Be great to have a full illustrated report.

Glotkin casts vortex, passes over witch elves, killing 3 as I make around 20 4+ ward saves :shock:
Your opponent sure hated that.

Phew, that game could easily have gone the other way if his vortex spells had done more work. You played the game as it had to be played, though. Shoot as much as you can and then unleash the witch elves into a killing frenzy as soon as the enemy gets close enough.

Nice report.

In all the official GW pics, Glottkins' base is wider than it is deep -- looks like your opponent has the base oriented the wrong way.

If the base was supposed to be wider that means my witch elves would have had more in base contact to attack

Oh well, I'll have to let the guy know

Thanks for the replies :)

Not sure how it should be mounted on that base because in the actual Glotkin kit the assembly instructions have him mounted they way your opponent has him mounted.
Cheers,

Exactly. Makes him much more vulnerable to even low strength attacks since he has to face so many more of them.
