Gaan-Hor Warriors are usually limited to 6 models or one troop in tournaments.
Recommending factions to some players that are just getting introduced to the game and trying to suggest them some fun armies. What do you guys think about the following army?
Broodmaster, Dragon Rider
Gaan-Hor Warrior x 9
Gam-Nan, Gaan-Hor Elder
Gaan-Hor Warrior x 6
Crymorian Warrior x 6
Seems like it would be a great all flying army - it could take most by surprise and with the Gaan-Hor warriors you'd use broodmaster/crymorian warriors to take out any spell casters / ranged models / first strike models. Once you've accomplished that it seems like the game would be yours for the taking. It seems like the only troubles it would have would be against heavy caster armies, but even then you've got some serious move range before they can take you out of flight. Thougths?
You could replace the first 9 Gaan-Hor with Brood of Payanak solders. They aren't flyers on their stat card, but the warlord ability can give them the flight SA for 2 rounds.
Also the Brood Master isn't released yet, so if they're new players you may want to lean him towards Khong-To and a ground based troop.
You also may want to lead them away from an all flying army, since for the most part flyers are a bit harder to take advantage of than other models.
