Need some help for a friend
Hi, I'm usually a Skorne/Legion player, but I have a friend who wants to start Cryx and I was wondering what the best 50 point list would be out of the figs we have at our disposal. I'd like to use as many models I have as possible, but troop-wise the picking appear pretty slim. Any suggestions or comments would be very appreciated. Number of models is very random, so i realize filling out units is probably a given.
Bane Thrall (6)
Satyxis Raiders (8)
Revenant crew (14 including 2 leaders)
It's not optimal, but should be a decent list:
full Satyxis Raiders with Witch and Captain (you'll have to get these) 12
min Bane Thralls 5
Warwitch Siren (get it and love it) 2
That should get you decent army for minimal cost. You could switch out the Banes and Siren for a Reaper, but I think you're already stretched thin for focus, with the Leviathan in there. The list would probably work better with the Withershadow Combine instead of the Banes, but you don't have those.
Skarre will probably use all of her focus on most turns, since the Leviathan ideally wants 3 and DJ and the Harrower want to wreck face, leaving you little to cast spells. At least that's been my experience whenever I played Skarre with 2 jacks on top of a Leviathan.
I suggest you start looking for spare Bane Thrall and Satyxis Raider blisters to fill out the units, since both of these have been repacked as a 10-man unit and it will be harder to find any blisters. You could also keep the minimum Banes a extra for Tartarus/pGoreshare and just get a full unit (eventually).

Thanks for the input, very appreciated.
Is Bane Thrall UA worth the money?

Yes, very much so. It's what makes the unit so good.

Thanks and LOL. We just found the Bane Thrall Lord Tartus.
I wanted to add something to my previous comment, but the internet is playing up:
I didn't add the UA and/or Tartarus, because I don't think you need Banes with Skarre, she works well with jacks and Satyxis, so I usually play her as such. The list had 5 points to spend and Bane Thralls were available
Also, I generally think it's better to add the UA than to max out the unit. You only lose one attack, but gain a MAT on 2 of them and the tough and shake effect are invaluable.
