3 xv8
full squad of kroot with ox
full squad of tau
6 vespid
8 gun drones
2 xv88
1 squad of sniper drones

I feel Power gaming is having three HH in a 750 list.

no.

somebody who uses vespidīs without markerlights is not a powergamer but completely insane

No...definatly not. You have some variety in your list. Thats not a powergamer. Variety adds flavor.

Powergammer would be my list:

3 Railheads
3 DF with 12 FW
2 El with TLFB and PR + HWMT (deepstriking to kill tanks)
2 Squads of Stealth
2 Crisis with FB, PR, MT


Thats a Powergaming list. Its all focuses on high power shots. Plus its hard to kill that many skimmers. Thats why it is Powergaming! IMO anyway.

You took a krootox. Therefore you are not a powergamer

Powergaming refers to the attitude of a person, typified by a "win, win, win at all costs!" mentality. Sorta like a khorne beserker but winning instead of killing/maiming.

As to your list, we need the cheese-o-meter (should send that off to White dwarf, could make a good article).

The verdict........

quack, quack, oops.

Non-cheese list. 0/10.

You have an ethereal (WTF?), Kroot with Ox (lol, never even seen one out of the blister)....thats total anti-cheese.

He's obviously a rubbish player.

This is not powergaming for sure.

But powergaming would be much more nastier than this list.

I think you misunderstood him. He called the guy whos calls you a powergamer a rubbish player because he has to blame you being a powergamer instead of accepting his loss.
