Its been only a day or two since I played my first game (the introductory kind, you know :p), so bear with me. Hell, I'm not sure if this is legal at all, I just did some research on Battle College, put together a list on Forward Kommander and here I am! :laugh:

We're going to have a big tournament in November here and I might just end up getting 35 pts of fanatical pyromaniacs. :)

So heres the list:

Harbinger of Menoth

Devout

Repenter

Repenter

Castigator

Crusader

Choir of Menoth (Leader and 5 Grunts)

Exemplar Errants (Leader and 9 Grunts)

Exemplar Errant Officer & Standard Bearer

Total: 35 pts

The idea is that the whole army advances forward and burn everything to cinders. The Castigator is followed by the Crusader and flanked by Repenters, while the Devout protects the Harbringer. I'm not sure about the fleshy bits of this list, but from the little I've gathered the choir sings buffs pretty well and the Errants can soak a lot of damage and even dish out some on their own.

Don't go easy on me. :)

The second choir is a good idea, this way I can buff a pair of jacks. I'm not sure if Harby needs a Wrack and that one point can be better spent elsewhere. I prefer to have a pair of Repenters, since they have a great ARM for a light jack and their flamethrowers are priceless, especially if properly combined with the Castigator, who couldn't care less if he got under their templates or not. But switching the Crusader to a Reckoner is a great idea, since it has reach, a yummy gun and most importantly a HUGE beatstick. I've no idea how could I ignore that. :)

So heres my revised list:

Harbinger of Menoth

Devout

Repenter

Repenter

Castigator

Reckoner

Choir of Menoth (Leader and 5 Grunts)

Choir of Menoth (Leader and 5 Grunts)

Exemplar Errants (Leader and 5 Grunts)

Total: 35

Goodie-goodie, I have a list then to work with! I'll just swap those two points as you suggested then I'm done! Oh and I checked again, the tournament is in October, not November. :laugh: I just hope I can get enough money to buy them all then paint them, though it should be piss easy after 40K. :p

From the looks of it, attending the tournament is impossible because I just can't get the models and then paint them in time. Regardless, I've been perfecting the design of this list and built this:

Harbinger of Menoth
Repenter
Repenter
Castigator
Reckoner
Hierophant
Choir of Menoth (Leader and 3 Grunts)
Exemplar Bastions (Leader and 4 Grunts)
Visgoth Juviah Rhoven & 2 Honor Guard

The jacks make use of the craploads of Focus the Harbringer has, while the infantry exploit her selflessness to stay alive and make others wish they died before battle, while the Hierophant keeps the girl from killing herself in a rather tragic-comic fashion. The jack synergy remains the same as before but having no experience with units I'm not sure what to expect from the Bastions and the Visgoth. On paper this looks nice but my gut feeling tells me that it needs more skill than I have at the moment... but that can be fixed. :)

Thats a nice eKreoss list, though I'd use Exemplars instead of Flameguards to fit his theme. And the buffs he throws around aren't bad either.

I don't plan on staying behind with Harby, I'll be rushing ahead like the fist of the north star and smash into my opponent's lines with the force of a thousand sons. :)

It's possible to do, just be careful with her, and camp a lot of focus - that's hard to do when you're running a bunch of Jacks, as there's always the temptation to boost another jack just a little more :p

I might recommend reading up on some tactics/tricks with her here, on Dicegods thread about winning the Australian Nationals. There is some really good advice in there, especially towards the end, where they go into detail about why certain choices work well with her. I found it most helpful myself :)
That guy is insanely good. Though using mercs is heresy. :p Just kidding, I'd do the same if I knew more about them but I still have to learn the basics. :p

I see his point about the Bastions, but I love the models and the concept so I'll try and stick to them for a while. Though utility units are my soft spot (I LOVE having a BIIIG toolbox =D), so I can already see myself getting into a dilemma later. :p
