Redunculous Muster

Postby cornishlee » Fri Aug 02, 2019 3:15 pm

Fresh from settling on my 1,500 gold Albainn muster, I've turned my attention to my Ysians and I'm doing something... fun?

After spending a bit of time on it, I think this is legal but I'd like to hear if I've made any mistakes:

General:
Carrowek of Carn Dhu + Mount : Unique + Rare (auth. 88, used 73)
5 x Margh Drune : Mainstay
1 x Chimaera : Rare (auth.56)
1 x Seer Drune : Uncommon
3 x Goad Drune : Uncommon (auth.17)
Meat Hulk (bound to goad drune unit)

Commander 1:
Battle Drune : Common (auth. 77)
5 x Ax Drune : Mainstay

Commander 2:
Battle Drune + Mount : Common (auth. 77, used 47)
5 x Margh Drune : Mainstay
1 x Mantichora : Uncommon (auth.47)

If no-one can see any issues, I think I'll need to ask Rob if I can late pledge for the cavalry.

For what it's worth, the route to a 2,000 army involves a unit of brutes under Brugg (which I already have), Doubling the size of the Ax Drune unit (again, I already have these models), a third spell for the seer drune (I could only afford two on this list!) and all the options for the meat hulk and chimaera. So, actually, in making a 1,500 list I'm simultaneously making a 2,000 one.

you need 10 Ax drunes to count as a mainstay, I think that's going to throw your points off
100 mini 2018 - 103 mierce (68 other)
100 mini 2019 - 69 mierce (61 other)

Arse. Yes, it does.

A tiny bit of tinkering and a nearly redundant seer makes it OK, though. Taking him down to 1 spell and removing the veteran option from the margh drunes brings me in at 1,498.

The road to 2,000 is even more about upgrades!

OK, I've spotted a flaw.

According to the latest muster flowcharts, both Chimaeras and Manticores can only be mustered by a Flesh Drune or by Alix, unless they're bound to a goad drune. So I don't think this works (although I'd very happily be told otherwise).

That's a 2nd edition issue so please put any 2nd edition questions in the Warlords section Lee!

OK, after more tinkering, here's where I am now:

General:

Carrowek of Carn Dhu + Mount : Unique + Rare (auth. 88, used 17)
5 x Margh Drune : Mainstay
1 x Chimaera (bound to goad drune unit)
1 x Seer Drune + Mount + Blind + Curse of Kernunnos + Blood Sacrifice : Uncommon
3 x Goad Drune : Uncommon (auth.17)

Commander 1:

Battle Drune + Glaive : Common (auth. 77, used 23)
10 x Ax Drune : Mainstay
5 x Brute + Brute Cage : Uncommon (auth. 23)

Commander 2:

Battle Drune + Mount : Common (auth. 77, used 17)
5 x Margh Drune : Mainstay
1 x Mantichora : Uncommon (bound to goad drune unit)
3 x Goad Drune : Uncommon (auth.17)

Total = 1498 gold

And then:


General:

Carrowek of Carn Dhu + Mount : Unique + Rare (auth. 88, used 63)
5 x Margh Drune + Veteran : Mainstay
1 x Chimaera + Kill-Thing + Triskorpion (bound to goad drune unit)
1 x Seer Drune + Mount + Blind + Rampaging Fury + Blood Sacrifice : Uncommon
3 x Goad Drune : Uncommon (auth.17)
1 x Meat Hulk + Hammers + Hulk Cage : Rare (auth. 46)

Commander 1:

Battle Drune + Glaive : Common (auth. 77, used 23)
10 x Ax Drune + Veteran : Mainstay
5 x Brute + Brute Cage : Uncommon (auth. 23)

Commander 2:

Battle Drune + Mount : Common (auth. 77, used 17)
5 x Margh Drune + Veteran : Mainstay
1 x Mantichora : Uncommon (bound to goad drune unit)
3 x Goad Drune : Uncommon (auth.17)

Total = 1998

If anyone can see any problems with these lists - either under current rules or by the likely time I'd actually receive the margh drunes (!) then please let me know (either here or by DM).
