Absylonia has been a lot of fun. I've pretty much only been playing her tier list which is pretty different. It's taught me how to get the most out of Shepherds, since with no troops to speak of your beasts have to do all the work. Absylonia only has 6 fury so that's a 12" bubble that your beasts can force in, so you have to learn how to use the range extension abilities of the Shepherds. In general it's solid, and can be downright mean if you go first. The biggest problem is upkeep hate, which negates Absylonia's chief strength, her great upkeep spells.
