With the Christmas 2500pt tournament right around the corner and myself not able to participate, I thought I would throw my next tournament list out. This one is a variant on my Ard Boyz list last year without allies. After all this list really doesnt need them.

The list is built to destroy light armor and rain down artillery on gets out. Three hydras statistically will break a rhino a turn. This way you pick out two close together, and then drop an earthshaker barrage into their midst.

Afraid of the enemy getting to close? This list wants them to come in. Lots of plasma and melta from veterans and enough chimeras to meet the enemy with a wall of heavy flamers.

Got a first turn and your enemy not reserving? Reach and touch someone. Vendettas with their scout moves. Throw the demolition team into one of them and get over there. Assault that land raider with 10 melta bombs. Load up the other one with whatever you feel like, plasma or melta.

Creed? Oh yea, we have Creed with tactical genius. Give that banewolf squadron the scout special ability, and move them forward 18" during your scout move. Don't forget to pop smoke when you do so. Creed also has a very nice 24" order range, so if you are going after that monstrous creature or piece of armor with a vet unit out of a vendetta, dont forget to issue the orders.

  1. I've been running a list similar to this for the last 2 months, only a 1850 and 2000pt variants. I'm liking it alot and have had decent results (1st place, middle of the pack, 5th place, and another middle of the pack finish)
