View Full Version : What to get next...
01-06-2010, 08:17 AM
So, I had some issues on the ol' Bartertown where I ended up with a partial army for Khador instead of a full army...but I digress...
Here is what I ended up with:
Man-o-War Shocktrooper x1 (yes, just 1!)
I clearly have no jacks to use with Karchev and no warcaster to lead the infantry!
So I ask you: What do I get next?!
What warcasters can make good use of the infantry I have? What jacks should I get to supplement this stuff? Should I just get the Sorcha box and go from there?
Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Proxy! Finding the casters you like will have the greatest impact on how you play and what you'll want to field.
Right now the most popular things that you don't have seem to be Butcher, Beast09, Kodiaks, and a fully tricked out Winterguard unit with UA and Kovnik Joe.
If you like Drakhuns, the single Shocktrooper you have could be the dismount option.

Karchev is entertaining with the kommandos as eruption targets.
As for jacks for Karchev it depends, do you want to do more of a gunboat or a smashy smashy?
Gunboat you need The Behemoth and Destroyers, or add a spriggan simply for flare and an extra grenade.
Smashy smashy, Kodiaks, Bezerkers, Drago are all insane with him. Sprigan or Beast for reach. Marauders are entertaining. Unearthly Rage with Charging Combo slam on feat turn made a few peoples faces turn green.

I am getting the Old Witch, full IFP with UA, full Demo Corps, a MoW Kovnik, a Kodiak, and Greylords in a trade. Does that help much? I know I'll need more jacks.

Koldun Lord, all the way.
Cheap $$ wise, cheap points wise, great model, and he offers awesome utility to any army. He's been ever present in my armies ever since Mk. II Beta.
Also, there is no warjack in the game as entertaining as the Devastator, though for him to truly shine, you'll want Vlad1 or Butcher1 for maximum carnage. :D
Edit: More to the OP's point - I'd pick up one or two of the plastic boxes that come out in two weeks, and proxy all the different warjack options. Then, slap on whatever arms you like best! I personally find the Juggernaut wonderfully effective for the price, and the Destroyer is a staple for Khador. Can't go wrong with those two.

Thanks for the great advice! I didn't realize the plastics were coming so soon!

Karchev loves Koldun Lord because one free focus to a jack with Unearthly Rage on is huge.
Juggernaut and Destroyer are your workhorse blue collar jacks. Spriggan, Behemoth and Beast 09 are flashier, more expensive options. But really all the jacks are great - you just get what you pay for (talking about Berserker here).
Having Mechaniks and Ogrun Bokur around increases Karchev's continual effectiveness exponentially.
