    My first Cryx list

    This is what I had in mind for my first Cryx list.
    I base it mostly on the models I like, but also have an underlying idea of tactics. As I don't know the rules that good I would like som advice and C&C on how this will run.


    Mr_Waynes Cryx list:

    Type of list: GRAND MELEE

    Iron Lich Asphyxious (FA C): WJ +6

    1 Corruptor (FA U): PC 8
    2 Reaper (FA U): PC 14
    1 Slayer (FA U): PC 6

    3 Death Rippers (FA U): PC 12
    6 Defilers (FA U): PC 30

    2 Necrotech + 1 Scrap Thrall (FA 3): PC 2
    2 Scrap Thralls (FA 3): PC 2

    3 Mechanithrall units (FA 3): PC 9
    3 Brute Thralls (FA 3): PC 3

    Grand Total: PC 80


    Ideas behind the list:
    I base the model choices mainly on dead corpses that have been mechanically modified and given unlife (Iron Lich, Necrotech, Scrap Thralls and Mechanithralls). No ghosts and stuff and absolutely no living creatures. The mechanical theme is strengthened with the 'jacks. If I include another Warcaster it would probably be Mortenebra and Deryliss, more for theme than obvious tactics (strange that they only have WJ +4, as they are Necrotechs), and also add Cankerworm in Asphyxious battlegroup (cool model and fun rules).

    Gaming wise the Mechanithralls will advance as fast as possible straight forward enemy formations and force the opponent to target them. This will give me time to adress enemy 'jacks and high priority targets with my own 'jacks as I see fit.

    I'll use the Reaper to drag enemy warjacks so that they can be dealt with accordingly by my Reaper and the two Slayers. They will be protected from interruption by the Deathrippers who will stand in the way of enemy 'jacks coming to aid (and die horribly doing so).

    Some Defiler spam and the Corruptor takes care of infantry nicely. If the enemy is light in infantry the fast Defilers will soften up the mechanical elements before my helljacks finishes off.

    Is this doable in Mk II? Is it too much plans and not enough "go for the juggular"?
    All advice needed.

    Iron Lich Asphyxious (FA C): WJ +6

    1 Corruptor (FA U): PC 8
    The new corruptor is a touch hit and miss. I've boosted it and slaughtered infantry, but then failed to scratch paint on larger jacks. against other cryx, you'll be crying at the lack of uses for its cost.

    2 Reaper (FA U): PC 14
    2 reapers? unless your going for a crazy dragging straight to your heavy hitters, you wont need that many jacks with drag potental, since a boost to damage is almost required for other heavy jacks

    1 Slayer (FA U): PC 6
    Good old slayer... you may want to chance a seether if you cut off one of your other heavies... they are less focus intensive than any other jack.

    3 Death Rippers (FA U): PC 12
    6 Defilers (FA U): PC 30

    WAT? why would you need 7 bonejacks at even 100 points? i might consider it with the coven, but gaspy doesnt need anywhere near that many.

    2 Necrotech + 1 Scrap Thrall (FA 3): PC 2
    2 Scrap Thralls (FA 3): PC 2
    An old cryx staple, now with the ability to repair jacks... but if you are taking damage, you are unlikely to get the chance to repair, and trust me, all cryx opponents know how to beat scrap thralls nowadays.

    3 Mechanithrall units (FA 3): PC 9
    3 Brute Thralls (FA 3): PC 3


    Thats a generally solid list. You have your scrap thralls, your bonejacks, your heavies all ready for MKII.
    There is one problem though. Focus.

    You have 7 focus a turn, to be spent on jacks and spells. The defiler is currently the best bonejack out there, so if your playing a 50 point game, you'll be taking a few of those, but your also going to want a hard hitter, such as the slayer or reaper. And you dont have the focus to spread round, at all. You might want to consider taking a skarlock so your focus can be stretched a little further, or the new Warwitch siren.

    Hehe... I think you counted wrong. There's not 7 bonejacks. There's 9 of them. How many would you take? All Defilers, or a mix.

    What would you recomend?
    More Necrotechs and infantry, less bonejacks?
    I'll maybe switch the Reaper for another Slayer. And even change the Corruptor for a Seether. Dont know yet. This will be my forst list so I don't want to purchase anything I won't use much.

    What's your take on additional Warcasters if you take my army theme into consideration?

    What tactics are favourable with Asphyxious and 'jack heavy list?

    I'm going to do you the biggest favour and tell you to take what you love.

    My first army i took goreshade (only ever good as a second caster), 3 defilers (not worth the points), drudge slaves (WTF is the point?) and a cankerworm (way too many rules and far too average).

    as a relatively new player (2-3 years) your army looks like something out of some handbook. as a player of 4 games every 2 weeks for 2 to 3 years, your army begets a groan as its no brainer.

    you played any full games yet?

    Thank's for the advice. I've up until now only taken models I like into consideration. I'll just continue to do that.

    Nope, none played. I'll wait until I have any models.
