Hi all i Have an upcoming game against Empire army that is very shooty, The opponents army has 40 handgunners,2 cannons,2 hellstorm rockets,20 great swords and a large cavalry unit with lots of characters including Karl Franz, Ludwig and Kurt Hellborn finnaly a Steam Tank.
Just a quick note suggestions for White lions will be ignored as i have never liked the units as i just dont like them plain and simple.
Vambraces of Defence
Banner of the World Dragon
Seerstaff of Saphery
Standard of Balance
20 Phoenix Guard
Banner of Sorcery
10 Dragon Princes
Banner of Ellyrion
10 Shadow Warriors
Total 3985 i think just about writing this army lists without my army book
Thanks in advance
Thanks for your input Sturen
i like Tyrion and Teclis as i think it gives the army a bit of character also yes tyrion will go in the unit of dragon princes
I gave the archmage VoD to give him an armour save but if u think i should change i will
My BSB banner is on foot and will either go with the swordmasters or the PG's
I like swordmasters but if u think that WL's will be better ill try them in a list which ill repost when i got time
to be honest with everyone i only have 4 BBT's but what does everyone think to eagles
Like i said i will repost a new army list but im so busy might be a while
The reason that VoD is pointless on an archmage is you pay at least 25 points of it's cost for the reroll to armor saves, your archmage has no armor save to reroll. Just give him a build with an arcane item like silver wand and then some scrolls/powerstones/RoF ect.
Definetly put the BSB in the PG, if SMs need static CR they've already lost whilst if PG don't have static CR then they've lost
Don't use WL if you dislike them, but a block of SMs are going to eat so many bullets it won't even be funny. You could either use small units of 5-6 DPs or small units of 7ish SM. Small units will split fire, your block can get hit by a cannonball and lose half the unit Against the small units cannons have limited potential. He can't kill all your units with his gunline so make one unit scarier (a large unit of SM, around 14) but have a lot of smaller units, he will focus on the big unit, that's marching toward his stank. And ignore the smaller units, who're marching towards his gunline He has a choice of shoot the big unit and his gunline gets eaten, or shoot the small units and his stank gets eatne xD DPs are better though, they can take the shots from the small arms fire and take relatively few casulties. Does that make sense? xD
As for rares, 4 RBT and 4 eagles is what I'd take. The eagles can hunt down war machines and the bolt throwers can get the stank.
I've learnt so much from my mistakes...
I'm thinking of making a few more!
