    What point level are we talking about? Because I was sitting here thinking, 'what is the least Tau thing I can bring,' and the answer I came up with was, 'Deathwing!'

    So I played against another Blood Angels army at 2000 and it went a little better though I made some big mistakes. One of them being allocating all of my power weapon wounds from my Wolf Lord and my one power weapon Grey Wolf onto Dante instead of shredding the assault squad that I was locked into combat with. My Thunderwolves were in a bad spot on the board and my Dreadnought got dropped turn one. My Long Fangs did decently but out of 32 Frag missile hits on an assault squad, I wounded 14 and only killed 4 out of like 12.

    The one high light were my three Thunderwolves with SS and TH completely decimating Mephiston after I saved against 4 of his wounds. It was an awesome game that I lost.

    Hive Guard are the best AA in the Tyranid book, no question.

    Tyranids don't exactly do low AP at the best of times (it's really only Psychic things and bio-plasma which do I think) so AP4 isn't that bad. Plus you have a str8 T6 BS4 2W 24" gun which can ignore interevening terrain and deny cover save from same for 50pts, they are awesome.


    I got to use my Deldar today now that I've scraped 1000pts together. Took part in a 2v2 with 3000pts on both sides (my partner backed in more Terminators than I am ever comfortable with, but at least he was on my side!) The Voidraven missiles are great fun, there weren't a lot of armoured targets to pop with the lances so I got to Fire Everything! at some space marines. 4 str7 large blasts that re-roll to wound are not to be sneered at...

    As long as it's not 1 or 0, AP doesn't make any difference against vehicles; all that matters is raw S, and 8 is pretty good from that PoV.

    It's not too tricky to make Hive/tyrant guard from the basic plastic warrior (same for any 40mm tyranid really). In this case you just hunch them over, use the big rending claws as gorilla hands and bulk out the carapace (or use a spare Carnifex carapace) give it a big gun with some flesh hooks in it and your'e good to go.

    So, MD Warhams recap.

    We usually play 500 points, so we can do multiple games/everyone can bring it. Today we did 3x500 point lists against @Gabriel_Pitt, who brought 1500 points of Deathwing. Deathwing. Against 500 point lists that are pretty devoid of AP2 weaponry. Anyways, it was an epic game. He had a cyclone termie that survived, despite its brethren falling, and then it gobbled up an entire Guard blob squad. He took a lot of punishment. The game ended with a margin of 1 KP. At the end of our turn, an IG Platoon Command squad charged in and slew the last termie, who failed his 2+ save. It was pretty epic in both directions, Gabe's got pics.

    Platoon command squads are quickly becoming one of my favorate IG infantry units. They're just so cost effective and can spit out so much death if they stay in thier chimera.

    Melee killing terminators with crappy guard units is always hilarious. Good ol' knife to the eye!
    One of my ratling squads deserved a commendation for killing two marines in close combat before breaking and running off the table. More than they killed with thier rifles! *rolleyes*

    How does this look for a 1500 list? Both Grey Hunter packs have a Rune Priest and Wolf Guard Pack Leader with them. I'll probably run the Razorback for the Long Fangs empty and just try to blow shit up. I wanted to add a Dreadnaught and Wolf Lord to the list but it definitely wont fit. I also wanted to give the Rune Priests a Wolftooth Necklace but I'm not sure how to clear up 21 points to afford it. I'd also like to run some Thunderwolves Calvary in the list after how well they did Friday night once they finally got into combat but to run three it would cost 330 points.

    I plan on making a series of lists, I like where my 2000 point list is at, I'm gonna tweak it here and there as I play games with it but I would like to get a decent 1500, 1750, and 1850 list going so that I can play pretty much anyone I come across since most people at the store I play at seem to favor 1500-1750 lists. I wish the store would do an escalation league or something, they sound like a lot of fun.

    I had my 'I have enough termies to make an all 2+ save list, so I shall' Deathwing list. 2 TH/LC squads, 2 Cyclone squads, and 1 Heavy flamer and 1 Assault cannon squad. 31 models total. The mission was Annhilation, and originally, I was going to play my 6 dread 1.5k list, but I thought, "No way, against 500 point lists, that'd be way too hard..." Of course, what I didn't think of at the time was that my 6 dread list had 9-11 kp in it, depending on combat squads. Whereas the Deathwing list was 7 KP, and with everyone having a 2+ save, it gave those points up VERY slowly, as the mighty Cyclonator demonstrated below.
    Spoiler:
    I had one squad in reserve that REFUSED to come onto the table until turn 5, when they HAD to. I wasn't in a good place right then, because the end of turn 4 saw the last of my other units wiped out, and I was down 4 KP to 6. If I wanted to win, I needed to catch up before the end of turn 5, so I took a risk and teleported my last squad in right into the middle of Mich's IG (risky, considering how I'd come within a half inch of mishapping two squads earlier in the game), obliterating his veterans. I just needed one more KP to tie, so EVERYTHING the other three had was poured into that squad, dropping four out of five terminators. With a chimera, a sentinel, and the IG platoon command in easy range of it, it was almost guranteed if I survived to turn 6, I'd get that KP I needed. So Mich threw the platoon command at it, inflicted _1_ wound, and I rolled my save, sending the die bouncing across the table, up off the edge, flipping into the carpet with the '1' facing straight up.

    Game over. :lol:

    So there was a leak of the upcoming Sisters of Battle WD codex which got reposted to warseer, and having read over the first part (no points or unit options until next month) I am pumped. They still have Rage, but I can't wait to try using Penitent Engines and Sisters Repentia again. A whole lot of neat stuff in there.

    So Altmann is a bad motherfucker. Today him and I spent the afternoon building 2 venoms, 2 ravagers and priming:

    -20x Kabalite Warriors
    -20x Wyches
    -3x Reavers
    -2x Ravagers
    -3x Venoms
    -2x Raiders

    We also used Army Painter's primer, so everyone is already base coated as well. Just need to wash and highlight!

    Some say that the Blood Angels are tainted: that they harbour a dark secret. I know this to be true. I have seen the infamous Death Company: wild-eyed and foam-mouthed berserkers who tear their enemies limb from limb, crush skulls with a single blow, snap spines and rip out inner organs. I have seen the Sanguinary Priests: the passing of blood filled chalices from lip to lip, heard their wracking lamentations of Sanguinus's death. I have watched their rituals: mighty warriors daubing their armour in the blood of their foes, heard them crying for vengeance against the enemies of the Emperor.

    Running a Tyranid army these days without Gargoyles should be illegal. For 8 points, you get a flying Termagant with toxin sacs, adrenal glands and almost old rending (auto wound on 6's to hit). The only downside is they can't claim objectives.

    If they ever put some variety back in the Nids with a new codex, they really should do an option to have scything talon armed Gargoyles.

  • FroThulhuFroThulhu Registered User regular
    The way the did variety with the 3rd ed nids was... not my favorite thing. But yes, scything gargoyles would be tittyfish.

    You mean 4th ed, right? Because the 3rd ed list had no variety, just like the current list.

    The only issue I had with the old customisation was how easy it was to confuse the fuck out of your opponent and easily cheat by 'accidentally' paying the wrong amount for some biomorphs or bringing biomorphs a unit shouldn't due to every single unit being modified in some way. But I never heard many complaints about that.

    For people who don't keep an eye on Fantasy - GW are still expanding on their new pet project, generic heroes in plastic in clampacks. There's now a Herals of Tzeentch on a disk in plastic. I really hope they start this for 40k, there's some generic HQ's that would be better off as plastic than finecast.

  • FroThulhuFroThulhu Registered User regular
    No, the original 3rd ed dex introduced biomorphs and the mutation table. It was unfortunate.
