Default What to bring

First up is marines. Thena 2-3 man per side with orks next week.

Marines should be dark angel variant. I expect some plasma goodness, 2
dreads, 2-3 lanspeeders, jumppack chaplin, maybe crusader with
terminators.

Kick around some ideas for 2000, 2500, and 3000pt lists. We'll decide
Wensday night what pts we're playing.

I think for 3K, 2-3 exorcists, 3 serpahim squads are definately in.
Some other ideas are An =I= and some assissine goodness for havok in
elite section.

I was thinking part foot, part mobile in the troops. 16 man bolter
squads. Some rhino squads for zip and smackdown.


Thoughts?

Heya

So, for 3,000 points are you going to be allowed to have multiple detachments? In a power struggle you could use this to your advantage to squeeze in more faith.

List wise, it will take a lot of sisters to fill that 3,000 point list.

I would probably look for the Sister/Guard route. Then you can get a massive chunk of missiles and autocannons sitting on your side of the board, backed up by a Russ and two Exorcists. Then you have plenty of room for some massive foot squads of sisters and some Seraphim. For the small mobile groups, I'd suggest dominions, small groups, with small weapon loads (ie: don't buy all 4 special weapons) and make them faithful so that when they die the faith cycles back to you for your other units. The Inquisitor is definitely useful, so get your Liber Heresius and Psychic Hood perhaps on a Lord. The assassin is obvious--she will do nasty deeds.

What all do you have available?

Cheers!

What do I have? Everything, literally. Guard, tanks every unit for WH, you name it, I can field it, including a Landraider for an =I=


Hmmm, guard as well, and a russ. Completely forgot about that. A platoon, a armored fist and a russ.....in 3K. Lascannons, misslelaunchers and plasmaguns.

~Getting close to 3,000 points. Easily can achieve the rest through the purchase of special weapons like meltas and flamers.

Just an idea perhaps.

Very close to what I'm thinking.

2000pts look like:

cannoness
blesed weapon
inferno pistol
mantle
cloak
jumppack

cannoness
jumppack, evisorator
inferno pistol
cloak


16 sisters, vet book evisorator
16 sisters, vet book, evisorator
10 sisters, flamer, melta, vet-book bolter, rhino
10 siters, flamer, melta, vet-book, bolter, rhino

serpahim 8
2 flamers, vet plasmapistol, CCW book

serpahim(7)
2 inferno pistols, vet plasmapistol, CCW book

exorcist
exorcist
9 rets, 4 heavy bolters vet book, bolter


AT 2500pts, drop the rets(saves 180pts)

Add a russ and as many guardsmen as I can squeeze into 500pts. Missle and perhaps plasmaguns.

AT 3000K, fill out the guardsmen, and buy =I= and eitehr 3 deathcult assassins and a caddliius OR 6 death cult assassins.


MAX out the chart.
