Finishing Touches - 2000Pt List
« on: January 31, 2024, 08:03:41 AM »
Hey all,

While I donít yet have either the Rulebook or Forces of Fantasy book and Iím basing my understanding of things off YouTube, previous understanding of Editions and well - This forumÖ A good mate of mine is keen to get a game of TOW in within a couple of months.

Been doing some list building based around minis I have (Some of which still need building/assembling), and I always play in a more thematic, fluff-driven way anyway - So Iím not super worried about optimising. With that in mind, Iíve produced this effort at a 2000pt list:

===
Bogenaurís Glory (Small) [1944 pts]
Warhammer: The Old World, Empire of Man
===

++ Characters [586 pts] ++

Grand Master [260 pts]
- Hand weapon
- Full plate armour
- Shield
- Demigryph
- Dawnstone
- Sword of Striking
- Potion of Speed

Wizard Lord [165 pts]
- Hand weapon
- Level 4 Wizard
- On foot
- Earthing Rod
- Elementalism

Master Mage [60 pts]
- Hand weapon
- On foot
- Dark Magic

Captain of the Empire [101 pts]
- Hand weapon
- Full plate armour
- Battle Standard Bearer
- On foot
- Sword of Might
- Charmed Shield

++ Core Units [677 pts] ++

25 Veteran State Troops - Swordsmen [265 pts]
- Hand weapons
- Light armour
- Shields
- Drilled
- Sergeant (champion)
- Standard bearer
- War Banner
- Musician

15 Free Company [97 pts]
- Mixed weapons
- Militia leader (champion)

10 Missile State Troops - Crossbows (70 pts)
- Hand weapons
- Crossbows
- No armour

10 Missile State Troops - Crossbows (70 pts)
- Hand weapons
- Crossbows
- No armour

25 State Troops - Swordsmen [165 pts]
- Hand weapons
- Light armour
- Shields
- Sergeant (champion)
- Standard bearer
- Musician

++ Special Units [566 pts] ++

3 DemiGryph Knights [255 pts]
- Lances
- Full plate armour
- Demigryph Preceptor (champion)
- Sword of Striking
- Standard bearer
- Rampaging Standard
- Musician

Great Cannon [125 pts]

5 Inner Circle Knights [186 pts]
- Lance
- Hand weapon
- Shield
- Full plate armour
- Stubborn
- Inner Circle Preceptor (champion)
- Burning Blade
- Standard bearer
- Musician

++ Rare Units [125 pts] ++

Hellblaster Volley Gun [125 pts]

---

It comes up about 65Pts short, so Iím curious what everyone would do with them? To me, the obvious thing is buy 2 extra ICK - But Iím open to ideas here.

Also, like I say, not after making it hyper competitive - The core is based on what I have model-wise etc. But do let me know what changes youíd make to things like Magic Items? Etc

Nice to see so much engagement back in the forum recently and so many people returning after long absences.

I'd consider another wizard

I think you need something that can hunt warmachines or generally maneuver around your enemy as distractions.

So, I'd shelf the Crossbows and take Pistoliers/Outriders instead.

You could buy another captain and throw him in the other state troops to make them immune to panic.  A super champion.

I feel like magic items on your knight champions are unnecessary.
Free Company should be smaller or regiment should be bigger so that Free Company can be a detachment.

I hate people who don't paint their armies, hate them with all my guts. Beats me how they value other things over painting, like eating or brushing teeth.

Free company can operate independently since it doesn't use general's leadership, but needs ranks to do so.  It can work on it's own if you want.

I assume the two infantry blocks form the centre pf your line with the knights on either side.   This seems like a reasonable approach to me.   As I said I would have one wizard at either end of the line for magic protection so use the 65 points for another wizard.

Thanks all - All useful feedback.

I have a while to sort it out, I won't be playing TOW for a while, but fun to do a bit of thinking - And planning what I still need to paint for 2000pts fully painted.

I've got a few infantry to sort, the DemiGryphs to build and paint - With a converted Grand Master. Plus, I'll replace my old knights as I really cant stand the old Empire Knight models.

On the list, loads of good ideas - I might tinker as time goes on, but from the above I'll definitely strip the Magic Items from the unit champs (That was more just for fun, to use up some points anyway). I'll also take out a unit of Crossbows and use those extra points to buy 5 Outriders. I don't have the minis, but I'm enjoying the painting at the minute and I always liked the Outrider/Pistolier models - I'll see if I can get some on eBay or similar.
