BA 1500: The Fast and the Dead

Post by The Airman » Fri Jan 31, 2014 11:01 pm

Greetings, MWGers. I come from the once deep abyss know as "Off Topic", now known as "No Topics".

Anyways, I have a mighty need to play these overcosted, underpowered guys. Something about dakka Baal predators calls out to me. Without further ado, here is my list:

===
HQ:
Librarian
-Jump pack
-Divination powers?
=125=

Elites:
Sanquinary Priest
-Jump pack
=75=

Troops:
Assault Squad (ten models)
-Two flamers
-Hand flamer in exchange for bolt pistol on Sergeant
-Power weapon
-Melta bombs
=230=

Assault Squad (ten models)
-Two Meltas
-Power weapon
-Melta bombs
=240=

Fast Attack:
Baal Predator
-Heavy bolter sponsons
=145=

Baal Predator
-Heavy bolter sponsons
=145=

Baal Predator
-Heavy bolter sponsons
=145=

Heavy Support:
Devastator Squad (five models)
-Three missile launchers
-One plasma cannon
=135=

Devastator Squad (five models)
-Three missile launchers
-One plasma cannon
=135=

Predator
-Lascannon sponsons
=135=
-=1500=-

Can Baals outflank? I've read they can but their rules don't call for it.

I pretty much don't know what to expect in 6th edition, only that I'm already at a steep disadvantage from playing the Blood Angels from the get go. From your collective reservoir of knowledge, how do you think my list would perform on a general level? I'm open to changed, unit additions/removals and criticism, so don't be afraid to beat some sense into me. Cheers!

If a unit has scouts or infiltrate, it can opt to be in reserve and come in via outflank

Oh, that's nifty. I'll definitely do that for the scary factor!

Any criticisms or changes, though? I have that feeling that if I field this, I'll get a 25% win rate and will have a bad time.

I like it, you should be able to run rings around most armies with those Baal's

Watch out for Lance and Grenades though

Beat my opponent with a pipe wrench.

But more realistically, I figure my AC/LC Preds can handle them. How hard are they to kill anyway?

I see. How do I roll for Prescience? And what should I do to counter flyers?
