For a barbarian only list I would make sure to have a troop or two of Axemen, go after the archers with rush attack. If I know I need to hunt down archers I would probably include a musician. Also make use of Nanok.

 

Any particular archers you are having issues with?

 

 

That would be Venomspite, he has poison and sniper.

Yeah Charge Venomspite he is squishy.  Use Nadezhda if he is really problematic to stun him and kill him before he can become a nuisance. Use the sergeant with rush after stunning him and kill him without a whimper.  Go for overkill Use Gorak and 2 axemen to charge with a musician and have a totem and a magic weapon, Gorak will have 5 base MAV, +1 for totem, +1 for weapon, +1 Rage, +1 for support.  You auto hit and cleave on 4's, and your axemen will hit on 4's which is a 70% chance.  You will take a round of fire but if you throw some spear throwers out in front a few inches you might even get a ranged counter attack and block line of sight.  Then on your follow up turn you might just have some ranged support yourself.

Also you can use Nadezhda to dominate someone to squish Venomspite. I totally forgot about her, and shouldn't have because she is in almost all of my Icingstead lists. I consider her one of the best casters in the game.

 

Thanks, for feed back. I was going to do that in one of my games but she got killed, before I do it.

Under the Barbarians Doctrine, it says this, Barbarian Horde: If the entire Army is Human, all models gain 3" movement bonus during a Charge Action instead of 2", Leader and Elite models with the Tough SA gain a +1 bonus to their Tough checks, any number of Sergeants may be fielded without fielding a Captain or a Warlord, and two "Kaya the Reaper" models may be fielded per 1000 points. So! I take it that I can't take any of the Handmaiden of Keskura, or Winter Wolf and the Ice Toad, Frost Wyrm?
