ArosCon 2017, new list

After having gotten involved in some online nerd-drama (I know I shouldn’t, but it’s so hard to resist!) I needed some R&R. I sat down to create a second list for ArosCon, which should involve painting as few models as I possibly can. My first list will be the completely untested “Damiano – Lords of Darkness” list.

Captain Damiano, Lord of Darkness
– Nomad
– Nomad
– Buccaneer
Rhupert Carvolo
Ragman
Anastasia di Bray
Kayazy Assassins – Max
– Kayazy Assassin Underboss
Kayazy Assassins – Max
– Kayazy Assassin Underboss
Croe’s Cutthroats – Max
Kayazy Eliminators
Kayazy Eliminators

The list has so many tools, asks so many questions, and has a lot of funny interactions. Croe’s with back strike bonus and Dead Eye will land 3d6+10 shots on anything short of a DEF buffed Warcaster in cover, assassins will reliably backstab heavy warjacks to death (or just stab them in the eyes with combo-strike Daggers), and high arm single wound models, or the living ones at least, will be stabbed with anatomical precision. Then I thought, well maybe I can use the exact same list with Magnus2, just with some jacks switched around.

Magnus2, also… Lord of Darkness… I guess
– Renegade
– Nomad
– Buccaneer
Rhupert Carvolo
Ragman
Anastasia di Bray
Kayazy Assassins – Max
– Kayazy Assassin Underboss
Kayazy Assassins – Max
– Kayazy Assassin Underboss
Croe’s Cutthroats – Max
Kayazy Eliminators

I would need to paint 0 additional models in order to field this list, and it would sort of work, but in actual game play it would probably be better just to just bring one list. I’ve got 0 chance of putting together and painting my Ossrum list in time, so I’m going to have to figure something else out. I have just gotten a bunch of new stuff, and I would like a gun line, or something resistant to anti-stealth gun-lines, but that seems unlikely, so time to get creative.

Ashlynn d’Elyse
– Sylys
– Freebooter
– Nomad
– Nomad
Lanyssa
Rorsh
– Brine
– Battle Boar
Ogrun Bokur
Ogrun Bokur Gibbs
Rhupert Carvolo
Wrong Eye
– Snapjaw
Ragman
Aiyana & Holt

A little bit of alpha potential, and her feat combined with Star Crossed is just gross, I mean an average warrior model will charge in rolling 5 dice, and removing the three best. Brine can charge from a mile away with Quicken, and Admonition is always fun.

With a Freebooter Ashlynn can be sort of immune to KD (barring shenanigans), and with Quicken and Concealment on herself she’s really hard to hit. I’m thinking the lists should play extremely aggressively, and threaten with Gallows for attrition. I probably won’t have time to test it, especially considering the new patch for World of Tanks today, but I only need to paint Sylys, Ashlynn, and one Bokur to field it.

  1. I forgot about Gibbs! Repo 3 and Sylys means she can cast while staying safe ish.

  2. Have you thought about MacBain?

    Countermeasures are great against any gunline and his feat is good for the lesser warlocks. Countermeasures, Orin, Wrongeye and Dalia is a whole lot of ‘you can’t do that’ to shooting and other attacks too.

    Downside is that he’s probably best with Galleon, but I think he can still do work with Nomads.
