Hi, I'm trying to decide what army to play and the HE Seapatrol looks pretty cool, so I was wondering if there are any Sea Lords that would recommend this army.
they are awesome just when you get that first voley target one unit and shoot every thing you have at it untill its destroyed
I would advise against it for 2 reasons.
1) The rumor is that all storms of chaos lists will soon be banned.
2) The list is very unbalanced and totally un tested when they made it.
At under 2000 points it's very weak. You pay huge amount of points for hardly any benefits.
At over 2000 points you can take the Sealord and then the benefits (pregame shooting phase) kick in.
An average seaguard list will have 4 RTB's and some 80+ lothern seaguard and sea rangers.
This means that if you get the first turn you will have fired 160+ bow shots and 48 bolt thrower bolts before your opponent even got a turn. And half of those are without shooting restrictions or modifiers. That does not make for fun games.
The best example I can give on how unbalanced the list is to look at the comp systems tourneys use. In it they give this list a better comp score if you take a Merwyrm instead of 2 of your RTB's. A Merwyrm is a dragon without a rider or wings. So this is the only list that improves your comp score by taking a dragon like creature.
Here as well, Sylv. is right.
IMHO the seaguard list is "cheese" especially when of 2k and higher.
The pregame shooting sounds great but in the end you will just stand there and shoot.
HE are for me a challange. They have awsome capabilities but they require some tactical thinking.
And the seaguard list robs you're elves from this IMO.
Hope it helps
