I am playing in an escalation league and I don't have the models I need to compete with them since everyone runs fast attack mobile armies with psychic powers. So instead I am going to do something stupid and run models I have been wanting to run but haven't so I am using a forgeworld dread mob with some fast elements. Let me know what you think, did I do it right? I have never done a dread mob. I used the points from the forgeworld pdf. Commments and critics welcome.

Seems to work as far as i know, not 100% on the rules now days myself. It seems to be a legal list.

As to the list itself, apart from being a silly slow walker list it seems to have a reasonable idea. Not too sure what the idea with the rokkit/mega blastas though is with the AP 2 the megablastas are a better anti tank with the plus 1 to the chart. but really are you going to shoot much? Personally I always use the 3 klaw skorcha dreads, they are great against light infantry or some heavy armor units.

Apart from that grot zookas are always great, the grot ballistic is good for some lists and not so much for others. Depends what your facing.

Really even though i love dakka jets and have two painted ones, they don't function at all really the nurf from the double shots took them from OK or maybe decent in some cases, to near useless weak flyers who's shooting is inconsequential. Id go more deathkoptas.

Thats all i got.

Thanks that actually helps a lot.

I didn't realize I needed to take the mandatory unit of spanner boyz. So it looks like the dakka jet is the thing that is going to get dropped and replaced with a unit of spanner boyz and a trukk.

Well like I was saying everyone uses fast things, lots of bikes, landspeeders and things so I use the shooting to pin them down because in the lower point games they just ran away from combat and whittled my army down to nothing with shooting. So I actually plan on shooting a lot.

I love walkers so I figured it would be fun to run this just for fun to see how people handle it. I think the grot tanks will give people problems since they can go template crazy.
Second attempt at my list
