Has anyone figured what is the most we can have in terms of competitive lists now that Traitor Legions is out? Anything goes regarding Allies, I'm talking about pure competition.
(before anyone lashes out to me about fun & fluff, I own over 10k points full of fluff, I play for fun a lot, but I also want to assemble a force which can stand for itself and compete at highly competitive environments as much as possible. I stopped playing 4 years ago and I started again about 2 weeks ago).
I have seen a lot of potential in Death Guard, perhaps some in Emperor's Children, I just can't seem to figure out how to assemble the "pieces of the puzzle". Online research doesn't help, most legion-specific searches bring 30K results -.-
Right now I am considering a Death Guard Warband, with a Bike Lord, a Terminators unit, 2x 5-man CSM in a Rhino, 3x Biker squads and a Havoc squad (most likely with Autocannons) as the core of the army.
However, I am confused. Would I need allies? Is the army core I posted a good base for an as-competitive-as-can-be list? (Perhaps a CAD without the Terminators & Havocs in favor of Obliterators would work as well). Damn, I am confused & overwhelmed.
Post your lists, or links to related articles, I would be grateful!
There are many legions worth to play.. death guard is one of the top for sure. I'll choose the chaos warband instead base cad for 2 reasons:
- obj sec on every unit
- reroll 1s on fnp rolls, morphing your army in necrons with heavy weapons.
And yes.. bike are one of the best units to field. And relentless on havocs make them pretty awesome.
But Death Guard resilience can be pretty useless in these days, depends all on your meta man. If you play usually against D weapons and spamming of space conclaves, then feel no pain loose utility. In addiction relics of DG are very "meh".
There's many combinations, maybe too many with this book.
Have you notice black legion?
The warband allow roll for deepstrike in turn 1.. no need roll if your lord have deep strike.
You potentially assault on turn one by using raptors talons formation with black legion warband and deliver your nasty axelord in the opponent's face.
Just for example
