DaBoyz GT Primer

DaBoyz GT is coming up in November and we're now in the testing stages.  Tomorrow will be the first of 2 Primer events ironing out any issues with scoring, pairing and missions.  I'll be taking pics and will be giving out my feedback here and elsewhere.

Wow, wonder what kind of Comp score you'll get

Is there a negative?

Man I was hoping you wouldn't.

I just hope there's enough bodies to prevent me from pairing off with you lol.

Chumbalaya said...

Well, Loganwing is all I have prepped and ready to go, so pray hard :P

I may surprise you at the actual event ;)

I will be surprised if you don't win. ;)

Just a thought, have you considered putting a few combi-meltas on some of the wolf guards? Seems like it would help.

Chumbalaya said...

Winning on BPs is one thing, Comp plays a huge factor in both Overall and Best General (25% and 50% respectively) so I'd have to really stomp face with this list to get anything done.

Combi-meltas have been on my radar for a while, it's just the lack of model holding me back. I'm going to try some out and hopefully get them done before BFS.

I've been working on a list based on this for a little bit now. I've been running Bjorn as the second HQ and 2 squads of GH with meltaguns and 2 5-man WG with cyclone & powerfist as troops.

I've really liked the GH so far, especially for the extra bodies, but I haven't quite got Bjorn to do everything i want. I'm thinking about getting 2 rune priests to get some more high strength shots and some psychic defense coverage and using the rest of the points on more WG/upgrades. I'll be moving 1 WG each to the grey hunters so my whole army still has Ld 9.

In the long fangs, I'm running basically 10 missile launchers and 4 lascannons.

What are your thoughts on these changes. I'm still growing into the list and figuring out some nuances of Space Wolves, but it is so much easier to work with than my normal Dark Angels stuff.

Chumbalaya said...

Bjorn and Logan is a huge chunk of points. Bjorn is neat, but getting first turn isn't as much of a necessity with the foot set up, mostly because you can't get your cyclones shaken and you can move and fire.

I like the GH giving more bodies, that's always handy in an elite army.

It sounds good to me. I like having my assault screen of TWC and Lone Wolves, but 20 bodies backed up by all that firepower fills a similar role. One thing you may want to look into is adding in some mobility, even if it's just some Rhinos or TWC.

RayJ said...

Oh I already have 2x TWC and 2x Lone Wolves as a screen out front, similar to your army. I was mainly pointing out the differences from your original list.

I've put some numbers together, and I think 2 rune priests and 2 power weapon wolf guard added to the GH will be really good, and still keeps up the shooty.

Chumbalaya said...

Ah, got it. Sounds like a good plan.
