What?!? You don't have three squads of Deathreavers?? It's practically a requirement to play the game. I'm sure your local Toys r Us has half a dozen in stock. You'll find them next to the Gladiator & Agent packs.

There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

I've still only got two packs myself. I've got 3 and 4 of certain other packs. Gotta love wave 1&2 commons.

I got 3 reavers as soon as wave 5 came out... wish I had done the same back when wave one was in my neck of the woods. I was still young and green then I thought I should have one of EVERYTHING before I had two of anything... but double gruts will have to do me for now.

I revived this dead thread because I've been thinking a little more about this army. Basically, I don't like that it doesn't have RotV Raelin in it. Would I perhaps be better off replacing Cyprien/Sonya with Raelin/Awasome or Raelin/Krug? Or is Cyprien just too neat to replace?

Original idea being:
Cyprien - 150
Sonya - 45
3xStinger - 180
3xRats - 120

I'd say go with cyprien. But if you're keen on having raelin in there remove the deathreavers, as they both are performing the same function: to protect your units

Very good actually.

5 life, 5 defense, and flying. Way underpriced compared to the cello flagbearer or guitar squad.

I think I'd prefer rats over Raelin for helping out Stingers (especially if you add Cyprien) because Stingers have relatively short range and will often have to move out of Raelin's aura to get in range if they're facing off against Q9 or Krav. If you've got rats locking the above down, you can move in with your stingers at your leisure. It works similarly for Cyprien too, since he is melee.

We should probably ask spider though, since he ran both Raelin and 2x Deathreavers alongside stingers at the TTO.

Yes, I can testify from personal experience that Deathreavers with 6 defense are a major pain.

Personally, I've always liked the idea of this army:

150 Cyprien Esenwein
180 Marro Stingers x3
050 Iskra Esenwein
050 Rechets of Bogdan
045 Sonya Esenwein
020 Marcu Esenwein
------------------------
495 total, 13 figures/spaces + 3 Rechets

317-149

Yeah, I love having Stingers with Rats and Raelin. When I played them for the TTO, I didn't necessarily have Raelin always help just the Stingers or just the Rats...it was a combination of both (though usually the Stingers). As long as I was flexible with the role of Raelin in my Stinger/Rat army, she did very well. Basically, I just like to take any good army and Raelinify it :P

I can't really say much about Cyprien though. I just don't have enough experience using him to really help that much. I know he can just rip through Arrow Gruts, though. I've played the gruts against the vampire before, and it was completely hopeless.

Hmm... I should probably stick with Cyprien if I expect a grut heavy field then. I definitely know what I'd add for a higher point tourney though.
