Unofficially Official Update Corsairs Army List
« on: October 5, 2018, 09:38:47 AM »
So I have been working on an updated Corsairs Army List.  The one that SHOULD have been written for us.  I was motivated primarily by their complete unplayability in matched play until the very recent FAQ, but the current situation is still a slap in the face.

When I say updated list, I mean the whole enchilada, stratagems, obsessions, coterie specializations, warlord traits, etc.

I expect to be another 2 to 3 weeks until it is polished and ready to release.  To prove I'm serious, I've pasted a couple units and some special rules below.  This is a work in progress, so bear with me, but much of it is useable.

Please give me any and all feedback.  I'm going to need playtesters to make this work.  My ultimate hope is that I can hand this to GW, and/or FW and say, "here you go, I've done your job for you, now give us a proper list, and go ahead and copy whatever you want from this."

I can't post the whole thing, but I will post what I can within the character limit, and may make a 2nd post shortly to show what else I've got written.  Unfortunately much of my careful formatting has been lost.  When I release this it will be both in text, and a clean readable, printable PDF.

Thanks for reading this if you've gotten this far:

Please only post the rules and statistics which you have changed.  Any rules or stats which are the same as those in any of GW's publications need to be removed to comply with forum rule 1.  The moderation team has agreed to give you three days from now to make these changes.  If this does not happen, I'm afraid that the entire topic will have to be removed.
You haunt my in-box like an ex-girl friend could only dream of.
