Tier lists

Post by Fighting Gopher » Fri Apr 12, 2013 8:03 pm

I have a small question in regards to tier lists. Are tier lists okay anytime, or do you need your opponents permission for them? So if I am playing in a 50 point tournament, can I use a 50 point tier list?
Warhammer 40K - 41,000 points
Warhammer Fantasy - 27000 wounds (I'm guessing)
Flames of War - 6000 points
Warmachine Cryx - 100 points
Hordes Circle - 240 points

in the rule book it says you can use them anytime, but only in a army with 1 warcaster/warlock. also consider that certain factions like mercs basically have to field a tier list.
Army - Wins/Losses:
Trollbloods - 22/2
Mercenaries - 4/0
Cygnar - 3/1

They aren't necessarily over-powered, so don't feel bad about using them. The bonuses are quite reasonable, if a little weak.

Awesome, thanks for the help. I find that a couple of my armies are hitting the tier lists just with their normal lists so I'm glad to know this.
Warhammer 40K - 41,000 points
Warhammer Fantasy - 27000 wounds (I'm guessing)
Flames of War - 6000 points
Warmachine Cryx - 100 points
Hordes Circle - 240 points

additionally, the use of tiers come at the expense of not being able to use other army models/units/character warnouns. So there's a trade off. Some tiers are better then others, and some are just like "doubleuteaeff?"
