Here is your first mistake. Emperor's Champions must always be an independent character. It can never lead, join, or be attached to any squad :P.

Other than that there's at least 23 points left. give your draeadnought the venerable upgrade ;D.

Pretty solid list though / Can't wait until your first BatRep

Correction, he may never lead, join or be attached to a command squad.

Good list, I run a Mech List as well, and I have to say that I dont like the next to no initiates, the LRCs and Landspeeders are great, but you need the punch the Marines will give you.

I have to disagree with you Icer. If you run too many units that can get tied up in hand to hand then your vehicles with guns are fairly pointless. Besides, not too many armies can deal with 2 LRC's with ease even at 2000 points.

Yeah, this list looks fun to throw down with....(hint hint Icer...)

That's so not true. Any tau list, or eldar list, or guard list or marine list can easily have the firepower to deal with two LRCs at 1000 points, let alone 2000.

I believe he is talking about from this area, there are only 2 or 3 Necron players that go to tournaments that I can remember, and very few players that have streangth 8 or better weapons, and against Templar(at least mine) lance weapons are just another streangth 8 weapon. Including Tau.

Yeah in this area not very many people play tons of S8 or things with a chance to auto glance.

Where I disagree the most is having several units that get tied up easily. If you cant assault them and you cant shoot them thats 270 some points sitting there looking pretty. Not my idea of point effectiveness.

As for the hint Icer...I'd like to try playing against that list, it could be a very fun match.
