Filling out my Armor Sections

Recommended Posts

I haven't played a game but I need an assist in filling out 2 armor sections.

 

I will be playing MAL

 

So far I have purchased -

 

Wyvern

Butcher

Sultan (fire support)

Kahn

2 chieftans

2 Despots

 

Any recomendations on what 4 models will round out 2 sections?

 

Thanks

You realize that you have enough models right now for 2 sections, correct? So your choices should be flexible enough to either incorportate into your existing sections or allow you to add a 3rd section to your army.

 

Personally, I think I'd buy a Wight, another Sultan and either two Dingos or two Gunships of any kind. This gives you a ton of flexibiltiy in the games you play.

 

2000 pt army (1932 actual - throw in some Upgrades)

Armor 1

Butcher

Kahn OEM

Sultan

Sultan

 

Armor 2*

Chieftain

Dingo

Dingo

*Or if you go ~100 Gunships instead of the Dingos, you have a flight and the Chieftains in either Armor 1 or a Specialist Section, plus enough points to swap a Sultan out for the Wight if you wanted.

 

3000 pt army (2926 actual)

Armor 1

Butcher

Wight

Wyvern

Armor 2

I can easily see another two or three ways to re-organize those models too, so you can have your choice of two full sections that will increase your firepower, or three minimum sections that give you an extra Init card. Taking those Gunships could allow you to have up to 4 Init cards.

This one isn't legal. An Armor section needs 3 CAV/vehicles with Attack model role, and the Khan is Recon and the Sultans are Fire Support.

 

If you have enough other sections you can make this one a specialist, or add another FS CAV and call it a FS section.

You shouldn't have to do anything to that illegal section other than change it's type to Specialist, should you? Then you'd have 1 Armor and 1 Specialist.

 

'Course I guess if he's specifically looking for Armor Sections than its a moot point. In that case change it to:

 

2000 pt army (1894 Actual - add Upgrades)

Armor 1

Butcher

Wight

Wyvern

Kahn OEM

 

Armor 2

Chieftain

Chieftain

Dingo

Heh, I made the same mistake you did Sarge, and saw 5 Models in there - Armor 1 is apparently a new Model no one else but the two of us have seen.

 

I think with treatment and medication we will stop seeing phantom CAV. :lol:

Come to think of it, I think there were 5 Models in that Section Sarge, and Chrome is just messing with us and used the Edit feature ::P:

 

Further proof of the Galaxy-wide conspiracy to oppress the Rach. <_<
