£100 Armies – The Rest

Well the last few days have been a little crazy, with 5000+ hits on the blog in two days as Specialist Games went under, and some very bad food poisoning at my end.

Prior to hearing the news, I had dug up some more 3000pt Epic lists for less than £100 (£150 buying new), and it seems like a shame to let them go to waste so I am going to pop them all into one blog post and leave them up on the web to serve as decent beginner lists for anyone thinking of starting Epic to come across. Plus, you should be able to pick most of this stuff up on ebay!

 

 

Space Marines

Space Marines

TACTICAL DETACHMENT [400] 6 Tacticals, 3 Rhinos, Supreme Commander

TACTICAL DETACHMENT [350] 6 Tacticals, 3 Rhinos, Captain

ASSAULT DETACHMENT [225] 4 Assault units, Chaplain

ASSAULT DETACHMENT [225] 4 Assault units, Chaplain

DEVASTATOR DETACHMENT [300] 4 Devastators, Librarian

DEVASTATOR DETACHMENT [300] 4 Devastators, Librarian

WHIRLWINDS [300] 4 Whirlwinds

TERMINATOR DETACHMENT [375] 4 Terminators, Captain

TERMINATOR DETACHMENT [325] 4 Terminators

THUNDERHAWK [200]

£67.40 (SM Coy Box, Rhino Box, Characters, Whirlwinds, Terminators, Thunderhawk)

Strong infantry presence, and air assault from Termies or Assault / Devastators in the Thunderhawk, while the Whirlwinds and Tacticals give you good mid-field control. It is a little weak in long ranged firepower, and lacks AA completely.

 

 

 

Eldar

Eldar

ASPECT WARRIOR WARHOST [600] 8 Dire Avenger, 4 Wave Serpent, Autarch, Exarch

GUARDIAN WARHOST [300] Farseer, 7 Guardians, 3 Wraithguard

WINDRIDER TROUPE [200] 6 Jetbike

RANGER TROUPE [150] 6 Ranger

NIGHTWINGS [300] 3 Nightwing Interceptors

ENGINES OF VAUL TROUPE [250] Void Spinner

ENGINES OF VAUL TROUPE [250] Void Spinner

GUARDIAN WARHOST [150] Farseer, 4 Guardians, 3 Heavy Weapon Platform

REVENANT TITANS [650] 2 Revenant Titans

GUARDIAN WARHOST [150] Farseer, 4 Guardians, 3 Heavy Weapon Platform

£109.30 (Warhost Box, Nightwings, 2 x void Spinners, Weapon Platforms, Revenants)

Eldar are quite expensive! The Aspects in Wave Serpents are fearsome, as are the Revenants in this size of list, while the Void Spinners and Rangers can effectively hold the backfield. Although the Guardians are quite delicate, once they are in decent area cover they will be decidedly hard to shift off an objective, while providing a little supporting fire. Nightwings give excellent AA and AT power to the list.

 

 

 

Steel Legion

Steel Legion

REGIMENTAL HQ [500] Supreme Commander, 12 Infantry, 7 Chimera

THUNDERBOLT FIGHTERS [150] 2 Thunderbolts

THUNDERBOLT FIGHTERS [150] 2 Thunderbolts

MECHANISED INFANTRY COMPANY [400] Commander, 12 Infantry, 7 Chimera

SUPER-HEAVY TANK COMPANY [500] 3 Shadowsword

ARTILLERY BATTERY [250] 3 Basilisks

ARTILLERY BATTERY [250] 3 Basilisks

FLAK BATTERY [150] 3 Hydra

ROUGH RIDER PLATOON [150] 6 Rough Riders

ROUGH RIDER PLATOON [150] 6 Rough Riders

SENTINEL SQUADRON [100] 4 Sentinels

SENTINEL SQUADRON [100] 4 Sentinels

ROUGH RIDER PLATOON [150] 6 Rough Riders

£108.40 GW (Infantry Coy, 2 x Chimera, Rough Riders, Sentinels, Hydras, 2 x Thunderbolts)

£35.84 FW (2 x Medusa, 3 x Shadowswords)

Bit of a strange IG list, with a lot of light formations like the Rough Riders and Sentinels. These are needed to counterweight the pricey SHT Company and Mechanized Companies, and to screen them from unwanted attention. The Hydras provide a strong AA component, leaving the Thunderbolts free to be aggressive in targeting enemy formations.

 

 

 

Orks

Orks

WARBAND (BIG) [490] 12 Boyz, 4 Grotz, 4 Nobz

WARBAND (BIG) [490] 12 Boyz, 4 Grotz, 4 Nobz

STORMBOYZ WARHORDE [150] 6 Stormboyz

STORMBOYZ WARHORDE [150] 6 Stormboyz

MEKBOY GUNMOB [200] 5 Big Gunz, Big Gunz (Soopagun Odd Boy)

MEKBOY GUNMOB [200] 5 Big Gunz, Big Gunz (Supa-Zzap Odd Boy)

LANDA [200]

KULT OF SPEED [200] 6 Buggy, 2 Skorcha

KULT OF SPEED [200] 6 Buggy, 2 Skorcha

WARBAND [270] 6 Boyz, 2 Grotz, 2 Nobz

BLITZ BRIGADE [150] 4 Deth Kopta

BLITZ BRIGADE [150] 4 Deth Kopta

FIGHTA SQUADRON [150] 3 Fighta Bomba

£104.30 (Ork Horde, Big Gunz, Soopa Gunz, Landa, 2 x Kult, Deth Koptas, Fighta Bommas)

While the two Big Warbands and Big Gun formations can hold / move onto objectives, the two small Kults and the Deth Coptas give more activations as well as speed to the army. The Landa poses a double threat – an air assault with the Boyz, or just a number of decent strafing runs, while the FB’s should help you attain air superiority so that the Landa doesn’t get shot down!

 

 

 

Titan Legion

Titan Legion

WARHOUND TITAN [275] Plasma Blastgun, Vulcan Megabolter

WARHOUND TITAN [275] Vulcan Megabolter, Plasma Blastgun

REAVER TITAN [775] 3 Laser Blaster, Veteran Princeps, Single Weapon System Surcharge

REAVER TITAN [675] 3 Apocalypse Rocket Launcher, Veteran Princeps

REAVER TITAN [850] 3 Laser Blaster, Legate, Carapace Multi-Lasers, Single Weapon System Surcharge

THUNDERBOLT FIGHTERS [150] 2 Thunderbolts

£95.5 (2 x Warhound, Thunderbolts, 3 x Reaver)

Slightly different list, and not one I would recommend for a beginner to Epic. In 3000pts, 3 Reavers are exceptionally scary and I would recommend arming them like the above so they can concentrate on roles rather than not being very efficient. 18 x AT3+ will put a big dent in any formation you are likely to see at this points level, while the Warhounds and Thunderbolts provide speed and long range.

    Both the eldar and space marine lists I can put together out of my smaller collection. I noticed back when I was actively getting stuff on ebay that the stugg from the epic 40K time is the most available while the stuff that was resculpted or new with EA is harder to come by.

    Similar to blood bowl with 3ed edition stuff is most common followed by 2ed but the newest things 4+ are hardest to find and often counterfit.

    Thanks for the comment. Yes quite a lot of the old multi-part stuff is the most difficult to come by – just look at the E40k era Chimera or Russ – while on the other end the newest stuff is also often hard to find – like the Revenant Titans.

    • eriochrome says:

      My personal preference is usually the Space Marine Era stuff but the new Revenant is so much better than the old one that I had to get a set.

    Hey mate, now specialist games is gone and buried can you please update your 100 pound armies to show which anonymous internet retailer is selling the proxies? (ie for Krieg) It is quite hard to get into epic as it isnt obvious what is the usual proxy, and the models are not very visible on most of the websites

    • Gus says:

      Hi Chris,

      I will have a go someday at converting these lists over to proxies but often your best bet is still eBay. Many of the proxy makers do not like to advertise as they can run into issues with GW legal.
