Warmachine: Cygnar

Yes you've read it right. Warmachine! I'm starting a new table top game. Not because of the Games Workshop prices. But because a friend of mine did a double order and so I end up with a Cygnar Battlegroup.

 I get the following in the battlebox 

  •  Commander Stryker (this guy minus the points from the total. 6pts less)
  • Ironclad (7pts)
  • Lancer  (6pts)
  • Charger (4pts)
This gives a total of 11 points. What Commander Stryker does with his 6pts less. I have no clue! Gonna wait till my mate responds about this post. To add up some points. I seem to be needing a Journeyman Warcaster.

And Also an Unit Stormblade and Long Gunner. Melee and Ranged group.

This gives a list of 25points to play with.

Cygnar is the most prosperous and most technologically advanced nation of the Iron Kingdoms. Of all the human factions it could also be considered the most benevolent, although that has begun to change with recent events. Cygnar's ballistic technology is unsurpassed, and the Cygnaran specialty, arcane electrical energy, can fry opposing warjacks' cortices, rendering them far less effective in combat. So this means I can pew pew from long range and then just close combat the enemy down if they get to me!

 Doubt I will paint them in the blue/white sheme. Gonna think about it maybe later in the night.

2 opmerkingen:

  1. The warcaster +X point values subtracts a cost of a warjack in that warcaster's battlegroup. The Warcast himself doesn't cost any points.

    So with Striker, you more or less get the Lancer for free. So it looks like you got all the calculations all right.

    Warmachine is a pretty entertaining game. A bit more dynamic combat then GW games in general. Make good use of your warjack power attacks, they can make and break some games.

  2. Aight :) Thanks for explaining that! I understand I got the warcaster for free. Kinda funny!
