2000pt Harlequins
« on: August 7, 2017, 08:42:21 PM »
Heading to a two day tournament in a couple of weeks, so I'm fine tuning my harlequins for that. Not going to win the event, but hopefully place well enough to get some decent ITC points.

As I'm playing pure harlequins, I had to make a few compromises.

1, I'm not really going to be able to touch fliers. This means that if folks play a lot of them, I need to go for the 'no boots on the ground' victory condition.

2, not much shooting. I had a slew of S6 shooting, but most of my damage will be done in the assault phase.

As much as I love them, I had to drop Death Jesters, as they are just kinda amphetamine parrot. Also, n no voidweavers, as they do nothing better then a starweaver, and starweavers are cheaper and carry models.

Skyweavers are still not ideal, but they can hurt fliers in a pinch, and are just another fast threat.

Plan depends on my opponents army and mission.

Typically, play cagey and shoot a bit Turn 1/2 and then charge. Plan B, is advance everything, shoot at the -1 and then charge T2.


Anyway the list. 2000pts on the nose.

That's not blatant, this is blatant: I'm super happy that I'm playing Austria, the greatest nation in all of Diplomacy!
