So got a great day of gaming all lined up for Saturday. I will be travelling up to Levin for a show down with the locals-teach them how it's done!
I'm hoping to get in 3 games (2 WHFB, 1 40k). I will be trailing the lists below:
Bsteed, HA, sh, Dhelm, SOAHeroes, 4++, pofool
Bsteed, FPA, sh, COC, warriorbane
FPA, ch.shield, DBGem, Somight
Engineer: LA 66
lvl1: light, scroll 90
13 ICKS: FC-Sodiscipline 370
5 Knights: m 120
10 archers 70
5 archer detach 35
5 archer detach 35
2 cannons 240
5 Dgriffs 290
SO basically my "normal" list but I've stolen Hoodling's idea and have 1 big unit of 5 Demigriffs. I figured this benefits me in a few ways. 1) harder to get points out of, and 2) makes magic buffs/hexes more powerful. It will however force me to play a more defensive game as only have 3 things that can engage, 2 chaff, and 2 redirectors/chaff hunters.
In the magic department I have the lvl1 with a supporting magic missile that I can amp to s6 and is flaming (bye bye vargulfs, trolls and Abombs!) and the lvl4 has plenty of threat spells-most importantly searing doom and final transmute. Hopefully with this I can draw out scrolls early! As I've said before my Empire lists dont really benefit from lvl4 with lore of light because the buffs are too short range.
Pklaw, Cybody, Attack squig
15 Lootas 225
5 NobBikers: Cybodies 370
20 shoota boyz 160
Pk/HA Nob, 2 Bshootas
20 Shoota boyz 160
PK/HA nob, 2 Bshootas
10 Grotz 40
Deff-rolla, Kannon, 4 Bshootas
If someone wants to play 1750pts instead I might bring up another battlewagon to be my "boomgun looted vehicle" and 10 burna boyz (dropping a 5pt thing to fit them in) for lolz
SO no surprises here either. Buzzsaw deffcoptas gives me more t/linked dakka (volume of fire is important with orks!) and a better anti tank threat than rokkits that may or may not hit. Basically s7 vs rear armour with 3 attacks hitting on 3's, or 1 t/linked attack hitting on 5's s8 that may be vs better armour. However, in saying that, they are prime contenders for being dropped for a dakka jet (hopefully only drop 2 and some of the surplus equipment lying around-big shootas Im looking at you!)
I'm still a little tender from the FAQ, but hopefully my Orks can still dakka and crump with the best of them.
I promise to take HEAPS of pics and take notes for EPIC BATTLE REPORTS (with shirts on-not really into this 'nudity hammer' thing going around :P).
