Looking to Start an Ad Mech Army
« on: September 28, 2017, 09:51:08 AM »
Greetings followers of the Machine God! I have been looking into starting up an Ad Mech army since last edition, but have never been able to commit to doing so. However, with the new codex having recently dropped my desire seems to have been renewed. I have been toying around w/ the idea of running a pure Mars Brigade force (since that allows me to field Cawl) as well as the nice 12 total re-rolls, but I am uncertain if the list I've come up with would be a viable one. Here is what I was thinking:

Mars Brigade (+9CP)

HQ
Cawl - Warlord
Enginseer - Autocaduceus of Arkhan Land; O. Axe; Servo-Arm
Enginseer - O. Axe; Servo-Arm

Troops
2 Rangers + 2 Rangers w/ Arquebii + 1 Ranger Alpha w/ Omnispex
2 Rangers + 2 Rangers w/ Arquebii + 1 Ranger Alpha w/ Omnispex
5 Vanguard + 1 Vanguard Alpha w/ Taser Goad + Omnispex
5 Vanguard + 1 Vanguard Alpha w/ Taser Goad + Omnispex
5 Vanguard + 1 Vanguard Alpha w/ Taser Goad + Omnispex
5 Vanguard + 1 Vanguard Alpha w/ Taser Goad + Omnispex


Elites
Cybernetica Datasmith - Gamma pistol; power fist
4 Infiltrators (Flechette blasters + taser goads) + Infiltrator Princeps ( F. blaster + T. goad)
4 Infiltrators (Flechette blasters + taser goads) + Infiltrator Princeps ( F. blaster + T. goad)


Fast Attack
Sydonian Dragoon (Taser lance)
Sydonian Dragoon (Taser lance)
2 Sydonian Dragoons (Taser lances)

Heavy Support
3 Kastelan Robots ( Heavy phosphor on all hard points)
Dunecrawler - Icarus Array; Cognis stubber; Data-tether
Dunecrawler - Icarus Array; Cognis stubber; Data-tether

This tags the list at exactly 2000 points and 122PL, which seems decent on paper, but again I'm not an Ad Mech player and am not super certain about how viable/competitive this list might be with hordes running roughshod, so if anyone has any input it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys, Sindri

Neutron Lasers on the Onagers are beastly - I'd take at least one Neutron and one Icarus.
I run two Neutrons, an Icarus and four Kastlens with Cawl in the middle for rerolls

Dont forget that engineseers are now HQ choices so they will save quite a few points and allow us to capitalise on more CP. Also fulgurite infiltrating is a thing now :D.
