Its About Time

After playing a few games with the current incarnation of my list I have come to the conclusion that I just don't get the same pleasure from playing a multi-wing list, that I get from playing my pure Deathwing list. I guess I'm a purist when it comes to these things (either all my eggs in one basket or none at all) and there is something about winning a game knowing I am behind the 8-ball from the start that keeps me playing this list and army. This list seems to suprise people if thy are not ready for it. If you can play a list using the models you love and still win games, by all means do it.

The one thing I love as much as Terminators and Land Raiders, are dreadnoughts. I recently found out that GW is releasing a plastic Venerable Dreadnought kit and it is the only thing I am looking forward to (a new codex would be nice, but I don't see that happening anytime soon).

I may drop one land raider and one squad of terminators in favor of 2 Venerable dreadnoughts with multi-meltas and heavy flamers in drop pods. I do realize that with only two troop choices I am at a major disadvantage and that it only takes one lucky shot to destroy one of my land raiders (especially now, with players starting to switch back to long range fire with lascannon and missile launcher spam), but that is why I play this game, the thrill of the challenge.


  1. As soon as I get the dreadnoughts and drop pods built, battle reports will be soon to follow.

    Now if I can just find the time to do it...

  2. It's definitely a challenge. I run two walking dreads in my Deatwhing and they do suprisingly well.

    When you think of everything in a Deathwing force as "expendable" it gets much easier to see them destroyed.

  3. I know what you mean about purity...although I play the traitors (Chaos), I feel better when I run with only one of the four powers and not pick from some or all.
