Warzone newbie taking an interest in the Dark Legion
« on: December 19, 2005, 05:54:03 PM »
I'm interested in playing Warzone but currently have my hands full with Chronopia. 
I'd like to start Warzone one day but in the meantime, I figure doing some homework would help a bit when the time comes.  That said, can anyone would be so kind to provide any info on DL playing styles, especially Semai and Muawijhe?  By the look of things, they could be shooty as well as close combat oriented.   I'm thinking more of both to balance things out but how does it work out within the frame work of said factions or any factions for that matter?

Thanks in advance!

Muawijhe is a fun army to play, if you use Acolytes...the Acolytes provide a strong, shooty force to lay down fire until you can get the Zenithian Soulslayers and Carnophages in close to do that voodoo that they do so well...

the other one that is fun is Ilian...that force has a good troop choice (Templars), and a real nasty special character (Karak the Keeper)...

I play both Algeroth and Ilian. I find both of these forces pretty flexible. I can play shooty or close combat, depending on what kind of mood I am in!. The force lists are extremely flexible because you can choose horde or cults (only 1...not both at the same time!) with whichever apostle you choose to follow.

My advice is to read the fluff, check out the models and choose the force that appeals to you in this way. You can pretty much shape it into an army to your liking if you do this!

Good luck and have fun. Pm me if I can help!

Most apostles have a mix of Shooty and CCey troops. 

Of those Ilian is probably most suited as the ones that don't have Deadshot (which allows you to shoot into CC with no penalty) have a nasty group combination attack.

Thanks for the replies!

I was thinking of a Muawijhe force comprised of Acolytes or Initiates from the cult list backed by Karnophages, Furies, and Zenithians.  A balanced list of long and medium range firepower and CC goodness.   Another fun list I was thinking is a Semai one.  With infiltrators backed by some cult firepower, such a list could be a fun army to play.  Any thoughts? 

Thanks again!

That's what I'm thinking!  Everyone's playing the "good" guys with white or grey hats, that it would be cool to add a villain into the mix.  Not to mention, DL are sorely misrepresented in our area.  Sadly,  this idea might not see the light of day as I have too much Chronopia stuff to paint.

Oh well,  I'll give it a shot.  Warzone's too cool to miss.

That's ok. As you can tell from my Capitol, none of it is painted. :)  I'm sure me and Masherking'll be ok with you throwing some metal-colored acolytes at us.

All I know is that I'll need my army painted by Dreamation.

COBRA does not run away!!

They just strategically re-deploy. :)
