Great report, I really enjoyed it.

One final point you made was that Beasts didn't work as well for you. I would agree that with most of your punch coming from an executioner horde, that Beasts isn't ideal. However, Beasts is a great lore, especially when including the amount of Warlocks you have. Early game, Warlocks are able to supplement the lore's lack of a real magic missile and also are a fantastic target for Wildform. Try to cast a Soulblight from the Warlocks to draw out dice, and now you have a Wildform, which is 95% of the time slightly better assuming they're in combat or about to be shot at by something less than a cannon.

Also, Curse of Anraheir and Amber Spear are fantastic spells that in many situations are must stops, allowing you to get Wildform/Doombolt off.

Overall though, give Metal a try. I think that lore will be fantastic for your army.

Good points on Beasts. I think I rolled up Flock of Doom, Curse, Pelt, and Savage Beast, so I ended up dropping Pelt for Wildform. Flock was nice for skinks and curse helped stop some of his units from moving. I think I had some lower dice magic phases that game, so I couldn't get too many spells through, which might be why I found beasts to be unhelpful. Spear would have really been good to have considering he had 2 lone cold one characters and 2 monsters.

Metal is a great option. I bring it all the time on my daemons, which is why I didn't bring it here. But you're right, it would have fit really well. Searing doom/hounds would have destroyed those monsters/characters with 2+ and 3+ saves, enchanted blades is great on witches since they really struggle with armor, and 5+ scaly skin makes executioners a lot more durable. Next time I play the list, I might just go with metal.

And thanks for watching!
