1000pts for Mini Tourney, help me with game plan

Post#1 » Aug 24 2017 10:25

My gaming group and I are going to visit a friend up north and play a mini tournament, Sourhammer Open (for anyone familiar with Swedish geography it's in Surahammar, pun intended :P ). We have played a lot of 8th edition Fantasy and some AoS but this will be the first time for us to try our new 8th 40k armies disregarding Kill Team. There's gonna be six of us, armies as follows:
Spoiler!
Death Guard (Dark Imperium box)
Custodes Marines (Talons of the Emperor box)
Astra Militarum (Some infantry, Leman russ, 3 HW teams, sentinel)
Tyranids (Gaunts, gargoyles, g-stealers, warriors, tyrant, swarmlord, mixed grill)
Space Wolves (Mostly normal marines, 5+1 wolves with storm shields and "some guy")


I have to my disposal the Start Collecting and Targeted Reconnaissance Cadre. My original idea is to have the army separated into three elements, but this may be difficult at just 1000pts?:

  • Heavy Fire Support base
    This would basically be the Broadside if it's useful at this pointlevel.
  • Main Line of Fortification
    Fire Warriors bubble-wrapped with the Kroots, possibly an Ethereal for the 2HQ for Batallion, but I really need more FW to make it seem worthwhile.
  • Manta Assault Unit
    My favorite part, Quad-Fusion Commander accompanied by the XV8's.

Current game plan: They will likely think that the Broadside is a high priority target. Use the Broadside as a distraction to cover the real threat, the Mantastrike Assault Unit. This is all just speculation though, might not even manage to put it into practice.

*Disclaimer: I'm on the fence... really like the Ghostkeel as well and I'm really not bummed out if I have to change the tactics at all in favor for the Ghostkeel.

I left some air in the list below to fill with either Ghostkeel or Broadside, possibly an Ethereal for +3 CP. Pointers regarding any and all aspects of the list, equipment and general tactics are greatly appreciated :biggrin:
