Hi guys, i was just wondering for making a jump from my 15 point list to 25, should i take another jack vs infantry *specifically either MoW bombers, IFP +UA, assault commandos with their WA, or 2 field guns with 2 mortar crews* for pIrusk. i'm running beast 09 so far, so just curious. i'll be fighting a merc army list thats running jack heavy, so yea. thanks!

Irusk tend to run 1 jack, maybe 2. His spell and feat benefit warriors more as he's an infantry caster.
What's your list so far ?

um, so far....
and thats at 15 points.
for the second jack i was thinking either decimator, destroyer, devastator, or spriggan.

It could work.
If you look at Irusk's spell list, he have ironflesh and battlelust, two very good spells that's infantry only. Great bears can benefit from that, but they tend to be high priority target, so most people play them as a counter charge unit.
Irusk is also somewhat squishy, so he could use the protection of some MoWs. Shock trooper can do the job well while covering his ***, if you're willing to play to their slow advancement pace. Ironfang pikemen also work well and can cover your great bears. Because you'd really rather your opponent charge or get distracted by IFPs instead of trying to kill the bears.
You could try IFP(min)+UA and a mortar, that adds to 10 points and adds decent versatility in terms of number of attacks and some infantry clearing. Or you could try kayazy(min)+UA, same thing, but they handle infantry better, since you have enough heavy hitters already.

yea, i was kinda leaning towards the IFP+UA, but i kinda like the idea of fielding some sort of field artillery, either in the form of a jack, which could take some pressure off beast 09 as now there are 2 jacks that can tear them a new one, or MoW bombadier status or the mortar and field guns.
I guess i'm trying to get some balance since so far my initial list is quite the heavy hitter in melee. kayazy assassins seem sick though, so they might be a maybe for assassination runs.
and then assault kommandos, they just seem freaking fun to field *and really annoying for opponents to deal with* with their new WA, i kinda wanna see how their flamethrower will do.
and most likely my main opponent's list will be
gorten battle box + thor + rockram + brun and lug
at 25 points.
