Krav Maga Agents (100)
Raelin (80)
4x Zombies (240)
440 points
This army is good. Takes full advantage of Raelin, and it has somewhat of an answer for Rats, too. I really think Zombies are underrated, and can be very powerful when played correctly (which is really hard to do).
You are correct sir the army can be hard to play, but alot of fun too. In the northeast NHSD we might have to play our opponent's army so giving them an army/unit that they have little or no experience using is a heck of a good play in my book. Also I just want more people to play the Zed army. It's what got me in to scape at my first NHSD 3 years ago. Sweet memories
Personally, I think the Zombies are some of the toughest units to play correctly. There's just so much going on with them - definitely one of my favorite units.
Who knows maybe D&D scape will give us a necromancer or something to make them more faster, stronger, and smarter! Well at least faster.

Knowledge is Power.
Power Corrupts.
Study Hard.
Be Evil.

Re: 440pt Armies

DW8K
DW9K
Rats x4
Isamu
440 - 19 Hexes

I contemplated something like this in the last tourney I played in (BBV), but chickened out in the end (and the day went terribly with the army I did bring).

I think I may just gather the courage to do it this time, and just imagine the look on my opponents face if a blank is rolled.

If that opponent is me you can expect a huge grin (and maybe a Deathwalker in return, depending on what I end up playing). I love the deathwalkers. Rats too, for that matter.

Re: 440pt Armies

Indeed. Also, taking the DW build will erase any guilt I may have about taking a very powerful army as my 2nd choice.

I'm going for a mixed approach too. One army will probably be KoW/Denrick/Finn/Marro Warriors. Not too strong, but not too shabby either. However, it's certainly solid. Stodgy almost. As a counterpoint, Im planning a D20-heavy swingy second army. (I consider the deathwalker honorary members of the unreliable D20 power club.) I'm not sure yet what the second army will contain, but probably some mix of strong and weak D20 units: Anubians, Braxas, Mohicans, Marrden Hounds, Ke-Mo-Shi, Dividers, Sudema,...

I'll decide on the morning which to designate A and which to designate B, depending on my mood. The one I want to play more will be A.

Ollie, you should go with:

Sudema - 140
DW8K - 270
Marro Warriors - 320
Deathreavers x3 - 440

If you aren't allowed to duplicate the Marro, switch them up for MBS, Arkmer or Brave Arrow. They all have some nice D20 abilities.

I think that army could perform pretty darn well.

EDIT - you know, that army with Raelin at 520 looks downright excellent.

Re: 440pt Armies

Ollie

2x Marrden Hounds 180
Sudema 140 (320)
3x Omnicron Repulsors 120 (440)
22 Spaces


Marrden Hounds can block and plague squads. Repulsors can attack at range or burn through soulborgs. Sudema can take out dragons while the Marrden Hounds tank.

Re: 440pt Armies

2xHero, omnicrons are great against non-braxas dragons already. They are in their element against heros with high defense. Sudema really isn't going to be worth it.

How about this?

2x Microcorp-200
KMA-300
Laglor-410
Marcu+isamu-440

Re: 440pt Armies

Probably already said, but:

Sentinels x2 220
4th Mass x3 210
Total 430

Re: 440pt Armies

I am going to be at the Gamers Reunion Tournament this weekend and my 440pt army hasn't been brought up. I will wait and let everyone know what it is and how well I did Sunday after the tourney.

Re: 440pt Armies

Heading to the same tourney as Jexik this weekend so I won't tip my hand either except to say one of Killercactus's armies is close. I was also thinking about the orc/beast army but decided against it.

2011 most played: 1. Heroscape/Monsterpocalypse/Quarriors. 4. Warhammer Invasion. 5. Last Night on Earth.
