3k Event List

Post by SpartanMyth » Thu Mar 23, 2017 9:58 am

Hi all,

I am going to an even in London, UK in May and just wondered how people would view the list I'm taking. It is as follows:

HQ

Siege Breaker cataphractii armour, combi-melta and chainfits

Troops

10 Tactical Marines artificer armour powerfist, additional chainswords, nuncio-vox and vexilla
10 Tactical Marines artificer armour powerfist, additional chainswords, nuncio-vox and vexilla
10 Tactical Marines artificer armour powerfist, additional chainswords, nuncio-vox and vexilla

Elites

2 Quad Mortors shatter shells
2 Quad Mortors phospex canister shot
Contemptor Mortis 2 kheres assault cannons
Apothecarion Detachment 2 Apothecaries with artificer armour and power sword

Heavy Support
10 Iron Havocs augary scanner, 5 lascannons and 5 autocannons
7 Tyrant Siege Terminators 2 chainfists

Perturabo Forgebreaker Rite of War Ironfire

Idea is the apothecaries keep the havocs and home objective tactical squad ticking whilst the two rhino squads push up the board with perturabo, tyrants and siege breaker deep striking up the board aiming for the heart of the enemy all with the artillery raining hell.

Thoughts?

Personally, I feel that your list looks fine. The only thing that is lacking would be AA. You have your Tyrant Siege Termies and the Iron Havocs that can be makeshift AA, but it's not incredibly reliable. You might want to get some missile launchers Iron Havocs to cover that weakness, but other than, it looks fine to me.

I like this RoW. Not only it's extremely fluffy and effective, it also reminds me of the rolling barrage used in the German 1918 Spring Offensive. Maybe I would have taken a Medusa or two, but I feel your list will be effective as is outside my other point.

Oops forgot the 2 medusas from the list whilst typing. Yeah the thought is I've got the dread offering direct AA and back ups if needed.

Aaaaah! They're the Mortis variant! Somehow I didn't realise it. Your list seems pretty solid then.

The Contemptor Mortis is a good AA option, and the Kheres assault cannons are good, except in practice I've noticed one flaw with them. The 24" range is very limiting and can be easily worked around by the enemy. A single Mortis with these weapons is difficult to use effectively to provide full coverage, especially in a 3,000 point game. I suspect an enemy that wants to rely on their flyers can, and will, easily either outmaneuver, or destroy it. You will not be able to hide it effectively and still provide good coverage, all while remaining stationary to gain AA.

I recommend a longer ranged weapon option, or trying to find the points and heavy slot for a Deredeo.

Thanks both will see how it goes as knowing my luck I'll only face air power in either extreme not one plane lol. I am mildly concerned about the primarch surviving over time but we shall see.
