With the mass update of the Data Cards to 1.2, we've decided to prune out old tactics discussions as they may be confusing the newer players.

With the change to Finari's abilities , I think I may use her now instead of just being a pretty model ! ::o:

Cool! Hey, Gus, you missed one ::D: . I was wondering what changes to her abilities you were referring to, Brushmaster. I see that she lost Breaker but gained Deflect. I agree: this change, plus her cheaper cost makes her more appealing to use. She may become a standard addition to any of my troops that are composed primarily of Justicars.

BTW, thanks for your work listing all of the updates in the other thread, Gus.

I didn't miss it. Finari has changed 3 times since yesterday morning. :angry:
I guess now she is back to having Deflect instead of Breaker...

I am just about fed up with all the changes since yesterday. It is really forcing me to duplicate a ton of work. :angry:

BUT We all apreciate it Gus.



I love the Finari model, and now I can use her on the field, instead of just D&D

Well she dropped 6 points and traded breaker for deflect so now she has a bit more protection and is a better buy.

Valandil also dropped 4 points to 69 and with the Tactician SA , he's a real buy if you don't load him up tooo much ! ::D:

Once again I'll advocate Scare spells if you're looking for a cheap and effective spells that will help your grunts out quite a bit when they try to lay the smach down on the enemy. Valandil + 3 Scare and 2 Ice Shards would come in at a very reasonable 119 points. Still, as Mages go, I'd much prefer he didn't have Tactician, and was down around the 40-45 point mark...just look at Arik and Lysette with their lovely CP 7 and their 44-45 point cost...sweet!

Depends on what you've already taken... you might be able to trade down one model to something that costs less, and add an extra model. Or, you might be able to do a minor model swap somewhere that goes down just a couple of points, leaving your 15 or 16 points to add a piece of equipment. Or you could use 10 of the points to take a bandage on one of your clerics, and be 4 points under.

Or...

Or...

Or.

It'll really be helpful to see what you've already chosen with the 986 points you've already spent, as well as any restrictions you might have (i.e. you only have certain models available, don't own the Crusader Faction book, running a Judgement sublist, etc.). We can make much better recommedations if you post the army list you are considering.

If you havn't taken Divine favor work that into your list for 10 points.

In addition Standards cost 10 points and are invaluable for Default Crusaders lists that are using Mercy.

Otherwise dropping an Ironspine to a Skirmisher gives you a point, or dropping a Knight to an Unforgiven gives you 2 points.

That gives you 15-16 points and 15 points buys you alot of different things.

What miniatures are available for use in the Army of Justice and Crusader lists from the Faction book?

I plan on starting both a Crypt Legion Army and a Crusader army, but don't want to buy any Crusader models I wont be able to use.

Legion minis I'm buying are
Deluxe Starter set
Necropolis Stater box
Crypt Legion Starter box
2 blisters Skeletal Archers
Railor
Lord Kentaur
Grave Horror or Bone Horror (haven't decided yet)

So, I'd appeciate either a list of minis from the armies or, a list of minis I should pick up.

Thanks

If you're planning on playing a sublist from one of the Faction books, it might not be a bad idea to pick it up for yourself. Not only will you get the list, but also the related SA's and the Crusader only spells and equipment.
