Or should I say, the Cygnar list I always wanted to play. I want to thank the Podthralls for coming up with this idea and apologize for blatantly ripping it off. Since my main opponent, CptCalvinus, is a Cygnar player and four other people at my LGS play them as well, I thought I'd do my first envy post with Cygnar.
Basically, this is a Cygnar list that I would want to play some day. Being a Menoth player, you would think I woud have quite a disliking for Stryker but that isn't so. I really like his fluff in the storyline and his rules as a warcaster. Without further adieu....
Stryker 748/750 VPs: 25
Long Gunners full unit with UA
The basic strategy is having the two heavies up front with the Lancer and Stryker following, casting earthquake and other fun stuff. The Defender would be on one side of the heavies and the Long Gunners on the other. Have Stryker cast snipe on the Long Gunners for 7 first turn and then have the GMCA and Stormsmith go solo hunting. Strangeways will provide support to the heavies and might give the Defender that rare ability to make magic attacks with his gun. Really, I have no idea how this list would fair in competitive play but I picked models I really liked and that's all that matters.
One thing I noticed is the point cost and how much more Cygnar units cost than Menoth's. With Menoth, I can effectively put 2 Heavies and a light and then 2-3 more units fairly easily, rounded out with some solos. I couldn't bring myself to include the Black 13th, they're a bit too dirty when it comes to game play. I'll have to play this list one day when we CptCalvinus and I, decide to switch armies.
