Battlefield Birmingham 2013

So as far as I'm aware there's quite a few of us going to this n it seems like it it'll be a lot of fun! I figured I'd start a threat for us to post our potential lists and tactics up as well as any recommendations/constructive criticism about each others army. Also I was hoping guys that have been to the previous event could let the rest if us know what to expect! Smile

Looks good to me mate! Although your list seems similar to mine in the fact it might struggle with flyers! Especially those pesky Necron av13 ones.

Any ideas?

i thought Necron flyers were AV12? if they're AV13 thats scary.

My anti air is the Contemptor Dreadnought, has skyfire and interceptor and the kheres is BS5, 12 shots S6 Rending (so any 6's are auto pens on AV12) it also has the cyclone s8 two shots.

flyers are always a worry though

also cant your hive tyrant vector strike them?

Ohh right, didn't realise the Contemptors had skyfire etc that's awesome! They may be AV12? Happy days if so!

Yeah contemptor if it doesn't move can fire skyfire with interceptor in that turn. range on the Kheres is only 24inches though.... still the cyclone is 48.

Other option with it for 5 points more is two twinlinked lascannons, thats a nice bit of anti flyer.

5 points? That's amazing Confused all I really have is my Hive Tyrants weapons that obviously fire at normal BS if its in the air. Other than that I'm hoping for 6's! Although I have emailed Harry Allen to get his verdict on bugs using quad guns lol

Fingers crossed Big Grin
