So today, I fancied trying something new, To mix things up a little, and was determined to use A land raider.

So in about 5 minutes, I came up with this.

HQ-
•Daemon Prince
MoN, Wings, Warptime

ELITES-
•(5) Terminators
2 chainfists, 1 powerfist, 5x Combi-Melta

TROOPS-
�•(7) Plague marines
2 meltaguns, champion with powerfist
Rhino with Extra Armour

•(8) Khorne Berserkers
Champion with Powerfist
Rhino with Extra Armour

HEAVY SUPPORT-
•Land Raider - 240
Daemonic Possession

•Defiler - 150
4x DCCW

•Defiler - 150
4x DCCW

So, at a first glance, that looks really... average, as a list.

But In today's game, I faced a TH/SS Termies in a Raider, typical power-gaming Marines idea.
I Lost 6 - 5 on annihilation considering:
- In 5 turns on a Defiler shooting It's Battlecannon at a squad of 5 scouts in cover, 1 scout died.
- I moved the raider, and dispatched the Termies to assault a Land Raider, only to find they were 7" away.. meaning they were sat there, 7" from 5 TH/SS Termies and a LR. So i lost those faster than you'd ever imagine.
- The Berserkers did nothing, they got caught up with those TH/SS Termies, before they could assault a Razorback but 5" away. :(
- I forgot to fire the Raiders LCs one turn, when i had a Razorback in LoS

So.. Considering i didn't even use; A Defiler, The Termies, Beserkers and I forgot to shoot and odds are blow up a Razorback..

I think the list did alright. :laugh:

What do you think!? I'm going to try some more with it.. I'm feeling that the 'Zerkers didn't really work, again a TEQ heavy Army- But I think in a different scenario, The termies would become useful.. And Hopefully i wont shoot 5 battlecannons, and Watch 25 cover saves in a row be passed.

Well, I wanted to have a chance of winning; so I still didn't even give Raptors, CSM, Lords, Sorcerers a second thought.

It's suprising, because there is just no chemistry in the list at all.

The troops don't work together, The LR and Termies don't back up anyone, the Defilers do their own thing, and the Prince just sorta flies around.
