Default 2K deathwing list done with style, mechanicus style.

Fun day today, i had to take a day off from work to get a new roof put on my house. so i went into a painting frenzy and finished my admech wing.

The list has seen a couple changes mostly due to where i could spend points(i kept ending up with a bunch of extra points but not enough to add anything).

The final list-

ADMECH-WING
(unified wargear )
HQ-
1.(inquisitor lok) belial,
Sword of secrets, storm bolter
Terminator armor
2.inquisitor lord karamozov

TROOP-
1.(servitors /engine seer) terminators X5
Chainfist X4, cyclone missile launcher X1,
apothecary, banner
2.(servo skulls /engine seer) terminators X5
Chainfist X4, cyclone missile launcher X1
3.(servo skulls /engine seer) terminators X5
Chainfist X4, cyclone missile launcher X1

ELITE-
1.venerable dreadnought (sentinel), las/missile,
extra armor-
2.venerable dreadnought (sentinel) las/missile,
extra armor-
3. Eversor assassin

HEAVY SUPPORT-
1.death storm drop pod
Whirlwind launcher

SPECIAL-
.full harness tech marines X2

TOTAL-1,995




Since i am using unified wargear rules i have to pay that little bit extra for my 2 shot cyclones and BS/WS 5 venerable dreads so i opted to loose one and a tech marine in exchange for karmazov and the assasin. since this is primarily a shooty force i figured a bit more dedicated CC would be in order.

I had enough points left over to get a FW deathstorm into the list for some added dakka.

Trial by fire starts tomorrow.

Only 3 troops at 2k? imo, you should have at least 4.

Umm... since you're getting heavy 2 cyclones, those are decent. Otherwise, I'd suggest dropping a couple chainfists in each squad to bump it up to an AC (actually kind of reccomend an AC anyways, but it's up to you).

Dreads are fine, as is the HQ and assassin. Save squeezing another squad of troops in there, I don't have much to say. Seems like it would be a lot of fun to play.

I've bee playing DW since 3rd so the army build is nothing new to me, i did this purely for fun value since i still like to play DW but don't consider them super competative. 3 troops slots is fine, and more than i normally run with especially with DW now that i can only take 5 man squads.

Hey, I figured you'd been playing for a while if you're bothering with this heavily of a converted/counts-as army. Fair enough if that's what you like. In which case, I suppose I have nothing more to say.

I don't see servo skulls being as hard as terminators.. nice idea.. but it's a SKULL.

If I was designing the army without regard to models, I would get a cheap inquisitor lord with a psychic hood and mystics in a Rhino instead of Karamozov. I also would drop the drop pods, techmarines and dreadnoughts to spare points for more Terminators. The strength of a Deathwing army is the ability to take tough troops and plasma is out of fashion (except LR Executioners). In my opinion, this is diluted by adding expensive walkers. You also probably don't need so many chainfists in your Terminator squads. Also perhaps equip Belial with a pair of lightning claws to make him a close combat threat.

Small, agile, hard to hit and lots of mechanicus goodies.....well i could use anything to justify it, but again i am going for theme here, since there is no official admech force outside fo gothic i just went with what i liked as a base list i thought about necrons but decided this would be cheaper. ;D
