Army List: SporeCon 2011

The annual SporeCon is about to happen soon. In anticipation, I am deciding what army to field.

Necrons? – Am I suicidal?
Tyranids? – With KP missions in abundance in the local tournament, not a really ideal army.
Tau? – Same issue with Tyranids. Lots of KP to give.
Space Marines? – So many of them.

In view of a few considerations, I am considering Deathwing. It’s fluffy, an army that gives low KP and it consists of mostly troops. With the update of wargear to match the latest Space Marines codex, it might just work. I have work out an army list as below.

HQ
01 Master of Deathwing (Thunderhammer/Storm Shield)
ELITE
01 Dreadnought (TWL Autocannon/Missile Launcher)

  1. I face DA terminators before and that before the faq, they are very versatile can shoot can assault and very tough. Troops some more! With the new faq SS 3++ make them even tougher

  2. Very good list. Can deathwing and ravenwing be combined, as swapping a dread for 2 speeders would be prefect (imho).

    Don’t discount the Tau. I don’t think they give up that many kill points, particularly with the new FAQ.

    I didnt include ravenwing cuz they dun have attack bikes only as a single unit in dark angels
    Codex. Thus to include 1
    Would cost too many points. I have considered landspeeders, without proper support (tanks on the table) they become too much a liability. Thus i just settle on the cheaper option of just having dread as range support.

    @raymond & crazyrat
    26 terminators only. Not many. Hehe. 1 plasma cannon, all die. Well, seems a few test game is needed. Looking forward to it.

  4. Didn’t know Tau got an FAQ1.1 out. Reading through it, my Tau army still gives 21KP as compare to 28KP at 1750pts. 😀

  5. Yes, lets PLAYTEST.

    And nah, the Tau FAQ is pretty useless. It mostly only clarified the LOS cover issue. Not much change to the current codex.

  6. I made a similar list, but had 3 dakka preds and 3 typhoon speeders and all the termie were th/ss/cml.
