My Army for my first Tourney

Hey y'all. Relatively new Scaper, here.

I think I'll be doing my first tournament within a couple months. This is the army I'm thinking of going with. I'd appreciate your thoughts/feedback.

Max points is 490.

Grut Archers X2
Swog Rider X2
Mimring
Krug
Kelda

I love the bonding capabilities, and ideally I'll be able to use Kelda on the 2 heros.
See any weaknesses?

Re: My Army for my first Tourney

Kelda is surprisingly hard to use effectively with a squad order marker based army because any turn you take with Kelda usually leads to 2-3 of your squads being killed when they can't act.

You'd be better off with Raelin since you invest 1 OM in round 1 and then you can put all your OMs on arrow gruts after that.

Re: My Army for my first Tourney

Hey, welcome to the site!

Are maps/glyphs for your tourney known? Start zone/figure limit?

Just going off of your initial army, I say drop Kelda and add 2 more sets of orc archers. 2 sets of archers probably won’t live long enough to bond all game with the rest of the army.

With 4 squads, you should be able to drop OMs on archers the whole game and pick bonding hero that best fits the situation each turn.

More edit: As Heroscaper Guy mentions, you could consider 1:1 archer squad to swog rider ratio. Drop Kelda for 1 squad of archers+1 swog+Isamu.

He probably wants some more swogs too. I think it's recommended like one swog per squad if I remember? But yeah I agree with dropping Kelda.

Maps and glyphs will be available soon, as I understand it.

Re: My Army for my first Tourney

What the others said- Kelda won't be able to keep up with the army to do her healing thing, and if she is, you'll be giving up a lot of attacks. Go for Raelin (usually one OM in the first round) or more Gruts/Swogs.
