Also the redeemer is awesome. What is riding in it? The Tac squad and Techy?

 

Pretty much, but only if need be. Other than being cheap, the Techmarine's main purpose is to be 1) fluffy and 2) to heal the Librarian Dreadnought when it does the Malefic gimmick...

Works for me - if Techmarines could take invuln saves they've be awesome duelists. Especially with all of our bonuses.

So instead of the triple FTSF list, I've tweaked this force post Angel's Blade:

Land Raider Redeemer

 

As you can see, it plays the same way but with a bit more oomph at the start of the game. Opted for a Priest in the Meltacide (points saving) and for the moment, the Techmarine is on foot as I'm not entire sure where to trim the points for a bike - or even a jump pack and combi-grav if possible - so he can Scout the gravbikes. Still sticking with Malefic (despite the Techmarine being nowhere near for the gimmick to work) Oh, and I'll need to borrow a Predator or Jimmy Rig one up from a Rhino (counts as using a razor turret and sponsons) but that's neither here nor there really.

A hell of a lot of dakka there for sure.

 

Who goes in the Redeemer? Tac Squad and leftover characters?

Yup, the Tactical Squad and the Techmarine (unless I can find him a jump pack/bike - and make the model of course).

Attempting a revamp for 8th, whilst keeping the theme (heavy mech) in place. However, I'm considering dropping the Cerberus for now! ohmy.png

 

Trouble is, I'm not happy with it so far.

 

2000 - Heavy Mech list

Battalion Detachment

 

HQ.gif

 

Techmarine

~ Chainsword, hand flamer, servo arm

 

Techmarine

~ Power axe, stormbolter, servo arm

 

Troops.gif

 

Scout Squad (5)

~ Camo Cloak, chainsword, sniper rifle

~ Camo cloak, sniper rifle (3)

~ Camo cloak, heavy bolter

 

Tactical Squad (5)

~ Chainsword, stormbolter, meltabombs

~ Heavy Flamer

 

Tactical Squad (5)

~ Chainsword, combi-plasma, meltabombs

~ Plasma gun

 

 

Spearhead Detachment

 

HQ.gif

 

Land Raider Excelsior

~ Stormbolter, multi-melta, combi-plasma, hunter-killer missile

~ Warlord: Gift of Foresight

~ Veritas Vitae

 

HS.gif

 

Land Raider (Phobos)

~ Stormbolter, multi-melta, hunter-killer missile

 

Predator

~ Predator Autocannon, two lascannons

~ Stormbolter, hunter-killer missile

 

Vindicator

~ Stormbolter, hunter-killer missile

 

 

Supreme Command Detachment

 

HQ.gif

 

Librarian Dreadnought

~ Stormbolter

~ Quickening, Wings of Sanguinius

 

Lieutenant

~ Chainsword, master-crafted boltgun

 

Rhino Primaris

 

Options & Tactics

  • 10 CPs, LRE Warlord with a 6+++ and the Veritas Vitae
  • Techmarine in the LRE and the heavy flamer Tacticals, Techmarine in the Rhino Primaris and *maybe* the other Tactical (it not, then in the Phobos). Lieutenant where needed. Scouts in cover somewhere useful
  • Two LRs roll up together, with the Rhino Primaris just behind and the Predator and Vindicator nearby. Librarian Dreadnought makes a nuisance of himself on a flank
  • No ML stratagem for anti air, only outlet for the HB stratagem.
  • Is it too 7th edition orientated?

Thoughts?

Oh, and the LRE as Warlord idea can be seen here

Seems interesting. It's hard to say how it'll play out, though. You have a lot of wounds wrapped up in a few models, and a couple of lucky heavy weapons could mulch your hopes. But that's not exactly unusual! Between the Phobos, the Excelsior, and the Predator you've got a LOT of heavy firepower. I'm a little cautious about the comparative lack of anti-infantry, but I tend to overdo that these days, so you might be fine.

I have the sprues to switch to either a Crusader or a Redeemer, both of which would tick the anti-infantry box. More balance that way?

I think the Crusader would be the better option of the two, with a nice round 24" on everything. The Inferno Cannon is really good, but the short range really puts it behind comparatively. I'm hesitant to outright swap the Phobos for the Crusader, if only because I'm not entirely sure I'd want to give up a pair of twin lascannons, but that's a pretty solid swap if you agree on the anti-infantry question.
