Re: Picking a faction Cygnar vs Skorne

Cygnar is a combined arms faction. When you build a list, you think about certain situations and build groups to do or deal with them. From example, a tarpit unit, how to deal with someone's tarpit unit, how to deal with stealth solos, how to deal with heavies, etc. it's also a faction that relies o...

Re: Trollblood vs Cygnar

I would suggest Fennblades plus the UA and an Earthborn. Both will serve you well in any troll list you make with any of the casters in the Troll lineup.

Re: Proper feed & care of your Doom Reavers

It's more about your tactics. If someone want the Doom Reavers dead, they'll be dead. They don't have the stats to survive much attention. So, I use them as a second wave. Bring them in behind your Kayazis or Uhlans or something else fast and threatening. I don't bother with the UA. A knocked down m...

Re: Starting cryx

There's a lot of good advice in this thread. But, try not to expand too fast. There are a lot of rules and tactics intermingling here and you do not want to get overwhelmed. Play the battle box until you can lock down all the rules associated with them. Then add a solo or two. Warwitch Sirens and Pi...

Re: Tempest Blazers

Why yes they are. They are a little fragile, but can really put out a hurtin'. Throw in Derragh for some extra fun. They have 2 attacks plus the mount. I run two full units in my Witch Coven tier list.

Re: Help with Strategy - 50 pts Khador

That's not entirely true. The have become an optional artifice that a Tournament Organiser can add to the scenarios. I know I will be using them in ones I run. And if you participate in out of town tourneys, they may come up. So, it is a good idea to be ready.

Re: Old * of Khador List: 35 points.

Who is saying Old Witch isn't a tourney caster? She's only one of he best. It's even debatable as to whether or not she's Khador's top caster. As to your list, it is solid. My only concern would be the Destoyer and Kell. It is bombards you want, for the same points as the Destroyer, you could have a...

Re: Legion Units

In all the years I've been playing Legion, I really only ever use Raptors and legionnaires. Legionnaires are cheap and Raptors are amazing and cheap at 10 points. All others are situational at best and usually not worth another beast.

Re: Help with Strategy - 50 pts Khador

The big thing about SR 2013 is that you can score more control points by "dominating" or using your caster to take objectives, flags, and zones. So, beefy casters are going to be out in force. My only concern for the OPs list is that it is very slow. You need to get into those control area ASAP. Als...

Re: New

Nothing right now. Build the battlebox and play a lot of games with it until you become very familiar with the mechanics of the game. Don't go making this needlessly complex until you are ready. The amount of special rules and interactions can become overwhelming if you don't have a solid base of kn...

Re: Starting my first army

You may also want to find some local players and ask to watch/participate in some games to see if Ret is truly the faction you want to play. Most players would be willing to hook you up with a battle box army to try out. That way you won't waste time and money on a faction you find out you don't like.

Re: Low strategy army or build?

I would disagree with that. Some casters are more strait forward than others, but all factions have a lot of strategy involvesd. The Butcher plays very differently than the Old Witch. And every faction has situations like this. My advice would be to pick a faction that she likes to paint and then st...

Re: Circle help

How many games have you played with this stuff? I ask because you do not want to go buy a bunch of stuff that does not fit your play style. My suggestion would be to play as many game as it takes to figure that out first. If you're still dead set on buying some stuff, you could use a second set of s...

Re: Points and building lists

Now we're throwing too much at him. Just play Sorcha and the 'jacks first. You need to focus on the basics. Pay close attention to order of activation. Who needs to go and in what order to accomplish whatever you want. You're Pressganger or other helpful locals can fill you in on the rest of the det...
