replace reavers with another 3 dark lance ravager. And what purpose do you have with armor of misery in this?

what is the point of the succubus? solo melee???

Swap out for a blaster archon with WWP and throw in with the trueborn for an extra S8 ap2 shot.

and as above...definitely need 1 more DL ravager all those poison shots from the venoms will mean nothing if you can not get the enemy out of their transports.

Ok I actually agree with you both. However I changed it up quite a bit with what you said in mind.

Please check it out again.

Except night shields are probably not the best use of points on the ravagers

I love the armour of misery. I have come to love it and it has saved my ass or made it easy to break opponents at crucial times.

Yea but there was only 45 Points left over and I wasnt really sure what to do with them. Plus nightshield are great if you can plant them in ruins and get a 3+ save or even in woods then you get a 4+ if you jink or not.

I wish I could find tourneys like this. The closest we get down here is Community Comp.

Mind you, I think you'll find Tau and Eldar would still excel with these restrictions, seeing as their units are all so good or have good synergy with one another.

Let us know how you go!

Yes, in My Area, St. Louis Mo. We have at least 2 tournaments a month at different stores. Granted most tourneys we only get 8-10 people and they are the same group but we do have 30ish man tourneys about every 2-3 months. Usually ITC Events.

I will take notes and post up each game afterwards. Win or Lose.

Drop nightshields off the ravagers, upgrade a reaver to an arena champion, make him a warlord, give him an agoniser (or add another jetbike), toss in a special weapon on the other bikes and there you go.

Actually SKULNBONZ, I like that idea. Now I can gain a warlord trait at the very least where before I wouldn't have gotten one.



Thanks.
