Played a game with the SW



Man - hampering yourself makes you hate your army sometimes. I know we all try to sculpt a list to make things fun - and Chris with his Nids had a fun Nid army - it just felt like I was - I just don't know. Like I wasn't able to make it at 11. It is life and I need to play the list more - and as usual I changed it up a bit again. Of course my scouts sucked ass - rolling a 1 to come in - I swear if I need to roll a 3+ I just can't. FU Njal.

This weekend I got a tournament in Houston. It is a no comp thing and I am just not sure what to bring. I could go with Daemons, as I enjoy playing them, or a super mean SW list that just lets me play what I want. I just don't know. Will see. I will think about it. Current Da Boyz SW list that I think I will bring -

HQ: Wolf Lord, Bike, Saga of the Bear, Thunder Hammer, Storm Shield, Runic Armor - 250pts
HQ: Wolf Priest, Bike, Runic Armor - 155pts
HQ: Wolf Priest, Saga of the Hunter - 110pts
HQ: Rune Priest, JaWs, Living Lightning - 100pts
Elites: Wolf Scouts x 5, MoW, Power Weapon, Meltagun - 115pts
Elites: Wolf Guard x 6 - 243pts
Wolf Guard, Power Armor, Power Weapon - Grey Hunters # 1
Wolf Guard, Power Armor, Power Weapon - Grey Hunters # 2
Wolf Guard, Power Armor, Power Weapon - Grey Hunters # 3
Wolf Guard, Power Armor, Power Weapon, Bike - Swift Claws
Wolf Guard, Power Armor, MoW - Wolf Scouts
Wolf Guard, Terminator Armor, Cyclone ML - Long Fangs
Troops: Grey Hunters X 8, Flamer, Power Weapon, MoW, Rhino - 185pts
Troops: Grey Hunters X 8, Flamer, Power Weapon, MoW, Rhino - 185pts
Troops: Grey Hunters X 8, Meltagun, Power Weapon, MoW, Rhino - 190pts
FA: Swift Claws X 5, Meltagun, Power Weapon, Attack Bike, Multi-Melta - 190pts
Heavy: Long Fangs x 6, Missile Launcher X 2, Heavy Bolter X 3 - 125pts

1848pts right there - Thoughts? It gives me lots of options - the Wolf Priest with the Scouts should be fun and I get to paint another Space Goat to make a cool looking model. Plus it will just be neat to have a crazy Goat with some red facial stuff or something else designed. Something neat. Either way I think it will work out cool. If not I try to fit in a Iron Priest on Thunder Wolf to give me some kind of Crazy killer to use. I just don't know. This thought just gives me more goats - which I can't say isn't bad.

Also here is a DE list I just kinda threw together. I think it might be fun, has no SC and is designed to create different avenues of assault/damage etc. Plus I get to go zoom zoom with Reavers :).

HQ: Archon, Agoniser, Combat Drugs, Shadowfield, Soul Trap - 135pts
HQ: Haemonculus, Liquifer Gun, Webway Portal - 95pts
Haemonculus, Liquifer Gun, Webway Portal - 95pts
Elites: Incubi X 4, Klaivex, Onslaught, Venom, Splinter Cannons X 2 - 193pts
Elites: Kabalite Elites X 4, Blaster X 3, Venom, Splinter Cannons X 2 - 168pts
Elites: Kabalite Elites X 4, Blaster X 3, Venom, Splinter Cannons X 2 - 168pts
Troops: Wyches X 15, Shardnet/Impaler, Razorflails X 2, Hekatrix, Agoniser - 195pts
Troops: Wyches X 15, Shardnet/Impaler, Razorflails X 2, Hekatrix, Agoniser - 195pts
Troops: Kabalite Warriors X 10, Splinter Cannon, Raider, Flickerfield - 185pts
Troops: Kabalite Warriors X 10, Splinter Cannon, Raider, Flickerfield - 185pts
FA: Reavers X 3 - 64pts
FA: Reavers X 3 - 64pts
Heavy: Cronos Parasite Engine, Blast Gun - 100pts

It also isn't too bad pocket book wise.
1 Box Incubi - 30 Bucks
3 Boxes Wyches - 75 bucks
3 Boxes Warriors - 75 bucks
2 Boxes Reavers - 70 bucks
1 Tomb Spyder to convert - 23 bucks
1 Archon - 15 bucks
2 Haemonculous's - 25 bucks
2 Raiders - 66 bucks
3 Vypers - Depends on Ebay for junked Vypers to cannibalize - 10-15bucks

Total - $400.00 - minus discount/Tournament winnings. Right where I would want a new army cost to be to make it worth wile in my brain. Is it any good? Who the hell knows. I got some nice anti troop, some anti vehicle. Some stupid Pain Token nonsense as well as some good assault to kill tough things etc. Will play test it with some old DE we have locally. Make the new models just look so much better.

So yeah - those are thoughts. It is about time to jump off the blog - gonna throw down with some Halo Reach with the kick ass wife.

SW list looks interesting, the number of HQs might get you dinged but everything else looks plenty diverse. I've decided to just say fuck it and bring my Loganwing :P

DE list looks fun too, WWP armies are gonna be very interesting. Personally I'd like to see Beastmasters and blasters/heat lances on the jetbikes.

Reach, you've got until Tuesday to play with me, then it's gonna be Fallout all day erry day.

Haha - will need to get a game in. We played late last night. Will try to get on at a better night time tonight.

Will see - I get more and more - just fuck it play something not horrible as I look at the lists. I think it might just be worth it to just play something nutty and say deal with it heh.

I'm liking the DE list. Can do lots of nasty things, versatile. Also it's a very fast army as well.

I like your SW list for the Da Boyz GT and think it should fare well. The Wolf Scouts with the Wolf Priest and WG attached is very helpful - I would run the WG with a power fist to get that into the unit... Helps round them out a bit more.

: )

That is what I am thinking about too - it will give me a much needed fist in there for some - well fisting hahahha.

Thomas aka Goatboy said...

I will have to drop the meltagun on the Grey Hunters to get a guy in there with a fist - so will see how it goes. Or I could drop some of the grey hunter units - etc. Or go back to one Blood Claw unit instead of the 3rd grey hunter unit.

Thoughts?

I would drop the Wolf Guard attached from the Long Fangs to free up points. He is awesome but one spot that I don't see as necessary. Having the power fist in the scout squad with the Wolf Priest is really useful. This might even free up enough points to add combi meltas to your other Wolfguard. It's alway nice to have another melta shot up close and personal.

Hi Thomas,

Why did you change your Thunderwolves to bikes? Different game style or just experimenting?


By the way regarding the list I was thinking, this is what I came up with:

Wolf Lord (TW,Bear,TH,SS,Runic,Wolves x2) 280

WGBL
(TW,War,FA,SS,Runic,Wolves x2) 245

Rune Priest (lightning,Jaws,Woolftooth) 105

2x 10 Grey Hunters
(x2 mg,PW,MotW)+Rhino 660

9 Grey Hunters (fl,MotW)+Rhino 185

Lone Wolf (TA,CF,SS,x2 FW) 105

5 Wolf Scouts (mg,MotW,PW,PP) 130

2x 6 Long Fangs (x3 ml,x2 hb) 260

This sums up to 1750 points.

I threw in a Lone Wolf for fun and I also believe that he will be pretty annoying. You can ignore him for long. Also I buffed up a bit the scouts.

So what do you think of it?
