My gaming group usually plays 1,500 points. This has two main reasons:
a) we can play 1,500 points in slightly over an hour
b) we have several newer players who don't have a large collection yet. 1,500 is better manageable than 2,000 or 2,500.
c) If need be, we can play 2 games at a time on my table + one 2x4' board which I have bought some time ago. This makes for two 4x4 boards.
We originally started out with 1,200 and increased to 1,500. Now we've sorta grown into there and it's working perfectly fine.
For my next battle, I'm rebuilding my Brotherhood army. (it features a lot of models that need updating; see for more info my blog ->kingsofwarvince.business.blog/2019/01/25/a-new-project-brotherhood/
The army list being:
-Regiment of Abyssal Hunt / mace of crushing
-Regiment of Redemption
-3 regiments of vilein initiates
-2 troops of reconnoiterers
-Mounted Exemplar / sword of Slashing
-mounted adjudant / flute of bane chant
Total 1,500 points exactly.
Though I fear fliers (having no flier counters at all) I hope to be able to apply enough force on one part of the battlefield not to be thwarted too much by fliers. Else, the mounted exemplar will need to sacrifice himself in order to keep the dragon grounded for a turn or two....
Against gunlines or infantry lists, it'll work nice. I really hope to face that all-shooter goblin list which has been bugging the gamer group, since I'll be in his face turn 2.
Any ideas? Better use of points?
