Can't fit the first and last... 2 Templar and 2 Rats are 20hexes. Guess I should've mentioned that: 180pts/4hexes filler

Re: The Army Advice and Feedback Thread

Oh, your tourney is using hex limits instead of figure limits? Lame.

Raelin and Krav is a pretty good option then.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Thoughts on the filler? Q9 fits the bill perfectly and gives a special attack but I'd rather not play Q9 because, well... he's Q9 (and I'm already playing Rats).
That's the army I took to my second ever tournament. Really fun. I love Templar and rats together. (I also love both rats and Q9, together or separately. I'm not a bad person though, I promise.)

Like others are suggesting, I think the most powerful ranged units you're comfortable with are what makes the army strongest. However, if you want to double down on theme you could go for Sir Dupuis and then top up with Guilty or Marcu and Isamu.


Edit. Oops, I see you'd already thought of Dupuis/Eldgrim. I got excited when I saw the first army and didn't read the rest of your post properly.

With a 16 figure limit none of those options would work since the 2 Templar and Rats are 14 figures.

Re: The Army Advice and Feedback Thread

So I've been wanting to try the Death Knights and do a new battle type, which is Five Card Stud (yes, like the one Legoboy and Canuck did). Here's the army I conjured up:

DKoVx3-180
Crixus-90
Heirloom-90
Migol-110
Eldgrim-30

Feedback welcome.

Never tell me the odds, because I already know 'em...

Also a sucker for anything Warforged...

Looks like it would be difficult on your OMs. Maybe you could trade a hero for one that bonds with the Death Knights. Maybe switch Crixus for Sir Hawthorne or something like that. Or even switch Crixus and Heirloom for Taelord since the Death Knights benefit pretty well from that extra die on attack.

Thanks! I'll think I'll put in Hawthorne in place of Hierloom. Always looks good with the DKoV.

Re: The Army Advice and Feedback Thread

So I'm planning a Hero battle and Monster mash. For the Monster mash (560) battle I have conjured up this:
Krug-120
Nilfheim-185
GIE-130
Stingersx2-120
Total-555
For the Hero battle (600)I have this:
Krug-120
Nilfheim-185
DrakeV2-170
Siege-120
Total-595

Never tell me the odds, because I already know 'em...

Looks good. If you wanted to be a jerky-jerk you could trade Drake v2 and Siege for Drake v1 and Q9...

I actually thought about that, but my friend hates it when I use Quiggly. I try to limit my use of him.

Still considering options for this... How would Concan and the C3V's new Sentinels of Grax fill in?

Re: The Army Advice and Feedback Thread

That is an army I would love to play (and might well do so very soon). Do it! And report back.
