Epic Kreoss @ 35 Points

I have been putting together some 35 point lists for the up and coming Iron Wrath III tournament at Maelstrom Games next month. So I thought Epic Kreoss would be a good place to start. This has changed my painting plans and put the Knights Exemplar on the painting table.

The tournament does not have the Steamroller character restrictions, so I can put Rhoven, Vilmon and the Covenant in all lists.

I have played this list against Tyler’s Mercenaries over the weekend and narrowly lost the game, but was very happy with how it played.

Grand Exemplar Kreoss (*6pts)
Reckoner (8pts)
Choir of Menoth (Leader and 3 Grunts) (2pts)
Exemplar Bastions (Leader and 4 Grunts) (8pts)
Knights Exemplar (Leader and 5 Grunts) (5pts)
Visgoth Juviah Rhoven & 2 Honor Guard (4pts)
Eiryss, Angel of Retribution (3pts)
High Paladin Dartan Vilmon (3pts)
Paladin of the Order of the Wall (2pts)
Paladin of the Order of the Wall (2pts)
The Covenant of Menoth (2pts)
Vassal of Menoth (2pts)

Apart from being painted (apart from the Knights at the moment), here are my thoughts/reasons for inclusion in the list. I wanted a list of Weapon Masters to go along with Kreoss’s feat, which is basically auto hit in melee with an additional attack.  Therefore this being the reason for putting the Knights Exemplar on the painting table. So apart from the support solos/units and Eyrss all miniatures are Weapon Masters.

Painting the Protectorate of Menoth

I have put together this painting schedule so to satisfy one of my final new year resolutions, that being to have a 35 point Warmachine army fully painted by the end of the year.  At the moment I am playing with bare metal and really prefer to play with painted miniatures.  It brings a new level of enjoyment and satisfaction to playing games.  Plus its an army which I can take to a few 35 point tournaments in the new year, which is something I am planning!

So onto the schedule.  October will be the Covenant, and Paladin only three miniatures and a book to paint.  November will see if I am successful or not with the Vassal, Choir (four miniatures) and the Reckoner all on the painting table.  December and the remaining unit of five Bastions.  December being a busy month with Christmas, etc I have decided on just leaving the Bastions to paint.

Will I be successful?  It will be great to play a few game with a fully painted 35 point Protectorate of Menoth army over Christmas!


First Protectorate of Menoth 35 points

Here is my first proper Protectorate of Menoth 35 points list.  The Paladin of the Order of the Wall, Choir of Menoth and Vassal of Menoth are all on order and hopefully will be here within the week.  The Exemplar Bastions will be ordered shortly!  I decided to opt for the Reckoner heavy warjack over another unit as I love the miniature.

War Caster
High Exemplar Kreoss

Heavy Warjacks
Crusader
Reckoner

Light Warjacks
Repenter
Revenger

Units
Choir of Menoth (4 miniatures)
Exemplar Bastions (5 miniatures)

Solos
Paladin of the Order of the Wall
The Covenant of Menoth
Vassal of Menoth

I have also decided on the miniatures for my 50 point list, with only a question over the The Wrack or Vassal Mechanik.  Going to have another attempt to successfully build the Exemplar Errant Seneschal without the banner becoming weak at the joints.  These are the miniatures which will make up the 50 point list.

Exemplar Errants (5 miniatures)
Exemplar Errant Officer & Standard Bearer (2 minatures)
Exemplar Errant Seneschal
Daughters of the Flame (5 miniatures)
The Wrack or Vassal Mechanik

So my plan is to have the entire 35 point list fully painted and based by the end of the year.  And to play a game at least once a week with the list between now and the end of the year.


Protectorate of Menoth Progress

I now have a Protectorate of Menoth 15 point list which contains High Exemplar Kreoss, Crusader, Repenter, Revenger, Exemplar Errant Seneschal and The Covenant of Menoth. High Exemplar Kreoss, Repenter and the Revenger are now all painted and I have started painting the Crusader. Will have to post up some pictures soon.

My next purchases will be a unit of Exemplar Errants along with the Exemplar Errant Officer & Standard Bearer unit attachment. After that it will probably be a Choir of Menoth unit. Along with a Vassal Mechanic that will complete a 25 point list.


Protectorate of Menoth 35 points

At the moment I only have the Protectorate of Menoth battlebox set.  Kreoss and the Revenger are now painted and have started on the Crusader, I will be posting pictures when I can.  The battlebox set totals 11 points, I want to have a 35 point army by the end of the year fully painted.  My aim being to attend a few 35 point tournaments in the new year, then continue to build a full 50 point.

War Caster
High Exemplar Kreoss

Heavy Warjacks
Crusader
Reckoner

Light Warjacks
Repenter
Revenger

Units
Choir of Menoth (4 miniatures)
Exemplar Bastions (5 miniatures)
Exemplar Errants (5 miniatures)

Solos
Exemplar Errant Seneschal
The Covenant of Menoth

The 50 point list at this point will more than likely contain the following.  I would have liked the Exemplar Errant Officer & Standard Bearer unit attachment in the 35 point list, but couldn’t find the points.  These are mostly miniatures which I like the look of and want to paint.  Mind you, I think these will exceed 50 points so will have some decisions to make!

Exemplar Errant Officer & Standard Bearer (2 minatures)
Daughters of the Flame (5 miniatures)
Vassal of Menoth

Visgoth Juviah Rhoven & Honor Guard (3 miniatures)
