Esenwein 505 pt. Army

How would this do, and how would I efectivly play it, in waves or all together?
For example would I send out Iskra and use her and retchets until they're dead then send shades ect.

Cyprien 150
Sonya 195
Iskra 245
Retchets 295
Shades 395
Hounds 485
Marcu 505

He shoots... and the airborne elite drop just in time to save the goal!

Did you make the army to fill the points or the points based on the army?

I'd say either use 2 squads of Shades and drop Marcu, or 2 squads of Hounds. Personally, I'm a fan of the hounds so I say go with them.

Iskra + Retchets can be a good way to open up a game; devastating if they work but be prepared to retreat if they don't show up. I've had terrible luck, never successfully summoning the Retchets before Iskra bit it (although my buddy managed to lethal sting my Silver Surfer in turn #2 once).

My preference is to engage with the hounds first though. The other big issue here is that you have no range, so even if you do tie up a bunch of units with the hounds (for example), you don't have anyone that can shoot the prey.

That having been said, I think this army would be a blast to play. Enjoy!

Re: Esenwein 505 pt. Army

505 points hmm... Try this.

Cyprien 150
Sonya 195
Iskra 245
Rechets 295
3x Stingers 475
Marcu 495
Isamu 505

or to make it a flat 500 use a Dumetef Guard instead of Marcu and Isamu.

Re: Esenwein 505 pt. Army

Ok, if I made it into a 550 pt army pulling out the hounds i'd have 100 points, I'm lacking range what 100 point ranged hero/squad would best compliment my undead coolio(and not that great) army

Svarris
KMA
Omnicrons
Microcorp
MWs and MBS
or screw range and crixus or some melee guy

Cyprien with his stealth flying of 8 is as good as any ranged figure. Or so I'm told...

Cyprien with Sonya is just about cheating. Rolling an 16 just about kills any figure and with life drain, if cyprien took any wounds, they are basically healed. With stealth flying and 8 move, it is hard to catch Cyprien so he can escape from an assault gone bad without taking too much damage. He is a awesome hero killer because once my friend took out my other friend's sir gilbert in one turn and he was without movement bonus for the rest of the game.
