    Hey /tg/ so I'm thinking about switching around my list with the release of 5th; let me know what you think:
    Telvanni Lord
    -level 4 wizard
    -potion of levitation
    -Staff of Magnus
    -Drake's Pride robe
    300 pts

    Bound Dremora
    -Daedric Dai-Katana
    -Amulet of Blades
    250 pts

    Telvanni Coven x 3
    -lvl 2 Wizard
    -Summoned Daedroth
    130 pts

    Telvanni Coven x 3
    -lvl 2 Wizard
    -Summoned Daedroth
    130 pts

    Argonian slaves x 15
    110 pts

    Khajiit slaves x 10
    -Poisoned weapons (5+)
    -Eye of Night
    120 pts

    Bound Ogrin
    -Thick Fat
    -Daedric club
    -140 pts

    Winged Twilight

    Winged Twilight

    so it comes to 1480 points and I'm not sure what other upgrades I can give to my wizards; and I know slaves are usually frowned upon, but my local meta focuses on Imperials, so Ineed to be able to field bodies. I'm not into cheese, so I won't field the Neravarine or any Tribunal.

    How do you think this list could do overall though, any other hints or tips for an aspiring Scrollhammer player?

    This is a slave-heavy list.
    Use fewer, more elite units. If you have access to atronachs, use them. You are already using Bound Dremora, use more conjured and Bound beings.
    Don't be that guy fielding 25+ slaves on the field and taking 5 minutes per turn while figuring out each one's actions.

    If you can afford it: get Choosen of Azura. It is the most broken Dunmer unit you can field.

    tell me now, why are you fielding the slaves in one block of ten rather then two blocks of five? if you're going to make a meatsheild, make it worth it.

    Or go for pure cheese and field Hungers.

    I would slap your shit if you were playing with me.
    I'll play with guys who use transmutation heavy lists. It is always a interesting game.
    But restoration heavy? That means you just announce "oh his wounds are healed and his fatigue is gone" forever. I hate playing that kind of attrition game to burn out restoration mages' magicka so I can actually kill them.
    Fuck it. My Redgaurd/Nord/Sign of the Shadow Argonian list would bumrush and rape your mage heavy list anyways. And then the Dark Brotherhood argonian's would break stealth behind your slave groups.

    Holy shit, learn to optimize. And this is coming from a Redguard-heavy player. Your leader needs to be pure magicka, no exceptions. With his Jump 100, feather 3 seconds spells he hops around the table as he pleases. Anyone gets close, they get fried with silly overpowered Destruction magicka spells making use of his 3X normal magicka pool.

    So ronery.

    Not that I can blame people for not fancying them much. Being restricted to unmounted heavy armor melee units and HERKA DERKA IMMA BERSERKA style gameplay is a bit boring at times. But I just love the look on people's faces when on the second turn I pop skooma and sujamma on every unit, order a bunnyhop charge, and reach their end of the table for a +70 strength power attack. I once even managed to almost beat a Nerevarine list with it when my opponent got arrogant enough to not levitate, and I got him locked in a constant knockback loop. But then he used that faggy Dragon Break and reset the table...

    Actually from what I've gathered from insider sources they're coming out with a brand new Legion to commemorate their newest TES game. Something about the lost 12th Legion. Guess what ability they all have (aside from shield wall). You guessed it. Infiltrate. Anywhere on the board. They've all got magical gear too. 2+/2+ saves and +5 weapons across the board.

    You think its bad now. I don't think I'll buy that codex though. I like the feel of my normal Legions. Feels good to stomp all over that pompous Elven ass.

    And the Nord/Redguard list I'm working on would out-melee you anyways. Let's see that shield wall hold when adrenaline rushing redguards with a temporary bound blade enchantment crash into it.
    After it is broken the Nord axemen pour through the gap. I'm thinking an Orc adventurer with a mundane ring and daedric hammer a a leader. You won't out melee my list. I guarantee it.

    As a fellow Imperial player I admit his list is bad. Spearmen Axillia are the cheap chaff of the Legion. Use them to counter spearmen and hold off other chaff but if you want kills and victory you gotta get some Imperial Legionnaires. They're 80 points for 10, but you get a 3+ save, Shield Wall, Fearless Under the Standard, and Combat Tactics (fuck your exhaustion). Shit, Legionnaires even have better weapons. They've got a powerful armor piercing ranged attack AND 2 attacks in melee on top of the 4++ from the tower shield.

    I go with 10 units of Legionnaires. Just roll up the field with them.

    I heard they might errata a random behavior table for Sheogorath. A really, really crippling one, too. That would be a tragedy of a game.

    Oh, and also, what do you think about the Sheogorath rule on Daedric Prince summoning? You roll a weather check before summoning, and if it just so happens that it's storming, instead of the prince you want you get Sheogorath. Shit's potentially patently hilarious, especially if they make him wig out every turn on a roll of 6. Even worse if the other player can land a drain willpower on him.

    I use Bound daedra. There is no 'summoning' them. They are treated as regular units.
    I'll give it to you that draining conjuration is a great tactic. Fucked me over on more than one occasion.
    But then I switched to Bound units and never looked back.

    any nord player with half a brain brings necromancers to fights (which means drain attributes, paralyze, and summoning) not to mention how undercosted the beserkers are. most players go for dragonslayers because they have better raw stats, but when the zerkers cost only 10 less each with equivalent gear/skills, there really isn't any reason to not throw six or seven of them at each target and tell them to mash their axe/mace into them.

    Try orc+necro mages. It is better supported in fluff (necromancers love orc corpses and do whatever it takes for the orc king to tolerate their presence in orc lands).

    It shuts people up when they have to fight daedroths, dremora lords, AND Altmer mages all at once.
    Guess what is worse than entering into melee with some daedroths? Entering into melee with chameleoned daedroths because Altmer are good at Illusion. And all other spell skills.

    yeah that one plays the smoothest

    DB sharpshooters during day/outdoors, berne nightblades on anything wearing armor better than chitin. it's funny to watch a her hand's ordinator get shot with a paralyze arrow, then have three assassins jump him next turn and do almost 1k damage total then slink back behind their own lines.

    imperial legion wrecks it hard though (which is why it didn't win). also it has a hard time with daedra, and anything like that Orc necromancer list floating around stomps a mudhole in it and walks it dry. it CANNOT play the long game, but over half the time it doesn't because DB's swift strike -> converge -> swift strike = 1k damage on any target post-armor/resistances.

    Seriously, unless your playing a 5000+ point game, you'll never get a chance to use such a thing. And even then, with that many points on the field and the fact that HELIOS takes 3 turns to recharge, you best hope your opponent has VERY few beefy units making up their entire list, or you'd get raped by any swarm army like raiders or deathclaws.

    Damn, that version was as delicious as it was broken. I mean, roll 1d6 on every turn spent crossing difficult terrain to see if you get sucked into Oblivion and get removed from the game? What the shit, bro.

    Yet still, it was so very, very flavourful. And even today, a Breton list could be very powerful. Especially since 4e changed magic resistance to cover elemental damage too. Practically makes any High Rock list a potential nightmare for any and all magic cheese lists. Not to even mention mark of the atronach breton sorcerers.

    That's the problem, really. Hircine's Aspect is declared at the start of the match, not in the army list, so you can just basically tailor-suit him to any situation. Only real defense is to hope you can fake the Weres player out as to how you're set up, which can be hard with some armies.

    The way I see it, Hircine was supposed to be your lord choice, and then it makes sense (although he kind of sucks compared to other lords kited out to cost the same). But for some reason you can take him as a regular daedric option, as if he were some kind of a huge scamp. Then, when you effectively have TWO lords for the price of one and a half, things get stupid.

    (Oh, an by the way? When they slashed the nords and made them even weaker in 4th, they upgraded the argonians. And introduced Hist. Get a Mechanized Hist and eat bullshit bonuses to all my argonians. This rape train has no breaks.)

    Did you just draw troop choices from a hat? Switch out that nerevarine for a Hist and shit gets crazy fast. Sap Bonus effect buffs all your argonians, and sithis-shadowscale bonuses are added to shadow birthsigned troops.

    And don't even get me started on how OP it is if you mix in the Dark brotherhood.

    Hey, what ever happened to the Dwemer armies? Way back before even 1E they were pretty popular, but these days you'll be lucky to even find someone to admit they existed. It is like the blanked from existance, they were wiped so clean. All you see now is those fucking "war machines" and centurians.

    I fucking liked the dwemer, so what if their atheistic "SCIENCE!" didn't fit the fluff of the game.

    It depends on which faction you like the best. Here's a decent Dwemer one, all you need to do is buy the battleforce twice and buy 2 lords. It stands up well against most armies

    Yagrum Bagarn
    -Level 4 Dwemer
    -Mechanized body
    -Corprus Disease

    Radac Stungnthumz
    -Level 3 Dwemer Spirit

    Steam Centurion x6

    Centurion Sphere x20

    Fast Attack:

    I went with a Temple army and before you start bitching: no I do not field any Tribunal gods. Even I agree that they're full retard, especially when you can put Her Hands next to Almalexia with Hopesfire. Instead I went for an Ordinator-heavy army:

    Elam Andas
    - Spell Breaker
    - Ebony mace
    - Rally

    Fedris Hler
    - Barilzar's Mazed Band
    - Dwemer Jinkblade
    - Stealth

    High Ordinators x5
    - Ebony scimitars
    - Lady's Grace (+2 saves, fuck yeah)

    Buoyant Armigers x5
    - Glass Armour
    - Stealth
    - Rock of Llothis

    Ordinators x10
    - Ebony maces
    - Vivec's Fury

    Ordinators x10
    - Ebony spears
    - Vivec's Fury

    Priest of Sotha Sil
    - Summon Greater Bonewalker
    - Firestorm
    - Veloth's Indwelling

    Priest of Almalexia
    - Summon Greater Bonewalker
    - Restore health

    Dude, Boone is a 1st Recon Hero. That just makes for a hideously terrifying characters that hits on like, every roll and has a incredibly high chance of getting a Critical Hit roll.

    I fielded him just once and he proceeded to pick off an entire Legion raiding party. The Legionary player raged after that though, so we didn't finish it.

    I played a guy running the blighted cliff racer list before. Pissed me off royally. So I went home and put this together.

    Kwama Queen - egg nest, hive instinct, blighted - 100

    Royal Guard - Kwama warrior x 6 - blighted, sharpend claws, toughened armor - 180

    Kwama warrior x 8 - blighted - 100
    Kwama warrior x 8 - blighted - 100

    Kwama worker x 10 - blighted - 50
    kwama worker x 10 - blighted - 50
    Kwama worker x 30 - blighted - 50
    Kwama worker x 30 - blighted - 150

    Kwama forager x 20 - blighted - 40
    Kwama forager x 20 - blighted - 40
    Kwama forager x 20 - blighted - 40
    Kwama forager x 20 - blighted - 40
    Kwama forager x 20 - blighted - 40
    Kwama forager x 20 - blighted - 40

    Scrib x 60 - blighted, paralyze touch - 60
    Scrib x 60 - blighted, paralyze touch - 60
    Scrib x 60 - blighted, paralyze touch - 60
    Scrib x 60 - blighted, paralyze touch - 60
    Scrib x 60 - blighted, paralyze touch - 60
    Scrib x 60 - blighted, paralyze touch - 60

    1380 points total, 567 models total. I WILL DROWN YOU IN SCRIB JELLY. Also with the egg nest upgrade, I can spawn more scribs, who get blighted and paralyze for free because the queen's blighted. Depending on rolls I can get about 15 or so a turn, double that if I get lucky rolls. Fuck the cliffracers.

    Yeah, most people who go for the gods don't have enough points left over to get anything else but fanatics or Aslander mercenaries as their core options. Makes for pretty boring games I think. Some of them even disregard blessings even though they're cheap as hell.

    The main problem with my list is the low number of models. They're excellent against mage-heavy armies thanks to Spell Breaker, Hler's teleport ability and the Buoyant Armigers, but swarm armies or trolololo worthy Imperial armies with 80+ models still wreck my shit. The Bonewalkers slow them down and firestorms do decent damage, but it's usually not enough and once my priests die I have pretty much lost the game.

    I have the hive instinct upgrade, I can make my paralyzing scribs move double in a single turn. I might lose half my army in turn one, but turn two the tide of chitan will be upon you, and good luck AoEing while you're taking thirty plus hits.
    >> wallamazoo !r3NZBcC2gA 01/28/11(Fri)11:58 No.13690684
    This list is pretty straight forward, but it might get boring after a while since you will be mostly locked in close combat the entire game. What really matters most is who gets first hit, and the roll of your die. BUT blighted is pretty important for the overall penalties it will cause in your opponent by turn 4, 5, and 6. I hate it when I play against a blighted player, and by the end of the game all my units who were locked in close combat have -2 strength and initiative.

    Anyone think that Bethesda will include silt striders as mounted units for the Dunmer Houses in the next edition? They are desperately lacking in heavy mounted choices, and with the silt striders they'll have an excellent heavy platform for archers and mages. Or maybe they could be a special choice for Dres since their army kind of lacks flavor apart from slave hunters and heroes/elites with vampiric traits.
    >> wallamazoo !r3NZBcC2gA 01/28/11(Fri)12:12 No.13690783
    They're not taken as mounts, but rather as heavily armored transports. To take a Silt Strider for a single model would be kind of pointless, since they have a capacity of 10, or 20 if you take the "Hollowed Shell" option. It was in the Faction Approved 2004 manual. It is still supported in the current edition, just not for tournaments.
    >> Anonymous 01/28/11(Fri)12:23 No.13690868
    Ah, right. I was kind of thinking of loading up a bunch of slave hunters on silt striders and using it against my friend's Black Marsh army, but unless they can shoot out of the silt strider I guess it's kind of pointless.

    personally i roll with generic high priests because they keep pesky assassins out.

    also buoyant armigers are the most underrated unit in the whole freakin' game. they are only going to get better when dual wielding is implemented next codex update.

    >uses mages guild

    The Mage's guild is terrible man. Sure, the magic is useful, but all the lords are awful. Their most expensive two, Trebonius and Traven are practicly unusable, despite high point value!

    Sure, trebonius is powerful, and comes with free artifacts included, but fielding him actually HURTS the abilities of all other mages you field. Nothing is worth that.
    Traven is even worse, If you field him he cripples your unit selection. Every unit has to be specialized, and NO NECROMANCERS. What the hell?

    They're just not that great. Any lord/hero units you have will be shittastic. Nels Llendo gets fucked if anyone fields a female unit, at all. Then you have what. . . the three naked nords and faceless bandit mobs. Wee. If you want to do bandits, you'd be better off going with a themed Camonna Tong or Thieves Guild list.

    Honest to god I remember a variant list called "the charmed and the dominated". It was led by a level 4 wizard who couldn't cast anything but cheap level one spells because he had his mana tied up in dominating the rest of his army. Which was a hodgepodge of bandits, ashland tribesman and imperials. I think the only other casters you could field were level 1 hedge wizards, with no options. But in return, you could put millitamen in medium armor in with your bandits, to at least give them a fighting chance against anything with long blades or polearms.
