*cough
anyone got any advice on what admech units are useful in a 1250 pts battle?
I think I pretty much have one of everything built and painted..

Hmm I just made what is probably the most stereotypical geman/pa Dutch sandwich possible
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 17 2018 12:36
oh do tell what is stereotypical German in your american ass opinion :P
Jon Kissinger

Grilled cheese and liverwurst sandwich
My mother made it for me a lot when I was younger
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 17 2018 12:36
oh lawd xD
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 17 2018 12:37
And she was German :p
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 17 2018 12:37
noone ever does grilled cheese here
just not a thing ;)
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 17 2018 12:38
shrugs
Might be more because her mother was from the Sudetenland then - idk shrugs still fucking delicious
Put a light pan fry on the liverwurst, spread mayo on both sides of both pieces of bread, fry one side, flip, apply cheese to both pieces, let it melt a bit, then put the liverwurst in the middle as you assemble the sandwich for the final flips
@Thairne you’re probably right though, it’s probably more penn Dutch then German
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 17 2018 12:42
if we were in GoT our words would be "we do not fry" ^^
except fries.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 17 2018 12:45
I think a lot of the American perception of German food comes from the enclaves (like the penn Dutch and the Amish, who are all just weird) mixed with the poor prewar immigrants
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 17 2018 12:46
quite possible
also, per head consumption of SAUERKRAUT is higher in the US than in Germany last time I heard.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 17 2018 12:46
Also wouldn’t surprise me
Like I said, poor common folk from the old world prewar
Y’know, back when schnitzel and kraut were German staple foods
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Oct 17 2018 12:47
mmm, sauerkraut
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 17 2018 12:48
schnitzel is still kind of in
but since it's actual meat I wouldnt call it a poor people's food
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 17 2018 12:48
I prefer pickled red cabbage to sauerkraut
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 17 2018 12:48
ah
Rotkraut ^^
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 17 2018 12:48
Indeed
my mom would serve that with home made schnitzel or roulade and mash potatoes or bread dumplings; so good
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 17 2018 12:50
this I can confirm ^^
I always loved to cut the schnitzel and mash everything together into one yellow-purplish-meaty goo
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 17 2018 12:51
mMMMMMMMMHMMMM
so good
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 17 2018 12:57
this is harder than I thought
I litterally have NO clue what to take whatsoever... I'... just take one of everything that seems prudent :P

only admech player around here usually goes with neutron laser onagers, lots of vanguards, and a big unit of infiltrating dragoons
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 17 2018 13:11
I see... yes. yes yes.
I remember the rangers being a big bag of suck... If I remove this.. and that.... I might even have enough wriggle room for a Knight..
NOT ENOUGH ROOM! ABORT MISSION! xD Jesus they got expensive..

one word
Dakkabots
they ruin everything
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 17 2018 13:15
unless you face a horde of demonettes and your wrap gets wiped out.
I have really, really bad memories using them...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Oct 17 2018 13:18
Can't speak to that, but fill the rest of the points with vanguards and cawl?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 17 2018 13:20
I'll have to see how much vanguards I actually have... which possibly will be pitifully few.
But I just found an "old" 1k list.. I guess thats a good base to work with
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Oct 17 2018 14:10
.... So you people like Saurkraut, but pinapple on pizza is taboo here?
I'm disgusted
Rangers are fine as a tax to take 3 snipers.
Dakkalans are still lovely ... I'm a fan of destroyers though they do die quickly.
and dragoons ... can never have enough dragoons
-1 to hit ... invuln, super move, S8 tesla with rend. It's delicious.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Oct 17 2018 14:13
@Kohato, that's because pineapple is a fruit, which should never be in in any hot food that isn't a dessert, and sauerkraut is delicious.
Earl Bishop

Oct 17 2018 14:14
Guardian Protocols - don't need a datasmith for that :D
The datasmith changes it to dakka or choppa protocols.
fight twice but don't shoot, or shoot twice but don't move.
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Oct 17 2018 14:15
but it was a long time ago and the player suddenly found a love for IK/BA/L32 ... so his ad mech is in the cupboard
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Oct 17 2018 14:15
See, I like big robots.
So I seem to have gravitated to robot admech ... IKs ... and Necrons lol
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Oct 17 2018 14:16
yeah .. shoot twice .. nasty ... I did screw Cawl up with a blob of 15 flayed ones tho
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Oct 17 2018 14:16
Cawl is deceptively squishy if you have dedicated melee.

is he too expensive for 1250 ?

Earl Bishop

For 1250? I think so.
Give me a tic - i'll show my preferred small game admech list.

@Thairne what are you playing against Dirk ?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Oct 17 2018 14:20
the right fruit is a good complement to any meat. pork and apple, turkey and cranberry/redcurrant, duck and plum/cherry/orange are all classic combos
but yeah, pineapple on pizza is an abomination

Drop a dunecrawler for some dragoons if you want to go stab them with lightning.
If not, keep a dominus by both ranger groups and one by the dunecrawlers.
And let loose with the dakka.
