So after a lot of late nights and caffeine, Durango Game Space’s copy of Dreadfleet is finished! I’ll be going into the shop tomorrow (to preface the next part) for pictures, so expect full-on action shots then!
Here’s a teaser picture though!
Alrighty, so Durango Game Space is running an interesting game idea tomorrow. Here’s the specs I know:
- 300 Points Max
- 1 HQ and 1 Troops Choice
Easy enough, right? The whole game is objective. The table is going to be packed with terrain. Objective Markers are labeled with $$ amounts off product in the shop. I love this idea! Last one on the board gets $15 off, and objectives have between $0-15 off. You have to grab the objective and carry it off the table.
My decision is, though, is which army to bring?
I have two list ideas: One fairly good, one more for fun (all are WYSIWYG for any weird upgrades)
List 1: IG Raiding Party
- Lord Commissar with Power Weapon/Melta Bombs
- 10 Man Veteran Squad with 3 Meltaguns, 6 shotguns, and demolitions (melta and demo charge) and a Sgt. with Powerfist/Shotgun, in a Chimera with Hull-mounted Heavy Flamer and Extra Armour.
Fairly mobile squad with good shooting, decent CC (if necessary), and LD 10 thanks to the Lord Commissar. If I wanted, I can swap him out for a Primaris Psyker, and give the Chimera an upgrade or something.
List 2: Gift of Chaos Alpha Legion
- Chaos Sorcerer with Mark of Slaanesh, Melta-bombs, and Gift of Chaos.
- 5 Chaos Marines with Icon of Chaos Glory and a Meltagun, in a Rhino with Daemonic Posession and a Combi-Melta.
Again, fairly mobile squad with decent shooting, CC ability if needed, and the ability to reroll a failed Morale Check thanks to the banner. Gift of Chaos is there for fun, and lets me run the Chaos Spawn I picked up yesterday (That’s right, I’m using SPAWN!) hopefully. Daemonic Posession keeps it moving regardless of Shaken or Stunned, and keeps it focused on the objectives.
I’m thinking the Guard list, but the Chaos Marines could be fun. Any suggestions?
Next up on the painting block: Khador!
