Interesting and fun list. Been toying with the idea to try Hellebron myself. Its is though a very rock, paper scisser list. Win big against som armies and loos big against another. I suspect HE will be hard due to their asf - taking down Hellebron fast. I also think a shooty and warmashine heavy arm...

If you swap the we with BG and the COK unit with another warrior block + 2x5 harpies you will get the standard DE cheese that people hate.

20 We with witchbrew not so good annymore. Take maby 14, 7 wide no command ( or maby flaming banner for hunting regen things like trolls )

light on warrriors, 24 is not enough

SS with no ward save ? Risky, but good luck

Otherwise pretty standard list and should be ok.

The list`s beeing so similar and not knowing who the most skillful player is makes it really hard to tell, but I put my 10c on Hansleonard.

Might be a fun list, but not competitive. First, lord equipment is way off. DL needs ward save or regen+fire protection. Lv4 needs dagger or DSC ( +1 power dice ) and no weapons. Black amulet on SS is viable - but not on your DL. Core choise is abit off to. Usually 2x30 warriors and maby a few less ...

Grz on the win, but as for your opponent conseeding, you can`t really blame him if you look at the picture after roundt 3. IG1 will brake from combat with BG and Hydra. Even if they hold for a round they got no game really since BG is stuborn and they only hit on 5`s. The IG2 unit wil then be hunted...

The weakness of WOC is they are relatively slow. If he gets a huge chosen unit to 4+ ward save or even better( with 2 warchrines ) you might aswell just avoid it and throw cheap units at it. But othewise the combined charge of 40 warroirs and a DL on dragon with Black Dragon egg will most likely bra...

I assume you intend to go to Challenge in Oslo ? My advice would be to adjust your list abit : 2x6 shades in stead of 2x10. The additional is often wasted because they will loose combat just as fast with 10 as with 6 and and the shooting is reduntand cuz the target is dead. 2x30 warriors - best unit...

The "tactic" described would indeed be a huge waste of time in a tournament. Its an obvious exploit of the rules. A still cheep but more common use is the "boxing in" tactics with harpies. Two units of harpies positioned on each side of a big block ( especially nice against a hug...

Callison`s right. Death hag with asf banner gets killed pretty fast and gives yor opponent easy points. So just get more execs instead. But be prepared for the usual tactics against exec death star. Redirecting, avoiding and massive shooting and magic against it. Thats why I stopped using them.
