It looks like the intent is to go full competitive. If so the Magmadroths will under-deliver, and can easily be cut. A unit of Auric Hearthguard or two will provide a lot more value. They can either be a cheap unit of five for absorbing cheeky wounds on your heroes, or a larger unit with a Runersmiter for sniping/monster-hunting.

Also a cheap unit of allied Gyrocopters has been a standard for me lately. Three of them as horde cleaners, and objective grabbers are terrific for their discounted price (if you take them as one unit of three).

Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. The intent is to be able to hold my own in the game, not necessarily top level competition.

For competitive, but short of "no fun allowed" you definitely have a strong list that will still give your opponent's avenues to success. :-)

For me, I'm finding the max unit Hearthzerker/LotL to be kind of a trap.

600 points in troops, 140 for Battalion and the requirment to take the three characters(one of which, the Runemaster, I'd probably never take outside of LotL) = over 1000 in points. Even more if you go with the Magmadroth . I kind of struggle to fit everything I want in the list when I go this route.

It may be that I've just gotten bored with it, but I've been going 15-20 Hearthzerkers and just getting more goodies. 15-20 Hearthzerkers plus LotL is still one of the scarier units in the game imo. I get that we lose the discount, but I like the extra toys to play with.

I tended to struggle with objective based scenarios with the 30 man unit as everything else in the army is fairly fragile and I'd try to keep it close to the B-smith and the Priests. It didn't feel like an army so much as just a really big unit.

YMMV of course. LotL is definitely an auto-include, but I've been trying lately to find a better balance between death star and a more "finessey" army with more options. Might not be possible with the tools available to the Fyreslayers, but I've been having a blast trying to find that sweet spot and it keeps things fresh for my opponents.

Edit: Not saying you shouldn't play the list above, it was and still can be useful for me, but I'm just moving away from it, is all.

Why do you have 2 rune fathers? drop the one that is not on the magamadroth or drop the one on the droth and get aurics.
