I'm begun training for my States September Championships and I have three 35 point lists that I'm testing:
Spell Martyr 1
Bolt Thrower 5
Bolt Thrower 5
What do people think? This what I came up with on my own and I've been running them through on Vassal all week. I'm afraid they pretty much all do the exact same thing, only in slightly different ways. This seems like a real problem.
Saeryn secures assassinations with speed and denial while running Beasts.
eLylyth threatens kills from absurd ranges while using Beasts (but suffers from really horrible match ups).
pVayl jumps you with her 22" Typhon Spray and 16" Scythean threats while ... running all Beasts (she can have a hard time too, in particular Cryx debuffers, heavy attrition lists and anything thats fast with good shooting like Kraye).
I made and tested all three lists independent of each other and none of them seem strong at attrition, scoring (or even contesting) control points. So they often fall over completely in SR2012 Scenarios or if they can't get the kill.
I really want a strong Legion list that is fantastic at attrition and I'm struggling to find it.
What can I do to change this? Ideally I would like one army for assassinations, one for attrition and one sitting comfortably in the middle. Can I do this with my choice of Warlocks and still compete nationally?
How can I mix in some infantry while keeping each list rock solid?
Running so many Beasts in all three lists seems like a *huge* weakness just waiting to be exploited against me.
Thank you all for any insight you can hand out... I love each of you... In the Legionist possible way.
