400pts list for 40k in 40 minutes games

Post by duncndisorderly on Fri May 13, 2011 4:12 am

The local store is gonna start running a 40k in 40 mintes league and as I understand it the restriction are as follows :-
1 troop choice minimum
No characters with 3 wounds or above (sorry nidz)
no vehicles with armour of combined 34 or above

I have never played with such a small amount of points before and as such am struggling a little. as it stands mind I'm considering 2 different options

Option one = GK
8 man strike squad = psycannon, 1 Hammer, 5 halberd pysbolts and a Rhino 265
Psifle dread 135pts
400pts

or option 2 = Blood Angels
Chaplain with infernus pistol and melta bombs = 120pts
6 man death company = 5 power weapons 1 power fist 1 infernus pistol and Rhino = 280pts

any thought or suggestions appreciated

Keep in mind that if its 3 wound characters, then non character mcs may still be allowed, all your points in one squad can also be an issue.

Saw your post so thought I would try a few lists out. This is the one I seem to be winning most 400pts combat patrols on.

Grey Knight Terminator Squad - 275 Points
- Nemesis Demon Hammer
- Justicar Anval Thawn

Razorback - 80 Points
- Lascannon & Twin-Linked Plasma

Razorback - 45 Points
- Standard

I killed there armour Armour with the plasma r lascannon razorback. Used the second razorback as troop support with its twin linked bolters. Then killed everything in reach with my terminators watching shots just bounch off my armour. I lost Anval by personnal choice in one game. I knew he would come back sooner or later so I didnt see the need to waste a terminator.

Hmm...don't think you can take transports without a GKSS or Purifier squad to go with them. If I recall correctly you can't have models with 2+ armor saves. There's an all-around armor restriction as well so no Dreads allowed I'm afraid.

The unit itself has to be 10 strong to combat-squad the way i read it.
The dread is fine- Duncndisorderly said the restriction was 34: 12+12+10= 34. I thought the limit was 32 usually, but they get changed depending on the league I guess.

What about taking a small squad of GKSS and a larger unit of interceptors? Use the manoeuvrability of the interceptors to stay at 24" pounding away with stormbolters and psycannons and then jump-pack in and kill things when you need to or shunt to objectives. You can get 5 GKSS and 10GKIS for 360 points giving you 3 units buzzing about. That gives you only 40 points for upgrades, but you can have 3 psycannons and a hammer which isn't so bad. After all, you already have 15 power weapons.

So on playing a few games and the local shop refining there rules they came up with the folloiwng
HQ = Optional
Troop = minimum 1 but as many as you llike
Armour on vehicles = no more than a maximum of 32
Wounds = maximum of 2

With that in mind i went for
6 man strike squad 1 x psycannon 1 x Mc hammer and a rhino =195 pts
6 Interceptor squad 1 x incinerator 1 x Mc hammer 2 x halberd = 201 pts

Brother Champion

GKSS x9 - Nem Force Halberd, Demon Hammer, Psycannon
Razorback - Psybolt ammunition, Twin Linked Autocannon, Sorm Bolter, Dozerblade

Combat Squad them to a 5, 4 place the Brother Champion with the 4 without the Just. One squad in Razor other on foot.


remember that you can only combat squad if your unit exists of 10 models and that you can only combat squad them to 5/5

are you allowed to use elite slots? if so i would suggest:

5 man SS: 1 hammer 1 psycannon, razorback twin linked heavy bolter psibolt ammunition : 170 pts
6 man purifier : 1 hammer 3 halberds 2 psycannons. razorback twin linked heavy bolter, psibolt ammunition : 225 pts

5 points free
