Welcome to Librarium Online!
Theres a doubles tournament tomorrow that me and my buddy are attending, where each person is to have a 1000pts legal list (1HQ, 2 Troops). Together, the 2000pts must also be legal under the FoC. Heres what were bringing
My Force - Salamanders
10 Man Tactical - Flamer, MM, PF, CM
5 Scouts - Bolters, HB, CC, Telion
5 Assault Terminators
Land Raider Redeemer
His Force - Imperial Fist
10 man tactical - Meltagun, Lascannon, PF, Razorback
5 Scouts - Snipers, CC
5 Terminators - Cyclone
We tested this last night and we won our game against two 1000pts forces of Knorne and Nugle, but we noticed some extreme lack of mobility. My LRR was imobolized pretty close to deployment and stopped vulkan from doing dmg. His razorback brought guys accross, but they got mopped by a demolisher cannon shot. I made a second list for myself, and was wondering if it would be better
10 Man Tactical - Flamer, MM, PW, CM
10 Man Tactical - Flamer, RL, PF, CM, Razorback
Dreadnought - TLLC
Vindicator - DB
What do you guys think. I'll let everyone know how it went.
just by chance is this the gamers haven doubles tourny?
1750 Ash Wolves (Ex-Traitor Marines) W/L/D 9/0/1
1750 Bad Moons (Orks) W/L/D 15/3/2
I would question the deployment of terminators in a 1000 point game, it's a lot of points for very few bodies and relatively little firepower for their cost. If you are looking for close combat ability taking a squad of assault marines without the jump packs would maximize bodies per point. Assault squads can take flamers that will benefit from your HQ and help you soften up hordes. The basic dreadnought is going to take a while to cover the board, it might pay to remove it and add a couple of transports. I recommend rhinos. whis will give you ~30 marines and some heavy support / bullet sinks. Nothing in my experience attracts fire like a vindicator, except maybe a land raider, leman russ, or monolith.
I LOVE the smell of promethium in the morning!
Well, i ended up using the second of my two lists, my buddy used the one posted. We came second!
lost to a Nurgle army, 1000 pts of Daemons with Epidimus or whatever, and 1000 points of Plaguemarines with demon prince. all i want to say is HOLY! DO NOT LET THE NURGLE KILL 15 guys, as Epidimus is ridiculous in what he offers his nurgle followers.
We also won best sportsmanship, so it was a good overall day.
