    My list for this game:

    [color=red][size=24][b]2000 Jy2’s Double-Whammy Mechdar[/b][/size][/color]

    Autarch – “the Works” (Mantle, Jetbike, Shard of Anaris, Fusion, Laser Lance, Banshee Mask)

    10x Guardians
    Wave Serpent – TL-Scatters, Holo-fields

    10x Guardians
    Wave Serpent – TL-Scatters, Holo-fields

    10x Guardians
    Wave Serpent – TL-Scatters, Holo-fields

    10x Guardians
    Wave Serpent – TL-Scatters, Holo-fields

    10x Guardians
    Wave Serpent – TL-Scatters, Holo-fields

    5x Dire Avengers
    Wave Serpent – TL-Scatters, Holo-fields

    Wraithknight (stock)
    Wraithknight

    Just a little background on our game. We played this game before the Golden Throne GT as practice for the Golden Throne (at least for Frankie). It was because of this game that Frankie modified his Golden Throne list to include 6 ravagers, 6 venoms and 1 wraithknight. From thereon, Frankie went on to dominate his first 4 games at he Golden Throne before he finally got eliminated by Reece’s army in the Semi-finals.

    Overall, it is a very nasty list. It’s probably got only 2 hard counters, both of which I run coincidentally – mechdar and necron tesla-spam. Venom-spam against mechdar is like terivgon-spam tyranids against venom-spam….it really isn’t pretty.

    And I remember when the Eldar codex rumors were coming out how everyone was complaining about how terrible Wraithknights would be against Dark Eldar. I just said ‘I don’t think Eldar will have too much of a problem with DE’.

    Love the list Frankie, very similar to mine (although no eldar allies…. yet) Sucks though going up against fully meched armies. I lost a game the other weekend to fully meched Dark Eldar! How embarrassing!

    What are your thoughts on Blasterborn vs. Lanceborn? I think Blasters are too expensive given they typically only get one or two shots in a game before dying. I’d rather have more lances in the backfield.

    Cheers

      I like the blasters more as you can move the vehicle and still fire at full BS. The lance born are extremely vulnerable to shooting and will be easy first blood targets or additional kill points.
