fools errand winning lists

This is the Fools Errand Winning Lists! While some may think it’s a Fool’s Errand to try and beat Light Harlequins, others are out and about doing just that. While others are running around with their own clown posse. Especially in the case of the Dark Harlequin players at this event. Melee Dark Harlequins can be very dangerous with Troupes fighting twice, bonus damage on weapons, bonus, bonus AP, stacking stratagems and fighting on death if they hadn’t fought yet. 

Fools Errand 1st Place Ozzie Meloche – (Dark) Harlequins

Fools Errand 1st Place Winning LIst Harlequins
Harlequin by AlejandroDMarco

Congratulations to Ozzie. This is the first Dark Harlequins first Major win that we’re tracking. Usually Dark Harlequins are outshined by Light Harlequins.  Taking a walk on the Dark Side has its merits. Dark Troupe Masters hit hard. Ozzie has Queen of Shards to ignore Invulnerable saves on a 5+ to Wound. This won’t be as necessary against units with high armor saves but when Dark Harlequins use Cegorach’s Rose as it’s ap-3. 

Fog of Dreams is a great way to keep a beaten down unit of Void weavers around. Very important to do when taking the To The Last Secondary. However, until that becomes necessary, it can help keep a Troupe unit alive when having to move out into the open or sitting on a secondary. 

As a side note, if you play Harlequins check out our Top 5 Harlequin Tactics from pro player Colin Mcdade.

Fools Errand 2nd Place Calvin Osterdal – Custodes

Fools Errand 2nd Place List
Warhammer 40k Custodes General by bachzim

Congratulations to Calvin, there was a spare 20 Points in this list but that handicap didn’t stop him. The Golden boys are very tough. For Example the Shield Captain on the bike has -1 to be hit and a 5+++ ignore wounds ability on top of 9 wounds and Toughness 6. He is even tougher when he can’t be shot at due to the Wardens being near by. Perhaps the spare Points could have gone to one of the Custodes Squad but the 3 sword and board squad are just hard to kick out of cover with a 0+ Save. 

Two Bike Squads are good as 3 can suck up a lot of points but to make up for the missing squad is the Telemon. Tough and hard hitting. With plenty of quality of shots to make up for the low number of shots from the bike squad. Good Job.

Fools Errand 3rd Place Cory Burns – Harlequins

3rd place Fools Errand Harlequins
Harlequin Shadowseer by Anas Works

Here it is, one of the meaner builds for Troupe Masters. Player of the Dark does a Mortal wound in addition to the normal damage 3 of the Rose. It’s only on a 5+ but remember the Queen of shards won’t allow for invulnerable saves on that same 5+ to wound and the Rose in Dark Hands is AP -3.

 Cory built in a little bit of extra mortal wound defense with the laughing Gods Eye. There are only 7 Voidweavers in this list proving that 9 aren’t needed to make it to the podium. 

The large Troupes come with a variety of weapons. Which means additional access to stratagems such as removing invulnerable saves and doing mortal wounds. While there are limits where one stratagem can’t be used on the same unit as another stratagem, the simple solution is to just take more Troupes. Well done.
