Greetings, warlords.

I made an appointment of battle vs Blood Angels on coming Saturday (2000 pts). I haven't played with him so far, but I've seen his army several times, which is like:

Deepstriking Dante with death companies
Deepstriking sanguinary guards
1 vindicator, 1 dreadnaught, 1-2 land speeders, 1-2 devastator squads
+ termies and marines for the rest of points.

As expecting so many +2/+3 armors, I've selected AP2/AP3 cannons rather than our classic splinter weapons for this battle. However, it's my first time not to use trueborns/warriors at all and thus I really need your advice for the following list:


Kabal of Gum-Un'dar (1999 pts)

Vect, Baron, 5 beastmasters, 15 khymerae, 4 razorwing flocks
- They will charge everything near them, but priority targets are the deepstriking (expensive) units.

Three squad of 6 haywyches in a raider /w enhanced aethersails
- They will fly to enemy vehicles (esp. vindi & dreadn) utilizing aethersails & jink and wreck them (hopefully) in Turn 2. After then, the dissie raiders will attack marines and/or grab objectives.

3 wracks
- They will stay in my backyard objective and, more importantly, provide one FF raider for wraithguards.

5 wraithguards /w D-Scythe in a FF raider
- Fearless T6 infantries in open-topped skimmer will attack everything (except vehicles) with AP2 flamers and a dissie cannon.

2 dissie FF ravagers & 1 dissie FF jetfighter
- Another S5 AP2 bombardment. They may attack land speeders (10/10/10) as well as armored infantries.

1 spiritseer, 5 dark reapers /w exarch
- Concealed in a ruin, they will fire AP3 starswarms and tempest missiles

Is anything stopping you from taking a second combined arms detachment? Because if not, I'd go with haywyches/disintegrator spam to the extreme.

At 2000 points, you could run a triple force org with:

3 Haemonculi w/ liquifier guns
6 units of 5 haywyches in dissy raiders w/aethersails & grisly trophies
9 dissy ravagers
And still have 100 points to spare.

That's 6 haywyches to take out armor, then 99 shots at S5, AP2, and 3 liquifier guns.

Thanks for the advice, BetrayTheWorld. There are no limits for the number of force orgs. However, currently I have only three raiders, three venoms, and twenty wyches. I also felt (from a couple of my previous games) that haywyches in a venom were too fragile to even reach an enemy vehicle. That's why I brought the Eldar ally.

Anyhow, your idea looks very cool! I may add one more haywych unit (that's maximum capacity with my models). Thank you again.

Better than my thought: haywyches, dissies, transports
Worse than my thought: wraithguards
As expected: others

I've nearly finished my battle report. Whoa, it takes more than three hours...! Now I really admire those who have uploaded reports frequently  Shocked
