Judge these Armies

I wanted to know what the community thought of a couple of Army ideas I had.

Army 1
1. Kurrok
2. Raelin (RotV)
3. Fire Elemental x 2
4. Earth Elemental x 2
5. Air Elemental x 2
6. Water Elemental x 4

Army 2
1. Marro Hive
2. Marro stingers 6x

Army 3
1. Kurrok
2. Raelin (RotV)
3. Q9
4. Water Elemental x 2
5. Fire Elemental x 2

Army 4
1. Marro Hive
2. Su Bak Na
3. Marro Stingers 3x

Thanks in advance.

LONG LIVE US GAMERS!!!!

Re: Judge these Armies

Armies one and 2 are good and fun but 3 and 4 are bad.

3 is bad because Kurrok is expensive and having him for only 4 elementals is a waste. Try maybe dumping Raelin and Q9 and putting a hydra instead and getting more elementals.

Army 4 is also crippled due to too many high price units. YOu should dump the hive in that build and get more stingers.

Re: Judge these Armies

Some of the more senior members will not like this thread due to the vast number of similar threads, so if you want help building armies, I suggest that you look at the following:
An idiot's guide to making a competitive army
What's in an order marker?
Unit strategy reviews index
Heroscape Power Rankings
Cookie Cutter Army Discussion and Tiers
The Books of HeroScape
Visual synergy in HeroScape

Re: Judge these Armies

Thanks J for the criticism. Its appreciated.

Neo, it is understandable about the number of threads similar to this. Is there a specific fourm or thread that is meant for having others give theiropinions of armies?

I don't think so, but there is a nice spell check function... It's the first three letters of the alphabet with a check.

Ah I see. Ok then.

Re: Judge these Armies

On army 1, I'd dump those Earth Elemental for more fire or water.

Depends, if you are fighting alot of squads, especially melee squards, EE's are brutal but in general, you do best with mostly fire or water and air.

Unless it accidentally deletes the vast majority of you wrote. Then, that spell checker is not so nice.

On topic, I like army 1, minus the Earth Elementals. Replace them with Fire and you've got a team of specialists.

2. These thread are fine because they all have different armies. How are any of these links (really, besides the first one), relevant to what he is asking? He's asking if these armies are good, not what are good army ideas. Noob.
Anyways, for the first army, I'd go with 4 fires and 4 airs instead of what you have there for competitive reasons, (or maybe just all fires...) but that looks like a fun army. I may be wrong, as I've never seen the Earth or Water Elemental play, but I think it's not great competitively. Army two is good, Army 3 is an OM nightmare (they really need a sign for that ), and 4 would be much better as Dividers and SBN. Good army ideas, hope to see more!

They are all in some way useful to army building.
