Stupid Cryx List: 8-Wound Mayhem

 
The idea behind this Stupid Cryx List is fielding as many 8-wound models as possible, including such Mercs or Minions that fit that criteria.
 
50-point 8-Wound Mayhem (48 models)
  • Skarre1 +6
  • Helldiver – 3
  • Helldiver – 3
  • Black Ogrun Boarding Party (max) – 6
  • Black Ogrun Boarding Party (max) – 6
  • Bloat Thrall – 2
  • Bloat Thrall – 2
  • General Gerlak Slaughterborn – 3
  • Mechanithralls (min) – 3
  • Brute Thrall X3 – 3
  • Mechanithralls (min) – 3
  • Brute Thrall X3 – 3
  • Mechanithralls (min) – 3
  • Brute Thrall X3 – 3
  • Iron Lick Overseer – 3
  • (ILO) Stalker – 4
  • Ogrun Bokur (client: Skarre1) – 3
  • Gudrun the Wanderer – 3
 
I chose Skarre1 because she really turns this into a brute squad. Her feat makes them a ridiculously high wall of wounds, and Dark Guidance helps the Mechanithralls overcome their low MAT. I chose the Stalker for the Iron Lich Overseer because its 2X control range seemed useful. The ILO is only in the list because it has 8 wounds, but by itself it seemed silly.
 
This list could do quite well for holding zones and screening Skarre. There are so many bullet magnets that the opponent is spoiled for choice–and would have a hard time taking them all out. Brute Thralls would eat high ARM for lunch–especially on feat turn. The ILO+Stalker can flank or go solo hunting. Or both. Helldivers add to the general confusion.
 
Except … without the Skarlock Thrall, Skarre’s stuck casting Ritual Sacrifice herself (which is a lot like not casting it at all). Also the list has no answer for bad terrain and no upkeep removal.
 
A quick fix for some of the problems might be to remove the Stalker and/or one unit of Mechanithralls and sub in Skarlock Thrall and Scrap Thralls (for Ritual Sacrifice), Satyxis Blood Witches + Blood Hag (more infantry clearing plus Tough denial, upkeep removal and clouds), and Saxon Orrik (Pathfinder).
 
Still, even in the original, stupid form, the list could be a lot of fun. =)

    Oops. Forgot Bane Lord Tartarus.

    Might have to drop one of the McThralls+Brute Thralls to slot him in. Or the Stalker.
