What would you do with 1000pts?

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

Damn fluffly list for IW in 1k I like it a lot.

Something like this, I guess, with the option to swap the Havocs with Tyrants.

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.

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.
