View Full Version : Toying around with a Zoraida list idea
04-10-2010, 06:56 PM
I don't play with her and don't plan to for a while but this caught my attention when I was flipping through the rulebook yesterday.
30 ss (5 ss cache)
Papa Loco 6 (or doppelganger or w/e)
Nurses shoot up papa and ronin with stimulant.
Zoraida proceeds to obey them the jacked out ronin/papa.
Then Bad things happen.
Ronin with 6wk/8cg, cb 9 and +2 flips sounds yummy. Don't forget your melee expert and you have obeys coming your way. It would be nice if seppuku would work with massive dose, but I doubt it.
So do guys think its viable, or is this malinoob just short-sighted?

I see two problems;
1. You still need to pay +1SS for hiring Papa Loco, since he's an out-of-faction model.
2. You seem to be paying an awful lot for a trio of one-shot missles. Ressurectionists can do it because they have cheap and summonable fodder, but the best Zoraida can do are Terror Tots. If you want to give this approach a shot, try it with one nurse (2 might be overkill) and terror tots.
I don't know whether this approach would work, but there's only one way to find out. ;)

That would mean I would have to pay +1ss for the nurses too. So maybe I would look more like this. Hmmm.
Zoraida+Voodoo (6 ss cache)
papa loco 7
Hmm but if thats the case why not?
Zoraida+Voodo (7ss cache)
pap Loco 7
Nurses just seem to good to pass up especially with the potential damage that your minions can put out.

Nurses are good. They're just too expensive to take more than one per game and it's questonable if you'd really need more than that. They really don't need to get in combat. Often it's also not worth it to pump expensive models full unless you can be sure to wreak extreme amounts of havoc.
You could of course get a Warpig with reactivate and nice Cb bonuses on the opponents side of the table in brawl (Som'er+Zoraida) if you wanted to. Just lure him forward with Soueys by skeeters and it might get funny. Six 12" Pigcharges with Cb8 Dg3/5/7 :+fate:+fate on damage should do something. Then do it again with Piglets and Terror Tots.
