This guy wants to be Caine so bad. But he isn’t. So what can I do with his list? First off, I’m thinking gun line. Secondly, Troll RAT is dead average. A 5 means I’m struggling to hit a heavy warjack. Knocking down things seems to be the easiest method available to hit things.
War Wagon gives Jarl’s army a chance to hit stuff. Dozer and Smigg boost the wagon’s shots. The Bomber gives Jarl access to Snipe, and that means his threat extends to 22″ plus a 4″ magic bullet off the main guy hit. So sure, you can shield guard. But whoever is hiding behind the guard is still getting a POW 12. It just won’t be boosted.
Scattergunners and their sorcerer exist for ghost busting. They aren’t as good a roadblock as the Kriel Warrior or Warders or Champions, but they have good sprays. When the Fell Caller buffs their MAT, they may pull off some Quick Work attacks during a charge. I wish their ability was assault, because I still have to get them to kill something during that charge. I may dump the Scattergunners for something If I see a good trick. I’m not sure how they’ll work as a front line. Usually I run something in front of them to take a melee attack and to take advantage of Clear!
The Bushwhacker and Lynus and Edrea group takes the place of my front line. They’re supposed to deliver a really accurate POW 20 shot at a Warbeast and hopefully take out an aspect. Hopefully the Skinner will come into play late game to further harass the enemy Hordes player, finishing what the Bushwhacker unit starts.
Future changes may include swapping the Bushwhacker for a melee group or another Warbeast. But I need to play a few games first.
