I know I posted another 500 point merc list earlier on, but that was actually a fair while ago, and I've had some time to think about a better list. So, here it is-

-Magnus the Traitor

-2xRenegade light warjack

-Mule heavy warjack

-Eiryss, Mage Hunter

-Ogrun Bokur (contract: Magnus)

-Alexia Ciannor and the Risen

-Hammerfall Highshield Gun Corps

=498

So, I know there isn't a huge crowd of Warmachine players on LO, but what do you think?

That's a pretty tough 500 points. The only weakness I see is that Alexia needs a constant supply of corpses to keep working at maximum strength. You've only really got the high shields to feed her. When I run Alexia, I do it with a eSorscha + 20 Winterguard list. That way, the elite cadre WG have tough, and when they do die, they come back as risen. You basically have to assassinate Alexia or you have to kill the WG twice.

You also might consider putting the ogrun on Alexia, as she's got to be near dying troops to be most effective.

Hmm... The Ogrun idea sounds interesting, but I'd really like Magnus protected. Well, I could just stick the mule near him, that would be protection enough. That's a good Idea the Ogrun on Alexia, last game I played a Cryx plyer got through my risen and killed her with satixys raiders. Wouldn't have happened if Bokur was there...:yes:

As for the more zombie fodder, someone suggested dropping the solos for a unit of halberdiers, or alternatively I could put in another unit of dwarves.

I play pure mercs, so the Khador's out of the question until my Khador playing buddy gets them, I have to concentrate on my own army ATM.

I'm not saying you ought to start playing Khador, I was just giving my eSorscha list as an example of how effective Alexia can be.

I definitely agree that you need more bodies on the field, but I don't think cutting the solos is the way to go. The ogrun is a good combo with Alexia and Eiryss is always fun.

Personally, I'd cut one of the Renegades and add either steelheads or more dwarves. Add the second renegade when you play 750 p games.
