Saturday is the monthly tournament at Millennium Games. I was originally supposed to work, but was able to get the day off after all. so I threw together a list quickly. Here's the format:
1850pts. No special characters or named upgrades. Max 2 dedicated transports per list. No more than 1 av14 vehicle per army. Every unit except troops is 0-1 (no spamming).
I'm not a fan of comp, but a least when it's hard comp, everyone faces the same consequences. Much better than when you can bring anything, but stand to be penalized in points by a judge or player. It still encourages gaming the system, especially by armies with strong troop selections as they are still unrestricted. However, I haven't been getting nearly enough games in so I'm going to go get some games in.
Here's what I came up with:
1850pts - no special characters, no duplicate non-troops
Prime + bs/bs, devourer, regen, ts
Tervigon (HQ) + ag, cat, claws, cluster spines, ts
Hive Guard x3
Genestealers x20 + broodlord/st, toxins
Termagants x15 + devourers
Warriors x8 + deathspitters, strangler
Tfex + cannon, cluster spines, desiccator larvae
So I'm hoping/assuming it will be book missions and deployment, so 8kp is pretty good. The units are all pretty resilient or have a ton of wounds. I have several deployment options in DoW between two different HQ's and four troops. The scoring units are resilient and I can spawn more. Since I won't be facing triple long fangs, vendettas, razorspam, my warriors should live a long life. With a cap on transports and no duplicates, I'm not expecting heavy mech lists, so I bumped up my anti-infantry shooting with up to 48 devourers shots and 21 deathspitter shots per turn. There's also a flamer template and 3 large blasts in there.
If my predictions on lists are close, I should do pretty well. Even if someone manages mech spam with two transports and non-duplicate vehicles, I have hive guard, tyrannofex, 40 rending genestealers, and 2 MC's to flip tanks. I think it will do fairly well, we'll see.
Batreps should be coming this week assuming I can take some decent pictures.
