Do you have any particular style of play [melee/ranged oriented, mixed/combined arms, offensive/defensive, etc.]. With not much time before GenCon, it's best to stay with a style your comfortable with. That being said, Koborlas can do any of them. Let us know and we can accomadate your style and what you have mini wise.

Just be aware of them getting swarmed when they go HtH.

Koborlas don't necessarily have to be swarmed. I've run a list very similar to the following with great success:

Koborlas - 998 points

Troop 1
Vasyl, Rageclaw Alpha w/Eye of the Ancestors, Ironhide
Corm, Ghostmane Shaman
Rageclaw Line Breaker
Rageclaw Warrior x 5
Warg x 4

Troop 2
Kainus, War Veteran w/Eye of the Ancestors
Rageclaw Line Breaker
Feral Hunter x 4
Warg x 3

That's 21 models, which isn't giving much at 1K unless you are facing a horde-style army. Pair the Wargs with the Hunters and Warriors, and Provoke keeps your big guys up and running longer. The longer they are around to use their multiple attacks, the more dangerous they are.

In playtesting I found the Pups and Wargs and warriors were the only way I could get near enough models to be competitive against swarms.

I use lists like this a lot.

Troop 1
Kashia, Ghostmane Mother
Ironhide x 2
Book of Tactics
Armor of Courage
Corm, Ghostmane Shaman
Rageclaw Warrior x 6
Warg x 3

Troop 2
Warg x 6

Troop 3
Istvan, Rageclaw
Warg x 2
Feral Pup x 4

Troop 4
Kosumi, Frostfang Huntress
Feral Pup x 4
Warg x 2

Koborlas - 999 points

Troop 1
Vasyl, Rageclaw Alpha
Ironhide
Frostfang Hunter x 2
Rageclaw Sentry

Troop 2
Takhi, Frostfang Shaman
Familiar
Warg x 2
Rageclaw Line Breaker x 2

Troop 3
Kainus, War Veteran
Ironhide
Rageclaw Warrior x 3
Rageclaw Sentry

Troop 4
Spirit Wolf

Troop 5
Luck Stone

One I tossed together. Takhi is there for the free move and dropping Ironhide on Vasyl. The Warg's are his bodyguards and the Linebreakers are there to shoot things that are coming his way.

Troop 1, 3 and 4 are pretty straight forward.

Overall a pretty good well balanced list. At first I questioned the wargs being in troop 2 instead of being included in one of the others, but then I started to see the trifecta of magic, ranged, and a rush attack finish which could work well if Tahki tosses the 3 snow balls.

One suggestion tho that I do have is that with the point sink that Vasyl is, I think I would probably lose the Spirit pup as much as I like it as a model. I would probably replace it with Luta. The idea here is that Luta fireball can help slow down enemies and allow you to focus on a few at a time keeping the advantage in your favor in physical combat. If you did that then you could either give Luta a familiar or add another Warg, more ironhide, book of tactics, etc..

Koborlas - 1000 points

Troop 1
Kainus, War Veteran - Ironhide
Ragon the Blooded x 2 - Ironhide x 2
Rageclaw Sentry x 2
Warg

Troop 2
Aislinn, Shadow Tracker
Ragon the Blooded x 2 - Ironhide x 2
Rageclaw Sentry x 2
Warg
-------------------------------------
2 troops +1 tactician +1 spy
12 models (40 DTs, 31 MAs)

This is list that is a huge hit or a huge miss depending on the enemy build. The biggest weakness is against magic. The biggest strength is a bunch of Tough/3 (tough/6 for the first rolls) along with a lot of hitting power behind them.

They have the speed to get into the enemy quick. Leap to target the more important targets first.

If the enemy has ranged, then try to use the Sentries high deflect to help get all models across the battlefield.

This list is entirely based around the Line Breakers hitting first, and then everything else cleaning up the pieces with 3 assassins and 3 first strikers.

With their high speed and DV, Linebreakers are more potent than people would think. With their large bases, they can auto-break contact with lesser sized models when they are in 1-1 situations. Or they can simply focus and shoot someone else while staying in btb using their unhindered. The whole, "I'll shoot yours if you shoot mine..." strategy. Just make sure to pack an armor of command so that you get the free action rally should you fail the shoot at your friend discipline check.

Good point about the armor of courage, hadn't thought of that. The previous list is also illegal; too many soldiers in Vasyl's troop.

Vasyl, Rageclaw Alpha w/ Ironhide, Armor of Courage
