Starting with Steel Phalanx
List #3: Let’s go Troy on their A.S.S.es!
As you might have noticed by now, Steel Phalanx’ is inspired by the Greek heroes that fought during the Troian battle.
One of the biggest heroes of the Troian battle was Achilles, a young Greek warrior favoured by the gods. He fought, and died during the battle of Troy, but according to legend he was the bravest, most handsome and glorious warrior in the Greek history.
Aleph sure took note of this Greek hero, and constructed one of its L-Host in the liking of this famous warrior.
This list will focus on Achilles and his Myrmidon warriors.
What you need:
Myrmidon Boxed Set
Myrmidon Spitfire Blister
Support Boxed Set
Achilles (Multi Rifle)
Myrmidon Officer Chain of Command (Boarding Shotgun)
Myrmidon (Chain Rifle)
Myrmidon (Chain Rifle)
Ekdromoi (Chain Rifle)
Achilles is a man-sized TAG. His stats are on par with many TAGs, his Close Combat Stats are even better. Martial Arts Lv4, Kinematica L2 combined with an Explosive Combat Weapon. He literally vaporizes everything in close combat.
Achilles can move up to 10 inches per order, has an O.D.D. to keep him safe, and his Kinematica allows him to shuffle his dodges and engage skills up to 4 inch. Multiterrain allows him to keep doing this no matter where he is running.
The only upside for your opponent is the fact that he becomes Impetuous in Turn 2, as he undoubtebly killed something in the first turn. This negates Achilles the benefit of partial cover, so only his O.D.D. will protect him (-6 on any BS action, which is still sickening).
Achilles is unable to form a team, so he’ll be off on his own. Let’s focus on the rest of the list.
A linkteam of Myrmidons. You’ll need the Officer to form the team, but not to worry. In case Achilles really dies because someone shoots him in the heel, the Officer will take over his Lieutenant role, allowing you to continue the fight without Loss of Lieutenant.
The Officer comes with Chain of Command, Zero-V Smoke Grenades, and a whole load of other goodies that is part of a Myrmidon. Together with boosted stats and No Wound Incapacitation.
The rest of the Myrmidons carry a load of weapons to finish everything off.
The Ekdromoi and Netrods are for surprise and order support. You might feel the Netrods are a bit wonky to count on two of the eight orders, but remember; You’re bringing Achilles to a 200 point game. You pay for that. That’s like bringing a tank to a gunfight.
