Hi all,

I'm playing a toury shortly with a few wierd ish restrictions.
1 HQ
2-6 Troops
0-2 FA
0-2 Elitea
0-1 HS
No models with over 34 combined AV
No models with over 3 Wounds
No flyiers including MCs
No 2+ Armour

Without further ado here's my provisional list:

Herald on Bloodcrusher Hatred Locus
14 Blood letters
13 Blood letters
8 Marines w/Autocannon
8 Marines w/Autocannon
20 Fleshhounds

That's what I'm planning to take.
I was in 2 minds if too take a Defiller or not.

I'm not going for serious games just fun.

How do you think it would fare? And any suggestions?

Looks pretty solid. Id recommend splitting the units down as small as possible to make it harder to table and also generate more blood tithe! Bloodreapers should be taken for the bloodletters as its essentially 5 points for one blood tithe (put him in front so he dies first). So, instead of 20 hounds, you have two units of 10, and you split the bloodletters into 8 8 11, with a bloodreaper in each. You'll have the points by dropping the auto cannons (which you can't take on units smaller than 10 anyway). Given that, I'd swap the marines for cultists (you could take 3 units of them and if they all die thats 6 blood tithe for you). And then you still have 86 points left over.

Additionally, defilers are terrible! xD Too expensive for what they do. If you're dead set on a vehicle then a maulerfiend has the same armour and is far more reliable.

Hope I've been helpful :)

I thought you only got Blood Tithe for characters dying in a challenge? Only Independent Characters count as a separate unit, no? Upgrading to a bloodreaper and putting him in front does not grant a free blood tithe for 5 points as far as I can tell..
