'Ard Boyz Missions

'Ard Boyz is just around the corner (this saturday, May 15th!) and the missions were released a few days ago.

Thoughts on the missions? Is anyone attending the event?


  1. I love it! The third scenario was a bit of a shocker, but I easily tweaked my list to get around it. By switching from two Stormravens and a couple Razerbacks to three Stormravens and a footing plasma tac squad in reserve I've cut myself down in KPs from the 30s to 21. The first scenario is going to be the hardest for me as I only have 2 scoring units, 3/4 if I combat squad, but my list is full of troop munching death star goodness so I'm not too worried.

  2. Thx for the input Schnitzel! I agree, I find the scenarios to be divergent from the norm (which is nice) while also maintaining a good balance. For instance the third mission hurts fast armies while the first mission tends to be in their favor.

    As for your troops really have less than 20 marines as scoring units in a 2500pt list? I highly recommend considering a 3rd unit of troops. Otherwise you leave yourself essentially unable to massacre an opponent in the first mission. And make it difficult to earn battle point modifiers in the second. However, if you feel that your 2-4 10/5 man marine squads will be resilient enough in the 2 scenarios where they'll be usefull, then no worries :). Also, for the second mission, it is more important to focus on the primary objective which does not involve troops so you really wouldn't have much to worry about there either. Best of luck this weekend, let us know how you fair!
