PostSubject: 2 lists (Eldar)   Sat Jan 30 2016, 02:52

Got two lists i'm working on for the new year in ITC tournament settings. With the new Tau EWO is very commonplace in the gaming community that I tend to play in. Therefore my null deploy/deep striking shenanigans are an unacceptable risk for me to bring to tournaments. Let me know what you think.

List 1 1850/1850

CAD: CWE

1 Farseer Jetbike
1 Farseer Jetbike

2 units of 5 rangers

4 units of 5 scatterbikes with warlocks

2 units of 2 hornets with pulse lasers

1 lynx with sonic lance and dark lance (GO DE!!!)

Fortification:

Void shield generator with 3 shields.




List 2 1850/1850

CAD: CWE

1 Farseer Jetbike
1 Farseer Jetbike

4 units of 4 scatterbikes with warlocks

2 units of 2 hornets with pulse lasers

FORMATION

Riptide wing

2x riptides with Ion Accelerator Twin link smart missile systems and EWO

1x riptide with ion accelerator twin link smart missile systems (no EWO) (5 pts restricting me here. I could take the HBC with ewo.)

Fortification:

Void Shield Generator 3 shields.


So the idea is the first list i am pretty well protected from Alpha strike. I can null deploy and I will run both farseers into Div possibly getting scriers and starting him on the table for reserve shenanigans. Lynx would need to start on table unless i really think they will pop a shield then i will have to wait till T3 to use.

Second list is starting on the table and with EWO i am much more protected from that dreaded DPA.

Testing both tonight against gladius and Daemons. Hopefully I don't lose too badly.

So played both the lists last night.

First game List 1 vs White Scars grav gladius. ITC Mission: Kill points (lol)

So obviously you all would expect a win, and I did win, but he put some damn hurting on that list. I was almost tabled, it went to 7. Poor rolling on my part and he is just an insanely good player. I had won kill points turn one though, and swooped up first blood. Which is what that mission should be renamed "First Blood". Really digging that void shield gen.

6-5


Second game List 2 vs PJ Pant's Flying Circus list. ITC Mission: The scouring
For those who don't know:

1 Bloodthirster (D axe) 2++ most of the time
Belakor
Fateweaver
1 Tz Daemon prince

2 units of pink horrors
1 unit of cultists in bunker
1 helldrake

It's not his current chaos knight list but it has the dthirster instead.


Gotta say first off the riptides felt like a tax. They did exactly what they used to do in the beginning of 6th when I dropped Tau.

That being said I won this second game by the skin of my teeth. At least in this game our dice were having their way with both of us. Our rolls were very polar the entire game. Rolling super hot and super cold, it made for a very interesting game. He made a glaring mistake that cost him the game, and I was able to get lucky and pull out maelstrom by 1. I had gotten big game hunter from killing belakor. lots of craziness went on, it could have gone either way.


So in my opinion the clear winner is List 1. I had to sacrifice shard of anaris and the stone of anthantlksjdfjkalhsdf to fit in those bare bone riptides and I was not a fan. Just like I wasn't a fan when I played Tau in the top of 6th. The second list doesn't play how I like to play and the first list does. I like having options and being able to adapt to situations. Those Rangers and Void shield allow me to null deploy, hornets have acute senses, and I can hit a flank super hard.

List 1 it is. For now...
