So, along the similar lines to my 10 strong Grey Hunter pack with 10 total, 1 GHPL with BG, BP, PF now, 1 WGPL with CS/BP, 2 GH's with PG's, BP, CS, and finally 6 GH's with BG, BP, CS
I also have a standard Blood Claw pack, featuring the somewhat more normal 1WGPL with BP/PF, 1 BCPL with BP/CS, 12 BC's stock, 1 WGBL BP/CS, 1 WP CA/BP (CA = Crozius Arcanum).
What I'm wondering, more for the general options approach, are your "default" pack setups, combinations of HQ/WGPL and GH/BC/SkC/SwC/etc. that you are finally settling on?
For trying to generate Lone Wolves, yes, a small-ish BC or GH pack with minimal/no upgrades taken, or, if so inclined, the Lone Wolf option from the Index is still viable. If the Index LW was updated by last year's CA 2017, by all means, use that entry.
Still, what are people currently finding to be their pillars? As in, what are the, "I cannot fight as I do without (x)." Please provide feedback, all; I'm pretty sure I and many others can benefit from both the new meta paradigm as well as how you and others are adjusting based upon feedback to others outside full context of any given individual's current context.
My GH pack needing the PF/SS WGPL changed over to CS/SS and the GHPL going from BG, BP, CS to BG, BP, PF. Things like that; what is/are your current must have/s?
Kallas, I hope you had fun, and at that, a blast! What did you learn? What would you try differently? How, and what, might you adjust to try and get a fun win? I realize MSU can be very powerful if run right; would you ever run more per Troops pack, or do they just drop too fast? Either way is fine; I just want to know your line of thinking in terms of list building, list theory, your strategies, order of strategic operations, tactics, when to use which tactics, and, logistics (wargear choices).
I am starting to reread this thread a little. As a consideration, if I ever manage to fit Wolf Scouts into my lists, I would seriously consider the nearly needed use of a Land Speeder Storm for a ride. If so, it helps to make a mobile harasser pack, because even five roving BG's is going to tear up light troops. If not, then have just have a plan for what you need them to do.
And, the fun part: as far as the Stormhawk goes, I typed up elsewhere, but I will make sure it gets seen, as I am in need of feedback as well.
Option 1: Skyhammer Missile Launcher, Icarus Stormcannon, twin Assault Cannons.
Option 2: Las-Talon, Typhoon Missile Launcher, twin Assault Cannons.
For each role, the former being anti air, and the latter being ground support, the ground support role is more expensive, but, due to the points difference, along with what the ground support brings, I just wonder if it's a possibly too expensive but highly mobile Land Speeder Typhoon? The LSP is pretty solid, but about half the price. Unlike the Stormhawk, no LS can ever fit both a single AsC along with a TML. the Stormhawk can do not only a TML, but two AsC and still has a two shot per turn half range Lascannon for anti-armor. With the TML, it can dual role as anti-light infantry, or, with the twin Krak Missiles, do a decent backup shot to anti-armor.
