Default 1850 Tourney

Just wanted to share a list that a friend took and really caused some headaches. I was given a run-down but had to flush out the last 25pts on my own =).

1850 even

175 - Grand Master (attached to termies)

200 - 5x Grey Knight Terminators, Demonhammer (in Stormraven)

150 - 5x Grey Knights, Razorback, Psybolt Ammo

150 - 5x Grey Knights, Razorback, Psybolt Ammo

150 - 5x Grey Knights, Razorback, Psybolt Ammo

225 - Stormraven, Psybolt Ammo

270 - 10x Interceptors, 2x Halberds

260 - Dreadknight, Personal Teleporter, Greatsword, Heavy Incinerator

135 - Dreadnought, 2x Twin-linked Autocannon, Psybolt Ammo

135 - Dreadnought, 2x Twin-linked Autocannon, Psybolt Ammo

Use GM strategems to give Dreadknight and interceptors scout (and stormraven if you manage the 5/6 roll). The scout move burns the personal teleporter, putting the army right on the enemy's doorstep.

Decent model-count, Psybolt ammo rocks, deep striking in it sucks with 4 warp-quake units. Experiement with it and tweak it to match your preferences. Enjoy

If it works for YOU, then it isn't never a wrong choice. With Love, Mao.

Looks like fun, needs more heavy AT. Land Raiders and other AV14's will mess you up. Find room for psycannons or give the stormraven the AT setup. Just my thoughts

First, Stormraven cannot gain Scout. It's not a dedicated transport and Grand Strategy does not apply to vehicles (exception: walkers).

Second, the list looks solid for any non-kill point game. I would only change the Great Sword, Psybolt on Stormraven, and give the Grand Master a Halberd. Overall, in 2/3 of games, this is a strong list.

Yes but you can give the units inside the storm raven scout which confers on to the transport?

Troops only grant scout to Dedicated Transports they are in, not any vehicle.

Not a bad list, I wouldnt mind fielding it. However I don't see the point of the psybolt ammunition on the storm raven since it's so expensive just to boost the assault cannon. Also the terminators could maybe be switched out for something cheeper which I think would do the CC job better like purifiers or death cult.

If I remember, the 30" move is not a normal move and cannot be applied during scout move, but correct me if I'm wrong...

You can disembark, Turboboost, pop smoke all in the scout move so I don't see why you couldn't shunt.

(I was corrected on the scout move on stormraven in real life. Thanks for catching it here.) AV 14 isn't too big of a deal, but lets address all of the issues at once.

1850 even

185 - Grand Master, Meltabomb, Halberd (attached to termies)

200 - 5x Grey Knight Terminators, 2x Halberd, 3x Demonhammer (in Stormraven)

150 - 5x Grey Knights, Razorback, Psybolt Ammo

155 - 5x Grey Knights, Halberd, Psycannon, Rhino

155 - 5x Grey Knights, Halberd, Psycannon, Rhino

205 - Stormraven, TL-Multi-Melta, TL-Plasma Cannons

270 - 10x Interceptors, 2x Halberds

260 - Dreadknight, Personal Teleporter, Greatsword, Heavy Incinerator

135 - Dreadnought, 2x Twin-linked Autocannon, Psybolt Ammo

135 - Dreadnought, 2x Twin-linked Autocannon, Psybolt Ammo

Death cult and purifiers may do close combat better, but they are not troops (without going out of our way). Greatsword helps the DK deal with a LR if one actually shows up.

If it works for YOU, then it isn't never a wrong choice. With Love, Mao.
