Something that caught my eye is the idea for Highlander lists at the Caledonian Uprising tournament this weekend.

What is a Highlander list?

Army list

A Highlander list is a list that doesn’t duplicate an Unit choice.. simply put – There can only be one!

I have relaxed it slightly at Cally ’14 by allowing Troop choices to be duplicated but this still includes dedicated transports (only one of each max).

The duplication will be determined by Unit entries.

For example you may take a Heavy Support Land Raider and a Heavy support Landraider Redeemer but may not take a Dedicated Transport Landraider and a Heavy Support Landraider.

You may take multiple vehicles within a Squadron (if the unit entry allows a squadron).

Special note should be made to those allying with Supplements… duplicates apply across primary and secondary detachments so a Highlander list may not field a Tau Riptide and a Farsight(ed) Riptide!

An example of an accepted Highlander list:

HQ: Space Marine Captain
HQ: Space Marine Librarian
HQ: Command Squad in a Rhino
Elite: Dreadnaught
Elite Ironclad Dreadnaught
Elite: Legion of the Dammed Squad
Troop: Tactical Squad
Troop: Tactical Squad in a Razorback
Troop: Tactical squad in a Drop pod
Heavy: Landraider
Heavy: Landraider Redeemer
Heavy: Thunderfire Cannon

Try and make an 1850 list, added bonuses for those who don't use Eldar or Inquisitors.

HQ - 200

Baron

Haemonculus Ancient w/ liguifier gun, venom blade.

ELITES - 210

5 Incubi incl. Klaivex w/ demi-klaives, in Venom w/ dual-splinter cannon.

TROOPS - 649

14 Hellions

20 Kabalite Warriors w/ 2x dark lances, blaster.

10 Wracks w/ 2x liguifier guns, in Raider.

FAST ATTACK - 402

9 Reavers incl. Arena champion w/ venom blade, 3x blasters.

Beastmaster pack w/ 1: 4x Khymerae, 2&3: 2x Razorwing flocks.

HEAVY SUPPORT - 300

Razorwing Jetfighter w/ splinter cannon.

Voidraven Bomber

FORTIFACTIONS - 85

Aegis Defence line w/ Icarus lascannon.

TOTAL - 1846

Ended up with something like this Very Happy

Long story short, Baron goes w/ Hellions, Haemonculus goes w/ Kabalites and sit behind the ADL, Haemonculus firing the Icarus. Fast units try to steal attention from the scoring units, backed up by wracks and Hellions. Raven takes care of enemy flyers and Razorwing lays death to ground troops.

I have believed for a long time that the game's balance would be very well served by all non-troop choices being (0-1). Not being able to spam an elite, FA or HS slot would mitigate a LOT of the power/cheese issues.

I've actually run something similar to this in recent years, though it did not allow duplicate troops, but allowed for duplicate dedicateds. So making some adjustments to that list..

Baron -- 105
2 x Monc, LG, VB -- 130

4 Incubi, Venom, SC -- 153
8 Mandrakes -- 120

14 Hellions, Suc/Ag -- 281
9 Wracks, 1 LG, Raider -- 160
12 Warriors, 2 DL -- 148

5 Scourges, 2 HB -- 130
9 Reavers, 3 HL -- 254

Razorwing, SC -- 155
Ravager, NS -- 115
Chronos, Vortex -- 100

I think thats about right points wise-- making some adjustments on the fly.

Im accually going to a tournament this weekend that uses highlander comp. Although, you may take up to three of the same troop and transport.

Here's my list:

HQ
Heamonculus Ancient 125pts (warlord)
-Flesh gauntlet
-Liquifiergun
-Archangel of Pain

Succubus 90pts
-Agoniser
-Haywire Grenades


ELITE
4x Grotesques 140pts
Raider 65pts
-Enhanced Aethersails


TROOPS
10x Wracks 135pts
-2x Liquifiergun
-Achothyst
-Venomblade
Raider 65pts
-Enhanced Aethersails
-Disintegrator Cannon

9x Wyches 133
-hydra gauntlets
-Haywire grenades
-Hekatrix
-Venomblad
Raider 65pts
-Enhanced Aethersails

5x Wyches 85pts
-shardnet and impaler
-haywire grenades
-hekatrix
-venomblade
venom 65
-extra splintercannon

5x Wyches 70pts
-shardnet and impaler
-haywire grenades
venom 65
-extra splintercannon

FAST ATTACK
9x Reavers 257pts
-2x Heat Lances
-Cluster Caltrops
-Arena Champion
-Venomblade

5x Scourges 134pts
-2x Heat Lances


HEAVY SUPPORT
Talos Painengine 110pts
-TW Liquifiergun
-Stinger Pod

Chronos Parasite Engine 100pts
-Spirit Vortex

Razorwing Jetfighter 155pts
-Flickerfield

The point of the tournament is to bring fun lists with variation. The TOs will also give the lists an individual compscore depending on how hard/soft the list is, hence the Chronos and no ravager for example. Turboboost everything turn 1 and deepstrike Scourges, just for fun!
