About a year now....

About a year ago I lost the most important man in my life. He was the rock I could go to for support, the best advice and a great friend. I miss you dad. Rest in peace, we are doing better every day thanks to you and a lifetime of hard work on our behalf.

Adepticon buildout list

Well, with my PC in the shop I'm doing a ton more reading and theory hammer for 40k, so I thought I would share a full 2k list for the Star Phantoms I am building for Adepticon in April.

So I started with the idea of an alpha strike drop pod list. 

Ordo Malleus Inquisitor in terminator armor with 3 skulls and psycannon. And tome of Vethric
Librarian psyker 2
Librarian terminator psyker 2
5 assault terminators, 2 hammers
8 sternguard veterans, 2 combi flamers, combi plasma, combi grav, fist, pod
4x 10 man tactical, flamer, combi flamer, missile, pod
3 death storm pods
Hyperios defense battery
2 land speeder storms
Landspeeder w/multimelta

This lands squarely on 2000 points. Remember this is designed to split the tacticals and drop the flamers in the pod with the missiles on foot to start. The terminator librarian and inquisitor drop with the assault termies. Landspeeders flank one or both sides of the table and servo skills stop infiltrators and outflankers for two turns. By then the cavalry has arrived to threaten the main enemy force. Combine the star phantoms trick of twin linking all shooting for one turn with the inquisitor's book and the alpha can be quite nasty I think. Thoughts?

Daemon Prince Be'Lakor WOW

Ok so I saw GW released digital rules for this bad boy again today. I own the model and I have been using it as a generic prince for years. His rules were last outdated when 5th edition released. The new rules are just over the top, in an over the top, Holy Crap, O no They Didnt!, SH*******T!!! kinda way.

per lexicanum

For 120pts MORE than a landraider you get:

always shrouded
eternal warrior
mastery 3 psyker that knows all of the Telepathy discipline....always
fearless and makes any fear checks be taken a -1
whenever anyone on the table breaks from combat he gets d3 warpcharge points the next phase....
his sword make him s7, has fleshbane and armorbane, and is ap2...O and its mastercrafted....

Now for all this shenanigans I'm still not sold on the cost....that is a LOT of points in a T5 monster. Now he does fly and can buff the crap out of his units with an extra d3 warp charge....(he could have 6 a turn here people!), but really he is a combat monster with a ws9 s7 ap2 in combat, so im not sold on his split personality yet, given his cost. Thoughts?
