First 2000 Point 8th Edition List

Post#1 » Jun 09 2017 06:18

Hey folks, just figuring out a starting point for my 2k, 8th edition list. Thoughts and opinions welcome.

Most of the stuff is fairly self-explanable I think, but the thought with farsight is to drop him and the crisis suits (along with the drones) near each other. The suits and drones will act as a screen for farsight. If they do get charged, the flamers should help with that and farsight can heroic intervention himself in. Stealth suits help with fine tuning exactly where the suits land.

Darkstrider and the breachers go in the fish of course. And I am aware of the fact that mixing septs prevents any of commanders from affecting the rest of the troops with Montka or Kauyon. Just a price i'm willing to pay.

Thoughts, opinions, and suggestions all welcome. Thanks in advance!
