Default My Custom Chapter 1500


I made this to fight my brothers Eldar psycher craftworld army. He has tanks with crystal targeting matrix so he hides behind terrain pops up , shoots , then back behind the terrain. The mines always hit on the rear armor so this should help hit the things i dont have line of sight on
my plan is i will start getting victory points with the indirect fire .... so he will have to move to me.... when he comes the bikes rush out and shoot the tanks, and any units the bikes can get into close combat and use hit and run .... so i can tear it up with the dev squads. And the librarian has a psychic hood stock ... thats nice

im 50 points under i gotta either think of adding some thing or changing it
i was gonna use allyed grey knights, but this revision cut them out =p

what do you guys think?

My first thought is that it's diffrent, very diffrent. My second thought is ******! that's alot of artillery and heavy weapons!

First a question, where are you sticking the libarian? I assume he's not going to stand out there all by his lonesome. If you haven't already you might consider getting him a bike with those extra points you have.

Not knowing the army your facing I've no idea how it's going to do but you do seem awfully heavily geared towards anti-armour. While crystal matrix is annoying if you load the whirlwinds up with castillans you can make every move he makes risking possible damage. Since the mines alawys hit the back armour you can make his hiding places living hell and force them out to line of sight for the devastators.

Or was that the general idea?

Looks interesting. Giving the Lib a Bike would be nice so he can help out in CC. But keep him on his 'lonesome' so he cant be targetted. Although I don't know much about Mind War.

I'm liking the Whirlwinds, if you have enough Terrain he'll be using his Tanks to try and get a shot at the so you can use that to your advantage.

The Devs... Go for Missile Launchers !!! SO much cheaper.

ok so the lil brother pulled a switcheroo .... he used the iyendine craftworld!

his army was: Farseer, 2 transports with crystal targeting, holofield, and twin-linked brightlances. They were filled with howling banshees. then there was 2 squads of dark reapers, 2 Wraithlords with brightlances, and an avatar...

now he said if he marches with both wraithlords and the avatar within 6 inches i cant targed the avatar. witch makes sence but the avatar is so big lol...

i went first ... moved the bikes up with turbo boost on the right and left sides behind terrain.... then fired the whirlwinds( i went with the 5str ap4 missles) took out his dark reapers.

He turbo boosted his transports to the middle then moved his army 6 inshec toward me and said go.

I came up with the melta equiped bikes and glanced his transports..... fired 3 whirlwinds and finished his dark reapers.

i ended up smokeing the banshees with the dev squads and the bikes

Then the game ended before the avatar even got to me.

My list worked pretty good .... its just the whirlwinds ran out of possible targets after all his troops were dead

I belive this is a lie. if I rember correctly Avatar counts as a monsterous creatur so should be able to be targeted regardless how close it is to other units, even if they also count as monsterous as well.

I'd ahve to check toe book to be sure but i'm pretty sure that's right.

No such rule. He was just trying to cheat you but it sounds like you owned him.
