General Discussion / Re: I'll write your list
« on: February 13, 2015, 01:08:30 AM »
Ok so I too love to build lists. I would like to see your take on and idea. The idea is a 2000 pt list with a high and I mean high model count. It could be assaulty or gun line or both. No vehicles. And it doesn't matter what army as long as it's over 120 model count. I have a list already made so when your done and post it I will post mine and see how we tackle the same idea.

I am currently building an armored battle group and Tempestus army. The list has evolved in to many different list. where the Tempestus Where the main detachment. To now The armoured battle group (a FW list of IG tanks) is the primary detachment. How ever the primary detachment is only about 750 pts ( 2 vanquisher as HQ and 2 leman russ as my two troops) The rest is dumbed in a Tempestus Air Assault Formation(  1 commissar, 1 command squad , 3 x 10 man scion squads and four Valkyries) .

Its funny that you mention Michael Bay. I made this list with story in my head, a scene from a movie if you will. Four tanks are on a patrol/scout mission and run into the advancing vanguard of an enemy force. The commanding officer of the tank group radio in their rapid response team. The out number tank group just have to survive till the cavalry arrives. Being a former air cav member of the US army I guess I am a little biased on this idea.

I was planning on building an IG army. ( there will always be imperial guard to me) As I was building list after list ( list building to me is one of the funnest part to me) I picked up the Tempetus dataslate. ( they will always be Stormtroopers in my eyes) I really liked the models and the idea of an " elite normal joe human " army. then I read the Air Assault formation. There it was an idea/army list that I can relate to. But what to add to it? More Stormtroops? ,No had my platoon of them in flyers already.... what is there mission? Hit and Run? Na rules dont really read that to me. Rescue mission? Now we are getting some where.

So I was looking at all kinds of different ideas of allies and detachments. In the end it is 4 IG tanks that need help.

OK ..... so other than losing turn one on every game due to having nothing on it ....lol

I read up on the formations and thought up this idea


MEPHRIT DYNASTY COHORT Formation. Primary detachment.
HQ

Illuminor

Orikan

Troops

10 man warriors

10 man warriors

10 man warriors

10 man warriors

10 man warriors

Formations

Deathbringer flight
2 doom scythe

living tomb
obelisk
2 monolith



So plan is to start with 50 warriors and 2 HQ on the board. drop the obelisk 2nd turn in middle of table. switch tactic with Zahndrekh to be able to reroll reserves. "flash" ( league of legends term there) warriors with a monolith. Use the huge bubble of the rules from the Living tomb formation rules to land the monolith where I want it. doom scythe's #1 targets would be enemy flyers. #2 target av 14. 3 turn switch to reroll to hit tactic. move monoliths and obelisk and"flash" more warriors. hopefully by now orikan is powered on. 

Also this list sits at 1940

Thoughts? Comments? And as always thank you for the advice! Keep it coming!

Discussion: THE LIST / first try at 2000 pt necrons

Hello everyone

I've been busy building/painting my imperial armour/ Tempestus list. How ever I just got the new cons codex and couldn't help it and I had to build a list. ( as some of you may know I love building lists and find that to be one of my favorite parts of the hobby). I am still confused with the new necrons force org/ formation options. So I didn't make this list with those in mind. So if you see that I could benefit from one of those options please let me know and maybe explain the way to use them. On here we go!

HQ
Illuminor

Orikan

TROOP

14 warriors with a night scythe

14 warriors with a night scythe

15 warriors with a night scythe

15 warriors with a night scythe

HEAVY

Doom scythe

Doom scythe

Doom scythe


So there is the list.  Yes the hq each go in each of the 14 warrior squads. I know it seems a lot like my other list for Tempestus I made but hey I was air cav in the US army so old habits die hard. This list is just short of 2000 pt. As it sits it's 1984 pts.

Thank you for all the advice !! Keep it coming!

I would take them the same. Like three demolishers or three battle tanks. Also I have not played them my self but from what I have seen 3 hell hounds are very nice too. If there are flyers in your local meta then hydras with camo nets are a must.

If I then add a psyker I can make that squad twin linked. ( I might me off in my math but here is what I came up with) 150 shots at bs 2 is about 50 shots hitting. with twin linked you reroll the other 100 and get 33 more hits. so a total of 83 hits. Out of 83 hits about 13 wound. On a 3+ save you take around 4 wounds. like I said I might be off on my math but I think that equals one dead hive tyrant. kinda cool when I think about it.

Hello and welcome!

I am starting AM ( kinda ... long story) but I can give you the advice and what I have seen be affective.

Punishers really shine with Pask at the helm.( HQ)
Vanquishers are great but need a bs 4 to be really effective so take those as command tanks ( HQ) 
The good old battle tank. What can I say... S8 AP3 large blast! A Great Tank!

Hope that helps some!

« on: January 19, 2015, 12:59:36 AM »
I use the armoured battle company from imperial armour 1 2nd ed. From what I have seen the group welcomes it. I feel as long as you are honest about what you are using and let them know that you will be taking some forgeworld rules/models they should be ok with it( like no super heavy's in a game under 2500, ect) . I see it as breath of fresh air due to the fact few people use it and  its a break from the "codex" rules. I think they are fun and should be played with that in mind. Now for tournaments its up to who ever is running it.

So I have been playing around with the list and here is another option I have come up with using all your advice.

CAD - armoured battle group -- 800 pts

HQ

company command tank
vanquisher
co axial heavy stubber
beast hunter shells
dozer blades
heavy bolter sponsons

company command tank
vanquisher
co axial heavy stubber
beast hunter shells
dozer blades
heavy bolter sponsons

Troops

1 leman russ battle tanks
--dozer blades
-- heavy bolter sponsons

1 leman russ battle tanks
--dozer blades
-- heavy bolter sponsons

Formation detachment- Tempestus - - 1195  pts Air assault formation

HQ

commissar with power fist and bolt pistol

Tempestus command squad
tempestor prime with Power sword and bolt pistol
vox- caster
medic pack
2 plasma guns

Troops

10 man Tempestus scion squad
vox castor
2 melta guns

10 man Tempestus scion squad
vox castor
2 melta guns

10 man Tempestus scion squad
vox castor
2 flamers

Fast attack

2 valkyrie with heavy bolter side sponsons

2 valkyrie with heavy bolter side sponsons

What I did is make the Armour battle company the CAD, dropped one leman russ for another Command tank. Also I made the commissar a normal commissar instead of a lord commissar to make up the point costs. What do you guys think?

Thanks for all the advice! Keep it coming!
