2 lists I'm playing with
« on: March 31, 2016, 09:49:34 AM »
So i have two lists I'm playing with and I'm wondering what you guys think. Both are 1850 pts, the first one is a Blood Angels list with a Death Star the second is a Raven Guard list with elements I've never used, my first list from the vanilla codex.


Baal Strike Force

Dante                                                                     220
Astorath                                                                  165
Sanguinor                                                                 200

Death Company: x15 Chain Sword, Bolt Pistol, jump pack                    345

Tactical Squad x10: Heavy Flamer, Flamer, Rhino                           210
Tactical Squad x10: Heavy Flamer, Flamer, Rhino                           210
Scout Squad                                                                75

Assault Squad x5: Meltagun, Melta Bombs, Inferno Pistol, Power Sword      140
Assault Squad x5: Meltagun, Melta Bombs, Inferno Pistol, Power Sword      140

Predator: Autocannon, Lasconnons                                          125


Stormlance Battle Demi-Company

Shadow Captain Shrike                                                     185

Tactical Squad x10: Meltagun, Missile Launcher, Flakk Missiles, Rhino     220
Tactical Squad x10: Meltagun, Missile Launcher, Flakk Missiles, Rhino     220
Tactical Squad x10: Meltagun, Missile Launcher, Flakk Missiles, Rhino     220

Assault Squad x10: x3 Plasma Pistols, Power Sword, Melta Bombs            215

Devastator Squad x5: x4 Missile Launchers, x4 Flakk Missiles              185

Shadowstrike Kill Team

Scout Squad:                                                               65
Scout Squad:                                                               65
Scout Squad:                                                               65
Scout Squad:                                                               65

Vanguard Veteran Squad: Melta Bombs                                       115
Vanguard Veteran Squad: Melta Bombs                                       115
Vanguard Veteran Squad: Melta Bombs                                       115


Both armies come to 1850 points, the Blood Angels all 3 of the characters go into the Death Company unit, so on the charge they'll have 6 attacks, re-roll hits and misses, 5 initiative and 5 strength, Dante will be 7 attacks, 7 initiative, 7 strength and gives them Hit and Run, and you can see where this is going. The Raven Guard like i said, It's got units I've never used and rules I think will be fun, like assaulting vanguard after they deep strike. Anyways, lemme know what you think and or any tweaks you'd do to the lists or which you'd use over the other.

Do you often play against Helldrakes? If not, I'd ditch all the Flakk Missiles (and probably missile launchers in general) as they are super-duper expensive and not very good at their job. The missile launcher is really now the poor cousin of heavy weapons choices--can't really kill vehicles and is only very good against light infantry.

For the points, you're better off kitting out your sergeant, buying a Lascannon, or, seeing how cutting all of them will save you a bundle, you could go and buy a whole additional unit instead.

You know what, I forgot to put jump packs on the assault squad, so I had to make some changes, and with your input did some you mentioned as well, also all the sergeants are veterans


Stormlance Battle Demi-Company

Captain: Artificer Armor, Raven's Fury, Swiftstrike & Murder, Digital Weapons....170

Tactical Squad x10: Meltagun, Lascannon, Rhino....215
Tactical Squad x10: Meltagun, Lascannon, Rhino....215
Tactical Squad x10: Meltagun, Lascannon, Rhino....215

Assault Squad x10: x3 Plasma Pistol, Melta Bombs, Powersword.....245

Devastator Squad: Combi-Grav, x4 Lascannon......170

Shadowstrike Kill Team

Scout Squad: x5 Sniper Rifle, Camocloaks.....80
Scout Squad:.................65
Scout Squad:.................65
Scout Squad:.................65

Vanguard Veteran Squad: Melta Bomb........115
Vanguard Veteran Squad: Melta Bomb........115
Vanguard Veteran Squad: Melta Bomb........115

1850 points with a little more options in there. I replaced Shrike with a basic captain, he seems more killy on paper, not sure on the table though as I've never used Raven Guard or fought them before.

With rg you're better going with the pinion battle company I think to get extra rules. Meltagun / lc seems odd. Short and long range. But I suppose you can combat squad. If you take the pinion then you have to take a devastator squad. Put the lascannons in there and the scout squad gives them ic.

Also I don't think you need 4 scout squads in t be shadow strike formation.

Just because you can, doesn't mean that you should.
