Now that most of my play group is vaccinated and we can start playing 40k again this will be the first list I take into the fray.

The idea is the move the death ball up with Gman threaten with tons of firepower and the melee threat.

Drop the pod and eradicators near some armor that has to die. If the drop pod is coming down T1 the Captain will start on the board and move to them. If its coming down T2 or T3 he will also be in reserve to give them rerolls with Seal of Oath.

Question on which physic abilities are best for Tiggy? Also any other suggestions that can be made for the list

Disclaimer: I am far from being an expert, so take anything I suggest with a grain of salt.

It would only cost 5pts to take a Primaris Apothecary over the regular one. Then you can take Vox Espiritum as a relic (for an extra CP), increasing the aura to 12 inch. I think that is quite nice!


If you take three attack bikes with MM instead of Eradicators+drop pod, you might sacrifice a little firepower (D6+2 dmg vs. D6) and a little mobility but you get a little more survivability and you free up 55 points.
An attack bike is also an excellent unit to revive with the apothecary. And it provides more shooting vs. infantry and the ability to split your fire.

You could use the 55 points to give the Chaplain a bike (30 points, T5 instead of T4 and 7W instead of 5W) and buy Primaris upgrade for apothecary (5 pts) + grenade launchers for the intercessors(4x5 = 20 points).

Alternatively, you could also cut the power fist from the intecessor seargents, and with the 70 points (after Primaris upgrade for apothecary) you could:

upgrade the Bladeguard Veterans to a 5-man squad.

Or upgrade one intercessor squad to a 10-man heavy intercessor squad. Those could be deployed as two separate 5-mans and sit on objectives. This would make "While we stand, we fight" a great secondary. Because killing both those 5-mans would be quite hard to do.

Or buy a unit of victrix guard, which would provide a great deal of protection for Guiliman. If you can keep them close to Guiliman but out of line of sight, G-man is pretty much invincible.


EDIT: Just noticed that, if you take a Primaris chaplain on bike it might make sense to give him the seal of oath . Then you could cut the jump captain and free up another 120 points.
EDIT2: Regarding Tiggy, I like your choices. Though, I am not sure about Null Zone, because that also kills your own auras.

Great thoughts, I'll have to test that out. Snap I didn't realize that nullzone changed to everyone rather than just enemy units.
