0-30% I agree that mercs are made to enhance our game, but I do not agree with taking up to 50% of our army as mercs. I do not feel that is not enhancing our game, that is replacing it with something else. For me if I take any mercs, its support solos like reinholdt, rhupert, and eiyrss. And the only merc unit I own is Aiyana and Holt, but they play more like solos anyway.
The arguement that X only worked because Y was a terrible player, or any form of this assertion, is never a valid point in forum discussion and should thus be ignored.
It stops feeling like cygnar when I play Constance and realize I'm happier with highborn.
If a list with only cygnar caster & jacks works well then it feels fine. I will never understand this recent mercenary phobia; If you can hire a merc and he's the best man for the job then you owe it to yourself to take him and play your best.
Maybe 10 pts in 35? If I use them at all...I'm mostly playing all jack Kraye lists with the only unit being Rangers
Almost quit Cygnar on 13.12.2012- changed my mind
Kraye freak- Run & Gun... Charger CAN be useful
Dais, not so much phobia as disgust at their apparently required ubiquity. I don't mind mercs, I just don't like being told I have to use them, and I don't like them being considered easily better than any in faction infantry choices.
This thread was just to consider the subjective point at which a Cygnar list filling with mercs stops feeling like cygnar. Irrerespective of validity of any of the units/jacks/solos/warcasters involved.
Nice signature, btw.
