I used this list against cryx but got pretty much stomped (mostly because of pgaspy's feat. afther that it seemed like i could come back but a bile thrall killed most of my remaining infatry, and I think breath of corruption could have done similar damage).
It just seems like he had so many anti-infantry stuff that I couldn't really move them around much (some bad deployment on my part didn't help, either) and if i did, they would definitely pretty much all die next turn.
so how do you play against strong anti-infantry lists? do you forget about shield wall on the halbs (to counteract purge + breath of corruption) or do you keep them in groups of 2 or 3 so they benefit from ARM 18 against single shots/pgaspy-feat-like things?
I went with moving them up in groups of 2 and keep them far appart, which protected most of them against pgaspy feat (the MHSF were wiped out for all but 2) but then a didn't manage to kill all of the biles and the surviving one just purged 80% of my remaining halbs.
as for MHSF, should I spread them out really far? (i.e. 2 groups of 5 and the UA in the middle of the 2 to allow them to stand really far appart, allowing them to go after arc nodes (which they just can't hit...))
also, against tough characters like pgaspy, should I go for assassination or attrition? I didn't see much of a chance for assassination, but If I think about attrition I don't see how I could win that. (mainly because of his arc nodes + anti-infantry)
I guess the arc nodes are also one of the bigger problems, how do I take them out the best? ghost snipers? (I used eiryss against one and tried to engage the other but that only delayed the doom by a turn)
Should I change my list a bit? (e.g. drop soulless, drop MHSF to min and get something else for the points, such as 2MHA, Ghost Snipers or a Thane to take out the arc nodes?) (In the end, though, I think my list is fine and that I just have to improve my play somehow. but If I can do something list-wise that would still help (and it might make the list more all-comer for when I meet hordes))
(kk, enough random rambling^^)
