1850 - Khorne Daemonkin + Knights - Rate my list
« on: March 31, 2017, 06:43:34 PM »
Please Read Below!

I'm not looking to make changes to the list. Period. That being said your opinion/thoughts on the list are needed as follows.

- Which army of the imperium do you play? or would play vs this list.
- Would you defeat this list on pure brute strength? mission objectives? both?
- Can you win with your most standard list against this? Would you need to tweak your list in order to counter mine?
- What would you find most challenging to deal with in this list, what are you most concerned about?
- Which Imperium list build or units would be of major concern against this list? (i.e. War Convocation, Grav Centurions, etc)
- If you had to list the "Cons" in my list what would they be? (i.e. No Anti-Air, No Anti-Armor, Lack of Mobility, etc etc)

   1 Maulerfiend, 140 pts (2x Lasher Tendrils)

: Forsworn Knight Detachment (2#, 870 pts)
   1 Forsworn Knight Detachment [RKn], 870 pts
      1 Renegade Knight [RKn] (Avenger Gatling Cannon; Avenger Gatling Cannon)
      1 Renegade Knight [RKn] (Avenger Gatling Cannon; Avenger Gatling Cannon)

Total Roster Cost: 1850

My Gameplan:

After several games running Daemonkin mostly speed oriented. For my 8th and final game dedicated to Khorne i want to try going ALL in from a distance and force the opponent to come to me rather than the usual run up the board and wither 1 round of shooting then assaulting turn 2 strategy that sees many of my units killed prematurely.

In this list the maulerfiend and bloodthristers are counter-assault. If 2 knights blasting away with dual avenger gatling cannons isn't enough for the opponent to bring the fight to me then I just don't know what is.

Knights in my back field their rear unassailable cultists in reserves to avoid giving up an easy first blood.
Bloodthristers in reserve swooping in or if facing an assault oriented army they'll deploy turn 1 and wait to counter assault whatever gets too close.
Maulerfiends can be deployed cover launching at anything that approaches midfield or to run and contest objectives. Alternatively they can guard the knight's rear.

I saw a drop pod list at a tournament recently that would ruin this list's day.

A guard horde would probably tar-pit and win on Obsec, but no one plays guard that way that I've ever seen.

A Gladius battle company might be pretty vulnerable to this, especially one based on razorbacks.

My current list? I'd use about 8 psychic shrieks to take out everything but the armor, focus my anti-armor on the mauler fiends first, and then plan on lasting 7 turns while holding objectives.

Sigh i'm prety sure i've seen like 1000 lists that would ruin your lists day too. But that's just not the point of the thread.

What are you running exactly and what tactical advantages do you have (weaknesses in my army) that would allow you to triumph. Let's start with that. Or u could just respond to the requested commentary in order that helps too. I'm not claiming to have an invincible list here sir, far from it i'm actively requesting for the flaws to be pointed out so that i may overcome them with tactics/strategy hopefully.
