Spam? I call it Redundancy...

So, you may have noticed that there was no Arena of Death this week. That's because I was actually playing a game against Andy rather than at home playing with myself. Erm...

We were playing Seize Ground with 4 Objectives and Dawn of War deployment. I was using the following list:

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

Lone Wolf, Terminator Armour, Chainfist, Storm Shield
Lone Wolf, Terminator Armou, Thunder Hammer, Storm Shield
6 Wolf Scouts, Meltagun, Melta Bombs, Mark of the Wulfen

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

Land Speeder, Multimelta, Heavy Flamer
Land Speeder, Multimelta, Heavy Flamer

6 Long Fangs, 4 Rocket Launchers, Lascannon

Andy had a Warboss on a Bike with a load of Nobz, another Warboss on foot with Snikrot, a big unit of Boyz on foot, 2 20 man Boyz squads in Waggons and a squad of Lootas.

It was absolute carnage. The game was over by the end of turn 5 as all Andy had left were 3 broken Boyz mobs. Things weren't much better on my side of the board as I only had one scoring unit remaining. I was really happy with the way this list performed and also with the way I actually played it. Normally, I never get my Grey Hunters out of their transports but here they jumped out on turn one to rapid fire at the bikes. I had been hoping to wipe them out but leaving just the Warboss and two Nobz all on a single wound was a great start to the battle.

After that I didn't really get to do much shooting as all of Andy's Orks were in combat. I managed to get the charge against the big Boyz mob which was golden as it prevented them getting Furious Charge. I have to admit that my Lone Wolves were a bit disappointing as they always seemed to be arriving at combats just as they were ending.

After a disappointing time at Caledonian the other weekend, I feel like I played a really good game this week. I think that the only thing Andy probably should have done was to turbo boost his bikes on turn 1 but as he said at the time he was worried about putting them in charge range of the Lone Wolves.

I'm still tempted to take a Drop Pod list to the next Open War as the missions seem to favour that kind of army but after the showing of the Razorwolf list here, I might change my mind.

  1. I think that is a very good list but I would prefer some more Long Ranged firepower. I don't want to say get more Long Fangs but...you I might just have to say it! Poor Andy by the way...Space Wolves is a very bad matchup for the Orkzes. And from which band is that post title from? :P

  2. Looks like a very competitive list, Gav. My only worry would be you might give away a lot of kill points in Annihilation games from lots of small units & transports?

    But the proof of the pudding will be in the eating (mmmm, pudding!). Will you be using this list in our campaign games?
