What is the best army out there?

It's true that there's no one 500-point army that always wins, but what's the closest you can get? Does anybody know the best possible 500point army?

It is arguably the Ranged Vydar Pod (coined/made famous by Jexik).

Based around

Agent Q9 - 180
Krav Maga Agents - 280
Vydar Flag Bearer - 390
Raelin - 470

The best army is the one you've had fun playing, win or lose.

I know. There's no auto-win army. But I just want to know which has the greatest chance of winning. Of course it can lose sometimes.

That would leave 30 more points just BEGGING to be used by Isamu.

P.S. What's with the 9 spoiler alerts in your signature?

Re: What is the best army out there?

Almost everyone seems reluctant to advise. Given current tournament maps, I believe some of the best possible non-Marvel army builds are:

Raelin + Major Q9 + Krav Maga Agents + Deathreavers = 400

or for 500 points,

Raelin + Laglor + Major Q9 + Krav M.A. + Marcu = 500

or the close second,

The Marro Hive + 4 x Stingers + 2 x Deathreavers + Marcu = 500
(Use Deathreavers in a "replacing line" to secure glyphs/block melee)

Re: What is the best army out there?

I still like 4 x 4th Massachusetts Line and 2 x Sentinels of Jandar.

I do think we are all assuming a 24-hex start zone. Otherwise something like:
Q-9 and 8 x Deathreavers
would be awesome, as would
3 x Marro Stingers and 8 x Deathreavers.

Q9 and 5 x Deathreavers (plus Raelin and Isamu) didn't work well for me at all today. I went 1-4.

However it is most likely an operator error.

(I think it involves Thanos and Saylind, with Isamu in there just to be cost-efficient)
It depends on what you like playing with ? In your face malee or range . Samurai are awsome for their counter strike abilty.Vydar for your range attack

Re: What is the best army out there?

I've always thought Q9 + Nakitas + Krug + Raelin was darn tough for 500 points. But no common hordes and no ability to attack 4 times in a turn does hurt this army. Not to mention, who's grabbing glyphs for you?
You're probably better off with some rats and the Krav Maga alongside Q9 and Raelin if you want to be really sick.
Maybe:
Krav 100 (3 spaces)
Q9 180 (2 spaces)
Raelin 80 (1 space)
Rats x3 120 (12 spaces)
Isamu 10 (1 space)
Otanashi 10 (1 space)
for 500 points and 20 spaces.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.
