    Escalation Tournament Lists: 2000, 2400, 3000

    So, we're having a tourney that escalates from 2400 to 3000 points and requires 3 lists: 2000, 2400, 3000. Additional points will be added for achieving the list-building feat of including your entire 2000 point army (UNCHANGED) in each of the 2400 and 3000 point lists. Here's my shot at it. Our tourneys also allow some Storm of Magic monsters to be taken out of Rare as a part of the army, so there will be lots of monsters running around. Our tourneys also have lots of objectives. To keep it simple, I've excluded most Storm monsters from my list building, but I always take a few chaff units like Sabretusks and Unicorns, since they are great uber cheap chaff and can move REALLY fast and objective/warmachine/chaff hunt. I know it's a lot to consider, but thoughts?

    2000

    Wizard Lord
    Lvl 4 Life (with Greatswords, buffs unit and self, heals characters and stank)
    Dispel Scroll, Opal Amulet
    240

    Heroes (213)

    Captain BSB (Halberdiers)
    FP Armour, TaliPres, Enchanted Shield
    141

    Warrior Priest (Halberdiers)
    Heavy Armour, Great Weapon
    138

    Core(603)

    26 Greatswords (7x4)
    Command, Standard of Discipline
    331

    Rare (299)

    Steam Tank
    49 Pts Chaff

    2400

    Add:

    Master Engineer
    (Heroes at 27

    3 Demis
    Muso, Gleaming Pennant
    199

    Helblaster Volley Gun
    1 Sabretusk
    (Rare at 445)

    3000

    Add:

    Detachments (for Halberds):
    20 Swordsmen
    10 Crossbows
    (Core to 833)

    1 Great Cannon
    1 Demi to unit, upgrade to Steel Standard
    (Special to 84

    Hurricanum
    30 Pts of Storm chaff
    (Rare to 625)

    I like this setup; I think it will fare well in scenarios, and to that end I intentionally tried to lay down as many core infantry blocks in the low points list as possible, so I'd have a shot at watchtower, etc. One question mark for me is the knights. I don't know if I've ever taken them without a WP. Will that lower their usefulness, or do I just need to be a little more careful with target selection? I do like spending less on unnecessary characters and being able to field more models and cannons.

    I know this board's a bit dead and this is a lot of variables to look at, but can you give me any comments? Does it look like this army has a real weakness at any of the points levels, or does it look relatively hard to go up against?

    Drop the standard of discipline from the great swords especially if your arch lector is with them, because they then can't use his higher ld. Personally I woud try to get the wailing banner so that they are immune/cause fear and terror.
