Hey guys and girls.
Im going to GW manchester on tuesday for a doubles 500 pts tourney, allies will be picked when there so no idea who ill be with. We have to have at least one troop choice, and then its completely normal selection.
So far my planned list consists of a full power fisted tac squad, 2 multi melta dreadnoughts, and a 3 man scout bike squadron with a power fist.
Do you think this will work?
Could you suggest better lists (i have available almost every unit from the sm codex, minus bike sqauads, termy assault squads and a whilwind)
Any advice on small point games?
Thanks in advance, Gordy
I would say, instead of the bikers (they won't have any staying power) take 5 scouts with 4 snipers and 1 missile, or 2 attack bikes with heavy bolters. I'm assuming missile/flamer on the tac squad, as they are free?
yes to the free missile and flamer.
your right about the scouts, just thought i could use the cheap speed, last min objective contesters etc, maybe another scout unit might be better though, guess you're right.
It has always been my opinion that if the enemy is dead, they can't hold objectives.
How about a Tactical Squad and a Land Raider? It won't win you many friends, but it will do plenty of damage.
A lascannon still has a minimal chance of knocking a LR out, and most people don't build lists to deal with such a monstrous vehicle. Assault Squads are nice, but they don't have AV14
10 Tacticals, missile and flamer = 170
2 HB Attack Bikes = 80
Land Raider = 250
Haha, but at least after the game he can shake his opponents hand without them giving him the greasy's, lol, how about...
Scout squad 75pts
1x Seargent w/ BP and CCW and melta bombs
Land Raider 330pts?
Mulit Melta, Commander Chrono's
LOL LOL. Winning list!
Meh, Chronus isn't all that great. However, a big unit of scouts with Telion could work well. Sit in cover with camo cloaks while the Raid (Redeemer?) runs up and roasts things.
I think the idea of a a handlful of Scouts advancing behind a crazy Land Raider is an awesome idea. The machine spirit is out of whack so some Scouts were sent to track its movements while the Techmarines prepared to calm it down.
As ==Me== already stated, it is totally Brutal
Now, in case you don't have neither a LRC or LR, there are a lot of other good options, including a Dreadnaught (with or without Drop Pod), Predator with HB sponsors, sternguards with Razorback (these guys are +++ BRUTAL +++ with Hellfire rounds wounding on 2+), etc...
