Had a bit of a hobby spat and so decided to just experiment with some parts.

 

I got Carab Culln in an eBay job lot and decided he'd make for a fantastic traitor character. Nothing final as I don't actually have these bits spare yet, but inspiring none the less. Had to scrape off all the Aquilla. With the right head Culln's armour looks like Tartaros :D

So - I've decided I want to try and avoid the semi-normal "Grab a Spartan, put a Primarch in it and hope" approach of 30k and do something I'm more familair with: Pods!

 

While I often run 7 pods in my 40k BA the DG won't be as numerous, only running 2 (one Dread, one Claw) to delivery Morty and his Pals and a Leviathan.

 

Using the models I have now and minimum purchases I've put this list together with Pride (screw tacticals) which focuses on pure chemical death and TDA style dudes. Notably absent are the Medusa's I coveted for so long. Just figure they don't fit what I'm doing here. I'd probably bring them with some Ordo Reductor allies come higher points and move the Castellax there etc.

 

Only real issue is that the Previan has no gear outside of a 5++, but he's just there to bring a stompy pew pew robot friend :)

 

The Siege breaker either goes with the missile guys if I'm against armour, or rolls with the flamer squad to give them the fun trick of disordered charges against them and throwing his bomb among the flame.

The only thing i would suggest is try to make the points to fit a third pod.  That way you can bring the Leviathan and Mortarion down on turn 1 and you won't have to worry about reserve shenanigans.   With your list maybe try to make 60 pts to give your cortus a pod.  He isn't as much of a linchpin in your list as the levi/morty are so if he gets stuck in reserves for a while you won't be too sad.

That is pretty sound I suppose!

 

One option is I lose the Meltabombs on the Deathshroud and Veterans (as they are pretty expensive for some power armour and lucky ap2 rolls) and put another Death Shroud squad with another Claw.

 

This could be 5 men or 4 men with meltabombs and leave me a few points to kit out the Previan? That probably fit's the list a little more and will act as an ace second wave.

When i put your list in battle scribe i was coming to a total of 2950 with the difference being in the heavy support squad, did you miss one of their options?  if not, then you just need to drop 10pts to fit in the dread pod for the cortus and i would probably do that by dropping the volkite charger off the siege breaker.

It's nice that you've squeezed a little Choom in there as well. Can't wait to see more of this. Will we see any of your DG in the ETL next week?

Weird? I'm using scribe aswell! Will investigate...

 

Aww man - In the interest of power I would but that Volkite charger is imperative to the model I'm going to make for my breaker. Think a dude hardcore gunning peple down with choom, but a power scythe and boarding shield chained to his back cool.png

I'd love to Hachard but I'm afraid my ETL services are already pledged to my first love; the IXth legion - but the 40k incarnation!

True. I can't help but feel that's pretty important though? But I guess with the 4++ he's pretty sturdy.

He's not Av14 all around and its not like his rear Armour 12 will help all that much whether or not it has AC or not.

My obly gripe is that a Praevian for a single castellax is a huge tax, especialy since they gain little from your legion rules. you could trade them for another vet squad or a tactical squad to baby sit backfield.

I agree, it is rather lack luster.

Playing around I took out 5 missile guys from the support squad as an extra Castellax instead of them will probably be better overall. Plus placing ten guys will be quite hard and they're mainly there for fun/ fluff. (also I only own 5 at the moment...).

Changed the Cortus to a Mortis with Kheres too for some weight of fire fun.

Have about 300pts leftover as I took out the vets, just don't see the need for them in the list (plus I have more deathshroud to use). I need to use this 300 for a troops choice though.

I'm tempted to just Run Mortarion solo though, he's fast enough to get stuck in and warp between terrain with minimum resistance. Unless a plasma team jumps him and manages to let off the 42 shots that are needed to kill him I think he'd be fine... I suppose he could even have his own dreadclaw...

Since you already have Deathshroud as troops (assuming PotL?) and only 2 drop pods - why not use those extra Deathshroud with a third drop pod for your troops to replace the Vets?

 

Nothing wrong with a few BA to build and paint.. but you know.. that Leviathan will be calling you more ... in those lovely Death Guard colours...  you know you'll have to put up a picture here when it's done too ;)

I'm actually somewhat thinking about Orbital assault at the moment... Massed teleporting Deathshroud/ Grave Wardens, Tacs/ Flamers/ Quad Mortars/ Dreads in pods!

 

I have 7 Drop pods from my BA that I can use. I'm not buying more, I'll just keep these black/ silver and generic. I'd also rather not spend money on a Dreadclaw, but a Kharybdis could sway me, if only because it's so damn unique, cool and uncommon!

 

If not just an infantry Pride army, seeing if it can work. Tanks are not very DG, other than the odd Vindicator and LoW of course!

 

And yep - due to my scheme my DG should be a pretty speedy paint job in batches once I get going - expect some pics :)

So, uhh... I've decided to re-open my thread as a general Heresy Plog for the section (as many of you do so!) with my finally diving into the Heresy proper with the release of the Talons.

 

Spent downtime in the Past Week building these up - I'm just waiting my Saggitarum and another squad of Custodes and Sisters in the mail and i'll have everything I need for my first army list!
