Hey Lawrence,
what do you think is a more powerful Drukhari list, cmpared to yours @ NoRetreat?
Maybe some deeper thoughts for your “onDemand” Bosses ;)???
Thanks Chris

Realy fun to hear somebody stress the importance of the negative modifier to hit. Alot of people are talking of Astra as OP and broken but I dont see it that way. More and more players are looking on ways to finalize on the minus to hit on their list and thats devastating for Astra lists. Seen lists spamming alpha legion obliterators with -2 to hit due to changeling etc. Playing a 4+ lists against those odds the mass shooting doesnt realy mean a thing if you cant hit Well. Realy cool Vox and congratz on the win Lawrence.

Solid tactics with the screeners Lawrence. Funny I have been doing something similar but in a vastly different way. I have been taking footslogging warriors and no venoms and instead I have a couple units of 10 mandrakes which pop in an absolutely mulch anything they want. But for screening and area denial I have been taking an outrider detachment with 6 individual clawed fiends. They are only 32 points a piece, have a massive footprint and are easy to hide then pop out and get in the way or also charge into and tie up enemy vehicles. In my… Read more »

Interesting stuff Lawrence – congratulations! Question: what sort of variety was there in terms of the armies and lists being taken? I remember you saying in the last days of 7th that the lack of variety was indicating that the game was in a poor state – does it look like the situation is improving?

Do you reckon/hope they will address the HQ issue by releasing Vect with the Codex?

Fantastic review! Congrats with the second place – it’s still a very worthy achievement, especially considering the opposition.
The army review is great too, agree with pretty much all of your points 🙂 Massed -1 to hit does count – in fact, it only truly counts when it’s massed, otherwise the actual difference is barely noticeable against the random deviations.
Thanks!

It was awesome to meet you in Gibraltar, mister Spider! As a Drukhari player I was particularly interested in seeing what you could do in a tournament format, having watched your competitive Drukhari list duke it out against the Ultramarines list you whipped up last month or so. I completely agree, until the codex comes out and we are told otherwise, the way you’re running your 2k list is probably the most effective. Venoms are boss, Warriors are boss, Archons are a bit meh. I love Wyches, I think they’re so cool and fluffy – Succubi too – but if… Read more »

Lawrence, I know I may be asking for a bit here, but seriously can you stop teasing us about these ‘secret’ or otherwise ‘special’ projects you have and actually… you know… reveal them? Show them? Use them? You are amongst the worlds biggest hobby teasers lol, considering we’ve been waiting for them for month(s) now and if I thought I was impatient before, holy molly for it now.

Haha, “2+ invulnerable save is ok” lol. Understatement really 😉

Great result on 2nd Lawrence, especially since SN weren’t running any kind of comp system for NRV. Weird how you always seem to end up facing Chema, and he always gives you a tough fight as well.

Hello Lawrence. Thanks for all the advice. I was looking forward to this video!
I have some listbuilding/unit question I wanted to ask you for some time now.

1) In your games in 8th did you encounter the situation that you run out of good targets for your dark lances and wished you would have brought some disintegrator cannons or reapers (FW) for anti infantry?

2) If you would want to maximize your army for über- competitive purposes neglecting fluff etc what changes would you do? (Staying still Drukhari but maybe borrowing out a Farseer or other HQs)
