1850 ITC War Convocation (AKA Entering the Proving Grounds)

Post  Spamus Eatus on Wed Dec 02, 2015 1:16 pm

Okay, so this list is for a possible big thing later next year, or if you people are insane enough to want to play against it.

OATHSWORN DETACHMENT
Knight Gallant 325 (365)
Thunderstrike Gauntlet, Reaper Blade, Stormspear Pod

SKITARII BATTLE MANIPLE
10 Skitarii Vanguard 100 (270)
Alpha: Arc Pistol, Arc Maul, Digital Weapons, Conversion Field, The Pater Radium
3x Plasma Calivers, Omnispex

10Skitarii Rangers 120 (235)
Alpha: Tazer Goad, Conversion Field, Digital Weapons
3x Tranuranic Arquebus

5 Infiltrators 185 (240)
Princeps: Conversion Field, Digital Weapons, Elder Nikola's Skull

5 Ruststalkers 160 (210)
Princeps: Conversion Field, Digital Weapons, Dataspike, The Omniscent Mask

Dunecrawler 90 (165)
Icarus Array, Cognis Stubber, Mindscanner Probe, Cognis Manipulator

Ironstrider Ballistarii 55 (75)
TL Cognis Lascannon

ADMECH BATTLE CONGREGATION
Tech Priest Dominus 105 (170)
Eradication Ray, Macrostubber, Dataspike, Poweraxe
Conversion Field, Digital Weapons, Infoslave Skull
The Scryerskull Perspicatus

3x Kataphron Breachers 150 (180)
Heavy Arc Rifles, Hydraulic Claws

3x Kataphron Breachers 150 (180)
Torsion Cannons, Hydraulic Claws

Kastellan Battle Maniple 410 (510)
Datasmith: Gamma Pistol, Powerfist, Dataspike, Conversion Field, Digital Weapons, Infoslave Skull
The Ramient of the Technomartyr
3x Kastellan Robots
TL Heavy Phosphor Blasters, Carapace Heavy Phosphor Blaster


TOTAL COST 1850
ACTUAL COST 2600

COMMAND BENEFITS:
Techpriest may reroll warlord trait
May re use a single canticle of the omnissiah during a game
All Skitarii units have Crusader and Scout
All units in the list contribute towards and may use canticles of the omnissiah
All weapons and wargear options are FREE
No "Gets Hot"

THE PLAN:
Blast everything to tiny radioactive bits and leave the ground a scorched wasteland, basically.

The Knight is meant to charge in a full tilt and get into CC and draw fire from the rest of the army. It was kept cheap to maximize points for other stuff. Since all units benefit from Canticles, I gain some insane bonuses, for instance I can reroll ALL shooting for the entire army. The skitarii can still use their doctrines, so are able to reroll hits on 2+. It's an incredibly efficient killing machine of a list. I'd feel bad using it in normal games but apparently these ITC things are for your A-game, so here we go, have at it!

How in the hell do you compete with that? I don't think I could make a Tau list at 1850 that would even come close. Even if I managed to get a Ta'unar.

Oh so here's some more goodies: The Techpriest has a relic that lets me nominate any enemy vehicle on the board, no LOS. All of my units can then reroll armor pen results against that target, or try turn glances into pens.

Flyers? Screw em. Icarus dunecrawler to rip em apart, and if that doesn't work, I can use the Ironstrider with its TL hitting on 5's lascannon, or fire 9TL, 9normal S6 shots from the Killbots, which hit on 5's with the Datasmith's relic. Haywire Breachers can also work in a pinch.

You get 750 points free? Damn.

Any your army practically never misses, correct?

How about invisible units? Do you have enough weight of fire to blast them anyway?

I can hopefully solve the invisibility either by sheer volume of rerollable fire, or cognis weapons. Hitting on 5's is huge for snapfire.

Tried making a list to fight this. Did not work. Sure lots of pie plates and low AP and lots of monstrous creatures but no D for that Knight.

None of the StrD seeker missiles? Even then if you have str 7 shooting the knight doesn't like that. Glancing on 6's and only a 4+ invul on one facing.

Cognis doesn't give u a benefit to snapfire, only overwatch.

P 72 Skitarii Codex:

Cognis: When a model makes snapshots (including overwatch) with a weapon that has the Cognis rule, its BS is counted as 2 instead of 1 Smile

Didn't think of using a stormsurge. Probably because I don't own one. :S

EDIT: I stuffed a R'varna in instead (because I have one of those. Razz)
