    Default Post your Free Folk Army Lists!

    What are people running for Free Folk armies? The challenge seems to be having enough Free Folk raiders to make them useful, while also leaving room for some of the more "elite" members of the Free Folk army.

    Trappers seem amazing for dealing with Wolves and putting out wounds on hard to damage units, but I couldn't squeeze them into this first list. Share your lists below!

    My plan:

    x4 Freefolk Raider w/ x2 Raid Leader
    x2 Freefolk Trapper (For the flanks, to punish expensive units with those automatic wounds!)
    x1 Spearwives w/ Mance, Commander
    x1 Giant (To finish off tarpitted units)

    Craster
    Val

    I like it! The trappers will help deal with more maneuverable units as well.

    Does anyone know what the non commander version of Mance does? or does he has to be the commander if you field him?
    because i have a 40 point list but with 3 points to spare and would like to use mance for that.
    otherwise, what does tormont non commander do?

    Kind regards

    I Can't help wondering about Trapper Spam with a couple of Giants thrown in :-)

    I tried this one tonight:

    Raiders
    +Tormund (Commander)

    Raiders
    +Raid Leader

    Spearwives
    +Spearwife Matriarch

    Savage Giant
    Savage Giant
    Savage Giant

    NCUS
    Lady Val
    Craster

    40 pts.

    Versus a Greatjon Umber list. Things kinda fell apart when I failed two charges in a row.

    I like the idea of three giant lists, but my thoughts so far are that if you go that route in a 40 point game you need to maximize Raiders.

    So for instance I have been trying 4 raiders (one with raid leader), 3 giants, and then your same NCUs. It has done ok against Stark, will be trying it against Lannisters soon.

    I already test this list versus a Lannister army with Guards and Mountain men.


    Moral tests hurts if you are a little far away of Mance and short range is really short...
    In addition, with the Lannister "Fealty to the crown" card, each fail will be hardly sanctionned and Mountain men will be healed :-/


    This list is not the best versus moral test armies I guess...

    This is a simple "Northern Flood"-list, which is build around having more activations as the enemy.
    Craster's task is to regulate the giants damage-output ideally keeping them at around 3 to 4 wounds.
    Mance is my fixed-build-in-NCU as he's a heck of a nuisance to the enemy.
    The single raid leader is to activate giants, not the free folk.
    The Free Folk Raiders are there to.... err... well, die. Flood, shield the giants from X-bow or scorpions, eat heavy enemy impacts , prepare enemy-units for the giant's broom.


    Commander: Tormund Giantsbane - Thunderfist

    • Free Folk Raiders (3) with Tormund Giantsbane - Thunderfist (0)
    • Free Folk Raiders (3) with Raid Leader (1)
    • Free Folk Raiders (3)
    • Free Folk Raiders (3)
    • Free Folk Raiders (3)
    • Free Folk Raiders (3)

    • Savage Giant (7)
    • Savage Giant (7)NCUs:

    • Craster - Ally of Convenience (3)
    • Mance Rayder - Artful Tactician (4)

    This list worked quite well against a mixed stark-list... just had to keep the giants out of Stark-bowmen's reach over the heads of my raiders.
    Against Lannister they bleed, and much so. That d*#@ supremacy enforced by a captain let's the raiders melt like butter in chernobyl... barely won by points as i kept my giants out of combat and focussed on the victory-points on the table. So againts Lannister this is a hard list to play - i'll have to figure out something else (waiting for the cave dwellers and the followers of bone).

    The jist: Tons of sunder. Jarl swinging in from the side, with 10 die attacks thanks to Harma. Ygritte on the field to assassinate. Trappers supporting the Spearwives and Followers with their bubble of doom. Styr nibbling on enemy units. Manse weakening the heavy hitters. Everyone having a grand time, not bending the knee. Ta dah!

    Really like the list & think Harma has some real potential as a commander. I tend to like the Cave Dweller Savages more than the Spearwives for 5 pt units. How have your Spearwives fared in your battles? Any non-obvious synergies w Harma?

    SAVAGE RAIDERS
    Combat Units:
    Cave Dweller Savages (5) with Tormund Giantsbane - Thunderfist (0)
    Cave Dweller Savages (5) with Rattleshirt - Ruthless Slaughterer (2)
    Savage Giant (7)
    Savage Giant (7)
    Free Folk Raiders (3) with Raid Leader (1)
    Free Folk Raiders (3) with Raid Leader (1)

    Non-Combat Units:
    Styr - Iron-Fisted Tyrant (3)
    Ygritte - Kissed By Fire (3)

    Run the Giants up the middle as anvils flanked by Cave Dwellers on one side and Raiders on the other that combine their attacks. When the Raiders hit second, they take advantage of their +1 to hit bonus. With the Cave Dwellers hitting last, there is a good chance they will be able to effectively use their "missing ranks" bonuses.

    Tormund in one Cave Dweller unit and Rattleshirt in another should add some extra free 6"+D6 charges into the mix.

    Can run it as one massive spear point with two giants in the middle, or as two independent flanks that converge in the middle.

    Styr provides an extra punch for giants against armored units or gives Tormund those critical last wounds that ensure a unit's destruction and give him the free charge bonus.

    Ygritte is there to steal a zone, provide unit disruption and steal tactics cards.

    Good list !!!
    rattleshirt is THE attachment for me (with cave dweller) and styr THE ncu
    may be two raid leaders is too much, and one unit of trappers is a useful option (for wolf or cavalry; and disorder charge)
    i like Mance Rayder (ncu) in place of Ygritte, if you target « letter » you can place two tokens and weaken a lot a unit.
