Ok. I've been thinking of the skill Fend recently. Please help me figure out which team would be best suited for lots of Fend. Dwarves seem ok but I have personal issues about playing with dwarves. I promise that if over half the votes are for dwarves by some vague deadline in my head, then I will make a dwarf team. The obvious downside there is that then there will be one more dwarf team in Fumbbl and that can't be good. Necros are out because I already have a good Necro team.

I've actually never taken Fend myself but I also think that it's a better skill than people give it credit for. This is based on experience from playing against plasmoid's Bretonnian team (it has linemen that start with Fend). Fend is a frustrating skill for the opponent because you can't follow up. Besides stopping the use of PO and Frenzy, Fend makes positioning harder for the opponent and easier for you because your players will have less TZ's on them.

I've voted Amazons. Everybody gets Block - Fend and they're going to be horribly annoying for your opponent.

Actually I have now the urge to get a Amazon Fend team myself. Hope we meet in the box.

Edit: And so, the Hot Zombie Chicks were created... Very Happy

I pick Fend frequently for my Agility Monsters now and it works out very nice and to the frustration of my opponents. But then again, they're dwarves, so nothing new here for you.

I think I would try Amazon > Skaven > Norse.

Looks pretty good for amazons, since they got a decent chance to stay upright but are dodging much less reliable than elves (with Dodge). A lot of blodge/wrodge + fend players looks powerful to me.

Skaven I'd try because I think I'd be annoyed by them beings stuck with their opponents, not being able to use their high MA. I've never played them myself though, only against them.

Norse is quite like dwarves: They start with Block, so Fend might be a nice first skill (along with some utility skills like Kick). With the higher MA they might benefit more from it than dwarves, on the other hand, dwarves need the extra freedom in positioning far more desperately.

Definitely an interesting project.

Oh, Khemri could be interesting as well.

I left out Khemri because the tomb guardians don't have general skill access. But you're right that due to AG2 Fend does open up possibilities.

A team with mostly av7 to make claw useless, and that starts with either block/dodge/wrestle... So zons or norse it is.

I belive the most benefit from fend, in BBox, is for av9 teams. So go Orcs!

I see Orcs got 1 vote! Guess who?!?!?!

Because the big guys can't get Fend, I'd only be using marauders and the renegades. No big guy CP = minmax.

I'm not really looking to minmax this team because you only get to play with the clawpombers at higher TV's.

Edit: Way to contradict myself in such a short space!
