List for 1000 pt tournament
« on: August 25, 2016, 12:11:38 PM »
So I'm looking at participating in a 1000 pt tournament in a couple weeks and had a couple lists I was considering and looking for feedback on.  So without further ado, here are the lists:

List 1:

CAD [661]
  Commander [128] - 2x Missile Pod, Drone Controller, Target Lock
  Cadre Fireblade [points omitted]

  Firewarrior Strike Team [118] - 12x Fire Warriors, DS-8 w/ SMS
  Kroot Carnivores [70] - 10x Kroot w/ Sniper Rounds

  Crisis Team [104] - 2x Shas'ui each w/ 2x Plasma Rifle

  Drones [points omitted] - 4x Marker Drones

  Hammerhead [points omitted] - Ion, drones

Optimized Stealth Cadre [330]
  Stealth Team - 2x w/ Burst Cannon, 1x w/ Fusion Blaster
  Stealth Team - 2x w/ Burst Cannon, 1x w/ Fusion Blaster
  Ghostkeel - Ion Raker, TL Fusion Blaster

List 2:

Hunter Contingent
  Hunter Cadre [670]
    Commander [128] - 2x Missile Pod, Drone Controller, Target Lock
    Cadre Fireblade [points omitted]

    Firewarrior Strike Team [73] - 7x Fire Warriors, DS-8 w/ SMS
    Firewarrior Strike Team [points omitted] - 6x Fire Warriors
    Kroot Carnivores [70] - 10x Kroot w/ Sniper Rounds

    Crisis Team [52] - 1x Shas'ui w/ 2x Plasma Rifle
    Crisis Team [52] - 1x Shas'ui w/ 2x Plasma Rifle

    Drones [points omitted] - 4x Marker Drones

    Hammerhead [points omitted] - Ion, drones

  Optimized Stealth Cadre [330]
    Stealth Team - 2x w/ Burst Cannon, 1x w/ Fusion Blaster
    Stealth Team - 2x w/ Burst Cannon, 1x w/ Fusion Blaster
    Ghostkeel - Ion Raker, TL Fusion Blaster

Obviously the 2 lists are almost identical.  Just CAD vs Hunter Contingent, well that and having one more Firewarrior body.

The two lists will more or less play the same way.  The commander will join the marker drones.  The fireblade will join the firewarriors w/ DS8.  Aside from that the units will hunt the things they are good at hunting.

In the hunter contingent I'll be looking at the kroot and firewarriors combining fire on the same targets for the bonus BS.  The Ghostkeel will combine with the stealth suits for the double BS boost.  The hammerhead and crisis will combine shots as needed.

Any thoughts as to which list is better or any recommendations for changes?  I'm considering doing missile pods on the crisis suits instead of the plasma.  But as I said, any thoughts are appreciated.

My initial thoughts are as follows:

1) The Hunter Contingent is pretty much always worth it over the CAD. Objective secured is not as good as coordinated Firepower or Feints and Lures and so on.

2) If you're taking the Hunter Contingent, I'm not married to the idea of a Cadre Fireblade (which you don't need if you're already taking a commander, which you are). Strike him for more Firewarriors in the second list. That will pay off in terms of keeping those units on the board and alive.

3) In the debate between plasma rifles and missile pods on XV-8s, I usually recommend taking both. If you have to pick, though, this army lacks in AP2, so taking the Plasma Rifles is highly recommended.

4) Love the Optimised Stealth Cadre, but not crazy about Fusions on the Stealths. Given the Wall of Mirrors rule, you won't need fusions against anything with rear armor 10 (i.e. most vehicles) anyway, and against infantry they weaken the squad's overall impact. Devote those points to something else.

That's what I've got so far. Hope it's helpful.
