I am currently playing 3 online tournaments (1 battle per week) each with a different list as hone my 9th edition skills
One of the tournaments I am running my modified terminator saga list. The terminators are now a supplementary unit instead of the center piece.
The list was inspired by podcasts about vietnam MACV SOG and how a small elite unit of infantry relied on artillery and air superiority
In my mind it fits with the counter assault strength of our army so I went for it
Nobody can shut down the scorpius artillery battery while I have a beatstick WL and the armor of russ there
I have a melta gunship on call if my opponent fails to invest in anti air (I'd say half the lists in this pod are vulnerable)
If my gunship is in danger I strategic reserve it and let it do an alpha strike before dying. Flyers get to strategic reserve anywhere like a deep strike
Yes my terminators are using MELTA instead of plasma...with all the scorpius firepower I decided I don't need the shots of the plasma build anymore
These terminators provide 5 BS2 melta shots with a possible charge after. With all the artillery at my disposal it is easy to punch a hole in the backlines where I want them to land as well.
