Hey folks!

This thread is for posting your favorite army lists.  I'm going to try and put them into a compilation in the War Room for the newer players.  If you have a race-specific army list, like the Vampire Slayers or the Orc Slayers, make certain you indicate that in your post.  Try and keep comments down on other folks lists, unless it is illegal or truly unique in some fashion.  Please no "nice list" comments!  Of course it is a nice list it is on this site :D

I will go back and edit out comments if necessary to insure the "purity" of the thread.  You can post multiple lists, just put them in different posts please so that it isn't hard to read.

NO ARMY BUILDER FORMAT POSTS!  I will SO delete your post and send you a nastygram to boot!

Quote
I apologize if comments aren't wanted in this thread, delete or move if necessary.

I'd like to make the suggestion that people comment their armylists. If we readers got a bit more info on why the different units are in the army it would be even more useful. Just simple stuff like :

"this unit will be my anvil unit that will try to hold the center while i flank" or
"this unit is only here to secure my right flank against skirmishers and fast movers".

Observations from the designers on the strengths and weaknesses of the lists would also be great.


I concur on this and all army lists post would be much better with these comments.

The Mountainguard of Averland (2000 points)

Grandmaster of the Order of the Sullen Crescent, Warden of the Blackfire Pass - cavalry hammer, Helm of the skavenslayer

Warrior Priest of Sigmar - heavy armour, great weapon

Warrior Priest of Ulric - heavy armour, great weapon

Battle Wizard - level 2, Dispel Scroll, Doomfire Ring (lore of fire)

11 Inner Circle Knights of the Sullen Crescent (as White Wolves) - full command, War Banner

25 Swordsmen - full command
Detachment: 10 free company
Detachment: 5 archers

25 Halberdiers - full command
Detachment: 10 free company
Detachment: 5 archers

10 Handgunners - marksman with repeater handgun
Detachment: 5 crossbowmen

5 Bergjaegers (Huntsmen)

5 Pistoliers - marksman with repeater pistol

Great Cannon

12 Flagellants

This list aims for a standard obique attack, while at the same time using what I believe are 'fluffy' choices for the famous Mountainguard of the Blackfire pass. The inner circle knights together with their Grandmaster provide a psycology-immune 'hammer' unit, one of the heaviests threats The Empire can produce. I could have gone all the way and taken the Laurels of Victory, but I would prefer not to spend too many points, even on this unit. The Helm is there purely because I have an irrational liking for it, not because it is much good, and it would probably be better to trade in both it and the Warbanner in favour of the banner of Arcane Warding.

The two priests, each leading an infantry unit, help to compensate for the mostly-absent leadership of the general. By taking one of each priest, I maximise the chances of having hatred against my opponent, and also increase the selection of prayers I have access to. With four power dice and three bound spells I have a reasonable chance of getting off a prayer or spell or two - my magic defence is also pretty good at 5 dice, and a scroll for emergencies.

For my infantry units I chose swordsmen and halberdiers, since these are the weapons favoured by the Mountainguard (according to the Mordheim Averlanders pdf). The archer detachments can act as a missile screen, or move forwards to marchblock and annoy the enemy. Pistoliers and huntsmen are present as in almost every list I write (because they are great of course!).

The handgunners, crossbows and cannon serve as the (rather light) fire section of the army. The flagellants join them to hold the flank as only they can.

Not the most powerful list there is, but I like it. :roll:

    Hello. Had to edit the army, my gaming group has dropped down to 2000pt games.

    The army of New Solland.

    Characters:

    Elector Count (goes with the Greatswords)
    Sword of Sigismund, Holy Relic
    Full Plate, Shield
    190pts

    Warrior Priest (Spearmen unit)
    Great Weapon, Heavy Armour, Shield
    Sigil of Sigmar, Doomfire Ring
    150pts

    Battle Wizard
    Lv2, Rod of Power
    140pts

    Core:
    20 Swordsmen
    Full Command
    165pts

    20 Halberdiers
    FC, Shields
    165pts

    25 Spearmen (Priest's Unit)
    Champion, Musician, Shields
    190pts

    Detachment: 10 Free Company: 50pts

    20 Spearmen
    FC, Shields
    165pts

    10 Handgunners
    80pts

    10 Handgunners
    80pts

    10 Crossbowmen
    80pts

    Special:

    20 Greatswords (Counts Unit)
    FC, Banner of Valor
    310pts

    Detachment: 10 Free Company: 50pts

    Great Cannon 100pts

    Mortar 75pts

    Total: 2000pts

    My current tactics:

    Generally my plan has been to try and reduce a few ranks on enemy units and then charge in. The swordsmen tend to be a bait unit against stronger units. I usually put them next to the Greatswords then have them flee when the enemy charges them, hopefully exposing their flank to the Generals unit.  Recently I have been experimenting with leaving the Halberdiers guarding missile troops and war machines. While I might lose one unit to skirmishers or Fast Cavalry they tend to run into the Halberdiers more often than not. Everything else tends to support each other.

    Core:

    24 Swordsmen, full command, griffon banner @ 353
    Detachment 1: 8 halberdiers
    Detachment 2: 10 free companies

    Detachment 2: 10 free companies
    (A defencive unit used to hold a flank and eventually protect a cannon)

    1 Helblaster @ 125
    (Used for making the enemy not wanting to attack the obvious weak left flank where the spearmen are positioned)

    Lords and Heroes
    Elector count- great weapon, full plate armour, Holy Relic = 143

    Captain- BSB, full plate armour, banner of sigismund= 143 *Leads swordmen without griffon banner*

    Wizard- dispel scroll, dispel scroll= 110

    Warrior priest- Barded warhorse, great weapon = 115 *leads IC knights*

    Core
    24 swordsmen, command, griffon banner = 293
    Detachment 1- 10 free company

    24 swordsmen, command= 243
    Detachment- 10 free company

    10 handgunners= 80
    10 handgunners=80

    5 knights of the inner circle, command, warbanner 195

    Specials
    20 Greatswords, command = 290
    Detachment- 10 free company

    5 Pistoliers, marksman w/repeater pistol= 112

    1 cannon= 100

    Rare
    1 helblaster= 125

    Total =1999 points.

    This army is an army I sometimes use as an all comers list. It is very user friendly and easy to play with. The infantry holds the line while the shooting weakens key units and the Cavalry and Pistoliers perform flanking manouvers.

    The key to the army is the fact that there are 2 stubborn units and a unit with the griffon banner and a  battles standard lurking around also which makes it a very hard army to beat in combat. I like this army and I think it can be utilised by newer players to the game against newer opponents and will fair quite well.

    Baron von Grensvent's border army


    Baron von Grensvent: Elector count
    Has a 4+ ward save and rides around on Beaky the griffon, wildly flailing around with a great weapon.

    Grensvent jr. Captain
    Has a dragon bow and rides around on Ol' Flappy the pegasus

    Sir Prayalot: Warrior priest of Sigmar
    He and his unit are immune to fear and he rides around on a warhorse

    The wizard:
    A 1st level wizard, but everyone thinks he's fourth level
    Rides around on a horse and carries 2 dispel scrolls with him.

    The red knights of the inner circle
    6 hard knights with full cmd. Banner of +1 CR

    The blue knights
    5 hard knights, banner which gives +d3 movement. Sir Prayalot rides with these. Banner + first knight

    The red and blue knights
    5 die-hard knights. The wizard rides with these guys.
    First knight.

    The young uns: Pistoliers
    5 pistoliers

    The even younger uns: Pistoliers
    5 pistoliers

    The castle guard:
    20 swordsmen, full cmd: elector's troops: banner of the griffon
    Detachment 1: 5 archers (pub arrow shooting contest winners)
    Detachment 2: 10 free company troops (the pub crowd)

    The gatherers: 5 huntsmen

    The diseased: 10 flaggalants



    For the benefit of Simon:
    Tactics:

    Position the knight units opposite the weakest units of the enemy (lines of crossbow men or archers or whatever).
    Position the griffon for best chance of a flank attack.
    Position the pistoliers as a shield for knights, or in best positions to flank attack.
    Position the swordsmen, detachments and flaggalants opposite the enemies best troops.
    Position the pegasus to take out lone wizards and warmachines.

    The enemy will have to use everything available to try to halt the onslaught of very fast units.
    This gives the infantry time to move forward and get the best possible position for combat.

    The basic idea is to pierce the enemy line in one or two points, swivel the knights about and force the enemy's best unit into the infantry, charging them from behind.

    After its initial flank charge, the griffon just prances about scaring anything it can and charging anything I think it can handle.

    The dispel scrolls are for the first round (or maybe second) of the game, to absolutely block anything aimed at the initial march and charge of the knights.

    I believe it to be essential to pierce the enemy lines in round two. If this doesn't happen, I fear the battle will become messy at best.

    *note*
    I'm still busy building this army, so I can't report on its merits quite yet.

    Grandmaster Echols Expedition:

    Grandmaster Echols and his Knights Panther Cavalry division has been assigned to Altdorf on ceremonial duty.  This is part of the normal rotation of all of the "old" knightly orders.  A massive Chaos incursion calls most major combat units back to the north.  At the exact same instant, one of the Dukes of Bretonnia decides to start a border skirmish.  Karl Franz, the Reiksgaurd and all of the Steamtanks move northward.  Karl dispatches Grandmaster Echols, and a ragtag force from the city of Altdorf, College of Engineers, and a wizard from the rarely assigned College of Light to assist Grandmaster Echols on the border.  

    (Note this list is similar to Queeks, great minds think alike.  Count Von Aichmaan is at home recovering from wounds suffered from the feared necromancer-zombie Festus, at the Battle of Wurzhofen)

    Grandmaster Echols Expedition:

    Grandmaster Echols, Grandmaster of the Knights Panther, Laurels of Victory (deployed as a floater)=230 pts

    Wilhelm Goering, WP of Sigmar, Heavy Armor, Great Weapon, Barded Warhorse=117 pts

    Hauptmaan Fisiel, Battle Captain on Pegasus, FPA, Sh, Lance (on loan from the Vampire Slayers)=116 pts

    Zan Zar the Bright, Level 2 Wizard, Barded Warhorse, 2 x dispel magic scrolls (rides with the naked knight unit)=159 pts

    Core:
    Ceremonial Guard of Altdorf

    Panterus Rex, First Knights Panther, The Teeth of the Panther
    6 Inner Circle Knights, Full Command, Steel Standard (Sometimes lead by the GrandMaster)=221 pts

    Panterus Prime, Ceremonial Guard, Garrison duty, The Claws of the Panther
    7 knighty orders, Full Command, War Banner (Lead by Warrior Priest)=226 pts

    Panterus Secondus, Ceremonial Gaurds, Garrison duty, The Eyes of the Panther
    5 Knightly Orders (Lead by Light Wizard)=115 pts

    1st Home Guard Regiment, Engineer School of Altdorf
    10 handgunners, Hochland Long Rifle=105 pts

    Scouts of the Regiment-Detachment 5 archers=40 pts

    2nd Home Guard Regiment, Engineer School of Altdorf
    10 handgunners, Hochland Long Rifle=105 pts

    Powder Handlers-Detachment 5 Free Company=25 pts

    Scouts of the Great Woods-5 Huntsmen=50 pts

    1st Home Guard, Crossbows Militia of Altdorf
    10 crossbows=80 pts

    Special Troops:
    Altdorf Garrison, on assignment to Grandmaster Echols
    5 Pistoliers=95 pts

    Home Guard Artillery Battalion:
    2 Great Cannons=200 pts

    Rare Troops:
    (Due to the lack of foot infantry regiments, mercenaries were hired to help gaurd the artillery by the Engineers School)
    3 Ogres, Two Hand Weapons, Light Armor=132 pts

    Hellblaster Volley Gun=125 pts
    (They left this one behind because is misfires over 75% of the time, it was pressed back into service for GrandMaster Echols expedition)


    Strategy:

    This army is strong yet weak.  It is weak because there is only one ranked unit and that is cavalry (though it is rarely deployed ranked).  It is strong because it combines most of the best things in an Empire army. (A note, because these are all Knights Panthers, Grandmaster Echols can easily move between units as needed, just in case one of them gets too shot or magicked up)

    Because of my lack of finesse on the attack, I use this army as a counter puncher army.  I usually elect to go second unless there is a big nasty to cannon on the first turn.  I try and deploy so that if the enemy has cavalry, they cannot charge me until turn 3 at the earliest, longer if my marchblockers are in place.

    All the marchblockers and diverters stream forward on my first turn, and I shoot until I can't shoot anymore, while moving my knights for the charge.  None of the infantry units have standards, so unless the enemy breaks the knights, there will be very few victory points to garner.  However, when I have lost with this army, it is because the enemy has rampaged through my back lot and killed all my soft stuff.  

    I put the detachments on the handgunners partially to marchblock and partially to help me avoid getting killed by ambushers and tunnelling teams.  

    I did try this army with medium magic and a steady diet of miscasts convinced me that an army with magic isn't for me.  My compromise was to bring back my Warrior Priest.  This still gives me 4 dispel dice, and two scrolls.  It also gives me a much heavier hitting cavalry unit with his hatred.  I chose Lore of Light for a couple of reasons.  The default spell gives the magic user 3 ST 5 attacks.  Most of the other spells are easily cast.  My hope is to attempt to cast two low level spells per turn and the bound spell of the Warrior Priest.  Not the most impressive magical attack, but it might work against a caddy dude. What I'm hoping is that I cast the spells and the other guy forgets to dispel them in his magic phase.  I did try this with a Heaven wizard, but without a second caster, no one would let me cast the vital Second Sign spell needed to let the Hochlands be maximum effective.  I'm just hoping the threat of them is enough to scare some people away.  If I were a magic user, I would be scared of this army because of all the fast stuff and the pegasus can go hunt dudes outside of units.  However, if I don't get into combat quickly, magic will decimate my forces.

    Army of Nuln

    My original list had a steam tank, but after much wining it has been 'dumbed' down. 2 cannons and 1 hellblaster should be enough to handle any point sinks coming towards empire lines. Knights and pistoliers covering each flank while the swordmen + griffen banner and the stubborn greatswords provide a great anchor.....provided they dont run off the table.
