A is for Alaitoc (List for Comp)
« on: November 24, 2017, 08:58:01 PM »

Swooping Hawks [72pts]
. 4x Swooping Hawk
. Swooping Hawk Exarch: Hawk's Talon, Power sword

+ Flyer +

Hemlock Wraithfighter [210pts]: Jinx

Hemlock Wraithfighter [210pts]: Horrify

++ Total: [1749pts] ++

7 CP total.


Tactics and Stuff:

3 units of Hawks, 3 rangers, and Illic all start off the board.

Two Hemlocks, 2 Defender squads, 3 reapers, Autuarch and Farseer all start on the board. Spears may be on the Board or in the WWP.

Dual Hemlocks are gonna be a huge threat and should draw a good bit of fire. Reapers sit back and do their thing.

Rangers, Atuarch, and Illic are gonna snipe at any characters.

Defenders will hide back and move up for objectives latter on. Spears will hit a doomed unit as able to.

So, what your saying is it's not your fault you look stupid by using words you don't get?
Flawless logic.

One thought is you are running Shimmerplume of Achillrial, when instead you could run then Shiftshroud of Alanssair, which acts just about the same for a shooty unit like your Autarch but also gives additional abilities that could help you out.

Why not take both relics? That would mean 3 sneaky characters.

The list does lack some anti-tank IMO, maybe dropping the shining spears for a crimson hunter?
For the remaining points you could almost fit a warlock or a spiritseer, maybe you don't need both a fusion pistol and a fusion gun on the autarch?
This way you could claim more CP for having an outrider detachment and an air wing.

Either way check the point cost for the AML on the reaper exarch again.

I had meant to put the shfitshroud on the Autuarch - not the Shimerplume.... oops lol. Thanks


I do feel it is a tad lacking in AI...hmm

How bout this
Drop the Fusion pistol one squad of Hawks and Reapers, and pick up two dual BL Walker

This does fix the anti-tank issue, but you are not getting any extra CP's and I still think you have a bit overweight on dealing with multiwound units, as that is the favored target for shining spears, hemlocks and dark reapers alike.
While they are not terrible against heavy infantry and light vehicles, I think you could have a better balance. Not sure exactly how though.

I also wonder a bit why some units are not merged, like the Dark reapers and the Guardians?
