Goatboy’s 40k – For the Glory of Titan & Caliban!

4 Minute Read

Goatboy here and lists are not always about winning.   This list isn’t about making a cool looking model – this is about make a bunch of “character” bad asses that you can build out into a unique looking army.

A lot of the time the idea is to make a cool looking model and see if I can build something around it. It won’t win that much – but if you paint it up right it  could win some awards for being amazing looking.  It all revolves around how you convert and update some of these models.

Before I dig into the math – the idea really has been burning in my head since I saw another player have a bunch of awesome looking DreadKnights doing the Emperor’s good work versus daemons.  Each one was in a fight for their lives and I always thought it was a really unique and pretty looking army.  I knew it wouldn’t work too well – but at the very least it would be fun to build and paint.  Now with hate updated CA (Didn’t do enough) and the upcoming Psychic Awakening that covers both sides of this army – we  could have something better than bad.  Maybe even kinda meh+?

The other side of the army is my brain saying that Talonmasters have to be good.  Just imagine if we saw a small change in the rules – vehicles can move and fire heavy weapons and maybe Talon Masters drop in points?  I was hoping CA would drop them down to 160 with weapons.  Sadly they didn’t so maybe will see some sweet strats or other weird rules for the Ravenguard.  Or at the very least some relics that love being strapped to Speeder bodies.

Enough waxing poetic – lets work on the list.  If we get some good Warlord traits for both armies we could set up some cool little bad asses so while it looks like a mess – just remember this is design to be a pretty army with model modifications, themes to the bases, and whatever other things you’d want to work your hobby muscles on.

PTS: 1986 CP: +13 currently – if we see better stuff in psychic awakening this could go down.

Tactics

This isn’t an amazing list – it is a list of giant men in robot suits, speeders running around, and hopefully opponents who can blow up a ton of stuff a turn.  You will most likely deep strike the 3 Nemesis Dreadknights with Incinerators and maybe the Strike Squads as you have enough other stuff on the table top. As I built this list in Battlescribe I just was sad as this looks awesome in the fluff but rules wise it is lacking.  But – we do have hope as new rules are coming.

Sometimes the rule of cool and the hope you can win a game or two is enough to satisfy your Warhammer hungry as you battle the tables during an event.
