Default Niche Spam Lists

So... what's everyone's favourite uber unit to cram as many as they can into a list? Destroyers? Wraithguard? Jetbikes/bikes?

Just some discussion about making stupidly weighted list towards one troop type. It's something I've been doing a lot recently - the Witch Hunters list that's nearly all Arco-Flagellants and Penitent Engines, or the 4,000 points Imperial Fists list that includes as many Terminators as is legally possible.

I used to do it with Guard Conscripts. In a 1k point list, I think I got 120 conscripts in, and the army itself had 200 models...

Actually, 200 model Conscript army would be bloody brilliant to field just to see my opponent's face ;D.

But normally, I don't try to spam any one unit really, but I have built lists around one trick ponies (700 point Khorne Chosen Aspiring Champions in the old Codex, and the Hammer of Tarsiss (Chapter Master, 4 Terminators and LR transport), 600 points)...

Oh, they're not necessarily supposed to be effective, nor are they necessarily supposed to be something you'd actually field =P

Apoc, nine baneblades. Actually saw it on the field.

Realistically, a combination of assassin formations and the terminator formation are probably the most broken thing in existance. Theres nothing that one of those two can't obliterate.

I like Spamming Spawn! Last (first) time I used the new chaos list my 1000pt list had 12 chaos spawn! It was fantastic. When my Spawn Charged his Genestealers, the Nid player was so confused!

Mmm, love charging genestealers/harlequins.

Playing BA against dedicated CC armies is always a very messy, high casualty affair, but it's an absolute blast.

Genestealer and necron warrior spamming have to be two of the most common...but one Ive actually built a list around is spamming basic guard infantry squads. Sure, conscripts are cheaper...but the infantry squads get cheaper lascannons, making them better overall, and I can still fit a stupid amount into 1500-2000 pts.
