KNIGHTS LIST

Warlord Senechal Errant

melta cannon. It Will Not Die WS/BS 5, Fearsome Rep.

3X Paladins

DA Libarian Mastery2 Tarmor warp shield (3” 4++)

10 DA scouts w snipers, camo(+1 cover), vet sarg w power fist

Mortis Contempetor 5/6++ 2 kheres ass. canns S6AP4rending 12@ 24”(intrcptr, still)

basically everything gets to start in the sheild bubble from the DA psyker, and then he gets to cast prescience on the warlord.  Mortis helps out with AA. what could go wrong?

see ya at the LVO

(ps, i am actually proxying these knights with 7″ pacific rim action figures. is that ok for the LVO if they are WYSIWYG?)

    How many points is that list – like 2000?

    Sounds cool but the errant isn’t guaranteed to have iwnd – you still gotta roll for your warlord trait unless I am missing something.

    Fun list. Knights are a blast to play and having added in some Anti-Air you should have a lot of great games.

    In the IA2 space marine 2nd edition the mortis only gets interceptor till the end of the game turn, so if you go 2nd you wouldn’t be able to intercept the opponents flyers

      Thats kinda Pants on Head.

      • Stephen April 26, 2014 12:58 pm #

        Its not THAT pants on head, it lets you ignore a skimmer’s jink save. Bye-bye Wave Serpents/Tau tanks.

    I just want to bring this up. If the 2015 LVO is the end of the circuit and counts toward the overall winners you cant really count the 2014 LVO

    • Reecius
      Reecius April 26, 2014 12:29 pm #

      We are counting it this first year.

      • dr.insanotron April 26, 2014 3:58 pm #

        Cool. Any info on the BAO?

        • masos April 27, 2014 12:21 pm #

          I also would like to hear more BAO news. I might be able to get the days off because I don’t have a date to give my boss….

            We’re aiming for September, now. It’s been very challenging so far to find a suitable venue.

    Lady Jaye was played by Adrianne palicki(so?) Soooooo hot…. Want to touch the heiny

      She is a beautiful women.

    right on the ItwillnotDie thing. as warlord, he does get Senechal though. i think this is the equivalent of a coteaz riptide cheese-spam list, but i bet it will be fun. i’ve kind of played my way around the block w lots of 40k armies. i think it’ll be a nice break to throw down just 16 models

  7. Oadius April 26, 2014 9:44 am #

    ehhh, not sure about comparing this list to riptide anything. Knights die pretty easily… Riptides, not so much.

  8. Slaede April 26, 2014 10:18 am #

    That progressive scoring mission is absolutely insane. If you want to see nothing but IG blobs and zombies squatting on objectives for the entire game lobbing Wyvern shells at each other, make sure that becomes the new standard for missions.

    • Reecius
      Reecius April 26, 2014 2:15 pm #

      Yeah, it really favors bit, fearless scoring units.

  9. Hotsauceman1 April 26, 2014 10:54 am #

    You guys should mention how the DZC Terrain will actually have Scenarios.

  10. Novastar April 26, 2014 2:20 pm #

    I see the monorail an I imagine a military version of the train heist from firefly

  11. Katie April 27, 2014 10:45 am #

    Really Cool Knights! Would Love to get one of those!

    • Reecius
      Reecius April 28, 2014 9:24 am #

      Yeah, they’re really cool!

    From my experience with Knight armies is that your Contemptor is not going to do well for AA… with only a 24″ range, the flyers that are going to be pounding knights (Nightwing, Vendettas, etc.) can just sit outside the Contemptor’s range, kill it, then attack the knights with impunity. Also, the only target in your army for Wave Serpents are those scouts, expect that they’ll die turn 1/2 against a lot of competitive armies. When you only have a single target in your army for 100% of the opponents anti-infantry firepower, you need to have a way to protect them early in the game. If I were using DA allies, I’d be podding any troops I took, and instead of a contemptor mortis, I’d use a pair of standard mortis with autocannons, which gives you a much wider threat range for enemy flyers.
