I didn't want to just keep adding on to my Arcanacon thread because the topic had changed so I've started a new one just about tweaking and practicing with eVayl and her theme force. There is so much potential there but she is unforgiving and I'm trying to get as much practice as I can get. I played a game against the old witch with pretty much all the good stuff in Khador yesterday and did alright. My list was
This list wams asmall tweak from previous lists trying to get another gun in there but retaining what I thought were other essentials. It did alright. A lot of things went badly due to my own mistakes. I got my legionnaires killed by winterguard because i put icy grip on his kayazy instead of them. My scythean bounced off behemoth. My angels got engaged by kayazy, but the repulsioned their way out and then failed to take out the spriggan.
But my ravagore had got old witch on fire, and then a stinger missile from the spawning vessel finished her off.
This got me really thinking about the lists. Even with the Black Frost Shard around, my scythean and angels were just not killy enough. Nothing in the list is really killy enough. But the one ravagore was a star. I also want to take BFS out because they are going to be in another tournament list I want to build. And I also want to see what she can do with typhon. I have wracked my brains trying to figure something out, but then it dawned on me. How about something a little different, taking harriers to meet the flying warbeast requirement!
Having a steadier more shooty approach will mean the legionnaires will be at a comparable speed to the rest of the army, there is more armour staying power in there, and i can still do annoying things with refuge and admonition on the heavy hitters. Spiny growth is a good animus for these kinds of beasts, and harriers can do solo removal for me, instead of wasting valuable shots or spells. Also cheap arc nodes.
What do you think?
