@FarseerVeraenthis i just played it twice to be honest, 1 win and 1 loss... I like them but I feel like they cost a lot, I had success when building a kill team specifically to destroy one single enemy unit
I suspect the models are green because it is a "Imperial transmission" and they are all washed out green... Otherwise that is quite funny :-)
as for my Deathwatch @Crowbar90 my record is not exactly stella, I've found they don't work too well in low points games because you only need a couple of models to fail their saves (if they get any) and it seriously harms your firepower... Having said that, my last game I tabled my opponent (in Turn 6) through a combination of a number of lucky shots and lucky saves. You definitely need to tailor your army to your opponent hence, even though they have a lot of flexibility, I don't think they will be good at tournaments...
@FarseerVeraenthis@Crowbar90 heh - my one main game I ran with my deathwatch was a 1500 pt game - strat command w/ Aquila KT, Corvus, SoS in a Raz, and custodes- that game was interesting vs sallies using the dismount-shoot-remount force
@FarseerVeraenthis Yeah, in low points they can't really shine, points costs are really high. My last game was a low points one (550 deathwatch + 450 admech vs 1000 tyr). We won it, but only because we have been really lucky with tactical objectives!
@alphalas that sounds nice! My list for that game was a Black Spear, formed by Captain w/Thief of Secrets, Ven Dread with Deathwind drop pod and an Aquila KT (2 shotguns, 2 bolters, frag cannon, blackshield, 1 vanguard vet w/power sword)
hehehe :-) my last game was 800 points CAD (our "Tale of Gamers" doesn't allow formations until round 4), I had Nihilus, 2 x Veteran squads, one in a razorback, one in a drop pod, 3 Vanguard Vets and a captain. the drop pod squad included 2 x shotguns, 1 x frag cannon, 1 x flamer and a Sarge with a combi-melta . The melta 1-shotted a land raider <-- this was a game changer :-)
deep striking the Vanguard Vets (with Storm shields) is a really good way of distracting people, but they do take a lot of fire as a result!!
alphalas, how did the Corvus go?? that is my purchase for the next round of my Tale, I want epic launching assault from the flyer action #becauseruleofcool
