So I will probably soon face my friend's alpha legion possesed bomb with disco lord. He's a tough opponent which I've never won against (in like 30 games at least). But I have an idea to beat his possesed bomb which heavily depends on playing dark angels. Here goes:
The possessed bomb:
His main tactic would be a Lord Discordant to run up into the board, warlord trait, chapter tactic, miasma of pestilence and benediction of darkness will give him -4 to hit while making the possessed untargetable unless they're closest. He will probably advance as far up the board as he can with everything.
My units to counter this:
Interrogator chaplain w/ "watched" warlord trait and "recitation of focus"
6 black knights
8 black knights
Talonmaster and sammy. (Impeccable mobility and corvus occulus)
1 dark talon
I'll probably let him go first and hide my bikes turn 1. Chaplain will auto deny his miasma of pestilence and give +1 to hit on the smaller BK squad.
They will advance up the board, hopefully within 12" of the discolord, and stand in a formation so they can't be wrapped by any possessed (i think their big bases will help). I might as well try to advance my Landspeeder vengeance into 12" so I also can pop the full re-roll strat. Now the discolord will only be -1 for my BK's and they'll be hitting on a 4+, probably wounding him so the rest of my ravenwing gets +1 to hit. At this point all rw will be hitting him on a -2 modifier with full re-rolls, hopefully taking him down. If not, the landspeeder can make 1 whirlwind autohit with "datalink telimetry" as backup. If the small BK squad doesn't get wrapped his turn, i hope I can take out his possessed then. Thoughts on this?
