Hi

I have been on a hiatus from Godslayer, but now it´s time for me and my usual gaming buddy to get back into it. As I am reading up on the rules I am reminded of how fantastic the rules are. Almost all of my Godslayer experience comes from playing Nordgaard. I´m planning a few games with my Halodynes and thought I´d make a thread Smile

My collection of Halodynes is far from complete and so far counts the following:
Demarchon
Demarchon
Syntarch
Syntarch
Sanctum Priestess
Sanctum Priestess
10 Hoplites
10 Hoplites
Sons of War
Animated Statue

Next month I'm getting the Sacred Familar and another warlord. I might also get one of the following:
Hill Ogres
2 x Sons of War
Amazon Hunters

My usual gaming buddy and I hav agreed that were going to play mostly 300 point lists and 500 points list. Kinda like in Warmachine and Hordes where we play 35 points lists and 50 points lists. Agreements like this help us plan our collections.

Now any ideas for 300 and 500 point lists is more than welcome. I´ll post a few ideas later, but I gotta run for now.

Well my favorite warband size is 450-500 points because that gives enough points to have ,ultiple combats on the table instead of a big scrum in the middle, and allows more strategic play.

My ffavorite warbands are maxed-out basic troops with a few supporters.

I love large warbands, so I will often play 3 full units of basic troops. In this case Hoplites. With proper backup (Priestess Demarchon and Syntarch), they can accomplish almost anything.

so for 500 points, I would take:
9 Hoplites 103
9 Hoplites 103
8 Hoplites 92
Demarcon @65
Priestess 30
Syntarch 30
Cerberos
3 Hill Ogres 74

I would also be tempted to try something like this:
5 Amazon Hunters 102
5 Amazon Hunters 102
Godquester (Amazon) 90
Priestess 31
9 Hoplites 103
3 Sons of War 72

I have always wanted to try this for 300 points.
This is a serious bad-ass warband!
3 sons of War 72
3 sons of War 72
3 sons of War 72
Godquester (Temple) 84

You can activate your entire warband in a single turn!

How about this for 500:
3 sons of War 72
3 sons of War 72
3 sons of War 72
Godquester (Temple) 87
Cerberos 35
Cerberos 35
Priestess 30
Sacred Familiar 15
4 Hill Ogres 97

I am going to try the 3 x 3 Sons of War army at some point. I just hope it works!

With the models I have now I was thinking of something like this for a 350 points list:

Demarchon 42
10 Hoplites 114
10 Hoplites 114
syntarch 30
sanctum Priestess 20

That leaves 30 points for magic stuff and equipment.

Has anybody really tried the 9 Sons of War + bad ass character warband? Did it work?

I did not try it, but I have 2 additional units of Sons of War on my workbench...so I the near future I hope I can try it.

Your 350p warband sounds solid, but it might need some more heavy hitting power....

Hi,

I can see the point about hitting power. So Ogres or SoW i suppose. You do not think the Hoplites can do the heavy lifting themselves?

Imagine those Hoplites fighting against Fjell Warriors Shield Wall, or Legionaires Testudo. 3 POW against 9 or even 11 ARM would make only a scratch on Dwarves or Mortans armors Smile
Consider also that handling of two 10 models units is not very comfortable, and usually not every unit member will participate in combat.

yes i guess that you are right Smile It could just be really cool If it was possible to make an army based on Hoplites. I guess the Sons of War and Hoplites will have to do.
