So, I've been talking a bit in the forums about rules and strategies (because I'm good with rules and strategies), but I haven't actually fought a game in 5th edition yet...until today!!!
I met vanilla marines with this 1750pt list:
DP, wings, wind, wt, MoT
Lord, MoK, lightning claw, plasma pistol
1k sons x9, icon, doombolt, rhino, combimelta
Berzerkers x8, champ, fist, icon, rhino, combimelta
CSM x10, 2x melta, champ, fist, IoCG, rhino, havoc launcher
5x lesser daemons
a strange list because I didn't have my terminators or defiler built and ready...
(memory fails me even though it was today!)
a bunch of ranged termies with 2 missile launchers and a librarian special dude!
a bunch of cc termies with LC/TH+SH
two squads of 10, melta+ML+rhino
2x2 assault bikes multimelta
2x predators, dakka...
This was the guy's tournament list and...
...I wiped the floor with them!!!
Main points of the battle was the DP that wiped the cc termies with wind of chaos and two turns of cc and the berzerkers + lord charging his ranged termies and totally devastated them!
His ranged termies was focused on my oblits the entire game(until they were destroyed) and nuked 5/6 wounds in the unit...a great distraction unit until I could get my berzerkers into range of the charge!
His assault bikes were brought down of the combined effort of my 2x melta in one of the CSM squads and my 1k sons firing away on them...and my daemons charing the last remaining one...
All in all my melta guns failed miserably to take down any armour whatsoever, just the bikes, but my 2nd squad of CSMs slaughered both his predators with the fist!!!
