Newish player need advise on 35pt eNemo
I have played a few games, but not overly experienced. I love playing eNemo and was looking to make a 35pt list.
This is what I came up with.
Sylys Wyshnalyrr 2pts
Stormguard (Leader+5) 6pts
Black 13th 4pts
Journeyman Warcaster 3pts
Stormsmith Stormcaller x3 3pts
Stormsmith Stormtower 2pts
One of the reasons for this list is that I already have alot of the mini's but I would like some feedback. I tend to play 2v2 (sometimes 3v3) against anything including Khador, Protectorate, Cryx, Circle and Trollbloods (hordes).
Id normally run Junior with the Charger (Edit)and place Arcane Shield on the Stormguards. I don't take squire for eNemo because the only benefit over Sylys Wyshnalyrr is the extended command radius.
If I'm only up against Horde Armies I tend to drop the Stormsmiths (as disruption does nothing) and take another Charger and Reinholdt.

While taking another Charger certainly wouldn't hurt, those Stormsmiths are pretty amazing with eNemo's Elite Cadre bonus. Personally, if I bring eNemo, I'm bringing 3 of 'em. (Or typically more since I tend to play his Theme list.)
Since I'm not really sure what kind of advice you're looking for, the best I can do is critique it as is. Here's a few things that caught my eye:
1) Min Stormguard is a no-no in my book. Bite the bullet and max'em out.
2) JWC would probably hit up the Stormguard with Arcane Shield, correct? Is it necessary if you put Polarity Shield on them?
3) B13 are great models, but really you bring them for anti-stealth and magestorm. Here, they're not needed as much since Stormcallers ignore stealth, and can take out multiple models as well. The B13 are never points that are poorly spent, but 4 points here could mean a lot.
4) Sylys is a good choice here. Definitely on par with the Squire in any case.
...I think the list overall looks fine. If you really wanted to bring in the Stormguard I'd drop the JWC. Really, the difference between ARM 15 and 18 on the Stormguard probably won't save the lives of 4 of them, and so you may as well have 4 more models for 3 points. It also makes them capable of dealing damage back and a capable screen if hit with eNemo's Polarity Shield upkeep. 6 models doesn't cut it, IMO.
At that point, I'd most likely drop the B13 for another Charger, so that you've got a longer ranged assassination vector. 4 Fully boosted POW 12s at threat range 21" is effective at taking down Warcasters. I know it has made for a 2nd turn victory for me before. The B13 can certainly assassinate, but typically only from about 14-16" away.
Finally, I'd consider swapping the Hammersmith for an Ironclad, simply because Ironclads have never really let me down, whereas Hammersmiths frequently do. Too many bad experiences with MAT 6 missing attacks. You can then use that last point to bring Reinholt for an additional shot on your decent gun if need be, or for double-checking ranges.
Here's my proposed list:
Stormguard (max) (9)
Stormsmiths x 3 (3)
Storm Tower (2)

That's great, thanks bStyker.
I know the 6 MAT on the Hammersmith can be problematic, but on a feat turn with Lightning Shroud (or Fail Safe late in the game) he has literally destroyed enemy armies for me. Saying that it is a big Focus sink outside of eNemo's feat.
I haven;t used the Stormgaurd before, but I like what Ive read about them. However, if I was to drop them I wouldn't lose sleep over it.
