Default 1750 Terrenus Crusade, for Tourney

Ok, so my origional list was geared specifically for 2000 points... as that is where it is most effective, so I had to drop my Demolisher and my Annihilator. I am very unsure of this list, and I will probably end up changing it a litttle, or completely. I need to get in some games before I change anything yet though.

If anyone could PLEASE comment on this, I would be much appreciated.

HQ -
Emperor's Champion - Accept any Challenge - 140
Master of Sanctity - Bolt Pistol, Adamantine Mantle, Holy Orb of Antioch, Terminator Honors, melta bombs - 176

TROOPS -
3 10 man Crusader squads with a power fist, and a melta gun, in Crusaders(blessed hull, smoke) - 478 each

This comes out to exactly 1750 points. And, as stated before I NEED comments on this.

Holy crap you have [size=14pt]balls[/size].

This list will do one of two things.

1 - WIN BIG

2 - LOSE BIG

Unfortunately in a tournament environment I think you'll end up losing big more often than not. Land raiders aren't that tough for most armies to crack and quite a few armies have ways of avoiding melee troops. Those poor tanks have pretty much two options at the beginning of the game. Move forward full speed to get the troops into combat, or move at 6" and fire at the enemy as you advance. Both options have their own obvious disadvantages.

I have to say fluffwise this list is ace, and its really well themed but I think we can make it better. Now I don't know what models you have so I'm just going to prattle off some good options, shoot them down as you like.

Also are the crusaders a heavy support choice or a dedicated transport (I don't have BT codex). It makes a big difference depending on what's what.

HQ -
Emperor's Champion - Accept any Challenge - 140
Master of Sanctity - Bolt Pistol, Adamantine Mantle, Holy Orb of Antioch, Terminator Honors, melta bombs - 176

TROOPS -
2 10 man Crusader squads with a power fist, and a melta gun, in Crusaders(blessed hull, smoke) - 478 each

Dreadnought w/ twin-linked lascannon, missile launcher - 135

Dreadnought w/ twin-linked lascannon, missile launcher - 135

Land speeder tornado - 80

Land speeder tornado - 80

That's the first thing I could think of. I'll see if I can come up with anything else.

Crusaders are both Dedicated transports for every entry in the BT codex(except normal Sword Bretheren, because of a typo, and Assault Marines) and a Heavy support choice.

I like the look of that one though. I amost said no the the second dread, but then I remembered that I have a second one that I can switch out the arms on.


So far, with my 2k list, my record is about 5-2.

I'm adding a third list to this one, and I think it might be pretty good, not overly sure though as I have not been able to test it.

HQ -
Emperor's Champion - Accept any Challenge - 140
Master of Sanctity - Bolt Pistol, Holy Orb, Adamantine Mantle - 156

TROOP -
14 Man Crusader - Power fist, melta, LRC(smoke, blessed hull) - 518
13 Man Crusader - same - 108

FAST ATTACK -
2 Seperate Tornadoes - 80 points each

HEAVY -
2 Vindicators, extra armor, smoke - 133

1748 points

And yes, I did see the third post in a row as neccessary, as the last time I posted was a month ago.

On the last list, I'd run them as a squad. They'd have to take out both just to get points from them. While they are only AV 10, notice how hard my piranhas are usually to get points from.

As for taking missile Launcher/Assault cannon its not the best. You have dual effectiveness, one is long range the other mid range. I'd go one way or the other, specially since missile launchers take out your dreadnought CC weapon.

But they are all solid lists, thought grot's will probably still win against you...
