    1750 Unique approach to Ig

    This is something new that I have been working on for the last few days. The list is actualy very competative due to the amount of barrage weapons, and the culexus is an incredible underused tool that can be very effective if used correctly. So here, I decided to make him work. He pretty much destroys the Ld of all units within 12" of him, thats when all the mortars and heavy mortars come in. The missile sentinel acts both as an anti tank and as a barrage unit since frag missile cause pinning. Griffons automaticaly force fal back moves with infernal shells which will hopefully keep some of the enemy infantry further away. Should be very deadly if played right, but only against certain opponents like Tau, Orks and other IG. Commentary is more than welcome...

    I like your Culexus idea for getting pinning to work but it's kind of a one-trick pony for 1850. All those mortars are crippling your antitank firepower Maybe dedicate one platoon to mortar fire and the other to antitank?

    Iron Discipline goes on the officer, not the infantry.

    I have to say that I don't really like the list. Nicely presented though.......:happy:

    As far as the using the Cullexus to work with his Souless rule, you have to remember that it only works within 12". If the enemy is within 12" of your lines, you are in a lot of trouble!!;?

    You really need a lot more anti-tank, and I would replace the Griffons with Bassies and replace the Demolisher with a Regular Russ. Your one Lascannon in the HQ (bad idea) will get targeted and pummelled right away.

    For a kit load out for an =][= I like a Deamonhunter =][= lord with Pyscannon, two Heavy Bolter Servitors, Plasma Cannon servitor, two Sages and a two Mystics. Your squad really needs a transport if you want to keep like it is.

    I would get another Veteran squad like you already have.

    Thats ... when you switch lists. hehe jk

    no, but culexus is death to psykers meaning the synapse creatures are gonners, especially in CC. Fearless or not makes no difference, the unit simply lowers its Ld to 7. So when culexus is in CC with a tyrant, he rolls his Ld10 vs tyrant's Ld7 to determine life drain damage.
    Regarding mortars, they would be probably become heavy bolters. While the griffons force auto fall back no matter what they fire at, so Ld values dont matter.
