    Tournament list with a twist

    I considered putting this in army lists but what I have to say doesn't quite fit into the category.

    I'm not sure if this event is happening anywhere else or just our local store but in February we are having a "Battleforce" tournament. There are no conditions except that your force must be a battleforce and a single HQ.

    As there is no new Dark Eldar Battleforce the manager has decided that our "Battleforce" should contain as follows;

    Box of Wyches
    Box of Warriors
    Raider box
    Reaver box
    Any HQ (But only one model)

    There is no point limit and no Force organisation so the Wyches can be Hekatrix blood brides etc. But we cannot add any extra bits that are not in the Battleforce/HQ. What I'm wondering is what you guys recommend I should gear out the various squads like.

    Should I make warriors Trueborn and give them Shardcarbines (Conversions are allowed as that is a seperate part of the competition) or even crazily gear them up for CC? I could give them a dark lance and a Splinter Cannon and have them hide back.

    With this sort of choice I'm a bit overwhelmed. Given the same criteria what army would you rustle up?

    Lelith
    Bloodbrides on raider
    Warriors with Blaster and Dark Lance.
    Reavers fully kitted out.

    This is if you dont count points and doesnt follow the Foc.
    You need something to take out enemy armour early. Thats where the dark lance comes in.
    some battleforces contain some very nasty cc-specialists, so make your wyches bloodbrides and throw Lelith in there to totally slaughter opposition.
    Run reavers with the hook. If you run into some nasty special characters like vulkan or Logan you might want to place him elsewhere so that the bloodbrides can deal with him separately. Give bloodbrides Shardnets and Impalers so that they can neuter killer characters. Three shardnets means -3A for any character, leaving most with just 1.

    yeah man that would be a boss battle force, you could even swap out the reavers for hellions if you wanted.

    units and fit outs -
    i would turn the warriors into 2 5 man true born units w/ H weapons (provide fire support and maybe hold objectives if thats a mission your playing)

    wyches i would put in the raider to get in CC ASAP (id giv them 2 hydra gauntlets and the hekatrix would hav an agoniser are blast pistol phantasm grenade launcher, all wychs with H.wire grenades. i would give the raider chain snares and flicker and night sheild)

    reavers i would give them a blaster for a bit of tank busting ability (maybe a pwr weapon/agoniser for the champ if he can have one just for a bit of help if the need to get into combat)

    for the HQ i would use a hemonculus and put him in the wych units so they can get FNP off the bat (no idea wat equips id giv im though, liquifier gun most prob and an extra nasty special item maybe one of the caskets or a shatter shard)

    Ah yes... reavers, not Hellions.
    My mistake. Only Hellions have the Hook and I guess you can't switch out units. Reavers with blade vanes and caltrops are your friends. More Anti tank is needed.

    As far as I recall, points and FOC mean diddly squat, but I am limited to what comes in the box. So for instance I can't have 3 pairs of Hydra Gauntlets since the Wych Sprue only comes with one pair.

    Raider Dark Lance all the fun stuff

    3 Trueborn dark lance dracon with all the fixens inc a power weapon (agonisors can be used better on other sarges)

    7 Trueborn literally everything (dracon blast pistol agonisorghostplate, phantasm, grenades, shard carbnes, a shredder, a blaster, a splintercannon...

    Reavers cluster caltrops blaster arena champ with powerweapon (from wytches or warriors box)

    The original mix seems like the most likely for a box set minus the HQ since I don't know of any other box sets that come with one.
