What i rhough:

SM had some really bad rolls (3/4 failed activations for thunderbolts)
The Collosus Robots where really good. They're like a predator formation with a hydra but more resilient.

Crusaders failed to do anything good.

Warhounds are still gosh darned awesome. I really think they should only be available in pacjs for 500p. It's also more close to the fluff. An army without 2 Warhounds if they can take them is hard to find.

Minoris coy are still very slow and hard to get into combat. I usually end up using them as a Blitz guard.


This was my first Battlereport this week. I choose a list that 1 AC asked to be tested. Tomorrow i will do another. If everybody does this we should be able to approve several lists in the next 3 months!! So come on and make an effort!

Thanks,

I have to say that warhound singles are all right but they do die pretty easily in my games.

For crusaders, think of them as screening units and in a pinch CC guys. They are pretty fast and they get that MW hit which helps against things like terminators. Just don't expect them to survive that long. Use them similar to how you would use sentinels.

For minorus, have you tried using the transport version? in my games they work fairly well to get sagitarii with rapiers to a good firing location if you don't garrison and the AA helps keep them protected. Shooty types are more challenging. You just have to find good firelanes where you can cover advancing formations or just accept they move slow and move your force at the minorus speed.
