I like the list and very nice paint job on those Imperial Fists, that's a tough one to pull off for most. I like the idea of the scouts calling for reinforcements, especially if the Storm squads have a homer so they can get in position quickly and let termies come in exactly where they want.

Now only if you could squeeze in Tigurius to get the termies in from reserve early, but he'd probably kill your comp score.

I have said it before. I like this list, and I have had success with it using Shrike instead of Lysander. However, the biggest problem with it is that it is unreliable.

Good luck!

Dude, was that Prince?

Dan,
No, black velveteen by lenny kravitz. Good unpopular song. Going to Rochester, I wanna give you a running fot best painted, if I get it done.

Looks good Matt, What is the Bronze/black model and what does it represent towards your theme? Kind of odd just hanging out there.

Assuming that Army Theme and fluff reasoning behind list element choices are good enough to garner a good comp score is a mistake.

The list is packed with redundancy in the slots choosen. There are Army slots not used. 2 Named characters as well. Sure you have some gear differences but as far as your Slot composition? There all the same from the next.

Sad to say i wouldnt be suprised to see you get a bad score. I agree its a soft list and a wonderfully painted army. However that still doesnt equate a good comp score.

Damn phone, I had a long response typed out, forget it. To much going in. In short I deserve good comp because blah blah blah, 5 troop choices, blah blah.

I have run similar lists and I am running a variant at my local rogue trader on the 13th using Shrike instead. The list is a glass hammer and you can argue is representative of elements of StrikeForce Gauntlet from the Novel Sons of Dorn. Which focus on a groups of scouts that were used as bait for Lysander and elements of the 1st and 5th companies to drop in and eat. Comp wise you dont' have TH/SS Termies, you don't have 30-40boys in power armor. The storms are nastier then you are giving them credit but I run storms alot. I'd say you deserve a good comp score. Even with Taking Lysander and Telion 20 termies.

I was THIS close to meeting you at the Salvation last monday, of all days to leave my army at home, oh well. If you go to Brothers Grim I should be there.

The bronze black model is Rogal Dorn, I like it alot. Did you build it yourself or did you buy it somewhere.

Other than that, get those guys painted. It looks like an awesome list and I cant wait to see it in action.

Still cant belive the comp is so crazy for these events. You did a good job for the comp though, just hope the judges like terminators.

The Rogal dorn model is by lil wil over @ theunholyharbinger.blogspot.com. believe it or not this is the third time I've tried to post this Damn it!
@grimnar
look forward to meeting you, but I font think I will get there in time on Friday for open gaming, don't know since its the first time going to Rochester

Grimnar Angband said...

It's Ok, I'll be there only for the tournament so at least I can meet you in person.

I've met a number of guys from Battle for Salvation includng Brother Captain James and Bishop and they all said that you are the guy to meet. I've been inspired by your painting for some while now and look forward to maybe meeting you there, if not there than one monday or such.

I only live an hour and a half away from White Planes and I grew up there so I'll show up sooner or later.

Wow dude, thanks for the compliment. See you there.
