Little by Little

Graham had come up with a nice idea for this week - instead of the four of us pairing off for a 1500/1750 point game, we're going to try a couple of 750 point games. There are a couple of restrictions (the one about only one type of vehicle makes my Razorbacks sad).

HQ

Rune Priest, Chooser of the Slain, Living Lightning, Tempest's Wrath

I've taken Tempest's Wrath as a nod to the 1750 point list I'm preparing for Open War.

Troops

5 Grey Hunters, Plasma Gun, Rhino

5 Grey Hunters, Meltagun, Razorback, Lascannon/Twin-Linked Plasma Guns

So, minimum troops. I would have had a second Razorback squad but with the limit on vehicles, I'm not taking a squad on foot - this is 5th edition!

Elites

5 Wolf Scouts, Meltagun

These guys can go Behind Enemy Lines (where the foot knocked off the table size means that being in the wrong place isn't quite so bad) or they can hide in some terrain and try and mug someone.

Fast Attack

Land Speeder, Multimelta, Heavy Flamer

Okay, so no Land Raiders or Monoliths but that doesn't mean no Battlewagons or Leman Russes so we're going to need something to deal with AV14. Plus the Heavy Flamer will be the bane of any Scouts.

Heavy Support

5 Long Fangs, 4 Rocket Launchers

4 Rocket Launcers will hopefully be enough to take out any enemy vehicles especially with spilt fire and Frag Missiles will be invalueable against foot hordes (which there are bound to be some of because of the vehicle restrictions)

Predator, Heavy Bolter Sponsons, Storm Bolter

And then some dakka to round things off.

It's not quite optimised and will probably change before the tournament starts but it feels like the basis of a good list. The only things I'm not sure on are the Pred and the Scouts but we'll see how they go.
