    Small Point Games.

    I made a similar thread in the Tyranid forum. The idea is, that I've yet to play a 5th edition game or ever played 500 points or 750 points.

    So what I'd like to ask is for some tried and true 5th edition lists for 500 and 750 point, because my regular group has decided that when we start 5th it will be from the ground up, like newbies, and I have huge problems making small point lists.

    Thanks.

    I know what I'd take. (But I don't know that that makes it "tried and true". )

    500 pts:

    * 2 Fireknife Shas 'el

    * 12 Fire warriors in Devilfish

    * 10 Kroot, 3 Hounds


    750 pts:

    * Centurion Shas'el (Centurion can be good because infantry will be much more prevalent at small points than armour)

    * Fireknife Shas'el

    * Fireknife Crisis Suit

    * 12 Fire warriors in Devilfish

    * 10 Kroot, 4 Hounds

    * Railhead

    Maybe for the 750 pt list, drop the Elite Fireknife and get a 2nd Kroot squad (have to drop a couple of hounds to make the points work).

    These lists work for me. Plenty of mobility and firepower, and as much as Troops matter in 5th edition, 2 ought to be enough for small games. Use the other units to contest others or, more likely, just wipe out enemy units. There is plenty of anti-infantry firepower in either list.
    ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

    I to am enjoying playing smaller (500 point) games; after many minutes of brainstorming up ideas I have concocted what I hope to be a balanced list.

    Shas’el Fireknife with PR, MP, TA, HWMT, HWDC, and 2 GD
    Shas’ui Deathrain teamleader with TLMP, TA, HWDC, and 2 GD
    12 man Firewarrior Team with Shas’ui and BK
    Devilfish with DP
    12 man Kroot squad
    499 points

    I’ve tried to run this team without the gun drones and found my battlesuits getting tagged by just enough fire to bring them down. I’m hoping that the extra meat (cybernetic?) shielding will allow for some retaliation.

    Why did the chicken cross the road?
    For the greater good.
