Khador 2013 Part 14 - Support Andrej

So, today's issue of Khador 2013 will deal with the prime Khadoran douchebag. No, that is not Queen Vanar. No, it is neither the Greylords that make more fellblades in order for more Doom Reavers. Zerkova's pretty douchy in attitude, but she has been covered. No, the Butcher is not a douche, he's... he's sticking to his ideals even closer than to his enemies. Irusk? I admit he's got attitude, but that's still off.

We're talking Andrej Malakov today. God, how I loathe this character. I still wish PP would've killed him instead of giving him a model. I know that I do not hide my disdain for this guy (much like I didn't do it on Dice Rage Live #11), but sadly, I have to admit, he does give us options. And they're not that bad.

So today we'll take a very very brief look at Andrej's stat card - because the guy likes being looked at, and you should not reinforce bad habits - and we'll go right ahead and look for a few plausible choices for him, which Warjacks to run, which 'Caster to assign to, and Sucker! targets worth the mention.

Khador 2013 - Part 13 "Feats"

I didn't expect this either.
I must admit, I was at a loss for topics to cover. Warcaster reviews, NSA-style, are only fun for a time. Then you'd want something different to spice things up - and to prove you're a good article writer.

After a long pondering, I thought - why don't we talk about Feats this time? You know, those game-state altering abilities that make you spit a thick stream of bile (Temporal Shift, mostly), make you go "Oh... I didn't expect that to work out so strongly" (Death Harvest or Menoth's Wrath), or just simply flip your battle strategy the freaking bird (Landslide or Web of Shadows).

I'll talk about how I classify/categorise feats, and then we'll take a look at Khador's feats accordingly. This article may end up rather short, because I'm not going to explain how to use each feat best. Also, I'm not attempting to "rank" feats according to the "strength" - this is only about grouping them together based on similarities.

And yes, I am going to make you scrounge through your books or cards again - because I'm not going to say who's feat it is, but actually use the name. ;-)
