Draigowing 2000 (for the truly insane or hardcore)

Post by Corennus on Thu Jan 09, 2014 2:50 am

Just a silly idea for those with not many terminator models but a dream of fielding a Draigowing:

HQ

Draigo
275

Librarian
Teleport Homer
The Summoning
The Shrouding
Sanctuary
Nemesis Warding Stave
215



TROOPS

Paladin Squad (10 man)
Psycannons x 2
Incinerators x 2
Nemesis Halberds x 4
Daemonhammers x 2
Nemesis Force Swords x 3
Brotherhood Banner
Psyammo
645

Paladin Squad (10 man)
Psycannons x 2
Incinerators x 1
Nemesis Halberds x 4
Daemonhammers x 2
Nemesis Force Swords x 3
Brotherhood Banner
Psyammo
640

Terminator Squad (5 man)
Psycannon
225

2000


Draigo Librarian and terminator squad start on the board. LIbrarian casts shrouding so unit is much harder to hit.

Turn 2 both paladin squads come in (combat squadded if necessary) and you see how long you can last.

I didn't say it would be easy Brother. That's where the fun comes in. Twisted Evil

This list is what I believe the novels depict the GK as being. I like it A LOT.

When did flamers get scary?

I have just realized that I am too poor for this hobby!
Even a list with under 30 models makes my wallet cringe  Sad Razz

Well truth be told I haven't played against daemons since 5th ed. when Flamers were truly scary. But they're still not a pushover.

And the scary part was whole squads of strike squads taken down by 3 flamers...

flamers of tzeentch have become one of the worst choices. they only got the flamer now wich is S 4 ap 4 and has the warpfire special rule wich does the following: if a unit gets 1 or more unsaved wounds by a weapon with this rule it has to do a toughness test at the end of the phase. if the test is failed, the unit suffers d3 wounds that ignore armor and cover. if the unit passes the toughness test however it gains the feel no pain special rule. if a unit allready got the feel no pain special rule, it will be improved by 1.

there is many in the daemon codex that counters draigowings. best thing to do is put in many power armored GK as daemons struggle to get viable ap 3 weapons, and those weapons that can melt power armor are also able to melt terminator armour aswell. same goes for close combat. a champion in a unit can get a ap 2 weapon that strikes at initative for a mere 10 points. every character in the daemon book has acess to those awesome AP weapons in close combat.

hmmmmm so mass power armour....so a mass purifier list would work better. but for those with a terminator fetish I think that list above would be fun to play (see how long you can last!)

The more we talk about how the odds are stacked against this list, the more I like it!!!!!!
To me it embodies what the GK are all about! Which is facing unbeatable odds and coming out on top!!! Twisted Evil

The chapter has more knights in terminator armour than power armour. If the Grey Knights have a mass of anything it should be in tactical dreadnought armour.

Makes sense to me.  Dead soldiers can't become veterans.  
Unless they're Dark Eldar.  Or Daemons.  I think I see where you get these ideas...

thats what really bugs me, why are the veteran GK, who wear power armour has lower leadership than the "newbie" terminator... but lets not get off track here.

had a game against nids and well... they crumble so easily its not even funny. the new nids have to play more defensively than ever before and with long range you can take them out one after another while still controling your side and the middle of the board.

I always thought of the tyranids as being an expensive army because of the sheer number of troops you need to get to have a balanced army. At 1500 points I'd expect a decent army to have 120+ gaunts, a bunch of synapse and the normal hulking monstrous creatures.

I'd certainly favour buying and painting the terminator force.
