So with the Highlander Abroad and the Caledonian coming up , I have been trying out a lot of combinations. In my heart I want an assault army build that is competitive which is proving to be an issue.
So the first build of Raptors, bikes, spawn, mauler and the required troops lasted a whole 3 turns against Seb’s orks before being wiped out.
The next list of terminators, oblits, mutilators, helldrake and troops did the same to Matt’s Tau but in 4 turns and whilst effective relied on deep strike and Matt failing to turn up so hardly a solid strategy.
So I have a safe bet of 3 troop choices, Vorlath, pred, vindicator, hellbrute, drake and aegis which is solid and balanced but is to be honest dull. I miss my 2 noise marine units to be honest as I rely on them so much but a full sonic unit unless combined with a psyker are not worth taking and a 2nd HQ choice is too expensive at 1500 points in my opinion.
So I am back to decisions, decisions, go for a balanced list or keep trying for an assault army in 6th against all the odds?
