The Book of Red Ants of Aunstrom

The Book of Red Ants of Aunstrom

Soldiers of Valhalla

Printer-Friendly PDF

Basic Side Card:
Spoiler Alert!

The figures used for this unit are Dungeon Crawler Minis figures from the Omens set. The name of the figure is Giant Ant.

Character Bio: With the alliance dissolved and Valkrill's forces spreading death and destruction through the lands, Einar looked to neighboring lands to gather fresh troops. Einar's empire had long held an uneasy peace with the Red Queen and her kingdom of giant ants in Aunstrom. Some have said that the Red Queen was a normal queen ant that once drank from a wellspring; its magic greatly increased both her size and her intelligence. Her offspring are the size of wolves and unusually intelligent, and have proven to be a formidable force on the battlefield. The Queen herself has learned to speak in Kyrie tongues, and knows of the destruction that Utgar has brought to lands like Anund.

Re: The Book of Red Ants of Aunstrom

Should I get a fifth squad of ants?

That aside, what about an army consisting of
Red Ants x5
Marcus Decimus Gallus
Arashara Goshiri
500 pts

It's lacking range, but hopefully Arashara can help make up for that with shifting sands to reposition, and what better unit to swap with than a 10 point Red Ant?

Re: The Book of Red Ants of Aunstrom

I'd prefer switching Arashara for Kaemon and Raelin, or something similar.

3x Red Ants 120
2x Romans 220
MDG 320
MBS 370
Kaemon 490
Isamu 500

Would be another option.

I see there should be a link to the .pdf, but there is no link there. Is the .pdf version still being worked on?

Arashara is rarely worth using without a bonding squad, and she's especially worthless for an army of (almost) nothing but ants. That's just a whole lot of nothing you're wasting turns on most of the time. Even if you try to shift Raelin or something into a vulnerable spot, it's still too slow and too telegraphed to really matter the vast majority of the time.

Re: The Book of Red Ants of Aunstrom

The Giant Ant miniature for this is quite expensive. Even just a minimal 3 squads would cost in the $40 range, plus shipping (if anybody still had them in stock). Ordering directly from DungeonCrawler.com would cost $120 unpainted or $192 painted, since the Giant Ant only comes in a set with a raven, a coffin, and a dog.

At first it seemed that we could repaint some of the black ants that C3V is using, but I've read that they are rubbery and don't take paint well.

Were these things lots cheaper and more plentiful when this unit went into testing? Or does the SoV selection process not assess pricing/availability in the same way that C3G does? I was pretty excited when I saw the card, but the minis not being realistically obtainable is quite a downer.

Re: The Book of Red Ants of Aunstrom

They were much more available when this unit was submitted. Unfortunately, that company has gone through some hard times recently, as far as I can tell. They cancelled their last planned line at the last minute for no reason. I don't know what is going on with the company, but it isn't good.

Re: The Book of Red Ants of Aunstrom

Auggies had literally thousands when the unit was submitted (two years ago). Many unpainted, but lots painted too.

Re: The Book of Red Ants of Aunstrom

Is there a cost efficient way to get the miniatures for this unit? You only get one ant for $16 in the"Omens" set. That seems awful.

Edit: I know about the C3V ant sale, just wondering why those miniatures were not used initially if their availability is so much better.

Live HS record: 4-2 2nd place after one event

Re: The Book of Red Ants of Aunstrom

Maybe @dungeoncrawler could help us out?

We would love if you produced a bunch of the Giant Ants. Like several hundred. Is that a possibility?

But you get just as many pugs, coffins, and ravens when you purchase the ants. It's only a matter of time until SoV/C3V turns those into squads.

It's nothing new that the figures have blown up in price/shrunk in availability since they were first announced/proposed to the SoV. I've taken to just scouring the world for worthy proxies, and I've saved a nice chunk of change.

Handle origin: I used to film comedy skits with my friends. I didn't want any cursing in them, so I made up new insults, like "dendrik". Then Sir Denrick came out, and the rest is history.
