Triangulum I keep a 1500, 2000, and 2500 list updated (so I can handle any size game) and then add in or take out units to fit any odd spots that cost a nice round number of points.

Sieg Our tourneys are always either 1500, 1750, 1850.

Our quick games are 1250 but not usually anything under that.

Johnathanswift At my club we play 1500, 2000 battles, occasionaly someone will play a 1850 but its an odd number.

comrade well... when I used to be able to play.. 2000pts everyday.

Bunny Lord We usually play 1000, 1250 (for small pick u[ games or to help someone with a new army). 1500 and 1750 (for a standard pickup game) 2000 (for a large pick up game. And 2500 if we want to playtest an ard boyz list.

Corporal Chaos I usually do the 1500 to 2000 point games. A 500 to 1000 for quick battles.

Why?

In smaller games, you rarely have the oppurtunity to recover from errors or a really bad round of dice rolls. In a 2k game, you can try something new and creative and still have almost 90% of your army if you lose a fairly expensive unit early on...

I find 1500 pt armies have no points left for fun units; you take all the unit you HAVE to take [for a good list] and are left with little try out new units or combos...

If you don't go with a well rounded solid list, and load up on a specialization, it becomes a game of paper-rock-scissors. Overwhelming advantage against certain opponents on certain table types, with an huge disadvantage against other races with different terrain.

I like to have a well rounded force that is designed to be able to deal with everything with some spice that doesnt necessarily have to be a solid, predictable choice...

I also have a weakness for terminators.... when's the last time you saw a solid 1500 pts list that featured terminators?

tbh i really liked your post and nearly all made perfect sense and added up bar the terminator one. imo there are lots

1. deathwing (/ravenwing combo)
2. lysander wing (old codex ovisouly)
3. chaos (too cheap and harsh at t5 or 4+ invun, or i5 with power weapons etc)
4. dread pod, terminator death army (again old codex)
5. shrike and infiltrating termintors ... check (new codex)
6. outflanking assault termintors in LR with sick flamers ... check (new codex)

but like i said i agree with the rest of your post completly

I often have them in a 1500pt game with a crusader.... They are easily able to take out a third of the enemy army so it's alll good

Lord Reevan THe 4 major points costs in my area are 450 (combat patrol), 750, 1000 and 1500. There are only 4 armies over 1500 points in my area and they're well over it! I'm on to almost 5500 now
