List Review

Imperial Fists (Sentinels of Terra Supplement) 1850

Primary CAD

Lysander – 230

4x Centurions w Grav Cannons – 330

10 Man tactical w plasma, combi plas, RHINO!!!! – 200

10 Man tactical w plasma, combi plas, RHINO – 200

Stalker w Storm Bolter – 80

All Las Predator – 140

All Las Predator – 140

( I call my two predators The Twin Swords – The Sword of Purgation and The Sword of Retribution – naming tanks is how we roll up north)

CAD 2

Master Of the Forge w Bike and Conversion Beamer – 130

5 Scouts w BP/CC and LAND SPEEDER STORM – 100

5 Scouts w BP/CC and LAND SPEEDER STORM – 100

Thunderfire Cannon – 100

Thunderfire Cannon – 100

1850 total

Lysander runs with the Centurions. The MOF can hopefully repair a tank or 2 and maybe get off a str 10 potshot. Otherwise I’ve tried to have an answer for most things but am aware I’m light in assault and flyer defense but think the predators can help out a bit with flyers. Does this list have what it takes or am I doomed to failure?

Hopefully you guys have the time to review, but if not I will still faithfully click your site multiple times in a day, just with a heavier heart.

Thanks!

    Those Resistance models (pictures) look amazing!

    ALSO, super excited because Hawk WG is re-releasing all of the starter boxes in multi-part plastic soon with all of the same detail and quality and a price cut down to roughly $55.00!!!!

    There’s an unboxing/interview on Beasts of War’s youtube channel if you want to check it out.

    Thanks for the list review!

    Low model count indeed. The Master Of The Forge is on a bike, so the hope is that he gets off some choice Strength 10 and then can get back for some timely vehicle repair.

    The 2 Scout squads are because 4 Obj Sec. for 200 points seems like a deal. Outflank. Hide. Jump on objectives if needed. Heavy Flamers just in case.

    Lysander is there to tank some fire for the Gravs, hopefully keeping them alive for a turn or 2 and then maybe he can deter an assault. The real issue is that I am incapable of building a marine list without him.

    But you guys gave some good food for thought. Always helpful.

    Cents in dops will be a big thing, you dont have to deep strike the pod close it should be used as a decent first turn ‘move’ trying to keep with your army. its a bargain, as it frees up pyskers to look for something other than gate. Plus they cant be alpha struck by the opponent. I will be shocked if its not a common thing in tournaments. 3 cents in a pod with tiggy.

    The good thing is most tournaments are limiting CADs to 1, as you were allowed 2, 3 pods full of cents would be horrific for all my lists.

      Yeah, exactly. You need to cut back on the amount of insanity that you can pack into a list to keep it fun.

    Throw in a cheap rune priest with the centurions in pod for prescience

    I thought battle brothers had to start on the table before they could embark on a transport. This would preclude them from coming in on a drop pod.
