Well met!

Previously (see my blog entitled Tourney Series in Mineola), I posted the 1500 point pool for this tournament series. It is now time to determine what mid-season revisions (up to 500 points) I wish to make. In light of the advent of Master Set 3, and my desire to adhere to the tenets of the Valhalla Society, the following will be my pool for the rest of the season). Final Version, after comments and advice. Re-revised 12/31.

220 Captain America
220 Tor-Kul-Na
140 Othkurik
120 Kaemon
110 Ninjas of the Northern Wind
100 Syvarris
100 Kozuke
100 2 x WoA
80 Raelin
80 Thorgrim
80 2 x Deathreavers
60 2 x Nagrubs
40 Theracus
30 Eldgrim
20 Kyntela
10 Otonashi
10 Isamu

I'm glad to see we're not doing the same thing. My additions will probably be Pelloth, Drow x2, Feral Troll x2. The shock of losing so many tournament games has clearly driven me mad! MWAHAHA!!!

With Captain America, Raelin, and Syvarris all in your pool, I'd strongly consider adding Ana Karithon, too. The Cap/Syvarris/Ana/Raelin pod is really, really good. At high point levels, toss some rats in front of it and watch it crush.

I'll have to seriously consider it. If I take out Tandros and Thorgrim for Ana, and keep the little dragon, What would you suggest for the 100 points credit?

Another squad of stingers and another squad of Deathreavers perhaps?

For the record, your italics aren't displaying for me, so I don't know what you're taking out. As such, it's a bit hard for me to assess what you should add. Even if I take out all the guns it still adds to 1640.

Anyway, you don't have to take out both Tandros and Thorgrim to add Ana - she's only 100 points. Still, a couple figures (aside from the rats you already have) that play well with the Ana pod I mention there include:
  • Kyntela Gwyn - only 20 points, adds more defense to Syvarris, and she's a pain to take down when backed by Raelin, Captain America, and possibly Ana's bonus as well.
  • Sonlen - obviously too expensive without some other rearrangement, but I gotta mention him.
  • Brunak/Saylind - like Theracus, they speed construction of the pod. Saylind can be especially nice since he doesn't have to make return trips, but Brunak makes for a nice roadblock/tank in a way the others do not.

It's worth noting that the whole build is pretty map and matchup dependent. If there's a nice high spot with decent sight lines within one move of the startzone, that helps a ton. If your opponent has a lot of Utgar figures, even better. If neither of those things are true, consider alternative builds.

Re-revised Pool

Sorry Dok, but I can't bear not bearing the Ninjas into battle, so I'm deleting Ana and Kyntela for the Ninjas and Otonashi.
