A friend of mine will be joining me for Throne Of Skulls in March and is looking to get some feedback on which of these 3 army lists to use as well as possible improvements.

LIST 1
Chapter Master 255 Points
The Burning Blade, The Shield Eternal, Artificer Armour

10 Man Tactical Squad 190 Points
Veteran Sergeant, Power Sword, Melta Bombs, Flamer, Missile Launcher
Rhino 35 Points

10 Man Tactical Squad 205 Points
Veteran Sergeant, Power Fist, Meltagun, Lascannon
Rhino 35 Points

10 Man Tactical Squad 175 Points
Melta Bombs, Plasma Gun, Plasma Cannon
Rhino 35 Points

5 Assault Terminators 225 Points
Thunder Hammer, Storm Shield

Hunter 75 Points
Storm Bolter

Stormraven Gunship 200 Points
Twin-linked Lascannon, Twin-linked Multimelta

Aegis Defence Line 70 Points
Comms Relay

Total 1500 Points

TACTICS
The Tactical squads will be deployed as needed most of the time inside the Rhinos for objective rushing with the squad with the Plasma Cannon on the Comms Relay. The Chapter Master and the Terminator squad will come in on the Stormraven, the Comms Relay increasing the chance of it arriving on turn 2. The Skies of Fury rule allowing the Terminators to disembark turn 2 or later. The Hunter is there to deal with Flyers and the Skimmers of Eldar, Tau and Necrons



LIST 2
Chapter Master 255 Points
The Burning Blade, The Shield Eternal, Artificer Armour

7 Honour Guard 220 Points
Champion has a Relic Blade, Chapter Banner, 3 Power Swords,2 Power Axes,
1 Power Maul

Locater Beacon

10 Man Tactical Squad 190 Points

Veteran Sergeant, Melta Bombs, Plasma Gun, Plasma Cannon

5 Assault Terminators 225 Points
Thunder Hammer, Storm Shield

Hunter 70 Points


Total 1500 Points

TACTICS

The Tactical squads will be deployed as needed most of the time inside the Rhinos for objective rushing. The The Chapter Master and Honour Guard will arrive by Drop Pod putting pressure on from the start. The Terminator squad will come in by deep strike using the Locator Beacon if possible.



LIST 3
Chapter Master 255 Points
The Burning Blade, The Shield Eternal, Artificer Armour

7 Honour Guard 220 Points
Champion has a Relic Blade, Chapter Banner, 3 Power Swords,2 Power Axes,

Total 1500 Points

TACTICS
The Tactical squads will be deployed as needed most of the time inside the Rhinos for objective rushing, with the third arriving by Drop Pod. The Chapter Master, Honour Guard and Sternguard will arrive by Drop Pod for a first turn strike to put pressure on from the start. The Tactical squad can then arrive using the Locator Beacon or deploy for the best advantage.


So what do you think to his three lists and which was seems the best suited for Throne Of Skulls?

I think the terminators are going to be the hardest to kill off but I don't know if the Raven is going to make it's points back if you hit a tau opponent. Have you considered a land raider crusader?

Right, I've got to ask what chapter tactics is your friend taking for any/all of these lists? Difficult to tell from the lists and by knowing we can tailor our suggestions.

But taking the lists as they are, they all are quite interesting. I personally feel more affinity to list 1. It is a far more rounded list, ticking the majority of the boxes. I would assume that the tactical squads are combat squading?

Not really that much I can say without knowing who these guys are. Just beware of hordes or heavy mech armies and should be relatively alright.

Ps. I'm hoping to attend this year as well. If you're around Friday was going to pre-reg and grab a drink/try and rustle up a game

Brilliant, I'm going to be there the friday to pre reg as well and to meet Kolonel Grotsnik. He and I have been friends for quite some time.
