Going to Winter Invasion 2016 – Ghhaa my army lists!

I hate this. What the heck am I supposed to do. The internet lists are just to good.

Short one…

 

First list I tried.

Desolator lvl 5
2 reavers

3 hunters marauder
3 reapers marauder

2×3 warriors invaders and marauder

2 warriors Intruder

2 slayers  marauder
3 reapers  marauder

4 minders intruder
2 destroyers  intruder

This list didn’t feel just right. I was very weak on focal points.

 

 

Second list.

Oppressors [260 pts]
Desolator: Desolator(Overlord) [260 pts]

Vanguard [294 pts]
Stalkers: 3x Stalker, Harbinger [136 pts]
Reaper Squad: 3x Reaper, Marauder [158 pts]

Vanguard [304 pts]
Hunter Squad: 3x Hunter, Marauder [146 pts]
Reaper Squad: 3x Reaper, Marauder [158 pts]

Warriors [237 pts]
Warrior Horde: 3x Warriors, Marauder, 2x Invader [156 pts]
^ Sharing ^ Warrior Horde: 3x Warriors [81 pts]

Occupation Patrol [340 pts]
Destroyers: 2x Destroyers, Intruder Alpha [140 pts]
Prowlers: 4x Prowler, Intruder Beta [60 pts]
Destroyers: 2x Destroyers, Intruder Alpha [140 pts]

Occupation Patrol [56 pts]
Minders: 4x Minder, Intruder Beta [56 pts]

Worked better. The Destroyers are good but damn that dropship is weak against fast movers. Still I need them I think.

The current list is this;

 

Standard Roster [1495/1500 pts]
Desolator: Desolator(Overlord) [260 pts]

Hunter Squad: 6x Hunter, Despoiler(+Twin Plasma Cannons) [312 pts]
^ Sharing ^ Reaper Squad: 3x Reaper [117 pts]

Warrior Horde: 3x Warriors, Marauder, 2x Invader [156 pts]
^ Sharing ^ Warrior Horde: 3x Warriors [81 pts]

Warrior Horde: 2x Warriors, Intruder Alpha [94 pts]

Minders: 4x Minder, Intruder Beta [56 pts]

Ravagers: 3x Ravager, Harbinger(+Mini Arc Caster, +Vampire) [219 pts]
Destroyers: 2x Destroyers, Intruder Alpha [140 pts]
Prowlers: 4x Prowler, Intruder Beta [60 pts]

Almost 3 dead acticvations. No good second turn surprise enemy infantry with Reapers. But I like the big hunter squad. I like the big warrior squad but I could decrease them to get in another Infantry destroyer squad. But then I only have light dropships…again.

Ghaaa! List awkwardness! What to do? Just give up and take the third list?

  2. I like list 2 and 3. I still prefer the Oppressor to the Desolator.
    Unfortunately I just don’t think that Scourge are competitive enough in the current meta without a Raider (and Screamer)
    How do you deal with Medusa and Freeriders etc?

    • Suicide and birdies, actually. Medusa is harder but the Freeriders are actually surprisingly often killed by my sacrifice of dropships. The template attack with automatic hits. With the freerider’s nerf to E9 they are actually not that good to kill stuff. It is more of a irritating thing. But the Medusa just slice through everything I have. Evade and hope I guess. I think you are right with the Raider. I know that I could take the lighterr dropships for the infantry and save points for another squad of destroyers…. Thinking about it.

      • Creeping Dementia says:

        I agree on using a Screamer Raider. Not just for the damage it does, but when one of those is on the table it completely alters the way your opponent plays the game. Often they push the opponent into being too cautious and conservative, resulting in him ‘playing for a draw’ rather than playing for a big for a big win.

  3. Sorry FM still haven’t played enough with the oppressor.

    Thinking about this now;

    Desolator lvl5
    4 minder+transport

    6 hunters and 3 reapers +transport and gun

    2 warriors+transport and reapers in transport.

    2 warriors+transport

    4 prowlers+transport

    4 prowlers+transport
    Destroyers+transport
    Destroyers+transport

    Light dropships for infantry. I will see if I can get the reapers into the infantry BG – I don’t remember if the command can hold 3 but then I have to use my warriors as dead activations which is a bit of a pain sometimes. But this way I do get the 2 squads of destroyers but I get it even harder on focal points…
