I am attending the Crossroads GT in upstate New York in September. Here is the linkto the semi-ETC restrictions, note that special characters are allowed case by case (mine has been approved). I am currently considering using a Bugman's rangers list, primarily due to the nature of the restrictions on other armies and the scenarioswhich will be played. Here is my list:
Runelord: Rune of Spellbreaking x2, Anvil of Doom, Great Weapon = 371
Thane: BSB, MR of Gromril, MR of Challenge, Rune of Brotherhood, Great Weapon = 169
Joseph Bugman = 155
28 Longbeard Rangers (Bugmans): FCG, Great Weapons, Rune of Determination = 437
30 Longbeard Rangers: Mus, Std, Great Weapons = 435
Grudge Thrower: 2x Rune of Penetration, Rune of Accuracy, Engineer = 170
Cannon: Rune of Forging, Rune of Burning, Engineer = 145
30 Miners: FCG, Steam Drill = 380
10 Miners: Mus = 115
Organ Gun = 120
My reasoning is that the scenarios contain a number of objectives, and with the ETC style restrictions, the gunline is not viable, while the singles aspect means that I need to win big every game. The anvil is fairly standard for a rangers list, and the organ gun is there to protect the warmachines. And I always have the option of deploying gunline style as well if necessary. The key power of the list is the single deployment drop (warmachines) and the ability to react to however my enemy deploys. Thoughts?
EDIT: Revised it to be the current list.
