I’m pulling together a 2k Northern Alliance list. Thoughts on the following? I have 65 points to play with right now.
Dwarf Clansmen Regiment
Ice Naiad Horde
Pack Hunters Troop (x2) (with javelins)
Pack Hunters Regiment (with javelins)
Snow Trolls Horde (x2) (one with Staying Stone, one with Hann’s Sanguinary Scripture)
Ice Queen w/ Heal and Alchemist’s Curse (2)
Thegn with Talanaar’s Standard and Boomstick
Lord on Frostfang (x2) with snow foxes
Snow Troll Prime
|Total Units:||12||Total Unit Strength:||20|
|Total Primary Core Points:||1935|
|Troops & Irregulars:||2|
|Infantry Hordes & Legions:||1|
|Large Infantry Hordes:||2|
The thinking is that the ice naiads plus dwarf clansmen supported by the Ice Queen (with AC2 and heal) form a good defensive block/tarpit that can engage and delay. Alchemist’s Curse gives them a fighting chance against high defense units, and heal plus regen should keep them in the fight.
The Snow trolls plus snow troll prime are the main hammer force, screened by the two troops of pack hunters (which can use terrain and act as shooty, stealthy chaff).
The lords on frostfang hunt for flanks opportunistically.
The remaining pack hunter regiment and thegn with standard and boomstick can support either group, depending on setup. They can provide a bit of plink damage or flyer defense.
Thoughts? What to do with the remaining points?
