2000p 4 Royal Courts?

If it ain't human, and it ain't from the warp, then it must be Xenos.

2000p 4 Royal Courts?

Postby V3nd3tta » Sat Jul 07, 2012 7:42 pm

I don't know about everyone else, but I had to reread the part of the 6th Ed. Force Organisation Chart that said that at 2000 points or more, we get up to 4 HQ choices. Crypteks, and Royal courts in general, are now very spammable. I was wondering what everyone else thinks of this. Anyone cooking up any lists to take advantage of the new rule?
40k:
Necrons ~7500 Points
(Dark Angels Successor Chapter) ~800 Points

Warmachine:
Cygnar ~70 points

I'm sure once all my friends pick up the 6th edition rules and plan out armies, we'll have a few games. I have thought of a heavy HQ army using 5 HQs (one being Obyron for free) with 4 groups of royal courts and throw my 2 troop choices in Night Scythes.

Only time will tell how powerful it will turn out. Probably similar to the Grey Knights in the Dan and Dave/Lloyd battle report.

I'm not sure about this tactic, lords are too expensive to spam but crypteks seem like they would be fun (especially if you combine 3 with voltic staffs and one with the veil of darkness). but in sixth ed I've seen a dramatic decrease in the use of tanks and almost all Necrons are now very anti-tank if you run into one. Now you want to invest your points into troops because almost every mission is objectives.

royal court spam is awesome but VERY expensive....
i had 2 (5 lords with scythes,weaves, shifters and one with an orb...4 destro teks and a veil tek) in ghost arks
which was about 750pts a court!
but very survivable in CC
they r a scary unit so everyone is like 15 scythe atks? 2+ saves? 3+ invuln? Oh S***
try a few games with them i guarantee u will like the results
