Deiros Posted December 4, 2012 Share Posted December 4, 2012 Hi! I have used the LotD only 2 times in 5th edition only, looking to use it as my new annoying choice to drop on my enemy. Today I saw someone run an interesting "viable" tactic against another Space Marine player with his own DIY chapter so I can't tell what codex really (but will know on my next visit). LotD 5 man Squad worth 225pts Sgt with Power Axe + Plasma pistol Plasma Gun Plasma Cannon They did surprisingly better than I imagined (dice rolls helped a bit), his Sgt. issued a challenges and managed really nicely. That 3++ save allowed him to survive good damage . He challenge his devastators first since he arrived pretty close to them and wiped them out and than he challenged a tactical squad and did some damage with that plasma to other things and he finally died of to combined shots from a predator and another tactical squad. It took the other player considerable effort to get rid of them as the LotD Sgt. turned out to be an amazing duelists because of his save and a way to land with plasma or melta into your opponent backfield. Note that his opponent was bunkered behind his Quad gun creating some sort of "gun line". I was wondering if anyone else has reviewed LotD as a viable choice and used now that duels are a big thing and plasma/melta is still important.
