I'd be interested to know how exactly the mordrak bomb works because I'm just not seeing it. None of my more competative armies are even remotely concerned about him appearing on turn one, especially not in a squad of four bods. He either drops close to me to bring in reinforcements on turn two (where he get's munched in double quick time so turn two isn't an issue) or he drops further away so what's the point (you could have moved there in a turn)?
Not to mention warp quake/coteaz making DSing difficult.
OKay it is simple. It is a two style attack.
1st if i go first I aim at a bunch of vehicles or troops with cover near by.
this allows me to get a cover saves from melta & las cannons. I then put warp rift on my target and if armour ten i fire at the back armour. My DS units and scout units can then come in by turn 2 and 3.
2nd If you go 1st You can put forth warp quake but as an engineer i know where the 12" cir.is. A mental ruler is in my head all the time. I can still aim at a vehicle that would be out of your 12" branch or line up in your deployment zone.
Like i said guys anytime you want to test it out GW store in NYC, email me when your in town and ill make some time. Ive played 25 games with mordrak with vets & gt and he never dies in turn 1 or 2 maybe 4 or 5 after he has done his job in destroying more points then he is worth.
all players i have matched and seen stick vehicles in 2's behind/inside cover. this allows me to stay close and get my own cover. i start taking out your vehicles and leaving your troops on foot. if you charge mordrak's unit then fine, my line of defense is sanctuary & halberds. This also mean you are taking a unit or 2 away from the battle to deal with them. If you dont then the unit will go around bothering units/vehicles and droping hard units as they go. I also have a hood on the field with leadership 10 against your ldr 9. warp quake. It does not always go off ya know. no IC leadership to use it either. dont forget i can also potentially spawn more units from mordrak.
Being playful as a grey knight now.
"This is a game of numbers. I am just using the best tools to my side for better numbers. why you cant see the tactic as being dangerous is beyond me. Perhaps you have never seen mordrak used in this way. perhaps you can not imagine an attack and lack the vision to anticipate this sort of scheme. Vets, GT players and GW employees see it as potentially dangerous. They like the numbers and strategy i play by always having a backup."
