First Lord Arbiter Hexeris comp list
Am taking the following 50pt list to my fist comp playing Hordes, was wondering if people could recommend what to take as reserves with it.
Thanks for all replies in advance.
Lord Arbiter Hexeris *6
Basalisk Krea (4)
Bronzeback Titan (10)
Titan Gladiator (8)
Aptimus Marketh (3)
Cataphract Arcuarii full unit (9)
Gatormen full unit (9)
Nihilators full unit (8)
Paingiver Task Master (2)
Nihilators will run forward to deny ground and supply Marketh with souls.
Bronzeback will be bonded for spell slinging.
Any help suggesting reserves will be greatly appreciated. Only unit i don't own is Slingers but can buy if needed.
Another beast perhaps?
To be honest - you are very beast light for 50pts... I can see you don't want to go with Beast Handlers (for the love of god, why!!?) - but realistically, the best way to fight Hordes is to surgically remove their beasts... This generally plays out in the form of heavy trades. There is nothing in your list that hits hard enough to mitigate that, so this means one of your heavies will generally go down early (most likely the BB since he is your Arc node?), leaving you with a Glad you can't really afford to commit with, and the Krea.
Alternatively maybe swap the Acuarii into a Reinforcement role, and use the 9pts to get something like the Archidon and min Beast Handlers?
Sprint works a treat with the BB and/or Hexeris. Allowing them to move forward and kill stuff and then retreat slightly... enough at least to potentially mitigate the trading of pieces inherent in the game at a top level.
Just a thought.
