I wanted to make a pCaine army using boomhowler and company as a tough infantry screen. I try to play pCaine as a support caster (I mean look at his spell list) and I figured boomhowler and company would benefit greatly from what Caine has to offer.
The basic idea is that boomhowler receives blur on turns one and two to buff their defense on the approach in addition to using Murdoch's go to ground ability to buff it even higher against shooting and magic. On turn three or whenever the opportunity arrases. Caine casts snipe and deadeye on Boomhowler and they assault using the order from Murdoch. In addition, If I can get a well placed thunderstrike on the enemy caster or a jack or model near him/her to knock them down I can assault and fire away with boomhowler with several pow 12's.
pCaine - 6
^Ol' Rowdy (for the free run and charge)
Boomhowler and Company (full unit) +9
Murdoch + 2
Gunmages (full unit) +6
Gunmage UA +2
^Marshalled Defender +9
Strangeways (extra focus to the defender and general repair)
I have stealth mitigation, plenty of range, a melee beatstick, a tarpit unit. I figured I covered all my bases. Anyone have thoughts or suggestions? Boomhowler and pCaine are the only models I am hell bent on using.
