I dropped the (I) and added some blood claws for the rune priest to go in.I figured there guys would perform well if I play against an aggressive in your face list.I can throw the blood claws at them.

That list should shoot really hard...

I can just see the fluff-bunny conversation...

"Your list is WAAC -- you dirty spammer!"

"What do you mean? I have Blood Claws! How much more fluffy can you get than Blood Claws?"

:victory:

when it comes to packs over 6 blood claws are the better choice over grey hunters in my opinion. think about it when an aggressive opponent is charging at you in this example lets say blood angles you throw the blood claws at them as a kind of speed bump unit.it will slow them down for at least a turn or two thats 1-2 turns you can shoot at other things instead of having to worry about rusher units.plus there cool the fluff is cool and how awesome is 32 attacks on the charge.
:biggrin:

I would drop the BC and replace them with GH, BC are pure crap without a WG leader and even then they are only ok. 1 unit ain't going to stop shit. Just try and get more shots in. Other than that, and the crappy super dread, this list is the standard comp rape you from range lasplas list. You should do well.

And it wouldn't be WAAC.

I am iffy at the blood claws I love them forums say there craps people I know like littlebitz or at bolterandchainsword use them and do well so ill build the squad to be fielded as blood claws or GH and playtest it

I will post battle reports for every game I play with this army as well as painting the entire army unit by unit starting with the razorbacks on here,miniwargaming,dakka,youtube,my blog autarchandrew.blospot.com and 40k online

The biggest problem with blood claws is that you get hit on a 3+ from MEQs... Sure they get an extra attack, but unless you wipe out the squad, you're in trouble. Also, the loss of a pip of BS makes thier shooting unreliable....

In you're list they are they are like the cherry on top of a sundae... Not really needed but nice and fun.... If they do useful stuff then cool... but if not, then that's cool too...

And Ahab... Razorspam is min-maxing, cheaty, and WAAC - at least that's what I've been told... and I was just trying to build a balanced list.... :grin:

No, it ain't cheating, it's competitive list building. WAAC is saying that since I need to put the end of a flame template on the edge of a base I can fire it forword from the back, total bullshit.
