Supernova

Okay, Claws and Fists (if that is your real name), shouted the internet, if you don't think the winning list from the Nova Open is any good, what would you have taken? Well, okay, no-one said that at all but I'm going to talk about what I'd have taken anyway since everyone else on t'internet is blogging about Nova and I feel left out...

First off a couple of caveats; I'm going to pretend that I've not just heard about all of the large LOS blocking terrain that was at Nova and I'll build a list that I would have taken rather than one to take advantage. Secondly, since I haven't played 2000 points before (well, I have but that was 2nd Edition) I'm building a list in a bit of a vacuum with no real playtesting. So, while this list will be pretty points efficient and look good on paper, there's no way I could win a tournament such as Nova without a good couple of months playtesting.

Anyway, onto the list:

HQ

Rune Priest, Chooser of the Slain, Living Lightning, Murderous Hurricane

Rune Priest, Chooser of the Slain, Living Lightning, Jaws of the World Wolf

Elites

Dreadnought, Twin-Linked Autocannon, Twin-Linked Autocannon

Lone Wolf, Terminator Armour, Thunder Hammer, Storm Shield

6 Wolf Scouts, Meltagun

Troops

5 Grey Hunters, Plasma Gun, Rhino, Hunter Killer Missile

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

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

Fast Attack

2 Land Speeders, Multimelta, Heavy Flamer

2 Land Speeders, Mulitmelta, Heavy Flamer

Heavy Support

6 Long Fangs, 4 Rocket Launchers, Lascannon

6 Long Fangs, 4 Rocket Launchers, Lascannon

The Rune Priests go in the Rhinos by the way. Yes, it's very spammy (erm, full of redundancy I mean) but it's incredibly points effcient. Do you really need 6 Troops? Possibly not and I would probably have liked to have taken a couple of Thunderwolves but since I've never used them I'm still not sure how I'd run them.
