Welcome to Librarium Online!
been playin GW games for a few years now and wanted a change of pace so i picked up warmachine and chose Cryx. I have not actually started playing yet but just wanted to mess around with some lists. Here is one that is based off of using my warcasters magic to its full advantage (w/ arc nodes etc.)
if i am totally off on what i should have in a 500 pt list please let me know as i have no experience in warmachine ever.
Warcaser warwitch Deneghra-76pts
Banethrall w/ leader- 82 pts
2 necrotechs-36 pts
2 Bonejack defilers- 45 pts
1 helljack reaper-113 pts
1 helljack slayer-110 pts
any tips,comments or changes are greatly appreciated.
Well... Dirty D needs lots o'bonejacks to be effective. Most, when playing Dirty D, use her as an assassination force. I would go for atleast 5 bonejacks, more if you can. Pistol Wraiths are really good with her.
2 Pistol Wraiths are a MUST, as well as Skarlock (omg free focus/spells).
Drop the Reaper - he's worthless IMO.
Again, go for assassination. FYI, Deneghra sucks ass in melee against most other casters, so try to stay away from them. Work on denying, harassing, and going for the kill when they least expect it.
"And whoever wants to be a creator in good and evil, must first be an annihilator and break values. Thus the highest evil belongs to the greatest goodness: but this is--being creative."

Deneghra needs about 4 arcnodes to assasinate, the rest of the points I would invest in whatever infantry you prefer, and at least 1 heavy jack for versatility.
On Deneghra's feat, she can be a massive melee monster, if you have their caster crippled that is. She effectively becomes MAT 9 P+S17, and her MAT goes to a 12 once you hit your target once. And if they don't have reach and you stay 2" away, they cant even attack you that turn, due to her melee weapon (can't remember the name off the top of my head.)
I have seen Deneghra take on much more than you would ever expect, and win. Such as 2 full squads of Trollkin Champions.
