Had one of the more enjoyable games I have played recently with a list I really enjoyed. Its played using IH but its a "successor." I have changed a few odds and ends based on how I wanted things to work and how they ended up working. Primaris Apothecary and a Primaris LT were added at the expensive of reiver squad and a hellblaster
Captain in gravis, warlord, Aegis Ferrum, All Flesh is Weak
Primaris Chappie, catechism of fire
6 Intercessors with stalkers
6 Intercessors with Autobolters
6 Intercessors with Autobolter
2 Implusors with shield dome, iron hail heavy stubber and 2 storm bolters
1 Repulsor dakka variant with Twin Las cannon
Chapter Master in Phobos armor(probably wont give him IronStone next time).
Aggressors x3 boltstorm gauntlets
Primaris Apothecary(added to keep vanguard detachment) maybe will use the new strat for him)
Relic COntemptor with 2 Kheres assault cannons
Repulsor Executioner heavy laser destroyer + stuff
I played against a Tesseract Vault necron list and had a blast. I used the stalkers chapter master, contemptor, Hellblasters and Executioner to hold a flank in a building. Then the impulsors and repulsor pushed the other flank against his 3 squads of immortals, destroyers, and characters. There were enough bodies that once my autobolter guys and command section got out and pushed forward they had the one turn of no chaplain buffs and then it turned into a perfect storm situation and I just started annihilating squad after squad. I did switch to tactical doctrine to take advantage of the -1Ap. One of those autobolter 6 man teams took out the final wounds on the Vault even. Pointwise it stayed close until the end and I finally took out the wraiths and deciever who were camping an objective in my deployment zone. All he had left at the end were the lord and cryptek who veiled out to safety when the writing was on the wall with his own center force became clear.
I felt I really needed an LT with my mobile force with its mass of S4 weapons to get just a little more ummph out of them. I had a 5 man reiver squad along with heavy hellblasters. Since I had so many intercessors and light guns on my transports I felt that staying in the heavy doctrine didnt really benefit me much. So I dropped the reivers and swapped out the heavies for the standard hellblasters. So I needed a new elite for my vanguard and the cheapest useful option is a Primaris Apothecary. The question is on where to put him.
Should I drop an intercessor and toss him in an Impulsor or put him in the rear with the hellblaster/stalker guys?
