Heya all, I'm new to the game and have settled on the mighty swans as my faction of choice. Ive been lurking awhile and reading on the webs watchin bat reps etc and I really dig the look and shooty playstyle of Cygnar. I've decided I'd like to run a fairly standard N3MO list cause It seems straightforward while still being effective. And a solid all comers list (or as close as can reasonably be expected) and those are two things I'm looking for in the beginning of my adventure: ease of use, and broadly viable.
That being said I'd love to know from people who have experience with/against him any and all tips, tricks, things to watch out for, good match ups, bad match ups, lists that are a good second list or pair with him etc etc. resources to read or watch, anything helps !
Thanks in advance for any help or info! And I'm looking forward to getting to know the community on here
If you're playing against models with lightning immunity, you may shed a few tears.
In terms of pairing, it depends slightly on your list build. Nemo3 typically has a combined arms approach with a slight bias towards ranged damage (for all the lightning goodness and his spells), so going for something that isn't punished too badly by spell immunity or stealth would be my advice. So a jack-heavy army, possibly heavy metal theme, would be a sensible approach with a caster like Stryker1, Haley2 or maybe Darius who all bring a good toolbox for enabling a melee/attrition game.
But it is always worth stress-testing your lists, even anti-ranged lists can struggle to deal with all the lightning generator/electro-leap shots you have in place (especially if you target your own models) while Arlan Strangewayes can hand out magical weapons to a key warjack (Hopefully Dynamo).
There some video reports out there which shows the tricks of the lightning. Like you usually shoot your own guys not the enemy ! Nemo3 is great in storm division theme. You will usually need another pair against cygnar opponents because all the immune-to-lightning
