My 25pt Lists (Just Started and Models come in Tuesday) and would like critiques!!!
Hi guys i'm starting out with Circle because in Table Top war gaming i have always enjoyed the armies with the most maneuverability which seems to be Circles cup o' tea. so i thought i'd get some reality checks (maybe even some positive reinforcement for getting something right) on what i've come up with so far.
so her it is!
i have three caster options:
eKaya and Laris (favorite caster i believe)
Grayle the Farstrider
and currently i'll have these War Beasts:
1x Feral or Pureblood depending
and will soon be adding a Stalker
Unit wise i have:
Minimum unit of Nyss Hunters (soon to be full once game store can order two of the blister of 2)
1x Shifting Stones
1x Swamp Gobber Bellows Crew
Laris fielded as a War Wolf if not useing eKaya...
and would like to pick up Lanyssa Ryssyl (or a Blackclad Wayfarer though would prefer Nyss chick)
and ordering a Reeve Hunter
and would also love to pick up Brun Cragback and Lug for some fun and because i love the models.
so at 25pts i would like to field:
25pt pKaya List
~ 2x Argus 8
~ Feral Warpwolf 9
~ 10 nyss hunters (useing proxies until i can order the 4 extras i need) 10
~ Shifting Stones 2
~ Lanyssa Ryssyl (again proxy until i can actually order her) 2
~ Reeve Hunter 2
~ War wolf (aka Laris) 1
25pt eKaya List (actually going to be playing this one till i get the hang of circle)
~ eKaya and Laris -3
~ 2x Argus 8
~ Feral warpwolf 9
~ Min unit of Nyss Hunters
~ Swamp Gobber Bellows Crew (supporting Nyss cause i had an extra point)
and finally 25pt Grayle the Farstrider List
~ Grayle -6
~ 2x Argus 9
~ Feral warpwolf (until i can get the Stalker in) 9
~ Full unit of Nyss Hunters 10
~ Shifting Stones 2
~ Swamp Gobber Bellows Crew 1
~ War Wolf 1
(Might Switch the Gobbers and War Wolf for Lysanna Ryssel)
Please feel free to critique the crap out of all 3 lists and let me know if i got anything right =D
They'll all play fine as is. But just some ideas:

This will help capitalize on your two Reeve Hunters, while Lanyssa might be more versatile the War Wolves have good synergy with each other from gang fighter, are medium based so can't be trampled over, and can charge out of activation from the Reeve Hunters.
This gives you more damage output. Watch out for frenzy though.
If you get the stalker I'd swap:
-1x War Wolf, -1xFeral, +1x Stalker,
Works well enough. Eventually might want to swap the Feral and Gobbers for the Stalker, as the gobbers only really help the Nyss and the Nyss are too fast for them.
Then of course,
Hmm.... A couple of different things you can do here, but I'd probably do this one:
-1x Shifting Stones
+1x Reeve Hunter
Then if you have the model:
-1 Swamp Gobbers
But it really just depends on your play style. The shifting stones are good at teleporting/healing/removing fury/getting in the way. Of those I use them to get in the way most often, followed by teleporting, then healing. Most of the time I don't have to use them to remove fury. The Reeve Hunter is good at killing things and the war wolves are good for their points, or rather 'point' I suppose.

Thanks Manifold i will def look into trying your suggestions later today at the LGS and see how it goes, Grayle has taken over as my favorite caster and i have noticed that the Nyss leave the Gobbers behind and they are left creating random clouds that occasionally do something, although i'm now considering using them to protect my Beasts as with Awareness i can charge through the cloud they make with no penalty and my opponent most often can not (damn you legion!!!!), but find i would usually spend the Fury elsewhere like on gallows or boosting or buying more attacks.
