The Troupe Master is freaking sick KS. I love it. Really looking forward to painting up my Great Harlequin in a unique scheme too. Totally inspirational.
Glad to hear you've had a good run with your Harlies. How did that game against Ad-Mech go. They are a weird match-up... I'd love to know a little bit about the lists and the ups and downs of the game. Trying to get as much intel as possible as I build my own Harlies
Well, I'm basically running the same list I've been playing since 7th edition lol. The new codex doesn't change the way I play, just makes some of my choices work better and makes things a bit cheaper.
Multiple squads in transports, a few support characters, and a few squads of bikes. Although, I can now take three squads of bikes, unlike just two in 7th edition.
I run mostly Kisses on my troupes, and have a couple fusion pistols in each squad.
The Admech game was fairly straightforward. I advance everything turn 1, focusing on one flank. Shuriken to take down troops, while I focused fusion pistols to kill robots, kataphran, and Cawl. He went into 'shooting' mode with his robots right away, so I charged them with Starweavers to stop them shooting.
Really, the game is mostly decided on how much damage he can do Turn 1. In this specific case, he didn't destroy any of my transports, that worked well for me.
Love that Great Harlequin KS. Really nice colour scheme and very well executed too. He'll look superb leading up your army.
That game against KSons sounds really frustrating! 4 wounds from a win, leading to a crushing defeat...the dice Gods are certainly cruel and fickle!
Yeah, Playing agaisnt armies like Thousand Sons can be a fairly un-inspiring experiance. You just sit there while they endlessly cast powers I can't do anything to stop, and remove models as they take mortal wounds.
In this game, he boosted Magns up turn 1 with warptime, and wrecked a bunch of stuff. My whole army went into Magnus, and didn't kill him. He then proceeded to wipe me in his second turn.
