So I have a Dilemma. When I thought about my trip, I knew I had three days of gaming. I know usually they shoot one game a day. With this in mind I thought one army per day would be good enough. Everything was fine and dandy until I did the impossible. I finished painting my genestealer cult.
I thought the armies I would take on my trip would be: Tyranids, Ad Mech, and Necrons. I figured I had 40 genestealer cultists to paint in two months. With work and school taking a bunch of my free time I never thought it was possible. Well it was possible and now I don’t know what to take. Here is how I see it.
This one is a shoe in for going. It is by far my favorite army. I don’t use a bunch of flying tyrants so it is a bit underpowered in most player’s position. They tend to do well in my current meta but we know that means nothing. If anything, I have to decide which exocrines to take. Out of the three I own, I plan on fielding at least two. Do I take the old school one or do I take the kitbashed one?
I don’t get to play these guys very often. I generally don’t do the Decurion because of the cheesey reputation. I run a combined arms detachment with the start collecting formation and a Canoptek Harvest formation.
I love the look of these guys and I think they are a strong army. I should not get rolled over and should make a decent opponent. On the other side, I am told they are a boring army to watch. They just don’t die. This could be annoying and make a bad video.
I love the look of my add mech. I am still trying to figure out how to play them. I don’t have all the models for the war convocation but I could bring 1850 to 2k army with my Forgeworld knight for a larger game.
This army has the potential to dominate the field but usually they collapse pretty quickly. I would love to bring them and try out Cawl. I have yet to play him. My fear playing this army is that I will fail hard and the game will not be very fun to watch.
I love my orks. They are fun but not very competitive. The main problem is I don’t have all of my models painted. I would have to play with a subpar list with what I have painted. While not the end of the world I would have the chance to Waaagh for the internets.
They are ultimate glass hammer. If the moons align I will get to go first with a lot of assaults. If not, then it will be an uphill battle. Having rushed to have them all painted in time, I can’t leave them behind. I don’t know if my opponent will ask what I am playing before choosing their army but I am afraid of the flamer heavy army. I know one thing, with the cult there is a possibility of a quick game for either side.
So, there are all of my choices. I am 90% certain that I will be bringing my tyranids and genestealer cult. This leaves at least one slot open at most two. So the question is: Do I bring my mob of orks, my “boring” necrons, or my untested ad mech?
If you read this blog, please leave a comment. This is the one time I definitely need some input. I have one gameday before I leave and I want to bring my armies to get a practice game with each before heading out.
Help me out!
