I just played my first game with my first 40k army the other day. I'll bt up the battle report in the right section for feed back, but here is the list:
5 Tesla Immortals - 85
5 Tesla Immortals - 85
5 Lychguard with hyperphase swords and dispersion shields - 225
Annihilation Barge - 90
Overlord with warscythe, ressurection orb and phylactery - 145
Vryptek with Eldritch Lance and Gaze of Flame - 45
Lord with warscythe and res orb - 75
Total - 750
Game was a draw, but I had everything standing and he had nothing. (Salamanders - 25 tac marines, 2 pods and vulkan) I really liked the lychguard, and with -attached lord and overlord they were really points-heavy, but destroyed his whole force. I really like the look of the new stalker, and want to get that and some blades. I also want no warriors in my force, and I hate the look and I like immortals more. Where should I go from here?
Overlord on a command barge smashes things
also solar pulse is nice
nice list, glad you had a draw (cause its better than a loss)
what to do then ...
normally i would say at 750 drop the lych guard and take more immortals or some barges, since you like them maybe make your expanding army focused around them (i dont know, just an idea)
things to change, drop the phylactery off your Olord, not worth the points right now (and usually not later)
drop gaze of flame and probably the other lord, use the points to buy another lance tech and increase the size of your immortals to atleast 7
but im curious as to where the lord and tech went, a unit each or stuck together
and finally, i was so excited when i saw the new models, might return to necrons
Yeah, I'm curious what you did with your court too.
As for expanding, you can never go wrong with more annihilation barges or more immortals.
If you liked the lychguard deathstar, I'd suggest a despair.tek with a veil to help them get to where they need to go. You'll find footslogging them at higher levels can be very ineffectual.
Drop the phylactery from your overlord and give him mindshackle scarabs. Those things are the bee's knees when used correctly (read: on the powerfist sergeant or enemy IC's or MC's).
An overlord on a command barge is pretty beefy, and will allow you to have another court (which means two crypteks in a squad, or a cryptek and res.lord combo, or whatever).
Solar pulses are great. Never leave home without one.
And that should get you started. Really, the main question I would go with is: "Do you want to stick with the concept of a lychguard deathstar?", because that will be what you design your army around. If not, try a few other styles of lists and see if there's anything else that catches your fancy.
The cryptek went with one squad of immortals, the ovlerlord and lord both went with the cryptek. Also, since the last post Ive gotten a stalker, spyder and trazyn (using him as a Harbinger of Destruction.
Since then two victories - Imperial fists (kill points) and Guard (sieze ground). Even at 5, immortals are hugely resilient. Also, I proxied in a few crypteks - despair and storm. Lychguard plus olord and veil of drakness is ridiculous, and really screws over gunlines. I will not be drooping them, as I am now in 1000-1250. Also, spyder is great for everything, as it killed 4 sentinels, a 10man tac squad, a predator, and a normal Guard squad. It also repaired my heat ray (stalker) and t-l tesla desturctor. Im also loving the stalker - a heavy 2 melta is great and the twin-linkingplus tesla is ridiculous.
i also love crypteks, and am planning on getting one of transmogrification for my next immortal squad. Next I'm debating between more immortals, another barge, another spyder or some praetorians for crypteks.
The CCB overlord seems really cool, with sweep attacks then gettign out and assualting. I like him, but won't be taking 2 hqs unitl larger games. I also need a warsctyhe and res orb in my lychguard so the don't get tied up by a tank and become more resilient (respectively). I could use a lord for that, but the I can't do veil shenanagins. There is Obyron, and he looks bad*** both paper and model wise, but there is a general consensus at my club that taking special characters is a no-no, and totally illegal during anything competitive.
