Damiano: Part 1

I took Damiano out for a spin on Monday. I made a fairly standard Kingmaker list, and it was pretty good but somewhat boring. Having just played my Magnus2 list with three Lesser Warlocks (I won, but had it been a timed game I most certainly would have timed out managing four casters at once, but neither of us had played our faction before), the bog standard Damiano list just didn’t scratch my unique snowflake itch, so I sat down to make something more “me”.

Sure Foot on the Assassins in front, and Death March on the unit behind them. Eliminators hit like trains in this list (potentially PS 22 combo-strikes), and a couple of Rovers to keep the Underbosses a bit safer. There’s five points left in the list, and I’m not entirely sure what to spend them on, but this looks like fun so far!

Who’s the boss?

The Rovers are solid without being spectacular, but can use Road to War to shoot a bit without getting engaged, or in order to threaten a solid range when combined with Hunter’s Mark. On feat turn they’re super hard to kill for anyone – as well as impossible to move – so they also give me some scenario presence.

Bad mofo!

I really do want some Steelheads to take advantage of his abilities, but I can’t seem to find the points to include any. If I go out of my way to include them I also end up in another problematic situation, because right now there’s a grand total of five models you can shoot at without ignoring stealth, where one is a Caster and two are high armor heavies.

Ragman is a problematic model to keep alive, but Rhupert is fairly easy to manage, so including a unit of Steelheads just gives my opponent something to shoot his little guns at. It does seem like an enormous waste, but if the end result is something that works anyway…

Damiano

I also think I might need to convert a special “Assassin Damiano” model, as playing a list full of silent killers with Don Quijote at the helm just seems strange. I have a bunch of Steelhead bits, and I guess I can sculpt a cloak, so I think it’ll end up working well. Assassin Rovers might be more of a stretch.
