Hi lads, throwing a new list I'm tinkering with at you.
I don't know that it works that well, but there is a bit of thought behind the less "conventional" stuff. The main premise of the list is the Teleport Strike Assault of Terminators and their supporting characters. It can either come down as a big ol' blob and try and maximize charges through FttF as well as benefiting from a series of buffs, or it can spread out across the board as the mission demands. Same goes for the characters. The Apothecary and Ancient speak for themselves, but they could teleport with the Terminators or support the backline as needed. The first of the "wonkier" stuff is the Champion. At 90 points, he's one of our cheaper characters and between Sword Strike Stance, Hammerhand and the Blade of the Forsworn, he should knock off any enemy characters, elite units and even do some hurt on a vehicle (Knights and the likes notwithstanding). On the flip side the Blade Shield Stance plus Sanctuary should allow him to survive against all but the most ruthless of attackers (or a whole load of dice, yikes) through a 1+/3++. He also provides the FttF. He's part one of the "experiment". The Librarian is pretty standard, not much to add about him. The Grand Master exists to support the Purgators and... the Land Raider, through his re-roll aura and Ethereal Manipulation. The idea is to hide the Raider behind LoS blocking terrain and have the Purgators cast Astrail Aim to shoot through it - hopefully forcing the opponent either to commit resources/move out of position to destroy it, while the rest of the army takes board control. Finally, the Interceptors - 2 units of 9... the thing that bugs me is that I lose flexibility by them not being 10-man, since I can't split them to go for a smite train. There's another rendition of the list that subs the GM for a Chaplain (Projection/Power), that loses out on the re-roll 1s aura, but could manage to get full-rerolls on the Raider through Projection + Ethereal Manipulation. This rendition also has 2x10 Interceptors.
Here's the list itself, let me know what you guys think:
