Re: The Book of 10th Regiment

How about 3x 10th, Marcus + New Drake?

I kinda like Mimring here. One thing that a Legion/10th army lacks is mobility. Another is a Special Attack. Mimsy gives you both. If you can resist the temptation to charge out with the big Beast he should be well worth his price in support of what you already have there.

Pretty good, Aldin.

I recently played this 500-point army:

Marcus - 100 pts
Roman Legionnaires x 2 - 100
10th Regiment of Foot x 2 - 150
Major Q10 - 150

It did quite well, helping my team win the game. Q10 provides two flexible special attacks that the army would otherwise lack, as Aldin pointed out, and adds even more range to the militia army. Less mobile than Mimring, perhaps, but sturdier.

I do have to disagree with Aldin about this army's lack of mobility, however; the Romans with a 5 move and the Redcoats with 6 move is enough movement to do the job.

Re: The Book of 10th Regiment

Sherman Davies,

Nice, Q10 is another great option. I have to admit a certain penchant for mobility. Having played on a number of hilly, roadless maps I tend to crave a flier or two

Re: The Book of 10th Regiment

Q10, yes, that could work nicely...

EDIT: I fought a 490-point elf wizard army (should have added Otonashi but we miscalculated) on a small jungle-swamp map with that Marcus, 2xLegio, 2xRedcoats, Q10 set-up and all the soldiers were fried before they could attack anything; I managed 1 wound with a Redcoat but after that it was all over. However, Q10 messed some mothers up when I utilized him last and won me the game in the end.

Re: The Book of 10th Regiment

I have found the 10th reg gery effective, especially when using them with deathreavers or wolves of badru. The 'reavers get your enemy engaged & even if they land an attack, the scatter ability kicks in which leaves your oppnent's enemy open to wait-then-fire from the Reg. If you get them on height, then your pretty much have a great defensive line. Just don't group them adjacent or you could fall victim to a dragon's special attack or a wild swing attack.

Re: The Book of 10th Regiment

One 500 point army that looks good on paper (I don't have the 10th Regiment) is:

10th Reg x2 150
Sacred Band x3 300
Marcus 400
Parmenio 490
Isamu 500

This allows the Sacred Band their extra defense die, and a very valuable soldier enhancement.

Hehe... I finally get to say this.

I would use Romans instead. More defense.

Re: The Book of 10th Regiment

My brother ripped me a new one tonight with x2 10th; His army was:

x2 10th 150
Alistair 110
Finn 80
x2 Kow 140
Total: 480

We don't have some of the smaller point people, and I was using Otonashi.

He grabbed height with the 10th and sat Finn in the middle. Alistair and the KoW did the dirty work and grabbed/held +1 all attack and +1 common attack. I picked absolutely pathetically and played worse, but I think he had a really solid army. He could easily have used 4th, but we only have 1 set.

Sounds like a good strategy, except Finn only confers attack bonus to units that have a Range of 1 while he's alive.

That being said, with height, +1 Attack, and +1 Common Attack just about any ranged squad is going to dominate...

I didn't notice that! I haven't used Finn in so long; all I remembered was that he gave +1A to all adjacent figures. That would have been a good thing to know; though, it didn't matter much, he ripped Grimnak up in one turn with Alistair. All it took was one blank on the dice for defense to take 4 damage, then he followed it up with an overextend to finish. He was really my only hope.

Does Finn's aura work when the 10th is engaged to an enemy?

EDIT: To avoid a thread jack I'll go to the Finn thread.
REEDIT: Got my answer. Its no.

Re: The Book of 10th Regiment

Oooh, I do love me some cross-theme armies, though. For 500 points:

110 Alastair MacDirk
080 Thorgrim the Viking Champion
150 10th Regiment of Foot x2
140 Knights of Weston x2
020 Marcu Esenwien

Thorgrim can boost the 10th unlike his brother. And when he dies both Alastair and Marcu are good low-defense, high-life targets for his Spirit.

Or
110 Alastair MacDirk
160 MacDirk Warriors x2
080 Thorgrim the Viking Champion
150 10th Regiment of Foot x2

Now you only have Alastair to put the Spirit on, but his Warriors are faster than the Knights and can have higher attack.

I can honestly say I hadn't thought of either of these armies before. +rep
