Besteger Posted November 21, 2012 Share Posted November 21, 2012 While I'm not new to wargaming as a whole, I'd like to start with an army that excels at my preferred strategy, while I'm getting my footing. Nowhere have I been able to find a simple pro & con breakdown of each army. Rather than a dozen replies about how any army is flexible enough to accommodate any play style, I'd like to see what folks see as the core strength and weakness of each faction. Examples would be something like, "Elves strive for magical superiority, but they tend to get squished in hand to hand” or “Necropolis favors the Mongolian Hordes Technique – throw enough bodies at the enemy, and you can wear him down, eventually” Which one is "The Mario" – no true advantages of faults, for whom flexibility brings success? Which army most favors long-range shooters? Heavy infantry? Flight or Burrow-based avoidance of the battlefield? Which army can best deliver an overwhelming cavalry charge? Best stand firm when charged, etc. To which pitfalls and classic oversights does this army lend itself? Finally, which faction would you recommend for a newbie, and why? If you could advise against a given faction, which one, and why? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
