    1500pt Word Bearer - "Fast"

    This is just a quick write-up of an imaginary army.. I've got must of the models, and if anyone would or could come with some reasonable explaination for why I should buy a certain model, then by all means talk me... I know there isn't any LashyPrince in the list, but I'll testplay one in the next game, to hopefully gain the same enthusiasm...

    But every the less. The List!...

    I like to see more CSMs in this list - Lesser Daemons are nice for numbers, but they just won't stand up to dedicated fire like our Marines will. I'd drop a squad of the daemons and consolidate the two Raptor squads into one 8 man squad with Meltas. Love the Defilers, I run a pair myself and they always scare the bejesus out of my friends in addition to blowing nice holes in their armies.

    Generally agree with the Moose... What I would look at is dropping the daemons to 8 man squads, consolidating the raptors to one 8 man squad, then grabbing champs with fists for the normal marines. At the moment you are really relying on your defilers to dig you out of comabt with anything big and scary and that is not something you can rely on.

    Your marines squads lack some close combat punch against the big stuff. Monsterous creatures will cause you no end of pain.

    I'd like to see some powerfists on the marines. I'd consider dropping one squad of daemons and bumping the others up to 10.

    I'd definitely increase the Lords raptor retinue, I know I would target them first and you only have 5 ablative wounds till I start shooting him with horrible instant-kill weapons.

    The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.

    Made some smaller changes to the list. Added fist champs to the marines, and downed the deamon units a bit, along with some editing to the lord. Not quite sure how I'd like to remove one of the raptor squads.. The whole idea of having a One-Hit-Wonder unit ust kinda thrills me.. I'll testplay the dual squads, and the 8man Lord Retinue.. Would it be of any use to swap the fists for meltabombs instead and save the 20pts per fist?

    Would it be of any use to drop a single deamon to upgrade both rhinos with combi-weapons?

    No major issues. You could dump the bolters on the rhinos for another daemon, the rhinos already have one and rhinos are best kept cheap. You also may want to combine the raptors and drop the flamers, since neither squad has IoCG the bigger squad will help minimize morale checks from shooting.
    Couple of things to think about, looks very solid

    As Gunney pointed out, combining the two Raptor squads would be a good idea, i'd also then consider dropping two raptors in it to afford an aspiring champion with powerfist. You can then drop the personal icon from the lord (As his squad will have an icon), and the twin linked bolters on the rhinos for that 24th daemon.
    Othr than that, a great list. Lovely to see some lesser daemons being used.
