Other 1000 pt options

So I looked at some other possibilities for 1000 point lists for the Sept 5th Tournament.

Black Templar
HQ: Emperors Champ, AACNMTO 140
HQ: Marshal, Iron Halo, Pair Lightning Claws 135
Troop: 6 Initiates, PF, Melta, 2 Neophytes, Rhino, EA 199
Troop: 6 Initiates, PF, Melta, 2 Neophytes, Rhino, EA 199
Troop: 5 Initiates, Lascannon, Plasma 101
Troop: 5 Initiates, MultiMelta, Plasma 96
Fast: Speeder, MultiMelta 65
Fast: Speeder, MultiMelta 65

So you get some static troops to lay down some fire, decent mobility, anti tank, and a little CC pop. It doesn't look bad, it probably just comes down to hoping you don't play against another beastly list.

HQ: Shas'El, Plamsa, Missile, TA, HWMT 97
Elite: 2x Crisis Plasma, Missile, HWMT 124
Elite: 2x Crisis Plasma, Missile, HWMT 124
Troop: 6x Firewarriors, Devilfish, DP, TA, HWMT, SMS, Flechette, 192
Troop: 12x Kroot, 8x Kroot hounds 132
Heavy: Hammerhead, Railgun, DP, BC, MT 165
Heavy: Hammerhead, Railgun, DP, BC, MT, BSF 168

I'm less happy with this list. The HQ could join up one of the crisis teams but since there is no markerlight support he could just go hopping off on his own. The FWs are mandatory and will basically just make the Warfish a scoring unit. Kroot do what kroot do. Ditto for Hammerheads as my main anti tank and anti horde.

Looking over the list I think my preference right now is still orks, then Templar, then Tau. Since Templar have played the last two tournaments and Tau the 1k trournament just before those. Orks are still looking like the army of choice.

So a day and a half and the water effect is still getting clear, but now I think it may actually clear up entirely in a few more days.


  1. I used that sorta foam before and unless you really smish it or coat it with glue it falls apart. One trick I did was put a thin coat of glue followed by ass to really give it a nice dirt feel to it.

  2. btw: My wife got me some really fine sand that doesnt work too well for my terrain but might work well for your Snow stuff. Let me know if you want to use it or check it out.
