Maro based list

Recommended Posts

Ive came up with another approach to necromancer maro and i want you feedback about this list. Its pretty light on units but in my opinion its pretty universal.

199/200
Ankaur Maro [40] 1x1
Heartseeker [10]
Violent Forces [6]
Total Unit Cost: 56

Reanimates [50] 3x3
Deathcaller [5]
Support Carrion Lancer [6]
Blighted Vexillum Bearer [3]
Simultaneous Orders [2]
Total Unit Cost: 66

Reanimate Archers [45] 3x2
Close Quarters Targeting [3]
Total Unit Cost: 48

Death Knights [24] 2x1
Obcasiums Gauntlet [5]
Total Unit Cost: 29

 

Whole concept with heartseker is to keep that expensive maro alive to let him add up trays and potentially kill some stuff. With that articack he can just move right behind the reanimate block (or archers) and keep attackig the same unit the block is engaged with. Aditionally Reanimates use good old deathcaller blight combo for high armor targets and archers are another threat with their 3 wide formation and ability to shot into close combat. Death knights are supoosed to flank and protect rest of the army form enemy flankers adn thanks to obcasium gauntlet they can deal with such things with ease. What do you think?

In my opinion The only way that makes sense if you're wanting to use Maro for bringing in trays is to have regenerative magic. And honestly violent forces is dangerous, just because 4unstable gives you one health left. That's a dangerous game, without regenerative magic, you will need to roll an eventual 8 surges or use his surge modifier, but anyone not taking 2 hits or a mortal wound is crazy. I think the only way to run Maro for the specific desire to bring in trays is in a 3x2 of reanimates or a 2x2 with ardus on the field.

Sorry it was a double post. I'll also use my accidental extra post and ask why is only SOME of your stuff in Spanish?

It's because these dead lived in north america.  Some of them spoke Spanish and some English, so Maro and the dispatch runner Reanimates actually have a hard time communicating some days.

What’s “attack the big fat guy before he eats us all?” In Spanish? 

Does the dispatch runner have one of those language CDs?

I actually find this list very strong. All it has to do is keep quite close together, and Maro will be just fine. 

Kari is his main enemy, But she can be taken out by deathcaller, archers and DK's.

Fortunately his skill ability is "up to" the number of runes, so you can always choose a more conservative number.

I've been kicking around a Maro and Vorunthul based list.

12 trays of reanimates, executioner, Vorunthul, cursed signets, aggressive drummer, lingering dead

6 trays of reanimates, Maro

And... 56 more points.

 

Vorunthul adds brutal 1 and lets you swap a die for white.  The executioner is golden against Ulthuk, so many multiwound models.  Cursed Signets prevent banes for slowing down the wrecking train and lingering dead keeps trays around.  The musician slot was a toss up for me between Aggressive Drummer and the reform after destroying.  In a game against Ulthuk, the reanimate horde did 15 damage against a spined thresher block; 7 damage go through, 4 finished off the wounded thresher, put 2 on a thresher, and 1 on another thresher.  Then the executioner offed the thresher that had 1 wound on it.  

Maro adds trays to the death star, and Maro's unit hangs a little back behind the Vorunthul death star.

I would go with  Triumphant Cry since you want that massive unit fighting as many turns as possible.

I'd probably fill the rest of the list with Lancers to protect flanks and a single 2x1 Archers with Rank.
