Playing against a returning player

Recommended Posts

So I'm playing against a friend who is returning to the game.   I've got a decent basic perdita list for him to refresh with.  I used to consistently crush him so I want a real garbage list to play against him.  So my request to you- build me a garbage list that won't look like I'm trying to be garbage.  The best I've been able to come up with was Mcmourning will the starter box models and his box

I played against that list at Adepticon (we were playing for 1st place at the story encounter tournament), I wouldn't exactly call it garbage

Wow, I'm shocked.  Alright, that one is off the list.

Lucius
The Scribe
Dashel
2 Lawyers
3 Guild Guard
2 Wardens
2 Guild Hounds
+Some upgrades to taste

Excuse to try out double lawyers and potential to do stuff if all your gears line up, but nothing crushing or immediately threatening.

What models do you have?

Lucius/ Deep Pockets, Surprisingly Loyal, Condescending

Scribe

Ryle w/Numb to the World

Allison Dade w/Lead Lined Coat

Doppleganger w/Lead Lined Coat

Terracotta Warrior

Brutal Effigy

2 x Guild Guard

 

You could also swap Ryle out for a Peacekeeper and then drop the LLC on Doppleganger to get Numb to the World on the PK. 

There are some things in there that look good and you see in other lists but none of it synergizes real well with what Lucius brings since Ryle can’t be targeted by Commanding Presence, and he, Dade, and the Dopple can’t be used for issue command. 

However, with the Dopple and some of the tricks you do have it makes it look more serious.

That's too many good models in one list.  I'd win with that, no question.  Its fair to assume I have everything that isn't horse mounted in guild (or at least a decent proxy).

Well..... you asked for it to not be too obvious. 

Think Lucius or Hoffman is probably your best bet. But I think Lucius without any real good minions synergy is probably the best. 

Lucius, Effigy, 2 x Guild Guard, then the worst Enforcers you can take.....

Honestly, a Hoffman list without upgraded harness is probably decent provided you're lazy about how you drive it.  'Dita can shoot past the armor, and if you screw up your power loops, the constructs are pretty easy to hit.

I'm garbage with Hoff anyways so that's something that might work too.
