Hi!

I made my first 9th Age 2500 points HBE list. The main idea about the list is to have 2 anvil units, the others are flankers, redirectors,etc so I can dictate the battlefield. With some archers, 2 scout and 2 fast cavalry units I can kill redirectors and warmachines. The 3 lone model are at risk cause of cannons but if I'm lucky I can kill them before they cause too much damage. The dragon princes became beasts if they can charge, first time using shadow warriors and lion chariot. I'm curious if they became viable.

First, I chose white magic because I have 3 one model units which I can heal, can mutilate enemy characters and we lost the ASF so the initiative is becoming more important now. With the upgrade he outranges most of the enemy fire with his archer bunker. The white lion character is for stubborn for his unit and for be BSB. The eagle character is for hunting down stuff and flank enemy. I hope the spearmen became finally a useable unit. I will find out soon. :wink: With heavy armour and upgraded spears they can be lethal, especially if they gain one more strength and gave them the banner to hold the line. With the chariot I can support any combat. Swordmasters and dragon princes for flanking.

What's your opinion about this list? Do you have any idea how to tweak to list?

Hi SZUPERhun

I'm not that sharp on the particulars of ninth age but in general the list looks decent. If I had a criticism, it's that it doesn't do any one thing especially well. The shooting is passable, it has decent combat units but not awesome ones, magic is OK. It's a bit MMU/MSUish, which should help with deployment and maneouvre.

Archmage looks sensible. The eagle guy looks like a slight luxury to me but could be great against some things. I don't believe the Innate Defences from Dragon Mantle and Lion Fur on the BSB stack but I could be wrong. Spear blocks are OK now as far as I can tell.
