theres a tournament coming up that basically starts out where everyone had a fleet in space which destroyed each other and the 200 point warband is the survivors. you need an HQ and at least one troops with a minimum of half the minimum squad number (eg, fire warriors would be 3 min [if an odd #, then rounded up])
you start with 200 points and it gradually grows as you win battles. you get a few points here and there which you can reinforce your squads with and replace casulties. if your commander dies you roll after the game to see if he was only badly wounded or if he actually died. if he dies no big, hes replaced later with someone else.
the rules are no tanks until later in the game, and no weapons with str 6 or greater. ive narrowed it down to 2 lists which i like the most.
there's also a rule about a campaigner? a model who teaches your HQ everything. if he lives you get bonus points, but i dont know what i would do for the campaigner.
Ethereal = 200
Fire Warrior (
Shas'el = 198
TL Burst Cannon
Fire Warrior (
ok it did something to my numbers??
in list 1 theres 8 fire warriors and 10 kroot and in list 2 theres 8 fire warriors and 8 kroot
Hey i really like the idea of that tourney.
I personally would go for list number two.
But Burst cannons dont have any place on a Crisis suit. Upgrade at LEAST one of them for a plasma or a missile pod (preferably both) drop a couple of kroot if you need to. Its just that with the fireknife setup, you have something that can really take down Marines and other equivalent armoured troops. The rest of your list would struggle against marines early until they start to build up thier numbers.
I personally wouldn't use the ethereal, he is a pretty weak HQ and expensive as well.
What would add next.
Both lists, however, are illegal, if you're using the rules as printed in the codex.
List #1 is illegal because the Commander (Shas'el or Shas'O) is a "1" entry, meaning you must take one in an army list. List #2 is illegal because you have to fill all three hard points on the Crisis Suit, and you have only filled two (twin-linked weapon).
I'd recommend something like this:
Shas'el with Cyclic Ion Blaster; Burst Cannon; Targeting Array; HW Multitracker
Then fill the rest of the points with as many FW's and Kroot you can get.
Also, Mike, the reason your numbers are messing up is because of emoticons. Don't use () with your numbers and you won't get emoticons.
[QUOTE=Lost Nemesis;874107]While this is true, he can't. He states that weapons of S6 or greater are not allowed.
My bad. You see, this is what happens when you speed read getting to the lists themselves.
I also like the CIB option.
I love the idea for this tournament. Are the full rules anywhere on web? I think we migt run a campaign like that ourselves. Be sure to post the results. As for the army list: the shas´el with cyclic ion blaster and burst cannon. I myself don´t like kroots (they have to yet prove their usefullness to me) so I would probably go for two squads of fire warriors, one with carbines and the other with rifles. Since most enemies will probably try to get to cc. with you, its worth it having a carbine or two to have at least a chance (no matter how small) to pin them.
