Wait, what? The game is this weekend! Okay, I can do that. PM me if that is really the case.

A couple notes:

Grey Knights? Can you take them with standard Space Marines?

The Sterguard will be tough. 5 (potentially 8) scoring units. Nothing to sneeze at.

Overall, I think the list is very strong. To be honest, countering a Lash army isn't so much about what you bring to the table. It's about how you prioritize your targets.

Oh, and Nurgle? I've been painting Eldar lately too. What will I bring to the game? :shifty:

ooo! Eldar, that could be a fun change. I can take the GKT as a detachment. I'm still unsure about them though, They are a huge point sink. Plus now that u have seen my list I'll have to change things up . Also I was under the impression it was this weekend , though if we hold off that would be better for me (and you from the sounds of it.)

From Page 21 of The DH codex:

" In Keeping with the many posiblities for the forces of the Ordo Malleus to appear within Space Marine and imperial forces, Daemonhunters units can be included as allies in any of the following Codex arimes:
-Space Marines, including variant armies such as Blood Angles, Space wolves Dark Angels*, Black Templars, Salamanders and other Loyalist Index Astartes Chapters.
-Imperial Guard and It's variants such as Catachan Jungle Fighters and Armageddon Steel Legion
-Sisters of battle

Neather Inducted Imperial Guard nor allied Space Marines may be included in such a contingent, ( aka. you cant be imp guard and use the contingent rule to take a normal tact squad. a lot of people didn't read this closely and got confused.) and the total number of Daemonhunters units chosen may not exceed the following
0-1 HQ
0-1Elites
0-2 Troops
0-1 Fast attack
Note Heavy Support may not be chosen."

That line I indicated confused a lot of people when the Codex just came out b/c it appears to be totally contradicting what was just written above.
What it is really saying is since the Daemonhunters list has the ability to take allied Space Marines/ Imp Guard, you can't say "I'm going to take a couple of units of vanilla battle bro's in my guard list and say they come from the inquisition."

Also as Gray Knight ARE daemon hunters, they don't count as Allied Space Marines (which you select from the SM codex itself),.

In the end I'm a little surprised that you red shirt failed to know that. it's kind of his job.........

Also, we will mention that while we are facing the double lash list from puppyeater and another nurgle list from Aureus, bondzy and I are well set. I am including my 2500 point mechanized infantry list in there as well. Keep in mind that this mechanized army is Adeptus Mechanicus, so I think it fits rather well. I am not going to disclose what I am bringing into the game until that day, but it is SICK!

A couple points of note. Here is my army list for the game. This will not be changed between now and the game. However, Puppyeater's list will remain secret until game day to balance Full-choke's list being secret.

This is the mission we will be using for the game.
