How many drops are normal in your army?

Recommended Posts

It would be nice to see how many drops each army usually has with common army builds.

It seems to break into 3 main bands I find. 

1-2 drop for armies with viable super battalions although it feels like GW are trying to take this out of the game. 

6-8 drops for armies with a battalion and extra support heroes / units 

10+ drops for any others. 

So if you can get around a 4 drop that still has a lot of value as you will decide round 1 in all but super battalion matchups.  

Also if your playing a high drop army you need to have a build that can both survive alpha strikes and also take objectives from hordes who sit on them top of 1

When playing Kharadron Overlords I aim for2-3 drops when playing 1000-1500 point games.

As said before, GW is slowly phasing out big battalions. So its isn't that necessary to get down to one drop anymore. Anything below 5 will almost guarantee being able to chose who goes first.

My last Nurgle tournament list had 7 drops and exactly 77 models. Currently re-working the list for NOVA and LVO though.

Unless you add 100 models exactly don’t you dare change that list! 😂

Well it was a bit forced, as I counted The Glottkin as 3 models and the harbinger of decay as 2 (mount and rider) and also had to count the free tree I place at the beginning of the battle. HAHA. But it was cool when I realized it.

Haha damn, I was already thinking about a 6 drop, 66 models list for my Slaanesh and now I have to boot shyll’esske 😂 

but I got there. (We usually play 1,5K so that really helped me out ;) )

shalaxi, daemon prince, sorcerer lord, 2x30 daemonettes & 3 fiends 

boom! 1470 pts. 6 drops, 66 models and I just need to paint shalaxi to get there! 

EDIT: oh I like this challenge with my mortal lists it’s a bit more tricky but still doable. I have a 4 hour flight coming up, but I think I know what I’ll be doing 🙈

As many as I can feasibly get without compromising the strength of the army. I always prefer to outdeploy rather than fish for first turns :D (Gloomspite/Skaven)

12-20I guess.

(skaven, fluff build)

 

Last game I played with my Skaven was against a 4 drop opponent. I think it actually help to have a billion rats dropping. Allows me to set up reactively and throw them off with clanrats!

Yep, basically what I do.

and now you know the key to winning a game with the skaven faction.
