So, inspired by some of the artwork in the battletome, i thoughtid try writing a fyreslayers list.

Be as brutal as you like, i have a few questions off the bat:

Do people take multiple magmadroths? They seem cheap enough points wise

Do i have too many characters?

Cant decide between tiny hearthguard unit or minimum vulkite for core tax, went vulkite for variety but not sold yet...

Anyway


Runefather
-general

Runeson on magmadroth
-javelins

runemaster

Runesmiter

Battlesmith

Grimwrath berzerker

30 vulkite berzerkers
-twin axes

10 vulkite berzerkers
-picks and shields

15 hearthguard berzerkers
-poleaxes

30 auric hearthguard


Lords of the lodge battallion


1960pts



I dont like the runemaster on paper, seems the buff he gives the enemy is a bit too strong, but he is a tax for the lodge and i like the rules that gets...

Obviously the hearthguard will deepstrike with the runesmiter (hopefully to take out the enemy buffed unit!!!), maybe ond if the combat units if the enemy dont have any juicy targets for the hearthguard

But, any thoughts welcome ^_^

Assuming you want to build a list on the strongest end of the scale:

-Four magmadroths are auto-take at 2k. At least two of them are runesmiters.

-The other two characters are a two battlesmiths, or one smith one smiter on foot if you want to tunnel in.

-30 man vulkite units are your battleline. Failing that just take the minimum size, never take anything other than the minimum or maximum.

Beyond that you can fill it with whatever you like and you'll have a strong list. Optimize it well and you can reach tournament-cheese level.

Is a min/maxed Fyreslayer army even remotely considered cheese vs. other min/maxed armies?

I play:
40K: Daemons, Genestealer Cults
AoS: Blades of Khorne
Warmachine: Convergence of Cyriss
Infinity: Haqqislam, Combined Army
Malifaux: Gremlins,Neverborn
Wrath of Kings: Shael Han
Dark Age: Brood, Kukulkani
Guild Ball: Morticians, Brewers
