PostSubject: My 1850 Go to List, C&C please!   Sat Jul 23 2016, 10:02

Hey everyone,

So Im still relatively new to the whole 40k scene (<1 year), and I was looking to come up with a "Go to" list which I will consistently play for the next couple months. The reasoning behind this is that as I see it, by sticking to one list and learning how to play various strategies/go up against different opponents with it, Ill become a better player. Before, I found myself always switching lists, which meant that Id need to learn the new units/synergy, as opposed to developing sound tactics.

Anyways, here she is!

DE CAD 1

2xMedusae IN Venom w/ S.C

1. 5x Kabs w/ Blaster IN Venom w/ S.C
2. 5x Kabs w/ Blaster IN Venom w/ S.C
3. 5x Kabs w/ Blaster IN Venom w/ S.C

1. 3x Reavers w/ C.C and Heat Lance
2. 3x Reavers w/ C.C and Heat Lance
3. 3x Reavers w/ C.C and Heat Lance

1. Ravager w/ 3x D.L
2. Ravager w/ 3x D.L
3. Ravager w/ 3x D.L

DE CAD 2

2x Medusae IN Venom w/ S.C

1. 4x Mandrakes
2. 4x Mandrakes

1. 5x Kabs w/ Blaster IN Venom w/ S.C
2. 5x Kabs w/ Blaster w/Sybarite- w/ HWG IN Venom w/ S.C

1. 5x Scourge w/ 4x HWB
2. 5x Scourge w/ 4x HWB
3. 3x Reavers w/ C.C w/ Heat Lance

Total: 1850

The idea here is redundancy, multi targeting (everything can threaten anything), and expend-ability. Then we get to the mandrakes, they are for backfield objective grabbing and harassing, tbh, I had the extra 100 points, so I threw them in. If theyre in cover, they should be getting a 2+ cover save, so if anyone is going to waste their ignore cover weapons to wipe out a 48 point mandrake squad, I see that as a win, considering that they are not hitting any of my other units.

Ive got a couple of alternatives/minor changes in my head, but im curious to get your guys opinions first!

Thanks!

Honestly what are the Medusae doing? They arnt DSing, you tell your opponents you have AP 3 flamers they will just shoot them turns 1-2.

Take a unit of them 1-3 is fine, but I would just spend less points and get a couple Lhameans.

Other than that looks fine.

Hey, thanks for the rely!

Lol, they would indeed be deepstriking 9/10 times. The idea would be to pop open transports the first turn or 2, and then hopefully get the medusa DSing turn 2 or 3 to deal with the footsloggers.

The 1/9 time that I would consider fielding them is going up against a drop pop heavy list: place the medusa away from objectives (preferably near table edge to hope for a mishap), expect them to all die (they are only 115pts each), and light up the now footslogging, out of position drop pod rhines with poison/blasters. Alternatively, if they dont go after the medusa, they have the next turn to fly into position and assault rhine face.

Do you think that would be a viable tactic?

Ok so you are DSing them, I just havent seen much DSing now days without sometype of modifier to a DSing unit Smile Just not used to it is all.

Haha no worries, I probably should have mentioned that they would be DSing :p
