Re: Red Wyrmling Pre-Release Discussion Thread

I would have liked it better if its special attack could hit one figure that was beside the targeted figure. It would have been more of a mini Zelrig that way. Up the point cost to 35 for this and there you are.

Re: Red Wyrmling Pre-Release Discussion Thread

Next month, the Gang of Five is playing a 510 point, General-specific game (scenario to be determined). The General for each player was randomly determined, and I am playing Einar. There is no Utgar (unless a possible new (to us) player joins us). I'm thinking along the lines of the following . . .

120 Kaemon
100 Marcus
100 SB x 2 or Romans x 2
320

plus 190 points . . .

I could play Zelrig (so obvious). I could play the Kozuke (or Ana?) and 3 Red Wyrmlings (too few?). Or I could go in another direction . . .

120 Kaemon
100 Kozuke (or Ana?)
60 Izumi
280

plus 230 points . . .

I could then play the NotNW and 4 Red Wyrmlings. (I could, I suppose, count on the Kozuke to dispose of any tough heroes, and double the number of Red Wyrmlings by letting Kaemon go, but that would not be as good would it?)

I could work in the TSA . . .

150 Red Wyrmlings x 5
130 TSA x 2
120 Kaemon (surely better than Tandros, but mightn't the Tagawa Samurai be a viable option?)
110 NotNW
510

What do you all think?

Why not use the standard 500 Point Ashigaru army

Re: Red Wyrmling Pre-Release Discussion Thread

Why stop at Ashigaru? If you want a real army, just play 4th Mass x6. Down points? Who cares! It's the 4th.

Honestly, I do really like the Ashigaru army... though I'm not brave enough to bring it to a tournament.

I'd bring the Kozuke instead of the NotNW, just a better offense while keeping the same defense (kinda); they are melee, but will act as an "oh shi-!" or clean up unit. Then drop the TSA, they just don't have the attack power needed, and add in equal points of Harquebus. They don't need Kato if they're without the Yari... Where are we on points?

Kaemon Awa 120
Reds x5 150
Kozuke 100
Ashigaru Harquebus x2 120

... That puts you 20 points short.

What do you think?

Re: Red Wyrmling Pre-Release Discussion Thread

Too bad it isn't 515 or you could go with the interesting

Zelrig
3x Romans
3x Harquebus

Re: Red Wyrmling Pre-Release Discussion Thread

Btaxxas' worst nightmare is baby dragons. Acid breath is a lot less cosistant and thry all can hit her or her usual screen pretty well. Specificaly the red because he nails her best screen...rats. Red wymerlings to kill screen while blue ones hit her with four or five attack. As a braxxas counter how about...
Reds x5 150
blues x4 290 (140)

Okay fun core and would really irritate braxxas. The more I think about these guys the more i like them.

Keep your hints rational!
