The One . . . 500 point army?

Well met!

If there were a tourney in which there were multiple maps with widely variant terrain randomly chosen before each fight, you had no idea of the opponent's army, and you had to choose a 500 point army for the entire tourney . . .

If you had to choose a 500 point army to play 'til the end of time . . .

You get the idea . . .

How about this to start:

Lil Raelin 80
Kaemon Awa 120
Sonlen 160
Izumi 60
Shaolin 80

[3/1/2010 Ah, how much has changed since 7/17/2008!]

Re: The One . . . 500 point army?

Well, welcome to the boards first off.

And what you're describing is pretty much standard tournament structure anyway. Pick an army capable of fighting on a variety of maps and able to handle a variety of different armies in return.

As far as having an army for all-time, I'd probably put in some multiple squads in there somewhere. While I love the Shaolin Monks, they aren't the best option, especially if you're only using one squad of them. May as well take the Knights, with one more defense die and the same attack. But I digress....

Kaemon is solid, as is Sonlen. Don't know that I would give up multiple attacks for having both of them in my army. You'd really only need one solid hero. Replace the other with a couple of squads of something else.

If you take out Kaemon, you can get 2 squads of stingers. Or if you take out Sonlen, you could take 2 squads of 4th Mass or 10th Foot. The advantage to this is that you'd be getting more than one attack per order marker.

Just my two cents.

Again, welcome to the boards

Re: The One . . . 500 point army?

As rym said, your question isn't really very different from a vanilla tournament in the first place. A big part of what a "tourney-worthy" army is all about has to do with handling multiple maps and unknown opponents.

My choice would be this:

420 blasts/glads x3
080 Raelin
500

Watch out, end of time!

I've played this army - and I hate it! But it is a nice one.

Re: The One . . . 500 point army?

I think I might go with:

Nilfheim 185
3x Marro Stingers 365
3x Deathreavers 485
Isamu 495 (24 hexes)

Re: The One . . . 500 point army?

I wouldn't call mine the best, but if we're talking for all time, then I would play the following because it'd be fun and I really enjoy it, and I have had success with it.

Kaemon Awa 120
Nakitas 120
Monks x 2 160
and either
Krav 100
or
Marro Warriors 50
Me-Burq-Sa 50

It's hodge-podge, but effective, and if I haven't said it, fun! Smokescreening Monks across the board to Shaolin Assault is wicked fun.

Re: The One . . . 500 point army?

Cyprien= 150
Sonya=195
Syvarris=295
AE=405
Marro Warriors=455
Eldgrim & Isamu/Theracus/ninja's and Marcu= 495

Q9 can be taken out with range from AE or Syvarris, I've done it before. Only problem might be Glad/Blast...any thoughts?

Re: The One . . . 500 point army?

Welcome to the site, kolakoski! Always good to see more Heroscapers from NYC.

As for your question, I'd hate to be stuck playing the same army forever, but how about this one:

Kaemon Awa - 120
Raelin - 80
Major Q10 - 150
10th Regiment of Foot x 2 - 150

Total - 500 points, 12 hexes

Glads/blasts would wreck you for sure if you tried to engage with multiple units at once. Best way for your army to fight them would probably be to pile markers on a single long-ranged unit and keep backing up. Position Syvarris at maximum range to two glads and shoot; repeat next turn. They may well wreck you in any case, because you have Cyprien holding you back and because you'll run out of room to retreat, but I expect you'll deal the most damage this way.
