Sujoah and/or the Fyorlag Spiders - what's your army idea?

Now that Truth has even more anticipatory juices pumping with his blog post revealing(confirming) Sujoah and the Fyorlag Spiders' cards ( http://www.heroscapers.com/community/blog.php?b=281 ) I'm eager to see everyone's ideas for 400-600 point armies involving them (since most armies will likely feature both I've combined them). I'll go first with a 500 point army:

Sujoah 185
2x Fyorlag Spiders 80
Venoc Warlord 120
1xArmoc Vipers 65
Marro Warriors 50

Spiders on Speed! This army has mobility to spare, a decent ranged thread and a solid clean up squad. One of those armies that gets me in daydream mode

So what poisonous thoughts have been percolating through YOUR mind?

Zetacron? Perhaps Vipers and Isamu for the MW?

Also...

Sujoah - 185
Mittens - 120
Spiders x2 - 80
Venoc Vipers x2 - 80
Marcu - 20
Isamu - 10

Very fast melee group. The idea is to grab all glyphs with spiders and overwhelm your opponent with Sujoah, Spiders and Vipers before they can implement their own strategy.

It would be a ton of fun. Sort of an all or nothing kind of army.

Re: Sujoah and/or the Fyorlag Spiders - what's your army ide

Hmm. This would probably be very risky, but fun.

3x Fyorlag Spiders 120
Sujoah 305
Nilfheim 490
Isamu 500

Re: Sujoah and/or the Fyorlag Spiders - what's your army ide

I had a similar army to the ones above in mind. I want more spiders, though, since they are pretty easily squished...

Sujoah 185
3x Fyorlag Spiders 120 (305)
Venoc Warlord 120 (425)
1xArmoc Vipers 65 (490)
Isamu 10 (500)

It is melee based, but with that speed on the spiders it could work (either way it would be fun to play).

Or blow the 500 pt. cap and get:

Sujoah 185
3x Fyorlag Spiders 120 (305)
Venoc Warlord 120 (425)
1x Armoc Vipers 65 (490)
3x Aubrien Archers 210 (700)

Aldin, that's pretty much exactly what I was thinking.

Oooooh man. Very fun. Very very fun. Nilfheim really compensates for Sujoah's lack of squad control in a way the spiders can't quite compare to. And those spiders can serve as somewhat of a screen for both the big baddies.

That looks like tons of fun. It seems you got most of the bases covered really. Squads, heroes, even range due to the flying/fast movement.

Edit: Sorry yagyuninja, that is the second time today I have posted so close to your time and commented on something very similar. I promise I'm not trying to rip off your thoughts.

That's the exact first army I thought of for these guys way back when we first saw them. I'd like to either see a beefy 10 point unique predator with a huge drawback or a 25 point common predator to round that army out even more nicely. (And I have customs for both of them because of this! )

Yeah, I think of Nilfheim whenever I see a new figure with a 5 in it. I think I ought to proxy that army soon. I'm still not sure what to make of the spiders, and I think that putting two 185 point heroes in a 500 point army is asking for trouble.
