Heads up in advance. Sorry for the bad puns and references
Facing my brother with the new codex in next couple of weeks on the Internet. (We live five hours away from each other and our wives made us give up our plastic friends. Luckily we can live in our past through the Internet without our wives knowing. I better delete that Internet history) So this has been a bloody rivalry since 3rd edition. He normally plays craftworld or harlequins. But will probably try dark angels this time around. I will be bringing an all comer’s list. Loving me some sailboats again.
1st Patrol Obsidian Rose
Master Archon (Warlord)
Huskblade and blast pistol
Relic- Djin Blade
Trait- Hatred Eternal
2 blaster and dark lance
Riding in a Raider w/ Dark Lance and Splinter Racks
2 squads of 5 warriors with each having a blaster
They share a raider w/ dark lance and splinter racks( love that gun boats are back. Reminds me of 3rd or Dawn of War Soulstorm)
Riding in a raider w/ dark lance, grisly trophies, and shock prow
Archon will join them and a special friend that will be showcased later. I bet you can’t guess who that is. One clue, it is not that douchebag Karandras.
A 5 man squad of Mandrakes for their cool disappearing act
Two Ravagers each w/ triple Dark Lances
2nd Patrol Obsidian Rose
Our special friend is Drahzar
2 squads of 5 Warriors with each having blaster
Sharing a Dark Lance raider w/ splinter racks
Two 5 man squad of incubi with each squad getting venom w/ grisly trophies and no cannon upgrade
3rd Patrol Cult of Strife
Relic Dark Lotus Toxins
Trait Precision Bloes
Squad of 10 lovely bloodbrides
Hekatrix armed w/ blast pistol and agoniser
One armed w/ gauntlets and the other shardnet/impales combo
Succubus and bloodbrides riding in a Just got Married dark lance raider
That should come to 2k on the nose
The plan is simple. Soften up the targets with a hail of splinter shard and dark light. Sending the Archon’s loveboat up the middle. Well both flanks advance as well with one side cover by the cult raider and the other by the two incubi venoms.
Not sure on secondaries yet but one will be deploy scramblers.
