Hey guys with the points updates from chapter approved I have written a list for an upcoming doubles event next year. The event is 1000 points per player, most likely 2 detachments per 1000 points.
My ally is likely to be running Skarbrand with blood letters and other melee orientated units.
Exalted Sorceror, force staff
Hellforged Contemptor, Deathclaw with combi-bolter, multi-melta
Hellforged Sicaran, heavy bolter sponsons
5 Rubric marines, force staff, soulreaper cannon
5 Rubric marines, force axe, soulreaper cannon
5 Rubric marines, force sword
The Sicaran is fantastic with the points reduction, it is only 190 points with heavy bolter sponsons and pumps out 17 shots a turn! Likewise the contemptor is now only 172 points with this configuration.
I don't have a lot of bodies on the table but that is always going to be the case unless I take Tzangors or cultists, which isn't the route I want to go.
Look forward to hearing some feedback,
thanks for reading!
