Best of 40k 2009: The Army Lists

Today we look at Blood of Kittens picks for best army lists of the year. These are armies that actually won something and weren’t just random net lists totally based on some parallel mathhammer universe. Big Waagh Best Overall Brian Crew Why settle for one Alpha strike when you can have two? This two prong assault is centered not only on the command squad assaulting at I5 and S5  (both re-rolling hits and wounds). If that was not enough you have outflanking Assault Termies to deal with.
