[1850] FSE CAD+ Ret Cadre+ Drone Net

Post#1 » Feb 09 2017 12:54

After working and reworking my list I think I've tweaked it to something I'm happy with. C+C welcome.

The idea is that Shadowsun joins the CIB suits and gets into position turn 1, maybe take a pot shot if they can. The strike squad sets up backfield on an objective (if possible) and same will the missile suit (though I was considering giving him two flamers and putting him into reserves as well, thoughts on that would be appreciated). Drones also get into position turn 1 and hide out. Turn 2 everything else comes down. Commander joins the plasma squad and tanks for them. They've all got target locks so they can fire at a different target from the drones.

As we have discussed on one of the other list building threads Shadowsun has been hit hard by the FAQ and cannot deploy with anything that does not itself have the Infiltrate rule. So other than allowing for certain formations she can only deploy with Stealth Teams or Kroot.

It is a shame as we will see very little of Shadowsun on the tabletop but it is what it is.

Yeah... I'm aware of as much. The idea there would be to just run them on the board using her warlord trait to get up in it faster. Also boosts the survival of the suits with her stealth and shroud. I could of course put them into reserves and deep strike when that comes up.

I think that according to the FAQ even if Shadowsun doesn't infiltrate she can't deploy with the XV8s. Your list looks like it would be good once everybody arrives but I have doubts about whether Shadowsun, 2 XV8s and 6 fire warriors will be able to survive any knid of alpha strike

Well, the drone net would be on the field as well. But yeah, alpha strikes would really suck. I'm just going to have to park them behind LoS blocking terrain.

It might be a good idea to change the missile turret from a missile pod to a SMS then so you can hide out of LOS and still fire potshots at the enemy.
