(thank you iBodger). 270ish AP

Most of these are still unpainted and even unglued. But not for long !
My goal is to have two playable 50AP lists (painted) for Origins 2012.

I'm looking forward to playing with any of you.
I suck at rolling dice but I don't care about losing if weall had fun. And I shake hand too at the end of the game. And even pay for a drink if it's not the end of the month... lol!

Very nice sir. Could you tell us a little about yourself? I recall hearing that you're French? Where are you from, what will be bringing you to the area?

More ? Well...

I'm French indeed. And I apologize for that Smile

And I'm coming to your neighborhood cause my future wife lives there ! Which is a pretty good excuse.

Very nice, congratulations sir! We had our first official Steamroller Tournament yesterday(17th) and my opponent in the first round was a Cryx player; his play style was far different from the normal Cryx lists I play. So, I very much look forward to see your playstyle along with a new face across the battlefield! Oh, I beat said Cryx player by the way. Wink

I'm looking forward to meeting you all and facing you in-game.

I chose Cryx as a reaction to my former Retribution army. I wanted more HtH combat instead of Shooting.

At 50APs a basic list I would play is as follow :

Pirate Queen Skarre
Deathripper
Harrower
Seether
Skarlock thrall

6 bile thralls
10 Mechanithralls + 1 Brute
Necrosurgeon and Stitch thralls
Pistol Wraith
Satyxis raider captain
10 Satyxis raiders + Sea Witch
3 Scrap thralls
Warwitch siren

Real "in your face" army. The point is to get a caster kill round 1 or 2. After that, it becomes hard to not lose a lot of minis each round. Smile

Some very evident combos here like the Satyxis 12" charge (with the captain).

Some more tricky like the Skarlock and scrap which are here to provide focus to Skarre next turn.

Bile thralls and Harrower are here to handle the crowd. Mechanithralls and Seether to take care of the heavies.

Satyxis and Skarre are here to jump at the throat of the warcaster either directly (Skarre at roudn 2 or 3) or indirectly (backlash and the satyxis whips combined on the opponent's jacks) : 12 attacks, with weapon master (one round), potentially, 24 damage points. No warcaster can resist that. What a Face

My collection is pretty total. I'm just missing 3 plastic kits of Crab warjacks which are going to be released next year. I didn't want to get the metal ones knowing that.

Right on, playing 2 other Cryx players there are still things in your army that I have yet to play. And that is what I love about this game! I am rapidly approaching a complete collection... >.< really should stop spending so much money so rapidly. lol Anyhow, I think I will go download the Cryx Forces book and read up on them. Farewell.

It's a week before I move and I glued everything I had but :
- 20 satyxis raiders.
- 20 Bane thralls.
- 10 Bane Knights.
- 5 black Ogrun boarding party.
- Deathjack (OMFG, it will need pinning !!!)
- Lich Lord Terminus (I'm scaaaaaared...)
- the battle engine.

50% of what is glued is also primed in white.

Most of them are still unglued cause my bag is already full and I need new foam trays. Origins will be my eldorado this year.

So when do you think you'll start playing?

We've got 3 regulars, just need you to kick off official leagues/events.

Sadly, my minis won't ship before April, I fear. So the first times I come and visit the store, it's only going to be a visit... Sad

I'm also worried cause I made a stupid bet with some friends that I would have two 35APs lists painted for Origins... Not gonna make it.

It gets worse.

I was denied the entry on the US territory because my visa was deemed not correct.

So my arrival will be wayyyy later than expected. 4 to 9 months later... Evil or Very Mad

Still looking forward to meeting you all. And at least I will have time to paint a bit more.

This is a huge, huge bummer, man.

Good thing I found all those 3 player scenarios!
