Flying Bears Army
As most players of Armies of Zatikon have found out quickly, some armies are for experimenting with and work well against the computer, 2 vs 2, or co-op, while others are really standard power armies, good for constructed formats, and simply all- around play.
“Flying Bears” is one of those! First, check out this army list:
Wizard 350 pts
Druid 250 pts
General 150 pts
Pikeman 50 pts
Barbarian 50 pts
Possessed 100 pts
Bowman 50 pts
The premise of this army is to get down the Wizard and Druid next to each other, pump out bears with the druid (6 life, 1 armor, 4 damage), and use the ability of the wizard to make them fly! Moving 3 squares any direction, over units, and saving their 2 commands for attacks only makes these juggernauts into a rushing army instead of wall-ish protectors of the druid.
The other units- Barbarian, Possessed, Bowman and Pikeman are really just extra pieces to protect the Druid and Wizard, as well as great options to make flying units if you are full on bears for some reason (only 3 on the board at a time with Druid). The possessed is a great piece to sub in for a priest, costing 100 points less, but still gaining control of units she kills. Have her fly over and finish off a piece the bear tore into, and you control it, easy as that. Even if the opponent kills the possessed, you still gain a piece, as well as bring out the ghost piece from the possessed!
Alternative pieces are always an option, like a flying Archer instead of bowman- more expensive, but really powerful in picking off pieces all over the board. For 200 points, the Warrior as a flying unit might just be worth it. Zero commands to move, and gain commands for attacking! A great piece against the computer, as more units tent to pile up for him to attack all at once. Some added protection might be worth it to keep him alive, expensive, but one of these flying around the screen is disastrous is not stopped.
Try this army out with some co-op or 2vs 2 online play, maybe making some subs to help those scenarios, and see how your teammate appreciates being backed up by an army of flying bears. Just try and resist saying “bear with me while I attack the golem”
