PostSubject: 750pts for my first tournament    Sat Jan 28 2017, 18:05

I know its probably been asked countless times - comments on my first tournament list would be appreciated!

750pts

HQ
Haemonculus 70pts

Elite
Grotesques x 3 Raider (dark lance) 165pts

Troops
5x Kabalites in venom (Splinter cannon) 105pts
5x Kabalites in venom (Splinter cannon) 105pts

Fast
3x reavers (1 blaster) 58pts
3x reavers (1 blaster) 58pts

Scourges - solarite blast pistol 160pts
1x haywire blaster
3x blaster

This leaves me 29pts


I feel likes 750pts is a bit awkward to fit my usual play style into, I like bringing the talos, but this list gives me a mix of the better available options. I know people will suggest Lhameans, but i dont really have the time to get one ordered and painted in time

I'd change your HQ to a Succubus w/ Archite Glaive and haywire grenades to keep your grots from getting tied up by elite infantry, drop the dark lance from the raider(since it will have to snap fire when you jink anyhow, and can't fire when you move 30" across the table flat out turn 1 to deliver your grots+ Succubus combo), give each unit of Kabalites a blaster, swap the reaver's blasters for cluster caltrops instead, and make all scourges have haywire blasters. Would make the list look like this:

HQ:
Succubus w/ Archite Glaive & Haywire Grenades 100
ELITE:
1x 3 Grotesques in a raider 160
TROOPS:
2x 5 Kabalites w/Blaster in a dual cannon venom 240
FAST:
2x 3 Reavers w/Cluster Caltrops 126
1x 5 Scourges w/4 Haywire blasters 120
TOTAL: 746

I normally don't recommend blasters on kabalites, but in small points games like this, making them versatile instead of specialized can be a benefit. In 1500+ games, I'd tend to specialize units more. I hope that helps! Good luck, whatever you decide to do! Wink

Thanks a lot. I like the idea of all haywire blasters but it concerns me of their usability against a lack of vehicles. I will definitely try and get some blasters into the kabalites though

I completely agree with Betray the World's opinions on this one. If your Scourges don't have any vehicular targets left they can screen more valuable units or capture empty objectives. And that's assuming they can't at least try to inflict damage with a few Strength 4 ap 4 shots.
