I don't know why my polls keep closing immediately. Sorry! Let's try again: "standard" list refers to the list you play the most.

05-05-2010, 01:28
For my Brets, 2 Knights of the Realm, 2 Men At Arms, and 2 Peasant Longbowmen

05-05-2010, 05:10
I take 6 core units. 2 Marauders, 2 Marauder Horsemen, Chaos Warriors and Warhounds.

I don't ever play 2k, so that's for my 2250 list. Sue me. :p

05-05-2010, 05:23
I easily field 12 Core units, but then most of the time I play O&G at 3000+ points, so I don't have anywhere else to shove those points.

Grand Warlord

I play infantry heavy empire so easily 11+

05-05-2010, 05:39
Ogres: 2 units of Bulls, 1 unit of Ironguts, 2 units of Gnoblars, and 2 units of Trappers
Skaven: 1 unit of Stormvermin, 2 units of Clanrats, 2 units of Slaves, 1 unit of Giant Rats, and 1 unit of Nightrunners.

To answer your question: 7

05-05-2010, 06:13
4 for Lizardmen (2x Saurus, 1 x Skink, 1x Skink Skirmisher)
5 for Dogs of War (1x Duellist, 1x Xbows, 1x Light Cavalry, Marksmen of Miragliano, Volands Venators).

With Lizardmen, I would probably take another unit of skinks if I had the models assembled and painted. So I voted 5 due to that.

05-05-2010, 10:22
2; I'm a high elf player

05-05-2010, 10:30
WOC (6): marauders, horsemen, warriors, and 3 hounds
VC (6): 3 ghouls, 2 wolves, a cart
Skaven (8): clanrats, a big giant rats unit, 2 small units of giant rats, and as many slave blocks as I can fit (4)

I voted 7 as the mean.

2; I'm a high elf player

Love it. It seems that for a lot of high elf players, the core restriction is both a minimum and a maximum.

Anyway, I went for 8:

Goblins = 2x5 wolf riders, 2x5 spider riders, 3x30(or 35) night goblins, 1x20 night goblins with bows. I do sometimes have another bow unit, but I arbitrarily decided to leave that out (I probably leave it out marginally more times than I take it).

Wood elves = 3(sometimes 4)x10 glade guard, 1(sometimes 2)x5 glade riders, 1(sometimes 2)x8 dryads, sometimes 1x5 scouts.

So between the two of them I averaged it out at 8. Having said that, my wood elves (as I've said before in these polls) tend to be only at 1000 points, and therefore it's more like 4 core (2 glade guard, 1 glade rider, and 1 dryad unit).

05-05-2010, 11:09
For my WIP Empire, 4... but that doesn't include the 6 detachments (which are core troops, but don't count as a slot)

For my usual Wood Elves, 2 Glade Guard, 2 Dryads, and some Glade RIders = 5

05-05-2010, 11:21
Six for my VCs; three units of ghouls, two units of dire wolves and a corpse cart!

Five for my Empire; 2 x Swordsmen, Spearmen, Flagellant, Bowmen, although this may well change if I have to reduce my number of characters

My Beastmen include 2 x 20 Gors, 2 x 10 Gors, 2 x Tuskgor Chariots and 3 x 6 Ungor Raiders. For my Dark Elves I run 1 x 25 Warriors, 2 x 10 Corsairs, 1 x 6 Harpies and 2 x 5 Dark Riders.

2 large blocks of Warriors, 2 units of Marauder Horsemen, 1 or 2 units of Hounds. I would love to field more, but I need to fit in the 2 units of Knights and the sorcerers that make the army book work. Come 8th I hope to be able to field a core of 3 units of 18 Warriors and 2 units of 30 Marauders on the flanks.

Voted for 5.

O&G= 2x25 orcs, 1x12 orc archers, 1x35 night goblins, 2x6 Spider riders, 1x6 wolf riders.
