Trent here again, this time I will be escalating Black Sun. I have not played Black Sun as much as I have played the other factions so a lot of my choices will be based on what seems like a good team instead of play experience. With that note out of the way, let’s get started with a 200 point team.
At 200 points I would run Promethea, Arkham, Styx, 2 Type- 005’s with the Assault upgrade, and Raziel Archetypum with the Indestructible upgrade. This gives you 7 characters at a very low point total; pretty much guaranteeing that you will outnumber your opponent. Promethea is one of the best controllers in the organization and has many great buffs for your undead. Styx is very good at protecting Promethea while Arkham slings spells around. Type – 005 is your rank and file zombie while Raziel plays the role of the power hitter.
At 300 points I would add Kingsley and another Raziel with the indestructible upgrade. As you add more undead to your list you will need more controllers and Kingsley is very good at that job. The second Raziel will add some more much needed hitting power.
At 400 levels I would add Clover and another Type – 005 with the commander special rule. Clover is a power house of a leader and gets to take all the advantages of being undead with none of the disadvantages. With all the Type – 005’s you already have on the table adding a commander model would be a great boon to your battle efforts.
500 points is time for the zombie horde. I would add a Type – 009 with the commander upgrade and a Raziel Nk – X with the indestructible upgrade. The Type – 009 will make your army of Type – 005 even stronger, and that much more of a threat to your enemies. The Nk – X is as close to an unstoppable killing machine as Black Sun can get. He has an average attack of five, but does a massive 8 damage just for basic attacks.
At 600 points I would add Lynn Steiner and Type – 012: Hunter with the Regeneration Upgrade. Now you may be wondering why I wouldn’t add more zombies, but in this list it is important to keep all those zombies under your control as much as possible, and they need enough AP to do things on their turns. Right now there are only three controller characters available so I wanted to add another living character to keep things balanced.
Well that is all I have for this one. As usual I would love to read your comments so don’t be shy. Next time I will be escalating Azure Alliance which will be very interesting as I have played them the least of any organization.
