2000 pts vs. Sisters of Battle

Heya folks, I've got an important league game coming up against a guy that runs pure sisters. From what I know he runs something like 6 Immolators, 2 exorcists, Celestine, some dominions, some seraphim, a squad of arco flagelents. I've never played against sisters so I'm here to have my list checked...

Re: 2000 pts vs. Tzeentch Demons (no Magnus)

If he's doing just Tzeentch demons, should I just expect like, fateweaver and then just tons of horrors? I guess it depends what edition the army is from. If he's properly updated it to 8th Edition and is bringing a truly competitive 8th Edition list, then expect a deathstar blob of 3-4 Greater Dae...

Re: 2000 pts vs. Tzeentch Demons (no Magnus)

First, I don't know what other units he will be running. His declared faction is "chaos demons" for the league, meaning at least 1001 of his 2000 points need to be from the demons army. Other than that, he told me is running "all tzeentch baby" and no Magnus. Thats unfortunately...

Re: 2000 pts vs. Tzeentch Demons (no Magnus)

Looks like a solid list! Let's just tweak a few things- split the Gun Drones down, fix the Commander loadouts, give the Coldstar an ATS, etc. The suggestions people have given in this thread have been good. Generally Daemons don't have armor saves, do you know if he's running all Daemons or it ther...

Re: 2000 pts vs. Tzeentch Demons (no Magnus)

Use your drones very smart, a lot of the damage you can take here can be based on Smite spam, your drones will be gold if you use them around commanders or high value units to absorb such damage. That's actually a question I needed to have resolved. Does savior protocols work the same way with Smit...

Re: 2000 pts vs. Tzeentch Demons (no Magnus)

All solid observations. Normally I run the suits/ CIB commander with ATS. However, with most units likely depending on their invul save only (demons being demons) i figured it wouldn't be worth it this time.

2000 pts vs. Tzeentch Demons (no Magnus)

Hey all, I've got a league game coming up with limited intel on my opponent (list tailoring is accepted and basically required in this league). All I know is what he told me yesterday in that he runs Tzeentch demons and no Magnus (doesn't like the nipple armor, go figure). I'm not really sure what t...

Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

So I had a thought. I know he's going to be running a lot of venoms, which have the fly keyword, but also have that flicker field nonsense that puts me at -1 to him them at range. So here's the question, would it be worth subbing out one of the fusion commander's fusion blasters for a velocity track...

Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

For Hammerheads I'd try the Fire Support Hammerhead with Twin heavy burst cannon from Forgeworld. 16 S6 AP-1 shots sounds pretty nice. Longstrike can't take it unfortunately but he can buff them to BS2+ at least. Longstrike himself is without a doubt best with a Railgun. Also, not necessarily that ...

Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

No. The ionhead wouldn't be worth it for the effective range. As well as that, the railgun has higher strength and AP stats that the ion cannon's overcharge, and doesn't have the penalty of inflicting mortal wounds on the user (though longstrike does negate this). It means that the ion cannon isn't...

Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

If you are playing against Dark Eldar (really don't like the new name 'Drukari' or however you spell it), then there are some key points about your army to consider: 1. Are you taking any Heavy Support in the battle??? I would advise against it. At the moment, my XV88 Broadside squadron and my thre...

Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

Clever, I'll see if i can move some points around how i could make that happen.

One thing I have noticed is that none of their saves are 3+ (minus a couple units), and they lots of them have 5++ saves. So, by that logic, it doesn't really make sense to have anything throwing out AP -2

What do you figure is the most effective way of actually get said flamers in range?

Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

Hey gang, I've got a 2k game coming up against a dark eldar player. I had a 1k game against him earlier this week and managed to squeak out a win, but i was hoping to come in with a bit more of an idea of what to do. He's probably going to run a whole bunch of venoms, so the biggest question i have ...

Re: 2000 Point TAC List

Took your advice and dropped the second fusion commander, minimized pathfinder squad sizes, and dropped the marker light from the stealth squad. With those points i gave the second hammerhead a SMS, added markerlight drones to the solo drone squad, added the ethereal, and gave each of the bodyguards...

Re: 2000 Point TAC List

Solid advice, thank you!

If it were up to you, do you see any surplusage that could get shaved down to give each suit a missile pod and maybe squeeze in an ethereal?

Re: 2000 Point TAC List

After doing some more research I ended up changing the list a bit. Plasma is out, and as is their squad of drones. I'm repurposing that squad as crisis bodyguards for longstrike, who'll also be my warlord with feel no pain. Here's the updated list. +++ 8th Edition List (Warhammer 40,000 8th Edition)...

Re: Interaction between Tau Crisis Bodyguard and Savior Protocols

Makes sense, I was pretty sure it wasn't RAI, but I was wondering what people's interpretation of RAW was.
