    Hello all Lords,

    I create this topic for a small “game” we are going to play, this is going to happen:

    1- You tell me your favorite unit in the game. (the only rule is that it shouldn’t be mind control immune)
    2- Ill play a theocrat or rogue and will gather all those units that you guys tell me in this topic.
    3- I will gather all those units in an army and face it off against any challenge I come across.
    4- I am going to post screenshots, and a kill count/ cause of death for your particular unit.

    oh and don’t you dare to start a discussion about balance or which unit is better. you can use some other topic for that. lets see how a combined army of formite fair against the cruel cruel word.

    Oooh, cool concept. Are you sure you can pull it off though? Even with eight players there’s a decent chance of a unit being unobtainable.

    Hmph. All the best units have MCI 🙁

    I guess Halfling Farmer for me then, just to make sure there is a chicken in the mix 😀
    Wait, no: dread monkey 😀

    Are there actually any racial units with MCI at recruit besides sphinx?

    But one that’s a particular favorite of mine is feathered serpent, and actually you can get that through the MCU, so I suppose that’s not a problem is it?

    My text…

    For me, get yourself a High Elf Succubus, if you’re going rogue.

    If you’re going Theo, I want a Deathbringer. Prefer Frostlings, but don’t really matter.

    Can’t wait for the screenies…

    Hmm I think I go Theocrat because that also help me keeping the units alive when the army is still being set up. so that will be a frostling deathbringer.

    If you want to take some cool screenshots of the whole lineup:
    Run in debug mode
    CTRL + B to unlock free camera
    CTRL + ALT + U to hide the UI
    CTRL + P to freeze animations

    That is actually pretty useful to increase the quality of the report, Thanks Lord Tibbles

    For my choice I impose upon you, the requirement to add the most dejected of units to your line-up: the outdated Goblin Skewer, now only found as independent guards!

    Getting this army together gets more fun after each suggestion. The Goblin Skrewer will become the first unit in the second division Lord Host.

    Cool idea! Your lineup will never be truly complete without a dire penguin, though. 😉

    So Lord JPol, I put a dire penguin under your name in the second division.

    Magnificent Overlord Darkslash, as much as you would hate it, i must put a name of a creature. A most vile creature. A creature that is well known within this walls. A creature that some lords consider mount. Ha! If only they could see beyond their pride…They find themselves to be the tool for eight legged queen. Vampire spider queen. She should be at your side.

    #221340

    I demand a paragon Golden Dragon. There is no other.

    Hail to the shinning one, the breath of the immortal sun!

    #221355

    Since Firstborns are off the table. Either Dwarf Forge Priest or Halfling Eagle Rider or Shock Troopers. (My three favorite races) any of these are cool for me.

    As befitting a lord I shall be represented on the field of battle as a true noble. A knight for me Dark Lord!

    gah! as much as the thought pains me in my very evil essence I will comply to your request Lord GreyMonkey, a vampire spider queen in the second battalion

    I demand a paragon Golden Dragon. There is no other.
    Hail to the shinning one, the breath of the immortal sun!

    as you wish Lord chrysophylax páuperem also a golden dragon for the second battalion

    Since Firstborns are off the table. Either Dwarf Forge Priest or Halfling Eagle Rider or Shock Troopers. (My three favorite races) any of these are cool for me.

    A firstborn is not a problem, Ill capture a city and produce a firstborn to suit your needs Lord Azktor Warsgen.

    As befitting a lord I shall be represented on the field of battle as a true noble. A knight for me Dark Lord!

    And the human knight would rid with pride as last unit for the second battalion Lord Cameron.

    So the second battalion would be:

    -1 goblin skewer
    -2 Dire penguin
    -3 Vampire spider queen
    -4 golden dragon
    -5 firstborn
    -6 human knight

    not bad we already have 2 full battalions of conscripts. and a lone kraken as fleet

    Third battalion will have a Nightshade Fairy as first unit Strategos Charlatan
