List Review

Hey, I hope you’re having a great day! I’ve got a blood angel list that I theory crafted up, was hoping to get some advice/opinions on it.

Mephiston’s posse

Mephiston

Librarian w/ML 2

Sanguinary Priest

5 Man Assault Marines w/flamer in a Land Raider w/multi melta and searchlight

5 man death company in a Land Raider w/multi melta and searchlight

Death company dread w/blood talons and heavy flamer

Stormraven gunship w/TL assault cannon, TL heavy bolters, hurricane bolter sponsons, and searchlight

Tigurius

5 man scout squad w/land speeder storm w/heavy flamer

Thunderfire cannon

Works out to 1849. Mephiston, Tigurius, the librarian, and the sanguinary priest all go in the land raider (with the death company dread). The goal is to get invisibility and endurance on Mephiston’s posse.

Thank you so much for your guys’ podcast. You, the overlords, and forge the narrative are all that get me through my workday sometimes, and I wanted to mention that I really appreciate it. You guys do a lot of work to put out a fun, interesting show, so thanks!

    Why the heck did i buy the inquisition Digital. Book?!

      Rumor has it Inquisition will be taken out of Codex: Grey Knights, so Codex Inquisition will be more useful, not less.

        not sure I follow… They sell a new dex for Inquisition and somehow that’s going to make the dex for Inquisition that I just bought better or more useful?

          New Grey Knights codex doesn’t include inquisitors or inquisitorial henchmen, Inquisition digital dex is the only current source for Coteaz et al, profit?

    Good job, Frankie. Thanks for the wisdom on the new Pimps of Fenris supplement!

    I’m quite interested in what Reese likes about Grimnar.

    A sicaran tank is the same points as a Baal predator w/storm bolter and it’s a lot better but tainted it’s a heavy support you could take both 🙂

      My brain wrote granted and my fingers thought tainted was a better fit lol

      Sicaran has “Relic of the Armoury”-rule (or something like that). If you include more than one then you have to have MotF, expensive chaplain(DA), priest (BA) or runepriest (SW). So theres that. But its way more better. Same goes for that whirlwind fuck-everything-with-S8.

        It’s a reclusiarch chaplain for Blood Angels, which I ran one with death company anyway lol

      Heck yeah I forgot about the sicaran. three of those and three ballz all day

      LVO will be at the Flamingo in 2015.

        That helps, do you mind posting a source. I’m peeved that I couldn’t find out myself.

    Hi there, I wanted to reply on Frankie’s comment regarding Fantasy. There seems to be this consensus among 40k gamers that 8th Edition Fantasy is bad but down here at Game Kastle in Santa Clara and Fremont we have a thriving Warhammer Fantasy community. End Game in Oakland does too. Most Fantasy players that I speak with feel that this is the best edition and that only minor tweaks are needed. No one wants to see Fantasy become more like 40k. We dread what allies would do to the game. I play 40k as well as Fantasy and I keep hearing people on 40k podcasts that don’t play Fantasy at all making negative statements about the game as if it’s broken and no one plays it which is not the case at all. I also hear statements about how you can do “such and such in Fantasy and that’s why no one likes it” which almost always is a false statement because the rule that they claim to be quoting they are either misquoting or have completely wrong. So I just wanted to speak up for all us Fantasy players out there that are enjoying this edition. Thanks!

      Glad you enjoy the edition and sorry if Frankie’s opinion rubbed you the wrong way. I am sure he didn’t mean anything by it and yeah, you are right that we don’t know that much about it, so take anything we say with a grain of salt.

      Allies scared the crap out of everyone in 40K, too, but now most folks really like it. We shall see what the future holds, in the meantime I hope you continue to enjoy the game!

        Hey Reece, I hope I didn’t come across poorly. I wasn’t irritated with what Frankie said. I just wanted to speak up for the Fantasy players that really like the game and edition. Cheers!
