So after a dismal showing at Heat 1 of Rampage i.e being in last place on Saturday night and having to fight back massively to avoid the wooden spoon on Sunday, I decided that for Heat 2 I would actually take a list that I was a] comfortable with, b] I might know how to use and c] I might actually win a game.
So this left a massive choice of ….. looks over his shoulder and realises that it is either Chaos Marines or Daemons. Well at least getting my ass kicked again won’t be so bad with my lady watching over my shoulder.
So something that is flexible or an all or nothing in your face and then rip it off whilst still smiling list?
Marines would be something like
Daemon Prince, wings, wind of chaos just to beat up troops and possibly glance vehicles
Lord with jump pack, daemon weapon and combi melta for a one shot vehicle killer then jump on small units
6 Chosen with melta guns and rhino to outflank and kill tanks, termies etc
6 Termies combi meltas and toys again to kill vehicles and squads
2 ten man chaos marines, 2 meltas in each, champions and rhinos
6 Raptors again with a champion and melta guns
3 oblits [sorry Gary]
Yes fixated this time with killing vehicles after heat 1 and trying to do it with 4 plasma pistols across my whole army meant that I was outflanked and destroyed by drive by shootings but not this time! Obviously everyone will bring infantry lists to heat 2 and my meltas would have better off as flamers but that’s life.
Or either 2 chariots and a Keeper or 4 chariots
Add a few icons, and upgrades and you have no shooting but everything rends for a fearless army that smiles at you whilst carving out your heart. This coupled with no one took Daemons to heat 1 so it could be fun just to field a list that no one rates [for good reason I hear you say] and the tables and scenery did lend themselves to deep striking with good height to hide units behind before moving fleet and assault I think this could be a list that may work.
Anyway your thoughts and advice would be appreciated but at least She Who Thirsts looks happier now!
