2000 point Deathwing




Everyone seems to be posting their 'new and improved' deathwing lists to utilize the new Dark Angels FAQ....

well here's my go at it.... a strong core made up of land raiders and of course the thunder bubble. Librarian for physic hood and support. tried to be fluffy with this list as well (ex. not taking 3x speeders like you are seeing on most of the net lists)

here it is in all of its glory.

plan is.. keep the entire army as a core. crusader pushes one of the fronts. turn 3, hop in the normal raiders and everything moves out. you also have the option to reserve everything (or deploy just the raiders) and DW assault 2x term squads on turn 1. Librarian goes with Belial in the command term squad (librarian with 2+/3++ FNP and shield/flame spells .. yes please)

its simple, but tough as nails. don't forget to use your terms as bubble wrap around your raiders to avoiding those scouting or podding extra pen meltas.

is this how you are running your DW army? is 3 raiders too much? should I use any raiders and just go all deepstriking goodness?

  1. I like it! It does provide a bunch of different options depending on your opponent. For example, if you are playing an opponent that doesn't have DS'ing melta, you can bunker up, force him to come at you, whittle away his armor, then jump out and pound him when he gets close enough to assault.

    Otherwise, if there is something that can get close with melta quickly, then you do need the termie bubble.

    Some folks think a three raider list is playing too heavy, but it fits perfectly with a Deathwing list.

    And you're right - keep those "weaker" units out of your list. Be the hammer!
