heavy 3 -- whirlwind 85

2000pts total



I wanted it to be a joining of companies 1,2, and 3, of the chapter. But still somewhat competitive.

I plan on Deepstriking the 2 shooty termi squads early and use the ravenwing as anti-tank while advancing with ezekiel and the tact squad following with the pred, using the Dev's and whirlwind as support. then deepstrike belial and the melee squad when i can.

This would be my first big army and im not sure if it will work as well as i hope. Please, any advice or suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

i have a few things to say
1. the devastator squad seems to be a big waste of points to me. the first time one of them gets killed a huge number of points go down the drain. i would suggest taking out the whirlwind and add 5 guys onto the dev squad then you can combat squad them with 2 heavy weapons in each squad. this also allows you to perhaps get 2 heavy bolters and 2 lascannons because each can be in a different squad.
2. like i said earlier take out the whirlwind i believe that only one is a waste of points. 2 or 3 are good because then scatter won't be as much trouble but just one is going to cause only minimum casualties.
3. i personally would only take one hq in this list and that is belial. he is strong and can be attached to that close combat deathwing squad. Ezikiel is from what i see not needed in this list it seems to be a mobile list and ezikiel is a huge number of points to be wasting on a footslogger. i would take him out of the list. this would allow you to instead take a rhino or razorback for the tactical squad allowing you to be a true mobile list.

this should all leave some points over by taking out ezekiel and the whirlwind maybe enough for another landspeeder w/assault cannon and multi melta. or what i would suggest is put in another predator w/lascannon and heavy bolter to be a fire base.

anyway here is my 2 cents :P

souds good. it gives me an extra 15pts to give the tact sgt a power weapon. the only reason I put ezekiel in there was that his abilities looked awesome, not to mention the model looks cool.

i do like ezekiel to but the only problem is that his one big power is totally random and can either be really good or just horrible(though that may be interesting) and that power weapon in the tactical squad really helps especially when you combat squad them.
good list ;D
