PostSubject: 1200 Tournament   Sat Sep 17 2016, 02:11

My local game shop is running a 1200 point tournament, using the most recent FAQ.

I have signed up to play and I need help putting together a 1200 point competitive list. From what I know of the Meta I will be playing against a ton of Marines, some Eldar, AM, and Orks. Basically, I need a "take all comers" list.

I have most models in the DE range, missing only Grots, any Court options, and Forge World money pits. However, I can get those within a few weeks if I need to. The tourney will be on Oct. 30, so that will give me time to build and paint whatever I decide to go with.

Last time I played at the shop was just for fun and pretty much everyone I played had a cheese list with max (insert various OP mechanics) spam for whatever army they played. So I can only imagine what they will bring to a tournament.

Lend me your expertise fellow Archons!

Oh, and the Mission will be a King of the Hill type.

If you know it's a king of the Hill type, Covens will be your best bet. How many Talos/Cronos do you own? And how many are you willing to buy...

I own 1 talos and 1 cronos, mostly for running DA. Do you think I should run CTC or just stock up on them in a CAD? I have enough to buy three or four if I need to.

The rules were adjusted for some reason. So, not only will the game be based on whatever mission is selected but also destroying the enemy.

I have had great luck with my venoms and the dark artisan formation. So this is what I was thinking about running:

DA Formation - 300 pts
Haem - Flesh Gauntlet
Cronos - Spirit Vortex
Talos - Ichor Injector

CAD -
HQ - 85 pts
Archon - agonizer

Troops - 210 pts
Kab Warrior x 5 w/ Venom Dual cannon

Kab Warrior x 5 w/ Venom Dual Cannon

Elite - 145 pts
Incubi x 4 w/ Venom Dual Cannon

Fast Attack - 146
Reaver x 3 w/ heat lance and CC

Reaver x 3 w/ heat lance and CC

Heavy Support - 250
Ravager DL x3

Ravager DL x3

This still leaves me 29 points to play with. Not too sure what I where I want to go with it.

Ever since I actually bought a squad of Incubi, I have hated them. The second list looks a lot better, with more ObSec to screw with other armies. If you could fit in a second Talos to make use of the DA's FNP bubbles, I would try that.

6 man reaver squads will do work, keep that
