This year, instead of trying to scramble together a team for the Team Tournament at Adepticon, SAMSQUANCH MONSTER and I have decided to both enter the 40k Friendly!

With this comes a different set of challenges, first and foremost, with the advent of 6th edition, I actually have to build my Vendettas (what they have only been new in box for a year and a half...) and some other nice things to round out the 1500 points of my list. That's right... instead of the 1850 we have been playing at we have to scale back down to 1500... In fact with how 6th edition is, its not just a scale back to me. It is a whole rethinking of the list.

With this in mind I thought I would start testing a list that I came up with earlier this week. I don't mind feedback on it from my fellows on the net so here we go!

HQ: Primaris Psyker
Troop: Vet. Squad w/3x Plasma Gun and Chimera
Troop: Vet. Squad w/3x Melta Gun and Chimera
Troop: Vet Squad w/3x Flamer and Chimera
Fast: Vendetta
Fast: Banewolf w/Multi-Melta
Fast: Banewolf w/Multi-Melta
Heavy: Death Strike Missile
Heavy: Leman Russ Exterminator w/side sponson Heavy Bolters and Knight Commander Pask
Heavy: Leman Russ Eradicator 

I am 5 points short of the max with this list as it is... so i can squeeze in something somewhere but I will have to think about it. 

People may wonder about the heavy choices I am making, so let me explain a little. 

1. DSM is a fun thing to take, both in its randomness and the fact it can cause so much destruction. I really enjoy it just for fun more than anything else. It is mainly taken because this is indeed the friendly

2. Leman Russ Eradicator: being a STR 6 AP 4  large blast may seem underwhelming... however the fact that you cannot take cover saves from this makes up for it. This will be effective against Tau, Orks, Dark Eldar, and Imperial Guard. And can still mess up some lighter vehicles while still inflicting a lot of saves on marine type units.

3. Leman Russ Exterminator with SS Heavy Bolters and K.C. Pask: So.... 4 twin linked shots at Str 7 is ok against vehicles... but when i can make them STR 8 its WAY better. Plus the twin linked at BS 4 gives me a much higher chance of hitting (plus the str 8 against flyers can be nice if i do roll a 6, which is not a terrible chance btw) along with 9 str 5 shots (or 6 against vehicles) from the heavy bolters. This thing will mess people up.

So, now its on to testing the list a bit and finish constructing it.... wee!

What do you all think? Scary List or no?

Also, if you readers have any other topic you would like me to cover in a post (I recommend Imperial Guard questions but hell I will give any subject a shot as long as it pertains to wargaming) shoot me an email at

Until next time, burn some heretics, kill some mutants, and do it always.....
