8th ed. 1500 pts gunline w/ midfield

Post#1 » Jun 13 2017 02:17

I took my 100pp list and tried to make a 1500 point list. The premise is a 2 Strike Team buffed gunline w/ Fireblade, Ethereal, and the pathfinder Pulse Drone. This is then complimented with some mid or back field support to deal with threats and other objectives. I have 3 variants of this list the primary differences being whether it takes a Ghostkeel, a Broadside, or Kroot with more drones. You can get 7 CP out of these lists by running a battalion + outrider/vanguard. I will give the base list then the added units (A), (B), or (C).

I feel like going for Variant (C) is a safer choice for your gun line as it has more screening power, but lacks much to take down big Wound models. Where Variant (A) gets a Ghostkeel downfield and more likely to take out a high priority target. I would consider Variant (B) a more middle ground.
