2000 Point CADs only list, Shadowsun Bomb

Post#1 » Apr 05 2017 07:26

First time running a Shadowsun bomb and was hoping for some input on my list. The idea being to use the tetras as beacons to avoid scattering, thus the kit to make jinking a bit easier. This is for a local league so it doesn't need to be ITC competitive.

Solid list, can't really fault the overall design but a few (minor) niggles:
Are the riptides one or two units? They should really be seperate.
If you can I would recommend giving 2 of the plasma suits target locks as 4 plasma rifles + 1 fusion blaster will kill most things and it will enable you to threaten more units.
Same for the broadsides. IMO at least one and possibly two should have target locks.
I get the logic behind the disruption pods but you're paying 30 points for them, and at that stage you'dbe better off with another tetra (more survivability + more damage output + a wider homing beacon range)
(Obviouly this doesn't apply if you don't have/ can't get access to a third tetra)
