So next weekend I have a tourney that I am going to and here's what I have planned:
HQ: Lord, Bike, Mark of Nurgle, Icon, Power Weapon
Elites: 6x Terminators - 3 Combi-plasmas, 2 Fists, 2 Dual Lightning Claws, Icon of Khorne
Dreadnought w/ Plasma Cannon OR 2CCW and Heavy Flamer (can't decide!)
Troops: 10x Plague Marines, 2 Plasmas, PC w/ Fist, Rhino, Icon
10x Plague Marines, 2 Meltas, PC w/ Fist, Rhino
Heavy: 2x Obliterator OR Defiler w/ 2CCW
Trying to make a general army that can take on a bunch of different army types. I am a little concerned with the lack of anti-tank stuff, but not too much.
I would try to find some points to give your Lord Lightning claws instead of the power weapon.
I'd take the defiler to increase your vehicle count.
I am not sure about the weapon choice on the dread though. Maybe go with the plasma to give yourself a little more long-range firepower to support your troops.
Either way, your list looks good, but will probably hurt if you go up against a vehicle heavy list.
I toyed with having a Lord w/ Claws and Khorne Icon but he wouldn't be on the Bike so he would have to roam around in a Rhino. I like the Defiler to and your point about vehicles is noted. I'll be able to play a few test games later this week and I'll try out a couple variations. The guys I play with have a good variety of armies that I'll be able to test against.
Any suggestions with the current list (tactical ideas) against a vehicle heavy list?
the best way to up your effectiveness versus vehicles is to take the oblits and not the defiler. Also, i would drop the LCs from your terminators, and take combi melta instead, just again for vehicles. with spare points you can upgrade your powerfists to chainfists.
Your lord seems liek hell be killed. Is he there just to run up and DS your termies? you should chance it without him and take him off the bike/ add him in a rhino.
Or you can upgrade him to a daemon prince and let him run side by side with your 2 CCW dred. That way if you keep your defiler youll have 3 big nasties drawing fire away from your other units.
Still i feel the oblits, the plasma dred (maybe ML as well), and some changes to your terms are your best ways of taking out vehicles.
