There's a 50 point, one list only Steamroller Tournament in a month in our club I'm going to attend.
There about sixteen players, three of them are Cygnarans with four Stormwalls (yes, one of them got two of those). So, that's a good chance to meet one or two of those colossals on the table.
I nearly got the whole merc range to choose from (still waiting for my two merc heavy warjacks kits plus the Rocinante upgrade). My favourite casters with my favourite contracts/tiers for those are (not necessarily in that order):
Ashlynn (Highborn), Gorten (Tier 4), Durgen (Highborn), McBain (4 Star) & Shae (Tier 4)
I've played also all of the other casters, but not so often.
Now I'm wrapping my head around a good allcomer list with a good stand vs. collossals, especially the Stormwall. Maybe I'm too psychical daunted, but nothing I came up with pleases me.
Sure, I want to deal with the colossal, so, I need heavy hitters, armor debuff and an upkeep eraser (yeah, eEiryss, I know), but I just can't decide on the complete arrangement of the merc menu. I fear that any warjack I could send against the Stormwall will get disrupted before it could do much damage, and infantry (even the Forgeguard) will die in or has to circumvent surpressing fire areas.
And casters like Ashlynn or Shae are seriously in danger to be fried alive.
I really would like to hear some good advice, thoughts, maybe some example lists for inspiration...
...or a kick in the a** from my fellow mercs for being such a wussy.
Thank you in advance for that...
