What Fits Me?

Post  CKO on Sun Mar 31, 2013 3:50 am

I would like to know what faction should I play?

What faction matches my personality or the type of play style you think I will go for?

you seem to play armies that dont like to fight the opponent head on but instead like to manipulate the battlefield so that your units choose the fights and not the opponents. An example of this is your grey knights, they have shunt moves from the dreadknight and the interceptors that draw the enemy army where you want them, another example is your necrons which had a lot of mobility with skimmers. With that in mind i say circle of orboros fits your playstyle because they are very fast, hit hard, and have teleportation and movement shenanigans. Thats my oppinion.

I agree. Field manipulation is defiantly a faction attribute of the Circle. But if I can make a recommendation, it would be to take a look at all the factions. While none of the other faction’s attempt to control the board the way that the Circle dose, certain Warcasters and Warlocks from other factions can do it to, and in some cases, even better. good hunting.

Every faction has a caster that manipulates the battlefield in a manner. If I where you chad I'd look up the battlecollege and read up on every faction. I know how you are with analyzing everything so I suggest this would be a good place for you to start if your wanting to fit you in this game.

http://battlecollege.wikispaces.com/


That site even though it's a wiki is up-kept by some guys from the privateerpress forums so most of the info is spot on for giving ideas on how everything works for the factions as far as synergy goes.

But from what pat was saying Circle for terrain manipulation. Circle can hit hard, but needs alot of other models to get that heavy hitting power. I'd say Cygnar, Circle, Cryx, or Legion that you need to look into from what pat said. Cryx has some really dirty tricks up their sleeves, Circle has movement manipulation, Cygnar can control the pace of the game through shooting, and Legion is a fast hard hitting glass cannon so if used right is unstoppable.

I know you where looking into Khador for a while there. Khador has the heaviest armor in the game at the cost of speed, but to say Khador is a slow faction would be an understatement at best. Plus they are pretty reliable on hitting hard.

Cryx, Legion of Everblight, and Trollbloods are the top armies. The competivness spread isn't as wide as it is in warhammer, but lets be honest here, if you're a competitive player, you want a competitive army.

I already had the Legion of Everblight Book and the Warmachine rule book, I added the legion of everblight faction deck and the Hordes rule book to my collection.

In other words CKO is coming to a Hordes/Warmachine table near you!
