Xenith Posted November 20, 2012 Share Posted November 20, 2012 So my local GW is having a league, where you have a 2000pt fixed army, but then a 500pt bench that you can swap out for 500pts of your main army at some point. It doesn't really make perfect sense, but hey. The purpose of this thread is to pull together some thoughts on making a competitive BA army. Normally I wouldn't do such a thing, but with 2000pts fixed through the league, I want the army to be good. My standard 1500pts-ish list is: 125 Librarian, jump pack, power axe (prescience)95 Sanguinary Priest, jump pack, power sword 105 Corbulo 250 10 Assault marines, 2 melta, powerfist, infernus 185 10 tacticals, plasma gun, plasma cannon, 185 10 tacticals, flamer, heavy bolter, power weapon 200 5 Death company, jump packs, power fist 100 2Attack bikes, MM 100 2Attack bikes, MM 130 5 Devs 4 ML 1475 There's an overreliance on tacs, and not much in the way of hammer units. I've been able to shoot most opponents into the ground before mopping up with the rest - Corbulo + 2tac squads is pretty mean. Taking this army to 2000pts is the goal. The 500pt thing to cover my ass is interesting, but I see it as a pointless gimmick that will not see much use, unless they rework the mechanic. I can add any infantry unit from C: BA, A crusader, a few rhinos, or tactical terminators. No Baals, preds, vindis or Ravens to my name, unfortunately. What would work? Upping the librarian to Mephy, for one, to make another hammer unit (+125pts), maybe bulking out the DC? Vanguard and Sanguard are options to consider. Van with a powerfist and few meltabombs and packs for backfield disruption, Sanguard with 5xpp, 2 axes, 3 swords could be interesting. Alternatively, I could get 8xBikers, and stick an attack bike with them, maybe a bike priest also. So: 250 Mephiston95 Sanguinary Priest, jump pack, power sword 105 Corbulo 250 10 Assault marines, 2 melta, powerfist, infernus 185 10 tacticals, plasma gun, plasma cannon, 185 10 tacticals, flamer, heavy bolter, power weapon 305 8 Death company, jump packs, 1xpower fist 150 3Attack bikes, MM 285 8 bikes, attack bike, MM, serge, claw, 2xmeltagun 130 5 Devs 4 ML 1940 Leaving me some room for other stuff, maybe a rhino?
