Waffelen Posted February 16, 2021 Share Posted February 16, 2021 Hi,Planning to have a game with a friend (when lockdown rules eased). He plays stormcast with 2x ballista, a stardrake, 9x prosecutors and 3x Vangard palladors plus the rest in small units of foot troops but the units I have named are the ones that I think need to be mentioned for context. I also should mention we are fairly new (only 4-5 games total between us) so don't have tones of models to choose from and aren't playing battle plans as yet till we get the hang of rules and our own troops meaning no objectives. Just kill as much as possible in the 5 turns.My question is weather to run:Option A total = 220; 10x Acolytes = 120, 5x gutter runners = 60 and bell of doom = 40 orOption B total = 210; 3x warpfire throwers = 70 each instead of option A?Tried 1x warpfire thrower in one game and it died early doing nothing same with gutter runners but not tried the others. My thought is the acolytes combo could be best for 2 reasons - 1. more bodies on the field (u'll see my list below is lite on numbers for usual skaven trash), 2. another option in the acolytes to throw a warpstone spark at for +1 damage per model in the unit, which is not usable on the warpfire throwers since they don't use the standard attack sequence. Maybe he warpfire throwers don't need it as they can do tones of damage, I don't know, hence the question.The below list is everything I defiantly wanna take then substitute in and out the options listed above. The plan is to magic + shoot him to death:Arch-warlock + chain warp lightening = 160 Grey seer on bell + suspicious stone, death frenzy = 240Warlock Bombardier + warp lightening shield = 120Doomwheel = 1503x Warplock Jezzails = 14010x Stormvermin + shield, drummer,standard bearer = 10010x Stormvermin + shield, drummer,standard bearer = 10010x Stormvermin + shield, drummer,standard bearer = 10010x Stormvermin + shield, drummer,standard bearer = 100doom flayer = 60 3x gnaw holesratling gun = 60ratling gun = 60ratling gun = 60Arkhspark Voltik total = 710Warlock engineer (General) + more warp power, warp resonator, overseer of destruction = 110Warp lightening cannon = 180Warp lightening cannon = 180 Warp lightening cannon = 180Vermintide = 40 Warp lightening vortex = 80 Thanks for reading, all input welcome!
