So I got a WaaC mentality recently for a tournament and after playing a few games and talking shop with some guys I think this may be the cheesiest deathstar in recent memory.

So it's an

Archon w/shadowfield etc.
Corsair prince w/field etc. And (important) reaper of the outer dark.
Void dreamer w/field (note TO decided that due to FW wording corsair psykers get to pick whatever powers they want off the list)
Eldrad
Cast of players w/ mask of secrets.

So what it has:
3 2++ rerollable characters to tank wounds
Hit and run
Powerful psychic powers (offensive, defensive, mobility)
A -4 leadership bubble
Death is not enough

Between psychic shriek w/ld debuff and eldritch storm it can kill units in the psychic phase.
Death is not enough w/ bubble is likely another dead unit from "shooting" if they are close to any table edge.
With warp tunnel it can be anywhere on the board and still charge.
Veil of tears or invisibility keep it safe through any amount of fire
Reaper of the outer dark "forces" the unit to charge nearby enemies allowing you to shoot one unit and charge another.

So far it has been brutal. Eating turn after turn of fire and losing about a model a game.

Discuss?

Can't have 2++ rerollable. ITC nerfed that to a 2++ then 4++ reroll

Well we don't really use the ITC rules... and I don't really think "a big group houseruled against that"is a viable critique in any regard.

Sorry, you said it was for tournaments. It sounds really good I wasn't arguing that. But it might not be as powerful if you used it in an ITC event is all.

Apologies, for tournament, singular, in which the ITC faq is not in effect.

I intend to use something similar to this in my next major ITC tournament, so I'm going to decline to comment until afterwards. At the Las Vegas Open, I used a deathstar similar to this, sans the corsairs because I didn't have enough time to model them. Used a Seer Council as the core instead.

It worked well. I was in the top 20% at the LVO. If I wouldn't have made 1 crucial mistake, I would have likely been in the top 8. Ironic enough, my mistake was against a DE player. Wink

I really think the seer council is the more competitive choice, but hit and run plus harlie powers plus death is not enough is just so strong. I probably ran 500 points off the board today. Including his warlord and 2 rune priests. It was priceless.

My seer council had hit & run, among other things. Wink

I feel like baharroth is a bit of a tax despite all of the benefits he brings.

Can you target a different squad in the psychic and the Shooting phase?

What does reaper of the outer dark do?

@ silver if you're asking what it is from, the corsair Aethermancy tree which (for the purposes of this tourney at least) you select rather then roll due to the wording.

@cpt you can, it is explicitly stated under psychic shooting attacks I think. Reaper of the outer dark is a prince path that let's you give rage to any corsair units for free and gives your prince rampage but forces you to charge any unit you are within 8" of at the start of the assault phase. Very easy to use the forced charge to your advantage as it specifically allows you to shoot and charge different units.

I wonder if reaper of the outer dark will allow you to charge when coming in from reserve?

There was discussion on that yes. I don't rule it that way
