Which squads do you think are the most fun?

Hi all,

I'm curious, which squads do you think are the most fun to play? Not the best ó simply the most enjoyable?

For me it would be the Zombies, for the sheer cackling glee of seeing new Zombies rise!

The Venoc Vipers for the frenzying and Omnicron Snipers for the doubled skulls and height advantage (and taking out a Fen Hydra on one roll).

Re: Which squads do you think are the most fun?

I really enjoy games when I have the Phantom Knights. The freedom to fly around and pick the most advantageous engagements; the maneuverability to beat most units to the punch; the defense to have a decent chance to weather attacks while your order markers are elsewhere. I mostly just have 2 squads of commons figures, and for many builds I don't feel like it's enough, but splashing 2 squads of PKs usually feels like I'm gonna get a return on my investment. They can perform multiple roles if your squad has something it's missing. They can be Glyph getters, an assassination squad, height deniers, a screen. Anyway, I usually feel like, and do, have a fighting chance (as long as I have something to deal with Braxas). I don't always win when I have them, but I always have fun.

Re: Which squads do you think are the most fun?

Zombies are my all time favorite. I just like watching my opponent’s face when my measly 2 attack not only kills one of their figures, but puts another one of mine on the board. I also find it fun to fight off a swarm of incoming zombies. Oh, and you can only shoot them in the head. Very thematic and fun.
I like the rechets of bogdan as well. The threat range they have on the turn they’re summoned is very satisfying. And lethal sting hardly ever happens, but the anticipation it brings is very fun to me. It’s like rolling defense as a deathwalker but in a fun kind of way.

Re: Which squads do you think are the most fun?

The Marro Drudge on a swamp map just bring a smile to my face.

Just when you thought it was all right, someone made it alright.

Good trades with - Porkins / xraine69 / mac122 (x2) / frylock / Ztimster (x2) and probably others I forgotten to mention...sorry.

Re: Which squads do you think are the most fun?

for pure fun, I love to send a wave of Red Ants across to board. Also, if the numbers are right, I love running Granite Guardians and watching the slow roll of rock death. Agree that I don't often win with these (the reason they are not played much), but it is fun to play!

What GenCon taught me was to assume only one skull on three dice!

Wolves of Badru - I pounce almost every time I can (once took out a full-life Agent Skahen with a pounce). *

Goblin cutters - these little guys are fun.

axegrinders - love me some dwarves.

Couldn't agree more!

Favorites are Zombies, Greeks, Shades, Monks, Microcorp, Dividers, Armoc Vipers, Protectors, Dwarfs, Aubriens, Einar Imperium, Samurai squads, and the Mohicans.
