Practice, Practice, Practice

The prepping for Adepticon will continue this week and to help out my buddy test his list, I am bringing a not so cheesy Necron list.  This means no scarab farm, no fliers, no mindshackle scarabs.  Just some troops, and some rez orbs.  Lets take a look.

The times are a changing...

Last week at the Rogue Trader tourney (which I didn't get to play in ... the life of a ringer) it was announced that the army size will be 2k starting next month.  After taking to our league organizer about it he also thinks that he will be raise the point limit as well. So I thought I would take some time and modify my old 2k nid list and present it to you.  Let's take a look.

Rogue Trader Baby!

This Saturday is another Rogue Trader at Fantasy Books and Games and since my nids are not painted I will have to play one of my other armies.  Since I brought orks last time, and guard the time before, I decided to bring my Necrons.   Here is the list

Overlord- MS scarabs, Semp weave, Res orb, Phase shifter, Warscythe                                
Overlord- MS scarabs, Semp weave, Res orb, Phase shifter, Warscythe                                
Royal court
                Lord- Warscythe, Res orb, Semp weave, Ms scarabs         
                Cryptek- Destru, Gaze                  
                Cryptek- Destru                               

10 Immortals                                     
10 Immortals                                     
15 Warriors                                        

Heavy Support
Annihilation Barge                                                                          
2 spyder- 2 gloom prism                               

Fast Attack
5 Scarabs                                            
6 Scarabs                                            
Heavy destroyer                             

Aegis defense line with quad    

Usually I have some wraiths and ghost arcs but they are not painted so no luck there.  I really don’t like the heavy destroyer since it is an easy killpoint I will put it in reserve hoping that I can kill something befeore it comes in and gives away first blood. The way I play it is that the overlords go with the immortals each with a cryptek and then the lord goes with the big squad of warriors hunkered down behind the defense line.
Another option is to bring the storm lord while droping the destroyer and adding a couple of solar pulses.  In the end I just might do that since I won’t have a single model unit to give first blood.
I could also drop the destroyer and split out the warriors and add a few more to give me more troop…. So many choices so little time…
Let me know what you think.  I will take suggestions up till Sat morning when I have to print out the list and party.

WIP... Tuesday?

Monday nights are usually reserved for D&D encounters but we had a couple people cancel on us so I had a free night.  Seeing that I have been pretty distracted lately and have not had time to work on my armies I thought it would be a perfect night to spend some time with them.

Adepticon nom noms take 3

After my ass beating Thursday I decided to make my friendly list a bit more unfriendly.  We’ll take a look at the list first and talk about the changes after.

Post game thoughts

Last night I played Chosen1 from the blog Team Snake Eyes using my AdeptiCon friendly list.  He also used his friendly list. He was playing a themed tzeench list.  while some bad mishaps hurt him in the beginning he pretty much ruled the battlefield.

I would say the shooting was the win for him.  his flamers tore up one squad of genestealers his horrors did most of the rest.  His bolt was very effective taking out my zoies and tyrgon.

The shrikes are useless.  with only 3 they die really quick.  I am going to try a big squad of gargoyles.  This will also leave some more points to work with than if I shift around the genestealers, drop one or both broodlords, can get me another troop choice.  Maybe some termagants or hormagants.

It is something to think about.

Have a good weekend.

questions and comments are always welcome.

Friendly Nom noms take 2...

So, I was looking over my fun list I was not cofortable with 8 ripper swarms.  I have never been a big fan of the little buggers.  I also noticed a lack of synapse so I think I found a ways to keel the snake theme and boost up the synapse: Zonathropes
