Thunderstrike Challenge Contingent: 2000pt ITC List

So as a bit of fun I decided to make a list based off a post made on another website. This person wondered if Devilfish spam could be a tactical option. So I decided the best thing to do would be to create this list as an example of really the most spammable you can make devilfish. Now I would love ...

Re: Thunderstrike Vengeance Contingent: 2000pt ITC List

Sorry, I was putting that log down as things that needed changed. This is the new list that has been modified based upon those changes. Thunderstrike Revenge Contingent (104PL, 1995 pts, 6 Command Points) Supreme Command Detachment HQ Commander [2x Mv1 Gun Drone] [4x Fusion Blaster] Commander [2x Mv...

Re: yet another competitive attempt 2000 points

I would actually counter taking full gun drone squads on every squad. While in theory that may sound beneficial, once you get up to 4 you're risking losing 1 to morale and you need every single drone you can spare. Now in squads of 3 or 2 they work fantastically as the odds of them dying to morale a...

Re: Thunderstrike Vengeance Contingent: 2000pt ITC List

So after some due rest and recovery, I've come back to comment. First, it has been well noted that I messed up. I'm still used to 7th edition drops being the nomenclature. I do mean 7 Deepstriking units. Now there's a lot of talk about why I have such little marker support. It comes down to the lack...

Thunderstrike Vengeance Contingent: 2000pt ITC List

So for full Transparency this is a list that was taken to BAO by myself. It contains Commander Spam and Drone Spam with a Y'Vahra for tasting. Now I am presenting it to this group to get some differing opinions on how this list could be more effective. This is because while I felt it performed up to...

Re: Strength from Death and You

I do keep track of the FAQs very well. Unfortunately, it doesn't say anything about shots. And while I'm happy to throw that out there as the basis of an argument it ultimately doesn't say shots so RAW it has nothing to do with my case. I know, it's bull how that doesn't apply but that's how the com...

Strength from Death and You

For those unaware, I am a competitive player. So I often find these fiddly little questions that actually have a large scale impact on the game. And here is one of them. Tau Riptide Unit 1: Vre'Khan Vre'Naga and Vre'Kais Ynnari Reborn Warhost A Jetbike Farseer Warlock Conclave 6 units of Windriders ...

Re: 8th edition

So for more AoS-y Rend to AP Translations, speculation abound, I doubt that -4 Saves is going to be possible outside confluences of special rules. Therefore, in my mind, the AP goes something like this AP-/6 = 0 AP5/4 =-1 AP3/2 =-2 AP1 =-3 This means that our plasma is actually a decent option again...

Re: Thunderstrike Theorycraft: ITC 1850pts lists

As a follow up to the first list, I've done major reworking on some of my old lists to accommodate the changing times. And while it has considerably less flak, it is a list designed against Gladius play which I'm all too familiar with. But it now has multiple answers to problems beyond just that. Th...

Re: Guilliman returns: Dealing with an Imperial Primarch

Messed up my wording there a bit. I meant to say that Jump and Jet Pack Infantry are "Infantry" and they are allowed to embark. It's just they usually have rules that make them less desirable in transports (Jet-Pack confers Very Bulky for example).

Re: Guilliman returns: Dealing with an Imperial Primarch

Ok so from a Competitive stand you should not spend the points on RG. He's a powerhouse in melee (sounds familiar Abaddon) but has very few options to get in close. No vehicles can transport him because Monstrous Creatures can't embark (that's only infantry and special exceptions). He can't join a u...

Thunderstrike Theorycraft: ITC 1850pts lists

It comes to mind that I've created a half dozen lists all under varying titles with more or less the same goals. Therefore, I feel it necessary to create a compendium of lists that I create under the Thunderstrike name. As such periodically, I will post new lists in an attempt to attain a high level...

Thunderstrike Tempest Contingent V2: ITC 1850pts List

To preface this I'll explain how this all came about. As a competitive player, I tend to play solely what is optimal in the sense that I can survive the entire game and keep up on Victory Points. Then I had my life changed. Someone made a comment about the Master of Ambush Warlord Trait and putting ...

Re: Farsight Enclave List idea

To begin, because you don't list any wargear they have I honestly don't know how to level comment nor critique. That aside running on just the units listed you should be alright. A minor technical error is that Stealth Suits (unless I'm mistaken) are Elites. If you want to run this CAD idea I sugges...

Re: Thunderstrike Tornado Contingent: ITC 1850pts List

We've already seen that list. It's called the Thunderstrike Meteor Platoon. We also got to see how the dawnblade simply can't stand up because of the required auxiliary. It simply makes it too expensive even when taxing in a small auxiliary. In addition Shadowsun can't be used in that Crisis Bomb wh...

Thunderstrike Tornado Contingent: ITC 1850pts List

This is a continuation of the idea that a combination between a fusion blade Commander and Commander shadowsun create the optimal setup. Thunderstrike Tornado Contingent (Warhammer 40...

Thunderstrike Gale Contingent: ITC 1850pts List

In my continuing Competitive efforts I've come across a rift that I haven't seemingly been able to get over. This rift is due to my inability to accept the Monster Mash list as the Prime Competitive list for the Empire. So I did ever more number crunching. I found the 3-1-1 Riptide Wing and saw its ...

Competitive Tau: The 3-1-1 Riptide Wing vs. Double Surge

In my continuing competitive efforts I've come to a point where I am looking toward what can be done to fully optimize the Tau arsenal. In my hunting I've seen many a double Stormsurge list do well but we never seem to be the winner of any tournament. In the same light I've seen the 3-1-1 Riptide Wi...
