So I've been facing Kaelyssa and a full unit of MHSF with UA during this Journeyman league. At 25pts I had a lot of trouble countering a 12" shooty unit that sees through everything and ignores buffs. I should be better at 35pts this week, but am still looking to figure out what we mercs have to counter them. I am playing a Highborn Bart list.
I'll have more Halberdiers this week and doing a simple run up to engage seems like the simplest, but I need to have a lot of bodies or some good luck to survive long enough to do this. He can easily spread them out to avoid my Mariner's cannon, but I could take a Mule marshalled to the ATGM+UA.
The ATGM might help now that I have the UA, but they still die more quickly than the MHSF. I was also thinking 2 Mariners with Broadsides on the first/second turn should cover them in AOEs pretty well. I thought about Herne and Johhne for extra AOEs too, but I can't see them surviving to get close enough to shoot.
Anyone have any other ideas for Bart?
