1000pts build - time challenge

Post#1 » Jul 21 2017 04:59

So, as usual this is my collection:

1x Commander
1x Fireblade

2x Riptide
1x Ghostkeel
2x Broadside
3x Crisis
12x Stealth

1x Hammerhead/Skyray
1x Devilfish
2x Piranha
1x Sunshark

24x Fire warriors +1 Support turret
10x Breachers
12x Pathfinders

40x Drones (circa)


aaaand I desperately need some help :eek:

I'll need to deploy my forces within 7h, starting from now, and I need two different 1000 points builds: One against SM and one against Dark Eldars. The only chatch is I'll be driving my car. So, I have no way to work on them... :?
Your help is much appreciated

Well......

It's funky. I'll make another.

OHHHH! Also, ignore the detachment structure, you'll have to fiddle it about to make the you's fit sorry- I didn't sort that bit of as I butchered an existing list I have that previously fitted.

The idea is drones in Devilfish with Fireblade. Deep strike Flanmers with homing becom.

Stealth suit and commander focus- both great units. You'll need to proxy crisis for commander!

Good luck! Since there's not much time, try this list out. I'd recommend a take-all-comers list that you can use against any enemy.

-

HQ - Cadre Fireblade w/ Markerlight (42)
HQ - Commander w/ 4x Fusion Blasters; 2x Shield Drones (176)
HQ - Longstrike w/ Railgun, 2x Burst Cannons, 2x Seeker Missiles (205)
Troops - 8x Fire Warriors (64)
Troops - 8x Fire Warriors (64)
Troops - 8x Fire Warriors (64)
Elites - Ghostkeel w/ Cyclic Ion Raker, 2x Burst Cannons, Target Lock, ATS; 2x Stealth Drones (179)
Elites - 3x Stealthsuits w/ 3x Burst Cannons (90)
Fast Attack - 8x Pathfinders w/ 3x Rail Rifles (121)

Total: 1005 - Command Points: 6 (1 Battalion Detachment)

Here's a variant that focuses on battlesuits too:

HQ - Commander w/ 4x Fusion Blasters; 2x Shield Drones (176)
HQ - Longstrike w/ Railgun, 2x SMS, 2x Seeker Missiles (225)
Elites - Ghostkeel w/ Cyclic Ion Raker, 2x Burst Cannons, Target Lock, ATS; 2x Stealth Drones (179)
Elites - 5x Stealthsuits w/ 5x Burst Cannons (150)
Elites - 5x Stealthsuits w/ 5x Burst Cannons (150)
Fast Attack - 8x Pathfinders w/ 3x Rail Rifles (121)

Total: 1001 - Command Points: 4 (1 Vanguard Detachment)

Good luck with whatever you end up going with!
