So basically I decided to organize a small tournament/mini campaign.

battle one: 600 pts, no FOC, with the additional rule that each player has to roll for nightfighting for his own turn, every turn. because of an other rule nightvision does not work.

battle two: 300pts killteam, has to be drawn up only from units that exist in the 600 pts list. no vehicles.

battle three: same 600 pts as in battle one, low gravity; all infantry counts as jump infantry, hammer of wrath doesn't work.


Well, since I designed the tournament it is only fair if I don't try to win.. because if I would win people would think the rules were biased, probably.

So my main goal is to be as much of a pain in the ass, as possible. And be incredibly annoying.

So to summarize it: make a list that isn't focused on winning but pure and utter annoyance.

HQ:
Vect on the Dias.  

fair enough, not a great choice to start with. But I believe a A13 fast open topped skimmer can be hard to kill. It is also the only model that will start on the board. Making it easy to maneuver and evade the enemy.

Leaving me with 160 points to spend on a single elite or troop choice + HQs. (FOC doesn't apply)

so some ideas are:

5 x wych
w/ heka, blast pistol
court of archon, one of each.
exactly 160 points.

OR

9 true born:
2 x splinter cannon
4 x shredder
2 x carbine
bringing 158 points

OR

court of archon:
2 medusae
1 sslyth
1 Lhameananeaeanea
5 urghuls
bringing 150 points

OR

3 wracks
court of archon
2 medusae
2 ssyth
1 lhamea
1 Ur ghul

bringing 155 points.


So what would you do? one of these or a completely different set-up?
possible opponents:
-Dark Angels
-Blood Angels
-Legione of the damped
-orks
-orks
-Tau
-IG

Honestly I would play to win and I would want you to also. There's nothing wrong with that as long as everyone knows the rules of engagement ahead of time. I would bring my best and would expect no less from you across the table.

I ended up playing Asdrubael, the dias and 9 wyches +HWG. one of wych with hydra gauntlet, one heka with agoniser.

The campaign was a blast.

CONCLUSION, for the lazy bastards who doesn't care to read it all:
Vect and the dias were epic. No-body expected a flying landraider, so the AT brought to the board was relatively low. A single ship in the army makes it so easy to maneuvre and hide behind cover. There is never the problem that there was already another raider taking up that perfect spot behind cover.

THE FULL STORY, for the man who is bored and really has nothing better to do.

first round versus Dark angels was a flawless victory. Not a big surprise, he didn't really have AT. So it was basically zooming around and sniping down terminators with the dark lances. Vect and the wyches didn't even see combat, apart from some shooting out of the dias.

Round two was a 300 pts killteam match, where those 300 points had to be part of the mainlist, no vehicles. I fielded vect with eternal warrior, the wych with the hydra gauntlett got smash, one more wych with rending, and 2 other naked wyches. A was matched with a blood angels list.
The wyches were horrible in close combat, but did a nice job in distracting him. The wych with hydra gauntlet and smash got flamed to bits with an AP6 flamer >.<. And he didn't really know what a Vect could do, so the brilliant man decided to charge me.

it was a turn later he wiped the wyches without to much effort and soon vect was surrounded by 4 MEQ's. 3 dudes with some strong weapons with no more than the 3+ save. and that one though bastard with his 2+ feel no pain. I just kept challenging his dude, so I was just fighting him. One round he didn;t accept the challenge and Vect immediately slaughtered the other 3. Vect and the last though bastard had an extremely long stand off, waiting for me two fail my 2++, or for him to fail 3 2+ feel no pain rolls. (one due to his re-roll anything rule) In the end the dice favoured me.

The last battle was againt Legion of the damned. 1 predator, auto cannon, heavy bolters on the side. Droppod with dreadnought wielding CC weapon and heavy flamer. and a set of dudes with lots of multi meltas. This rounds special rule was low-gravity, all infantry counted as jump-infantry,

I won the dice roll, made him go first and kindly told him of my 4+ seize initiative. His turn one, was a small movement from his troops, as he forgot to jump. and the drop of his dreadnought.

My first round was blowing up the dread and staying way out of range and LOS of the rest. Turn 2 was nothing special. Turn 3 he reached the Dias and blew it up with melta-bombs. taking 8 wyches with it. Sad The next turn it was time for revenge...

The hekatrix and vect charged the unit. With the hekatrix calling a challenge. He accepted. Vect slaugtered the squad without even trying. As expected the hekatrix didn't achieve anything except die and make sure the dude in terminator armour and power weapon didn't join Vects wound pool.

Two phases later the terminator was killed by Vect and he forfeited.


All in all. The most retarded list scored best in the tournament.
1. yes the environment wasn't very competitive. Most players are fairly new to 6th or 40k
2. how ever it was my first ever 6th edition game, so I can't complain.
3. the players where pooled in such a way that the winners were battling winners, and loser battling losers.
