Adepticon Lists - Horus Heresy, WHFB Teams & WHFB Champs

Over the last few weeks I have been working on my lists for Adepticon. I am playing in three events and am taking three different armies.

A. Horus Heresy Death Guard

Suffice to say I have no idea. I haven't played a game of 6th Ed 40k, a game of Horus Heresy or more than a dozen 5th Ed games. So I'm going very much with a fluff army with signature Death Guard Legion units. I have to bring a 1000 point and an 1850 point list for the event.

1000 Points

2x 10 man Legion Tactical Squads with Power Fist Champion and attached Apothecary
2x Contemptor Dreadnaughts with Multi Melta

1850 Points

As above plus:
Spartan Land Raider Variant
8 Deathshroud Terminators
5 Grave Warden Terminators

So the list fits the Deathguard fluff of signature units and vehicles, reliance on Walkers and Tactical Dreadnaught armour. Not expecting much but it will look nice. Now have to finish LTS, one Apothecary and Typhion - as well as a display carry tray.

B. WHFB Teams

Here I have to bring 1000 points that forms a fighting force with my teammate's force (Ogres). Fue to work commitments my original partner has had to withdraw but he has got me a replacement team mate.

I've decided to go with a variant of Tom's tried and tested Daemons of Chaos force from last year's Warpfire.

Herald of Tzeentch - General, Level 2 (Tzeencth)
Herald of Tzeentch - BSB, Level 2 (Metal)

2x 10 Pink Horrors - Standard, Musician
1x 10 Pink Horrors - Musician

3x 1 Beast of Nurgle


I think it is about as good as you can get at 1000 points....Blue Fire, Gateway for the win.

C. WHFB Champs

This is interesting as it is 2400 points with a win being worth 15 points. However you only need margin of 100 points to get the win. The extra points are for claiming objectives and I've made adjustments to my normal list to reflect that. Adepticon has stated criteria that Grey Seer must state his lore before the event so I'll be going with Ruin (Boo Hiss....I thought you guys played by the book).

Grey Seer - General, Level 4 (Ruin), Screaming Bell, Earthing Rod, Dragonbane Gem, Skalm

Chieftain - BSB (Standard of Discipline)
Assassin - Weeping Blade, Potion of Strength
Warlock Engineer - Level 1, Doomrocket, Warp Energy Condenser
Warlock Engineer - Level 1, Dispel Scroll, Ruby Ring of Ruin
Warlock Engineer - Potion of Foolhardiness

39 Clanrats - Full Command, Shields
22 Stormvermin - Standard (Storm Banner), Musician
2x 40 Slaves - Champ, Muso
1x 39 Slaves - Champ, Muso
2x 2 Rat Swarms

1x 6 Gutter Runners - Slings, Poison
1x 5 Gutter Runners - Slings, Poison

Hell Pit Abomination
Warplightning Cannon

This is basically a tweaked version of my Masters list. The event is no comp but I've resisted the temptation to take two HPAs or multiple WLCs (yes I was sorely tempted to take two cannons). Hopefully the list is well rounded given the - currently hidden - scenarios. But I'm also mindful that in the Mid-West Sports = Comp so I wanted to veer nearer the centre of the pack than the extreme.

I'm tidying up the two Fantasy armies this weekend looking to pick up the checklist painting scores.

Only 2.5 weeks away.
