Until now we have only played 200 pts battle but ones we reach the 300 pts battles I want to try this list (includes some theory machine
Obsidian Nightmare (76 pts)
• Iron Crown
• Flail of Everdark
• Midnight Blessing
• Discarnate / Umbra’s Embrace
Lighteater (32 pts)
Packlasher (24 pts)
5x Ironhide Brutes (80 pts)
Skullsmasher Oakbows (39 pts)
Feral Fleshpounder (48 pts)
Total: 299 pts / 12 models
Obsidian Nightmare, is a pretty good warlord that has his own defense mechanism Ethereal and an amazing tactic to cloak himself or some models. Has some good buffs and debuffs and a good selection of items:
• I took the Iron Crown because the mixed sub factions, you get the most out all the models.
• Flail of Everdark, random POW “ouch” but 3D3 is always good, plus it gives him +1 MEL.
• For spells I took the Blessing of Midnight (obvious choice) and a debuff not sure which one both have lots tactical advantages. He is offensive warlord if you give him too much support spells he turns into backline warlord.
Lighteater, almost the auto include model for the Troglodytes, with his Eclipse tactic the Troglodyte can choose the battle flow and he is good for killing warmachine crews and loners with average stats.
Packlasher, main purpose is to feed the Oakbows, but with some help of the Obsidian Nightmare you can turn him into a sneaky assassin for killing warmachine crews and loners with average stats. Or sacrifice him to keep a unit busy for 1 turn.
Ironhide Brutes, well simple head smashers, I took them over the Shadow Troll because of their randomness (spell damage D6 -1 melee D6 POW).
Oakbows are the ranged support of this army, it’s a melee game so I don’t want to go overboard with ranged fire power. With an ACT of the warlord + Packlasher they can fire up to 6 times that’s pretty good to kill some support models, warmachine crews or unit leaders.
Feral Fleshpounder or Hammerfist both are smashy and meaty, but the Fleshpounder has +1 POW and can choose to do direct damage against heavy armored models, and he is 2” faster that alone is worth 10 points extra.
So what do you guys think of this mixed list?
