k, little change in plans, played some more games, focussed on three units and filled the rest of the list with "support"

 

My concept list for ETC warm-up:

  • Dragon Seeker, Great Weapon, Monster Seeker, Paired Weapons, Rune of Fury, Rune of Might, Rune of Precision
  • King, General, Shield, Shield Bearers, Aether Loathestone, Rune of Destruction, 2x Rune of Might
  • Thane, Shield, BSB, Rune of Dragon's Breath, Rune of Iron, Rune of Smashing
  • 28 Clan Warriors, Shields, Full Command, Runic Standard of Swiftness.
  • 10 Clan Warriors, Vanguard, Shield
  • 15 Clan Marksmen, Guild-Crafted Handguns, Musician, Shields
  • 10 Miners, Pistols, Musician
  • 10 Miners, Pistols, Musician
  • 10 Seekers, Champion, Skirmish, Vanguard
  • 22 Seekers, Vanguard
  • Vengeance Seeker
  • Vengeance Seeker
  • Steam Copters
  • Organ Gun, Rune Crafted

The idea is King and Thane join shield warriors, so much punching power in staying power, with vanguardDragon Seekers goes in skirmishing Seekers, also vanguard. Then 22 Seekers as a third combat block, also vanguard. Then two ambushing miners for scoring and mobile threat. 2 Vengeance Seekers, copter and 10 shield vanguard warriors as redirectors / chaff. Guild crafted gunners and OG as rear guard, back-up fire.

I think I like how this will play, and its rather cost efficient.

 

Thought?

I am not familiar with 9th but the fundamentals seem much the same ... personally i would see those clansmen that arent crossbowdwarfs a.k.a quarellers as potentially wasted crossbow bolts. It is a fine list and from what little ive had time to learn of 9th (ive just recently returned to Warhammer Fantasy hobby), it is similair to WHFB and shouldnt you have a rune of spellbreaking or several? Gyrocopters (steamcopters?) are great things and you might wish to have a second at the expense of some of those Miners. Seekers are Slayers i am supposing? Be careful not to be outshot and beware Slayers lack of armour - Crossbowdwarves and Ironbreakers are my personal favourite troop types and IMO your army lacks Cannons ... but ah well - thinking up a "perfect" army list is an impossibility and i can see and appreciate the strengths of yours ... but yes please remember magic defense. Good luck in your battles.

Thanks Shaun, solid feedback. I have the Aether Icon and Loathstone, which is basically a +2 generic dispell and an auto dispell. The marksmen have the special upgrade which ignore the long range penalty, so I'll be hitting targets on 4+ with S4 ap1 attacks. Icw the runed up Organ Gun I hope to control one flank at least. My King, Thane and Dragon Seeker all threaten monsteous stuff. The Dragon Seeker is downright dirty with 7 S6 attacks at i6 and multiwound 2 versus anything monstrous. The copter are a try-out, as I am fielding a unit of 2 skirmishing copters for the first time. 8 S5 BS4 quick to fire shot can be fun to peel off some wounds, but I'm not sure about it yet.

Sort of, but not really. The Aether Icon is a banner every army can field and grants a +2 to dispell. The Loathstone is indeed your average dispeller. 9th balance out magic in a way it's not mandatory but rather allows you to build an army around it. Except for armies like Vamprire Counts and Undying Dynasties, that will need magic to function normally.

Played my first test game versus a Saurian Ancient list with alotta those pesky shooty monsters, and three solid infantry blocks. Held it's own and the shooting didn't dissapoint!
