500pt Doubles Tournament List ideas

Post by MaddoX on Tue Jun 19, 2012 10:18 pm

Hey guys. So there is a tournament that is coming up that I might enter with a mate (he will be running a chaos army). The points per person is 500pt and there is alot of rules around what you can take. They are
- You have to have 1+ hq and 2+ non hq choices
-You are only aloud 1 HQ
-You can only have 1 non hq unit with more than 2 wounds (how you would fit 2 units that fit all these rules and are have more than 2 wounds beats me?)
-No IC or HQ's with more than 2 wounds
-No MC Sad
-No units with toughness 6 and up
-No units with 2+ saves or equipment that gives 2+ saves'
-No vehicles with total armor walue over 33 (Front + side + back if you didnt know)
-No ordnance weapons
-No special characters

So what i take of this is they want basically troops and not much else. This is annoying for me as my army is primarily terminator based but I can't run them. Has anyone played a game with similar rules and know what works or not. Im looking at maybe a purifier squad, strike squad, some el cheapo hq, a rhino for the purifiers and mayb a vindacare but i see holes in that list. Hopefully you guys can shed some light

ok I have been trying to make a list and with all those rules I have realized something. There is no HQ unit that fits all these rules. They are mostly 2+ saves and the ones that arn't are either IC (a definition of independant character would be nice but im pretty sure they all are) or they are inquisitors which have more than 2 wounds. Also the next question would be if it a independent character if it was joined to a squad from the start?

ok I made a mistake it said no special characters but this still creates this overlap

ok so this is possibly my final list. Before I put it in I will say that my team mates chaos list will have 2 7 man squads of plauge marines and a 9 man khorne beserker squad in a rhino. The list I am looking at running is

Purifier Squad wt 2x Psycannon, 3x Halberds, Razorback transport - 191pt

Strike Squad wt Psycannon, Razorback Transport - 155pt

Then either and interceptor squad or another strike or purifier squad. What do you guys think will work the best for this list in combination with that chaos list
