Daqan Strats

Recommended Posts

So anyone have any good Daqan Combos or Strategies around? I know Dispatch runner is great for them. I have tried two 4 tray Oathsworn under Hawthorne where one is a 4x1 and other other is 2x2. With rank discipline and Raven Tabards, they perform well. Tempered steel for more damage potential. Hawthorne I run with Fortuna's Dice and Might of Daqan. Follow up with a couple of Rune Golems to run Interference.

Do you find Fortuna's Dice is worth putting on Hawthorne? His lack of rerolls does suck, but it seems like the Shield of Margath is going to do more work over the course of a game. I'm hoping for more generic damage artifacts as time goes on to use with Sweeping Strikes - parking him in terrain makes for a pretty huge attack area.

I've found a 3x2 of Spearmen with the Eagle Banner Bearer works great with Hawthorne. Jamming Carrion Lancers are the bane of my existence, and being able to instantly delete one is really nice. Outside of the full deathstar, spearmen get pretty outmatched by Reanimates point for point, and the Eagle Banner helps them perform well against other targets.

I'm also a big fan of the 2x1 Spearmen with Rallying Cornicen. 22 points lets you support your combat units by refreshing Tempered Steel or removing banes, and if they get a flank charge they can do some decent damage. Also make decent terrain holders, if they rally and armor up it takes 16 damage to remove them which is pretty decent!

Uncontrolled Geomancer is definitely strong, but sort of wants a Greyhaven Channeler in the army, and I've been fairly disappointed with that guy. 6 points is pretty steep, recasting runes is far from a guarantee, and to top it off he exhausts. So far in play it's been a large investment for very little payout.

This one is kind of a no-brainer, but Kari with Fortuna's Dice does a ton of work. Her ranged attack can pretty reliably do 6 damage, or she can dial in the accuracy to assassinate figure upgrades. Then once she gets into melee she does her thing, very dangerous.

Considering I could only take one hero yes I found it worth it. I had one instance of doing 10 damage with him. 

Prefer reaping blade on him given the 3 blank faces.  Sure it suffers against grunts but shines against siege/heroes. Saves 2 points too.  Equip reaping blade and you'll never roll a blank again, despite how badly you want to delete that golem ?
