So I was talking to someone about the Word of the Sigilite rules pack and we came to an interesting question after looking at the missions mainly the one where you control 2 separate army lists.

 

What would you do with a thematic force of only 1000pts?

 

Generally I play 2k-4k games so smaller games and from what I've seen most people rarely play less than 2k. So if you had 1k to make a thematic force what would you take and why? I'm genuinely interested in people's answers and reasons.

The temptation would be to do pure tanks armoured breakthrough.

Buuuut would probably try and get as much mechanized infantry in as possible.

Id probably go back to my old infantry list. 60-80 tactical marines running across the board at people.

 

It's quite the sight :)

I would take Iron Warriors (maybe I will do so as allies for my Alphas).

For 1000 points, a Siege Breaker, a Breacher Squad, Rapier Quadguns and Iron Havocs.

LEGION DEMI-COMPANY

1x Delegatus with command squad Sgt with melta bomb.
3x Tactical squad 15man
1x heavy squad 5 man (Missile Launchers)


I've always been attracted to bog basic forces for Legions representing those hundreds of basic unit fighting force.

No frills no fuss, no special charcters, no vehicles, no elites.

A nice little Half or Demi Company under a Centurion or Delegatus.

Our meta is that the word meta (also viable)is why we don't play 40k anymore.
Play what you like, come up with something rad. Paint sweet models. Make sick comversions. Steep yourself in the lore. Get lost in the details. Obsess over rivets. Read the books cover to cover. Stare at the color plates, get new ideas. Start another legion. Do it all over again, better.

We did a 2x1000pts list event here a month or so back, where you brought two lists with no overlapping unit choices, and then played them at random. Made for a very varied field, although PotL and similar seemed to be very popular, we also had some rather varied lists. Was tremendous fun, although there were some rather, eerrr, special lists as well.
