Welcome to Librarium Online!
This weekend on sunday im going to be playing a 4 way with my local league. Im going to be running this list below against warriors of chaos, dark elves, high elves.
-the high elves army will be lots of sword masters and dragon knights and probably some mages with a dragon mage.
-the warriors army will be straight khorne with 2-3 chariots a hell cannon and 3 or so units of khorne warriors and i think he said 2 or 3 nurgle wizards.
-the dark elves list will most likely consist of a war hydra, noble on a manticore (cant think of their name), 1 or 2 units of cold one riders, 2-3 units of dark riders and 2 wizards
as from my description most of the people I play with are power gamers and They all are really good players been playing since 5 edition. My problem is my list is my mind is not going to compare to their lists,,it would if we were playing one on one but im really worried considering the table is going to be a square one with all equal sides and my army just seems underpar compared to what they are going to bring. im mostly worried about them sniping my engine because of the nurgle wizards and the dark elves will probably bring lore of iron with them
RULES: --all magic targeting your units you must dispell, all other magic can be openly dispelled by anyone, but only one attempt per spell.--you are not allowed to capture standards other the battle standard--table quarters are worth 300 points if you are able to clear a whole corner then you deserve it--you must deal the last wound to a unit to gain victory points for it or be the cause of it panicing off the board or fleeing to gain victory points
MY ARMY LIST:
LV2 priest on engine 435
-plaque of topek
LV2 priest 150
-rod of the storm
10 skink skirmishers 70
10 skink skirmishers 70
3 razordons 4 handlers 240 (i borrowed these from a buddy)
20 warriors 258
spears mus standard
5 kroxigors 275 1498 points
my idea for the battle is use the razordons and skinks to keep my flanks clear of dark riders and dark steed riding mages away. the skinks are almost completly for shielding units from nasty mages and heavy shooting from the dark elves and high elves. the razordons are going to be a dont come in this are kind of unit..they will be easy dismantled but because of our you have to deal the last wound and not many people will charge them i feel safe with them being able to make up their points. the big block of warriors will provide a nice chunk of points for me army that my opponants will have a hard time acquiring because of flanking kroxigors and the engine. I tried to do heavy magic for the defense and hopefully get some offense with my engine blast a couple units. the big unit of kroxigors is there to provide some smashing capability with lots of wounds that a unit of sarus cal would not provide, and i brought the rod of the storm along to pop a unit of dark riders or cold one riders or dragon knights or whatever actualy lol. and last but not least I had to bring the engine just for those big messes of fighting where i can hopefully charge in and activate the damage ability and hopefully kill a lot, also with the plaque I hope get the comet of casandora so I drop in board center and roll of it on every other players turn could get nasty but this unit will also be my biggest dis-advantage because of easy sniping but in other words i can activate the 5 up ward save against shooting so my army should have good coverage there.
ALL INPUT IM LOOKING FORWARD TO PLEASE TELL EXPERIENCE AGAINST THESE ARMYS IVE POSTED AND HOPING TO READ ABOUT CHANGES I COULD PUT IN MY ARMY TO SURVIVE AND WIN BETTER PLEASE AND THANKS
I am a little late to this post. How did you game go?
I think you had a viable list. 1 more kroxigor than I would have taken, but other than that, the list looked good.
Hope you won,
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
lol I got really lucky and came in second.
My engine priest got the comet of casandora and I also got the first turn, so first turn I dropped the comet in the center of the dark elves army. on his first turn the comet also went off hitting everyone of his units. I destroyed one dark rider unit and one mage and a couple of wounds on a cold rider unit.
the rest of the game was just spell battles and my skinks/razordons fending off fast calvary while my warriors sat in a tar pit with my kroxigors for like 3 turns. the whole khorne army was wiped off the board by spells and the dark elf manticore. the whole high elf army was wiped off too. from a mixture of my engine charging into the side of their swordmaster and then over running into another unit and blasting them away too on turn three I think.
at the end of turn six I still had my unit of razordons and my priest on the engine ( the engine surive because i flank plowed through the high elf army and was sitting in a corner away from the whole battle for turn 4,5 and 6.) My kroxigors were wiped off the board on turn 5 after they sat in combat for 3 turns with the warriors. the saurus warriors were run down by the dark elf with the manticore because he overran into them in their flank. My skink priest with the dispell scroll was shot down by dark riders on turn two after he used his rod and got dispelled
The dark elves won with their noble on a manticore who got nearly 900 points himself...he ate a new unit every turn. at the end of the game he still had a unit of dark riders and still had a mage on a dark steed and still had his noble on the manticore.
