Rampage Heat 2

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

18 Fiends

36 Daemonettes

12 Seekers

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!

  1. While I applaud you for keeping the faith, I have to say that I’d be tempted to mix the gods up a bit if you want to qualify. It’s going to be much harder to qualify in round two because all of the ETC crowd will be there this time around.

    For the Marine list I’d be tempted to drop the Daemon Prince and run a Sorceror with a jump pack and wind of Chaos to go with the Raptors. I’d also change the Lord into Termie armour to go with the Termies. I’d then drop the Termie squad down to 3 models and add more Oblits.

    For the Daemons I’d be definitely mixing the gods. Something along the lines of:
    2 Tzeentch Chariots
    20 Daemonettes
    12 Fiends
    5 Horrors with bolt x3 (1 with Changeling)
    Tzeentch Prince x2
    Crusher unit (I shall now go flagellate myself upon her alter to cleanse myself of this blasphemy)
    If there are points spare I’d spend them on Screamers.

    Or go Fateweaver, Keeper of Secrets, 2 units of Crushers, 6 Fiends, and the rest on Plague Bearers.

    Just some thoughts to help you WAAC it up a level or two 😉

  2. Cheers for the reply mate, the Daemon lists that you have suggested mean buying and or borrowing loads of stuff which I don’t have the time for really. So marines it is, with the changes that you have suggested I get 2 more oblits into the list so 2 units of 2 and a single. Not sure about the effectiveness of a lord with 3 guys though, what weapon load out were you thinking of as I can’t afford a daemon weapon and get the oblits in so just a combi wepon and claw? If so maybe leaving him out altogether and taking another 3 man termie squad might be of more use in my opinion.

  3. How about this list Steve, stolen from a well known ETC site :-0

    Leaves you 30pts to play with.

  4. That just sucks the fun out of games….. and I’m not buying another 8 rhinos. Tweaked the list and got the lord with a daemon weapon in [I forgot it is only 25 points when wearing terminator armour not 40 as normal]. So the list is good to go for a trial run against Pete and his new army of doom!

  5. Very nice! Have you also seen on ebay the Ronin Minatures Fulgrim model? Very rare these days after GW desytoyed the company for IP infringement and they stopped the whole range of Primarchs. Shame GW didn’t just employ the guys who did the models and produce some beautiful models themselves. I will bid on this one as they come up for grabs so infrequently.
