Discussion: THE LIST / first try at 2000 pt necrons
« on: February 06, 2015, 12:41:42 PM »
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!

General Discussion / the old days of Armageddon and eye of terror
« on: January 12, 2015, 12:14:10 AM »
So this dates me a little but remember the old days of summer campaign fun of these two codex? If gw ever does another book like it what major theater of battle should they do? I think a universe vs bugs would be cool since they are the biggest threat to the rest of the universe. ( that is my opinion)

Happy gaming!

Discussion: THE LIST / 2000 pt Tempestus with Armoured battle group ally
« on: January 03, 2015, 02:48:50 PM »
After getting some really cool gifts for x-mas I have been reading and building lists like mad! ( im the 40k player who builds 10 plus lists then finally commits to building that army. I find the number crunching and brainstorming one of my favorite parts of the hobby.)

So here is a 2000 pt list. using the Tempestus as my primary detachment and the Armoured battle group a my ally. This list uses the air assault formation for the Tempestus.


Primary detachment- Tempestus - - 1260 pts

HQ

lord commissar with carapace armor,  bolt pistol, power fist

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

Allie detachment - armoured battle group -- 740 pts

HQ

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

Troops

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



So the idea is the tanks play the hunter role by laying down the hurt from afar. The air cav come in and take out what is left or what the tanks cant get do to being lumbering behemoths ( the imperial armour update did not change there rule, I hope they do it soon!)

this is just the first draft of the list. So PLEASE RIP IT APART!!!! If you have seen my 2000 pt IG v2.0 post you will see that I am ever set in stone on my lists. I have no problem in changing anything.

Thank you for all the advice! Keep it coming !

Discussion: Chaos Daemons / Flying circus VS Psy Phase Domination
« on: December 26, 2014, 11:58:14 AM »
So I picked up the Chaos Daemon Codex and was making up a theme army roughly in my head last night and I just wanted to post a question before I dive to deep in this train of thought. My idea was Tzeench Themed army. When I looked up tactics and a brief study of the codex I came up with two army ideas.

1) Flying circus idea ( Fateweaver, lord of change, 2 Daemon Prince, Pink horrors and maybe some screamers Detachment CSM Be'Lakor, The Dark Master  and 50 pts of cultist )
 
2) Dominate Psy Phase ( Fateweaver, 4 Heralds of Tzeench all lvl 3 Psy two on disks, 2-3 full Pink horrors squades , 2 full screamers Squades, Tzeench
Deamon prince.

I hope that is enough info for all you to tell me im on track or scream noob! Thanks for all the advice.

General Discussion / No longer carry "X "unit
« on: December 20, 2014, 08:34:19 PM »
I was about to order a few armored fist squads from GW online but they are OOP now. Now you can just make one with some guard and a chimera. My question is why does GW do stuff like that? I have noticed that they did the opposite with the last chancers. you can get the models but there is no current rules for them. The only reason I can think of them OOP the armored fist squad is to boost sales. Any body have any idea why GW does stuff like this?

Thank you for all the help.

Discussion: Conversions / IG/AM Hydra convertions
« on: December 17, 2014, 12:29:29 AM »
SO I have been looking at my hydras ( they are not put together yet) and I was thinking about seeing if I can convert them from being on a tank chassis( spelling?) to being on armored flat bed trunks. The only problem I have seen so far is I cant find any decent truck models in the 40k line up. making it a flat bed would be easy, adding the AA guns easy but the base model for truck? Maybe i just haven't seen the model but maybe I was wondering if I asked all you good people here at Warmasters if you got any ideas!?

Thank you for all the ideas that you come up with!

Discussion: THE LIST / 2000 pt IG V 2.0
« on: December 15, 2014, 11:17:15 PM »
ok after looking at my list and the advice i have gotten here is the second version of my list

company command
3 snipers
mast of ordence
officer of the fleet
medic
Creed
Kell --- I know what was said but I love the model

infantry platoon

platoon command
chimera
extra armor

infantry squad
auto cannon
chimera
extra armor

infantry squad
auto cannon
chimera
extra armor

50 conscripts
priest
psyker - divination

heavy weapon squads
3 las cannons

heavy weapon squads
3 las cannons

special weapon squad
3 melta

special weapon squad
3 melta

Vet squad
3 melta
chimera
extra armor

2 hydra batterys
camo nets

1 hell hound

1 Knight paladin. ( ally)


So on paper I would use the transports on the infanty squads for the special weapons. blob and imperial knight will march up mid. rest fill in the gaps.

model count : 118 infantry  7 tanks 1 imperial Knight


thank you again for the advice. keep it coming!

Discussion: THE LIST / 2000 pt IG
« on: December 13, 2014, 09:30:30 PM »
So this is my first attempt at  the new IG. ( I have been playing off and on for years)



HQ
command comany with creed, kell , a medic, 2 meltas, navy officer and a ordenice ( sp?)officer

Troop

Infantry platoon
infantry platoon command with flamer, chimera with dozer and extra armor

infanrty squad with flamer and chimera with dozer and extra armor

infanrty squad with flamer and chimera with dozer and extra armor

50 conscripts with a preist amd a primaris psyker with divination

heavy weapon squad with 3 auto cannons

heavy weapon squad with 3 las cannons

heavy weapon squad with 3 las cannons

Vet Squad with grenaiders and 3 meltas with a chimera dozer and extra armor

Fast

2 Hellhounds with dozer and extra armor

Heavy support

2 Hydra batterys with camo nets

2 leman russ battle tanks with heavy bolters , dozers and extra armor.

Know I feel that list is missig more anti armor but I maybe wrong.
the idea is 50 man blob moves to center table with cover from the heavy weapons teams and creeds command squad. with mech infantry and battle tanks and hell hounds doing what they do best. what do you think.

FYI , I really like the 50 man consripts with preist and psyker. fearless, hatred  and rerolls shooting attacks. also over watch with this squad should be fun. 

Thanks for the advice.

Discussion: Astra Militarum / conscripts and commisar
« on: December 09, 2014, 04:53:37 PM »
So I was thinking or running a 50 man conscript blob plus a commisar. That way you can have a metric ton of dice with first rank second rank. Also a ton of shots for over watch. Plus a huge moblie 5+ cover for infantryman behind them. Not bad for only 175 points I think.
