I'll be running 3 battalions of rubrics and a battalion of Demons for the 3++ lord of change. I'll also have 3 predators. No Magnus, no Forgeworld stuff. 30 tzaangors.

 

Opponent has 60 interecessors, probably with max stalker bolt rifles. 3 Repulsors

 

Is there any way to fight this other than bogging the list down in combat?

 

The purpose of this is to showcase 2 fully painted 4000pt armies to promote the store, but I'd like to do the best I can with what I have. Gonna be rough. Tips appreciate- maybe I can get full lists soon.

My thought would be Horror Spam with Reinforcement Points. Let the Stalkers constantly waste damage on 1W models that split to replace losses so that he can't clear objectives, especially since they're troops. Also, add in some Flamers and Exalted Flamers either in the Warp or on the table. Ultramarines tend to want you to do something so that they can counter it. Don't play their game. 

 

Don't charge into Overwatch. Stop and shoot the daylights out of them at point blank range. Flying Screamers over them to chop off some heads would be fun too. 

 

Make him waste a TON of his army's abilities and reduce the value he gets for his points. If the Spears charge YOU at that range, Flamers of Tzeentch will just melt them in Overwatch.

 

On a similar note, bring Mutaliths, Defilers, and Vindicators. Lots of guaranteed damage at closer ranges that he has to charge in order to deal with and can then assist with counter charges or throw out the kind of Overwatch that makes him nervous. Vindis and Mutaliths with a screen of Horrors, Warpflamer Rubricae or Flamers of Tzeentch will be frustrating to a UM successor. You'll have to carefully manage HOW you close, but I think you can do it.

Take as many Rubricae as you can. Stick them at boltering range. Apply ap-2 bolters to face. 

 

That is kind of my solution to everything that is not T8.....to be fair.

Amen. Even in the solution I suggested, this must remain at the core. It's who we are.

How did it go?

One thing I thought of was the Scorpius (I know Forgeworld) or even Forgefiends for the S8 damage 2 against Ultramarines which will typically feature a lot of infantry.
