The Ribble Rumble is fast approaching. A 1650pts hardcore tournament that is one of the best social events in the UK.
Neil, Michael, Rob and myself will be attending, so the Cold Steel Mercs will be out in force.
I still haven’t finalised a list yet, but I’m definitely using my Castigators.
I played Rob last week with the list I took to Conflict 2013 minus the Aegis Defence Line and he kicked me all over the table. I’ve come to the conclusion that, in it’s current state, my army needs the ADL to have any chance of pulling off a victory.
So N’kari, My Keeper of secrets, is taking the weekend off and I’m putting the ADL back in. That gives me 152pts to play with and from that I need a Herald to lead the Daemonettes. I’m going to try out a Herald with Beguilement for 75pts and add another 3 bikers to my current squad of 5 and see how they fair. So my latest list will look like this:
Lord, MoS, Steed, Lightning Claw, Burning Brand and Sigil of Corruption.
10 Noise Marines, 2 Blastmasters, 7 Sonic Blasters & Icon of Excess.
10 CSM, MoS, 2 Melta, aspiring champion with lightning claw & combi melta.
8 Bikers, 2 Melta, aspiring champion with lightning claw.
Predator, Autocannon & Lascannons.
Vindicator, dozerblade & combi-bolter.
Herald with Beguilement.
18 Daemonettes, Alluress.
Aegis Defence Line, Quad Gun.
It’s far from optimised, but I’m hoping it will give me and my opponents some interesting games. My first game will be against Geoff Hamilton and I know he’ll be using a couple of Heldrakes, so I’ll be up against it right from the off as my army will struggle to deal with them and his Nurgle Obliterators. Fortunately he isn’t using Nurgle Spawn so that’s something ;-). One thing is for certain, my first game will be a good laugh. We’re both using mono god armies and Geoff is a top bloke to play against so it’s a win win for the first game :-).
So what is everybody else taking and what are you hoping for?
Me? I’ll be happy with two wins, lots of beer and many tales of twisted pleasure!
