Heros: Dragon Mage -390 points
Ring of Fury
Core
Archers (10)- 110 points
Total - 500 points
I can't think of a list more broken than this one in it's points bracket. So any critiques? :evilgrin:

o_O Whats broken about this, at all?

[070] 2 Spear Chukkas

have great odds at plucking holes in the dragon and killing the character
and I could even go for 4 spear chukkas, as thats only 140 pts, leaving plenty of night goblins lead by a LD8 general - decent enough to pass Terror test and also have fanatics plow holes in it too, your 6 turns of magic would probably not yield much against a large block unless of course I failed terror.

135 - Black Orc Big Boss on Boar with Heavy Armor, enchanted shield, martog's best basha
105 - 3 spear chukkas

89 - 20 Night Goblins with a Musician and Short Bows (20 S3 shots at the Dragon Mage) with a Fanatic so that I might put some wounds onto the dragon if it tries to "terror within 6 inches"

171 - 33 Night Goblins with a Fanatic, a Musician, a banner, netters (-1S for dragon and dragon mage if they come in close combat, waaagh can catch it with that too)

2 blocks that will have LD8 against terror, no magic defense but really I dont need it and 3 bolt throwers at S6 hitting on 4 at long range against your dragon.

You have one large target and 10 somewhat useless elves staying back.

Yes and no.

After all, if you are using the warbands rules, or the border patrol rules (which is what you will be playing with 500pts), you are not allowed to have a character that is above 150pts, and you must have 2 core.

So, not it isnt the most broken 500pts of HE, because it is no way legal.

Now, if you are just playing with 500pts with no army composition rules...then maybe.

you can shot the drgon mage with bows and he will die it's also possible to have a cannon in 500 pionts

I know - it's just a silly list; and 'no army compstion rules' - you mean no ones other than the ones in my army book
As to the 'You can shhot the guy' crowd... he's their to go down in a blaze of golry and have the dragon eat everything

But what if the your opponet plays WoC or Daemons or lizardmen or VCs or even BoC to a certian extent; that's why it's broken; because against a 'non-shooty' army you WILL destroy them, that's why this army is broken (In the sense that a broken army turns the game into rock-paper-siscors and makes the game unfun to an oppent if he dosen't have X in his list)

if ur playin WoC they will probly have a hard hitng unit that can take him down if not a magic caster who cna out magic him, BoC hcan out flank u take down the archers take and unit of 9 spear men and give the dragon mage talismen of loeic

Actually a decent Lizardmen list would shred it without shooting (although I do have quite a few skinks in 500pts, lol).
WoC round these parts tend to have MoS so terror isn't an issue and the daemons round here are either Nurgle or Tzeentch so again not too scary.
A lot of the large monsters are just not scary anymore...

Your army loses to a lizardman army with 20 skinks with blowpipes for a total of 140pts. Not too overpowered to me.

500pts very average lizardmen list:

Saurus hero with light armour, great weapon, shield
15 Saurus with standard
10 skinks
10 skinks
Salamander with extra handler

Watch 20 skinks create an 18" no fly bubble on both sides of the saurus for the dragon mage.


Tailored lists will destroy you without blinking. You will find it is not high elves, but wood/dark elves that break 500pts (dryads + hail of doom / RXBs + hydra)

If you want a broken list, go for this one:


Steam Tank.
300pts.
& then a hero+core for 200pts.

My thoughts exactly!:D That's 300 points of damn hard to kill in 500 points (Except against the aforementioned spear chukkas:p). The sun dragon is not that impressive, and regular missile troops have pretty good odds of taking him out as well as the rider.

It's not really a broken list if you're armie's affectiveness hinges on playing other armies with no shooting or magic;).

hellpit a-bomb with all the fixin's

necessary core rats and naked hero for screen

ninjas for anti gunline

you could fit that in 500 right?

superpowered monster and hordy screen stuff + cannon hunting ninjas to prevent it from dying too soon seems way broken.

i played someone that did the same sort of thing with woc i took a hell cannon to take pot shots 1st turn hellcannon misfires with thhzzzzz (all mages suffer a miscast) adjusted his role on popped the mage on his back and the dragon became immobile and unbreakable so i took it out with the cannon by my turn 3 it was a glorious failure on his part
a stank on the otherhand i wouldn't like as much i also like the manti DE option with pendant and a lance

yeah but all you guys are just tailoring your lists to kill his dragon, I mean who would ever really take 4 spear chuckas or 3 cannons in 500 points. so if evcerybody isn't tailoring their lists to kill this guy then yeah its pretty broken.

I didn't tailor the Steam Tank list. The only main threat out there in 500pts will be 3 cannons.
