So later today I'm going to have a game against, Eldar and Dual Lash CSM (but I'm not worried about the CSM). This game is for league which we all paid to play and dthe top players win the money so I'd like to win, if not table the poor guy (you get extra points if you table your opponent). His list includes Prince Iyaden, wraithguard, a wraith lord, Fire Dragons in a wave serpent, 2X10 man ranger pathfinders, a regular farseer, and 2XD-cannons. Here's what I'm bringing...
Njal - to counter his psychic powers (but can switch for 2 rune priests)
Ragnar - hasn't died in a game yet and has just been causing havoc for my opponents, I felt obligated to use him.
10 Wolf Guard
4 power weapons
2 power fists
2X 8 blood claws
- Melta gun
10 grey hunters
5 Swift claw bikers
-Flamer (just put them in to be a distraction and to go after his path finders, they don't get cover from a flamer) If you disapprove a Dreadnaught will come in to replace tham.
Ragnar has terminator armour so he won't be able to get into a rhino. He will be vulnerable on his own.
Quorn! - Protein for the Protein God.
if your having rangar, give him a land radier redeemer for anti-horde because that's what your lacking and make the bc squad in their with him bigger. plus you lack anti-tank at long range. how about podding in a draednought with smoke to make your opponenent panick for a turn or two? because the eldar will just kill your rhinos and dance around you making you unable to catch up with them. razorbacks with lascannon and plasma and grey hunter 5 man plasma squad are good for this cover fire and objective sitting unit, which you currently lack.
Logan's in Terminator armour, ragnar just has a 3+, Njal is the one who's going to be on his own because he is in terminator armour.
I really want to DP something in (lol) but when I sold my Iron hands all my LR's and DP's went with them. Because like you mentioned antique the last time I played him his D-cannon and fire dragons tore my Rhinos apart. Then Iyadens big boom killed 10 blood claws. Especially since I'd prefer to throw terminators at Iyaden so I'd still get my save.
I'm hoping to get the same "distraction" effect that a Dp would produce by throwing the 5 bikes directly into him and taking the support weapons out with living lightning because it has unlimited range and is str. 7.
Oh well though I guess we'll see how it goes.
hmm ok, but bikers are easy to kill by fire prisms. turbo boosting cover saves or not and podding in a dread is very fun ^^. i feel like kid going fuummmmmmm ( while hodling a plane ) when i hold a pod and put it onto the table. sad i know, but the hobby brings out the child in you . lol
good luck in your game and it's nice to see that this hobby isn't as all one sex as i think it is.
assuming you are female
I won, actually dropped the bikes and went for another priest. Didn't table him like I'd have liked to (Just to get full points, not cause I'm a bad sport). Just couldn;t get his path finders, but that was all he had left on the table at the end.
A friend actually showed up and lent me his drop pod so I drop podded the grey hunters in and took out his D-cannon (my worst enemy, and anti-rhino). Njal was with them and jawsed the wraithlord into a chasm before it could charge them (awesome!) Ragnar took the seer council and dark reapers, A wolf guard leading blood claws power fisted Iyaden in the face, and the fire dragons ran only to get caught by what was left of the blood claws.
A good game if I may say so myself. But getting a drop pod was lucky in my opinion if I may say so myself.
