2000pts Brand Spankin' New Deathwing!
« on: October 13, 2020, 01:40:42 AM »
First crack at a list with the new codex, and I had to give the Deathwing a try. With the changes to Inner Circle, I had to go back to my first love.  My Terminators have been sitting on the shelf for far too long!

***One thing to keep in mind is that I am assuming when the FAQ drops, they will (logically) be adding that units which receive the Deathwing and Ravenwing keywords will also be granted Inner Circle and Jink respectively.

Captain in Terminator Armour
  • Storm Bolter
  • Relic Blade
  • Chapter Master
  • [Relic: Key of Achrabael or Master-Crafted Relic Blade]

Deathwing Apothecary
  • Chief Apothecary
  • [Warlord Trait: Selfless Healer]
  • 125pts
Fast Attack
3 Land Speeder Tornadoes
  • Assault Cannon & Heavy Bolters
  • 240pts
3 Outriders
  • 135pts
Total Points: 2000
Model Count: 35
Command Points: 7

At it's heart, it is a slow list. But I am hoping that with the changes to Inner Circle, the buff to the Apothecary, and the Stand Firm stratagem to get the Terminators who start on the board where they need to be.

The Ravenwing are going to swing around the flanks to threaten objectives, and the two units of Deep Striking Terminators give me options as well. Also, the threat of coming in off the Combined Assault Stratagem is something to keep in mind.

The two things I am undecided for is with the Chapter Master.  Do I go for more attacks with higher strength, or give the Relic Blade a bump in the Damage department?  Both are very tempting options.  Similarly, there is the choice between Storm of Fire and Rites of War.  Increasing the offensive potential of that big unit of Terminators is insanely tempting, but so is making them ObSec...

Decisions, decisions...
If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.
Well I always liked the globals...
I knew I had fans!!!

"Dark Angels are Traitors" is the 40k equivalent of Flat Earthers.  You can provide all of the proof you want that says otherwise, but people just can't let it go...
