Two Towers, mark II

Post by Daeron »

Greetings,

In light of the painting contest I'm redefining my Two Towers list. Originally, I had 3 RBTs (and preferably 4) but as I lack the RBT models, I'll go for a pair of RBTs and a unit of Shades.
It's a little less powerful, but perhaps more stylish and tricksy. It would also motivate me to paint my shades :)
The Sorceress remains a random character, with the options described below. I aimed for entertaining builds, rather than the most effective ones.

The rules are vanilla 8th edition.

220pts - High Sorceress, Level 4. Khaine's Crazed Blood Sorceress.

186pts - Master, Peg, Full armor, CoT, Lance. Sir Lancealot.
300pts - Death Hag, COB, BSB. The priestess.

383pts - 28 WEs, FC, Banner of Armor Piercing.
110pts - 5 DRs, Shields, Mus, RXBs
110pts - 5 DRs, Shields, Mus, RXBs

354pts - 27 EXEs, FC
140pts - 2 RBTs.
90 pts - 5 Shades, AHW. Assassin's apprentices.

175pts - Bloodwrack Shrine
125pts - 5 Warlocks
125pts - 5 Warlocks

Random loadout for the Sorceress - Roll D6

1 - Opponent's choice.
2 - Lore of Bloody Beasts, Book of Ashur, Ironcurse Icon.
3 - Lore of Bloody Life, Gem of Spite, Crown of Command (for the lulz)
4 - Lore of Bloody Shadow, Black Amulet
5 - Lore of Bloody Death, Talisman of Preservation, Dispel Scroll.
6 - Lore of Bloody Dark Magic, Tome of Furion, Ring of Hotek

It seems like an interesting matchup indeed. All in all, my list still sports 4 vanguard units, a scouting unit and a flying unit which isn't bad for a heavy infantry list. But put that against your MSU and it may struggle to control movement. '

Where in the Netherlands do you live? Perhaps we can arrange a matchup :P

Well I certainly appreciate the idea, and invitation, but I'm afraid I have to decline :(. I don't have the (any) army sufficiently painted.. Which is a requirement for the tournament. I also still need to build the BWS, which was my goal for april or may. If I have to rush into building it now, I won't get any painting done at all.

It was a great idea though.. I'll keep an eye on local tournaments for the mid-spring time. I hope to have something presentable by then anyhow.

Do you have a local club where you play? If you do, I could perhaps invite another player or two from my group for the funsies.
