350 Circle of Orboros list

Posted in Army Lists on August 25, 2008 by Connor

Don’t you think I should get 360 points? I am playing Circle.

Anyway, here we go.

Baldur – 65
Warpwolf – 108
Woldwatcher – 72
Woldwyrd – 53
Shifting Stones – 21
Blackclad Wayfarer – 26
Total = 345

Well, I had some unpainted Circle laying around so I figured why not.  I wanted to try to make a list that had a good deal of synergy so we’ll see how well I do in that respect.  I chose Baldur as my warlock because he seems pretty forgiving.  I haven’t really played many Hordes games so I’ll probably be at a disadvantage for the begining of this challenge until I start getting used to the fury mechanics.  His spell list seems pretty balanced with a lot of options for helping out my own units and I really like his feat as it can’t easily be worked around unlike much of the other Circle abilities (I’m looking at YOU legion.)  A warpwolf was a must for me because I love the model concept and it’s a really flexable beatstick.  At 350 points it will be the only model that will really benefit from Baldur’s “Earth’s Blessing.”  A Woldwatcher, while a solid warbeast (haha, Stone Form) in it’s own right, it’s animus “Vigilance” is where it really shines, lots of cool uses for that.  It’s a good match for Baldur because it’s Fertilizer ability helps him forest walk, and taking elemental constructs with Baldur is a no-brainer anyway.  Speaking of which, let’s throw another one in there, a Woldwyrd.  Another awesome animus, Arcane Killer, is always good to have around.  Imagine a +2str Warpwolf with Arcane Killer trampling a unit of Arcane Shielded Stormblades (just an example Fox, haha.)  The Wyrd’s ranged ability will also be helpful as my list is pretty lacking in that respect.  Shifting Stones are pretty much an auto-include in Circle lists and mine won’t be any different.  21 points for added mobility and healing? yes please.  They’ll also be of great use to the last guy on my list, the Blackclad Wayfarer.  Awesome model, awesome abilities, and an awesome name, (Conor Deorian) he’ll bring me up to solid 345 points.

76 – Grim Angus

72 – Troll Impaler

75 – Troll Axer

15 – Swamp Gobber Bellows Crew

Comes to a grand total of 349 out of 350 points.

350 point Storm Division list

Posted in Army Lists on August 24, 2008 by ForsakenPoptart

So I decided on my first list!

350:

Caine- 67

Defender- 122

Journeyman Warcaster- 25

Max Stormguard- 108

2 Stormsmiths- 24

Total of 346 points

So, this is kind of an unusual build for me, but I’m sure I’ll adapt. The Storm Division is going to be an interesting choice because it offers so few troop choices, but those troops are really adaptable enough to do whatever I need them to. Except, of course, shoot things. I brought Caine for the simple fact that I’ve only ever played 2 or 3 games with him, and I feel like my army needs some serious firepower to back up the armor. To that end, I’ve also brought a Defender- I find that it’s pretty well rounded, and can probably take on just about anything it’ll come across at the 350 point level. That big cannon will be handy for dropping holes in things while I close with my Stormguard. The Journeyman is basically an auto-include for most Cygnar lists Ive seen, and I’m going to use him as a solo hunter/arcane shield battery. The Stormguard…well, I wanted to bring some infantry, and this was the only viable choice at this point. I don’t own Stormlances yet, and Stormblades are being held for later. I could’ve taken Sword Knights, but I just like the Stormguard better- they’re a bit slower, but they’re more versatile, and with CMAT and the electroleap, are quite capable of taking on anything I throw them at. The Stormsmiths are included not only to round out points, but again as solo killers, and I find them to be exceptionally good at killing unit leaders at just the right time, as well.

My general plan? Caine and the Defender go right up the middle just behind the Stormguard, who will engage anything that might threaten Caine. The JWC can stay close to Caine to run intercept, and the smiths can go wherever I feel like- no point in supporting them, since they’ll die to a stiff breeze anyway.

I’m thinking I want to play Caine with some balls- no flashing every turn, only when things are too serious for him to handle.

First Post! Who we are and what we’re doing!

Posted in Information on August 23, 2008 by ForsakenPoptart

So Connor, Dr. Shwenke, Dan Fronk, and myself (Fox) decided to get our asses in gear and do some painting. We’re taking a page out of No Quarter and do our own version of The Gamers’ Journal, where they paint and play a set amount each month or however they do it. We’re doing our own in monthly increments, as follows:

September 1st-First list posted! Painting begins!

September 30th- 350 army done

October 31st- 500 army done

November 30th- 750 army done

December 31st- 1000 point army complete! Challenge is over!

The rules are simple:

Take as many photographs as possible

Army lists must be posted beforehand, preferably after a game or two.

Models may not be started early

Photograph of unpainted minis (primed is Ok!) must be taken and posted on the 1st of the month, and painted minis must be posted by the last day of the month.

As it stands, here’s what we’re doing:

Connor- Circle Orboros

Dr. Shwenke- Trollbloods

Fox- Cygnar (Storm Division)

Dan Fronk- Khador

Feel free to comment and let us know what you think! Thanks!
