After many iterations, I think I'm closing in on a tournament build. The main ideas are pIrusk, Black Ivan, Greylords, and Winter Guard. With Superiority and a Ternion cloud, Ivan is DEF 17 against shooting, plus any missed shots will trigger Dodge and let him move around (though not Bulldoze). I don't need to say much more about the WGI Deathstar, but I will anyway: the Ternion cloud bumps them to DEF 20 against shooting. This still doesn't help with their big weakness (templates), but it's still nice to have. The Greylords also have a magic spray for Incorporeal and other things that need magic attacks. The rest is still up for debate, but currently has the Great Bears, eEiryss, Widowmakers, and probably some other stuff. With some things decided, I'm using this list as the list I paint towards. The good news is I have all the pieces primed and ready for painting. The bad news is only the Winter Guard are actually painted, and then it's just the unit with no UA or WAs. It's a bit of a hill to climb, but settling on which particular hill will help me direct my steps towards a particular goal and (eventually) reach it. I'm trying to tell myself that if I can get it painted before the Warstore's Black Friday sale gets going then I'll fill out the pButcher theme list (and maybe some Kayazys) with that sale, but that's very optimistic. Once I get things firmed up more then perhaps I'll break it down into more manageable goals.
