Thread: Legion of Everblight 1st hoardes army.

    Legion of Everblight 1st hoardes army.

    Hey! Getting into Hoardes looking for tips / tactic advice.


    C&C welcome.

    15 point start.
    Lylyth herald of everblight
    Forsaken
    Carnivean
    2x Raeks.

    Currently painting them up, ignore the bases as my basing materials are on the other side of the country.

    I'm not the best photographer, these were done without flash as the pictures look the best.

    Cc welcome

    Cheers!

    It seems like a good start. Not everyone likes the Carnivean, but it can dish a lot of damage; the Raeks are very fun models to use.

    This site is the best for learning the usefulness of unites and how to use them: https://battlecollege.wikispaces.com...+of+Everblight

    They chased lylyth around a bit, deciding running works best, narrowly escaped two of the ogre things. They persued, she ran again but did not make it this time....

    After the game we tested to see if she had survived her last move. Lylyth had line of sight on the enimy caster, fired her shot. The enimy warcaster goes down!! But makes makes his tough save. Awe.

    Great first game, no terrain made it a bit funny. All in all I learned a lot about movement attacking etc... I am ready for my second game.

    Both armys fought well trolls losing 2 warders and a kriel stone bearer. One warder was lost to a furious mauler.

    And now the casters....

    Working on bases... Lylyth is getting close, the forsaken is just a wee bit off.http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/05...842fe85c3d.jpg

    Iv not had a chance to look at your other lists but if you playing Legion, your doing yourself a disservice if you don't invest in a Angelius. Armour Piercing just wrecks jacks.

    Yeah most Legion players I know are using 2 or sometimes 3 Angeluses in one of their lists.

    I'm finding this thread very useful as I'm intending to start a Legion force in the next month or so.

    Re: Legion of Everblight 1st hoardes army.

    My next tier adds are warspears + warspears chief, spawning vessel and neraph.

    I am still deciding what to use to push it to 50 points. Either warmongers and warchief + 2x strider death stalkers or raptors and annyssa.

    I also have plans for thag1 theamed ogre list.

    We are at gamezilla Fredericton NB. Good fun just starting.

    So as the games went on I witnessed why trollbloods are deadly. The feat Carnage, I watched a troll carve through 7 dwarves. It was disgusting.

    Well, yes and no. Armour piercing deals a lot of damage, but you only get one Armour piercing attack per turn from an Angelius, the rest of its attacks will be low P+S and not deal much damage at all.
    Compared to a Scythean whose individual attacks are weaker than the Armour pierce, but together add up to better sustained damage in many cases.
    A charging Angelius will deal on average 17 damage to a Khador heavy (14 from Armour pierce, then three bought attacks that deal 1 each), whereas a charging Scythean will deal on average 22 damage to the same Khador heavy.

    It is also important to keep in mind how AP actually works, too. Halve the base ARM (round up) and then add bonuses. So jacks with shields, Arcane Shield, Defenders Ward and etc are actually worse targets as they'll be ARM 9+2+3 or 10+2+2. AP is good against slayer type jacks and some lights, but it can be a shocking let down against people prepared for it (or those that don't bother and go infantry heavy). Raw damage is often far better than trying to force a single use attack, especially with warlocks or abilities that can bump the raw numbers for all attacks.

    Right now my dilemma is seraph or neraph. I'm going to magnetize it for either but still.

    I also got it over the angelus due to better looking fig.
