Hello friends,

I’m just getting back into Warmachine. after a loooong absence (last time I played there was only Prime Mk I and Escalation). I got my old Cygnar army out of storage - I have some 50 points worth - and I’d like to grow it into a proper 75pt army.

I’m about to list all the models I currently own, and what I’m looking for is recommendations on what else I could buy to give myself a solid 75-pt list, plus any additional models I might want to have to give myself list-building options to counter different enemy builds.

I have:
Commander Coleman Striker
Lt. Allister Caine
Charger
Ironclad
Lancer
Sentinel
Journeyman Warcaster
Arcane Tempest Gun Mages (5+sgt)
Field Machaniks (3+sgt)
Stormblade Infantry (5+sgt)
Trencher Infantry (9+sgt)
Trencher Infantry (5+sgt)
Reinholdt, goblin speculator
Eyriss, Mage Hunter of Ios

Just from a usability standpoint, it looks to me like you can get 75 points on the table right now:

Cygnar Army - 74 / 75 points

(Stryker 1) Commander Coleman Stryker [+30]
- Ironclad [12]
- Lancer [10]
- Sentinel [8]
- Reinholdt, Gobber Speculator [4]
Eiryss, Mage Hunter of Ios [7]
Journeyman Warcaster [4]
- Charger [9]
Arcane Tempest Gun Mages [11]
Field Mechaniks (min) [3]
Stormblade Infantry [10]
Trencher Infantry (min) [10]
Trencher Infantry (max) [16]

Pretty obvious that this isn't optimized (surely the min Trenchers should become upgrades for the max squad? does anybody play out of theme at this point? and is Stryker1 still relevant?* is a lil' Squire buddy not required?), but you could conceivably get back in the action

However here's where my abilities tap out, especially when it comes to Cygnar
Spoiler:
But I was compelled to add a bunch of officers anyway:

Cygnar Army - 75 / 75 points

(Stryker 1) Commander Coleman Stryker [+30]
- Ironclad [12]
- Lancer [10]
- Sentinel [8]
- Squire [5]
Eiryss, Mage Hunter of Ios [7]
Journeyman Warcaster [4]
- Charger [9]
Arcane Tempest Gun Mages [11]
Field Mechaniks (min) [3]
Stormblade Infantry [10]
- Stormblade Infantry Officer & Standard [5]
Trencher Infantry (max) [16]
- Trencher Infantry Officer & Sniper [5]

No doubt still mediocre!

*Looking at his kit, those OG support spells still seem pretty boss! Nothing wrong with +ARM, +DEF, +RNG and knocking stuff down.

Thanks Boss Salvage.

I can order the squire, the Stormblade officer & standard, and the Trencher officer & sniper right away.

You mention at the end that this list is still probably still mediocre at best though...

Does anybody have a good idea of what I might swap out to morph this into a super good list?
(the sort of list that synergies really well, has a strategy to deal damage and win, and has resilience to take hits and lose some models without falling apart.)

From what I was reading, those officers really do great things for those units, and are essentially auto-includes. And squire I've faced in like every Cygnar list, though it seems extra helpful for supporty Stryker. So I don't think you'll go wrong with those purchases.

Larger changes - such as getting a more modern or in-meta caster - I'm just not the guy to give advice on, between Cygnar and not playing a ton of WMH these days.
