40k Day, May 2010 - Prepare to face the Green Horde!


Moros here, I've been getting ready for the upcoming 40k day on May 8th. I am very excited as we have a group of new people coming. I will be running a tutorial match vs The Prophet's Ork horde.

I've really been looking forward to playing against the orks. I've never faced them before, but I do know what they are capable of. I am preparing myself to face off against a good number of boyz with some hard elite units mixed in. This will present a problem for me in that close combat is not my specialty with my Thousand sons squads. We will see how they fare against the less expensive orks. Hopefully my toughness can shine and my warriors will hold the line.

I am bringing a lot of vehicles the fight, they should fare pretty well against the green tide. The idea is for my Predators to give cover to my Vindicator as it rips apart large sections of the advancing orks with its massive demolisher cannon. As always, I'll be taking my command squad with Ahriman and Moros with the Sehkmet Terminators. They are always a hard nut to crack and can deliver some massive firepower. I will be counting on them to pass their psychic tests!

Here is the List I will be running.

HQ- (440)
Ahriman - (250)
Sorcerer - (190)
+Mark of Tzeentch
+Warptime
+Wind of Chaos
+Melta Bombs

Elites- (420)
3 Terminators - (420)
+3x Champions
+3x Powerfists
+3x Combi-Weapons (Meltas)
+Icon of Tzeentch
+Land Raider

Troops- (778)
7x Thousand Sons - (271)
+Aspiring Sorcerer
+Doombolt
+Melta Bombs
+Rhino

7x Thousand Sons - (271)
+Aspiring Sorcerer
+Doombolt
+Melta Bombs
+Rhino

7x Thousand Sons - (236)
+Aspiring Sorcerer
+Doombolt
+Melta Bombs

Heavy Support- (355)
Predator - (115)
+Sponson Heavy Bolters
+Havoc Launcher

Predator - (115)
+Sponson Heavy Bolters
+Havoc Launcher

Vindicator - (125)

Total - (1993)

As I mentioned, our game will be a tutorial game that will show the new guests to the club how 40k works. I know that after they see how a game works they will be totally psyched to get into 40k. Should be a great day I am really looking forward to it! Hope to see you there!

  1. I do like the list Moros. I'm a little sad not to see the 3 defilers we had discussed. I think I just wanted to see 3 battle cannons in action. A few comments...

    1. I would try to squeeze a few more points out of somewhere to get daemon possession on your land raider.
    2. do you really need both HQs in the LR with the termies?
    3. Do you really need 2 basically identical HQs? what about getting rid of ahriman and taking a prince?

    I think taking doombolt on your sorcs is a better choice than warptime. ranged AV and melee AV on them in a definite plus. Are you planning to use the unrhinoed tsons to escort your vindi? that is what I would suggest, added defense and cover saves for the high priority target.

    just watch out for thraka + nobz. nasty combo. he will have little else to take down your LR. dont' forget to tank shock either, you have 3 candidates for that. use it to knock the hoard off the objectives!
