ToonCon List!

Post  nathanr on Tue Aug 05, 2014 12:44 pm

After much figuring and pondering I think I've come up with a list for ToonCon. It doesn't have everything I wanted and I doubt if I'll win a game with it but I like it.

Orion King of the Woods with 2 hounds
2 level 2 spellsingers with asrai longbows - lore of shadows
2 waystalkers

10 glade guard with standard and musician w/ trueflight arrows
10 glade guard with standard and musician w/ trueflight arrows
10 glade guard with standard and musician w/ trueflight arrows
5 glade riders with standard and musician w/ hagbane arrows
10 dryads

5 scouts w/ hagbane arrows
3 warhawk riders
5 wild riders with full command
5 wild riders with full command

6 waywatchers
2 giant eagles
2 treemen

It scores 8/14 on Carson's composition due to the high number of character points, bows and 2 treemen. If magical arrows count for the magical item allowance then I'm probably over 250 as well so that would push me down to a 6/14. Ouch. I might re-think some things and edit this list later.

I like it, but I feel like you need a large dedicated combat unit like treekin, eternal guard or dryads. The wild riders are great but they drop like flies, and the treemen take a while to knock down things

I had a unit of 6 treekin in there but I dropped them to be able to fit in Orion. I feel like taking Orion is a huge sacrifice for what you get for him. For less points I could have a better, more well-rounded army. That said, I really want to try him out. I'll think about it and maybe I'll drop him for the tournament and use him sometime later in a fun game.

Here's the list without Orion:

Level 3 Spellweaver - Lore of High Magic, Asrai Longbow
Level 3 Spellweaver - Lore of Dark Magic, Asrai Longbow

Glade Captain BSB - Great Stag (other magic stuffs)
Waystalker
Waystalker

10 Glade Guard with trueflight arrows, Standard, Musician
10 Glade Guard with trueflight arrows, Standard, Musician
10 Glade Guard with trueflight arrows, Standard, Musician
5 Glade Riders with hagbane arrows, Standard, Musician
10 Dryads

5 Scouts with hagbane arrows
3 Warhawk Riders with champion
5 Wild Riders with full command
5 Wild Riders with full command
6 Treekin

5 Waywatchers
2 Great Eagles
2 Treemen

2999 points. Still scores an 8/14 (too many magic items, 2 treemen, too many bows)
I like it better, I'm a bit sad that I couldn't make Orion work but I feel more confident with this army. If I'm going to take it I'm going to have to paint 9 more wild riders, 2 Great Eagles and 5 scouts. I'm going to try to max out on my painting score so that means I'll be working on a display board too.

Remember, what you score on comp is not that huge of a deal. Also, comp is merely included to give players some sort of idea what to expect and mainly to give points to score other than battle points. In our environment, sportsmanship has become redundant which only leaves painting and battle points. If we only went with those two categories battle points would be all that mattered.

As to sportsmanship......even in Calgary with a long checklist for scoring sportsmanship and a large diverse selection of players it seemed redundant as most players were scoring 8 out of 10 every game. Looking forward to this tournament to see what Saskatoon's 3000pt armies look like compared to those we saw in Calgary.

Nathan is a good example of list building for these tournaments. He basically built what he wanted without getting overly concerned with scoring max on comp (although he did keep it in mind). I would expect most armies to score in this range with a 3000pt tournament.

I'd add another skullcrusher to the 3 man unit. another unit of dogs can be useful.

solid tough list so anything else you want will work.

I finally opened a book and wrote down a list for tooncon, its a fairly fighty lizardmen list, nothing fancy just get in and punch some faces in.

Slann : focus of mystery,soul of stone, becalming cogitation, harmonic convergence, BSB

Oldblood: Armour of destiny, crown of command, halberd.

Scar Veteran: carnosaur, blood roar, loping stride, halberd, ancient stegadon, helm big smile and a cheery disposition

32 Saurus Wariors: spears and shields with command group

36 Saurus Wariors: spears and shields with command group

30 Temple Guard : command group

Ancient stegadon: sharpened horns, unstoppable stamped (terrible name for ONE extra attack...)

Ancient stegadon: sharpened horns, unstoppable stamped

bastiladon solar engine

I have a few points left over, i was thinking about adding the standard of discipline to the slann ( because lizardmen need it ...) but then i got to thinking can he use it ?

One noticable difference is the lack of gyrocoptors. I really wanted to field the five i have and one gyrobomber but opted for a special character instead and didnt want to bring too much cheese

Fair enough. Very Happy

You need to play "The Ride of the Valkyries" from Wagner, when you deploy them. Don't you just love the smell of dwarf Runes in the morning?

Since the bloodletters don't benefit from the general just give them the 5 point "reroll one breaktest" banner.

Ta-dah! 3000 points.

I can't remember what banner I gave them, but maybe I could switch it. I forgot my army list at home. >.> I know I gave each of them a magic banner. Can't remember for the life of me which one.

Give the Plaguebearers the +1 movement banner. The bloodletters the +1 Leadership, or the 5 pt reroll - depending on points.

Do you have ANY Greater Daemons? That would be a much better investment than the Daemon Prince.

I'm just writing words. Very Happy

I've got a Bloodthirster, and in a few paydays I'll have the rest of them. With the models I've got Daemon prince is the only one with any spell power.

Good Lord, that Warriors army is hard as nails. Love it. I also appreciate the Slaanesh DP more than the Nurgle, very subtle and arguably better.

N.V.C.G., I could lend you a Keeper of Secrets if you'd like. A Bloodthirster is a machine, but I think you'd like a little magic and a kitted out Keeper can actually be better than a Thirster in most cases.
