So I was messing around, trying to come up with a 35 point Four Star merc force. I liked some of the suggestions I got from Von, so I went with that as my basis. Here is what I came up with.
Magnus the Traitor
Steelhead Halberdiers (Leader and 5 Grunts)
Steelhead Heavy Cavalry (Leader and 2 Grunts)
Master Gunner Dougal MacNaile
Reinholdt, Gobber Speculator
Rhupert Carvolo, Piper of Ord
That leaves me with 2 points. With those I can either max out the Steelhead Halberdiers to 10, I can get Dirty Meg for a Jack Marshall (The Mariner) / Repair Person, I can add Kell Bailoch for Sniper Power, Doc Killingsworth for some healing power for Magnus or I could add a Sea Dog Deck Gun for some Artillery.
Not sure what to go with to be honest.
The main idea is use the Haberdiers as a Tarpit / Threat in the center of the board, the Cav to run in with the flank bonus to cause more damage, and Stannis to let them do their crazy shennanigans. Lets not forget the guns either.
The master Gunner is there to boost my Mariner, and when its time to let the 2 Renegades and the Mariner rain AOE Death. The Gobber is there simply because I had a spare point but I could drop him easily. Rhupert is there to help the Steelhead be more of a pain in the rear (Tough!).
More then likely Magnus will be casting Blur on himself or the Steelhead, Snipe on his Mariner (19in RNG AOE? Yes please), and Tempered Armor on one of the Renegades to protect it (more armor)
Iron Agression will most likely be used on the other Renegade just because its free to Upkeep.
Any suggestions or thoughts?
Also be warned: This may be something you face in the The Vassal Challenge for those of you who are curious. Its always best to have some options ain’t it?
