    1500 Reformed IW army (first with new dex)

    Okay, first army list with the new book. I'm trying to use models I already have for the army, and the only things I will have to proxy with this are the termies, 1 defiler, and a rhino, so not bad.

    Daemon prince
    Wings, MoT, Warp Time
    175

    3 terminators
    2 combi plasma and a heavy flamer
    105

    10 marines
    2 melta guns, AC with fist, rhino + extra armor
    260

    10 marines
    2 melta guns, AC with fist, rhino + extra armor
    260

    10 marines
    2 melta guns, AC with fist, rhino + extra armor
    260

    2 Oblits
    150

    Defiler
    max DCCW
    150
    Defiler
    max DCCW
    150

    =1500

    Pretty simple strategy. I have an excessive amount of armored or otherwise hard targets, so I can normally rhino shield my way up to the opponent easily with my mobility. If they turtle up I can deepstrike my oblits and termis to help soften them, i wont footslog them unless I outgun my opponent. If I can outgun the opponent I can block lanes with empty rhinos and turtle up myself.

    Thoughts?

    The melta squads shouldn't equal 260 points-I can't see the error, but you should re-work the numbers.

    Other than that, it should work well, but a pair of Preds would be better than the Defilers IMO, except for fluff reasons.
    Asking for suggestions without knowing what you're planning on doing is like asking a blind man what color shirt matches your eyes.

    Melta squads were correct, although I think this may work better. Dropped the extra armor and one of the squads. Exchanged it for IoK on the squads and a squad of raptors. They should be able to stick with the prince and follow the armor. Also it will clean up the battlefield a little for me so my defilers/oblits will have clear lanes of fire and my troop squads have more bite.

    Has long range threats, anti tank, and should be able to handle hordes

    Only drawback is that I dont have raptors thoughts?

    My first thought would be to drop one of the raptors to get the squad 2x meltas.

    Second, I am not a fan of oblits in the new dex. I would love to see an AT pred in their place. Heck, if you make the change then you would not even have to drop the raptor for the above suggestion.

    Heeh, my only reason for going oblits is that I already have them, you are right that a predator is a better maximised build.

    Yeah, I feel bad for all of the players that spent a ton of money on oblits and havocs only to have them now be the less "tactically sound" option.
