Over on my Blog I'm stuck regarding which models I should take to GenCon. Like last year, I am traveling a long way, and have to travel lighter than normal (family reasons). I got room for a handful of 'jacks and about 30 warrior models.
Any advice what units/'jacks/solos are absolutely essential? I'm thinking I'll bring Sorcha, Strak, and Vlad. Other Warcasters need to make the cut. I also expect to bring a unit of Doomies and widowmakers - but after that, I'm not sure.
The good thing is that I will be playing with my buddies and in friendly pickup games, so swinging the occasional "counts as" probably isnt a deal-breaker. Its the reason I am only bringing one of each of the Warcasters I note above - my buddies wont care if I say during one game that the model is pVlad and in another game he is eVlad (f'rex). That said, even when I do counts-as models, I really strongly prefer they at least look a little bit like the model they are replacing.
So, thoughts? Any seasoned tourney players or travelers out there that want to remind me not to forget a particular model(s)?
