Default Back again. 750 Deathwing

Well after a long year I've decided to reconnect with my W40K roots.

I'm planning on completing a 1750pt Deathwing force in time for Orktoberfest(Aussie Tournament.) So just to start out quick I've completed a small 750pt force which for now is enough to get going.

Once completed I'm planning to move up towards 1250pts, then wrap it all up with the 1750pt force. So any C&C is welcome and if you are able to give me some advice on how to expand my army it would be greatly appreciated.

HQ
Belial
-Normal wargear
130pts
When the army gets a bit bigger he will have a dedicated retinue so I can switch over to twin claws.

Elites
Dreadnought
-Lascannon
-Heavy Flamer
-Extra Armour

150pts

Troops
Deathwing Terminator squad
-Chainfist
(Will be adding an assault cannon later.)
220pts

Deathwing Terminator squad
-Chainfist
-Assault Cannon

250pts

750pts

Cheers.

I'm not a fan of the dread layout. You're either going to be using the lascannon or the heavy flamer, never both. I'd rather take weapons that synergize well, such as las/missile or multi-melta/flamer. I also feel as though a shooty dread doesn't need extra armour, so, if you go that route, there's somewhere you can save points. Either or should work.

Besides that, looks good.

I have to agree with crazy guy: I recommend you drop the extra armor on the dred.
In addition, I also recommend that you drop the lascannon on the dred and take and assault cannon. (The odds of popping a landraider are higher with that rending. )
Dropping the lascannon and that extra armor means that you can have an additional assault cannon on the second terminator squad. That's what works for me anyways. ;D
Hope that helps!

Well considering your collecting deathwing I think a 750 list wont be really any better than it is now because terminators are so expensive.

I like the dreadnought setup because it has a lascannon it can take on any tank in a 750 match and the heavy flamer can deal with light to medium infantry (noone else is really gonna take terminator equivelants in a 750).

The terminators are good as the assault cannons can put hurt on any type of troop unit and the chainfists add that little extra tank death on a field which will have little to no tanks to begin with.

Also I think you should make the belial model but until you get an army of atleast 1250 then make him a normal deathwing HQ. It'll be cheaper, but then again I would also run this list so i shouldn't talk :P

Good luck mate.

Belial's the only way to run deathwing, and he's incredibly cheap. Seriously. So friggin' cheap.
