    40min DE army

    I played last Sunday a 40 min "tourney" with a few friends. Their armies where Tau, necrons and IG.

    Here is the list I played.

    Ravager with 3 dissies and night field

    - Destroyed nearly all the necron army and 2 crisis units proved to be a good inversion, against IG it was destroyed first turn too many sentinels with lasscannons

    10 Warriors with 2 DL

    - Killed a couple of necrons, and covered my 12 warrior unit.

    12 Warriors 2 SC and 1 blaster + Sybarite with Punisher and Tormentor helm

    -The "hard-hitting" unit, they hunted the 3rd crisis battlesuit of the tau army and destroyed the few necrons that survived to the dissies fire. Badly deployed against IG they didn't arrived on CC and where destroyed.

    I won 2 of 3, not bad to be the first time I played 40k. The time i've passed reading have proved to be usefull.
    ¿Any comment to improve the army?

    Thx

    Hmm strange your ravager wasnt destroyed by the other 2 opponents in the first turn. I would drop it its like 30% of your total pts and therefor not worth it imoMost of us would go for warrior squads. Mass units always do well in small games. Anyway gj winning 2 out of 3 it aint easy to win with De and it aint easy at all when your a beginner.


    However with that statement out of the way, I would say listen to ArchonBjorn. He has a really good tendency to not say stupid things and give bad advice.

    I expected the ravager to be destroyed each game except against necrons, he played 2 units of 10 warriors and their range is just too short.
    Against the tau I deployed the ravager well hidden and with its fast movement it flanked the crisis and killed'em all
    The IG was the better player with difference and the sentinel movement (that i didn't know about) killed my ravager easily. And as Archonbjorn said I lost 30% of my army and lost the game
    What i've learnt about the ravager is that if it's well placed and hidden it can deploy a lot of fire on the enemy units but it's made of paper
    ¿What do you use to play in 40 min?
    My first thought was to play 4 units of 10 warriors, 2 units with DL and 2 with SC...

    Indeed, a Ravager that stays >24 inches away is practically invulnerable to Necrons in 40 minutes, seeing as 2 minimum squads are 360 points, chances are hes not going to have anything that can shoot more than 24", or less if he foolishly tries to move towards it.

    Against other armies such as Guard however, the weakness of the Ravager in it's first turn is revealed, nearly every gun on the field can knock it down. Thing to do would be to hide it first turn, and then pop it out and prey you kill the main anti-tank threat.

    I run a 40 mins force of:

    13 Warriors (10 with rifles, 2 with Cannons, one is a Sybarite with an Agoniser)

    10 Warriors (8 with rifles, two with Lances)

    10 Mandrakes



    You'd be surprised how deadly 30 attacks from Drakes are in such a small game.

    It seems a good option, i'll try the mandrakes instead of the warrior unit with the sybarite.
    I have too much to learn..
    I'll need your advice soon, thx you all guys

    Well I'll be... a potential use for my Mandrakes. Never thought of that.
    Looking for a compliment here is like looking for a girlfriend in a cemetary. You know you probably won't like what you dig up, but you'll take it anyway.

    i use a 40min force for a tourney a few months ago did really well against nids

    11 warriors with 2 splinter cannon
    11 warriors with 2 splinter cannon
    9 wyches with wych weapons plasma grenades, succubus with agoniser

    this list relies on both shooting and combat, move up and shoot the nids rapid fire, than charge with wyches(it hurts them half weapon skill, no aditional close combat weapons) so charge them so they just get 1 base attack

    Main problem you got is that if your facing a shooty army your wyches will be shredded and you will have a hard time dealing with vehichles. Ow look rhinos with AV11 hmmm.
