Encounter Muster using a Starter Host

Postby Alex (ÉgB) » Thu Dec 21, 2017 10:02 pm

So, I'm toying with the idea of adding some extra Kindred at the 499 level. I've started writing up lists for 499 gold with the idea of basing each one off a Starter Host.

For Anglecynn I have the following, would it work?

Thegn
10 Gesith (M) full command
5 Werwulf (C) full command
2 Freawulf (bound)

(as a host command)
Hornblawere

Comes to 494 (but could give the Thegn extra armour, warhammer or a bow and still come under 500).

Has anyone got any alternative ideas or will this be OK?

Hi,
Only the forthegn Compels the gesith, not the thegns. It changes a bit the possible lists.

Hi Antoine, good catch! I'd started out basing it on a Forthegn and at some point tried changing it without checking compels for the Thegn!

Here's the revised list:

Forthegn
10 Gesith (M) full command
4 Werwulf (C) shields, Champion
2 Freawulf (bound)

(as a host command)
Hornblawere

Comes to 491 so might give the Forthegn the armour upgrade too.

Although I'll have to wait for the Starter Host to include the new Eoric's Pack before I go ahead with this...

Or do I do the following based on the Geoguth starter host?

Cempa
10 Geoguth (M) full command)
10 Wulf (C)
10 Wulf (C)
5 Freawulf (C)

(as a host command)
Hornblawere
Fanaberend

Which comes to 493 (so could take the helm upgrade for the Cempa perhaps).

I think the Gesith-based host is a strong one, each unit can do a job on his own.
The Geoguth-based one has the avantage of having more activations, but all the units seem a bit weak, and might face issues against many ennemies. You can probably handle with that by tactical positionings and moves, but it's harder to play.
