Best Formation for a Reborn Warhost?
« on: February 22, 2017, 11:21:05 PM »
Which Formation(s) are the best fit for a Reborn Warhost in terms of flexibility and offensive output?

My vote is for Cegorach's Revenge because it allows you to run and charge in the same turn giving the greatest degree of flexibility and offensive output. It also has rerolling ones with a 6+ FnP from the Reborn Warhost. Admittedly not great but something tonmake T3 a little more survivable.

Can you no longer take a Masque detachment to get the run+charge bonus?!

The problem with Cegorach's Revenge is the sheer size of it. Mine runs to about 1500 points just on its own and in order to get it into a Reborn Warhost I need to add a minimum of an HQ and 2 Troops.

One of the nice things about Strength from Death is that you can actually simulate having Rising Crescendo as you can move, Soulburst move and then charge. It's not as good as Rising Crescendo as you can't 100% rely on getting it but I do think it means you can run 'Quins in units or formations that don't have Rising Crescendo.

I'm working around using Cegorach's Revenge as well. With a small CWE contingent to bump it up to 1850. Haven't tested it yet, so we will see how it goes.

Adding a shadowseer to a seer council to give them veil.
3 SH in an aspect host. 3 large blast templates, a possible 36" of movement for a flyby and if one unit dies in the opponents turn, skyleap to come back in yours.
