2000 points musing list

Post by Corennus on Wed Jul 17, 2013 8:57 am

Eldar are in the ascendancy. Daemons are no longer eternal warriors. Necrons have living metal and all sorts of gauss and tesla...

Idea for consideration:

HQ

Inquisitor (Hereticus)
Psyocculum
Servo Skulls x 2
56

Inquisitor (Malleus)
Psyocculum
Servo Skulls x 2
56

ELITES

Henchmen Squad (3 man)
Servitors w/ Plasma Cannons x 3
60

Henchmen Squad (3 man)
Servitors w/ Plasma Cannons x 3
60

Techmarine
Conversion Beamer
Orbital Strike
160

Techmarine
Conversion Beamer
Orbital Strike
160

TROOPS

Strike Squad (10 man)
Psycannons x 2
Psyammo
Daemonhammer x 2
240

Strike Squad (10 man)
Psycannons x 2
Psyammo
Daemonhammer x 2
240

Terminator Squad (10 man)
Psycannons x 2
450

HEAVY SUPPORT

Dreadknight
Gatling Psilencer
Heavy Incinerator
195

Dreadknight
Gatling Psilencer
Heavy Incinerator
195

FORTIFICATION

Aegis Defence Line
T-L Quad Gun
100


Hereticus Inq go w/ the servitors behind the ADL. against any psyker they'll be BS10 (ouch). One of the Inq mans the t-l quad gun (Oh dear a BS10 quad gun aimed at an eldar farseer). The Techmarines fire their conversion beamers (or orbital strike depending on what is preferred) and provide 2 ruins with extra cover for the strike squads and terminator squad.

The terminator squad and strike squads can (if wanted) combat squad, but firepower is key here...
FInally the dreadknights deep strike in from reserve to smash vehicles and infantry etc for as long as possible...

An interesting use of the Psyocculum, an overlooked piece of wargear.

The question is would you rather take a prescience Inq for 5 points more - twin-linking everything if you make a psychic test rather than BS 10 but only against psyker units. prescience would possibly be more useful in the list you have as I believe (though am not 100%) that it would allow you to re-roll gets hot on the plasma cannon's.

On another note - I think that arming the Tech's with both OSR's and beamer's is expensive.

Arming Techmarines w/ conversion beamers as well as Orbital Strike is def expensive. But it gives you flexibility. You wouldn't call down an orbital strike down 6" from your guys. but you might fire a conversion beamer.
Could instead change the inquisitors to Malleus, drop the orbital strikes, give malleus inq prescience....and add jokaeros to the servitor squads (1 each)

so HQ and elites would look like this:

Inq (Malleus)
Prescience
Servo Skulls x 3
64

Inq (Malleus)
Presience
Hellrifle
Servo Skulls x 2
76

ELITES

Inq Henchmen Squad (4 man)
3 Servitors w/ Plasma Cannons
1 Jokaero
95

Inq Henchmen Squad (4 man)
3 Servitors w/ Plasma Cannons
1 Jokaero
95

Techmarine
Conversion Beamer
110

Techmarine
Conversion Beamer
110

1 Inq has hellrifle to add some more firepower, other will be on the quad gun so doesn't need a hellrifle...

I love henchmen - far more than Brick loves lamp. There are so many great combinations.

A favourite midfield option is two of these:

OMI / TDA / Psycannon / Psyker

3 Plasma Acolyte's / 6 Psyker's / 1 Mystic / Chimera (Multi-Laser - Heavy Flamer)

I love the thought of identical twin Inq's running around but when I add it all up I can't help feeling that for the points spent I'd really like them to be scoring - so I second guess myself and change one of them to Cortaez.

It's more tactically flexible but then the symmetry of the list is lost.

I'm sure there is a great combination of gunline henchmen to use in conjunction with the new Redoubt fortification. Fluffwise - along the lines of Cortaez being the Dennis Bergkamp of generals in that he has a fear of flying! So there are no flyers in the army just ground defenses. This has the advantage of placing all of your models on the board at the start and out gunning your opponent from range.

Maybe something like this:

Cortaez

Redoubt (2 quad Icarus)

7 Psykers inside using the fire points

A pair of Jokaero and whichever flavour of gun Servitor you prefer, wrapped in Acolytes for protection on the barricades.

3 x Psydread

Allied Manticore sitting behind out of LOS

Just an idea.
