Haha takes all sorts. They say that you use mortar to kill infantry, artillery guns to kill mortars and rocket artillery to kill guns. I guess the next escalation is either a cruise missile, airstrikes or orbital bombardment?

I need Ignores Cover (long-range would be a bonus) in the list, pure and simple. That Manticore needed to kill 5 Scouts with camo in a reinforced Ruin and it couldn't do it with 4 shots (6 blasts between them). 2+ cover is sweet, but that was the last straw.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

They are a good tank, but are they a better option than playing my Battle Tanks as Eradicators (or for that matter just playing one BT and one Erad.)?

I like the durability of the Leman Russ chassis over the Chimera personally but have no experience with either tank.

New variant list incoming, dude wants to rematch me with his CSM/Daemon army. Might actually bust out my Bane Wolf for extra crispy traitors.

OK. So the Vendetta is out because too often my opponents have no ability to deal with them and I don't really like Fliers that much so I'm fine to drop it. There will be plenty of killy left...though I've yet to address my Ignores Cover issue, this guy's army is so gloriously painted it would be a crime to proxy stuff against it. I'm thinking:

Pask in a Punisher - hull lascannon and sponson multi-meltas
Executioner - hull lascannon, sponson plasma cannons
3x Veteran squads - 3x meltaguns, carapace armour, and Chimera for each

Bane Wolf

Armoured Sentinel - lascannon

Battle Tank - hull and sponson heavy bolters, camo netting

Battle Tank - hull and sponson heavy bolters, camo netting


Still a lot more upgrades than I usually use. I feel like the chem cannon and Sentinel lascannon will be more useful to me than the Manticore, which has done jack shit in the last three games.

Yeahhh... I don't trust the banewolf, that thing has a mere template attack which to me says that it dies getting there or the turn after firing. I'd be more inclined towards a devil dog, which could replace your manticore's tank hunting and also quench terminators.

I also hate lascannon sentinels with a passion. One shot + BS3 + my luck = I'd be better off giving it a heavy flamer and charging it in to tarpit tactical marines.

I run mine either with Autocannons or plasma cannons to mitigate my many, many rolls of 1 or 2.

Actually, this kinda makes me want to play a mecha infantry list using all my sentinels... shame that leaves no slots for devildogs!

I totally see your point on the Bane Wolf, though I'm no stranger to using flamer-based tanks as a BA player. She'd be hiding among the ChimeraVets waiting to counter attack. I like the Devil Dog idea though, I may convince myself to proxy it if I get a second match in against a new opponent this weekend. The Sentinel is the worst thing ever, but it's also the most hilarious target priority game I could play. That lascannon could blow up his Land Raider and flat tire his Terminator/Vulkan squad's advance given that it's AP2. He might take the bait and shoot at it instead of one of my super awesome tanks, who knows? I'll definitely be sawing off the LC and magnetizing some options one day unless a sweet trade comes along.

Sentinel army?! That's mad talk.

So this list faced and brutalized some Orks today. If I had've had the Manticore it might actually have worked out for me!

Here's a blurry startup pic:



and some pics of his gorgeous Ork army (very Mad MAx themed):







It ended with me entirely on board edges in that corner with all four of my Leman Russ's pouring fire into the Orks as they made their way over the wreckage of my front line. I didn't even get a chance to move my guys from deployment basically, those Orks were fast. Great game all around, if his Warboss had have made it past the first tank he blew up I might have lost.

Wow, that's an awesome ork army. I particularly like his phaeton-wagon.

Looks like it was a fun game, how funny that your list and my list both faced down orks shortly after being written. Well done for winning with yours though!
