Re: The Book of Anubian Wolves

You could try x3 Dumutef Guard. They boost the wolves with adjacency, but your probably better off picking ranged figures; your army currently is lacking there. Maybe Marro Warriors and filler?

I thought about that but 30 points of filler seems kindof a lot. I'll give it a shot though. I think for 520 the Krav is a good pick.

Re: The Book of Anubian Wolves

Theres always the Wolves of Badru.

for 510
Anubians X3 - 225
Khosumet - 300
Wolves of Badru X2 -460
Dumutef X2 - 510

then again you need the Wolves of Badru and Khosumet.....
I have 2 squads of each Anubians and Bdru Wolves and am getting Khosumet here in a day or two and cant wait to pitch them against some knights.

but yeah toss in some Wolves of badru and Khosumet if possible.

Re: The Book of Anubian Wolves

At 500 points, I'd really like to try this:

Nilfheim - 185
Anubians x3 - 225
Raelin - 80
Isamu - 10

Total = 500

I think this army pretty much has everything.... it's quick, has strong attack and defense, can kill heroes or squads and has the special attack.

As for the Anubians, I'm not really sure what they play well with. To me, they're a lot like the Dzu-Teh or Obsidian Guards - strong, 3 member melee squad with little to no synergy offered by other units. Two squads of them provides a decent, durable hero-killing force I suppose.... I'll have to ponder that.
The big difference between the Anubians and the DT/OG is the 6 movement stat. The wolves are FAST, and can get into desirable positions relatively easy on most maps. And their solid defense of 4 puts them well ahead of other 3-squad units like the Temps, EI, or Groks which only have a defense of 3. A defense of 4 really is that magic number for squads.

I typically field 3X Anubians in my wolf armies, and they usually do quite well. As a hero-killing squad, they really do shine. And even with throwing in Khosumet with 3X wolves for that D20 boost, you're only at 300 points, which leaves several hundred points available for added range support.

The wolves ain't an A+ unit by any stretch, but they are on the very top of my personal list as one of the most fun units to field.

Anubians x3 225
Sonya 270
Cyprien 420
???? 500/520

I tried Deathreavers, but I wonder if there is something better.
I did well at a tournament with this build

Anubians x3
Deathreavers X2 (1.5 with starting zone restrictions)
Marden Hounds x1
Krav

Used the Marden hoounds first as "cruise missles" taking out what they could with plague etc...

Then sent out the revers to engage and hold the enemy in position. Also moved out the wolves buying time with the reavers waiting for a good fury role. Once you get the good role with X3 Wolves and a 6 moves you will for sure have wolves within range of making the big kill.

Then move in the Krav to finish the work or kill things you don't want to get close to with the wolves.

Re: The Book of Anubian Wolves

a relentless army

khosumet 75
anubians x3 225
badrus x2 160
dumutef x2 50
sir hawthorne 90
total 600

could be an overpowering army

If anyone has any sets waves 1-7 and 9-10, SOTM, or large sets that they would want to sell, send me a message.

Re: The Book of Anubian Wolves

The slow roll with four squads of these guys works great!

Re: The Book of Anubian Wolves

For a wolf army you could always do:
3x Anubians 225
3x WoB 240
Khosumet 75
Total 540/19

Or you could switch out Khosumet with a dumutef and Isamu for 500/21.

5x Anubians 375
Khosumet 75
2x Dumutef Guard 50
Total 500/20

Re: The Book of Anubian Wolves

I'm a big fan of:

3x Anubians
3x WoB
2x Dumutef
Khosumet

For 590.

EDIT: Now that I look at the_kyrie's army above, I'm sold. I don't like having armies that are a few points short...

Re: The Book of Anubian Wolves

Hey guys I've been thinking of fielding an Anubian wolf army at NHSD and I was thinking:

Anubian wolves x4
Kaemon
Raelin (rotv)
500 points exactly

What do you guys thinks? The maps look small enough for the wolves 6 move to close the gap quick. Any ideas?
