    Barreldragon's 1000pt list

    I made this list last Saturday when I asked to play this one guy and he wanted to play a 1000pts list because we were short on time so I made this and even though I got my ass kicked (I didn’t know about the Chaos special rule that can negate my psychic powers on a +2 and he got lucky shooting down one of my wave serpents 2nd turn) well I like the list so I want to know what you guys think.

    1000pts

    well the big problem (apart from the old expensive seer with a target sign hangin round his neck) if the enemy has any decent anti-tank presence your screwed

    on the contrary i like the list. 2 tanks is a good number for 1k points. It seems very geared towards hordes, with the seer supporting and the serpents tank hunting, which may be your only weak spot. The serpents can't effectively carry and hunt tanks at the same time, so get the avengers in quick and dump em. I'm also not a big fan of the diresword, lots of nastys have high leadership and the power weapon/shimmershield combo gets you an invulnerable save in combat. put you a little over, but thats just m $.02....Cheers

    actually I think people are missing a trick, you do not have to have the avengers ion the aserpents at all, not ever, the serpents can just be two very good tank hunters

    My concerns are as follows:

    1. Poorest weapon selection on the exarchs, either of the other two choices would have been better

    2. Pathfinders just dont kill fast enough, these two squads will average a marine eah per turn, he can ignore them and deal withthe rest of your army, effectively you are playing with 750 points

    I would ditch the rangers, and be horribly tempted to downgrade the exarchs on the DA squads to 2xcatapults then use the points to add 2 more DA squads!

    However if you want to have varriety there are other options

    If you keep the DA using the transports and try and do FOF I do suspect you are rather doomed, you will take out 2 of his units, then die horribly
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    consider switching the rangers to a squad of reapers maybe, you lose infiltrate and a nice cover save but instead get the ability to decimate almost any infantry squad you shoot at. The exarch can also provide some anti tank if desperately needed
