  • Basically the gameplan is to form a gunline that can deal with both hordes and tanky units. If I get charged, the termites pop out, dealing mortal wounds to 3'' of enemy units, thinning out the enemy force, and if (when) the Noise Marines die inside, Music of the Apocalypse should activate and they all throw a grenade, further thinning out any assaulters.

  • For the Havoc units, the Chaincannon one in particular, I am not sure whether I should be ramming them into the opponent with the Rhino early on, or let them hang further back. If the latter is better, is the Rhino even necessary?

  • Lastly, again for the Havocs, I have the older models without the Stabilization Talons. Will this be an issue on the tabletop?

    Your list is hard on the eyes brother.

    Stabilization talons won't matter on the models. But I think you do need a rhino. Its not just about delivery its an alternative form of protection for whichever unit is highest priority to save from no LOS ranged attacks/orbital bombs etc. Typically the las havocs but alternately the chain havocs.

    Having played with and agains the termites I feel 2 is too many especially considering contents. I'd lose at least 1 unless your just wanting to play with models you own in which case cool.

    Also same advise for lord arkos. Hes a badass in rules form and our only scout but almost no one will let him do anything really useful.

    Lastly on detachments if your not bent on purist then you could move one unit of noise marines and make the spearhead into another battalion with NM troops which is where they'd start being worth their salt. That would allow you to move the contemptors to keep AL trait.

    Anyway just some friendly ideas.

    Hard on the eyes? Uh oh, that doesn't sound good. Please elaborate, I'd like any and all criticism.

    I have not yet bought the two termites nor the two additional NM units without the sonic blasters. They were added to bump this from a 1500 list to a 2000 list. I did not really have a clear idea as to what I wanted to fill in the remaining 500 pts so I went for some stuff that discouraged assaults. What other units would work here? Just FYI, the extra 500 points comes in the form of the rapier cannon, two termites, the Exalted Champ, and the two noise marine units.

    As for Lord Arkos, I'll probably switch him out for a Sorcerer.

    I'm not sure what you mean in your last piece of advice, but I suspect it is a moot point as I'm more than willing to remove the two non-Sonic Blaster NM units.

    I just meant the black view.

    Ok that makes sense. I use noise marines here and there because I like them but theyre not the most competitive choice. My best performance had been 2 blastmasters in 10 camped as a pseudo havocs unit. Making them troops helps a bit. That was my point.

    Plenty of ways to go for counter assault. Characters and dreads being some of the more common and effective. Along with cheap screens that is, especially since your in alpha legion. You can use fwd ops to push back assaults a full turn. Better than flame weapons.

    Thanks for the insight. Took out the two extra NM units and the two Termites, but kept the rapier. Added an extra Dreadnought and an extra Daemon Prince for more overwatch.

    Nope it was easier to read with the black. Its a pity that battlescribe makes most units 2-3 vertical lines deep.
