1250pt List for upcoming Return to Locara: Tournament & Campaign

So with the upcoming Return to Locara: Tournament & Campaign I am putting together a 1250pt list. Here is my list so far. Keep in mind I have play tested it 4 times, and it started out very differently. I had the Sorcerer in with the terminators (in termy armor) originally, and also had the CSM as a 10 man. Splitting them and removing the armor on the Sorcerer allows the Sorcerer to join any squad and give me another possible scoring unit. I have also been contemplating taking 2 more Obliterators in exchange for the Vindicator, but it has proven its worth in about 50% of the games (kill points wise) and has been a HUGE distraction/target in all the games. I'm really torn as to which is best. I plan to reserve the Vindicator always, because it can move on and shoot, and the Terminators will be deep striking because I have Icons on two units, so I won't have to worry about scatter.



Here is the list so far:



HQ

Chaos Sorcerer – Mark of Slaanesh, Lash of Submission – 125pts

TROOPS

Noise Marines x5 – Sonic Blasters x 4, Blastmaster x 1, Personal Icon – 165pts

Noise Marines x8 – Sonic Blasters x 7, Noise Champion w/ Power Weapon and Doom Siren, Personal Icon, Mounted in Rhino – 280pts

Chaos Space Marines x5 – Melta Gun, Icon of Slaanesh, Aspiring Champion w/ Power weapon, Mounted in Rhino – 175pts

Chaos Space Marines x5 – Plasma Gun – 90pts

ELITES

Chaos Terminators x5 – Icon of Slaanesh, Heavy Flamer, Chain Fist x1, Power Fist x1, Combi-Melta x1 - 195pts

HEAVY SUPPORT

Vindicator w/ Demonic Possession– 145pts

Obliterator x1 – 75pts

1250pts

With 5 points free, I could give the other Noise Marine squad a personal icon too - I guess I can add that now. *EDIT*

Friday Night Fights & Project Ultra for WWPD

This week on the virtual battlefield, it was an all Infantry affair as I continued to test Rob's Canadians for the upcoming 2013 Historicon tournament. We rolled up 'No Retreat' as the mission. Seeing as we both field foot footsoldier lists, we had to roll over who would attack. I came up with the higher number after Rob rolled a big fat 1. After choosing which end he would defend, we began deployment and objective placements. Enjoy the video of the game and I happened to take some pics as well covering most of the action.

Looking at the board layout, Rob chose the best side from which to defend. No matter which way I wanted to approach from, there were going to be a lot of slow moving anti-tank guns and bog checks moving 4" at a time in order to get range on those dug in Canadians. I have to say after being bombarded nearly every turn, rocket batteries are the way to go for maximum effect on target.

I had a hard time breaking through all the terrain to get my guns go…

A forum?!

Who ever said imitation is the highest for of flattery? I guess I just did. So, I thought it was time we started our own forum, accessible by the public, to talk all things TableTop Tactician. Lists reviews, events/news, anything people want to chat about - so have at it!

So hope on over the to the Forum table and introduce yourself and get posting!

VERSION 4 Flames Test Game 1 DAK vs Desert Rats

"What do you say, old boy, shall we go kick the Jerries out of Africa?" Monty

Using the WWPD rules compilation, and stats and such from the preview copy of the rulebook that stores have, plus some from the latest WGI, we apply our Team Yankee prowess to run a Test game of Version 4.  TO make equivalent lists, I used V3 points for both (1340pts) and the DAK force comes out at 82 pts using V4 points.  Video with our opinions at bottom of article.   Lets see the lists:
