495 point armies

Might as well start early like last year!

Here is my idea-

10 Reg x3 225
Marcus 325
AE 435
Darrak 495

The AE and 10th all get an extra move from Marcus, and Marcus can help the 10th pod. Darrak for cleanup

This army will probably have a hard time against rats and Q9, unless you can get some lucky grenades in early.

It might be best to have the 10th screen rats and have one 10th squad plus the AE shooting from behind with Marcus. A good thing is the AE can stay out of Queglix's range.

Re: 495 point armies

Since treasure glyphs are gonna be used I figure I'm gonna have some fun with Heirloom.

I'll be running something along the lines of:

Raelin -80
Krug -120
Swog Rider x 3 -75
Arrow Gruts x 3 - 120
Heirloom - 90
Isamu - 10

Re: 495 point armies

I've got all kinds of ideas swimming around in my head for this one...

Dund - 110
Agent Skahen - 230
Raelin - 310
Marro Stingers x3 - 490, 13 hexes

Skahen is used early to get Dund into position and bring the enemy to you. Once they're in range of Dund, switch to the Stingers and try to get Crippling Gaze on OM1. If it hits, Drain the crap out of the Stingers and blow stuff up. If it doesn't hit, the Stingers can still blow stuff up.

Major Q9 - 180
Raelin - 260
10th Regiment x3 - 485
Isamu - 495, 16 hexes

Standard cheese that I probably won't play.

Kaemon Awa - 120
Raelin - 200
Krav Maga Agents / Iron Golem / Kozuke - 300
Tagawa Samurai Archers x3 - 495, 14 hexes

I had a weird itch to play Samurai Archers and thought up this army. It seems like it sucks, though....

Iron Golem - 100
Ogre Warhulk x2 - 400
Saylind - 480
Isamu - 490, 8 hexes

Yeah - definitely not playing this

Yeah, I played that one at one Colorado event. I was glad because I needed all the cheese in my arsenal to take out Thanos/reavers and Stingers/Q10.

While I like this one more at 545, how about:

10 Isamu
80 Raelin
100 Iron Golem
120 Greenscale Warriors x2
185 Zelrig
495, 12 hexes

Re: 495 point armies

Here are probably some decent options:

I wear my sunglasses at knight
Knights x 3
Sir Gilbert
Raelin
Krav Maga Agents
495 points

Vampires Sting
Marro Stingers x 5
Sonya/Cyprien
495 points

Last but not least an army that isn't ultra competitive but would have some interesting decisions and could pull out some wins:

Vampires with Soul
3 x Warforged Soldiers
Zetacron
Sonya/Cyprien
495 points

Grenade lobbyist

Re: 495 point armies

See, this is what I do when I get bored in English: I put Roman Archers in everything.

Greenscale Warriors x2 -120
Braxas -330
Roman Archers x3 -495

Orrrrrrr...
Roman Legionnaires x3 -150
Marcus Decimus Gallus -250
Roman Archers x3 -415
ROTV Raelin -495

And just something else I came up with that was on the same sheet ( but it's a 595, not a 495)
Greenies x2 -120
Mimring -270
Krug -390
Arrow Gruts x3 -510
Swog Riders x3 -585
Isamu/Otonashi -595 (at 26 spaces)

Re: 495 point armies

Brad will probably either play this or a Cyp+Sonya+300 Points of range build:

Nilfheim - 185
Greenscales x3 - 365
Raelin - 445
Marro Warriors - 495, 16 hexes

I wouldn't be surprised to see phantazm21zero play something like this:

Othkurik / Sudema - 140
4th Mass x5 - 490, 22 hexes

Time Limit Tony likes to play Cyprien, Shades and Stingers together, so maybe:

Cyprien - 150
Shades of Bleakewoode - 250
Marro Stingers x4 - 490, 16 hexes

Kara is a big fan of Anubian Wolves, so maybe:

Raelin SotM - 120
Anubian Wolves x5 - 495, 16 hexes

Mechabeast and I are liable to play anything, since Mecha just played Zombies at GenCon. I keep wanting to use 10th Regiment x3 since it ends in 5, but the best thing I keep coming back to is Q9/Raelin, and I refuse to play Q9 again since I just played him at GenCon. I did think about this, though...

Brunak - 110
Raelin RotV - 190
Omnicron Repulsors x2 - 270
10th Regiment x3 - 495, 21 hexes

That would get Brunak and the Repulsors into a tourney army for me, and I've only ever played the 10th at a GenCon Win-a-Wave a couple of years ago. Of course, I've also kicked around Orcs (which I've never played in a tourney - Blades, Arrows or Heavies), Phantom Knights + something that compliments them, like TKN or 10th, or Elementals. Lastly, I've really been wanting to try a Spiders/Wyvern/Estivara army....

Wyvern x2 - 200
Estivara - 280
Spiders x5 - 480
Isamu - 490, 21 hexes

I've thought about dropping a Wyvern and Isamu here for the AE, or dropping a Spider squad and Isamu for the Marro Warriors.

Re: 495 point armies

I'm thinking

Greenscales x3 - 180
Nilfhelm x1 - 365
Marro Warriors x1 - 415

with either
2x Deathreavers - 495, screen the way for the Greenscales and Nilf allowing them to pick and choose who they want to attack

or

1x Raelin - 495 - Do a slow roll, keeping Raelin behind/beside Nilf, giving everyone but Raelin 6 defense.

Now through May 28th, the Louisville region is in desperate need of platelets - call the Red Cross if you are interested in donating!
