List Review

Hi Reece (and Frankie)-

Starting to theory hammer for LVO and got intrigued by the idea of 4++ blobs:



2 x Priests

2 x Primaris Psykers, ML 2




Infantry Platoon:

PCS, 4 x flamers (rides in Vendetta)

Infantry Squad, Lascannon, Melta Bomb, Power Axe, Vox-Caster

4 x Infantry Squad, Lascannon, Melta Bomb, Power Axe


Infantry Platoon:

PCS, Vox-Caster

Infantry Squad, Lascannon, Vox-Caster

3 x Infantry Squad, Lascannon


5 x Scouts, Bolters


Heavy Support:

Field Artillery Battery, 3 x Thudd Guns


Fast Attack:

Vendetta Gunship



Skyshield Landing Pad

1840 Points, 10 to play with

The larger blob with 4++ from Azrael takes board center while the smaller blob chills on the Skyshield with the thudd guns. It lacks fast scoring for the maelstrom format, other than the flamer PCS in the Vendetta.

The alternative would be to build with DA Primary (for Ravenwing Troops): drop the Vendetta, flamers and scouts for 2 Ravenwing bike squads (4 bikes, 2 melta guns). More fast scoring and scouting melta, no AA.


Looking forward to your thoughts, I’ll be painting cadians . . . .

    space hulks get to be so big because they are a collection of derelict space craft that have merged/melded together over time, and some of the ships are so old the AdMech will pay their left nut in bounty for the tech that’s on board, so greed is the bigger reason they don’t just destroy the hulks

    • Reecius
      Reecius September 13, 2014 1:45 pm

      Ah nice, thanks for the clarification!

      • novaStar September 13, 2014 2:28 pm

    • Reecius
      Reecius September 14, 2014 8:22 am

      • Hotsauceman1 September 14, 2014 9:33 am

  7. RoockieBoy September 14, 2014 11:26 am

    Nice podcast Reece and Geoff! (And Frankie) hehe
    One thing about the list for review though, you can’t try to get Invisibility… Mainly because primaris psykers don’t have access to Telepathy. Only the Astropath can, in the whole AM book.
    Reece, I haven’t seen any video batreps with you using a full scout list! What happened?
