1500 tentative list

Ok, this list assumes I can get the models in time, paint them, and find a suitable model to make a landing spore.

HQ

Hive Tyrant, Bone sword, Whip, Heavy Venom Cannon, 190 Yeah expensive for a gun platform, but I need an HQ unit, and my Tervigon is going to be troops. Tyrant will sit in cover and fire range 48 lascannon small blasts all day long, possibly on my backfield objectives, these are still going to be a bitch for a fast troops choice to kill to claim my obj.. more likely, we will contest. 190

ELITES

2 zoanthropes in a landing spore. These deep strike down and hopefully kill off that big mean land raider type vehicle. 160 points

3 Hive Guard. hmm bs 4, high toughness, and a range 24 str 8 2 shot gun that doesnt need LOS? yes pls. Goodbye Vehicle squadrons 150 points

Troops

Tervigon with Adrenal Glands, Thorn Blast. So checking my rulebook, these things ARE scoring units. wtf. monstrous creature that spawns 3d6 termagants per turn, 'spent' on any double though. Adrenal glands affects broods within 6, and is also a synapse creature. If I had more termagant models, I would have 2 of these. 170 points

24 Termagants, first off, I love termagants, have alwasy loved them, and now they have range 18 guns, and are 5 points per, and each brood makes 1 tervigon a troops choice. Sign me up. 120 points

3 12 strong genestealer broods. 1 brood has broodlord and scything talons, the other 2 are just stock. Genestealers can infiltrate or outflank, and with broodlords can now fleet. Very nice
526 points total.

At this point I am at 1316 points, which I could spend 170 points on a Mawlock, just because the model is kickass, plusit comes out of the ground for that "OH CRAP" moment for my opponent, or i round out my 6th troops choice with a brood of 5 warriors, 4 with devourers, 1 with barbed strangler, for 165 points to bring me to 1500. The warriors I can field right now, so I guess if I cant get the mawlock done in time determines what I bring to a certain extent.

Assuming I go with Mawlock, model count is 3 monstrous creatures, 5 medium creatures, 60 small creatures, + whatever the Tervigon creates. pretty scary for 1500 points I'd say, and I'm not spamming anything either, unless I get lucky with the Tervigon.

Comments

  1. Nice list can't wait to see it at the tournament. I would like to see the Mawlock in action so you best get it painted a modelled quickly =)

  2. Which 2 free powers, would you take with the Hive Tyrant?

    Heard termagaunts would have fleshborers as standard, so they are 12" range. Few extra points you can upgrade.

    Hypnotic stare on the broodlord, could come in handy.

    I think the Mawloc would be good addition, as it rules make it very 'Nid like, IMHO.

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:
