Edmonton onslaught

Post  nathanr on Wed Aug 23, 2017 10:29 am

I am having a lot of trouble figuring out a list for this. I think I've narrowed it down to two:

Kingdom of Equitaine

Lord on bearded warhorse with all the goodies
Paladin with battle standard on a barded warhorse
Wizard master damsel with 2 spells on a horse

12 knights aspirant full command
10 knights of the realm full command

5 scouting questing knights full command
5 grail knights full command
3 pegasus knights, standard, champ
3 Pegasus knights, standard, champ
1 trebuchet

Or

Highborn elves

Lord on Griffon with all the goodies again
Hero with battle standard, 2 spells

41 spears with full command
5 silverhelms with musician
5 silverhelms with musician

21 swordmasters full command
10 knights of Ryma full command
Lion chariot
Frost Phoenix

Both lists are light on shooting, weighted more for close combat and both are fairly character heavy. 4500 points is tough to fit what I want. I think the KoE list has more tricks but the Highborn elves seem like they'd be fun. Let me know what you think.

I'd really like to see you run the KoE, especially since the Lord has a bearded horse which would be totally cool to see. Wink

Also, I'd rather have 3 spells to cast then a Wizard master with 2 spells. I'd drop master, pick a third spell and take the 20 point sceptre of power. you'll have a better chance of getting a spell through and avoid miscast.

I'm leaning toward the KoE list too actually. I'll probably try to play a couple games with both lists in the next couple of months to see how they do before I make my decision though.

I'd vote for the knights. You'll do well with them. It would be fun to keep a running tally over the tournament how many points your general could claim

I agree with Don, about the wizard being better off as 3 spells non master. Also my vote would also be for KoE, the list just seems more interesting.

I see a severe lack of Dragons in both lists. But the KOE list looks fun!

I tried hard dwayne, I just found at 4500 points I was giving up way too much to get a dragon in.

Looking at the list of participants signed up for Onslaught there are already 2 kingdom of equitaine armies. Also, no highborn elves. Looks like I'll be taking the highborn elves unless a few test games tell me they are complete garbage.

Looking at the HBE list I'm wondering if 2 spells is even worth taking a wizard for? Would it be a "better" idea to take another caster with a few spells instead of something else?

Maybe drop the chariot and add another wizard? I'm not sure but lots of these videos I watch on the youtube have multiple casters and lots of spells, seems to be working for them, just an idea.

I think this is where I'm going - have to finish the second unit of Slaughterers, but they're almost done.

Scourge of Wrath, reroll 1's to hit sword, dispel horn, Iron hide
Herald of Wrath BSB eternal sword, 20 slaughterers, FC, always strength 5 swords, war banner
Herald of Wrath, 20 slaughterers, FC, lethal strike swords
3 Bloodcrushers, Aether Icon
5 Hellhounds
5 Hellhounds
Blood Cannon Chariot
5 Furies of Wrath

4500 exactly

scary list, your games will be fast anyway with no magic to worry about.

I'm going to run Empire, I'm still working on my list though.
