I have been playing a lot of Damiano lately. I started off with the tier list. After playing a couple of games at 35 and 50 I quickly found that it had several weaknesses. Im not a fan of steelhead riflemen, if they get a UA in the future Ill look at them again with fresh eyes. Range 10 is just short enough to not be effective. The tier list also has limited ways of dealing with stealth models and has no way of granting pathfinder.
After moving away from the tier list I looked at the highborn contract. As it stands I have found units, jacks and solos that I love with him. I like the gun mages, the steelhead cavalry and halberdiers. Rocinante and the mule are both fantastic. I think Wyshnalyrr really helps him out. Rhupert went in right away.
I still want to try Alexia (both prime and epic) and see how she does. I'm curious if anyone has had luck with eAlexia in the middle of halberdiers with her having surefoot getting up in the business making thralls. It might just be a pipe dream.....
The one real question I have is designing a list that makes use of Warpath. In every game that I have played I have yet to cast Warpath. Between deadeye, allocation, and upkeeping I rarely have the FOCUS to cast warpath. Additionally, I usually just take one jack in Damiano's Battlegroup (rocinante). The mule is always marshalled to the gun mages (shocking I know). Is there a build that makes use of Warpath? I see Gun mages as a good tool to trigger it but what jacks do u take? Do you still want the Halberdier tar pit?
Im just hoping someone has a warpath list at 35 or 50 and can explain how it works. Warpath has been the spell I have "crossed off" his spell card until now.
