Andy and Vishal get a look at Grand Exemplar Kreoss from Protectorate of Menoth and show you just how cool his feat is, and how just to use it in your games of Warmachine.
Thats quite a nasty feat he has there! I’ll have to go find the menoth book to see what other insanity they can pull off
pKreoss’ feat is knock down all enemy in control area, nice when you have a ranged army My favourite is eFeora’s, get one focus for each person suffering fire in control and you can reallocate as many of the fire effects as you want, awesome for guaranteeing number superiority if she’s in the right list.
eKreos’ feat can be hard to set up assasination as he’s only SPD5, but the autohit lasts for one round so you could run guys up to a unit that needs to reposition and make them eat the free-strikes. It has far more uses than just finishing the caster, which is it’s big strength
Holy crap. I have never played against eKreoss in the past – and this video makes me think, that I should not play against him in the near future (probably eKaya can finish him, before he uses his feat )
That is pretty sick. I haven’t played against eKreoss before. That is a heck of a gnasty ability / feat combo. I play Khador vs. Retribution on occasion and it’s one thing to get armor piercing on range. It’s another to get it on a melee figure that may as well be a font of infinite damage. Even if the Butcher hadn’t bee right there he could easily have blown away a heavy Khador Jack in a couple of swings.
I played against him two weeks ago with eKaya for two times. Both games I managed to get a really good alpha strike and thought I might win it. But each game I made a big mistake afterwards and got to feel the hurt of Kreoss’ feat. Both games I lost. I don’t like eKreoss!
As someone who’s primary caster is the mighty Grand Exemplar, he loves things that can do tons of melee damage with extreme ease. Any Exemplar model, Avatar, Fire of Salvation, Reckoner, Daughters, and Temple Flameguard all qualify. Though one thing to note: for the attacks to auto-hit, your opponent’s models have to be in his control range. Friendlies get the second attack while in his control, so it’s a two-part feat. On feat turns, I’ve done lots of damage, from infantry bricks suddenly disappearing to an entire army of Legion Warbeasts disappearing in a chorus of slices. The easiest way to summarize is this: eKreoss’ feat turns Exemplar squads into the equivalent of two Heavy warjacks a team, or a light in the case of the Errants.
eKreoss is good, but he basically exists for his feat. Don’t get me wrong, he is my 2nd favourite warcaster, but I like eFeora better… FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!!
I have faced him in a 2 warcaster game where i was using eButcher and pSorscha with his feat he killed the butcher, one of his units finished off a weakened Juggernaut, a light jack, loaded with focus from their second caster, and a weaker unit scraped a Destroyer. I was left with a Devastator that was on its last legs, pSorscha, Widowmakers, and some winterguard and some Doom Reavers, and a second Jugger with only one damage box taken out.
