You may have seen this video, or the post on facebook with me asking for help for my next roster. Well let’s see what I ended up with!
I started by eliminating a bunch of affiliations until I had A-force, Asgard-Wakanda, Cabal and Syndicate. In the facebook poll Syndicate and Cabal battled it out for first with Syndicate winning. But lacking Luke Cage, and Lizard and Kraven not arriving early made it difficult to field the Syndicate I would like, so I decided to leave that for a week, and go With Cabal.
I came up with an initial list but then kept tweaking it. I definitely wanted Red Skull, Zemo, MODOK and Enchantress. And I really wanted to play with Deadpool. But I couldn’t decided weather to take Sin/Crossbones and Mr Sinister. My feeling was that Sin wants a lot of cheaper models, which didn’t match what Red Skull wanted. And If I was running Mr Sinister I needed cloning options AND to take his 2 cards. I could not do that, but then I felt I might be missing out. I also wanted models that weren’t affected by Forced Extraction. So I toyed with putting Sabretooth in the list. I also Contemplated Killmonger (affiliated), Shuri and Shuri (good), Medusa (also good), Nebula (Clone target) and thanks to facebook Mystique. I then watched a video by Rich_Mid where he talked about Hulk! Oh, and Loki. And Viper, and Venom!
So my potential list of options was:
- Mr Sinister
- Scarlet Witch
21 models and I can only pick 10. Doh!
Facebook overwhelmingly voted for Sin/Crossbones, Mr Sinister and Bob. No-one voted for my “don’t take Sin/bones or No Sinister options”. That would take my roster to 9, and then really I need another model as a possible clone target. Okoye was tempting, but then I might want to start with her. So Nebula seemed like a good option. Which would give me the roster I had at the start of the day, before I asked the community for help! At least I was on the pulse already!
So I have
- Mr Sinister
I can run pretty wide, taking 6 models at 16 threat if I want. I can take Sinister, Modok and Enchantress from 16 points, or 17 with Red Skull. And I have 3 models that can damage from Forced Extraction and don’t mind or are happy (Deadpool, Crossbones and Sin – who gains power from allied damage effects).
