Ok, here's the list I used yesterday in a tournament. I even managed to walk away with first place, zero losses and zero ties. I wanted to post it earlier, but there are folks in the tournament that come by the boards here, and I didn't want to let them see it. Suggestions are always welcome as usual.
Cohort: Striking Eagle- Sacred Host of Quetzl
Blessings of Sotek, Itzl, Quetzl
Revered Sword of Tzunki
Aura of Quetzl
Army total- 2145 pts
i really like the list. its quite simular to my combat list. though i have som comments:
1. i would never have my saurus in such big units.
2. and i would never use terradons in such big units.
otherwise, i think, its a really nice list.
I actually have good reasons for them both.
1.) When you go into battle, you have to assume losses, in other words, assign "bait". The saurus scared people in that big block, and it drew a lot of fire. So much in fact that it generally lived at the end of the battle because of the people focusing on it. They ignored everything else, and by the time they realized it, it was too late for them. Also, saurus at even half strength of this unit will do well in combat.
2.) The terradons in that size of unit are a scare factor. They draw the attention of people, but they're took quick to be mashed in a single round unless your careless. The first game I played was against Vampire Counts. The terradons charged into the front rank of some grave guard, killed the necromancer that was in the unit with the guard, suffered only one wound on retaliation and then did a hit and run move to get out of combat. WS 3 with 3 strength 4 attacks will kill even opponents in heavy armor, and when your troops auto rally from the hit-and-run, you simply rinse, wash, repeat.
The terradon unit did more damage, psychological and physical, during the tournament than my 8 strong unit of saurus cavalry could ever hope for.
thats nice tactics! i havent got any other comments. i like the list
Yeah this lists looks really cool, it doesn't sound like you need any help from us!
Yeah i also think terradons are great in big units.
How well did your Kroxigor do in the tourney? Because i'm still undecided on these guys
Myself I prefer Saurus in smaller units, but you have logic too in this large a unit.
Following on your fear strategy, have you considered taking a Stegadon? Adding a Steg to the already impressive list of frightening targets could make it too much for some...
The only game in which I lost a full unit of kroxigors was against an empire player. He had a unit of cavalry with his general and BSB in it that ate them alive. However, I had positioned that unit on the far right hand side of the table, and by then I had closed up my left flank with certainty. Every other game, even against a full slayer army, the kroxigors were at least still on the table with half strength.
I did indeed consider a stegadon, but 1.) I wanted to minimize the number of large targets the enemies had to shoot at and 2.) I feel the salamanders are more effecient at killing for the points value. My thoughts were confirmed on this when in single round of shooting, the salamanders rolled 10, 10, 6 and wiped out a full unit of 18 troll slayers.
Please don't misunderstand me. I appreciate the stegadon, but I prefer saving him for games of 3k or more, along with my saurus cavalry.
