So i was chatting with a friend of mine and we wanted to make Zero synergy theme lists. Our first attempt was a failure but got me thinking so i posted it here.
Seige 1 (no theme) 75pt -Reliant -Triump
Steelhead Halbadiers (max) ×3 Horgenhold Forge Guards (min) ×2 Alexia Ciannor and the Risen Lady Ayanna and Master Holt
Zero synergy until we looked at it closer. Fox hole helps to protect alexia, seige, ayanna and holt. Reliant is a second magical gun with explosivo. And seiges feat does not need friendly faction models to benifit from it
Sloan has nothing to do with Lancers(you know, Dusts to Dusts is only usable on the fixed situation). Hitch and Runewood has no units to buff(perhaps Runewood give Pathfinder to the other Cygnar solos and Sloan?). Keller is simply useless. The other Mercenaries are not have any synergies at all as well.
You create your own destiny, and your lot in life is not fixed at birth.
Truth is truth, regardless how bitter it is. Dawn will come even if the rooster is strangled. Rest in Peace, Captain Victoria Haley, Captain Dixon Lynch, Lieutenant Darsey Ryan, and Sergeant Samuel Watts. You are my heroes in the dark times. As an arch-hater of vancian magic, I curse the abomination. It should be removed from the history for good.
I actually played a game with a friend where we had to make each other the worst list possible and then had to play those lists. There were rules though, you had to use all the points and the lists had to contain at least 1 unit, 1 solo, and all jack points had to be used.
The cygnar lists were bad but unremarkable. The skorne list he made for me though... Painfully bad lol.
It's actually a good way of getting the creative juices flowing and I recommend you try it. Necessity is the mother of invention, and you won't find value in the chaff unless you have to use it!
