An easy way start to get started in AOF:Skirmish Paper Based Warbands

Hey all,
I wanted to share my warbands that I created based on some Trash Mob Mini army packs (all available on DrivethroughRPG) for cheap. I used Geckos (Saurians), Orks and Goblin Minis.
I created three 270 point lists to give AOF:S a try.
Here are the lists

Have not actually played AOFS yet, drew up a Ghostly Undead list for anyone interested though!
Cool to see that the some AOFS units have shooting attacks in your lists @Imre. Wonder how the Ghostly Undead would fair.

First time using Markdown to do a table, also I would take Ghost Warriors (Chainrasps) over Scythed Ghosts, as I like the models more. However, 1 extra attack and Rending at the same points is a no brainer.

Unit Q D Equipment Special Rules Upgrades Cost
Ghost Wizard [1] 5+ 6+ Hand Weapon (A1) Ethereal, Hero, Strider, Tough(3), Undead, Wizard(1) - 60pts
Ghost Jailor [1] 4+ 6+ Heavy Chains (A3, AP(2)) Ethereal, Hero, Strider, Tough(3), Undead, Capture Souls C 50 +15 pts
Dread Knight [1] 4+ 6+ Hand Weapon (A2) Ethereal, Fast, Impact(2), Strider, Undead A 30pts

Here’s the current status: Night Gobbos and Saurians are cut out, now I need to blacken the edges and wait for the bases to arrive!

Since my bases arrived I was to knock out a quick test game using the quarantine (aka AI) rules. Worked out great and the Gobbos kicked the scaled a** of the saurians mainly because the dies were on their side. Also the cave beasts are a ton of fun boinging around the battlefield…

Had some fun today evening with a AOF:Skirmish game against my daughter. It was her first wargame ever and we had great fun. I lost quite horribly after failing a couple of morale tests at the end of round 3.

I need to revise my saurians list. They dish aut way to few attacks against a large number of wounds or individuals. So I’m trying to do a full on gecko force to fight numbers with numbers.
