Starting with Steel Phalanx
List #2: Steel Phalanx’ Comradery.
Steel Phalanx’ synergy comes from the Enomotarchos Rule. This rule makes the army incredible mobile, gives the teams enough members to get some strong bonusses and on top of that… it negates all their Frenzied characteristics. Kill, without going hotheaded the next turn.
To focus on this Enomotarchos Rule, we’ll focus this list purely on the Myrmidon and Thorakitai units since both are able to benefit from this rule.
What you’ll need:
The Starter Boxed Set
The Myrmidon Boxed Set
Nesaie Alke Blister
Myrmidon Spitfire Blister
Support Boxed Set
Nesaie Alke, Thorakitai Officer (Spitfire)
Thorakitai (Combi Rifle)
Thorakitai (Light Rocket Launcher)
Eudoros, Myrmidon Officer (Mk12)
Myrmidon (Chain Rifle)
Myrmidon (Assault Hacker)
Two linkteams; one of the Myrmidons, one of the Thorakitai, allowing you to move these four units with one order.
You’ll need Eudoros or Nesaie Alke to form these linkteams, as only they bear the Enomotarchos Rules.
The Myrmidon linkteam is protected by their O.D.D.. Be careful though, Fire will damage this device and then they become much more fragile.
Chain Rifle, Spitfire, Mk12 and an Assault hacker makes this team a deadly fist that will drive forward.
Thorakitai are a support force, bringing a Medic and an Engineer (which can repair the O.D.D. in case it burns off), and a Light Rocket Launcher for some extra Fire support.
Nesaie Alke is a new unit, and a Thorakitai Officer. She is a Character Thorakitai, following the same template, but a bit boosted; better BS and BTS statline, and the Courage rule, allowing her to keep her ground.
The Netrod is a chance roll, as you have to deploy this antennea at the start of the game. It might give you an extra order, and only cost 4 points. Worthy investment! 😉
