Potential Astro list

Post  Aegwymourn on Thu Jan 02, 2014 11:00 pm

So I was thinking about Astronomi-con the other day and brainstomed a list. I highly doubt I'll be able to go in Feb, just due to having used most of my husband points to play league games/tournaments here (and the fact that they still haven't released any sort of schedule/venue information). But I still like thinking about and constructing lists. So here is what I came up with for Grey Knights that would be interesting to play.


HQ - Coteaz - 100 (warlord - re-roll reserves warlord trait)

HQ - Ordos Malleus Inq. - TDA; Psycannon; Psyker (lvl 1) = 110

Elite - Techmarine - Orbital Strike Relay = 140

Troop - GK SS x10 - 2x Psycannon = 220
DT - Razorback - Psybolt Am. = 50

Troop - GK SS x10 - 2x Psycannon = 220
DT - Razorback - Psybolt Am. = 50

Troop - Henchmen Warband - 6 warrior acolytes with 3x plasma = 54
DT - Chimera = 55

Troop - Henchmen Warband - 6 warrrior acolytes with 3x melta = 54
DT - Chimera = 55

FA - Stormraven - TL - Multi-melta; TL - Assault Cannon; Hurricane bolters; Psybolt Am. = 255

Heavy - Dreadnought - 2xTL Autocannons; Psybolt Am. = 135

= 1498

Gives me 4-6 scoring units. Decent amount of dakka from all the storm bolters, hvy bolters, multi-lasers and 5 psycannons. Lots of vehicles to hide in if I play against Tau/Hellturkies. I have good AA from the Stromraven. I lack a little bit of AT although the OSR from the techmarine could put the hurting with a prescienced str10/ap1 small blast. Also have strong psychic defense in the form of lots of stuff being a psyker/the aegis/greater aegis. Upside is that I own everything except for the Stormraven (Darren didn't have one when I was there for the boxing week sale  Sad )

I'd be tempted to bring my Highlander list. Suffers -2 (-1 for over 300 HQ's, -1 for over 300 Heavy).

This list suffers -1 from to many points of dedicated transports as far as I can tell.

What did you bring to Highlander? Eldar?

Farseer, Asurman

20 Guardians w\ a Spear Warlock
5 Avengers in a Serpent with an Exarch (would switch to Dire Sword instead of Shimmershield)
5 Avengers on foot
10 Warp Spiders w\ an Exarch
Fireprism
Wraith Knight w\ Scatter Laser & Suncannon.

For most Astro missions, almost the whole list is scoring...

Yea I dunno if I could handle that list with this one. Without any sort of barrage I'd have to try and sandwich your guardian blob. Although Warp Spiders are a lot less scary with warp quake. Would be interesting to say the least.

Well warp spiders dont deepstrike too much least when i play them. With a 3+ armor save they are fairly durable, if you're careful and they're so bloody fast i usually start them on the table in my games. Everyone plays a little different though Smile

I used them for a long time since "back in the day" you had unlimited storage. Now not so much.

Not sure what to think of this

http://40kegger.blogspot.ca/2014/01/40kegger-6.html?spref=fb

but it could be interesting Smile

Don't think we could take it as seriously as we do/did astro, but its beer and 40k.

~~~~~edit

lol. quote fromt he guy who runs it

A lot of armies have some kind of "fuck you" unit available, and I think people are entitled to use them in moderation. There is the Kheres Pattern Contemptor Skyfiring thing, for example. People take one because they are cool and they cause some serious damage. And I take a Heldrake for the same reasons. But I think it is now safe to say that Chaos players should ever only take ONE Heldrake. If you take 2 Heldrakes, you are an asshole. If you take 3 Heldrakes, you seriously need to worry about the size of your penis and consider herbal enhancement.

I'm just saying... Heldrakes are just that good now. If you take more than one against me at a friendly tournament (basically all the tournaments in Winnipeg), I will give you a shitty Sportsmanship score. We can still be friends, but I will think you are an asshole.
