Hi guys,
a friend of my challenged me to a 3500 points game versus is Salamaders. The match stipulation are the following:

- 3500 point limit with a 5% overflow allowed (and we will use it to the last point...)
- 2 FOC each
- we want to expirement a bit with this game, fielding units never used before


I think that he will show up with:

- Vulkan (of course)
- the Chapter Master (he is bragging about that orbital bombardment thing for months)
- assault terminators that he will deep stike in to the battle
- scout and tactical marines with teleporter homer (to help the termies)
- one or two dreadnoughts
- the legion of the damned (another of his favorites subjects lately)
- the vanguard veternans with jump packs
- the sternguard veterans
- a land speeder or two
- the thunderfire cannon
- a land rider or two
- maybe a predator and/or some bikes
- as many (heavy) flamers and thunder hammers / storm shields that he can buy



For me, the best way to go after him is with tons of shooting, tough units, and h2h hard hitters and so I've came up with the

following list:


- Autarch, bike, mandiblaster, laser lance, fusion gun (140)
- Farseer, bike, stones, spear, doom, fortune (163)
- 10x Warlocks, bikes, 1x embolden, 1x enhance, 8x destructors, 2x spears


- 10x Harlequins, 9 kisses, Shadowseer, Troupe Master with Kiss (266)
- Yriel


- 6x Fire Dragons (96)
- Wave Serpent, stones, TL shuriken cannon (110)

- 6x Fire Dragons (96)
- Wave Serpent, stones, TL shuriken cannon (110)


- 5x Dire Avengers (60)
- Wave Serpent, stones, TL brightlance (145)

- 5x Dire Avengers (60)
- Wave Serpent, stones, TL brightlance (145)

- 5x Dire Avengers (60)
- Wave Serpent, stones, TL brightlance (145)


- Fire Prism, stones, holofield (160)

- Fire Prism, stones, holofield (160)

- 5x Dark Reapers, Exarch, Tempest Launcher, Crack shot (217)

- 5x Dark Reapers, Exarch, Tempest Launcher, Crack shot (217)

- Wraithlord, 2 flamers, brightlance, wraithsword (140)


- Eldrad

- 8x Striking Scorpions, Exarch, b1iting blade, stalker (150)


- Vyper, shuriken cannon (50)

- Vyper, shuriken cannon (50)


Ill'go tank hunting with the Dragons, the brightlances and the Prims. The Prism will also help the Reapers and the Vypers take

care of his footslogging units.

On the first turn (is I can pull it off) Eldrad will cast fortune on the seer couincil (so they can turbo boot away) and

guide/fortune on the Reapers/Wraithlord and will keep helping them for the rest of the game.

The scorpions will lay back in defense of my firebase or late game objective with the help of the WL.

The main objectives of the Vypers are the dreadnoughts and I will try to blow away his scouts/tactical marines as soon as

possibile to keep the terminators at bay.


If my math is right, I still have 17 points to spend. I'm not sure if the best use for them is to add another scorpion or to

upgrade one of the Avengers Serpents with a chin mounted shuriken cannon to give them a bit of anti troops punch.


Thank you in advange for your comments (and criticism)!
