Any suggestions on this 1,000 Point list?
« on: April 17, 2012, 02:53:31 AM »
Hello! I came up with this list while at the Fire Dept on my down time and wanted to know what you guys think?

Farseer- Guide- 75pts

5 Dragons- 80pts
Serpent- Stones, Twin Shuriken Cannon- 110pts

5 Dragons- 80pts
Serpent- Stones, Twin Shuriken Cannon- 110pts

5 Dragons- 80pts
Serpent- Twin Shuriken Cannon- 100pts

5 Dire Avengers- 60pts

5 Dire Avengers- 60pts

Falcon- Shuriken Cannon- 120pts

Falcon- Shuriken Cannon- 120pts

Total- 995pts

I had to take off 1 of the stones from the serpents because I simply did not have any other place to pull it from with out taking out a whole unit since everything is for the most part "bare". This list is simply to try out something I have never used before, which is minimum squads. I always run full size squads, with the exception of Dragons which I usually run at 7. I know most say 5 or 6 is fine but I am just weird like that, that I need 1 more in the squad to make me feel comfortable lol. I have never ran a DAVU falcon before or a DAVU anything really. I always run my Avengers at 10 with Exarch and either Close Combat specialists or Shooty specialists. So let me know what you think. Thanks a bunch!

    This would be nice and hard to kill thanks to the mass of vehicles packed into a 1k list. It also seems geared toward fighting similar lists to itself and the ever present SM land raider w/ full termies and a named HQ choice backed up by minimal everything else. I can see your strategy to avoid melee by keeping on the move as well.
    The only problem is if you end up fighting an infantry army with some anti-tank weapons you'll be hard pressed to cope. The sheer numbers you'll be facing will make running difficult. With missiles as they currently are, having 4-6 in any given infantry army will eat this list alive. Once you lose the falcons (your squishiest tanks here due to no holo-fields) you will have just lost roughly 1/2 your capacity to deal with infantry. The other 1/2 being the shurikens on the serpents.
    Fortunately, people nowadays seem to enjoy fielding mech/vehicle heavy lists and view infantry lists as more of a hold over from previous editions or a "challenge accepted" type thing. This should do well pending your local meta game. Just avoid using this list against battle-suit/infantry Tao, there will be nothing left of it :P.
For me: 16.667% chance of failure equates to a 83.334% failure rate.

I generally don't like these types of lists as they are just so boring, both to face and to play.
However, I'd swap that farseer for a vanilla autarch, which helps if using the reserves strategy, and allows you to put stones on that last serpent.
