Jotun -225
Krug - 120
Arrow Gruts x 2 - 80
Indiana...I mean James Murphy - 75

Watch your opponent's eyes when you line up Krug and Jotun together on the board. You might want to bring some Klennex with you. Arrow gruts for obvious bonding reasons and range. Whipped boy for those people who like to cluster together.

A slight variation on the Roman Archer swarm:

225 Jotun
080 Raelin
110 Roman Archers x2
080 Deathreavers x2

495 TOTAL

Deathreavers grab glyphs and tie up the enemy. Roman Archers pick off whatever they can, using reavers and Raelin for cover. Jotun cleans up.

I like this army a lot but its not a swarm. Raelin really would help but with not a lot of archers it may be hard to use the Special Attack.

My Army: Jotun 225
Saylind 80
Kelda 80
Izumi 60
MW 50
total: 495

Send in Jotun and whenever he gets too wounded, use Saylind to bring hem back and Kelda to heal him. Then send him out again. Late in the game keep Jotun out of range and send in the Marros to do a lot of damage on the hopefully by now rangelesss army. Keep the Izumi with the Kkkyries as body gards.

I like waffles!

Back to the thread...

I love me some Jotun. There's nothing quite like throwing your opponent around on the Heroscape board.

Jotun 225
Raelin 80
Deathreavers (x3) 120
James Murphy 75
Build Total = 500

Jotun is there because: He is Jotun, a Huge Height 10 of Heroscape badness.

Raelin boosts his defense to make him all the more indomitable. Defense 4 might be nice for some attacks, but you never know when you may need two more defense dice to help you shrug off some pesky attacks from puny people.

Deathreavers rush out into the fray to tie units up, grab glyphs and cause their usual mayhem.

James Murphy is there because when it comes to 75 points, there's simply no better way to spend them. The Shotgun Blast Special Attack is one of my all time favorites. Johnny Shotgun and James Murphy are gods among men in this game.
Ah... Classic.... But, how would he have over 1000 posts after being with us less than 6 months, if he were to capitilize his words?

My jotun army is as follows
Jotun 225
Syvarris 100
Aubrien Archers 70
Theracus 40
Deadeyedan 60

all equals 495

Check the stratige:
jotun ties up the enemy army, with his eight attack bashing heroes brains in, and with wild swing hitting homeruns with the puny squads.

Theracus carries deadeye dan to the tallest point on the board. he picks off squads with ullar enhanced rifle like its target practice.

when the opponent finally takes down the monster that is jotun, all they can do is charge a squad of aubrien archers and syvarris, whos arrows blot out the sun, leaving no hope for the enemy force.

Tor-Kul-Na
Jotun
Marro Warriors

Probably not the most competitive army, but it'd sure be fun to try. Marro take the glyphs. TKN and Jotun run out and do their thing.

You just put the name Marro WARRIOR, to shame. They aren't glyph grabbers. The Deathreavers are a glyph grabbing sqaud, and a cheaper one. Just add Isumi for filler.

Normally, I would agree with you. But standing next to those giants...

Also, there's only 55 points left, so Izumi are out. I tried to think of the best way to spend 50 points that I could, preferably with a ranged squad, and the Marro Warriors came up first.

I think he meant rats and Isamu, not the Izumi.
