So I started a WIP thread on my Mordians in the Forge section because it was being swamped by those over zealous pompous astartes.
Someone suggested I post here too.
To avoid double posting I thought I would focus more on the tourament I will be entering with it with just the occasion shout out when I've updated the original thread.
Quick background started with Mordians back in 3rd before taking a long (15yr) break. Had about 30 odd mordians and some praetorians. Since then I have picked up another 30-40 odd.
I've stripped off my 3rd ed paints and the paint from the models I bought and will be updating their scheme to fit with 7th ed.
The tournament is only 750pt single allied detachment FOC (no formations). So I am using it as an excuse to get all my mordians done even though I wont use them all.
The tournament will be 3 games and scoring consists of primary marker objectives, secondary [BRB] malestrom and tertiary points based on kill point differential as well as the usual 3 suspects from the main rule book.
The list I have in mind is
Lord Commissar w/ m. bombs
Primaris Psyker ML2
1 PCS w/ heavy flamer
3x Infantry squad w/ lascannons and GL
(1x sgt w/ m. bombs, 2x dedicated taruox)
That puts me at 750pts on the nose.
The tournament is meant to be somewhat friendly. The TO has already stated they will turn down any cheesy/OP lists (scatterbike spam, 2++/2++, 2+ FNP deathstars etc).
My goal with the list was to try and exploit IGs ability to spam somewhat useful troops at low points, whilst still having some mobility.
I'm hoping for a 4+ on the IG/AM WL trait list to either gain orders or relentless.
Also of note as allied detachment was designed not to be a primary detachment you do not receive the ideal mission commander rule.
I'm also hoping will ML2 I have a better chance of picking up that 4++ on the divination table.
30 relentless guardsmen w/ lascannons and 4++ sounds like fun :-)
Ill most likely be blobbing the guard unless I can see a reason not to do that for any particular game.
The taurox with their built in dozer blades and obsec will be running around grabbing objectives until they meet their demise (quite promptly I imagine).
The pcs will chill in the vendetta to grab end of game objectives and the vendetta line breaker.
I'm sure the wyvren needs no explanation ;-)
The tournament is end of January so I have a couple more weeks to get my models painted. Hopefully I'll be able to get a couple of practice games in too before then.
