1 point options are another unit of Swamp Gobbers or a Feralgeist. While two 5″ clouds might be good, I don’t really want to double up on a unit when I’d probably be dropping it again at a higher points level. As for the Feralgeist, I’ve not given it a lot of thought, as I really only hear bad things about them from other people. Not liking either of those two choices, I instead dropped the Gobbers and added a 2 point Croak Hunter. He’s a fairly squishy frog-man solo, but has the skills necessary to threaten a key model of the enemy’s.

Updated list:

Blindwater Congregation 25+6 points, 10 models

Calaban the Grave Walker +6 points

  • Blackhide Wrastler 9 points
  • Ironback Spitter 8 points
  • Bull Snapper 3 points

Croak Hunter 2 points

5 Gatorman Posse 9 points

Additional Rules

Deploy 2 3″ shallow waters.

I’ve only played one game with this list so far, which I won. It was a relatively unusual victory, however, with Calaban killing Xerxis in melee combat. Overall, though, the list (and I) performed acceptably, despite the Posse being killed to the man with frightening efficiency.
