Re: 10th Regiment of Foot- What's your Army Idea?

Some nice ideas there, Killercactus! It would be interesting to see some of those armies with the big 5 pointers for sure.
What's nice about the 10th is that, point-wise, 2 or 4 of them fit in very well with Greek or Roman armies and 3 of them fit in very well with the five-pointer crowd.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: 10th Regiment of Foot- What's your Army Idea?

They'd certainly make up in numbers for what they lacked in defense.

Re: 10th Regiment of Foot- What's your Army Idea?

I would like to playtest it against this:

SotM Drake - 170
4th Mass x4 - 280

Total = 450

I think Drake would give a 10th Foot army a ton of problems.

Re: 10th Regiment of Foot- What's your Army Idea?

10th X 3 = 225
Marcus DG = 325 +
Greeks X 2 = 425 +
James Murphy = 500

If I can fit James Murphy, I do it. He does great for me and he is disciplined.

I don't care about choosing my army based on strategy. I choose an army based on coolness and personal appeal... even if it means that my units will die trying. Hail to the glory of HeroScape and bravery.

Re: 10th Regiment of Foot- What's your Army Idea?

Conjoined in Hatred!
4x 10 feet under-300
4x sunday Mass-580
Marcu(s Gallus) -600

Might not have much variety...At any rate the 10th and 4th have to live together, and ignore their differences and fight together. All I have else to say is WTF!(love that joke)

Re: 10th Regiment of Foot- What's your Army Idea?

100 Marcus Decimus Gallus
090 Ne-Gok-Sa
150 10th Regiment of Foot x2
150 Roman Legionnaires x3
010 Otonashi
500 points, 23 spaces

Otonashi grabs a glyph early thanks to NGS's Trickiness. Then everyone else moves out en masse.

Or...

100 Marcus Decimus Gallus
150 10th Regiment of Foot x2
050 Me-Burq-Sa
200 Roman Legionnaires x4
500 points, 27 spaces...

You're the first to have mentioned Drake. I think he definitely belongs in the 10th Foot army. Ranged attacks are their biggest weakness. Drake mops up ranged attackers.

SotM Drake - 170
MDG - 100
10th Foot x 3 - 225

Total = 495

EDIT: +Isamu's sword and left retina = and even 500 pts.

Re: 10th Regiment of Foot- What's your Army Idea?

True, Drake is good against ranged attacks, but so are the Krav and they fit the point scheme a little better.

Krav - 100
Marcus - 100
10th Foot x4 - 300

Total = 500

Sure, they aren't soldiers, but there's three of them. Plus, they can draw armies into the 10th Foot while shooting at them.

Re: 10th Regiment of Foot- What's your Army Idea?

I thought of a way to fix my first army so it fits in the hexes better... and counters the Romans better.

Marcus 100
3x 10th Foot 325
2x Sacred Band 425
James Murphy 500

I think the one thing that the 10th Foot can do that the Mass certainly can't is coexist well with greeks.

Edit: HHH beat me to it. Nice job!

I have a hard time seeing Drake get more than 5 Foots (Feet???) killed before he is bayonnetted into a puddle. Then you have 19 Foots against 16 4th Mass..... advantage Foots.
