T9A - Two army lists for an upcoming game.

Post by tehnico »

Hello? Is there anybody in there?

Me and a friend are going to have a game night but both armies are coming from my stash. So I tried ot make two distinct army types out of the models I have. I ended up with 2 1800pt Dread Elf armies, and each even have a bit of a theme. Niether are optimized but it's only a friendly. Still they both have some interesting options and a bit of fun.

The first army is all speed and light troops. It's also the first Yema army I've tried.

Lords & Heroes
--------------------------------------------------------

Dread Prince, General (342pts): Yema, Pegasus w/Barding, Heavy Armour, Shield, Throwing Weapon, Beastmaster's Lash, Midnight Cloak.

Captain, BSB (209pts): Yema, Elven Horse w/MP 5+ & Light Troops (what the hell), Heavy Armour, Throwing Weapon, Hardened Shield, Hero's Sword, Gemstone Amulet.


Core
--------------------------------------------------------

14 x Dark Riders (334pts): RxB, Shields, FC (BSB goes here)

28 x Corsairs (361pts): FC w/Icon of the Relentless Company, AHW, RHb

5 x Dark Riders (100pts): RxB

5 x Dark Riders (100pts): RxB


Rare
--------------------------------------------------------

5 x Dark Acolytes (195pts): Champion, Yema (really excited to try Wicked Lash)

Dread Reaper (80pts): Repeating Shot

Dread Reaper (80pts): Repeating Shot


The second has more of an elite troop, heavy hitter vibe. I'll definitely be forcing the issue with these guys.

Lords & Heroes
--------------------------------------------------------

Exalted Oracle, General LVL4 (295pts): Black Magic, Ring of Shadows, Skull Splitter

Captain, BSB (233pts): Yema, Raptor Chariot, Midnight Cloak, Halberd


Core
--------------------------------------------------------

22 x Repeater Auxilliares (302pts): FC w/Flaming Standard, Shields (LVL4 goes here)

10 x Repeater Auxilliares (150pts): FC, Shields


Special
--------------------------------------------------------

10 x Dread Knights (285pts): Champion, Standard Bearer w/Gleaming Icon

25 x Executioners (375pts): FC

Rare
--------------------------------------------------------

Dread Repeater (80pts): Repeating Shot

First list has great agility but lacks substance.
Second is the opposite, loaded with lots of mildly efficient shooting.

Based on reports about what is efficient, I may recommend you to consider a mix:
the second list special and oracle, the first list agile part (DR and acolytes) and BSB.
