[AL] Cathay
« on: March 31, 2018, 03:37:41 PM »
Will be playtesting Cathay in the coming weeks.  Have already played 6 games with the 2009 list.  Initial thoughts:

1) Firelances definitely need more playtesting.
2) Artillery could be a little more imaginative?
3) Spells are a bit limp and the Wizard (ie. the Dragon) is ferociously expensive.

We're going to run them against a variety of armies.  Interested to hear others' experiences if they have any.

I am admired by your miniatures produced, my sincere compliments.

We had already analyzed army list cathay and tested in a couple of fights, I had already thought about some changes to the army list.

Surely I agree with your assertions made about the cathay army list

We had modified the cavalry "Dragon cavalry" by equipping it with Firelance, in the first round of combat in melee applies an armor reduction to a-1 (armor +4 becomes +5) no change to the profile that remained 3/3/5 min / max - / 2 at a cost of 110 pts

We also thought to introduce "Foo statues" units monster three stand 3/3/4 at a cost of 125 pts min / max - / 1 immune a terror

Also, it was thought to introduce Wu jen Ld 7 wizard, with two sphere of spells
Yan and Ying to use alternately

We have also tested units "Bastion Chariots" chariots rules 4/4/5 but with base size 40mmX40mm 140pts, but we have seen that they do not work undergo so much because of the width of the base (taken from the ancient Warmaster)

We had also introduced "terracotta warrior" and "Dragon Monk" units
I hope he can serve you for some suggestions, We have given up army list cathay, we await yours. Thank you so much. Leonida

Inspired by the Cathay army of Warhammer. Good starting point for other Army lists: Estalia, etc.
