Themed Flying





So with flyers being the new and in thing for 40k, I thought I would take a couple of posts to look at how you can theme your list around them.


In this case I have decided to go for what I believe will be an entirely reserved list, with several scoring units, and lots of flyers!


This is an off the cuff idea, and I don't actually have the flyers to do it yet (although that will happen me thinks).


Necron Overlord - Mindshackle Scarabs, Warscythe


Royal Court -
Harbinger of Destruction - Eldritch Lance & Solar Pulse


Immortals x 8, Gauss Blaster, Night Scythe


Immortals x 8, Gauss Blaster, Night Scythe


Warriors x 5, Night Scythe


Warriors x 5, Night Scythe


Doom Scythe


Doom Scythe


Doom Scythe


So an entirely reserved army list, with lots of Flyers. 


The Anti Horde of this force comes down to the lots and lots of Twin Linked Tesla Destructors along side their Arc special rule should give me a decent shout at destroying Infantry.


The Doom Scythes themselves will be on Anti Tank Duties with their Death Ray, and in the turn I deploy all my Gauss Weaponary I should hopefully be able to deal with a Tank or two as well. 


The Nature of Tesla on the Flyers, means that even if I need to take evasive maneuvers requiring 6's to hit with a re-roll that grant me three hits is not such a bad thing against, at works AV12 flyers. 


For the turn I need to drop my troops off I even have a Solar Pulse, just to help them all survive, but hopefully by that point it will be game set n match anyway. 


All in All I think this could be a very fun list to play, and for those of you curious it comes to a grand total of 1500 points.... not too shabby!!


Admittedly not having the rule book in my hands means this is major theory crafting, we also don't know how the FAQ will affect the Necrons so it could all change, but if nothing else some food for thought!

Cry Havoc 2012!



This weekend just gone I had the pleasure of attending one of the larger Warhammer Tournaments in Scotland.

My Hobby in May
