2000G Byzantii host

Postby Krikke » Thu Jan 11, 2018 8:54 pm

Greetings all,

I have been hard at work lately working on a list and getting models painted. I was hoping to get some feedback regarding the list and to see if I didn't make any mistakes. So here it goes.

* Centurion (general)
authority 86 uncommon 62 gold

+Host Command

* gladiator
authority 78 uncommon 48 gold

* signifer
authority 67 common 43 gold

* magus infernum
authority 36 uncommon 173 gold
spells: demonic possession, quicken, summon demon

+ General's command

* 8 x veteran legionarius
authority 20 mainstay 136 gold
free command

* skorpio + 2 ballistarius
authority 20 uncommon 46 gold

* skorpio + 2 ballistarius
authority 20 uncommon 46 gold

+ Demioption's command

* Demioption
authority 73 common 70 gold
light armour

* 8 x demilegionarius
authority 18 mainstay 304 gold
free command

* hippoxus
authority 29 uncommon 174 gold

+ Option's command

* Option
authority 74 common 47 gold

* 8 x veteran legionarius
authority 20 mainstay 136 gold
free command

* ballista + 4 ballistarius
authority 20 uncommon 107 gold
* onager + 2 ballistarius
authority 20 uncommon 57 gold

+ Allied Infernii command

* Servile champion
authority 85 rare 337 gold

* 3 x fiends of dis
authority 29 mainstay 213 gold

Total of 1999 gold.

I was thinking of talking less/cheaper spells on the magus to maybe upgrade the ballistarius to veteran. Don't really know, let me know what you think.

Cheers,

Krikke

Hi Krikke

I've not checked gold nor authorities (although it looks fine at first glance), please note.

My only concern would be your hitting power - yes, of course, the Ballistae hit hard, as does the Hippoxus and the Fiends, and there is definitely value in not giving your enemy a high-profile target - but I'd be tempted to bulk the Fiends up to 5 somehow, to be honest.

But that's a small criticism - I think it's actually rather subtle, and exactly the kind of thing I'd go for - except that I'd prefer a slightly bigger hammer...

Cheers
Rob
