My reasons for these list/caster choices: I have liked both of these Circle themes, and have wanted to run Kaya3 and Una2 in both of them, to see how well they make use of the army compositions. To be honest, I have really been gunning to try both of them with a Storm Raptor, but after struggling with points allocation, I realized that this particular format does not allow for Gargantuans/Collosals because of the awkward points cut-off. I noted this as a weakness that will need to be addressed for the format, and put my beautiful feathered model to the side.

My anticipation for the event, is that most people have played against their fill of Una2, so my opponents will likely chose Kaya3 for my matches. So, I structured my Devourers Host list to help her clean up infantry and gain significant scenario presence; while the Wild Hunt capitalizes on giving her more beasts to make use of the Hunter field marshal advantage, for some dangerous assassination angles. She will likely bring her heavy-hitters and stones for fury-management if I take her with list B, or the Moonhound to help ranged hitting accuracy for the Tharn in list A.

Should my opponents force my play of Una, I made sure to supply her a healthy band of her favorite feathered beasts, along with either a Pureblood for wraithbane/magic weapons, or the gorax for more punching power/accuracy.

And with this ensemble, I should be able to field some fun, semi-competitive 50-point list combinations--here's to the coming Saturday event--hope to see you all there!
