First things first, when you use a formation make sure to list the units in that formation so that there is less confusion. As it stands your list is actually not legal thanks to the wraiths.

What your using here is the Decurion detachment, which is currently made up of a Reclemation Legion and Living Tomb formations.

A decent choice, and I'm guessing he's going with the lychguard?

Have you given any thought to Anrakyr instead? He's a little more expensive, but that warscythe makes him even deadlier in combat and would allow you to use fewer lychguard and get some points elsewhere.

Don't see much point to the extra warrior in each of these squads, I think your better off staying two squads of ten and banking the points for elsewhere.

A lot of points here, especially when coupled with your warlord likely being here as well. I'd suggest removing two or three.

Nothing much to say here, should do well though you might find the particle beamer not worth it.

This is what is making your current list illegal, since neither formation you are using allows for wraiths to be brought. That being said, I do have a solution down below.

Not entirely sure this is the best use of your points. Don't get me wrong, these will both be tough to crack, but your heavily limiting your army in doing so since these two models represent a full third of your points.


I would honestly recommend the following list, which is a Decurion detachment comprised of the reclemation legion, a canoptek harvest, and a judicator battalion.


Now this list gives you a lot of bodies on the table and is very forgiving overall.

It also has the ability to swap out the auxiliary choices for other ones, such as the Annihlation Nexus, Destroyer Cult, and Deathbringer flight. (Well swap out the Judicator Battalion for any of those three, since each one is +300 points.)

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

I see what you're saying, and it seems pretty cool, I just thought having the living tomb would be cool, for dropping in the center of the battlefield.

I see this is your first post on Heresy, welcome to the forum! Are you new to the game in its current state (7th edition) or a seasoned veteran? The reason I ask first is because there's a ton of ways to build what's considered a 'legal' army in 40k right now, and if you're unfamiliar with list building it can seem a bit daunting to get your favourite models on the table for a match in a coherent manner.

You have a Combined Arms Detachment filled out just fine, is that what you were trying to build with this list or did you want it to be a Decurion w. Living Tomb instead?

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

I played for a while when I was a childish age and then stopped and have only just picked it up again, I am familiar with the way it works now but just have trouble getting my head to make it work, I agree with Darkreever's post for the most part, and if I want a living tomb, I can just add it to a 2000 point list

Ever checked out list building apps for your phone/tablet/computer like Battlescribe?

Like with the other formations I mentioned, if you remove the Judicator Battalion from the list I suggest, in addition to a lychguard, you would be able to take the living tomb formation from your original list.
