Welcome to Librarium Online!
Just wondering if any one tried out this way of running a court...it seems to me that it could be very effective.
Royal Court 195pts
+ Veil of Darkness
Im not sure about you guys but a big chunk of my local game group runs Space Marines in one form or another so dealing with power armour is very important. The staff of light is STR5 AP3 Assault 3 but its main problem is the 12 inch range so to counter that I run a HoD with the Veil to deepstrike them every turn so they are were they are needed. Or you can run them out of the monolith which may be getting FAQed so you can pull your guys out of assault and if thats so youll be running a monolith anyway. With this set up you get 15 Staff of Light shots and one Abyssal Staff shot. That Staff of light shots alone should kill on average 6 to 7 marines and with the Abyssal Staff you should be able to get a few more (remember to shot it first since it is a template). I wanted to keep the cost of this unit down but if you wanted to you could run a ResOrb on the Lord as well. The downside to this unit is if your playing a low amour army like say Orks or Nids this unit wont be as effective but I still think it could find a role like dealing with lottas.
So what do you guys think? Has anyone tried something like this?

or you could bring:
-1 lord with ResOrb
-1 cryptek HoD with veil of darkness
it comes in at 238 points only 18 more than taking 5 crypteks and your guys now have S5 T5 2 attacks and a 3+ save. only downside is you dont have any lords left to spread around in your squads but you can always get a 2nd overlord
umm... its 268 points for 5lords with 1 resorb and the veiltek
its also 1 model more then the 5crypteks..
and 73 points more...
either go cheap with all cryptteks or go enough Lords to get majority T5, but try to keep it cheap(ish)
either way its an expensive unit that is crap in CC (unless you go lords with mindshackles) so the S5 and A2 shouldnt realy be an issue, only T5 and 3+ save
I've been hoping to run a rather big unit of Lords + some crypteks with a veil just to see how long it takes before the deepstrike misshap to occur...
Many MEQ armies want to get in pretty close so having 5 Crypteks mounted in a Ghost Ark should work killing lots of Marines if they try to get close by DS,Droppod or Rhino doesnt really Matter =)
But that might just be because I like the Ghost Arks for their D3 warriors each turn =D
