There’s an invasion going on right now, as a host of new Legion players are taking the field in Aarhus (the city I live in). An interesting side effect is, that I got to see how my list performed even before fielding it, as one of the other new Legion players used it with some minor cosmetic changes.
It feels a bit strange to have someone play my list before I ever did but what the hell. It seems the dual Angel pVayl core concept is solid, the Scythean and Naga countered the Colossal like they were supposed to, and it seemed to be working as intended. My new list is a bit more flexible with some added tricks, but looks and feels really weird.
Vayl, Disciple of Everblight
– Naga Nightlurker
– Nephilim Soldier
Farrow Bone Grinders (Leader and 3 Grunts)
Spawning Vessel (Leader and 5 Grunts)
Swamp Gobber Bellows Crew (Leader and 1 Grunt)
The Bone Grinder grunts go in the pot on the first turn and turn into a Stinger. The Stinger then gets Tenacity and digs in somewhere useful. That’s DEF 18, ARM 13, and Immunity to blast damage, and it’s parked up to about 16″ from the deployment zone, which is as far as a Shredder could run. In addition I get a Bone Grinder Shaman for free, though he might flee and never do anything, but hey… he’s free.
Increased move on the first round, and possibly a free support model… sounds good to me, and it gives the Scythean something to do. I’m unsure about the Spell Martyrs, but I’ll give them a shot, and if nothing else they can fight a bit or go in the pot, so it’s not a huge loss. Now I just have to figure out reinforcements and receive all the models that are still en route. Reinforcements are currently stuck in the bad-ass image of a Strider Deathstalker with two Raeks, which would be a pretty lousy setup but look awesome.
