550 Point Armies

So we have a thread for 500 point armies and 600 point armies. But I didn't see a thread for the 'tween!

550 point armies!

Our AZ group has been using 550 as a pre-built point standard as of late, and I was curious to see what armies people come up with for this point value.

A couple of mine are below:

KravLagGladBlasticombo (aka, Soul Razor Annihilator):
Laglor = 110
Krav Maga = 100
Blastatrons x3 = 180
Gladiatrons x2 = 160
TOTAL = 550

Marro Mayhem:
Su Bak Na = 160
Me Burq Sa = 50
Marro Warriors = 50
Marro Drones x5 = 250
DeathReavers = 40
TOTAL = 550

Zombie Unconventional:
Me Burg Sa = 50
4th Mass. x2 = 140
Zombies x 6 = 360
TOTAL = 550

Agent Anarchy

Agent Carr - 100
Krav Maga Agents - 100
Nakita Agents - 120
Microcorp Agents x2 - 200
Eldgrim the Viking Champ - 30

Total = 550

Ultimate Ullar...

Venoc Warlord - 120
Elite Onyx Vipers - 100? (i forget...)
Aubrien Archers x 3 - 195
Saylind - 80
Theractus - 40

Total = 535

Saylind and Theractus take the Archers up to height, and then you rain down arrows.

Deadly Dragons

Braxas / Charos - 210
Nilfheim - 185
Mimring - 150

Total = 545

This army probably just loses, but it would look cool. Slighly more realistic would be...

Braxas / Charos - 210
Nilfheim - 185
Swog Rider - 25
Arrow Gruts x3 - 120

Total = 540

This gives you some bonding and dragons flying all over the place. If you subbed out Nilf for Mimring you could get another arrow gruts or 2 more swogs in.

No need to get down. The remark wasn't at all directed at you. I'd actually played that army on Soul Razor before, so I knew how effective it was with these simple strategy points:
Send out the Gladiatrons to clog the nooks and provide homing devices
Send the Krav to high ground (Krav thrive on this map)
Position the Blastatrons around Lag for best angles and range possible
Fire away
Hold Lag back as Blast support until opponents larger heroes have been weakened or destroyed
Send Lag out to help clean up what's left

Re: 550 Point Armies

Well met!

In light of the upcoming Pitman, NJ tourney (link below), Who Turned Out the Lights?, 550 point melee armies, with no ranged powers of any kind, including auras, I thought I'd momentarily revive this thread.

Thinking of something besides gruts, knights, or romans...

Minions x 5
550, 15 spaces
~Just watch out for Rats; you could sub in Moriko for one squad of Minions to add a reasonable melee especial
----
Spartacus 200
Capuans x 5 350
16 spaces, 550
~Finally a way to bring some numbers for the Glads. 3 strong attacks a turn, if you can hold off on using Sparty until later in the game.

or try the standard Steamroller with a twist:

Spartacus 200
Crixus 90
Caps x 3 210
Rats x1 40
Isamu 10
16 spaces, 550
~Spend a couple of OMs on the rats, and then Glads from there on out. Isamu is your last-ditch tool.
----
Death Knights x 5 300
Dumutef x 4 100
Sir Hawthorne 90
Theracus 40
Marcu 20
22 spaces, 550 points
~Send out Theracus with the black knight, then move up your deadies while Hawthorne becomes a pimple on your opponent's start zone.
----
Goblin Cutters x 5 250
Cyprien 150
Sonya 45
Gurei 100
24 spaces, 545
~With no Q brothers, Cyprien and the Cutters can really shine. Gurei is pretty much just a 100 point special attacker (Kumiko might be a better option?).


Ice Elementals and/or Tagawa Samurai might be good in this format as well.

Re: 550 Point Armies

For your format, I think Zombies x7, Krug, Isamu.

Zombies for swarming and rebirthing, something to whack those annoying big heroes, and Isamu to round it out.

Re: 550 Point Armies

@FilthytheClown

Your army with x7 Capuans would cost 490 points, (plus Sparty would total 690) x5 Capuans would equal 350 (still a lot of Capuans though).

Here's my idea:
Minions of Utgarx5
550points/15spaces
------
Very straightforward army, but really strong in this all-melee format.
