Finished off the other members of the 'new plastic' rubric squad I've been building to update my force:

Finally have a painted power armoured soulreaper cannon to vaporise some T3 fools in my games. Next up is getting some paint on the 4 warpflamer squad, and I need to make a sorcerer for them also.

Got another 5 Scarab Occult made up and basecoated today, allowing me to have a unit of 10 SOT's with sorcerer. I already have another TDA sorc who can lead a second unit if needed. Looking forward to using the big 10 man unit in game!

Quick overview of a game I got last night:

 

 

Played with this last night:

 

Spoiler

 

Against Death guard:

 

DP on foot, sword

5/6 Blightlords, 1 cplas, 1 blight launcher

3 Deathshroud

20 poxwalkers

7Plague Marines

2 Blight drones

2 PBC's

 

Secondaries

Mine - Wrath of Magnus, Engage, Raise banners (still on 2020 pack)

Opponent - Spread the sickness, Engage, Grind them down. 

 

 

I took prophecy and glimose of eternity to attempt shenanigans with getting free reroll and fixed dice, etc. Brazier went onto the dread pretty much every turn, ideal for a unit like that. The Prophecy standard spell (divine the future) was ok, would have been amazing if I rolled better - I think I got 1,2,2,5,5. I cast it early in the turn with my buffing exalted, then used the 5's to guarantee a super smite if anyone rolled a natural 6 on a smite. 

 

My shooting, aside from the flamers, was vastly underwhelming, and pretty much all the damage was done through mortals. 

 

Turn 1, the infernal master facaded the flamer unit to 9" away from the poxies, flamer unit then surged themselves, and got to 3" away, flamed most of them then charged in, with a big charge over some containers to contest their home objective, charging and killing some more that got resurrected with the strat. Finally killed them all in T3 and hel their objective.

 

My rubes did great in holding my own objectives all game, scarabs got mauled early by plaguebursts and never achieved much, deathshroud teleported in and assaulted my infernal master, killing him. They were then psychiced from existence by everything in my army. First was a super smite for 6 mortals killing 2, then 4 other units variously failed smite or did 1 mortal leaving the last guy on 1W to be axed by my TDA Sorc. 

 

PBC's were monstrous, the entropy cannons with D3+3 D murdered SOT's and my maulerfiend, and the mortars have a strat for flat 3 damage, and splash mortals onto anything within 3" - My dudes were clumped together T1 and I got got. 

 

Thoughts:

 

The prophecy dice roll is decent, however it can only effect a prophecy unit meaning a large part of the army has to be that cult - I dont think it's that great over the army - duplicity or time is better. If It could affect any THOUSAND SONS unit, then I'd probably consider taking a Prophecy detachment every game, as fishing for super smites was fun and powerful. 

 

Helm of the daemons eye did it's job this time and netted me CP back until the master died. Would use again. 

 

Glamour/Weaver didnt do much this game. You put them on one unit and the opponent shoots another. Maybe if I had 10 SOT's, or I had got first turn. I might try a game with only damage dealing stuff. 

 

Maybe 4 Character casters is one too many at 1500, I think I could have done with another unit of rubrics somewhere.

 

Mauler did little again, same with the Hellbrute - will try swapping the mauler for something with more ranged ability, which is what I was really lacking.

 

I got full primaries and Wrath of Magnus but dropped a bunch of points on Engage and Banners, might need to rethink that, or get more duplicity for engage.

The Rubrics look grand! Silver instead of gold is a nice change. Any pics of the Scarab Occult? I do like those models :)

One bolter dude in the new style to go with the last unit, the new Flamer marines just need a sorcerer to go with them, who'll be made from the new style CSM sculpts to go with them - I'm thinking the CSM champion from the Shadowspear set - the new CSM box champions just don't look right fot it. I'll swap the chainaxe for a staff and be done with it!

Love seeing those old Upgrade kit heads on the new CSM... they still hold up great and your lovely paintjob really ties everything together.

Yea, it's weird. I originaly stuck the new plastic Thousand Son's heads on the CSM bodies, but they just looked a little off, too ornate, so I managed to rip one off and replaced it with the older metal one, and thught it looked amazing. I could get another off, to make 2, but the other models heads were glued on just too tightly. Next guys for this unit will have the metal heads.
