Hey guys, been playing my Cryx vs my friends Legion a bit lately, and I've been having trouble beating his list so I humbly come before ya'll asking for advise.

At present he is running Thagrosh the Messiah, one Carniviean (sp?), and then spams shreaders to fill out the remaining points for our 25pt games.

I currently have at my disposal: Morty, pDenny, eDenny, Deathjack, 2 chicken jacks, one slayer, one seether, one magnatised reaper/slayer, one Leviathan, one Harrower, min bane knights, and tartarsauce.

My current caster of choice is Morty, so my lists are usually based around her boosting up a Harrower, DJ, a slayer, with a warwitch siren (using the pDenny model) to help with focus.

I also have on order two warwitch sirens (for Morty t2/3) and a couple of stalkers for the start of assasination runs (arcane assassin ftw).

Basically, I'm asking for help with my 'jack heavy list to take down Thagrosh.


Thanks for the help/insight guys

Hmm... well, going off the stats for the carni and shredders in the Quickstart PDF, I can see why that might be a problem. 9-10 little shredders running around, backed up by a big gribbly, and a tough caster who gives extra attacks to all of them. Plus, no souls for your guys to harvest...

On the other hand, the shredders seem like they would only take 1-2 good hits to actually take apart, so your best bet here might not be a few heavies, but a good infantry unit to take them apart, and you can get 2-3 infantry for each Shredder they bring. Scrap thralls could also be interesting, as the enemy doesn't have any ranged, apart from his carni. On that note, Bloat thralls and Bile thralls could also work, take them out from range, with cheap models.

Anyway, just some possibilities, I'll have a think about it :)

If you are running a Cryx army against hordes, especially Legion, then you need to get Venethrax for your caster. He pwns Legion with his abilities. Battlecollege flat out says use him against Legion

The Legion has a very high win ratio as the shredders themselves are somewhat overpowered, especially when used with Lylyth and her feat as they do incredible amounts of damage in a very short time. However, they are also the armies weakness because they do die easily and once you start taking away the Legion ability to aquire fury they fall quickly. Anything you have listed above will do just fine at this but charges by Tartarus and Banes will do the trick fairly well. And as PapaSmurf mentioned, Venethrax is a must against Hordes. With his abilities and spells, Venethrax is pure death to any Warbeasts he comes up against. With MAT 8 he will hit most things regularly, and his max ARM when he camps all his focus, and has Dragon Slayer running is a potential ARM 25! which makes him an incredibly hard to hurt for most armies.

Thanks for all the help guys, I'll see if I can get a game in with him this weekend, kinda difficult since his parents are out visiting.
As it stands, the "backup" army seems to be tearing through real well (Backup being a Trollbloods gunline with Gunnbjorn, a bomber, Impailer, bushwhackers, and a pyre troll)
