Azrael
Ezekiel
5 man DW w/ Plasma Cannon
5 man DW w/ Plasma Cannon
6 bike RW w/ 2 Plasma Guns and a MultiMelta Atk Bike
1076 pts

Njal w/ Runic TDA
15 Bloodclaws w/ 2 Meltaguns and a Power Axe
520 pts

Cortez
Ordo Xenos Inq w/ 3 servo skulls, Power Armor, Conversion Beamer, ML1 (Hammerhand), Force Axe
Valkyrie w/ Lascannon and Heavy Bolter Sponsons
1 Ministorium Priest w/ Bolt Pistol
8 Acolytes
403 pts

1999 pts total.

Thoughts are to have all of the HQ ICs attached to the unit of BC. This would give it a 4++ from Azrael. Also will try for Invisibility with Ezekiel. Cortez would go for the Divination Primaris, Njal would do his storm powers and maybe roll all on Biomancy, haven't decided on him yet. Xenos IC gives the blob Hammerhand and the long range CB threat.

The DW, RW, BC, and the henchmen in the Valk are all Objective Secured scoring if I am thinking right. Pretty much plan to deploy the IC/ BC blob in a midfield oriented manner and use the rest to harry/ support.



Thoughts? Will be playing against a Nid/ Cron and Eldar/ BA set of lists this weekend.

Looks like a fun time! The only thing I would try to find points for is Hot Shot Lasguns for the Acolytes. I think they're 3 points per, tossing cheap AP3 on them might help out defending those Objectives. I know they're still Lasguns at heart, but my buddy used to DS 5 man squads of Stormtroopers and it consistently ruined my day because of those damn AP3 guns.

Dropping the Acolytes down to 4 total gives the all HotShots and a MB to the priest. The unit was more of a late game grav chute objective drop planning wise.

If that's the case, wouldn't Flamers be the best weapon for them? Lets them get dice rolling upon landing (barring Scatter) and keeps them well defended on Assaults. That Wall of Fire rule or whatever it is that gives Template weapons such as Flamers D3 Overwatch hits wins. A similar thing to accommodate points-wise I think.

Are those Blood Claws (I'm thinking CC oriented SW unit?) foot slogging with Azrael?
