Yep, I'm all for supporting Cipher and advise people to buy the new over the old, all of my models (bar Eurynome) are from Cipher. That being said, I'm impatient and loved the model too much to wait...besides, that is all off topic
would you like to comment on the list?
I used Eurynome for the first time on the weekend. As I am awaiting the demon of flesh models to be released, I took a list that was different from what I used above. It consisted of:
3 damned ones of wrath
1 damned one of sloth
1 great damned one of wrath
1 infernal ambassador
Basically what I learnt is that by having Eurynome, the mourner and the infernal ambassador in there, I was really wasting points. Eurynome fills the role that these two units occupy in the list due to all of his denial abilities, and the points can really be spent elsewhere. I really like how eurynome synergized with the damned ones of wrath. These units are never intended to last long, they are basically little hard hitting missiles, but with eurynome around them, they die, then get back up, do more damage and die again, so with Eurynome, they double their effectiveness.
One thing I learnt with Eurynome is that he is squishier than I thought. On paper, he looks solid, but it is very easy to get him into vulnerable positions when you are focusing on getting him to resurrect troops. Ricochet 2 is only a mild deterrant. The fact that he can use his abilities from anywhere on the board really means that he doesn't always have to be in the fray. I'm thinking next time I will try him with the demons of pride (to boost combat for my troops) and the succubus, then fill the rest of the points with various troops as he tends to synergize with them the best. Eurynome can fill the denial role on his own, then the rest of the force can focus on offense/defence. Thoughts?
