[2000] Dark Angels - Robot Chicken
« on: December 23, 2017, 03:07:11 AM »
Theme: I wanted to run a Stygies VIII detachment that will be cheap and effective then pairing it up with Dark Angel units that would get the most mileage. I considered Ravenwing but then realized that the ravenwing bikes would all get shot off the table quickly as the opponent would avoid wasting shoots on Dragoons at a distance. Greenwing would not be suitable due to the lack of mobility and for the same reason of being focused fired on. This left me with a clear winner in Deathwing whom can completely stay off the board and strike exactly where most needed.

Stratagems on Deck:
Secret Agenda 1cp [Solid choice on Maelstrom missions]
Hunt the Fallen 1cp [Great for all Deathwing Terminators/Knights]
Deathwing Assault 3cp [Good choice for Deathwing Terminators, extra Dakka]
Fortress of Shields 1cp [Deathwing Knights can certainly use this]

Game Plan:
Start the game with only the Adeptus Mechanicus units which are -2 to hit making them very very resilient and then dropping in the Deathwing units aas a focused force to attack the enemy at their most vulnerable. The Dragoons can focus on claiming objectives and doing other stuff while keeping their distance, assaulting key targets and being a general nuisance while the Deathwing plunges directly into the enemy.
