Post by DOMIN4TRIX on Mon Feb 11, 2013 6:08 pm

Draigo

5 Palladins - 2 psycannon, 2 hammers

Cortaez

3 plasma Servitors, 2 Jokaero

3 melta Acolytes, 9 stormbolter Acolytes

3 melta Acolytes, 9 stormbolter Acolytes

3 melta Acolytes, 9 stormbolter Acolytes

3 melta Acolytes, 9 stormbolter Acolytes

10 Interceptors, 2 psycannon, 1 hammer

10 Interceptors, 2 psycannon, 1 hammer

Psydread

Psydread

A smidge over 2000pts so would need a little tinkering

A solid warlord in Draigo, almost guaranteed line-breaker with 20 Interceptors, potentially 9 scoring units (11 if I combat squad the Interceptors) 82 models.

Let me know what you think

I like it, have been toying with Coteaz and Draigo myself at 1850. Only concern would be the lack of strong scoring units but this can be covered by Grand Strat, I just like to use it in a different way and take strike squads instead of interceptors.

So the Interceptors and Draigo/paladins will apply the pressure and bear the brunt of your opponent's hard hitting units? I can already see that for this list to work, the timing of your units working together will have to be precise.

Other than the psyflemen dreads and the servitors, you have a very short range for a footslogging army. Plus your 5 natural scoring units are very soft so you'll probably have to rely on Draigo to make the pallies & interceptors scoring in objective games.

Well the Interceptors have an effective range of 60" so will apply instant pressure - probably combat squadding and sending all 20 around together (2 psycannon units / 2 hammer units)

With a single squad I use it as a reserve grab, with two I would be more aggresive and eliminate a weak flank early if I could. This obviously depends greatly on the mission.

Combine this with the support fire from the 2 dreads and Cortaez's unit and I have a T1 threat not to be sniffed at - buying enough time for my midfield to come into play.

Draigo is the biggest distraction we have - T5 2+ 3++ eternal warrior and a bodyguard to boot - to achieve slay the warlord my opponent will have to waste a significant amout of fire. If I was a betting man I would let Draigo eat a whole demolisher cannon template on his unit and still be confident of having 2 wounds left and a fully functional squad. Palladins with Draigo are a different proposition than without.

The Acolyte's are squishy but put can throw down alot of cheap S4 firepower and drop Land Raiders to boot.

Its just a list of things I like that might work pretty well

I can definitely see how the synergy can work--again, as long as Draigo/pallies and interceptors can bear the brunt or at least distract your opponent's heavier units.

I can get 48 Henchman for the same price as 17 Strike marines or 9 Terminators. Its personal preference as with everything here. I like to combine the immortal in Draigo and Pallies with the disposable - Acolytes.

My list at 1850 is
Coteaz
Draigo
2 x Palidins MC Halbard
1 x Palidin MC Halbard
4 x Storm Bolter Acolites with 2 x plasma acolites, 1 x melta accolite 2 x Crusaders, Razorback with TL Las
4 x Storm Bolter Acolites with 2 x plasma acolites, 1 x melta accolite, 2 x Crusaders, Razorback with TL H.Bolter and psy bolts
10 man strike with psi blots, 2 psi cannons, hammer and M.C halbard, Rhino and dozorblades
10 man strike with psi blots, 2 psi cannons, hammer and M.C halbard, Rhino and dozorblades
2 x Psy rifle dreads
Agis line and Las cannon.
Normal plan is to outflank the accolites, solo palidin is on the agis line (he makes for good back field support), Draigo and 2 palidins deepstrike, coteaz is attached to one strike squad, and the other goes into one rhino with the other giving cover to the one with the strike squad in it, razorback sit in the backfield giving fire support with the dreads and geting 4+ cover from the agis line or building if available.
Have found the crusaders make the squads realy tough, and draigo is just so strong in his tanking ability.
Just posted the list to give a different prospective on it, and I was glad to see someone else going with Draigo / Crow.
