Spearman's Spearman wave 1 Daqan list 200 points

Recommended Posts


++ Standard Army (Daqan Lords : Wave 0 (2017)) [200 Points] ++

+ Infantry +

Spearmen [84 Points]: 3x3 Trays, Front Line Rune Golem, Lance Corporal, Marching Cornicen, Raven-Pennon Bearer, Shield Wall

Spearmen [39 Points]: 2x2 Trays, Dispatch Runner, Marching Cornicen

Spearmen [39 Points]: 2x2 Trays, Dispatch Runner, Marching Cornicen

Spearmen [38 Points]: 2x2 Trays, Lance Corporal, Marching Cornicen

++ Total: [200 Points] ++

Thoughts? 

 

I like this style of list becuase while I can shove stun tokens onto the bigger group, it can swing away like mad. The Lance Corporal allows that big group in and use a 4 charge with any sort of turn. Hyper flexible while being Brutal so it hits like a 4x3 I think.

I really like it! All those dispatch runners will make it a wall of shred.

I have a couple of questions for you after you get a chance to play it: 

  1. Are you able to get your big spearmen unit to grips with your opponent? If had to face this, I'd be avoiding that thing like the plague.
  2. How do the stun tokens work out on the big unit? Can they really continue to shred in following rounds, or is multiple rounds of stun tokens too much of a hit?
  3. Is 4 units enough to manage objective conditions? Did stun or the smaller size units hamper your pursuit of objectives? Overall, what is your objective strategy?

Still living vicariously for the time being. I'll be able to pick up the box next week, but I wont have time for a game until May :-(

Nice spot on those synergies!

It's the Armada player in me. 

 

Yea. I think the Lance Corporal is an exhaust (I checked it is) so that means a rally is needed to exhaust it which makes me think Wind Runes could so silly things since I do t believe exhaust cards Unexhaust until you Rally.

It only does a single upgrade but Inspiration stacking... Hehehehe

 

Instead of the Lance Corporal you could use the other champion. The War Crier and send the Stun tokens you get... Wait. Darn. Not as effective since the special is a modifier so they can spend a stun to ignore it. Hmmm. Still, inspiration pulls double duty here.

Do we even know much about the Lord? 

We know that he gives out inspiration like candy and can attack every enemy that he is engaged with. What more do you need?

I was able to read him. His special is giving out Inspiration, the plain text is something to do with handing out a second inspiration (likely to a second  unit) and he has the Spearman Surge. 

 

I wonder what he Costs.

Somewhere between 30~40, with my guess being something like 36.

His plain text states: "after you perform a [melee attack], you may perform a [melee attack] against another enemy that has not been targeted by your [melee attack] during this activation."

Or you could run him up and get him flanked then throw his red and white dice with brutal 1 at every enemy in the fight.

Sidebar: I hope his unit upgrade gives that ability.

His attack ability is only good when dual engaging something

Yes, this unit will either want to present a trap, or be the last man standing, however he does have decent stats and likely a cav dial. This means he will be able to, if he choses, ride out ahead of the line and hold a unit or 2 so that you can flank with your other units.
