Splinter Fleet Colossus Marches to War!
Posted by hyv3mynd
So I decided on my final list for the following reasons:
1. It has resilient units
2. It has infiltrators (almost all my lists do nowadays for deployment shenanigans)
3. It has stong CC via horde and deathstar
4. It had shooting diversity including str8, str10, large blast, and flamer
*Disclaimer* This is not what I consider to be a balanced all-comers list. It is tailored to perform in this free-for-all format. It probably wouldn't do very well in a 1 on 1 game.
The list (1250):
Tyrant + scytals x2, old adversary, armored shell, regen, implant attack, toxins, paroxysm, leech
Tyrant Guard x3 + lash whips
Tyranid Prime + boneswords, regen
Hive Guard x2
Tyrannofex + rupture cannon, cluster spines, desiccator swarm
So I was able to get everything to WYSISYG by magnetizing the tyrant. Sorry, the whole thing isn't fully painted or based yet, but I'm working on my 2k competitive models and the deathstar didn't make the cut for this.
I was able to give the tyrant a new paint job incorporating the metallic purple highlighting I used on the genestealers. I call this tyrant loadout the "kingslayer".
So the army deploys in a blob sharing cover form the tfex and deathstar. Genestealers infiltrate to take advantage of any opportunities and string back to cover the deathstar and benefit from preferred enemy. I plow to the middle objective and hope the resilience keeps me alive. Hopefully getting tied up in CC ASAP can save me from some shooting also.
I hope to take pictures and batrep the event. With me luck!
