Re: "I could beat that army!" Theoryscape Challenge

My first thought was ''Nhah Scirh Cultists'' ! But Acid Breath is not an SA...

I'll go with :

Hydra x3 - 360
Kaemon - 480
Marcu - 500

May look stupid, but they're all heroes (so Braxas is less effective) and are not common (so Mezzos are less effective too). Kaemon can use his SA on the demons to bypass exoskeleton. And both hydras and Kaemon have multi-attack so not attacking much won't be a big problem.

I only have 5 units, but you only have 10 (and the mezzos aren't so good with all their powers negated).

My Raiders have numbers on your Templars, and are fast enough that you shouldnt be getting the charging bonus too terribly often. My army has bonding synergy, and Jotun is more than a match for eltahale. Isamu gets a bonus against your whole army, and is frail enough that the attack bonus to the templars doesn't really matter anyway

Re: "I could beat that army!" Theoryscape Challenge

Migol - 110
Dwarves x3 - 320
Krug - 440


Krug is incredible at melee hero killing and can deal with Jotun easily ! Since you don't have range he can come out no problem. He'll die pretty quickly though, so we have our second big hero killer : Migol ! With his one shield defense he is especially good against big hitters.

Alternatively if we start with the dwarves, they'll get a bonus against Jotun (they're fearless !), and Krug will easily finish the work. If he's alone against the Dreadgulls... I'm sorry for them.

Darrak is useful too, and if he's played well he could kill a lot of barbarians.

Fly Raelin out to some high ground near your SZ, then throw warriors at the problem until it goes away.
The Nakita agents are there to give whoever has to counter this a harder time, because I'm a jerk

Have fun as none of your defensive powers do diddly squat for you.

Lead off with the frost giant, engage as many as possible. Once down to about half life, start moving the havechs in, but leave enough order markers on the Giant that they can't ignore it. The eradicators outgun the wolves, and can go for the range attack if the battle starts getting worrisome.

Re: "I could beat that army!" Theoryscape Challenge

Sentinals of Jandar x3 (330)
Atalga the Kyrie Warrior (90)
Raylin the Kyrie Warrior

With no auto wounders, the Sentinals will be super hard to take down, especially with Raylin backing them. Dying swipe might bring down a few, but no one else in your army has the power. Atalga uses BoW on the giant, and that could be helpful if he kills him before getting to the other Kyrie.

Re: "I could beat that army!" Theoryscape Challenge

Sudema (140)
Deathstalkers x3 (300)
Deadeye Dan (60)

Lead with Deathstalkers and Deadeye supporting. With Stalkers' speed and Deadeye's range, there's little hope of escaping their defense negating abilities. Aiming for your heroes first.Then bring in Sudema to make statues out of whatever remains.

The Romans and their 5 Attacks/Turn, with Me-Burq-Sa piercing their defense with Paralyzing Stare and the Azure Warlord smashing them with Furious Wrath, make short work of your Deathstalkers, clearing the way for the destruction of your weak, single Attack, heroes.

This is exactly what the Romans need - a hard hitting tanker." ~ Wanderer999

My sentiments exactly.
I already PMd nyys to obtain one of these.
