EPIC: Ghallamore Cleansing Daemon Incursion List

Mmmm daemon-ey!

Mmmm daemon-ey!

Hi guys,

Just a quick post – I have recently updated the NetEA list I have been working on, the Ghallamore Cleansing Daemon Incursion list. It aims to represent an EPIC army composed entirely of Daemons, without relying on Chaos Space Marines, Cultists, or Daemon Engines. It is still a long way from balanced or finished, but please have a read and let me know what you think.

EPIC – Lesser Daemons

Hi again guys,

Next up are the lesser daemons for Khorne, Nurgle and Tzeentch for this army. Each gets formed into a Daemonic Horde of between 6 – 12 stands with a Herald character, and then can have a variety of upgrades. Plus, having these daemons painted up means I can use them as normal lesser daemons for my Lost and the Damned or Chaos space Marine armies.

13 Plaguebearers

13 Plaguebearers

Plaguebearers are excellent in EPIC, especially in the original rules where they were heavily armoured, good in CC, and pretty good in FF too. Still, since their downgrade (the FF got dropped to a 6+) they are still excellent at beefing up a cultist mob or providing the Daemon World list with a solid defensive formation, especially when upgraded with a Chaos Altar for AA and some 4+ Reinforced Armour.

Next up are the Khornate daemons – Bloodletters and Flesh Hounds. Both are heavily combat focused which makes them a little less useful than the mixed role Plaguebearers and the FF orientated Tzeentch daemons, however the Flesh Hounds do give a chaotic player a very sneak trick. Choosing to summon them instead of Bloodletters on a Khorne aligned formation allows for a truly gigantic engage move of 40cm. The Flesh Hounds 20cm base move is doubled as they have the Infiltrator special rule, meaning that the player can often surprise their opponent with a long engage.

12 Horrors

Last up in this post are the Tzeentch Daemons – Horrors and Flamers. Normally most of my Lost and the Damned lists are Tzeentch aligned as I like the fluff and enjoy the firefight punch they provide to the Cultists and Mutants which make up most of the list. Flamers are especially nasty with 2 x 4+ FF attacks each, which is part of the reason Horrors are the core Tzeentch daemon in the Daemon World list!

New 40k Army

New 40k Army

In other news, I have recently finished the second last chapter of my thesis, started running a Fantasy Mighty Empires Campaign for my local club, and bought a 3,000-ish point Steel Legion 40k army.

EPIC – Titan Legion Warhounds and Group Shots

Hi guys,

Still away from home at the moment but will be heading back tomorrow. Until then, this is the last post in the Titan Legion series featuring the 4 warhounds that complete the army.

Warhounds

Warhounds

There are two pairs of Warhounds to go with this Titan Legion, each set being armed differently. The first two each have an Inferno Gun (think massive flame thrower…) which with its BP3 and Ignores Cover rules makes it excellent at digging infantry out of cover something the other Titans might struggle with, and a Turbo-Laser Destructor which helps to add some long range fire-power so they are a threat while moving in.

The second pair are my armour hunting pack – armed with a Plasma Blast-Gun and a Turbo-Laser Destructor each they give great ranged threat and a good mix of MW and AT fire. Given how fast Warhounds are, the range on the TLD means that they can be hitting the enemy on the first turn. In game they seem to excel particularly at picking off the Eldar super-heavy tanks my friend Ben likes to hide in his back field.

Group 2

Group 2

So, that is my newly painted Titan Legion Army! One of the things I love about EPIC is being able to easily field a titan in a game without unbalancing it (40k Apocalypse…), and building a Titan Legion had always been something that I think really worked for EPIC. The list available for them is good, apart from the odd little thing, and it includes stats for all of the collectors weapons which I love messing about with.

Full army list, and new page, for them coming soon.

Thanks

NetEA Daemon World List

I have taken over the development of this list for the NetEA from Chroma and am really looking forward to cracking on with it. It represents a Daemon world force, so is stuffed full of gribbly monsters from the Warp!

This is my first time developing an EPIC list so please feel free to have a look at the list, available here, and let me know where you think it needs tweaking.

4k Ben’s Eldar vs. NetEA Titan Legion

Hi guys,

I ended up playing a second game of EPIC over the weekend, against my friend Ben from Forgot My Tea (see for EPIC Thousand Sons, EPIC Eldar and a WHFB Wood Elf army). We tend to play slightly larger games agaisnt each other when we play at the weekends and this one was no exception. I had told been before the game I was going to be trying out the Titan Legion but luckily for me he had not really tailored against them.

I took:

Warlord Titan w/ 2 Turbo Laser Destructors, 2 Plasma Destructor, Veteran Princeps

Reaver Titan w/ 2 Laser Burners, Titan Close Combat Weapon, Veteran Princeps

Reaver Titan w/ 2 Quake Cannons, Carapace Landing Pad, Carapace Multilasers, Legate

2 x Warhounds w/ Plasma Blast-Gun and Turbolaser Destructor

2 x Warhounds w/ Inferno Gun and Turbolaser Destructor

2 x Thunderbolts

Recon Platoon

 

The game went quite well for me, the Quake Cannon Reaver being especially snazzy! The close combat Reaver (18 CC3+ and 3 TKD3 3+) did not actually manage to get into close combat once but still minced lots of eldar in firefight. The turbolaser destructors on the Warhounds are amazing – with a 60cm range plus the warhounds speed they were sniping off Eldar SHT’s right in the backfield from turn 1. The big Warlord at almost 1000 points, shot once before being ravaged by the eldar in Turn 2.

Combined Engage on my Warlord

Having been sustained on by the Revenant Titans and reduced to only 4 DC (MW2+ Pulse is nasty!), I was less confident of my Warlord being able to control the three clustered objectives on the right hand side of the board. Ben then used his retain to move a formation of Aspect warriors up into firefight range, before triple retaining with a Wraith-ed up Guardian Host. I had left the warhound on the left of the below pic just out of support range, while one of his revenants was able to support.

Certainly pretty cinematic

It actually didn’t go too badly for the big-boy – he only lost 3DC to the engage, while stomping lots of puny eldar in return. However the dice off went against him, and clinging to life with 1DC, he had to withdraw back towards my board edge. Later, a flight of Nightwings swooped in and finished him off.

Close Combat Reaver

The picture above is of my only partially painted close-combat Reaver Titan. I have magnetised most of the titan weapons I have (hence why this one is sporting a melta-cannon rather than the Laser Burner it should be) but am on the look out to buy some more. The two Laser Burners on this Reaver make it a real beast in close combat against regular troops, allowing it to throw out 18 attacks only needing a 3+. To give it a little bit of duality and to help against any tough opposing war engines, the TCCW is great.

Quake Cannon Reaver and 2 Warhounds

The Quake Cannon Reaver, picture above, seems to be one of the internets favourites picks. Having a 6BP Macro-weapon Indirect barrage on a Reaver Titan Platform is very nasty indeed! In the game against Ben, it convincingly trashed a mounted Guardian Host in the first activation of the first turn. However the thing is expensive weighing in at 825pts once all the upgrades are bought. Worth it though!

I really enjoyed playing the Titan Legion list – a great combination of effective fire-power, resiliance from the big titans and speed from the warhounds. It is definitely something I would try again – in fact I have even been looking up titan legion colour schemes…
