-Heavy Support - Mortis Contemptor Dreadnought - 2x Twin Lascannons - 168 pts



2,000 pts
3CPs base + 11(detachments) - 2 (Chapter Master) -2 (Extra Relics) - 1 (Ultramarine Relic) - 1 (extra trait on Warlord) = 8 CPs


Contemptors, Ranged Lieutenant, Techmarine hang in back as fire Support. Leviathan leads the way with Librarian buffing him. Everything else follows. Squads peel away to sit on objectives as everything walks its way up.

Born Heroes allows Characters to Heroically Intervene 6”, Nobility Made Manifest allows the Infantry to Heroically Intervene as if they were Characters. Stealthy encourages my opponent to get closer to stop my extra Armor save for marching in cover.

A 9” re-roll hits AND give Heroic Intervention as if they are Characters (6”) seems pretty solid to me.

If someone can convince me Nobility Made Manifest and Born Heroes doesn’t work the way I theorize, any suggestions on a second Warlord Trait and Successor trait?

Any other feedback?

Thanks

Unfortunately, I think only ultramarines can take the Nobility made Manifest warlord trait. This list ok other than that. It may have some trouble with tables that have a lot of LOS blocking terrain. Ultramarine chapter tactics may not be bad on this list. Do you still want to go successor?

Ultramarines warlord traits are available to Successors. The Standard of Macragge inviolate is also available due to a Stratagem.

Ok, I see the warlord thing under the Successor Chapter rules. That's pretty sick actually.

I really want to give the Chapter Master the warlord trait The Imperium’s Sword to add a little extra work he could do, but where would I move Adept of the Codex?

I finally got to play this list this weekend...against castling Iron Hands. We had the same number of drops and I got first turn, which definitely led to my huge victory!

The Chapter Master with the Vox did a ridiculous amount of work!

I think I need to drop the Aggressors. I love them so much but I really need something to threaten the back line. I was thinking a 3-man team of Plasma Inceptors or a 5-man team of Bolter Inceptors.
