9th Age lists

Post  nathanr on Mon Mar 14, 2016 11:26 pm

I spent a good part of the day making lists for the various armies that I own.  I've got a list that I'm happy with for each now.  I haven't enjoyed list making this much for a long time, it seems like there are so many possibilities.  Now to try them out and come up with variations.

The Sylvan Elf forest spirit list options look like they could result in a very good list.  Also, kestrel knights are bad ass now.

Not going to lie, i pritty much spent all day Sunday doing exactly this. Even for other armies so i can see what my opponents could bring, Stuff is very familiar with just a little change to add spice for some units. I quite like this about 9th.

Ive got a "serious" list and a "goofy" list for all my armies. Looking forward to getting more games in! Just waiting on the update for my WS7 Tomb King with Thy Will Be Done on a SpHINX allowing him to grant his WS to a unit within 6-8" i think. Smile going to be fun.

Hrm... wow... very different to my Dwarf list... I'll post mine later but maybe im trying to be TOOO unconventional thats why im not enjoying the Dwarves anymore?

What are the "Deep Watch"?

Is that the Bret list i faced? it seemed like a tough list, if you General didnt get a catapult to the face turn 2 i think he would have been quite the deadly bastard on the field...


...Sooo... i gotta ask Nathan, your still employed right ? haha just that I sit infront of a computer all day so thats why i post all day, but EVEN I dont have my army lists on hand Wink nor the time to type all THAT out. haha

It is the 2500 point new book update version of the list you faced.

I am employed and sit in front of a computer all day. I have all my lists available through Google Drive so I have them anywhere and it's quick and easy to copy and paste, especially when I don't really want to be working on what i'm working on.

That wood elf list is almost exactly like the one I made.

I'm also waiting for the armybuilder updates.

The wood elf one was the hardest one to make because there are so many interesting options. Most of my lists will end up being variations on these with the characters being what changes the most from list to list.

I'm going to try to make 3 variations to each list.

The dread elves will not change much though because I don't have many more models than what is in the list. 5 more dark raiders and 2 pegasus-riding characters is all that has been left out. I might only make one variation that includes the two pegasus characters instead of some chariots.

The dwarfs I'm going to make a list with a big unit of rangers and a gyrocopter and a list with a king on a throne.

High Elves need a list with a dragon and I also have a griffon rider that needs some action.

Wood elves need a dragon list too, maybe I'll make that one all combat. The Wood Elves will also get a more tree spirit heavy list led by some tree spirit characters.

Ah Ironbreakers got a new name eh... they were like Iron Guard before the update. Cool.

Ha thats more or less where im at Smile altho i dont use google drive out of sheer lazyness. So i just ramble on forums when i dont wana work Smile

I'm having a REALLY hard time wanting to pay for Lords in 9th... idk why but like all my lists are just Hero's... i feel point wise my pricey lords never get their value but even if a hero dies he either 1 didnt cost that much so i dont care or 2 atleast did his points worth of help for the army...

That's because your still thinking in 8th edition terms....we can't all be daemon princes.

Army building has taken a lot of my time too, but I need army builder to finish them....math sucks.
