HH 3k Terror Assault Troop Heavy


Recommended Posts

So i'm returning to the game having not played in years and decided upon night lords as the list. Terror Assault seems fun so i've been throwing together a list.

 

From reading the two new books it looks like the key is combining fear and pinning. My only question now is how do I get Sevatar into combat?

Basic idea here is:

  • Librarian flies with the night raptors and can cause pinning with telepathy
  • Terminators deepstrike in (Sevatar Warlord trait) and use meltas to pop armour or chunky things. Then get stuck in
  • Terror Squads (Volkite) - can infiltrate and start killing troops with Vulkite
  • Terror Squads (Rotor) - can infiltrate and pin
  • Xiphons - vehicle hunters
  • Recon squad - cause pinning, take out leaders
  • Tacticals - hold objectives etc

Looks like fun.

but do you think that the 2 Xiphon from Turn 2 up are enaugh for anti tank? the combi melter could only fire once

This is the question! 

I don’t think Combis are single shot in HH 2.0. Can’t see anything saying they are? But still pawing over the rule book

Spending 105pts on Prey Sight and 220pts on Sev, you've almost got enough to sub in Curze, who'd give everyone Prey Sight as well as other the other valuable perks he provides.

If you want to put the Librarian into the Raptors, you need to give him Bloody Murder (or take Curze) so he doesn't prevent the Raptors from using it.

 

Not convinced by cataphractii at all, being Heavy they can't sweeping advance, so you're losing utility granted by night fighting and widespread Fear breaking opponents from combat.

 

I'd keep some basic sacrificial bodies in the Raptor unit, losing a glaive with every casualty is wasted points.
