Well, looks like I'll be playing again next week, and I was thinking of taking
my new DoW army instead of dark Elves. I may be facing a DoW pirates list
but I my opponent can field pretty much any army (even snotlings) apart
from chaos beasts/mortals. He tends to build fluffy lists rather than Rock-hard
ones, but he does have access to chaos dwarves!
I'm just looking for a little inspiration as to what to put in my list.
I've decided on
General on a horse
20 pikemen (maybe use them as an RoR)
20 norse berserkers
10 Vesperos vendetta
4 or 5 ogres (either Great Weapons, or Golfag's unit)
1 or 2 units of Heavy Cav
1 or 2 units of light Cav
1 or 2 units of duellists.
Total so far comes to around 1500 points.
I'm trying to decide what else to put in.
I've got access to a few xbowmen, a whole bunch of dwarves (including the
RoR pirates) and a couple of cannon.
Not sure whether to add another wizard or a hero on a pegasus.
What do you guys reckon?
This is a great list, I would just recommend some xbowmen and a cannon, but not a ROR one, it is marginal methinks.Originally Posted by Spon
ROR pirates are great I'm surprised that nobody uses it, the army is good as it is. Light Cavalry are the best DOW unit in my opinion so use a couple of units.
"Well... that hurt" - Vampire Jon Skellan (Mannfred's right hand man) after being beaten up, falling down an underground waterfall and being impaled by a stalactite.
Thanks for that, I'm leaning towards adding another battle mage - 2 units
of light cav will hopefully be enough for any march blocking, so I'm not sure
I need a flying hero.
I've only got 1 unit of xbowmen painted up , but I could proxy another unit
(I have "n" dark elf xbow warriors!). I don't want to go too missile heavy,
but I think 1 unit isn't quite enough. I suppose I could go for a unit of
dwarf xbows, but I reckon they would either get used as ranked unit (and so
have wasted points on xbows) or sit in a long line and get beaten if they get
into combat (in which case I migh as well use human xbowmen).
I'll post my final list in the army list section.
You have a pretty solid infantry list so far. I have a few suggestions and a few questions:
I'd suggest adding the dwarves, you have a decent infantry base and dwarves will improve this strength. My opponents hate the dwarves more than the pikes. I'd also field no more than 4 ogres, too many points in one place for this infantry list. You'll have trouble getting them all into combat. I think the second mage is a good idea. I'd also recommend the cannon. I think 1 unit of x-bows is enough, you already have a buncha stuff that doesn't like cc much (duellists, light cav) and x-bows are alright, but not great.
How are your duellists equipped? How bout the Norse marauders? If they are flankers, I'd shrink the unit.
What do you plan to use Vesperro for? If you field him, do you really need more units of duellists?
Thanks for the reply, the list isn't finished yet, I'm playing tonight and should get some feedback from that.
I'm using great weapons on my norse marauders. They're there to generate rank bonus
as well as wounds, so I don't want to make the unit smaller.
I'm using 4 ogres with great weapons including a champion.
The duellists are armed with pistols, as that seems the "hardest" option (until the 7th ed
change they're actually quite hard in the first round of any combat).
I'm using Vesperro because I've got him! He's there (like my duellists) to screen my
infantry while they advance. I know for the same points I could have a unit of duellists AND
a unit of xbowmen, but I'll give him a whirl and see if he's worth it.
I'll try to post the result of the battle tomorrow. Wish me luck!
Moved to DoW army lists.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
