    New 2000pts tournament draft - fearless hammer/anvil

    Allright, as Cheradanine thankfully pointed out, my last list was flawed. Here is a fixed and in my opinion much more powerful list.

    The idea is a fearless centre(the anvil) with the avatar, two squads of avengers, a (little expensive)farseer that casts fortune and doom to help the avengers and a wraithlord. Hardhitting centre against both infantry and MCs.

    A more mobile, hardhitting element(the hammer) consists of a squad of fire dragons(i play a lot of marines and they are usually quite good against assault squads and tanks alike), harlequins and shining spears.

    Another element provides distraction(striking scorpions) and firepower for taking out enemy transports(war walkers, vyper,falcon) as well as contesting objectives.

    What do all of you think?

    without puilling it appart too much, chief concerns with the list is your spears need more number and your farseer is over cooked, however, taking that appart, I assume your hammer is basically the spears, the harleys in the falcon and the dragons.

    The problem then becomes trying to use such an acepted tactic IRL on the table top, against an army that is assault based, purely it is just timeing, which is fine
    against a shooting based army, your anvil will get outshot
    against a mixed army the temtation is to chuck the tactic out the window, to go for his firebase with your assault and to shoot his assault
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    i'd chuck out the spears as 7 attacks on the charge will kill just about nothing. i wouldnt mix weapons in the walker squadrons take out the starcannons, take out the scatter laser on vyper for 2 cannons as they are disposabe and u dont want them to cost much. with those points saved i'd take a 3rd avenger squad as they are good against anything. i'd chuck out the runes on the seer as they dont do much for me. i really dont like 10 dragons in serpent, can u kill 300pts of stuff with that unit? anyway the list is much better than the last and has plenty of potiential.
