35 pt Legion list for team tourney

Postby mattbird » Sun Jan 30, 2011 10:07 am

Basically just playing the models I like. Seeing as I barely know the rules, I think I can handle shoot/scoot tactics ok. Teaming up with Weaksauce, who is also running legion.

eLylyth
Nephilim Bolt Thrower 6
Angelius 9
striders w/ UA 9
Deathstalker 2
max raptors 10
Anyssa 4

You'll struggle to take out heavies and you don't have many sources of fury. I'd add a Ravagore, but play the list and see.

A jack/beast heavy list will pose a serious problem. The Angelius can deal serious damage to a heavy, but can't really seal the deal alone and usually dies after you shoot it in there. A carnevian, scythean, or ravagore might suit the list better.

That said, sticking with the current list:

If the enemy caster is relatively low armor, you should be able to dance around his heavies and feat to kill. Lilith can feat and take her shots, and if that fails to assassinate, bring up the bolt thrower and go for the crit knockdown. Then bring in the rest of the army.

With a higher armor caster (or a warlock camping focus), you should take your time and keep your distance, picking off infantry first and then plinking down his jacks/beasts until you can launch in the angelius and finish them off. The bolt thrower will help here with its pushback shot.

Against Karchev or Terminus, praying might help.

I would think I am OK against hordes heavies, though, with poison on the raptors, and pin cushion spell? I know I'll have a hard time against warjacks.

I agree the other heavy beasts might be better, and the Scythian does fit in at 9 pts.

Andrew, what's your list?

Been Playing around with:

Saeryn +5

Carnivean 11
Seraph 9
Angelius 9
min Legionaires 4
Forsaken 2
Shredder x2 4
Spell Martyr 1


I might swap the forsaken for a shepherd and another martyr. Its been fun so far.

It's still a base 10 bow. Try using anything Def 15 to tie up heavies while you maneuver for the assassination.

The Seraph's 8 points. I'd swap it for the Scythean, but if you like the list you're playing then stick with it.

The Seraph IS 8 points.... Maybe I've had 2 martyrs all along lol. A Sythean would be bad-ass and I'll get one eventually, but he's not on the painting table at the moment and I like how my list can play a decent amount of grab-ass before going in for the kill.

If you want to get pin cushion off, I'd suggest a spell martyr or two. Keep Lylith as far back as possible.

Also, trolls may still pose a problem with ARM 20 on their heavies (assuming a KSB in tow). Even with pin cushion and poison, the raptors are only doing an avg of 2 dmg per shot. You can put the hurt on troll heavies, but they'll regenerate quickly.

gotcha. so, given that Andrew and I are playing as a team, do we have enough stuff combined to take on heavies? The other thing I see about this tourney is that it's all missions. As far as I can tell from the book, every mission is basically the same- a take and hold type of thing, which my list probably sucks at. I guess I need to start playing!
