Hi all, Ive got a tourney in 3 weeks time and im taking the death guard, but i need to lose 4 points from somwhere and i cant think where, Here is the list...

2 Daemon princes 175 x 2= 350pts
MoN, wings, warptime

7 plague marines 256 x 2= 512pts
2 melta guns, champ, powerfist, rhino

7 plague marines 211 x 2= 422pts
2 flamers, champ, powerfist

2 land raiders 235 x 2= 470pts
extra armour

Total 1754pts

In the warm up practice games ive just dropped a powerfist from one of the rhino squads. I just wondered if you guys could see anywhere else i can drop the 4 points from?

Many thanks Matt.

yep fists from the rhino squads and change them two double tap plasma squads. its that or droping extra armor .

"Felix wondered how Calgar might feel about the primach's unilateral altering of the Codex Astartes. The captain could not help but feel that, in his drive for victory and efficiency, Guilliman had been careless with the feelings of his existing sons. Increasingly, Guilliman looked to the Primaris Space Marines as his first solution. He made no attempt to hide the fact that the days of the older space marines were numbered."

You can also take Rot on one of your princes. Not sure where to put the 5 extra points though. Ah well an extra bolter on rhino never hurts.

I'm open to messages if you want help or advice from me.

 

You can ask me anything.

Where is the tourney, and what does the metagame look like? Also, who are the tough players that will give you trouble, and what are their armies? With some more info, I could offer some different advice, but the simple answer is to drop extra armor from the raiders, or drop a flamer from one of the flamer squads. I cant say which is better, though, without some metagame info.

Also, as others said, dropping a fist might be better, but again it depends on the metagame.
Current armies needing painting: Orcs and Goblins, Vampire Counts, Ogre Kingdoms, Dogs of War, Tyranids, Deathwatch Space Marines, Imperial Guard, Daemon Hunters, Witchhunters...

Hi, the tourney is at warhammer world in nottingham. Whats this metagame term you refere to? never heard of that before. I know a few of the guys are going but i havent played in a tourney there for a few years so i have no idea what they will be taking. Im guessing that lists will include, nob biker armys, chaos lash lists, and marines of many types, vulkan, lysander and so on.

Definatly orks, chaos, marines, sisters, tyranids, 3 mono necrons, the list goes on.

The list looks fine. Like Jeske would say, you have a pretty standard Raider Rush build. Good idea on keeping the Flamer boys in the Raiders.. and yeah, if you need points, I'd say drop the extra armor on the Land Raiders. It's not really necessary. Keep Warptime on the Princes, and keep a powerfist in every squad to make Nob Bikers a little less of an issue (if you can manage to charge one of their squads with 2 - 3 of your own, +2 Princes.) Nobs are going to give this army a harder time than anything else. Otherwise, good build.

Thanks for the replys everyone. The only thing that worries me is dropping the extra armour on the raiders. If they get shaken then they can't move. Why is the extra armour not worth it? Is it because if the 4+ cover save you can get now in 5th ed?

Nope its because the points raised from 5 to 15. You only get stunned 1/6th of the time you get damage anyway. But if you take it, the only thing worth putting it is the Land raider though.

Arh I see now, yeah it is kind of expensive. I'll try it out, knowing me that will be the one time I need it when one gets stunned and I won't have it then I won't be able to move.

Thanks alot for the replys once again, most helpful.
