Ghostwing at 1750 points

Post by Corennus on Mon Jun 06, 2011 8:31 am

Ghostwings are cool right? Mordrak coming down with his knights on turn 1, run into cover, gain a 3+ cover save from Stealth, bring in everyone else on a 3+ on turn 2.
I can think of something better.
Everything else comes in on turn 2 using a 2+ roll! oh and everything can take objectives, deep strike, and D3 troop units can reroll wounding rolls of 1 in CC.

All terminator units have each model wielding different wargear, so can allocate wounds. Admittedly this would be more effective if they could be Paladins, but the Force Sword gives them a 4+ inv save in CC, the halberds strike first against most enemies, and the daemonhammer.....it's a Str 10 daemonhammer after Hammerhand is cast so can take out anything.
The Brother Captain gives mordrak and his knights: Defensive grenades, psychotroke, -1 toughness on enemies (rad grenades) and meltabombs if the master crafted daemonhammer mordrak wields misses.

I think this list is pretty fluffy. against heavy mech it might falter. against hoarde armies it could be interesting as the 2+ armour saves come into their own, and against anything else.........you'd have to play and see

Has anyone written a Draigo/Ghostwing list? That would be very interesting....not that this is not. Have you considered larger squads with brotherhood banners? More attacks is worth 25 points per squad in my book.

I think a Librarain that strikes with Mordrack would be more usfull, his psychic Powers are stronger than the Grenades for Supporting the Unit and the Librarian can carry a Teleporter Beacon, though you dont have the additional communion, but i think that it isnt wirth it over the Librarian. Also i prefer only Halberds on the Ghosts, with good wound management you can summon new Ghosts wich automaticly will have Swords and increade the survivability ob the squad automaticly if its needed.

Could you give each squad 2 Psycannons, or is that only for Paladins scratch

I love the ghostwing it works great!! Have you thought of dropping the BC and a psycannon and adding Draigo? His EW and sanctified flame adds a huge punch to mordrak and his ghosts.. having 2 GM in the same squad scares the crap out of EVERYONE. they usually make it into turn three before the ghost die and your terminators are free to assault whatever you need them to.. I play an army just like this and it works the same way 90% of the time...

Good luck! May the dice gods smile upon you.

Hmm, might have to give this a try.

Although I'd make the terminator squads 10 man, and combat squad if needed.
I'd also look at trying to add the brotherhood banners, as they are a bargan for full 10 man squads.

@Constantine: It's paladins, as the restriction is 1 per 5 on the "ordinary" terminators and 2 per 5 paladins.

Any chance of you sharing your list with us Brother?

From what I have read, having the bigger squads is better because it allows you to be more versatile depending on your enemy.
