View Full Version : Beginner Strategies
01-14-2010, 08:59 PM
I am new to Hordes and have been playing Legion for a few weeks now. I think I am doing alright learning our models' abilities and basic game play. The problem I am having is that I don't know what other armies are capable of. I usually lose to some trick or ability I never knew was coming. So, I am here to ask the Legion vets for intel on the other factions and basic strategies. My next game (25pts.) is against Cryx, so any tips versus them would be much appreciated.

More specific questions would be helpful so we can direct our help more efficiently.
Cryx has a few focusses in Mk2 that you should be aware of.
They "debuff" your stuff to make it easier for them to kill you.
They have loads of cheap zombie infantry.
They kill infantry very efficiently
They can still arc spells to kill your warlock or assist in a kill
They have a new emphasis on delivering a helljack to kill your warlock.
Make sure you have efficient infantry killing ability in your army. You shoudl plan to have to beat high DEF on the enemy warjacks, but beating high ARM is less important. You should have contingencies for if your key pieces are debuffed or straight out killed early. Expect to be outnumbered and flanked. Thankfully the don't really have the speed advantage on us. Were as fast or faster than them, and our shooting is certainly superior. If they go for their cheap helljacks you're going to feel like you're one against two, watch for the counterattack. Try take out half their force with shooting before closing. If they bring their more expensive character warjacks, then you're about to get a lesson in what a REAL killing machine is. Sorry about that.
