1,500pt Slow grow

#1 Post by Evinyal »

Any reason why the prince isn't riding the dragon? If you're gonna take one, you might as well do it properly right?
an interesting variation on my usual playstyle, which is 'charge forward, forward for the love of khaine, we can fight better than any of them and they can't shoot into melee why is our armor so thin ohgodcannons'

Chariots are immune to killing blow & monster slayer. Plus I can't take the white sword if the Prince is on a dragon.

Then why not save a load of points and get rid of the dragon?

I like the Dragon, maybe it is not the optimal choice for the points. But Dragon Mages are awesome :)

You have more redirectors than units :D

Maybe drop the Eagle and the Musician and Standard on the Dragon Princes, and instead add 2 for 7 Total
Or drop the Eagle and a Skycutter and add 10 Swordmasters or White Lions with 2/3 Command

Probably Skirmish on the Reavers is more worth it than the Sentinel on the Archers. (360° Vision etc.)

Do you have any special rules regarding the growing of the list you need to consider? Or is it just "the next list will be bigger"? Also, what sort of powerlevel are we aiming for? Casual? Themed? Hardcore tournament?

I agree that you have at least 1 redirector too many. I would drop the eagle at a minimum. I would also drop the archer dart for just more LSG. Even if you keep the archers, drop the sentinel. Their whole purpose is to be cheap and expendable. Adding a champion only makes them more expensive without achieving anything.

I like the theme of your list. If that's what you're going for, then keep it. Otherwise, I think there are better ways to spend your points than 180 of them on Skycutters. With the rare points you have, you can more than double your DP unit for instance. I might keep 1 Skycutter and drop the other and the eagle into the DP's.
