All this talk about the PDF the other days made me nostalgic. It also made me think about if the old PDF 'dex could stand on it's own today.

 

So here's the idea:

Make a PDF list that's playable today, preferably with some elements that aren't possible with our current codex!

 

(Use 7th ed rules for any wargear that's in the rulebook. )

 

 

 

For those of you that have never seen the PDF, don't have it any more or are just curious you can view it here:

interesting here is what I would do

 

200 Dante, His death mask alone could shut down eldar or tau shooting deepstrike him in with his honor gaurd

125 Lemartes, so death company doesn't go running away

 

230 Dantes honor guard pw, 2 meltas blood angels banner, priest, jumppacks

205 lemartes honor guard pw, 2 meltas, priest jumppacks

 

175 VAS 2 meltas rhino dozer blades

140 RAS rhino

100 Baal

100 aegis defense line

35 7 DC with jumppacks

 

interesting challenges to over come with not enough tools. flyers would be the hardest thing to over come went with the baals and defense line to help deal with flyers, 1 RAS would man the gun, with rhino and other RAS and rhino in reserves. VAS in rhinos would move forward playing aggressive mid field and also and strong anti armor function. DC and lemartes would go screaming forward, taking as much heat as possible, they score btw. dante and the honor guard squads would deepstrike hopefully shutting down ememy shooting and assaulting for that matter. thoughts?

I like it! Quite different from what I had in mind. One thing I would change is the troops selection. Tactical squads have those bolters and can take a special on a 5-man. Definitely worth finding some points for.

Perhaps some more shooting (max out on specials as well as combi weapons in the HG for example) to maximize that preferred enemy from Dante?

 

Mort, if I remeber correctly you used to rock that dual preferred enemy + FC combo? FC might have lost a lot of its appeal since then, but is it still something we could work with in the meta of today? 

 

 

This is how I'd like to run a list if we were the brettonia of 40k tongue.png

The Dante-Corbulo combo was huge in 5th edition, but now not as great.  I'd still run pdf Dante, but Lemartes is so cheap for what he provides that he'd be near autoinclude.

 

Of course, Mephiston is an IC again...

But here is the hard part my storm raven is doing to eat this list and you have no answer to it...

Once the missiles are a gone the storm raven isn't going to do much damage.

 

Cron air and Eldar would be a problem, but not more than they already are.

Well remembered buddy! 

 

Ya, the wording of FC and the bubble length made it so that it covered a huge area - and PE was monstrous then too. 

 

Im keen to try make a list of this soon
