Hi all as post title i'm going up against cryx soon not sure wot he'll bring or wots in his collection, so just cryx in general!!!
I've got the battle box and some widowmakers and a manhunter but then i'm stuck as to wot i should add.
I've had luck using a berseker (marshalled) and kovnik against cygnar where disruption never bothered the berserker due to no focus :P
But i fancy trying my MOW and greylords.
Which option should i go, not to bothered bout being uber competitive just dont want to wupped :lol:
I take it you'll be using Sorsha then? Good choice, I hate her almost as much as my flatmate (who plays Khador) hates Denny! What Cryx will have over you above all is speed and nodes, fortunately Sorsha is more than apt at dealing with those problems with her feat and all manner of irritating spells!
I'd take both jacks, with sorsha hold ing thing up with her feat these guys can do serious damage by tampling all over the now DEF 5 infantry and take out heavier targets the good old fashioned way.
Widowmakers are a big yes, all the time, no questions asked. Standing still they can hit most bonejacks on a 6 and you really want rid of those arc nodes!
MOW's are really, really cool but unfortunately their speed is their downfall. If your mate uses Denny then Crippling Grasp can pretty much take them out the game by putting them down to a paltry MA:2 and he'll be able to work around that quite easily. However, they are pretty solid and if you get yourself some Greylords to stick some blizzards on them then not only will you get a better DEF vs shooting (making bloat thralls need 10's to hit you instead of 8's, which is HUGE) but you can really mess up any long range charges he might throw at them due to the -2MA as soon as he hits the AOE, which means your MOW's can mosey on over and clobber them good and proper on your next turn. Your MOWs will still probably get beaten down if there's lots of mechs or banes kicking about but that's why you take........
Mortars! Two mortars plus the bombard on the destroyer will be fling 3 AOE's into the zombie ranks per turn and most cryx have not-so-good armour, so even on the scatter you should usually take out some.
If your mate's using Bane Knights though they'll be pretty safe against both these tactics due to reach and high ARM but that's why you get sorsha to freeze them. Beware the Bane Knights! They're brilliant.
Hope that helps some, although there's a lot better players out there than me.
Greylords to slow down and threaten his pistol wraiths. and help funnel cryx troops to where your mortars can have a party time.
Mortars and greylords are always a good combo
If you have got widowmakers I would use them to hamstring arcnodes on nightwretches etc after that taking out weapons.
Do nnot deploy them too far forward Cryx are just too darn fast.
Pikemen always get my vote + command. and have just about the next best armour to Man o Wars. Assault Kommandoes could work well and get off two shots.
Man o Wars are too slow and vunerable to charges from bane knights + thralls etc.
Will you be playing a scenario or justa straight bash.
If a straight bash I would go with an emptty flank down one side of the table.
I would expect any pistol wraiths to go hunting command as well.
Well this is my 1st battle report against a foe other than my little brother ;
Khador (me) vs. Cryx
Sorcha – Destroyer
Kovnik – Berserker
Terminus – Helldiver
Mc Thralls + Brute
Slaver & Drudges
The destroyer took out the helldiver, he also helped totally remove the drudges with the help of the Manhunter and damaged the Bloat thrall and terminus.
Widowmakers took out the Pistol wraith Brute thrall and some Mcthralls
MOW killed a couple of Mcthralls but acted as a nice speed bump.
Kovnik took out couple of bane knights
Greylords took out 2 bile thralls!
The berserker although only killed a couple of Mcthralls he did wrap them and knights for a very long time
My opponent wiped out everything except sorcha and destroyer!!!
But as last ditch thing attacked terminus with destroyer and sorcha. Destroyer did abit of damaged thanks to 3 focus!
Then Sorcha missed 1st time despite boosting then another attack managed a critical freeze (boosted got 3 6’s), survived his next turn just (sorcha only had 4 boxes left) and finished of terminus!!!!
Enjoyed the game although I didn’t have much left, realised wot I’ve been missing just collecting/modelling/painting without playing! :D
