Hard to go too wrong with Oblits, the only real question is whether to make that one unit or split them up.

If you have points to spare, I'd consider making the chaos lord a bit more deadly. Either the Black Mace or LightningClaw+Fist (you choose which to use in combat depending on target, but as they're both specialist weapons you get the +1 to attack) would really increase his killyness.

So I played last night against Blood angels.

The list was 3 units of 10 assault marines , priest - feel no pain within 6 inches. 2 typhoon speeders , 3 attack bike multi-meltas , some dirty dreadnought in a drop pod ( he did fuck all) and Mephiston.

We played the Relic mission, which was fun, it was a strange experience as hardly any of his models were on the board. But I thought it was his down fall as it allowed me to pick and focus my fire and get into position to where I thought he would deep strike his assault marines. Two units came down 2nd turn and he deep striked where I thought he would have. The Forge fiend was waiting, as well as the heldrake and 3 obliterators with plasma cannons. They all got shot up. I think he would ave been better not deep striking and to charge multiple units at once , clearing one flank. Mephiston dodged 12 plasma gun shots. NOT taking one wound. He did a lot of damage but failed his pysic role to kill my Lord with his force weapon. My lord then chopped him down to one wound before falling in the next round.

The eventual score was 5-2 in my favor.

Obliterators are amazing. Who ever said for me to take them is genius! I went and bought some mutilators and a space marine box set to do some conversions. They are so versatile.

Next week I'm playing loyalist marines.

Cheers Will
