    Fun with Rending [2500]

    Hi all, Im fairly new to these boards. Been lurking awhile and decided to share a fun army idea I had. So Ive found by playing Nids I really enjoy rending attacks. Ive done the whole cc thing with my main army and for a change of pace Ive been brainstorming up possible SM lists. Keep in mind this list is intended to be fun more than serious, I have a nice Nid collection going for that already

    Without further ado:

    Hail of Fire
    2500 points
    Heed the wisdom of the ancients

    HQ
    -Epistolary w/ Fury, Artificer armor
    -4 man Terminator Command squad w/ 2 Assault Cannons
    -Drop Pod

    Elites
    -5 man Terminator Squad w/ 2 Assault Cannons, Drop Pod
    -5 man Terminator Squad w/ 2 Assault Cannons, Drop Pod
    -5 man Terminator Squad w/ 2 Assault Cannons, Drop Pod

    Troops
    -5 man Tactical Squad w/ 1 LasCannon
    -5 man Tactical Squad w/ 1 LasCannon

    Fast Attack
    -3 Land Speeders w/ Assault Cannons
    -3 Land Speeders w/ Assault Cannons
    -3 Land Speeders w/ Assault Cannons

    Heavy Support
    -Venerable Dread w/ Drop Pod
    -Dread w/ Drop Pod
    -Dread w/ Drop Pod

    Thats 80 shots with Assault Cannons!
    42 Storm Bolter shots
    27 Heavy bolter shots
    8 - 16 Bolter shots
    2 Las Cannon shots
    and a partridge in a pear tree

    I doubt this will do well in a tournament, but I love it
    I'm a huge fan of rending things myself, so I think I might just give this list a try

    not the most tactically sound list, but that would be a blast to play with.

    Yes, very fun indeed.

    But as for rending....

    Look in chaoter approved 2004 and find the cursed foundings. The black dragons allow your abominations and assault squads to have rending.

    A 10 man squad of black dragon abominations would only cost 220pts and would get 40 Rending Attacks charging! Just imagine if they were joined by a priest and then charged!

    In addition, for every 6 they roll to hit, u get an extra attack. so if u rolled a total of 9 rendings (6's) u would get an additional 9 attacks! then if on this set of 9 u rolled lets say 2 6's, u would get 2 more attacks etc!

    Then their assault squads may take this as well but they dont get the extra attack on 6's, cost a lot of points, and dont get as many attacks in general!

    BTW, in case u didnt know, abominations are only available for a cursed ofunding army

    I think that librarian should have terminator armour, for 5 points, you pick up an +5 invunerable save, an extra attack, and uh, well since you didnt give him a bolt pistol, unless you did, but did not mention it, you would not be scoficing anything. Peace.

    Yeah give the Lib some Termi armour or he will look like a dork in his suit of puny power armour amidst all those hulking Terminators...
    Anyway i think the list would be very fun to play with, although it IS a bit cheese. Even IG dont have the bodies to stand up to that kind of firepower...but then, ACs and rending are what marine commanders live for, eh?
    Good list, sound idea.

    The librarian needs a storm bolter, he can't use a bolt pistol with terminator armor, or you can just not give him a ranged weapon. Also with psychic powers are you keeping emperor's wrath and adding fury, or replacing emperor's wrath? It's not a huge deal but it could matter points wise. Though wrath is better for damage, fury is for making lots of things take pinning tests.

    Your dreads need extra armor.

    I hope you're not playing where you get an army composition score, that's all I have to say.
