Fairly New player: My favorite 3 casters and lists looking for suggestions; 25-35pts
I have been playing warmachine on and off, stil not used to a lot of the special rules (like missing ALL my aiming bonuses from not moving in a game yesterday haha). I have decided that my favorite 3 casters are eNemo (Jack swarm), eHaley (Assassin), Sloan (Shooty). So far. I'm really competitive and I'm looking to make sure I have the units to make fairly "optimal" 25/35 point lists for the aforementioned casters/styles
eNemo list - ('Jack Swarm)
I used this for a 25-point yesterday.
1x Stormclad (10)
I'm thinking this for my 35 point
1x Ol' Rowdy(9)
1x Arlan Strangeways(2)
Looking to maybe put Journeyman WC in... extra Focus with those chargers seems strong, if I do so without dropping the Hunter, I would have to Take out Squire (extra allocation range) or Strangeways (utility/WJ protection)
eHaley list - (Assassin)
(Min)Precursor Knights (5)
1 Stormsmith(1) or 1 Reinholdt(1)
I have not Fielded eHaley yet, I like the concept of flinging a Hammersmith at a Warcaster though via Time Bomb. My real concern here is fielding 35 points, what to do with those extra 10? invest those points in more infantry like ATGM+UA? or Stormstrider?
Sloan list - (Snipe)
2x Hunter (12)
1x (Min)Long Gunner (6)
So, My sloan list, I can either pack the extra Longunners (They are squishy though), Or should I maybe Pack an Ironclad for a meat Shield to protect Sloan?
Any suggestions?, I have most the Cygnar Character/heavy Jacks, as well as stormstrider, 2x defender, 1 additional Hunter, ATGM + UA, Stormguard, Stormsmiths x3 , 2x Fireflies as well as stormblades. (i also use eHaley/Sloan). Also have Journeyman warcaster.
I'm still fairly new to the game, but why does no one use a Hunter with eNemo? seems like Hunter providing cover fire, while Stormclad + Chargers taking out troops and Rowdy(with Polarityshield/Force Field) + B13 as extra assault, seem like a good tactic to me.
Acquiring Reinholdt (mostly to use with Sloan) and eEryiss(for Haley assassin) today.
Wish list for me:
Any jack's/units I'm missing that I haven't mentioned that works well in your experience with those 3 casters?
