Army Lists for Arcanacon


The last few days I've spent pondering what list id like to take to this years Arcannacon Tournament-  Last time I was very successful with a mechanised space wolf list though certain options did let me down in the end. Notably the drop pods actually hurt me in some games and Id like to revisit that list possibly as a back up if the Grey Knights are not completed in time.



With that in mind Im putting up 3 lisits here 2 of them GK lists and the 3rd the Space Wolf List I may look to take.

Space Wolf List:
1200 Pts - Space Wolves Roster

HQ: Wolf Lord in Power Armour (3#, 285 pts)
1 Wolf Lord in Power Armour, 285 pts
Runic Armour; Wolf Tail Talisman; Wolftooth Necklace; Thunderwolf Mount; Storm Shield x1; Wolf Claw x1; 2 Fenrisian Wolf

Troops: x2 Grey Hunters Pack (6#, 180 pts)
4 Grey Hunters Pack, 180 pts Wolf Standard;  Meltagun;1 Grey Hunter w/ Mark of the Wulfen
1 Razorback  Lascannon and TL Plasmagun)



Troops: Grey Hunters Pack (6#, 180 pts)
4 Grey Hunters Pack, 180 pts ; Meltagun;1 Grey Hunter w/ Mark of the Wulfen1 Razorback ; Twin-Linked Assault Cannon

Elite: Wolf Guard Pack (3#, 129 pts)
1 Wolf Guard Pack, 129 pts
3 Wolf Guard in Power Armour Combi-Meltagun x1; Power Fist x1;

Heavy Support: Long Fangs Pack (6#, 160 pts)
5 Long Fangs Pack, 160 pts; Missile Launcher x3; Plasma Cannon x2;1 Squad Leader
Heavy Support: Predator (1#, 85 pts)
1 Predator, 85 pts Autocannon; Heavy Bolter

So this list is pretty standard in that the razorback force is the same and the predator is prerty consistant with what I took last year.

The key change is the drop pods are missing as is also the dreadnought and the rune priest- this is replaced with the thunderlord - its allot of point sunk into him and I'm going to play test him over the weekend to see how he plays out but for the most part im confident he will play well-  I'm thinking this could be a good base to build on for a 1500 point list later in the year as well if I'm so inclined.


Grey Knight Variant List 1.
1200 Pts - Grey Knights Roster

HQ: Grey Knight Grand Master (1#, 230 pts)
1 Grey Knight Grand Master, 230 pts ; Terminator Armour; Psychotroke Grenades; Rad Grenades; Servo-skulls x3; Incinerator; Nemesis Force Halberd;

Troops: x2 Grey Knight Terminator Squad (5#, 225 pts)

1 Terminator Justicar ; Nemesis Force Halberd)
1 Terminator  Nemesis Force Halberd; Psycannon)
1 Terminator ; Nemesis Daemonhammer)
1 Terminator ; Nemesis Force Halberd)
1 Terminator  Nemesis Force Sword;


Fast Attack: Grey Knight Interceptor Squad (10#, 325 pts)

1 Justicar  Nemesis Daemonhammer)
3 Grey Knights  Nemesis Force Halberd)
2 Grey Knights  Psycannon)
4 Grey Knights Nemesis Force Sword

Elite: Venerable Dreadnought (1#, 195 pts)
Psybolt Ammunition; Assault Cannon; Twin-Linked Autocannon;


So this list is about shooting and heavy hitting units with swift elements at a pinch in a kill points games its only 5 KP's,  and in objective games there is the potential to make all units scoring.


All units can deepstrike/reserve  for a Null deployment type game.


Thus far in test games against harley it has been very durable.




Variant 2   swaps the dread out for a Nemesis Dreadknight with an Incinerator and a gattling psycannon- again this list has been very successful in test games thus far.


Anyway thoughts and opinions are welcome here

Have a great week
