So I've got a game at the weekend for our local ladder campaign...
Essentially the rules are:
- Open War Cards
- 1500 Points
- Don't be a with your list
Seeing as they're easy to transport and all painted to tabletop basic or better (plus they're woefully under-run for me!) I'm thinking of bringing the Golden Boys out for a spin.
However, 1500 is not a lot to work with!
I'd like to bring a Battalion so I at least have some CP to work with, as at this points level I think strats will be key in maximising performance.
3 Man squads seem too small to achieve anything, so I'm thinking one 3 Man to hold any backfield with a couple SS, but otherwise two 5 man units to roam about with a mix of Spear + Shield. Even this though is about half of my points, and I still need 2 HQs!
I can bring a Bike Captain (Aquila Relic + Deny Warlord Trait) and three bikes to give me some mobility aaaaand... Then I'm stuck!
I've got about 350ish to play with, but I need another HQ as part of this too!
In my collection I've got:
- 9 Allarus (including Captain + Vexilla)
- A few other Vexilla
- A couple more Guardians
- Telemon (Could be a Contemptor Exemplar as I have Las Storm + Caestus)
- A couple Shield Captains
- Trajaan Valoris
I'd gladly remove the bikes and rework the list around Allarus too (as they're super cool and a little less powerful!)
Or I could grab a Vexilla (maybe a Relic one for Fearless and a Mortal Wound Nova?) in Allarus to drop in where needed with an Allarus Shield Captain too?
I'll be against an absolutely beautiful mixed Imperium army (Inq/ AM/ Sisters etc)
