So I'm putting together 2 35 point lists for an event on Monday. Thought I'd see what people thought.
Decided to go melee heavy and ranged heavy as my two options, as the meta favors more Warmachine players than Hordes.
Max Precursors +UA
Anastasia di Bray
Now before you ask, I don't currently own Rowdy nor do I have the cash to purchase him, so that's why I went with the Jacks I did. Thought the lancer might be useful for arcing rebuke onto some stuff.
Min Precursors and UA
Both should be fairly strong against either hordes or Warmachine. The Kara list specifically has a lot of anti-stealth options going on, and will probably be my go to list against the few Legion and Circle players in our meta. It's also pretty solid for dealing with slower lists. The Stryker list is more well rounded and oriented towards crushing the enemy army until they don't have anything left to block stryker's charge. Arcane shield on Stryker from jr and camped focus every turn means that stryker can stay pretty far up field against most lists and threaten a lot of the board.
