The Druken Bodger "Best of the Worst" Design Thread

Post  Dark Aletheia on Fri May 25, 2012 3:11 pm

So, I'm super pumped about this event. Since this isn't an official Steamroller event, I hope to have a chance to play (if we have an odd number of players).

Here's my first stab at a terrible list. Any idea how to make it more sucky?

23 Pts - Cygnar Army

Battlegroup (3#, 6 pts)
1 Captain E. Dominic Darius, 0 pts
1 Lancer, 6 pts

Trencher Infantry (6#, 6 pts)
6 Trencher Infantry, 6 pts = 6 * 1

Support - Unit (2#, 2 pts)
1 Trencher Chaingun Crew, 0 pts
1 Leader, 1 pts
1 Grunt, 1 pts

Lord Rockbottom, Expedition Financier (1#, 2 pts)
1 Rockbottom, 2 pts

Doc Killingsworth (1#, 2 pts)
1 Doc, 2 pts

Dirty Meg (1#, 2 pts)
1 Meg, 2 pts

Madelyn Corbeau, Ordic Courtesan (1#, 2 pts)
1 Madelyn, 2 pts

Master Gunner Dougal MacNaile (1#, 2 pts)
1 Dougal MacNaile, 2 pts

Journeyman Warcaster (1#, 3 pts)
1 Warcaster, 3 pts

Support - Solo (1#, 1 pts)
1 Reinholdt, Gobber Speculator, 1 pts


I'm a little worried that the chain gun crew might be too effective against squishy infantry, which might contribute to getting more APs than I want. I'll have to think of a substitution....

Damn, you stole my idea of putting pirate solos in a list without pirates to buff, although I was thinking about Grogspar. I guess I didn't read the rules that closely in my joy at seeing what the event was. I didn't know we could come in points under. Now I have to rethink my first list. It is over by 2 points.

It helps that I have a brand-spankin'-new Pirate army and know them a bit. Rockbottom and Doc really eat up those points and are somewhat worthless without the Sea Dog crews. I'd be careful with Grogspar, however. He's got a decent gun, a medium base, and that giant hook can do throws.

Yeah, in SR 2012, you can come in 1-2 points below the point value of the event. Usually, you wouldn't go for that as it wouldn't get you any advantage, but for this event it does. I thought I'd go full-on SR rules rather than introduce confusion by using some and ignoring others. So, this 25 point event is in actuality a 23-25 point event.

I've got Dirty Meg in there and won't be of much help to the Lancer.

Any idea of how to use up Darius' Warjack points without taking a 'jack? I'm asking honestly, as there might be a way to do it that I'm not aware of. I'd love to run Darius with no 'jacks (as that would completly screw over his feat), but don't know how to pull that off within the SR rules.

Nope no other way to spend these points. But the lancer is actually kinda potent with him. Good resilience and arc node and reach... Just switch for a the charger (focus eater) or the sentinel (lots of cheap fire but bad RAT and focus eating too). Or worse, a Firefly, as Darius has nothing for this jack.

The thing that I'm most worried about with Darius is his ARM. It's base 18, can be jacked up to 20 with Fortify. If he sits on his remaining FOC after paying to upkeep Fortify, that puts him at ARM 25. Not impossible, put pretty damn hearty, and even more so in an environment where opponents are going to be fielding weak, unsynergistic stuff.

I don't have a Firefly, but I'll look into that...

Normally, I'd agree with you. The catch is that Darius comes with +5 Warjack points. Both the Charger and the Sentinel are 4 pt. models, while the Lancer is 6 pts. If I put out a Charger or Sentinel, I'd have to field another 'jack to burn up that last point and with Darius I want as little metal on the field is possible.

I am concerned about Darius using the Lancer's arc node for Arcantrik Bolt, however. It's not a killer spell, but it does make 'jacks Stationary, so that's a point of worry.

Replace the trenchers with Ogrun Assault Corps (without the ranking officer) and get a grenadier as a jack. Smile

Was a very interesting event. Aparently overloading lesser warlocks wasnt just my stroke of genious.

Things I learned

Snappers are lethal little missiles, free charges and sustained attack are a glorious assasination tool. Should play with them out front more.

When every gun is power ten Rasheth is suprisingly tanky.

Rasheth can always have a transfer tanget

troll burrowers do not suck in any way shape or form, and adding in a fell caller makes them better

I need to play Rorsh and Brine more
