Default Powergaming Test Comparisons

So I decided to test out my chaos list in the power gaming test that Wargamer has in his sig (he didn't make the test!). Then I thought it'd be neat if there was a thread for people to compare their lists and what score they got. So, here's the test http://www.geocities.com/newpaintbrush/puritytest.html

I got a score of 14 (Powergamer) with this list:

(Fast Lord)
Chaos Lord
Wings
MoK
Daemon Weapon
Meltabombs
165

(Mech Berzerkers)
8 Berzerkers
Champ
Power Fist
Rhino
243

(Mech Berzerkers)
8 Berzerkers
Champ
Power Fist
Rhino
243

8 Raptors
Champ
Power Fist
200

8 Raptors
Champ
Power Fist
200

(Cheap Dakka Pred)
Predator
2 Heavy Bolters
100

(Cheapest AT)
Obliterator
75

(Cheapest AT)
Obliterator

1 Greater Daemon
100

Dreadnought
2nd Arm

Total 1501

Post what you got using what list!

Well I cant post my list because it has these errors when I preview it so I'll just explain.
I have a Blood Angels army, and I played a 1900 point battle against a friend today with the list and won.
My army cost: 1875 points
HQ 15%
Elites 11%
Troops 56%
Fast Attack 3%
Heavy Support 14%

I added points for:
"If more non-Troop choices are taken than Troop choices:Add 4 points."
(I had 4 troop choices and 6 non-troop choices)

"Each non-mandatory special character that does not require opponent permission to field: Add 2 points for each such character."(Lemartes)

"For each ten points in the army under the army point limit: Subtract 1 point."(I was using 1875 points in a 1900 point battle so -2 points)

"For every two maximized Troop units without a transport: Subtract 1point."(I had 2 10-man tac squads with 10 men so -1 point)

I ended up with 3 points(regular gamer).
I'm pretty happy with that because I only made the list in a hurry and with the models i had at hand.

keep posting yours people!

I think powergaming starts in the teens.

Sniper King, I'm going to assume that is a 1K list, because it's about that...

HQ: 88pts (8.8%). [0pts]
ELITES: 250pts (25%). [0pts].
TROOPS: 480pts (48%) [0pts].
FAST ATTACK: 0pts (0%) [0pts].
HEAVY SUPPORT: 165pts (16.5%) [0pts].

All troops have same upgrades: +1pt (depending on how you interpret the wording of the test).
More non-troop than troop choices: +4pts.


Total: 4/5pts - Regular Gamer.

I'd take it, but the Tyranid and Eldar sections are woefully out of date now. :-\

Firstly, a couple public service announcements from Mon Calamari

Can people please not go berserk about the accuracy of the test. Allow me to quote:
Quote:
As this purity test was created through a human agency, however, note that the following purity test is purely subjective - not authoritative in any way, shape, sense, or form!

Again, I make no claim of objectivity or authority with this test! The following test is simply one perspective on what the composition of different armies in the WH40K would be, if such armies were created to be consistent with the background information of the Warhammer 40,000 universe
And to the owner of a Super Star Destroyer, your bridge has been broken into. Again...

Anywho.

My 1500pt mechanised tau army

2x shas'el fireknife w/ targeting array
6x stealth
3x 10 Fire Warrior teams in Devilfishes
2x solo fusion piranhas
2x railheads

Score: 5 (regular gamer). Not bad for an army that I consider to be one of my more competitive lists.

I love this line
"If the army list was specifically rewritten to have a lower score on this test: Add 2 points."


My 1800 point Praetorian army scored a two.
6 Command Squads
9 Infantry squads
2 Lascannon Squads
3 Heavy Bolter Squads
1 Missile Launcher Squad
