I am currently pulling out some of my lesser used casters and units for a bit of fun and have decided to use the original gunslinger caster.
Here is what I am thinking of running and am looking for some thoughts.
Gunmages + UA
min Precursor knights + UA
full Trenchers + UA
basically the plan is to use trenchers as first strike (adv deploy (13)+ desperate pace (2)+ deadeye + snipe(4) + assualt (9) + gun (10)= 38inch threat range (hey look, they deploy 10 inches, I can shoot anything on the front line)
thus hopefully eliminating front line infantry before they can account for themselves.
this is followed by second turn attrition using remaining trenches + gun mages + rangers and Cain
thunderbolt (spell) + precursors + rowdy + defender + CRA/Arcane inferno are there for opponent heavy destruction/control
IF all goes according to plan, then a second or third turn feat should kill anything I've missed
I understand that stealth is a major counter to this army, however sniping gun mages should alleviate the problem.
the precursors are also on the table as a living shield to the squishy Cain.
