Warmachine MKII - Army list attempts

Lets go burn stuff!!

I have to admit I just love setting stuff on fire, nothing nicer than seeing your opponents entire army marked with FIRE tokens - lovely stuff - so Feoras new ability in Mk2 that prevents continuous fire effects from disappearing is just awesome. But how do I use it, and how do the new points values compare to the old ones.

The PP forums give some clues, one poster in the Menoth community worked out that 1pt @ Mk2 is approximately equal to 15pts @ Mk1 which means our typical game formats now look like this:
  • MK1 350 pts --> Mk2 25 pts
  • Mk1 500 pts --> Mk2 35 pts
  • Mk1 750 pts --> Mk2 50 pts
So with that in mind here is a basic comparison between a standard list I would take at 350pts in Mk1 and how it would look in Mk2 at 25 pts

Mk1
Severius
Heirophant
Blessing of Vengeance
Exemplar Seneschal
Exemplar Seneschal
Choir (4)
Zealots (6) + MB
Rupert Cavalo
Wrack

TOTAL 350pts

Same list under Mk2 rules (31 pts --> 25 + Severius +6)
Severius
Heirophant
Blessing of Vengeance
Paladin Order of the Wall
Exemplar Seneschal
Exemplar Seneschal
Choir (4)
Zealots (6) + MB
Rupert Cavalo
Wrack (3)

TOTAL 30 pts

Same equivalent list except under Mk2 I can take 3 Wracks instead of 1 and add in the Paladin- so not bad!
