The Great Army List Challenge!
 
Here's the Challenge:

For every participant I want you to make two army lists for your favorite army. 2000 POINTS.

One list is to be the best, hardest, most effective killer competitive list you can make. Beardy, cheesy, min-maxed...whatever. This is the list you would take to a GT. This is your KILLER LIST.

The other list is to be a fun, fluffy, friendly list engineered so you AND your opponant have fun. This is a list you would play with an occasional player, or a newbie. This is your FLUFFY LIST.

Two versions of the same army!

Then explain why and how the army is KILLER or FLUFFY and why you would play either of them.

The goal here is to see the differnces between what people consider KILLER and FLUFFY and why.

Post your responses with the prefix [CHALLENGE] so they can be easily found and looked out, and kept separate from general lists posts.

All right mate, you're on.

(phew, luckily Elc hasn't set a time limit!)

:cyclops:

Elchimpster 09-19-07 09:55 PM

Ha HA!.
Due date is Halloween 07!

The Wraithlord 09-19-07 10:22 PM

I'll give it a shot. Only problem will be making the beardy list as I don't really do that. The lists I use at tourneys are just the lists I make for regular gaming. They are what I am used to and I can use them effectively enough so why bother? :D

I will see what I can come up with however.

Red Orc 09-20-07 10:38 AM

Yeah, that's more or less what I meant - could post a 2000pt marine list now that I could justify with fluff, but a cheese-beard list? err...

Well, we've 5 weeks to think about it (though I think I should be allowed to take as long as I like, because I agreed when there was no deadline! Mr Elchimpster... can I have an extention on my assignment please...?)

I pressume we should post both of these lists together, rather than two random and disconnected lists? Also, can I suggest no editting of the lists once posted?

And we'll all post them at 11.59 GMT on 31/10/07... :D

Two lists in one post. No extensions, no reprieves.

jigplums 09-20-07 09:18 PM

wow, thats amazingly similar to a list ive used quite a bit. in fact drop 2 spiders and spend the points on a few weapon "upgrades" on the tanks and your there.

Great minds think alike i suppose......or is it simple minds rarely differ?

Hmmm I've never made a single cheeze list in my life, but I guess I could give it a go, how hard can it be *turns to Thousand sons in my codex* Christ.....this will be easy

Red Orc 10-31-07 10:36 PM

Well, sorry Elchimpster, I've gotta admit defeat. I haven't turned in my assignment after all...

I just couldn't bring myself to sit down and write a list of cheesey beard-spam. And then, because I knew I wasn't doing that, I just couldn't be arsed to type up the fluff list. Sorry.

Great idea though... pity I'm useless (I reckon that Initiate should get a prize, for being the only one who has done both parts...).

Yeah same here. Just can't bring myself to write out a cheese list.
