Las Pulsars all the way, they add ranged anti tank into an army that has next to none.

I really don't like the Flyer.

Uh I must say that Orion Assault Ship looks really amazing. The new pics of it are surprisingly good compared with the old one.

I was sold on it,but now I think it's a little odd...

Cannot argue with its sheer dakka though.

The Orion is a really nice kit, I picked one up at the open day and it's the first time i have actually wanted to paint the interior detail as well. Usually i just glue the doors shut on vehicles.

Going to post some full data and analysis in my WIP thread later, but a couple of thoughts and tactical insight from the Throne of Skulls weekend. Most are obvious but nice to see it in practice:

  • Don't ever fight Valdor in combat with anything. Even with your own Hetaeron Guard. He's terrifying.
  • Las-Pulsar jetbikes are good. So good that most people took 6 (I was tame with 3). They are incredible for killing medium tanks and terminators at 36" away without retaliation.
  • Deep Striking a 3 man guardian spear troops choice into the backfield is ace. It's "Cheap" and they can absorb a lot of small arms/ anything not AP2, then mulch pretty much anything there and claim objectives etc. Run them to spread out on the drop.
  • Telemon is perfect with one fist and one gun. Obscene dakka and 4 WS6 I5 S10 AP2 Shred attacks even when charged means it will whittle down the most elite units. Doesn't really care about pens (usually just shaken) but things like Shatter Shells will just glance you to death endlessly, even with a 4++
  • Transport is very hardy and good for just keeping dudes safe. 4HP is tasty.
  • The Heavy Blaze Cannon... Don't bother. The multi-shot mode is nice and lets it savage up to 7 marines a turn, ignoring FNP even but that solid shot is just sooooo unreliable. I think I managed 2 glancing HP all weekend - if that! YMMV of course with luck but even AV13 is a gamble, especially if it has any kind of save.

7 marines? It's Heavy 4? Were you referencing the Caladius or Telemon's version of the blaze cannon here? The latter shouldn't ignore FNP as it's only S7

Sorry I meant in addition to the TL Lastrum on the front too!

 

The Telemon will kill 7 with it's version though ;)

OK, cool. I figured there was something I was missing - and I was :)
