So I was working on some list for the Speedmachine event at L&L, 25 pt MM/TC. And I kept hitting the short 2 point not a legal list.
First list I wanted to play with was my beloved caster eDoomy. Once you write down eDoomy you have to have Mulg and then I thought it would be fun to team him up with Rok. So thats 23 points leaving me with the dreaded troll 8 points. NO, I DO NOT consider 2 swamp trolls a option since I refuse to buy even 1(I hate the model that much, only beast I dont own). There is no 7 or 8 point beast, and while I would be fine with throwing in an Axer and calling it good, cant legally play 2 points down anymore.
I decided to come back to that list dilemma and try making a Gunnbjorn list(my favorite caster model sculpt wise, really wish they give him some rules help). So I started with Bomber, Blitzer, Implaler and I am back to 8 pts left because of tier 1 bonus. This time I can use a 2nd Blitzer if I owned one, just found it funny that I ended up with 8 points again purely by accident.
Anyway, just thought I would share so I could bring up the fact that we are the only Hordes Faction that has this problem. Every other faction has a good 8 pt beast, multiple 4 point beast and Legion has lessers which are great filler. Rant over, stepping off the soapbox. After some practice games I actually like Gunny in this format, Rockwall FTW (oh you dont have reach, no attacking my caster for you) and Def 19 from shooting is okay, when there isnt a ton of infantry that just ignores cover.
