Vanaheim Air Cav, Pricing, and Consequences

Postby Spectrar Ghost » Sun Feb 20, 2011 6:38 pm

I am considering my next push for Epic. Exodus Wars is releasing the Khazari Valkyrie Transport variant next month. Along with the new jumptroopers, this means I have the ability to make a Vanaheim (link to list) or Elysian (link) list using a minimum of GW models.

Why would I use a minimum of GW models? The simple answer is that I can make a 3k list entirely from GW and FW product for around $400. The same force, comprised mostly of EW with Aircraft provided by Dark Realm Miniatures and perhaps FW if I strike out on other sources, and third party infantry, will cost (I'm estimating, haven't got a concrete price on the infantry) about 125GBP/$200 max. That assumes the basic infantry cost 1GBP/stand, which is unlikely. Indirect rant on costs done.

The list I'm considering consists of :

Vanaheim Regimental HQ 500
3 Valkyrie
2 Vendetta
1 Supreme Commander
9 Infantry

Vanaheim Infantry Company 400
3 Valkyrie
2 Vendetta
1 Commander
9 Infantry

Vanaheim Infantry Company 400
3 Valkyrie
2 Vendetta
1 Commander
9 Infantry

Vanaheim Infantry Company 400
3 Valkyrie
2 Vendetta
1 Commander
9 Infantry

Storm Trooper Platoon 350
4 Valkyrie
8 Storm Troopers

Vulture Squadron 300
4 Vultures

Light Sentinel Squadron 100
4 Light Sentinels

Light Sentinel Squadron 100
4 Light Sentinels

Lightning Strike Fighter Squadron 150
2 Lightning Strike Fighters

Lightning Strike Fighter Squadron 150
2 Lightning Strike Fighters

Thunderbolt Squadron 150
2 Thunderbolts

I'm curious how people feel about the list (both the army list and the list I've constructed) and whether there would be opposition to my using it.

It would also entail my ordering from EW and another source (PM me), and would be an opportunity to get group orders going for those who are interested.

I don't know this specific list, but don't most command stands get their own transport? It's unusual to have 5 transports w/ 9 infantry stands and 1 command stand. Typically, it would be 8 infantry stands, and 1 command for 5 transports.

AFAIK, the Steel Legion List is the only one that command stand gets it's own transport. The Elysian list is Command, 7 Infantry, and 4 Valks. Eldar, Space Marines, Orks, Tau, etc all have the exact number of slots need, and no more (well, except for the single Razorback upgrade). I think the Commander in his own vehicle is a product of the 5-man Command squad in 40k.
