hi, new here, so I wondered if I could get any opinions on my armylist. i've been playing 40k for a few years now and have decided to upgrade to a 1000 pt army, after mixed results at 500 pt friendly games.
2 Obliterators 140
To complete the army I was wondering whether to opt for Lieutenant with bikers or Lieutenant with raptors, like this:
Lightning Claw 120
5 CSM Bikers
Skilled Riders 185
P Lightning Claws
D Res 125
6 Raptors 180
I would want an undivided force but got stuck on the whether to get Raptors or bikes, or none at all
All Comments much apreciated
On your very first squad, I'd probably shrink the squad down to 6. Even numbers are better regarding victory points. You might also consider changing the Heavy Bolter to another Plasma Gun, but keeping the weapons the same as they are now isn't too much of a problem.
As for bikers vs. raptors, It's really up to you. In the bike squad I'd upgrade to Lightning Claws. Both are really expensive, and I wouldn't exactly reccomend either of them in 1000 point games, but if you use them safely they can work well. Either way, I'd try to get some special weapons on them.
Point taken abot the 6 man squads.
I wanted the bikes/raptors to be a counter attack unit with the lieutenant, then i was thinking daemons, possibly furies, bloodletters or daemonettes to counter enemy or respond to enemy assaults. If daemons, what should i do with the lieutenant?
Maybe a fast, cheap assault unit that could summon and support the daemons? You could give him d. speed and infiltrate, or maybe a bike. Equip him for close combat, and have him summon the daemons.
That's probably what I would do.
k, With the bikes and raptors, get 4 bikes with 2 melta guns, then turbo boost, giving you a 3+ invun. and next turn turn those tanks into scrap metal from the rear. As to the luetenant im not sure, but probably supporting the bikes and taking out hevy weapons in combat. that should keep your tanks alive for longer. ditch the D. aura on the leutenant as when they turbo, they get 3+ invun. anyway. any way, test it out, then make changes as you see fit. good luck!
Thanks for the suggestions. I've decided to go with the Biker squad, and have a strong anti static unit squad. So here is the revised list:
Dark Blade (calculated wounding,better chance than LC)
Spikey Bitz 125
2 Obliterators 140
Missile Launcher 85
4 CSM Bikers
Skilled Riders 168
Daemonic Possession 130
What to do with the remaining 11 pts thats worthwhile?
11 points hmmm. well for starters frag on the lieutenant, then with the other ten points possibly spikey bits for the lieutenant, blasphemious rune for the drednought (stops hordse holding your dready in combat) or a plasma gun slipped into one of those 5 man squads. Your list is looking really good, and i hope it serves well in the war against the false emperor!
Thanks, Blasphemous Rune it is.
Can't put Frags on the Lieutenant, i've spent his max wargear limit.
I'll test it, and see how itgets on.
Thanks for all your suggestions.
