1600pt highlander tourney list

Post by Brother Jimmy on Sun Feb 05, 2012 7:37 pm

Just wanted some thoughts on this 1600pt highlander list

1Hq Grand Master- MC hammer,psychotroke grenades 200pts
2Hq Ordo Xenos Inquisitor- Scythian venom talon, 3 servo-skulls,psychotroke grenades 64pts

1Troop Terminator Squad- Justicar,MC Hammer, 4 swords 2 of which have psycannons, 4 halberds, brotherhood banner, squad has psybolt ammo 500pts
2troop Strike Squad- Justicar,MC Hammer, 2 psycannons, rhino, squad and rhino have psybolt ammo 300pts

Elites Purifier Squad- Knight of Flame, MC Hammer, 2 psycannons, 1 Incinerator, 5 halberds, squad has psybolt ammo 300pts

1Fast Stormraven- Assault cannon, multi-melta, hurricane bolters 235pts

So the Grand Master goes with the squad of termies. Either deep strike in or march'em pending on the mission and deployment. Inquisitor joins the purifiers in the Stormraven and they will zip up and deploy as soon as possible to take advantage of shooting and assualting. And the Rhino will be much the same, zip up, deploy on or close to an objective and shoot and assault if need be.

i lik e this list and think it can do good.
if you are open for some oppinions i say:

drop the scythian venom talon on the inquisitor and give him the psyker upgrade including hammerhand and give him rad grenades ontop. this way you can support the purifiers even more:
his hammerhand will buff them up to S5. reduce the toughness of the enemy by 1 so MEQ is mostly T3 so your purifiers wound on 2+. still your purifiers are able to activate their force weapons (if an opponent is higher in the toughnes than 4) use cleansing flame or even use hammerhand also since it stacks. giving multiple S6 attacks against T3 is also instant death.

to get those needed 30 points for this however i think drop the hurricane bolters on the stormraven. first of all, they are "only" 6 syncronised bolters. second the stormraven can be shot down pretty quickly in wich case making him even more expensive can be risky.

Welcome to the forums!

Agree w/ Brother Souba, I would trim the SR to base cost and give the OXI the mentioned upgrades.

very balanced army (with some relative lack of range anti-tank power though, even with the psycannons), and i assume that you have only 1 inquisitor (cause 3 HQ is too much Razz Razz )

I used the talon to basically be a point filler. And yes never, ever use psycannons to take out tanks that are more the armour 12. I would drop the hurricane bolters... BUT i love them. I enjoy deepstriking the bird, popping the opponents favorite transport and pelting the hell outta the occupants... blahahahah And then also firing the mindstrike missiles at a different unit and "thin out the herd". I usually disembark the purifiers as soon as possible. That way you can take advantage of there awesome shooting, and if any thing gets close enough they are well... toast. But what I am really worried about is deep striking the 700pt termies and having a 160pt Manticore roll a bulls eye, and a 6 on the D3, And then completely wipe out the termy squad.

i think i read it right that you deepstrike close to the enemy with the SR. and destroy a vehicle with it and then you shoot at the opponents inside the vehicle with the SR?

if yes then that wont work. a unit always fires its weapons simultaneously, even vehicles with split fire options like power of the machine spirit. that means you cant pop a vehicle with the multimelta and then shoot the passengers with hurricane bolters and the assault cannon.

if you still dont want to drop the hurricane bolters then drop the talon on the inquisitor and give him rad grenades. those things are far more reliable and work better overall with the purifier unit.
