BA Termies @ 2k

(Picture linked from Space Wolf Blog)

Today I'll be posting a few lists for BA that I've been working on. First one is an attempt at Dual Raider/Termie. I still believe the Vanilla Termies are better and more balanced but this makes a tougher rock unit which are still capable of horde control.

HQ -
Libby w/Unleash & Blood Lance

Elites -
Sang Priest x2

5x Assault Termies (4 TH/SS & 1 LC) w/LRC w/MM

5x Assault Termies (3 TH/SS & 2 LC) w/LRR w/MM

Troops -
5x ASM w/mgun, infernus pistol, Rback w/TL Heavy Flamer

5x ASM w/mgun, infernus pistol, Rback w/TL Heavy Flamer

5x ASM w/mgun, infernus pistol, Rback w/TL Heavy Flamer

Fast Attack -
Land Speeder Typhoon

Land Speeder Typhoon

Heavy Support -
Dreadnought w/2x TL autocannon

Dreadnought w/2x TL autocannon

Totals: 2000 points
9 tanks
28 infantry

So in relation to the SM list you've got less scoring ability and no Null Zone but your termies are more durable and killy with FNP/FC with the smattering of LCs allowing for some horde control and doesn't really drop the survivability too much. The Dreads & Typhoons are there for suppression fire which is pretty much the same as Vanilla but without the extra couple of MMs in midfield from the Tacs your suppression fire is a bit less with this list, which also puts the ASM in more danger as they have to get close to tank pop.

You could put something else in those Raiders like ASM or DC but you're not going to get the efficiency Termies give you but you can flesh out your balance a bit. Overall, if you want to run BA termies @2k this is prob the most balanced list you'll get with some tweaks open and whilst it plays a little bit differently from the Vanilla Termie lists, I think the Vanilla lists are better overall as they are more balanced by definition.

Yeah, think you're pretty much spot on there. Dual-Raider/Termie lists for the BA just aren't all that.

Looks nasty, but even more of a rock dealy than vanilla.
