*Facepalms*

They really put all the special Imperial Chars into them like that? :sadnshocked:
That's ridiculous.

There's a few tactics to counter that, but I will be the first to admit to not expecting such a thing to even begin to try and counter.

My Apoc force could easily deal with it if the Ravens started on your side and had to come to me, but I suspect that (with Apoc) that's not the case here.

Anyone got a rough idea how much that would all cost?

Not unless they deepstriked in front of the titan....or...at the back. 12" inches blindspot will only make the Titan curse "WHHHYYYYYYYY???!!!!!!!!???!?!?!!?"

With the stormraven , it will be soon that the titan will smell the cheese. And remember....a simple scout squad wwith a teleporter homeer can make this soo much more assholey. :P

and that is excluding the Apoc strategems. *cackles like a madman* >

Hm. In a reasonable Apocalypse game, I'd probably have at least Three (if not five) Baneblades on the Table. I'm sure two of them could take out this motley crew.

Yeah, this is an infantry's nightmare. But the Termie one is epic because of the fact that there are a number of Eternal Warriors that we could allocate to. We wished that the stormraven got another room, for we can then put corbulo in there with the termies. Imagine the madness of termies (super termies actually) and FNP.

I'm pretty positive Tigurius doesn't have termie armor. Just Artificer. Take him out and put Corbulo in. :P

Actually, the problem lies in the fact that Destroyer Strength weapons (or any weapon that invokes Instant Death) still ignores FNP

Fair enough. But from the look of this force, it does not need to worrry too much as it will try to geet those Str D weapons. Imagine these brave souls charging the Reaver Titan. I think they could come out alive and leave the titan a bloody mess.

Indeed, they probably would. Hm. This would also be a really cool situation for Honor Guard and/or Power Weapon-Lightning Claw Vanguard Veterans to really shine. Anything with a large number of Power Weapon attacks to overwhelm their invulnerable saves, methinks.

Yeah...but are the vanguards named characters? I don't think so. Feels like the stormtrooper effect already. :P

PS: WS, Weapons, etc. The all-star team pawns dyi. Period.
