2k Tournament List

Post#1 » Dec 24 2017 05:31

Hi All,

Newbie here but I recently came 4th in a tournament with the following list (3pts off 1st and missed out on 3rd by kill points) so I thought I'd share it. I personally don't like spam lists but all round lists which have a bit of everything but I tend to like mobile in your face lists. C & C's welcome as this is one list I think I'll be looking to work with for the foreseeable future until the codex drops.

I beat Khorne SM, Tzeentch Demons, Harlequins and Necrons with narrowly losing to ynaari due to a minor last turn mistake when I was cruising to a win!

Longstrike (General) 2 x SMS, Railgun, 2 x Seeker Missile 225 Feel no pain warlord trait

Well done on the tournament success! Did you feel that the large infantry squads were viable? Or would you have preferred multiple smaller units? The 10-model infantry squads and lack of an Ethereal makes me feel a little wary, but how did it work out?

Also, Piranha Seeker Missile spam has been intriguing me recently. Was it effective?

Thanks!

I haven't been playing 8th for long but I find the bigger units makes it easier for me to focus fire on a few units instead of over complicating things. Plus 2 squads instead of 4 meant I had the +1 on my roll for first turn twice which helped!

What can I say about piranhas....love them, always have and even more so now! A relatively cheap way of getting a lot of seekers in your army (I tend to fire all of them in my army off at a big target or two first turn) 28 S5 shots per turn with my loadout with a 16 inch movement makes them very versatile. Plus now with T5 and 6 wounds they hang around for a lot longer and can soak up a lot of damage.

Another thing I've found useful is when they die the drones can still disembark :D
