Tournament tomorrow, Castellans detchment plus, 1850 ITC
« on: February 17, 2017, 10:04:15 PM »
The castellan detachment was more or less made for my style of army building, so here we go, tomorrow's tournament list.

1) Can people double check that this is legal?

2) I've been facing a lot of Tau, and am simply trying to outlast the 6-riptide lists.

3) I think I have enough firepower and mobility to vex other armies. I'm afraid of heavy armor, say 6 knights, or the wrong super-heavy. I feel like I'm always a bit light on anti-tank material. Is it glaring?

CAD:
Khan on moondrakkan
bike squad, meltagun
bike squad, grav gun
quad gun battery (experimental rules)
quad gun battery (experimental rules)

Inquisitorial Representative detachment:
Xenos inquisitor, rad & pyschotroke grenades

Castellans of the imperium detachment:
Ministorum priest, meltabombs (they can take meltabombs in the sisters of battle dexes, right?)
Ministorum priest, meltabombs
Techmarine, hunter's eye, bike
Scout squad, meltabombs, land speeder, storm
Scout squad, combi-melta, land speeder storm, multimelta
Bike squad, 2 meltaguns
Bike squad, grav gun
Infantry platoon:
  Platoon command squad, autocannon
  Infantry squad, meltagun
  Infantry squad, meltagun
  Sabre Weapons battery, twin linked lascannon
  Conscripts (48)
  Inquisitorial henchman warband, 2 acolytes, meltagun, 1 psyker, rhino
  Inquisitorial henchman warband, 2 acolytes, meltagun, 1 psyker, rhino
  Inquisitorial henchman warband, 2 acolytes, meltagun, 1 psyker, rhino
  Inquisitorial henchman warband, 2 acolytes, 1 psyker, razorback
Attack bike, multimelta
Wyvern
Wyvern


Basically:
4 bike squads and 1 attack bike with special weapons,
2 blobs led by space marine characters with ministorum priests that scout and then rush the foe
4 rhino equivalents with psykers and/or meltaguns inside rushing up the board
2 scout squads in land speeder storms
5 cheap artillery units

You need Coteaz in your Castellan's detachment. He would make all non-vehicles in the Castellan Objective Secured

Hillshire, you're right. I've been thinking about what Coteaz brings. Among other things, I noticed a ridiculous combination. If I pick the right units in the right detachments, I can finagle a 60% probability of pulling off a turn 1 assault with a massive guardsman blob led by marine characters before my opponent gets his first turn, in a tournament-legal list.

A good, hard counter to much of what's out there these days, like Magnus or Tau. Too bad it requires a thing or two I don't have any interest in ever bringing to the table. My list as I'm building it only has a 23% chance (or even a bit less!) of making it happen. Still, that's almost once per 3 game tournament...

Battle reports here: http://thewarmaster.com/index.php?topic=7739.0

New edition of this list to follow. I enjoy running this, but I'm making some changes. Some to speed up play time (like removing Khan and half the conscripts), some to make it more competitive.
