Interesting Tournament on the horizon-
Here's the set-up, its call the Army of "One" Event.
1. You need to fill a maximum and Minimum of One unit in each type of force org slot. Meaning you have to have one and only one HQ, Troop, Elite, Heavy, and Fast Attack. It breaks the rules a bit but makes you think a little more about what to take.
2. You have 1111 points, yes, thats One thousand, one hundred eleven points to spend.
This makes things very interesting in the army building department. I am intending to take Grey Knights but the idea of taking my Eldar did cross my mind.
My first build is something like this-
HQ- Librarian w/ MC hammer and 4 powers (Sanctuary, MoT, Warp Rift & Shrouding) - 180 pts
Troop - 10x termies - all halberds - 495pts
Elite - 5x purifiers (2x psycannon, 2 halb, 1 hammer) -140pts
Heavy - Dread w 2x TL Autocannon w/ psybolts & searchlight 136pts
FA - 5x Interceptor (2x halb, 1 psycannon)
Concept of the build is to combat squat the Temies into a firebase and an assault set. Attach Libby to the Assault set and push them forward with purifiers screening and providing fire power. Dread and firing termies sit on an objective as necessary. Interceptors move to distract and or contest.
List idea #2
HQ - Grand Master w/ Halb, Psycannon, Rad grenades
Troops - 10 PAGK w 7 halb, 2 psycannon, Rhino w/ searchlight (gotta do something w/ that last point)
Elite- 10x Purifiers 4 psycannon, 5 halb
FA - 5x Interceptor (2x halb, 1 incinerator)
Heavy - Dread w 2x TL Autocannon w/ psybolts 135pts
Grand Strategy to make thing scoring or otherwise depending on mission objectives. This list puts 5 more bodies on the table but at the cost of 2+/5+ to 3+/-. It also adds 2 more psycannons and an incinerator for fun.
What to do....maybe a paladin build?
