Hello everyone! I'm brand new to 40k with no models and looking for a model goal with 1500pts. Once there I should have the experience to pick what I want toward 1850.

My friends play DE and Imperial Guard... Not sure on local meta in Austin TX. I'm looking for a more all comers list.

Corsair Fleet Raiding Company: Total-1495pts

Command: Total-125pts
HQ: Prince- Jet Pack, Shadowfield, Void Sabre

Primary Cotorie: Sky Burners: Total-725pts
HQ: 85pts
Baron- Cloud Dancer, Shadowfield, Wild Psyker

Troops: 260pts
5x Reaver Band- Jet Packs, 2 Flamers(3 brace of pistols)
5x Reaver Band- Jet Packs, 2 Flamers(3 brace of pistols)
3x Cloud Dancers- 3x Scatterlasers

Fast Attack: 205pts
1x Corsair Nightwing
1x Hornet- 2x Pulse Lasers

Heavy Support: 175 pts
7x Balestrikes- Jet Packs, 7x Shuriken Cannons

Secondary Cotorie: Titan Breakers: Total- 645pts
HQ: 85pts
Baron- Cloud Dancer, Shadowfield, Wild Psyker

Troops: 330pts
3x Cloud Dancer Band- 3x Dark Lances
3x Cloud Dancer Band- 3x Dark Lances
3x Cloud Dancer Band- 3x Scatterlasers

Fast Attack: 80pts
1x Hornet- 2x Pulse Lasers

Heavy Support: 150pts
5x Balestrikes- 5x Dark Lances

General Idea- I think I'm light on infantry killing but I want to steer away from D templates for my heavy hitters. Prince goes with the shuriken cannon Balestrikes to deepstrike some poor unit. I think I will go with collector of ancient treasures and get mask of secrets. Barons go with respective scatbikes and roll on telekinesis... Using prescience probably. Lance and scatbikes should start on the board depending on terrain... Possibly outflank. Hornets outflank, depending on opponents alpha strike. Lance Balestrikes should start on the board as well... Kinda same boat as bikes. Nightwing jinks and helps deter air superiority. Though my friends don't have imperial knights I kinda assume most people I play at FLGS will.

I'm hoping the shadowfields with help get me past turn one's long range shooting. If they have drop pods this list is toast

I guess it didn't post the rest after my emoji

I would like more reaver bands with fusion to supplement less bikes (rule of cool)... Not sure if it's a good idea. More conversion and painting though

Lastly shout out to Skaredcast, TableTop Tactics, and Winter SEO for having amazing batreps!!!

Thanks for your help!

Welcome. Don't double post like this. make edits to your original post. if you are on the mobile site you may need to go to the Classic version first.

I've tried both approaches: filling and filing the back, and cutting the nubs off the packs and I've found both to work though both require dressing and touch up fill in some spots.

So when I looked over your list at first I thought it had some hugely inefficient weapon platform selections/arrangements and then I realized that you were trying to maximize Titan Breakers bene's. After that I scrubbed many of my points and I was left with just this:

The prince you have designed wants to be in a CC unit and that is not one. I'd recommend putting him in a voidstorm band instead:

5x Voidstorm Band- jet packs, 5xVenom blade, 1xFusion Gun(4x Brace of Pistols) 150

leaving you the 25pts you'll need for your mask. Bonus: Every model is a character so everything can be look out sir'd onto the Prince.

I probably wouldn't call this cheesy since you are wasting a lot of points in going after titan breakers like this. You simply aren't any more survivable then scat bikes, and you have less units because of how point heavy they are.


Good luck and welcome aboard!

Thank you for your input! I like the voidstorm idea. You have given me some pause regarding my survivaility... Maybe I'll scrap Titan breakers for some hate bringers falcons.
