Making Sausage

Mostly just thinking out loud here:

With the Bubonic Court and, according to rumors, the new Skaven book, I can take Plague Monks as Core. It's probably ill-advised, but what the heck:

Plague Monkapalooza
Bubonic Court of Nurglitch - 2,000 points

Lords & Heroes
Plague Lord Nurglitch
Plague Priest - BSB, Storm Banner
Festering Chantor - Plague Censer, Dispell Scroll x2
Core
  • Plague Monks x25 - Full Command, Extra Hand Weapon, War Banner
  • Plague Monks x25 - Full Command, Extra Hand Weapon
  • Plague Monks x25 - Full Command, Extra Hand Weapon
Special
  • Plague Censer Bearers x10
  • Plague Censer Bearers x10
Rare
  • Rat Spawn
AT-43 is also on the top of my mind, since I'll be playing it in a few hours. Mind you, I'm sure none of these are good and, if they are, they've probably been done to death at this point. This is mostly mental sausage-making as I try to process the game. Expect more!

One list I'll be able to easily run when my final orders come in is:
Red Block - Supra
  • Dragonov Kommandos x9 - Sergeant, Sniper Gun x3, Electronic Warfare x2
  • Dragonov Groupa S
  • Krasnye Soldati x15 - Vrachov, Rocket Launcher x3, Medic x2
  • Dragomirov Kolossi - Dragomira
  • Sierp x3
Or maybe even drop the Krasnye Soldati and replace them with even more Dragonov Kommandos.

The list I plan to run this evening (at first, at least) is:
Red Block
  • Krasnye Soldati x14 - Vrachov, Rocket Launcher x3, Medic x2
  • Krasnye Soldati x12 - Tymofieva, Grenade Launcher x3, Mechanic x2
  • Dragonov Kommandos x9 - Sergeant, Sniper Gun x3, Electronic Warfare x2
  • Sierp x2 - Sergeant
  • Urod
I'd like to work up a list that lets me load up on Kolossi... but it just ain't happening at 2,000 points. The list that gives me the most options there is Frontline and, with that, I need to ensure that I have enough AFVs to stick around... and it's tough to find points for both those and TacArms with only 2,000 points to spend.

  1. I liked your first Bubonic Court list better. This one, with no screeners or sacrificial units, will be too easy to frenzy-bait into flank charges.

  2. That's a very good point; I suppose I'd have to use Censer Bearers to screen, and that's just *dumb*.

    Mostly, it was an exercise in, "Can I take all Plague Monks?" Of course, loading up on just one kind of unit is a much greater recipe for failure in WHFB than any other game I've ever played.
