We will be playing this quest soon--was reading through. I noticed you could just bring out 4 chaos warriors immediately followed by any other heavy hitting monster. The downside is the heavy hitters move slower. Has anyone thought through optimizing which monsters to bring out first and what order?


Twice in 2 years? Man, that show was a bit of a let down... the writers ruined the show after they ran out of source material. Read the books, so much better and sensical. George RR Martin is a genius for putting all that together; Benioff and Weiss are like Dumb and dumber.

It might be best to send down Goblins and Orcs on the first wave. They can cover the most ground in 1 turn. If you're lucky the skeletons in the middle room can hold off the rest of the heroes long enough for your greenskins to get in. Then you could send down some Chaos Warriors in the 2nd Wave.
However the heroes can go by the Hold the Door strategy and keep you from entering at all, at which point it's best to have a Chaos Warrior lead the charge.
But if you're willing to bend the rules you can send a Giant Wolf down (from the Elf Quest Pack) at the start of the line...

Lol I don't think the giant wolf would be fair at this point.

If I was the Dwarf I would step 2 tiles back to prevent being attacked by many monsters at once in the same turn!
I'd place the Dwarf over the secret door and at his side one hero with diagonal attack (crossbow anyone?) to help while the other 2 complete the quest.

Why not? The heroes should already be maxed out at this point. The heroes aren't expected to fight every monster that comes down the hallway, at this point they're expected to flee.

Because introducing something they haven't even seen at all during a quest like this seems out of place. Do giant wolves even hang out in the deep tunnels of a mountain? I thought they were in the ice and snow.

No actually, they don't feature in the Frozen Horror quest pack at all(which takes place in the ice and snow), they're from the Elf Quest Pack, which is more marshy (or so i gather from the one quest with the quick sand).
For me, if the heroes are doing well enough, I'd surprise them with something they wouldn't expect.
But I guess they wouldn't be expecting a whole army in the first place...
