    Hey guys! (I’m not a girl and those pictures aren’t mine either)

    While not seeming to be mobile the idea is to actually march that blob forward to midfield, and use orders to help the process and simply have the lascannons shoot when needed (I could always not move for a turn) or just use prescience for snapshotting twin linked. Both priests join the blob for more hitting power. The knights will die, never hold them back move them forward to the enemy and if they blow up, I will take down models with me.

    The PCS (sorry about the typo!) or the vets can use the aeigs. The vets are actually just a troop tax to me and will hold backfield objectives.

    Scions can deepstrike and the plasma squad will add some fire power where needed. Meltagun squad does the obvious…and since its a command squad is not scoring. So its certainly squishy in terms of troop count. The idea though is shock and awe.

    I could actually drop the vet squad and run this in reverse by taking another scion squad and take scions primary…but based on how I want to use the command squad would lead to a very dead warlord!

      Sorry about that! It had been a long time since we spoke and I was forgetting some facts. My apologies.

  2. Oadius May 13, 2014 6:44 am #

    that list is way troop light.

  3. Oadius May 13, 2014 6:47 am #

    I’d drop a knight and get another platoon.

  4. ligolski May 13, 2014 6:55 am #

    It doesn’t have to be troop light, I could split the blob up and just camp it out. However, the whole idea of the army was to use my two knights and create a thematic adeptus mechanicus army with cool conversions and such.

    It is called “The Brotherhood of mutants” They sought Mutant Superiority. While “The Hellfire Club” seeks t rule the world from the shadows

        You slacker Reece

        You slacker Reece you’re supposed to be the brains behind this thing

    nice as always. Liked the Cromwell interview.. smoothest yet! Getting better 🙂 He needs to drop the Sky blight act though.. can’t be moving in on my territory. If more people play Tyranids what excuse will I have to complain about my under powered army??? WHAT EXCUSE?

    • Dr.insanotron May 13, 2014 10:37 am #

      That’s because I’m a smooth criminal. And don’t worry my main army is Chaos Space Marines. But I do like me some bugs

      • winterman May 13, 2014 4:42 pm #

        Was awesome having you out to Spokane once again Ben. Thanks for the props in the interview and nice work with the bugs.

    Isn’t the list AM, with Knight Allies and Scion allies?

    • Reecius May 14, 2014 9:58 pm #

      Yeah, I accidentally posted up the wrong pic.

  9. Gregorius42 May 14, 2014 4:34 pm #

    Thanks for posting my pics. I sent them using Lori’s ex-iPad so default email was hers.

    Sorry the armies got mixed up as my White Scars clearly are not AM. However, I am building a new AM army and will need list advice.

    Also, agree this was good episode and interview was good.

    • Reecius May 14, 2014 9:56 pm #

      Ah, that’s where I got my wires crossed! It was Lauri’s army but the wrong list for review, sorry. I was out of my rhythm, and got mixed up.

      Thanks for the kind words though, I am glad you liked the episode!
