35p pStryker. Need feedback.
Hello all. This is the first list that I am posting here. I would like to say that I am a bit new in regards to Warmachine/Hordes. I have plenty of models but I'm no good at tactics. I mostly play against Khador and Skorne and quite honestly I am tired of getting my face punched in every time. Anyway here goes:
-Stormblade UA (-3)
Arcane Tempest Gun Mages (-6)
-ATGM UA (-2)
I decided to go back to Stryker after messing around with other casters (mainly p/e Nemo) because I would like to just go back to the basics. He seems like a good place to start. I have done a bit of reading and have heard the ATGM UA with a Defender is pretty good. Not to mention I haven't tried them out yet. My usual opponents are pretty scared of Stormblades so I figured why not include them and a Stormclad for a bit of intimidation. I do admit I feel a bit naked without a JMW or a Squire though. Should I seriously include one of them? Or is the list fine as is? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
If you really want a Squire or Jr, I would drop the Defender for a Hunter and just add them (and a Stormsmith or Stormgunner if Squire)
I like the list, it has the basics to deal with most threats.
Looks good! Stormclads are scary and hurt my face most of the time. ^_~
Here is a question to the peanut gallery -- In the original poster's list, what, in your opinion would be more worthwhile... Dropping the Stormblade UA and buying a Squire, or keeping the original list unchanged?
Destroyer of Worlds
Stormclad is great, but so is Rowdy. Personally, I'd switch the two (it's not like you'll be getting more focus out of keeping the Stormclad, as Rowdy runs/charges for free.) Then, I'd most likely debate the need for a Lancer. They're good, don't get me wrong, and I like arc'ing EQ... but that's 6 points... with the 1 you'd save from switching to Rowdy, you can have 7 points... which could get you your JWC, Squire, and Arlan.
Squire = Nice for CTRL & more focus.
JWC = AS on Rowdy the whole fight. Fully boosted Hand-cannon otherwise.
Arlan = Power Booster on the Defender, who can then use fully boosted shots for potentially 4d6 + 15 POW.
Hmmm... it's a tough call...
Thanks guys! I tested out the original list. I really like the gun mages, the perfect answer for fighting off light infantry. It was still pretty odd not having Jr or Squire. bStyker puts up a pretty good argument though. I will just have to try it out!
