Smallest Warlord Army?

Recommended Posts

Well only a few weeks to ReaperCon and I haven't even bought models or even learned how to play the game yet. So what are the smallest armies out there? Only ones below 10 models so I can finish them in time for the Con. Thanks in advance for amy replies. I'm not picky on which fraction either.

There are several threads that discuss minimalist builds. Here's my post with more links in one such thread.

 

It's rather easy to get down to 8 models in several factions. Basically, there are 4 keys to getting a small build:

1) Expensive Leader (preferrably with 3 elite slots)

2) Expensive Elites (100+ points)

3) Expensive Soldiers (70+ points)

4) Expensive Solo

 

You can build a pretty small army from most factions following those guidelines.

Warwick, good Necro list, but I admit I would swap out the horsies and go with something like:

 

Necropolis - 996 points

 

Troop 1

Judas Bloodspire, Anointed of Hars

Sir Dauron, Death Knight - Vampiric Weapon

Sir Osric, Crimson Knight

Naomi, Mistress of Wings

Crimson Knight x 6

Crypt Bat x 3

 

Equip

Luck Stone

-----------------------------

1 troop +1 tactician +2 spies

13 models (43 DTs)

 

With Osric's ability to Parry up to DV15, and Naomi's ability to Mindblast and firestorm, they just do a little more for me than the speed of Vandrian. So, I tossed in 3 vampiric bats to use for that speed hit instead.

 

13 is still small right?

It's one over the 10 model limit, but should still work.

 

Darkspawn: Pain Doctrine

 

Troop 1:

Witch Queen (Crescent of Bile, Familiar)

D'Khul Bathalian

Mastema

Mastema

Bathalian Exarch (3)

 

Troop 2:

Rauthuros

 

Troop 3:

Isiri Arachnid Archer (3)

 

Luckstone

 

Witch Queen can use Spectral Minions to quickly bring out some fodder if necessary. Using Mastema w/ Regeneration and Familiar to help fuel with Cruel Casting to fuel the Pain Cage if spell points start running low.

 

Isiri Archers to function as fast moving quick strike to harass the flanks, and provide ranged threat.

 

Plenty of melee punch between Rauthuros, Mastema and the Exarch. Exarch will also function to keep enemies off the casters.

 

3 Troops, 4 cards, 11 Models, 39 Damage tracks, 996 points.

 

Contemplated getting the Albatross Amulet to add Book of Tactics to the Witch Queen, but I don't want to give anyone a reroll. I'd rather eat the 4 points.

Argyrian can only field 2 Elites, and Caerwynn is a Unique Elite, you can only field one of her. You'd need to find someone to suck up all those points.

Ellithin should help with that. And then a couple expensive soldiers.
