So Autarch-Andrew put up a Bjorn list that made me start thinking about how fun it might be to run with Bjorn... I think I'm going to try this out this week at 2K...

Bjorn with TL Las
5 x Grey Hunters in Razorback with TL Las
2 x 4 ML Long Fang Pack
1 x 5 ML Long Fang Pack
2 x Typhoons
3 x Rifleman Dreads

14 things that shoot hard every turn (which is on par with my normal 2k razorwolf list)

Sure, but it will probably be like this...

1. Deploy
2. Shoot everything
3. ?
4. Profit

I'm gonna give it a try on Thurs though... I just finished up my Bjorn model... it's here so feel free to admire the awesome! :grin:

Not to put a damper on things . . . but you need another troops choice. If I am reading your list right, you've only got one unit of Grey Hunters.

This list will probably do really well as long as your opponent puts every single model on the board at the start of the game. Me- well, I would hold everything in reserve, Deep Strike every single unit I possibly could, and use superior numbers/CC specialists to try to overcome all those guns.

But that's just me.

Good luck!

I'm sorry, I have 5 units of 5 grey hunters in Razorbacks... bassic razorspam

Pretty much the plan would be to castle up or go refused flank... Keeping the razorbacks close by so that I can screen or assault any troops that drop in (ie, blood angels with melta)... anything else would have to get shot... but the list packs a hell of a shooting punch... so I think I'd do OK.

I like this list, Your advice is great, the only problem...

It's expensive to have a mech list!

I'm working out getting razorbacks, predators, and vidicators.
All i have for vehicles is 1 ironclad dread, 1 regular dread, 1 land raider, 1 rhino, 2 speeders. QQ

not to burst your bubble because this is a good list, but this is just Razor Wolves with Bjorn on top.

lastly, i'd change out the LS to Tornado pattern (HH/MM) and kit out all LF squads to have 5 ML.

normally i'd say take las/plas on the Razorbacks in favor of TLLC, but IMO with Ld. 8 underszed squads your much better off standing back and shooting.

i would not consider this a CC list, but the advantage is that you have so much firepower should be able to kill any would be assaults into your lines: as long as the Razorbacks hold out.

good hunting.

I think you will be very happy with the Bjorn Build its not original its just uncommon.for 290 points an venerable dreadnought with a twin-linked lascannon that when he dies he becomes a objective and lets you re-roll to see who goes first thats huge for alpha strike

OK so I got two games in with him tonight....

1st game was against a non-optimized Marine list running termies... I pretty much tabled him on turn 1. He gave up before his first shooting phase since I had wrecked his 4 razorbacks and his Raider was immobile.... Good list vs bad list = no fun

2nd game was a 2 vs 1 game (rematch + another fella had shown up and was looking for a game...) -- between the two of them they put together a really ugly list... it was KP and Pitched battle... Ended up with the tie... They took something like 6 Razorbacks, 1-2 typhoons, dread, termies, and 2 preds. Basically 9 hard shooting threats... I made some deployment errors that pretty much had my Long Fangs gimped most of the game... they did some good stuff, but it was more chance rather than volume of fire... Also, there was no way for me to centrally deploy them so I pretty much had to pick a corner and try to refuse flank them... but they're just as shooty as me for the most part.. so it was a lot of pew pew. But a really good game none the less... I think it was a good object lesson for "good lists vs good lists = fun"

So against a very competative build, I believe it can hang... vs a not optimized list it was like clubbing baby seals...

BTW - Bjorn lived and popped a raider and a razorback...

Nice list. I have a couple questions though.

Whats a "Rifleman" dread?

Is a "typhoon" a HF/MM Landspeeder?

? Boy we gona needs to schools you. Lol I kid. A rifleman dread is a dread that uses two TL autocannons and a typhoon is a LS with ML on it.
