I don’t think destroyers are bad! I just think they are overpriced for what they do!

3 of them are 50pts more expensive than a Neutron Crawler which is just insane!

Really enjoyed this list analysis, dare say my favourite and Bravo Stig for mixing it up.

Hey Stig, any plans on using the Forgeworld drill? It seems to be the new hotness for competitive AdMech, especially for Stygies players . . .

Really enjoyed that guys … loved both lists. As an Ad Mech player I am always looking for new load outs and there was some great insights there …. I don’t play 40k comps so tend to just throw in the stuff I like. That backline of 6 Shooty Bots is very scary.

Much respect for thinking out of the box Stig. It’s funny, with most codices, we only ever really see a small percentage of what GW wrote, rules wise. I get it, there’s usually a good reason, especially with regards to tournaments. But I think with the new Narrative Bat Reps you guys are doing, it’s the perfect opportunity to showcase some of the lesser used forgeworlds/chapters/craftworlds/masques etc etc.

I don’t know, having the techpreist as warlord can totally be fluffy. Cawl is constantly wrapped up in experiments and the big picture of maintaining the Imperium, it’d make sense that something as trivial as a two thousand point skirmish would be left to a subordinate. Hell even my Chef used to leave us to deal with the lunch rush because he had too much going on: )

I’ve always thought it was ‘Ah-grip-In-Aah’ but I guess if it’s ‘Skit-Ar-ee’ then it must be ‘Ah-Grip-Een-Ahh’.

Great video though 🙂

Rage of the Machine Stratagem is only one vehicle though, isn’t it? I don’t think you can use it on a unit of 6.

Oh looks like we have a special guest for this weeks list analysis and it’s none other than our tame wargamer
Some say he wants to know what love is and he wants YOU to show him
And that he’s invented a new type of sherbert made from lollipops that have been ground down into a powder, he calls it Candy Crush
All we know is… he’s called The Stig

Stig, I love the thinking out of the box. You took what the man wanted and you made it work to the best you could…you didnt just say “sorry man” and try to sell him on something else. Mucho respect my man. That being said I think there are some serious weaknesses but I think they can be addressed. Instead of 6 dakka bots, try 2 units of 3, 3 having triple phosphor and 3 having fists and flamers. Now even at 1750 you’re still getting the flexibility of a high rate of fire, and the combat deterrent. Also gives… Read more »

Just a fyi – rage of the machines is for ‘an Adeptus mechanicus vehicle’. Keyword ‘an’. Not for a whole unit so effectivly useless on everything in the codex. Unless you want a single bot to not have the penalty that is.

Each Helverin is 4d3 shots, 2d3 per gun. Both Helverin and Armigers have their place. Before going on to the next paragraph(it’s a bit of a rant, sorry) I like that little detachment with the Preceptor and Helverin, 4++ Warlord trait for 1CP for the Peceptor and 1 more CP for the Helm Dominatus (+1 to hit for Armigers units with 6) and it’s a nasty little detachment. Okay onto the rant. Its funny you don’t rate the Valiant Bone, I think a lot of people run him as Imperialis for the Flamer and this is a fatal mistake. I… Read more »
