New to Circle, Is a ranged list viable?
So, I'm pretty new to Circle and have so far only gotten some games with the quick start rules on PP's site and watched some battle reports on the internet. So what I'm wondering about is whether playing a list that is mainly based on ranged attacks is a viable tactic in Circle.
That depends, I would say for the most part no. However, I did design a gun line list with eKrueger. With stormwall your guns out-threat almost every other gun in the game.
We have very few ways to buff ranged attacks, and the guns that we do have tend to fall in the 10-12" range category (not 14-16" like many of Cygnar and Khador's guns, for example). However, I think that it can be done with eKrueger. You will effectively have to use Gallows and TK to pull the enemy into range of your weapons, back strikes (via TK) to improve your accuracy, and Feat to force the enemy back if they engage you. Will Pagani is an incredibly successful Circle player, and I'm sure that I recall him discussing an eKrueger + 2x Wold Stalkers + Blood Trackers + Celestial Fulcrum army on here before. That's pretty much what you should be aiming for.
I'll see if I can find the discussion.
Found it! See post #13 in this thread:
The list looks quite Beast-light for a beginner though, so I probably wouldn't jump in at this level just yet, emmonno.
