Just puzzling over Jonus+Trelix w/Heavy Laser.
The list I was thinking of was…
31 = Jonus w/assault missiles, seismic charges, swarm tactics
46 = Trelix w/ intelligence agent, Heavy Laser Cannon, seismic charges
23 = Scimitar Pilot w/Assault missiles, seismic charges.
(can replace Scimitar w/gamma pilot so that Trelix uses assault missiles)
you’d have jonus in the middle of the group letting the other two reroll two of their secondary dices(trelix could reroll 3). The idea is definitely to have a heavy alpha strike, but also, the intel. agent allows for more accurate dropping of those seismic charges. I wondered about having HLC vs. assault missiles on Trelix, but I wasn’t sure. oh right, the swarm tactics would let the bombers shoot first vs. swarmy armies.
so, those assault missiles have a very good chance of landing with Jonus in the pack. If its a jousting type contest, and especially if Trelix sees it coming, all the bombs get dropped at once for more auto damage. after the ammo’s all spent, there’s not much left for the bombers, but they pack a punch while they’re fully functional.
I was really wondering at first when I was writing this about Jonus in concert with Trelix and the HLC. I guess the post isn’t just about the list, but also more about the idea of Jonus and Trelix together. Combined, with the HLC, they have 65 points sunk in, which is a vast majority of a list, 22 of which being naked jonus, which is pretty much dead weight. anyways, drop dat knowlege!
Thanks for listening.
