Myth26's horrible army emporium

I wrote a random army generator and thought I would share the output so we can all laugh at it together. There is one rule: it can't have synergy (except for General-wide things) by my memory. When I am reminded of synergy it instantly becomes too good to include here.


I'll start with 500 point armies:

['Templar Cavalry', 'Jandar', 3, 'Common', 'Squad', 120]
['Thorgrim the Viking Champion', 'Jandar', 1, 'Unique', 'Hero', 80]
['Torin', 'Utgar', 1, 'Unique', 'Hero', 120]
['Ornak', 'Utgar', 1, 'Unique', 'Hero', 100]
['Me-Burq-Sa', 'Utgar', 1, 'Unique', 'Hero', 50]

['Jorhdawn', 'Ullar', 1, 'Unique', 'Hero', 100]
['Brave Arrow', 'Aquilla', 1, 'Unique', 'Hero', 50]
Total points: 500
Total figures: 9


['James Murphy', 'Vydar', 1, 'Unique', 'Hero', 75]
['Tandros Kreel', 'Einar', 1, 'Unique', 'Hero', 120]
['Frost Giant of Morh', 'Vydar', 1, 'Uncommon', 'Hero', 140]
['Deathreavers', 'Utgar', 4, 'Common', 'Squad', 40]
['Kozuke Samurai', 'Einar', 3, 'Unique', 'Squad', 100]
['Drow Chainfighter', 'Utgar', 1, 'Common', 'Hero', 25]

I think that'll be all for now, let me know ways I can make these even worse or if you like this idea of purposefully random armies.

Re: Myth26's horrible army emporium

Reminds me of a worst army tournament we did back in the day.

So many Taros that day, several games came down to Taro versus Taro.

The event was so much fun we never did it again.

A must read for all 'Scapers!

Re: Myth26's horrible army emporium

I'm guessing you also avoided things like the Rechets without Iskra because it's too obvious.

Not sure if you’re asking me or the OP, but here are the rules we had for army building that day.

This event occurred in June 2007, which was when the vampires came out so we didn’t actually have them yet. We didn’t make a provision for them.

Worst Army Criteria:
- Minimum 400 points
- Minimum of 10 spaces used in the deployment zone
- Minimum of 1 Army Card with a base range value of 5 or more

A must read for all 'Scapers!

Re: Myth26's horrible army emporium

A more recent example is the worst army online event from 2019.

The rules there were:

Rules:

Each participant will submit 1 army consisting of classic heroscape units only. This army will be played by your opponent EVERY ROUND

- minimum of 500 points (no maximum point total)
-14 figure minimum (no maximum figure or hex total)
-Your army must contain at least 1 common squad army card
-You army must contain at least 3 unique heroes that are equal to or greater than 50 points
-Any common army card must have a minimum of 2 copies of that card in the army
-If a figure has a power that references another friendly figure, you must include at least the amount of figures that allow that power to be fully utilized. For example, if a squad has a bonding power, at least one bonding hero must be included. If you include Iskra, you must include Rechets, and vice versa. If you include Acolarh, you must include at least one elf. If you include Pelloth, you must include some other Drow. You do not have to include a Huge figure if you put in Sir Denrick as that power is not activated as friendly.

Reference Power Faq
Spoiler Alert!
The "winning" army was vegie's Ashigaru Yari x2, Sahaugin Raider x2, Acolarh, Morsbane, Deathwalker 7000, Deadeye Dan

it was an amazingly fun time, although runtime on games was definitely longer than average with attack output on the low side (I did add some Astrid and Crevcor glyphs to help with that)

I'm still bitter about losing in the finals. Vegie and I split two games, but he won the important one. My army (played by the opponent) was: Obsidian Guards x2, Sahaugin Raider x5, Sudema, Morsbane, Darrak Ambershard

Also there was an epic double Sir Hawthorne betrayal in the amazingly fun infectedsloth vs. Arrow Grut which I think ended with Morsbane rolling a natural 20 on Sir Hawthorne. Morsbane only had 1 negation marker even left!

infectedsloth: Marro Drudge x2, Morsbane, Kelda, Saylind, Sahuagin Raider x6
Arrow Grut (Map Control?!?): Ashigaru Yari x2, Earth Elemental x2, Acolarh, Deathwalker 7000, Sir Hawthorne, Kyntela Gwyn, Otonashi
